take me out to the ballgame

Wow! I got a chance to attend the first round of the Minnesota Baseball Tournament yesterday. Evan and the Red Rock Central Westbrook Walnut Grove team played Fosston. The game started at 12:30. I arrived about 1:15 and got a chance to wave to Evan as he was in mid center field during the top of the 2nd inning.

Throughout the game, I gave running commentary to Brad.
1. Evan hit a nice single to center and RRC just scored their 4th run
2. Evan stole home on a wild pitch
3. Score is 7-1 in the bottom of the 4th
4. Another hard hit to center. Fielder dropped the ball so it was a single by error
5. He just had a great catch in center to end the top of the 5th
6. There's a kid named Cole Olson from Fosston--cool huh? Evan also had another nice catch.
7. Another nice hit by Evan and got to 2nd on a bunt.
8. Bases loaded bottom of 6th. 10-1. 1 out.
9. Bases loaded bottom of 6th. 2 out.
10. Batter is walked and Evan comes in for the winning run.

Next game...same location against Parkers Prairie (ranked 1st) while RRC/WWG is ranked 4th. The game is today and Joan has assured me that she will keep me posted as the game progresses ;).

Because I love statistics, the Falcons are now ranked 79th in MN and 3920 in the nation.
Parkers Prairie is ranked 40th in MN and 2129 in the nation.
