Patrick had his first year playing little league… and he loved it!  He played in the minors – 8,9,10 year olds, and as he is 9, he started one year late. but like his old man, he hits and throws lefty…looking to work on his pitching so I can retire early!! 🙂  He had a great time, and his team made it into the third round of the playoffs, losing 3-2 in the last of the final inning.  Anyone who has seen little league knows that 3-2 is a WAY LOW score… it was an awesome game!!  The pic of his batting shows the ball on the way out to the outfield for a clean single!
