Jr. Player of the Week and game highlights
Our feature player this week needs no introduction to the community as he and his family are well known by all--Senior Lyle, aka son of Lyle's dad. Lyle joined the ball league in October and has taken to the sport like a fish to water. His attendance is almost perfect, missing only two appearances so far this season. He is developing into a first rate short stop--his favourite position,but is willing to play others when called upon, and his batting skills improve weekley. His enthusiasim is contagious and his Spanish is a great help to the coaching staff.
Yesterday's game between the Lobos and the Osos was as entertaining and exciting as always. Both teams giving it their all. Two of the younger Lobos surprised the coaches, the fans, (and themselves) with their hits. Both Vincente, and Isac sent balls into the outfield each time they were at the plate. (And if you knew how small these kids are you'd be amazed as well. It just proves once again, that size doesn't matter.)
On side for the Osos' Jose Angel has to be applauded for his skill in the outfield. Yes folks we have "Angels in the Outfield", and this boy truly has wings on his feet and magic in his glove. Many of the Lobos' bats were stilled by this young man.
We also had 2 more young ladies sign up and are eager to play. This now balances out teams in being Co-Ed.
Final score of the game--Lobos-20, Bears-15
Lobos now lead the series by 1 game.
Senior Division game today at 4:00 at the sports field--hope to see you there!!
