The 2018 Nevada District 1 All Star Tournament… Day 3

Photo of the Day for Friday… (sorry for the delay, been at the park more than at home for the last 100 hours…)

Effort of the Day we’ll call this… and while he didn’t make the out… this is the effort that it takes sometimes to win… Carson Valley ended up winning this game, can’t help but think that if you have enough of a team making this effort that good things will happen!!

The 2018 Nevada District 1 All Star Tournament… Day 2

Photo of the Day!  Some great plays happening out at the park!  This one caught my eye early… really great to see a hard charging shortstop (10/11 year old…) going after this ball to make the play and get the out at first!  Well done!

The 2018 Nevada District 1 All Star Tournament… Day 1

The first day is in the books!  I have to go with a double Photo of the Day and it goes to the poof of dirt off the catcher’s glove! 🙂

There are some things I always try to get every year, some are harder than others so the quest will always continue… this is one of those things (along with bat on ball, close plays at 2nd and 3rd, etc., etc….) so stay tuned!

Photo of the Day, Day 10… what looked like something that was going to be a close call ended up being… well, blocked by a leg! 🙂

Going with the ball squish on the bat! Almost doesn’t look real to me!  The Junior Tournament started Wednesday… this was from the Reno American vs. Truckee-North Tahoe (TNT) game yesterday.

The 2017 Nevada District 1 All Star Tournament… Day 4

OK, this story is just too good not to share!  I’m in a unique position, I spend a large part of the tournament kneeling in front of the dugouts on all the fields… so I get to hear a lot of what goes on with the kids.  Well, on Saturday… as this fella’s running out to bat, someone in the dugout yells, “… I’ll give you 10 bucks if you hit a home run!”… so out he trots to the dish… I believe the other team was making a pitching change so the 3rd base coach was chatting with him and very distinctly (as you can see in the photo…) where he wanted him to drive the ball… 🙂

Up to the plate, thank you very much, I’ll just go yard with that one!  … and with a  huge smile (you’ll have to look that photo up in the gallery…) the first words he says when he returns from his journey around the bases… “… you owe me 10 bucks!” 🙂
