The 2017 Nevada District 1 All Star Tournament… Day 3

Sorry, got a little behind with Photo of the Day… Friday night’s 7:30 game brought me my photo of the day… This is my 11th year shooting all star tournaments, so I’ve seen a lot of things out here.  I wanted to give this fella a shout out for his performance on Friday night.

When you walk up to a field with the 12’s you see a full range of sizes, some kids have hit that growth spurt and others haven’t… but baseball is a sport that doesn’t require a particular physique… at the beginning of the game, you can always kinda hear the hushed chatter of the kids making “impressions” of the pitchers that are warming up… these days a lot of these kids are playing each other in travel ball tournaments so sometimes they know each other…

So… I wanted to give a shout out to Mr. Davis.  He’s not 6 foot, 220 lbs. but at the end of the game, he was STILL on the mound for Reno American with the win.  Bravo for doing your job!

I believe it is my sporting obligation to choose the “bat on ball grand slam” as today’s Photo of the Day! 🙂 How can ANYONE argue with THAT call? 🙂Carson Valley Little League

Getting down to just a few teams left in the hunt for the championships for each age division… Some really close games tonight along with some really great plays!  Well done players!

Have to go with this one tonight for Photo of the Day… I wasn’t on the ball enough to actually get the play he made but a huge ball of dirt swallowed him… but he made the play and kept the ball in the infield! 🙂

The 2016 Nevada District 1 All Star Tournament… Day 5

Day 5 in the books, day off tomorrow!  Whew!  We’re tired!

Today started the “going home” stage of the tournaments… that ramps up the “urgency” for me in getting photos, it’s been a busy weekend with long hours!  We get a break for the 4th of July Holiday tomorrow and back at it Tuesday evening.

We’ll see you at the field on Tuesday!
