Brody bats 1.000!!!

Today was the last game of the season for Brody's 7UAA Marlins.  Before we left for the game I told Mike that I had butterflies in my stomach!  We hadn't told Brody how good his batting average was this season because we didn't want him to focus on a number.  A few weeks ago he told me, "You know Momma?  One thing I think I'm doing better at this season is hitting.  I don't remember, but I may not have gotten out at all." 

I wanted to jump up and down and say, "You're right!  You're batting 1.000 right now!  That means you've had a hit EVERY at bat!  So don't mess up these last few gotta get a hit every at bat to keep your record going!"  Instead I replied, "I think you are doing better.  Just take it one pitch at a time and make sure you concentrate on making each hit a good one." 

Brody was first in the line up this year (meaning he got more at bats during each game).  The last game today was the most nervewracking for me!'s only 7UAA baseball...but I wanted to see the look on his face when Mike told him about his record!  I wanted it for him so bad!  Each time he was at the plate I watched on the edge of my seat as time after time he'd make a solid hit and get on base. 

Mike and I high fived after the game....Brody did it!  He had a hit and got on base every single at bat this season!  I think a few buttons popped off Mike's shirt tonight...

I waited with anticipation to see Brody's reaction when Mike gave him the news that he finished the season with 1.000 batting average.  After hearing about how proud we are of him, Brody looked up at Mike and said, "Isn't that what you're supposed to do?  Aren't you supposed to get a hit every at bat?!"

It was during Victorian times when charms became chic and were utilised for
decorative purposes. - Right-click again and select
paste to put the file name in a very row about the
spreadsheet. Some with the necklaces on offer from Dogeared are intended to be given
as "wishing necklaces" - the receiver can come up with a wish
or several wishes, which should all come true once the necklace wears through (they're created from very light material).
