World Series Update...
We arrived in Collierville, TN late Friday night so we could be here in time for the "Team Check In". During and after the team check in our players were running around trading team pins. I think most of them traded with every team in our division. Saturday evening all teams were invited to a bar b que that was held in the "old" town square. I must admit that this was the best opening night we have been to. Other places have the teams parade around then sit while a "unknown" person gives a speech. Trust me... this was heaven!
Sunday we played our first game at 2pm against the Texan Senators. We won that game 3-2. Our next game was against the Collierville Reds. They are local team that was asked to play to even the number of teams from 19 to 20. We understood that they weren't that good and almost took them for granted. Well... the first inning they scored 5 runs on us! WOW! Well, we answered that with 6 runs. Our bats came alive!!! This game Chandler hit two triples and one home run!!! Great hits!!!! The final score was 14-7! Monday we play our last "pool" game at 2pm against the Mississippi Mustangs. Bracket play will begin Tuesday.
I will keep you posted!
