"Love is the most important thing in the world, but baseball is pretty good, too!" ~Greg, age 8

The Diamondbacks really showed up and showed off last night! It was the first night of the single-elimination championship tournament for Jacob's league and those boys played like they wanted it, winning 14-4 in the 4th inning!

It was an 8:00 game and I had the privilege of being there to witness the team really come together like never before. You see, the Diamondbacks regular season record is 3-8. Needless to say, they weren't at the top of the standings. But, last night you would have thought they were regular season champs. Each player showed up ready and played with all their heart.

The highlights of the night included one player knocking it out of the park over the left field fence, another player ripping one into the outfield for a triple, and a double play at second and first.

Jacob was a hitter and smacked a line drive past the second baseman. He also made an awesome play at second for an out! As always, he hustled behind the plate and was really in the game last night!

I am so proud of those kiddos! They'll play again tonight (against the regular season champs) at 8:00. Matt will be there to watch and support them.

So, since I won't be there:
