Drew Steps Up To The Plate

Baseball season started again a few weeks ago. Drew is on the same team as last season. Now, they are the New York Yankees!

Daddy has always cheered for the Yankees (he is from New York), so we were very excited! Drew loves having Daddy for an assistant coach.

And, besides me, Abby is his biggest fan!

Drew is playing 3rd base this season. He's really improved in his fielding thanks to lots of practice with Daddy!

After getting one of his five outs for the game, Drew throws the ball back to the pitcher.

First time at bat. Drew got two hits off the coach's pitch at this game! No tee needed for this little dude!!

The following pictures are a few action shots as Drew makes his way around the bases to score a run for the Yankees!

The game was great! The players did very well and everyone had fun. After the game, the coach awarded the game ball. We were so excited to see Coach hand the ball to our Drew!

Drew's game stats were 5 outs, 2 hits, and 1 run scored. A great game!

Drew had a big cheering section for his first game. Grandma & Grandpa, Grams, and Uncle Adam were all able to come watch and to see Drew earn his MVP game ball!

Our little family is so proud of Drew! He has worked hard to improve this season and is really enjoying playing baseball.

Go Yankees!

I love your little family! I forwarded my sister-in-law your blog about Abby's mani/pedi and she nearly died! They just had a little girl themselves so she can't wait to be able to do the same.

As a side note, your Mom looks awesome! I had to do a double take on the picture of the whole group. :)
