Just got back from Fort Myers. Team finished 4-1-1. Missed bracket by giving up 1 to many runs (1st game.......6-1 lead through 5. Gave up 2 in 6th and 2 in 7th). Those runs ended up killing us.
Winner take pool game vs. eventual #1 seed ended up 1-0 (run scored on an IFH, and 3 passed balls/WP). Both teams threw 2 hitters.
The talent down there is just outrageous. It's hard to tell people of the difference between a local tournament and these.
Overall a great experience for my 2022. Got 2 innings of work (2H, 0BB, 0R, 1K) and went 2/4 with 2 singles. Would have played more, but tweaked knee in 2nd game and was shut down until consolation where coach put him in for an AB (danged if he didn't almost hit it to LC fence for a S). Should have heard the boys yelling for him to "go to 2, go to 2". Loved that he didn't get down and helped out the team however.
Played with some new friends, met some old ones, and enjoyed some baseball.
We had a few new international players on our team, son says "i've learned some new words......"
Now to take the rest of the fall off, work hard, and be ready for HS season.
Everyone have a safe rest of fall.
