2007 Baseball Game #1

Jack played in the first baseball game of the season. He moved up to AA this year. His team played against the Red Sox. Jack played shortstop, first, pitcher, and catcher in the five inning game. Playing shortstop in the first inning, he made a great diving backhand stop to his right. You could see him thinking about trying to make the throw from the ground, but he got back to his feet and threw a strike to first base. The runner beat the throw but rounded first towards second. The first baseman threw him out at second.

At bat, Jack had a walk and a single back up the middle for an RBI. He also stole third and scored a run.

They gave up 6 runs in the top of the fifth to lose by a score of 11 to 9. Their record for the season is 0 wins and 1 loss.

The coach presented two golden baseball to the players after the game: one for sportsmanship and one for player of the game. Jack got the ball for player of the game.
