2008 Fall Baseball Game 11

Jack played in his eleventh game of the 2008 fall baseball season. The Yankees played a team with red baseball shirts for the second time.

With the temperature over a 100 degrees at the start of the game and most of the kids starting back to school this week, the team was very lethargic.

At the plate, Jack was 1 for 1 with a walk. He walked in his first plate appearance. In his second at-bat, Jack hit a grounder down the third base line. The grass was the longest I have ever seen it at Rau (they must cut it on Friday!). The ball died in the long grass. By the time the third baseman got to the ball and made the throw to first, Jack was safe. He stole second and third. Sliding under the tag from the pitcher, Jack came home to score on a passed ball.

In the field, Jack played one inning each at first, shortstop, third and center. He made a nice tag on a throw from the catcher to get a runner trying to steal second.

The Yankees won by a score of 7 to 2. Their record for the season is 11 wins and 0 losses.
