2011 USTSA World Series Day 3

After a couple of late nights, Jack and I slept late and had a lazy morning. After a late breakfast, I ran 6 miles on the treadmill. Jack and I wandered the mall near hotel looking at lens for the camera, had a bite to eat and then headed to the game.

The Outlaws played the White Rock All Stars in an afternoon game. This is a little league all star team from Canada. I believe that they were from somewhere near Vancouver.

At the plate, Jack was 1 for 2 with a ground rule double, a run scored and hit by a pitch. In his first at bat with two outs and Jeremy on first, Jack drove a 3 and 2 pitch into right center for a ground rule double. He scored from first on Josh's infield error to the second baseman. Jack was hit by the second pitch in his second plate appearance. He was thrown out trying to steal second. In his third at bat, Jack hit the first pitch for a soft line drive. I thought that it was going to drop into right center, but the second baseman caught up to it and made a nice catch.

In the field, Jack played six innings at third base. He had one assist on a slow roller to the left side. Jack fielded it cleanly and threw the runner out at first.

The Outlaws beat the White Rock All Stars by the score of 9 to 2. The box score is here.

With a record of 2 wins and 1 losses, I calculated that the Outlaws were seeded 6th out of the 18 teams in their division.

Sharon rolled up in a taxi about 30 minutes after we got back to the hotel. She was working in Paso Robles on Monday and Tuesday and flew down to join us for the last couple days of the tournament.

We finished the night with a team dinner at Fuddruckers near the hotel.
