He didn't do well.
He was up to bat two times and he struck out both times. After the last time he sat in the dug out crying. I tried to get his attention so I could talk to him but he was too upset. One of his team mates asked if he was all right and I told him he was upset. That boy was on DS10 like a shot! He was telling him that it's all right, everyone strikes out. He said "We've all stuck out. Even the pros strike out." The boy tried to take DS10's helmet off so he could look at him in the eyes while he was talking to him. I almost cried watching that. It was so sweet. After that game I pulled his mother aside to tell her what her son did and she was touched.
DS10 was on an amazing, supportive team.
After the game the team had to vote for six players to play in a (for lack of a better word) exhibition game. The coaches announced the players who were picked at the ice cream stand. When he got to the last slot it was a four way tie. The coach said "The other coaches and I got together and picked this last player. This player was at every practice on time, if not early. He was at every game, but most importantly he showed heart." When the coach was saying that the rest of the team got behind DS10 and was pointing over his head. Then the coach looked right at DS10 and pointed and "It's you." Everyone cheered. Again, I almost cried.
So, even though we came in second, DS10 had a fantastic experience and made some great friends. He looking forward to Fall Ball in September.
