WLL Major Champs

  1. {Tanner is the 2nd one from the left and Carter is being held up by his teammates}

    Tanner and Carter have had a blast playing on the WLL Padres(Majors)team this season. They were drafted by Coach Nick and were thrilled to be playing for him again. We came in 2nd place during the 1st half of the season and 1st place during the 2nd half of the season, meaning we were then tied with the Giants. We played them again on Saturday to determine who would be the 1st place team(team A) for the TOC tournament. We won, 4-2.

    I love this(above) picture. Carter is the player being held up/carried by his teammates. It was the bottom of the 6th inning(they only play 6 innings) and the score was 4-2. The Giants were up at bat with only 1 out and the bases loaded. Their biggest hitter comes up to bat and hits a hard, fast ball right towards Carter. Carter literally caught the ball 2 inches before it would have hit the ground. He was full on, laid out on the ground to catch this one. He caught it, creating the 2nd out. He stood up fast and tags the runner out at 2nd base. Double play, baby, making that 3 outs! Game over. Padres win! It was Awesome. Congrats to the entire WLL Padres team. Way to be awesome!

    p.s. Carter is over at the ball fields trying out for the All Star team as I type this. He made it pass the first cuts(last night). He has one more round of tryouts tonight, with the All Star team members being posted (tonight) at 9 pm. I have butterflies for him. Wishing him good luck!
