It Ain't Over Till It's Over

We finished up Hank's baseball season last week.  I am usually ready for the season to be over but we have had the most amazing spring weather.  I could sit at 100 more games if it stayed this way.
 It also marks the end of Hanks AAA career.  Next year he will have to try out for the minors and likely be separated from his buddies that he has played with for numerous seasons.  Max will likely step down as a coach as it gets a little more serious and intense. 
He is growing up so big.  :( A real chip off the old block.  I hate it but at the same time couldn't be prouder that he is turing out just like Max.
He seems to have a knack for catching like his daddy. :)
 Ben and Hank have been on the same team for 5 years.  I met his mom during one of our first practices when Hank was four.  I had to run the girls to piano and Max was out of town.  I saw Aimee with her sweet little toddler and thought she must be a safe person to trust my son to.  I asked her to watch over Hank while I ran the girls to music.  We have been best buds since and are very close family friends.
 I loved seeing my two favorite boys play ball together.  Max would often pitch when they didn't have a machine.  He nailed Hank once and he could barely shake it off.  But he said he would rather hit his own kid than anyone else. :)  Max was definitely more hurt than Hank.
Hank improved so much this year.  He had a big swing and struck out his fair share in the beginning but he slowly got better and even hit a home run one night!  He was awarded the "Dirtiest Player" at the team party last night.  Not because he is a cheat, but because he slides into every base he can and even practiced sliding in the dugout.  This ruined numerous pairs of pants.  It didn't help that his coach would tease him if he could still see grey at the end of the game.  Hank loves to get on the ground in every sport with baseball being the one with the most Hank to ground ratio by far.  He is all boy!
I love watching him play and am going to miss sitting on the sidelines watching the sweetest pastime.  It is more than just a game and is unlike any other of the sports he plays.  It is a good hearted game filled with all of his best buddies and family friends.
