It Ain't Braggin' If You Done It

I am posting this for my father. He was disappointed that I didn't write anything about Bennett's baseball game Wednesday night. Bennett played really great. He made an amazing catch at first base and knew to immediately tag the base because the base runner took off for second, thinking the ball wouldn't be caught. (Apparently, he wasn't familiar with Bennett Smallie. He is now). At tonight's game (he has three this week), he caught two pop flies, threw a few batters out, and went 3 for 4 at the plate. That's right, he made an out. The pitcher caught one of his hits. This is only the second out Bennett has ever made. EVER. In four years of baseball, two outs. As they say in Texas, "it ain't braggin' if you done it" and Bennett "done it". He has a really great team and they're a lot of fun to watch.

Luke, Hunter, Bennett, and Aaron

Cate loves stealing the boys hats off the bench when they're batting. She always wears at least two!

Throwing the batter out at 1st

He loves playing catcher. Makes me very nervous because I'm afraid he'll get hit by a bat.

Brady gets dirtier than anyone on the team. He loves running the bases after the game.
