Bennett lives for baseball. Like, for real. It's all he does. Even after 7+ hours of baseball yesterday, the first thing he said when we walked in the door at 3pm was, "dad, can we go play catch in the backyard?" And they did. And again when we got home from the pool. And again in the basement til late last night. He just can't get enough. This weekend his ILLINI team hosted their annual tournament. It was a beautiful weekend for baseball!!

Bennett leading his team in pre-game stretches.

This mornings game was awesome. The team we played in dyno-mite and we lost 2-1, but the boys played the best I've ever seen. It was really fun to watch. Bennett played outstanding at 1st base!

Coach Brad giving a post-game pep talk. He was so happy with their effort that he let them get whatever they wanted from the concession stand..Ben chose a hotdog smothered in nacho cheese.

No shocker here. Barely made it out of Bethalto before he was sound asleep. Notice the sweat stains on his hat...this boy plays hard!!
