First All-Star Game

In between rainstorms, we managed to play our first All-Star game. We won 7-5! It was a very exciting game! We were winning 5-0, then they came back to tie 5-5, then we came back and scored 2 more to win it.

Austin played in right field in the 1st, 3rd, and 5th innings.

He chose the #24 because it's Jeff Gordon's number... that's Austin's favorite Nascar driver.
Austin was up to bat twice. The first time he grounded out, allowing a run to score. That's called a 'sacrifice' in baseball lingo! His 2nd at-bat he hit a monster of a hit, that was unfortunately caught. He was SO disappointed! The crowd was, too! In the video we're all screaming and then go "Ohhhhhh" when the ball was caught! :)

It was an exciting and well-played game! Hopefully the next game won't be so wet! :)
