We finally won one!
It was 0-0 all night long. The Jayhawks had one more chance to bat, but already had two outs and the game was going to be called for time any minute. Looked like it was going to be a draw, which is better than another loss.
But, Soren got on base. Another kid made the next base hit, moving Soren to second.
The NEXT kid, hit a moon shot into the outfield. I'm pretty sure it was his first hit of the season.
Needless to say, the Jayhawk crowd went wild.
Soren ran to third. The opposing team's third baseman caught the ball and started chasing him home.
Soren arched his back, belly button out, neck muscles taunt. The kid chased, Soren ran, the crowd held it's breath!
Of course, we all went crazy. Had I been sitting in the stands I wouldn't have seen how his teammates attacked him in the dugout. He had a baseball hero moment! It was a glorious moment for my kid and I wouldn't have missed it for anything in the world!
