This weekend my baseball team played in our last tournament of the season. We are called the East Chatham Diamond Dawgs. This tournament was called the Winter World Series. The tournament was directed by USSSA. In our first game we won 9-1 against the GBI Express. Our game ended at 10:30 on Friday night. I played shortstop and batted third. In our next game at 11:00 on Saturday morning we played a team called the Carolina Spartans and won 13-2. I hit a double, home run and single and my team hit 3 home runs. Next we played the Capital City Braves. They are a good team. We lost 12-4 and I walked twice. We got the #5 seed and played the Triad Thunder, who were the #4 seed. I pitched four innings and hit a single, two home runs and got walked once. We won 24-5. Our last game was against the Carolina Havoc who are the best in the state. We lost 9-1 in that game. Even so this has been a very good season for me and our team. We hit 19 home runs, and our record was 19-8. I am looking forward to playing baseball next year.

I am proud of pitching a no hitter because it is a really hard thing to do and it takes a lot of focus. I pitched it in Oxford against a team called the Fire Antz. We won in four innings because we were winning by 12 runs. I was subbing for a team called the Thunder and I also hit a home run that day.
This past weekend my new baseball team had our first game. I missed the practice where we got our uniforms so I had to change in the car. The uniform had a grey, long-sleeved shirt with OC in orange on the left chest area for Orange County. I also got a jersey that had 11, my number, on the back and Crushers, underlined on the front. In addition to that I got two pairs of Nike Elite socks. I also got a few other shirts along with that. We had our first game against the HYAA Allstars. We didn’t stand a chance. We were beat 2-10 but luckily it was just a scrimmage. It gets real this weekend though when we go to a tournament in Burlington. We better be ready… (I’ll post the the turnouts after with 3 or more comments.)

I play a baseball league. It is called South Durham. I play in the highest age group and the best one. The year before I made all stars which is when you go to different tournaments and eventually you may be able to go to Williamsport, PA. Which is on T.V. My goal this year is to not lose a single game and it is also to make all stars again. I play with a guy in our grade names Benson E, and I play against Ian L and Drew H.
