It's Baseball Time!
t's that wonderful time of year again - baseball time! It's when we get to sit at games in howling wind, driving rain and sometimes even snow! Baseball season in Utah is a cue to Mother Nature to bring on the winter we really never had, during the winter, anyway. Oh well, it is what it is! Cottonwood's first pre-season game was against the Spanish Fork Dons at Cottonwood. Every year that David has played, we have faced Spanish Fork at their home field. So, it was kind of nice to have it at home! David started and played 2nd base. He had some really amazing defensive plays, and so did everyone else. We held our own against the mighty Dons, but in the last couple of innings, they came on strong and scored three runs to pull ahead of us. Score was 4 to 1 and another loss to Spanish Fork goes in the books. It was a fun game, though and Sam Richman from Cottonwood even had a home run! I love these boys - they are the shining example of hard work, discipline, courage and sportsmanship. They are all good friends and take care of each other, too. This is David's last year at Cottonwood and it is bitter sweet. He has had some amazing experiences being part of this team. He has learned so many life lessons that will help him going forward into the next phase. We are extremely proud of him and have loved every minute of being able to share it with him. Here's to David's last year - we hope it's a memorable one for all the best reasons! And..... Go Colts!!
