2 Home Runs and 35 months TSW

It’s hard to believe that it’s already September! Summer goes by fast when you spend it traveling from one baseball tournament to another, a family reunion, and two weddings–in 4 different states. Thankfully, we’ve been able to do it all, and Brian has weathered the heat and humidity of summer like a champ.

Brian’s team, the Virginia Breeze Elite, brought home the Cal Ripkin championship trophy and came in the top 8 of 104 teams at the week-long Cooperstown tournament in NY. The stay in the barracks and uniforms washed by the staff challenged his skin, but he at least came out no worse than he went in: 0/5 to 2+/5 ss (scratch scale) and minimal shedding.

Also, he hit his first and 2nd home runs ever that week, contributing 2 to the team’s 44. He batted .611 in 6 pool play games–a fitting end to his “little field” career and a testament to how far he’s come in his TSW journey. Thank you, Jesus!

“But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead…you should stand firm in the LORD, dear friends!” Philippians 3:13, 4:1
