One and one... set up for 9:45 game tomorrow... Tanner had a great day... great hits and outs as catcher and pitcher (infield flies and throws to first)
Got a triple for 2 runs in... that our 3rd base coach got a little excited and touched him before time was called... other team was desperate so they called him on it and he was out... runs still counted.
Tanner made them pay by tagging out their only run home that inning at the plate.
Great day... now I need beer

Annnnnnd we're done...
Boys got banged up early..and started making little errors that snowballed into big errors ...
Tan still had a good game short of a couple missed grounders..
Cranked a worm burner past first basemen and rode the line all the way to the fence .. after he got hit home from second... he comes in, looks at me and says "swung too late".
Love this kid..

Question for you select parents and coaches. What is the proper etiquette for picking up a kid for a tournament? Regarding playing time and entry fee. I'm sure it varies some but curious as to what is normally done.

We had a kid picked up to take the spot of one of our kids that couldn't make it Saturday. Today had both boys and they alternated innings.
The fee portion still came out of our kids dues since it was needed due to him being out.

My kid gets picked up to come throw for a team. He only comes out and throws the last inning or two of close games. Team carries us as they are the ones calling needing he help.

Guest players don't pay. They come in and play where their talent dictates. That may mean a regular player sitting the bench or losing their position. Not saying that's right or wrong but that's the way it usually works.

We play and coach 7U Dynasty from the Lufkin area. Great weekend for our boys as we start this journey. I used to make fun of select baseball and say there is no way I would ever do it, but boy I am eating those words now.

I'm with you.
We enjoy it a lot, and for my boy, who lives and breathes this game, and is an athletic sponge, his abilities and capabilities have grown exponentially playing against the level of competition they play against.

Thanks for the input. That is pretty much what I was thinking.

we had a pretty good weekend, lost game 2 on sunday to the buzzsaw that is the texas bombers, they only gave up 3 runs all weekend, 1 to us and 2 in the championship game.

the little ones (6u) will be at the star in euless this weekend in a 7u tournament, it will be a good test to see how much they have improved since our first tournament of the year, which was 7u as well and they tied 1 game and got smoked the other 2.

Who's playing Longhorn Launchfest this weekend? My son's 11UAAA got bumped to Majors bu USSSA due to 6 kids on our roster playing Majors last year.

We're playing 12UAAA this weekend if it doesn't rain. Haven't played in about a month, so it should be interesting.

Big just in competition when you start playing Majors at least in the Houston area. They will be fine just keep playing hard.

Usssa and the scrapyard park just parted ways.
Rumor is scrapyards wants to run their own tourneys.
I just don't see them staying afloat... even if they are able to pick up some nations overflow.
That park had utrip bb tourneys every weekend...

That's weird, but now they have a professional softball team. Maybe being as big as they are, they can still keep it full
