Cami - This week, Cami had two games. She had several hits off the tee, scoring a few runs in the process. She also fielded several ground balls. She even played an inning as pitcher's helper, but her cat-like reflexes were not in evidence, as she often was mesmerized by short hits and forgot to move at all. Maybe she was visualizing what she should do.
Lexi - Lexi had one game and took a few good swings, but didn't connect. She is really working on her timing right now. The fielding is coming along, and she loves chanting, "Hey batter, look at me, I'm a monkey in a tree..ooo-aahh, oooo-aahh.
Griffin - Griffin had one make-up game rained out (now we have to make up a make-up?) and one game played. He really started coming on in the second half of today's game. He had one field-length dash and scoring chance that looked like it just might roll in, but an opponent stopped it inside the "no-touch" zone. He had a chance at a free kick but left it a little short. He also had a few more really aggressive and coordinated rushes with the ball. You can almost see him developing his skills from week to week.
Finally, the Knights attended what is becoming a family tradition on the 1st Saturday in May: Free Comic Book Day! We visited the local comic shop and were allowed to choose two comics each from a select group as comic shops across the country celebrated this fabulous day. If only it had been around when I was a teen. Sigh.
