And even though she wasn't out there on the field, after two days of being outside in the heat, Jadyn was EXHAUSTED:
I am so glad that Jake was able to play All-Stars this year. Seeing the skill level of his teammates has really motivated him and he is enjoying himself. He had some rough at bats but also had some good base hits too. When you are practicing 4 nights a week and spending 8 hour days with the players and their families, you become close really quick and I love that sense of camaraderie.
The team will go into tournament play on Saturday afternoon after a first round bye. We are now in double elimination tournament play and the HEAT IS ON. Go Yucca Red!
