This morning, Dallas' baseball team started their tourney. They were seeded 4th in the 'B' Bracket. We have learned that the league divides the Pinto teams into 4 brackets (A, B, C, and D). The 'A' Bracket has the top 6 finishing teams of the league. The 'B' Bracket contains the teams that finished 7-12 and so forth. It is a double elimination tournament, so there is a winners bracket and loser's bracket. If you win, you stay in the winners bracket, if you lose, you move to the losers bracket and face another team that has lost. If you win there, you continue in the bracket, with a chance to make it back to play the final winner of the winners bracket. If you lose in the losers bracket, you are eliminated from the tourney. Clear as mud?
So...Dallas' team played the first game of the tourney at 9 a.m. against the 5 seeded Corpus Christi Gold team. We played them in our last game of the regular season and lost. Needless to say, our boys were on a mission, and they were able to get the victory! With the win, we were scheduled to play again at 1 p.m. against the number 1 seed, St. Joe White. We did not play them in the regular season, but our boys played hard, and they defeated St. Joe 8-4! With the second win of the day, we were finished until tomorrow afternoon.
It was such a hot day, so the kids were begging to get in the pool once we got home.
