I forgot to mention that the Rays are Harmony's team and at this point they were undefeated. Bethany was determined to hit a pitch off of Harmony and she did, too bad it was a foul ball. It was the first time she hit off of a kid pitcher.
It was cold, windy and dark this game so unfortunately this is the only good shot of my boy I got while sitting in the score keeper box. It was also a very fast paced game and I can't take a lot of photos and keep track of the umpire at the same time.
Elisha did okay, playing the outfield the whole game, but being right where he needed to be when he needed to be there. Our coach caught a kid leaving the base before the ball crossed the plate (a big no no) which resulted in an out. The funny thing was it was only the second out and he thought it was the third and called our boys in. The other coach called his boys in too (with a boy on first and third) which left me totally confused. How did I miss the third out? I called the ump over and he said he only had three outs too but the coach pulled his boys off of the field too late now. Just before starting the inning the Cards coach caught it and asked me what was up. Thankfully the umpire (gotta love 'em sometimes) asked him why he didn't know how many outs his team had. I really thought I'd hear about it later since his daughter plays on the same team as Bethany.
Final Score: A's 5, Cardinals 8

The A's vs. The Yankees
Last day score keeping for Elisha's team so this is the pic I got this time (It gets better once I'm outta the scorekeeper box so bare with me). *Sigh* Not much to say about this game. Several of our good batters didn't even touch the ball or get on base today, Elisha included.
The Cubs vs. The Tigers
I know I already posted this pic on my 365 a few weeks back but I love the action in it. I really don't think it needs much explainin'.
