The first season of Boys and Girls Club ball is in the books. A couple of t-ball HRs, an unassisted double-play, and most important - Cullen always had a smile on his face! This kid loves baseball. Ever since he could walk and swing a bat, he's been crazy about the sport. Cullen was lucky enough to have his dad (along with Ryan Sauter) as a coach. The season started out with what Dirk described as organized chaos. No one knew which base to run to, which direction to throw the ball or whether they were technically playing offense or defense. But as the season progressed, the kids started to throw the ball to first, run the bases in the correct order and many progressed from hitting off the tee to real, live coach pitch. It was so fun to watch Cullen participate in an activity that he truly loves. In fact, the week that temps hit 90 degrees we gave him the option of staying home if he thought it was too hot to play. Of course, Cullen chose to play. It's too bad that next season is 10 months away!
Finally, Cullen's group of die-hard fans also deserve a shout-out: Simone, Mom, Mimi, Bobby, Grandpa Mark, Grandma Liz and Mason. Thanks for the support!
