Sunday March 9, 2014-Montgomery KOA

Saturday we went over to the huge baseball complex in Katy for a couple of Cameron baseball games. I don't understand why they can't figure out a way to schedule the games better. Cam's team didn't start playing until 5 PM but then played their second game at 7. Why can't they give them more time between games, at least an hour. That way the boys could rest and get a bite to eat and their grandparents could visit with friends that live in the area...

Cam did very well at bat, with a single (stranded on base), a double (later scored) and a long fly out that scored a run. 

He played well at first base and got several players out when they hit a single. He is a good player and I'm told that he likes playing first base best. He also plays third base as well as a relief pitcher.

Here he is pitching. in his last tournament, he came within one batter of pitching a no hitter. In the first inning that he pitched tonight, he retired the side on 7 pitches!

They won the first game 6-0 but lost the second 2-1 in a heart-breaker. They had gone into the final inning with the score tied and the other team got a good hit and scored the winning run. Bummer!

It started to rain lightly near the end of the game and by the time we left it was raining hard. It rained all night and tomorrow's games were cancelled so we didn't get to see him play any more.

We took some back roads when we came home, following the Garmin GPS. It was kind of spooky driving down unfamiliar roads in the rainy dark weather but we made it okay.

We didn't do too much on Sunday. We did remember to reset our clocks to daylight savings time. Our friends and south Texas chapter leaders, Tom and Marti called, so we made a date to meet them this afternoon at the El Palenque Mexican restaurant. This is our first Mexican food meal since we've been down here and it was Good! Not only that, but we got to catch up with Tom and Marti and the events in their life. They are building their retirement home and have a countdown going until retirement. I am excited for them and know exactly what they are going through right now. We hope to get together with them next year when they begin their retirement adventures. We will see them again in October at the regional rally in Amana Iowa. 

Fun times!

So long.
