Baseball Tournament - Day 1

After a 12 hour drive on Thursday southbound to Port St. Lucie Florida, we rested up and prepared for a double header against two tough American teams.

The first game was a mail biter as we played against a team from Texas. We were scoreless for most of the game until Texas pulled out a run run inning late in the game. We had to make something happen quick and in the top of the ninth, with two men on, I popped a triple into left field scoring both runs to tie the game.

Heading into the 12th inning, we pulled out another run, putting us ahead. We held them in the bottom half of the inning to pull out the first with of the tournament. Woo hoo!

Game two was off to a great start! We were playing on the St. Louis Cardinal's spring training field against a team from Long Island, NY. (field in the photos). Let me just say...beautiful!

We took the lead early scoring 6 runs to their 2. As the game proceeded, we started losing focus and fell behind in later innings, losing the game 8-6.

So after a long day of baseball, The body was craving the hot tub for a nice relaxing soak. It was just as good as it sounded in my head, but the body is definitely achy this morning.

Our next game is at 12:30 against a team from Florida who I've heard is the team to beat and tomorrow we are playing the other great team from Venezuela. Should be exciting.

Wish us luck and hope to bring back some great news.

Best wishes,

Adam Freeman
