Proud Moment....

Last week, Delaney's Middle School Team played in a game and she didn't get into the field the whole day. It depresses her when she doesn't get to play but she always takes it in stride.

In the last inning, our team had gone from a 6-0 lead to a 7-7 tie and everyone was sitting on the edge of their seats... We got a girl on and they called on Delaney to bunt her around. Laying down the perfect bunt she was not only safe at first but advanced to second on a bad throw. The next batter is hit so the bases are now loaded.

On a hit the girl on third is out on a force at home. So Delaney is now at third.

Then on a wild pitch, Delaney steals home and slides in under the throw to win the game 8-7!

It was exciting and it taught her that everyone has a job and when they put you in to make the most of it!

I love it!!!!!!!!!
Delaney always has such a great attitude (well, most of the time! LOL) and tries to just take advantage of the opportunity when she does get to play. I was so proud of her!
