We won! USA here we come! It was a great game! Over 3,000 people attended! Good times here in Japan! It was a close one, it was so fun being out there on that mound today! Lappin called such a great game behind the plate. She kept the hitters off balance. We opened the game up with getting 2 runs in the first inning and was able to hold the lead. Great to get those butterflies and compete! I LOVE IT! Defense did a great job keeping it to a shut out!
My little friend, the adorable little boy I blogged about yesterday came back today! Oh, he is too cute! He made my day! I was so happy to see him again! Everyone here as been such generous hosts, a true pleasure. I was able to get a picture with him and his family. I will look forward to hopefully getting the picture to show you just how cute he is! They even brought a gift for Ace, so cute! I gave him my batting gloves and he waved them to us as we pulled away. So cute.
It was sad leaving the field in a way. This was our last event for USA for the summer. I know for me its year to year and just thinking that this could of possibly been my last time wearing the jersey makes me... well, its hard to imagine. Tears to say the least. But not dwelling or trying to think about that its just in the back of my mind. I'm just enjoying the moment, loving it, appreciating it. So grateful and blessed!
Speaking of Ace. Oh man I miss my lil' guy! I can't wait to get back to see him and my big guy! Hoping our travel back goes quick! Really quick!
Now... we are going for a Mc Donald's run, our victory dinner! ;) Going for the cheeseburger baby, with fries! Oh and a Diet Coke! :)
