Double A Baseball

Trevor's baseball season was a good one this year.  He had great coaches...Matt Parker, Ryan Jones, Scott Galovan and Josh Hunter.  A powerhouse of Mormon Men!  He played double A on the UCIrvine Anteaters.  Here he is with Coach Matt during our second playoff game (which we won):

This was Trevor's first year of kid pitch baseball.  Before the season started Trevor was convinced he wanted to be a pitcher like his Dad!  He would walk around the house throwing "mock" pitches all the time.  So he started out the season pitching...while he enjoyed was completely stressed out every time he was on the mound!  He did a great job as pitcher, but as the season progressed it was discovered while playing left field that Trevor had a powerhouse arm.  It was meant to throw distance!

He was able to catch a ball in left field and with one hop throw it all the way to home plate for an out!  Super exciting play!

Then he filled in for the catcher and did a phenomenal job!  Plus he loved the position because it gave him lots of contact with the ball.  So while we played pitcher, third base, short stop and first base.  The positions that best fit him and he played most often starting halfway through the season were catcher and left field.

Way to go Trevor!  Can't wait for Mark Creese Baseball camp so you can improve your skills!
