Saturday we spent our day at Carnes Field celebrating a great bunch of seniors and what they have meant not only to FHU baseball, but to my family - VERY emotional day! Not only was it emotional on this account, if the boys swept (and they had to play 2 1/2 games on Saturday) they would win TranSouth Conference Regular Season Title. They have not done that since 1997. So, we were in for a day!
We missed the half game that had to be finished from Friday night.
(I know, I have already been "chewed out" by Carter for not being there.)
They won 13-3!!!!!
Onto Game 2 . . .
|Carter and Dean in their usual position taking in the day.|
They won game 2 6-1 (we think)!!! YAY!!!
|Our wonderful 14 seniors and their families!|
|Whitney, Me and Hayley - I love my Newby girls!|
|What a blessing these boys have been to my family!|
Onto Game 3 . . . Hunter pitching . . . Becky a nervous wreck!
In between one of the innings, one of our boys came out and told me that Kirkland had something for Carter after the game. I told him we would stay as long as we could but Carter had a game at 6:00.
So, in between the next inning, the boys came and brought Carter to the dugout.
Kirkland came out carrying a bat . . . .
|Look at that face!!!|
that was signed by the WHOLE team - JV and Varsity!!

|Proud owner of the best gift EVER!!!|
Then we had to focus on the game and our boy on the mound . . .
|Watching Hunter at Carnes Field for the last time . . .|
WE WON!!! Whoo Hoo!
What a way to end Senior Day for a fabulous group of boys!
So proud of them!
After celebrating, Carter had to have pictures with some of the boys . . .
|Carter and Jesse -|
Carter describes him as "Our Jason Heyward."
|Got to love us some Blake Taylor!|
Then, we had a photo shoot with Hunter. I was good and did not take too many . . .
|Carter is 44 again this year in honor of this being Hunter's last year . . .|
We love you, all!
