Baseball season ended last month for Douglas. I am humbled by the amount of work he put in.
He was the Shortstop and Team Captain on four different teams: the Atascadero Reds, the Atascadero Little League Travel Team, the Atascadero Little League All-Stars and the Atascadero Rivercats.
He attended 72 practices and scrimmages.
He played in 59 games.
Along the way he made a lot of new friends. All great players and kids.
Doug’s sports success is not indicative of what kind of parent I am. Having an athlete who is coachable, a great teammate, mentally tough, puts the work in, tries their best and brings joy to the game is what matters.
We’re both looking forward to Opening Day next Spring.
