His team party to celebrate a great season was Saturday at a hamburger joint called The Shack. It's name was very fitting. It was indeed a shack, but it was really a neat place. Real rugged with antiques everywhere, kind of like a junk yard with an area for the kids to play and huge hamburgers and trays of every type of flavored french fries. Dane had so much fun at the party running and playing with his teammates. After everyone ate the coach did a presentation that was really cute. He described each player and mentioned their strengths and then presented them with their trophy. All the boys were so thrilled to get their trophy, but Dane was SOOOOOOO excited and animated. He kept loudly exclaiming "I'm going to put this trophy next to my soccer trophy" and "Now I have 2 trophies", and my all time favorite "LOOK, this trophy has GOLD on it"!!!! He was so animated it was hilarious, but super duper cute that he was so excited. He would clap and cheer when his teammates got their trophies, he was so proud. The party was a great way to end the season. Go Padres!!

I'm sad that his first season is over. But, I'm thinking there will be more baseball in our future!
And here's his team picture and individual picture. I thought they turned out real cute. These are scanned from the original pictures, so the quality isn't great. (Grandma and Grandpa-yours will be in the mail soon!)
