Announcer Love

July 19, 2016

I got to be an announcer for a District 9-10 tournament tonight. A tournament made up of the winning teams from multiple Northern California Districts. No need for further details… the point is I got to announce the game,¬†instead of my usual scorekeep.

Of course I love scorekeeping. But, wow, announcing is a tiny bit thrilling. Especially fun to team up with a crackerjack scorekeeper like Dianna.

I don’t have a photo of us in the booth, so am going with one of Peter when he was that age. This was one of our very first Crush games. Crush was a travel team that came together after Peter made his first District all-star team, and was made up of the best players from Davis Little League’s American and National District teams. T’was the start of an elevated level of play that lead eventually to the High School teams. Making that first District team was a pretty fortunate turn of events. Opened quite a door!

Anyway… here’s Peter in a pickle, and from the looks of it, he probably did not fare well.
