As many of you already know, my son plays baseball. This fall he played for the MYAS (Minnesota Youth Athletic Services,) him and his team represented our town. Jason, my husband, coached. He had four 11 year olds, and the rest were 9 and 10. Because he had those 11 year olds, they had to play in the 11-year-old bracket. There were 8 teams in our section, with the other 7 teams being all 11 year olds.
From the first practice to the last game, the boys made an incredible improvement, in skills and in confidence. They started out as 10 individuals, and ended up as a team. There were tears, sweat, love and pride poured into those fields, every Sunday. They struggled, they lost their cool at times, they fought like brothers, and in the end the played like brothers.
This past Sunday were our last two games. For the last 5 weeks, they fought their way to the top. Each week, surpassing another team. Each week, gaining more knowledge and love for the game. It all came down to two games, they had to win to place in the top 3.
THEY DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!
I am proud to announce that Buffalo placed 2nd in the MYAS 11U section 3 bracket!! We couldn’t be more proud of these boys. And I couldn’t be more proud of my husband. Congratulations to the Buffalo Bison on not only a winning season, but a fun and unforgettable time!
One more time….Gooooo BISON!
