Daniel Goes to Baseball Camp

This past week Daniel attended Freed-Hardeman's Baseball Camp. Daniel is a good baseball player, and he wants to get better. Coach Patrick McCarthy and some of the Lions' Baseball players worked with the boys from 9-12 each morning Monday-Wednesday. Then on Thursday morning the boys were excited to learn about sliding, because they got to use the Slip'n'Slide. They all had a good time, but Daniel's friend Kyle got cut on the tarp and had to have stitches. The boys received certificates and camp shirts at an awards ceremony at 11:00. Daniel had the highest score on the baseball fundamentals tests for the 10-11 year olds, and he chose FHU baseball shorts as his prize. We were very proud of him!! We were also proud that he helped out with some of the younger boys who came. Carter, one of Daniel's favorite friends, came to camp for the first time this year. Daniel said, "I'm going to look out for Carter and make sure he has a good time." When he thinks about others instead of himself, I feel like we're doing something right as parents. We were also proud of Kyle, who was chosen as "Camper of the Week." Great job, guys!!! Maybe you'll be playing for the FHU Lions someday.
