Jacob's Field

Unfortunately Jake's team was eliminated from the play-offs on Saturday. So another season is coming to the end. He will be playing ball this summer - but I hate to see this season end. I love watching him play.
Getting ready to steal second.

This picture is so Jake. He is so competitive - but always seems so relaxed and at ease when he plays. His high school coach said about him once - "He can go 0 for 4, - or 4 for 4 - and his expression is the same. He has a lot of self control on the ball field.
Playing 3rd base
This one was taken while they were warming up. This is my favorite picture - because he really seems to be enjoying himself and I love how you see the ball coming to him.
