Gulf Shores Recap-5 6 7 8...

What do you get when you take a team of 9U baseball players to the USSSA World Series in Gulf Shores, AL?

Spartans 9U USSSA Champions with their rings!
A team that came to take home some hardware! Everything just came together for these boys and they played their hearts out. They played 8 games total and the Spartans were 6-2. We had to come out of the loser's bracket on Saturday because we had already lost one game on Friday. They had to win four games on that Saturday (they had to beat the same team twice) to win it all and that's just what they did! 

Tuesday started the series with pin trading among the teams playing in the tournament. We had pins made before the tournament started and they put them on a towel that we also had made for them. 

Teams come from all over to play so it's fun for the boys to go around and collect these!

Jack played catcher, 2nd base and pitcher in this tournament.

We had a lot of rain that week but it didn't stop us from making some great memories with a great group of families both on the field and off the field! It turned out to be a great vacation and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Here are a few more pics of the week...

This wasn't the only shark we saw that week. Yes, he pulled him out right where the kids had been skim boarding!
