Smurf’s Played Regardless of the Weather!

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

Yesterday Beckett’s team, the Smurfs played despite a storm that was descending on Austin. The temperature fell to 60 degrees, the wind picked up; and at first started drizzling. With 30 minutes left in the game it started raining, the field became muddy, and the balls were slick so they called the game!

Beckett took first base because she accidently was hit by a ball from the pitcher! It happens, the wind was up.

Hudson and I huddled under a blanket and thank goodness he brought it!

The good news is they all played well and hung in there until the game was called! It’s all just part of sports, you learn to persevere!

It happens and when it rains get off the field. It would have been a perfect time to go get something warm to drink.

I know that #4 is your favorite smurf and it's good to see Hudson staying warm with you in the stands, rather than his normal seat in the tree, haha.

Hi Dorie- we were preparing for out of town guests so I can't even remember what the weather was like on Saturday. But kudos to Hudson for saving the day by bringing a blanket.
