15 Minutes of Fame

We had our first game tonight of the 2006 All-Star Tournament -- and we walked away with our first WIN!!!!!

God blessed Alec abundantly tonight. Not only did he get the call to pitch the first game, but he pitched a complete game and got the win. He also went 1 for 2 with a double, and had 5 put outs of his own. Overall, he had a hand in 15 of the 18 outs for the game (10 K's and 5 Assists).

His pitching Stats... 6 innings pitched (96/32/51), 26 batters faced, 10 Strike Outs, 1 Walk, 6 Hits, 1 Run, 1 Earned Run.

Alec.. the Lord had his hand on you tonight! What a fantastic way to start the tournament!

Ohhhhhhh! More update after the fact. We found out this morning that our All Star game was highlighted in our local paper, and Alec received mention. This is the article...

A.V. American edges Hesperia American
FROM STAFF REPORTS, VICTORVILLE — Alec Brewton tossed a complete game to help Apple Valley American (A) beat Hesperia American (One) 2-1 Thursday night at Hook Park in a 9- and 10-year old baseball All-Star game. Cody Mudford drove in the go-ahead run for Apple Valley in the fourth inning with a single. Hesperia’s Cesar Godinez threw a complete game and struck out 10 batters in a losing effort.

Boy, I wonder what it feels like to have your 15 minutes of fame at 9 years old??????
