1: Chase originally tried out for the Reds in 2009, when he was just 6 years old. He didn't make it that year but was determined to make it the next year. In 2010, Chase just turned 7 years old and determined he was. Chase had to go through 3 different try-outs before making the team. He was so unbelievably excited when he made it. Chase is the 2nd to youngest on his team, but his knowledge and skill is right there with the rest. The 8U Reds won their first tournament on April 23, 2011 - it was Chase's first trophy! All the boys did an amazing job - its so cute to see these 7 and 8 year old boys play ball! Chase had a fun time with these boys. Below: Chase the first night he got his uniform - so excited! | Coaches: Stallman, Remington, and Streff

28: Final practice of the 2011 season - the boys hit water balloons for batting practice. It was HOT outside so this was a fun end to the season for them.
29: Batter Up!
52: Chase pitched for the first time this season on the 8U Reds. (Jr Warrior Tournament) He pitched 2 innings. He continued to pitch a couple innings in almost every tournament. Chase was the #2 or #3 pitcher on the team - he can throw strikes!

55: First travel tournament to Des Moines. It was very cold and windy on Saturday, lots of rain the night before so we were lucky the tournament was still on. We lost both of our Saturday games and won 2 out of 3 on our Sunday games. We placed 6th out of 9 teams. Again Chase did great pitching, 2 pitchers had walked in 13 runs in the first inning with only 1 out, Chase came in and threw strikes to get them out of the inning. He also hit a in the park home run due to fielder errors (they over threw at every base).
57: Chase played every position this season but catcher. His favorites are pitcher, 2nd base, center field and short stop.
