Sebastian had his first baseball game last night.  His team name is the Tigers.  They picked up uniforms (shirts & baseball hats) right before the game started.  He was a bit nervous moving up to the “minors” this year, but he did really well.  He had a great play at second base and got a player out on the other team.

We had a special treat last night in being able to watch two games at the same time.  Sebastian’s cousin Nick was playing on the field right behind us.  Nick is in the “majors” and my brother John is coaching his team again this year.  We were able to see a couple of Nick’s hits and some of his pitching and fielding.  It was a great night of baseball.

On a side note, while most of the state was enjoying temperatures in the 70’s, 80’s and even the 90’s, Duluth had a high temperature of 45 degrees yesterday.  The wind was gusting and it was downright frigid, compliments of Lake Superior and a cold front over NE Minnesota.  Mike recommended wearing my winter coat and I’m so glad I did.  I felt a bit silly when I left the house in a down coat that I usually wear to Sebastian’s outdoor hockey games, but after sitting outside on a metal bench for an hour and a half, I didn’t care too much about my spring fashion faux pas.
