Jaylon is 6 and plays in the 5 to 6 year old league. They play 2 innings per game and the entire team bats around in each inning. The league is "coach pitch" so each player gets a maximum of 7 pitches. I'm proud to say that most of his hits have been on the second or third pitch.
They were getting whipped in the first 1 1/2 innings and the opposing team was using most of their 7 pitches. That gave me plenty of time to finish this:
Yarn: Noro Gisha
Needles: 5.5 mm Holz & Stein Ebony circular
Modifications: Used 5.5 mm needles instead of 6.0 or 6.5 to reduce size of eyelets. Made a sleeveless shell instead of short sleeves. This was due to a major yarn shortage. I paid $20.00 for a bag of ten at the LYS a couple of years ago and just couldn't justify spending $11.00 for 1 skein in order to complete the sleeves. The sleeves and neckline are trimmed with crab stitch aka reverse single crochet.
They rallied in the bottom of the 2nd and came back from a 9 - 3 deficit to win by a score of 10 - 9.
After a brief hiatus, I present to you the second round. The daylilies are in bloom.
