The World Baseball Classic (WBC for those in “the know”) has officially begun.
This is my first time seeing this tournament, but I’m already hooked. I’m pulling for Team USA. Mom and I watched the game yesterday against Canada and it was a good one. Dad was stuck at work and tried to catch the score every now and then on MLB.com I filled him in when he got home. LaTroy Hawkins got the win. I’m sure you knew he used to be a Rockie.
I’m also pulling for the underdogs whenever Team USA isn’t playing. The Netherlands pulling ahead of the Dominican Republic was a shocker.
We tuned in for Italy vs. Venezuela last night. Italy looked solid for the first 4 innings, but their bullpen couldn’t hold on. Poor Jason Grilli did not pitch well.
We’re getting ready for USA vs. Venezuela, which starts in a few minutes. I hear Chris Iannetta will be behind home plate tonight. Can’t wait!
Not much else to report. It’s been kind of a lazy day for us. Mom has been sick, so she’s been lounging and taking it easy. Dad ran some errands and took me for a walk down to the park when he got home. I saw geese, ducks, dogs and people out enjoying the nice weather. We had fun. It’s in the 60’s today. Hard to believe we had snow flurries yesterday.
Anyway, game starts in 2 min. Got to get a fresh bottle and clean diaper. Talk to you later!
