Dear Dad an Mom,

I can't believe I am already back here at the baseball camp. It was real fun last year and I know this year I will get so much better at baseball. My goal is to play in a game EVERY day and I think that sense I was here before I will now get to be able to.

On the first day it was weird because I was tired but also wanted to see the team and become friends with everyone. Jeff, this really cool guy from last year was back, and he was in the middle talking to everyone and giving people nicknames. I talked to him for a little bit but he didn't remember that I was here before. But I think he was joking because I think I replaced him in a game once, so he must have remembered. I have tried to talk to the manager a time but he was with Jason who I think is a player still and they were playing cards so I didn't say anything. I think I am going to get to play specially if Alex goes somewhere else, but I don't know.

I wrote about it last year but there is this guy named Moose here who is popular. I think that is such a funny name.

Everything was going good for the Royals (that is going to be our name this season, there was a big meeting the rest of the team had and that was what they choose, they had some real crazy ideas, if i was there I would have said the team name should be Danger Dragons but that was just me) but then this guy named Salveder got hurt. But I think it is ok. He was always around and people new he was there.

I am so glad that I realized how much I LOVE country music now. I was singing this song one day when we had to run. And no one was with me but then Billy started singing it too. And we talked about it afterwards. He is showing me some of his songs on itunes I think one day on the bus.

Arizona is a fun place. There are pools everywhere & I could swim all day sometimes.
