Deer Mom & Dad,


The last time I wrote home I was playing some more, but I think that was just a one time thing. I played those two games in California and it was really fun. Actually, it got pretty crazy. We have these guys that keep track of all our stats and I got a print out to to read in my room. I actually played 4 straight games at one point. When we played in the NL our manager wanted to do pinch hitting more so I got to bee part of the games. But then it stopped again.

On Saturday I really thought I was going to play a hole game tho! But then in the 8th Jeff hit for me. But that is ok because he is a really nice guy and he has been here for many times. I just wish the coaches knew how much I was trying. It's so fun at the end of the game if you win whi and you are there on the field. We all line up and high 5 and it is so cool. It's like WOW we OUR a team! But its fun in the dugout to.


My friend Jereed came back a few days ago. We talk sometimes on the bench during games. Man you guys should see how fast he is. We have all these stories about what he can do win he runs! Yesterday on the bus I was telling someone that I was the fastest on the team but not now! But then coach said Melky was faster and laughed. I don't know. Maybe he is.

I think we have a break coming up soon. Do you think I could come home for a few days? I know you don't want to pay for me to come back so I won't ask again.
