That's right. The first game for the Federal Park Little League Brewers is in the books. By all accounts, it was a total success even though the scoreboard said it ended in a tie. After a slow offensive start, the Brewers all started hitting the ball and made up the runs they had given up early on.

The effort of the boys was incredible, as well as the amount of improvement each player has made in just a few weeks of practice. For many of the guys, it was their first time hitting with another kid pitching to them. No doubt it can be a little scary, but the boys found a groove and everyone did a great job.

I would be remiss to mention how proud I am of my website co-creators, Austin and T Matsoff. Austin was given the role of starting pitcher in his debut and took the mound with pride and confidence. He had three key strikeouts to go along with a huge triple (which was actually his first hit ever!). His little brother T got called in as his relief pitcher. T was also making his pitching debut and he made the most of the opportunity. When you talk to him he may seem a little quiet, but hand him the ball and his arm can do some serious talking for him! He managed to strike out the side his first inning, and K'd two more in his second. The other team had the winning run on second base and T managed to strike the next batter out to end the game. He also helped the team out with a single and a double in his first game going against a kid-pitcher.

We are hoping that as the games continue we will have some photos of all the Brewers in action. If you have any, please send them to us at

Game 2 on Tuesday night. Go Brewers!

Well, it sure looks like the boys take after and not their uncle.
