Look Up//Look Down #19: Play-off Time

My son's baseball team has qualified for the Central Coast Sectional Playoffs, and their first game is today, Wednesday, May 15. He's playing with a group of boys with whom he has played for over ten years -  Little League, All-Stars, travel ball; a couple trips to Cooperstown, New York. I don't think any of them will play in college, so this is really the last hurrah. It's a single elimination tournament, and I hope they win more than a few games. Good luck thoughts and wishes gratefully accepted!
For this week's look up//look down, I thought I'd feature a pair of photographs from their last regular season game. Looking up at the backstop; looking down at their bats.
Look Up//Look Down is a meme started by Helena of Helena's Creative Maven.

Good luck to the boys! Love that picture of the bats. The end of an era always has mixed emotions but it sounds like these boys have had a great time together over the years. Happy memories!

I really love that first one...I've noticed that it's often the 'look up' photos in this meme that really catch my eye....I must be a 'looking up' kind of person!!
Good luck to the boys.

Best of luck! I think over here we would describe those shots as having a wonderful "all-American" feel to them

Nice pics. I like the first one a lot. My Mann has been playing some baseball for fun this season and I've been toting my camera. I'll have to post some of my baseball pics pretty soon.
