A Night of USA Softball in Portland

It has been a busy week with Little League tournaments starting and my son finishing up his regular season of baseball (and vying for the league championship on Tuesday night!) and blogging for "(just another) Little League Mom" and for "SunCreek Little League." But Tuesday night my dad and I joined hundreds of other dads and daughters, and moms, too, at soldout Erv Lind Stadium in NE Portland to cheer on and admire the USA Softball team on its Bound for Beijing pre-Olympic tour.

I was able to take some photos from our seats at the game, but they didn't come out great. Hope you enjoy them. Oh, Team USA beat the Portland All-Stars, 19-0.
