They just finished up their season, so I'll include some of the highlight pictures. They came in 3rd place (out of 4 teams), but their team seemed to have the most fun, which was a nice consolation. This was his first foray into the arena and he made some great strides during the season and once he was even named MVP for the game (mainly due to his rejoicing with utter abandonment when he caught a pop fly).
Another highlight - they have real uniforms. (They're returned at end of season, but it was still really cool!) And to Worthy's complete delight he was #1.
He usually played outfield, but they often would switch things up. He was really excited to play catcher once.

One of the highlights was actually going to the games. We only took the whole crew a couple of times, because it really is a rather overwhelming commute (on public). And a few times we even had some teachers, friends and family come out to cheer Worthy on.

One more thing I wanted to point out. This baseball field is somehow connected or supported by either the American military or the UN or something that has access to prized American goodies. So lets just say Dan & I fought over who would be the escorting parent because they had Root Beer and Cheetos available for purchase among other unavailable and unhealthy good ol' American treats.

And I will also mention that at the concession stand they sold beer.
Although it's American baseball, we are still in Austria!
Our team parents would really make a celebration of being there - especially the tournament game.
All in all it was a Good Game and a great season!
And just a funny little clip of our #1 in "action":
