Team Tennessee

Hunter got selected to play on Team TN. We were very excited for Hunter to get this opportunity.

We had to meet the bus at the University of Memphis. There they gave them their uniforms & played a scrimmage game against the Memphis Tigers 18U team. Then they got on the bus and drive to Central Arkansas. They spent the night & had a practice at Central Arkansas. After the practice they drive to McAlester, OK. They met & went with their host family.

 This was before they left Memphis.

We had t-shirts & a door hanger made for his host family.

We drove over on Friday and got to watch both games Friday & Saturday. We headed home on Sunday.

Hunter, Tate & Drew went from the State Tournament(opposite teams) to Cumberland with Dulins, to Oklahoma with Team Tennessee and will fly from Oklahoma to Tampa where they will play in the Under Armour games with Dulins. WOW...20 something straight days of baseball.

Hunter's host dad, Rodney, took us to an amazing Italian restaurant. 

Haley, Barkley & Lily cheering for Team TN.

The host families had a party. We were honored to get to be a part of this amazing event. They treat these boys great. It was so fun to be a part of this group.

Me and Julie stepped in as Drew's other moms for Traceyann since she wasn't able to make it. Steve came over on Sunday and stayed until he put the boys on the plane Thursday morning.

Rodney bought the boys OU shirts. I think he spoiled them a little. :)

On the way to Tampa we were able to listen to the championship game on the radio. It helped pass the time.

Hunter & his awesome host family. Rodney, Katie, Stevie & Spencer. They couldn't have picked a better match for Hunter. He loved his time with the Stinchcombs. We are so greatful for everything they did to make this such an awesome experience for Hunter.

 Team Tennessee won the Championship!!!
