Assistant Coaches Baseball Card - Team Astros 2012

Here's the Whalley Astros!

This photo was taken after Ethan's last Baseball game of the regular season.  The kids had so much fun as a team.  With a short season of baseball, only a month and a half, the kids really seemed to bond. ; )

I created this card twice, one for each of the assistant coaches. With most sports cards I usually pull out my retired products which this card uses a lot of retired products.  I love that i can customize any card to suit any theme or occasion and for this card i was able to match the team colours. I'm not much of a baseball fan so i don't know what all the team colours are but Coach Jarrod is a HUGE baseball fan and went out and bought himself an Astro's Jersey to wear at each game.  We'll talk more about coach Jarrod when i post the card i made for him.  So as you can see from the Jersey below I picked up on the orange and black to create this card.


Hope you like  : )
