Very cool man, glad to see your having fun.
Not being too far removed from my rec baseball years the best advice I can give you is to have fun and enjoy what you're doing. I was always pressured to play traveling ball but I played in rec ball all the way through until I was 15 (last year of rec ball where I'm from). While maybe the competition wasn't as great I always took pride in being one of only 3 guys on the varsity team my senior year that came out of the rec system in town.
Sounds like you guys had a great year. While you may think every game is do or die, it's not. Make sure to enjoy your friends and enjoy the game and always try to play it right.
Wow, that just sounded like something my dad would say...
