Yes sir! Summer church league softball is back! And what would be my blog without the game recap. A slight change this year, though. Beth and I are not playing co-ed. Beth retired as the walk leader in co-ed softball, and I was promoted to the men’s team (not because I am good, but because I’m tall).
Our first game was last night where we worked for an 8-6 victory. It was a very hard fought game. Quite the pitchers’ dual. The thing that was different than last year is that we only had 1 error! Just 1! That combined with some good fielding by our pitcher Keith proved to be too much for the team we played. I don’t have a schedule so I can’t tell you who it was. We are going to have to work on our batting; too many line drive outs and we went 2 innings without scoring a run.
Yours truly went 3-3. That’s right, you read it correctly, 3-3. The first one was a drop, but I am still counting it as a hit. The second one should have been a triple but I missed second base and had to go back. Doh! Embarrassing. The third should have been a double but I was just too tired to run any further. Old. Game ball goes to Todd Flannery for hitting a 2 run homer in our last at-bat which turned out to be the 2 winning runs. Props goes to the rest of the team for putting that first W on the board.
