This Week in Softball

Played a lot of softball in the last 10 days.  

June 17th: Played my usual friday night game.   We played the best team in the league…. and we won!   The big guy hit a game winner in the last inning.

June 18th: Played in a tournament with the Ninjas in Ajax.   The Big guy came with me.   Although the ninjas never win, we actually won a game out there.   It was bitter-sweet because it meant that we had to play again the next day.  

June 19th: Got up early, drove to Oshawa, played, got our asses handed to us and drove home.    Played another game sunday afternoon (our co-ed team’s first loss) and then filled in as an emergency ump at night. 

June 20th: Played a double-header in my weekday league.   Team kicked some butt.   We are now 9-4 on the season.

June 24th: Played against one of the weaker teams but we were missing players.   We won.

June 25th: Another tournament.   I am not sure why I agreed to this one.  I really don’t have the time for it.   We were unbeaten in the round robin format with a big win over a guy we know.   We got to advance straight to the finals where we faced a team we beat earlier.   They killed us.   For coming in 2nd place we still got t-shirts.  

Yesterday:  Faced the best team in the league.   Four players on their team played WITH US in the tournament on saturday.   They got out to a huge lead… then we mounted a comeback that came up short.   The emergency ump had trouble calling strikes.   He called some on me that did not hit the mat.   We also had a crazy rundown where we had 6 of our players throwing the ball around.   We ended up getting two players out on the play.  

It has been a fun 10 days… I am also hitting better now than I did when I started.  

June 26th: Another co-ed game.   After losing the previous sunday, we really wanted to get back on a winning track but we were facing the #1 team in the league.

    Bobette does not play. She tried practicing once and got a softball in the chin.
