day 1451 – sandlot sub

a light drizzly day isn’t going to stop a softball game so here i am playing another game with the sandlots. it was a close game each inning, but taking a win from a tier b team is pretty cool. rotated between second base and back catching. it’s fun behind the plate when there’s good pitching; the ump also kept things interesting. i consider getting on base twice quite am accomplishment playing against above our tier

day 1077 – batter up

being active is just the way i like it, even when my limbs are sore. on the diamond playing softball and back catching once again. feeling more comfortable andĀ better both on the field and at the plate. i managed two hits and a strikeout which equates to a 0.667 batting average; not bad for a rookie. after the game, i was even asked to join their team as a regular. a bunch of us keeners stayed after to do some extra batting and fielding practice. during batting practice, i was making solid contact and taking good cuts with each swing

i am not used to the inactive and idle nights now that i have an extended break before the next season. i took the field tonight for my first ever organized softball game. i have never played softball before but i caught on quickly and made several nice plays. it was a fun night; i enjoyed the casual night of throwing balls and the team spirit that comes with . it’s a sign i miss being on a team and maybe should have joined a league for the summer
