day 1675 – mummified thumb 

the thumb sprain wasn’t going to stop me two straight days. it’s still troubling, but showing up to dodgeball with a mummified thumb is what i had to do. playing in tier 2 has its difficulties, understanding the rules and playing with honesty are two big ones. even for a team who won back to back sportmans award, playing against cheaters boiled our tempers and unraveled when certain players are blatantly cheating. it was not a fun night when we had to point out individuals who are repeated offenders

day 1481 – pitch and play

after a full day of round robin, back on the diamond pumped for softball playoffs. no one expected us to last long in the playoffs, but we made a case for ourselves making it deep into the playoffs. playing five games in nine hours one break in between was tiring, but i played some of my best games as the day wore on and so did my teammates. we played our way up to semi finals and potentially could have been finalists. props to everyone who came out to play. win or lose, i’m proud of the team for finishing the season strong after such a fun season. that tan just got a whole lot darker after being on the field all day

day 1456 – dugout view

playing softball with this back drop is quite the pleasure. i’m still thinking about the ump’s strike zone that made me strikeout. how can a pitch be called strike when i have to step back to avoid getting hit by the pitch?? playing first base is always fun and it always makes it better after making a few good plays. our opponent may be a tier above, but it turns out they’re a bunch of douchebags with poor sportsmanship
