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

day 1427 – on the diamond

back on the diamond after skipping the last two games for meetings. the hardest adjustment is getting my timing and reading the pitch. my first two at bats were terrible, but i finally calibrated to finished the game with two base hits. there were couple weird series of events that ended up in a double play, but the ump was on top of it.  we got blown out but had a good rally in the sixth and final inning

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 and 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
