So, the softball game didn’t go so well overall, although it was good in other ways. Let me explain: We lost 25-9. But we didn’t lose 25-0. There were several good plays that we had, and some of the people on our team (myself included) looked like they just need a little practice and they could be solid players.
I was up to bat three times. First time I hit an infield grounder and was thrown out at first. Second time I hit a single, the next guy hit a double (so I was then on third). Sprinting from first to third is the most sprinting that I have done since high school, I think. I got 3/4 of the way to third and my feet quit working, so I went down, but I think I managed to make it look like I was sliding into third, since I was able to grab the base and was safe. The next batter hit a flyball to the outfield, and I ran home after it was caught. So I scored. Yeah!
My third at bat I got thrown out at first again. An inauspicious beginning, but with promise shown by several on our team.
