TOOTBLAN and other tales of infamy on the diamond
So last night I played softball and had played an OK game all around. I had scored from 1st on a double, and as an outfielder speed is really my game. So I got on on a FC the next time up, and sure enough the guy behind me cracks an easy up the gap double. So I'm legging it around knowing there is going to be a play at the plate and I'm waved home. BUT THEN, for some unknown reason, I stopped midway down third and tried to go back, but it was too late. I was caught in a rundown and tagged out. I'm fairly certain I would have scored had I kept going as the throw was high. So today I'm just replaying this damn thing over and over and over wondering what in the world I was thinking.
All this brings me to ask of you as part of my personal healing process: What ridiculously bad moment or play still haunts you?
