Uh, double headers in 95 degree weather is not a good idea.
First of all, we lost both games.
The first one was a pitchers duel and even with the heat, was a lot of fun.
They won 4-3. Our best pitcher v. their best. It was that guy throwing in the 90s with movement. I got beaned on the pinky trying to bunt but I got pretty lucky as it's not broken. I stayed in and grounded out that at bat.
I went 0-3 with 1 strike out, a ground out and a fly out to left in the first game.
In the 2nd game we lost 17-5. I guess that was payback for friday night. Our pitcher was not finding the zone and gave up 13 runs in 5 innings. Haha. Another guy came in to pitch and was throwing knuckleballs. He had a lot of luck until the 7th... they loaded up the bases and #7 hit a Grand Slam. First home run of the year for either team. It was pretty sweet, actually.
I went 0-3 (with a walk) in this game as well but smashed the ball twice. One went to the wall and the other to deep right. I am swinging a lot better now. Just took me a few AB's to get it back.
Played at 3rd for the first game. Played 2nd in game #2.
So... total stats so far 0-8, 3 walks. However, mighty fine defense by yours truly.

When I lived in Georgia I played tennis four nights a week, in Columbus it would cost me $100-$150 a month to play in a USTA league one day a week. I'd rather do other things besides softball, but I'll take it over nothing.
We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.
