Wednesday Softball Blogging - The Golden Rule

Very peculiar game tonight. I started out 3-for-3, but literally couldn't do anything right in the field: Couldn't throw, catch, or even block the ball. Complete disaster. Then I got my focus back and got some cloud cover so the sun wasn't right in my eyes, and played lights-out defense, catching or cutting off everything in sight... and couldn't buy a hit until my last at-bat. I hit one bloop that the centerfielder bobbled and then dove to catch, and another one that was a perfect, right-on-the-screws line drive right at him. Must be some kind of instant karma kind of thing, I dunno. Final result, a mediocre 4-for-7 with 2 runs and an RBI, but pretty good for a Wednesday.

wow -- you get seven at-bats a game? I get four if I'm lucky. Either your team is very good, or mine just sucks.

Bear in mind we only had 6 or 7 players, and the defense is a bit less than stellar (except when I'm batting)...

87% of homers in the current season. Homers up 600% from lifetime totals. What are you eating?

Eli said...

Well, my "lifetime" totals just include last season, since that's when I started keeping track.

It might just be the bat, or the various funky adjustments I've made (pigeon-toed front foot, leg kick, high hands, finger grip instead of palm grip).

Is that Marv Throneberry?? Looks like he's going the wrong way around.

I think it was Germany Schaefer who stole first base, actually.
