Softball Report!

I jumped at the chance when AL invited me to join a beginner softball league with his family and friends earlier this year, and after what seemed like forever, we finally got our first official game out of the way.

Feel free to put up a nicer write up of the game and the team on your own AL, but I’m putting this post up just for me.

I’ve forgotten how fun organized sports are. Especially when you win, which we did. I don’t think the other team was prepared that well, so we had to be rules lawyers a little bit, but still overall a fun game and a great day.

My athletic inadequacies continue to hound me, as I was unable to complete any of the three plays I was involved as the starting center fielder. But none were technically errors, so that’s all that really matters I guess. The first inning I ended up overrunning a pop-up, and slipped on my ass trying to backpeddle to get back under the ball. Which would have been a blatant and obvious error, but Kevin was there to back me up as a good fellow outfielder should, and made the out, so no error.

Slightly better day at the plate, though I’m still trying to get that groove going, and it shows.
Bottom 2nd: Flied out to center
Bottom 4th: Infield single to first
Bottom 6th: RBI line drive single to left

So my line for the game would be…

Date   Opponent  Score   AB  R  H  2B 3B HR RBI K
May 6 HBK W 14-8 3 1 2 0 0 0 1 0

Followed by my line for the season thus far…

G  AB  R  H  2B 3B HR RBI K   AVG   OBP   SLG   OPS
1 3 1 2 0 0 0 1 0 .666 .666 .666 1.332

In case you were wondering, yes, I am a stat whore and the only purpose of these posts is so I can keep track of my numbers and get that big arbitration raise for next year.

“Come on, Benny. Man…the kid is a L, 7, WEENIE!”

Apparently PHP7 doesn't support the same function calls I wrote in 2008? I should fix this at some point.
