Fall Ball Update

Eli's team suffered an ignoble loss to the Bombers tonight. The final score was 13 to 2, though we were leading for two innings. Then they batted around twice in a row. We left bases loaded twice ourselves, including our last inning rally. We've fallen to 3 and 4 for the season, and are hurting from a two game losing streak. We play the number 1 team on Saturday. Still, it's fun to be out there, and the boys are having a blast. Coaching is a lot of work however. I don't know if I'll be head coach again. I like being an assistant.

Audrey's team lost on Tuesday in a squeaker: 2-1. They're now at 3 and 3. We had some very good fielding; several balls hit by our girls would have been hits if it wasn't for some fine glove-work by the other team. Audrey did pretty well; she can whack the ball hard when she's at bat. In the field she's a little tentative.

I realized the other day that I have years more of T-ball, little league, and softball ahead, with Graham coming up behind Eli and Audrey. Of course let's not forget the fetus to be named later. I'll end up with quite a collection of hats and t-shorts.
