Last game of the season

I'm going to attempt to blog a little more consistently. I figured if I can take the time to post on my Last Song of the Day blog every day, that I could throw a few words up here.

We had our last softball game tonight, it was a make up game that they decided to do on the hottest day of the year. We ended up winning in the bottom of the 6th on a walk off, I was on base but the runner in front of me was the winning run. It's a co-ed team and you have to go guy/girl in the line-up, you can also replace a girl with a kid under 15 years old. We ended up 1 short on the girl/kid so if that happens and you have 2 guys next to each other in the line up, the 2nd guy has to bat either with a tee ball bat or bat with your non dominant side. We ended up with 1 short so I had to bat left handed. First at bat, I would have grounded out but the first basemen dropped it, I'd like to say it was my blazing speed that threw him off, but that would be a lie. Second at bat, I walked which is just fine with me since I was batting left handed. Third at bat was in the bottom of the 6th, last inning, and I hit a lined single to center field. The next batter hit it to left field but it was dropped and the girl in front on me scored. I could have scored as well but I stopped since it was over. It was an exciting finish to the game. We won it 17-16.

I did all right in the field, I pitched a few strikeouts, no walks and I made 3 or 4 plays hit back at me. It's slow pitch, the strikeouts don't mean anything I generally did but I take pride in the no walks and fielding my position well.

Samantha had a really great hit up the middle and she seemed happy tonight, was pretty talkative to everyone which is always great to see. I do love playing with her on the field. A little father/daughter time.

Afterwards, they said they need a few extra players for a tournament on the 20th to make another team since our team didn't have enough to compete so Samantha and I volunteered for that. So I guess technically, it wasn't my last game. Although the first game is at 8 am on a Saturday so I'm not looking forward to that first one.

I'm going to bed now, stupid 7:30 games, I don't get home until after 9 but I'm beat, so I'm out. I got something up here and I'll try to blog more often.
