Fun, fun, fun.

Had my first softball game tonight, second for the team but I sat out last week. I was completely freaked out before the game, to the point of nearly backing out. I haven't played in about 10 years, I didn't know anyone on the team other than my sis and her finace. Its a B tier team (A being the highest level).

Turns out I did just fine. I made contact with the ball each time at bat and even made it to base on errors 2x. The catching I'll have to work on. They appear to be a great bunch of peeps. They won something like 24 -4 last week and I think the score this week was 27 -6 against us. The way my sis described it to me was that they play softball so they can get together to drink afterwards. I think I'm going to like this.

New nagging fear is that they are accepting me now, but will get sick of my crappy play in a few weeks. (sigh) I really have to get over this.

Oh - and I did manage to get injured, throw came in from the field and managed to hit my calf just past where the shin-guards cover. Got a great round bruise starting. You know, for a person that doesn't bruise easily, I'm sure getting enough of them lately.
Who does she think she is?

I didn't know of any other reason to play softball?? Hehe.

It sounds like you had fun, and that's what counts.

Exactly. My biggest fear was that it was going to be a super competitive bunch. My last teams were like that, hence the 10 year hiatus. It just was not fun.

D'oh! My dirty little secret's out! Have fun on your trip. And don't worry about the body wash, it just ain't the same.

Ciao bella

Well, you made contact with the ball. I couldn't hit a whiffle ball on 3 straight pitches tossed by an 11 year old at 15 feet.

24-4? 27-6? Those aren't games. Those are slaughters! But as long as you had fun and got to drink (responsibly, of course) afterwards, who cares? :-)
