Take Me Out To The Ball Game
Last night I attended my 10 year old granddaughter's softball game. I have been to 99% of her ball games over the last couple of years, but last night was the most exciting. It was cold, there were millions of bugs, and we were on the edge of our seats. For the first time at the end of the game the teams were tied and had to play an extra inning!!! The other team was up first and did not even get on base, three batters, three outs.
Then our team was up, First batter struck out! Second batter got a base hit, third batter got a great hit and due to an error (overthrow) by the other team the person on base got all the way to home and it was all over! The girls were so excited, as were all the parents and other spectators. It is too bad the season is over as these girls are just now learning to play as a team. Well, there is always next spring. Oh, and my granddaughter was playing third base. She has rotated between catcher, first base and third base. I love watching her play, she is a good sport and always does her best.
Oh and did I tell you it was cold and there were millions of bugs.
