Game 4
 

Home Up


 

    All the hard work the kids on Samantha's team has been putting in is beginning to show some dividends, as they managed to secure their first victory of the season tonight, beating the cubs 15-8. Sam had a good overall game tonight. She didn't get any hits with her new bat, but she did get walked three times (officially she was 0-0 from the plate). She also played well in the field and was brought in to pitch the final inning. She struck out three boys during her inning of work tonight, which was very impressive. She made one throwing error to first base that cost her team a couple of runs, but most importantly not the game! Congrats Rays on your first win of the year! May there be many more...

    If you happened to look at either Tyler or Drew's pages to see how they did in their Thursday games, you will have noticed that they were postponed. This was due to the severe rain that we had the previous few days, leaving all of the fields at least partially underwater. As you can see in the pictures below, some of the fields were still quite wet tonight. Prior to the game Sam's coach told the team that if they won he would jump into the puddle that was in the softball outfield. Keeping his word, after the game he dove in, head first! The kids were beyond thrilled to see this!
