    Well, I finally got the chance to attend another one of Drew's baseball games, so I should have a lot of information about it to share with you. Unfortunately, it has been far too long between the game and the time I sat down to update the website for me to actually remember a whole lot about the actual game play! I can tell you that Drew spent most of the game playing first base, as has become his usual position. He accounted for a couple of outs while at first, but he also missed a pop-up by moving in to close. He spent part of one inning in relief on the mound, after his team had allowed a few runs in the inning already. At the plate Drew took a walk and was hit by a pitch, and he cranked out a single. Regardless of his exploits in the field and at the plate, it wasn't enough, as his team scuffled their way to a 16-5 defeat to the Caithness Construction team their third big loss of the year to this team.
