Position Played:

               
Samantha and her Holly teammates were scheduled to have their season ending game against Linden tonight, but the Linden coach notified us that they would not have enough players to field a team and would have to forfeit. Rather than have the players end their season without seeing each other or playing, it was decided to hold a scrimmage game against the parents, siblings, and friends of the players on the team.

For Sam, that meant she would be facing off against her father as well as her younger brother and sister. That's right - both Drew and Jay took the field to face off against the Holly Senior baseball team. All of the kids represented themselves extremely well tonight, with all of them getting at least one hit while also making plays in the field.

There may have been some cheating taking place from time to time (wink, wink), but for the most part it was a well played game between the two teams. Most importantly, everyone who took the field had a great time playing. There was only one injury in the game, and of course it happened to one of our kids. Jayden took a laser ground ball off the ankle towards the end of the game and had to be carried off the field. Thankfully she was up and walking around after the game, so no harm done.
