Ugh. We squeaked out a one-run win, but a pretty crappy game for me. Started out well, 4 for my first 5 with 2 runs and and an RBI, but closed out with an unproductive 1-for-6 (so 5-for-11 overall), with much choking with runners in scoring position. Defense was okay except for one bad drop; not too many fly balls, but I was throwing pretty well…

Oh, and something stung or bit or stuck me really badly on my heel when I was trying to retrieve a batting practice home run. No idea what it was, but I saw something flying off after a really sharp, stabbing pain completely out of proportion to the size of the wound. I don’t think it was a sting, it’s not swollen or itchy or anything. And I had a ball ricochet off my other shin… Fun times.

Current Stats: 18 games, .556 BA (74-133), 12 2B, 41 runs, 21 RBI.

No action shots today – we were 5-on-5, so when I wasn’t hitting or baserunning, I was pitching, catching or playing first – not much time for photos.

    Well, on the plus side, I did a pretty decent job of serving up base hits and home run/doubles to my teammates, so that’s something. I just wish I could bat against myself…

    Five on Five?? Sounds more like Texas small school football than softball! =)

    Well, desperate times call for desperate measures. No opposite field, batting team supplies their own picther, catcher, and 1B, “ghost runners” if you get more than one person on.

    I actually had at least one opportunity to drive myself in, but couldn’t pull it off. I think it would have violated the laws of physics or something.
