Belated Wednesday Softball Blogging – I Am… Not Mighty.

4 comments June 8th, 2006at 10:21pm Posted by Eli

I continue to suck on Wednesdays. I think it has something to do with fatigue, or maybe the Wednesday crew just plays better defense, but if I bet that if I could split my stats between Wednesdays and Sundays, I would be batting about 200 points higher on Sundays.

This week, after a full afternoon of picture-taking on my birthday, I was too mentally and physically drained to do much, although I did hit my first triple of the season, and I threw the ball pretty well, including another assist at third. I ended up 2-for-7 with 2 runs and 2 RBI, and a lot of popups and lazy fly balls. I should have told everyone it was my birthday before the game – maybe I could have gotten some favorable drops or something…

On the neato side, my team did turn a triple play on a fly ball to center, thanks to a couple of inexperienced baserunners who were off at the crack of the bat.

Current Stats: 8 games, .558 BA (24-43), 6 2B, 1 3B, 4 HR, 15 runs, 18 RBI.

Career Stats: 35 games, .571 BA (136-238), 23 2B, 2 3B, 5 HR, 76 runs, 58 RBI.

I don’t think he’s gonna get there…

Less light in the evening means slower exposures, which means more blur, which is actually kinda cool-looking. Will need to do some deliberate experimenting with that at some point…

Adventurous baserunning pays off.

    Slow your shutter WAAAAYYY down.

    I love doing that.

    If it’s not sharp, it might as well be really weird and blurry.

    Yep, that’s the plan. All I really need to do is lower the ISO (I use aperture priority mode for softball pics) – 800 is too grainy anyway.

    […] In other narstatistical news, I decided to follow up on an earlier remark and split out my Wednesday and Sunday softball stats for the season so far, and the difference really is quite striking: […]

    […] I know, I’m being frivolous and apolitical today, but hey, I was super-wonky yesterday, and it’s my blog, dammit. And right now I have to focus my loins and gird my brain for the intensity-packed pressure-cooker of intensity that is Wednesday Night Softball. In fact, it is such an epic contest of wills that we do not even keep score, lest such mundane detail distract us from the purity of the competition. […]
