It’s a Beautiful Day for a Ballgame–Let’s Play Two!

CrossWay Church and The Gathering Tree are teaming up this season in church league softball.  Last night we had our first game (games, actually–we play doubleheaders) against Ocean Pines Community Church.

We lost both games, 19-14 and 19-13, but we had a ton of fun and played a LOT better than we did in our scrimmage against SonRise a couple weeks ago!  There were a couple times when our bats really broke loose and we went on a tear, racking up hit after hit after hit.  And we had our moments in the field as well.

Even though we’re starting out 0-2, last night showed that we’ll be able to hold our own in this league.  Of course, it’s church league slow pitch softball, so it’s not like we’re chasing any Major League fantasies.  It’s nice to win, but it’s even nicer to have fun.  And last night was a blast!

One of the cool things about teaming up with GT and playing against other church teams is that we get to hang out with people from 3 churches at every game.

By the way, I have to point out that last night may have been a first in our league: We brought in Josh Engle to pitch for the last part of the second game, and in one inning, he actually struck out the side!  (For the non-sports people out there, that means all three outs that inning were strikeouts.)  Remember, this is slow pitch softball!  Strikeouts do happen (as I learned the hard way last season), but I’ve never seen three in one inning.  Bring the heat, Josh!

Trivia question: Who was known for the quote that’s the title of this post?
