Doubleheader #2

Last night our softball team (“The Green Machine,” a combination of The Gathering Tree and CrossWay Church) played our second doubleheader.  In this strangest of seasons, we hadn’t played a game for about five weeks.  This one was against SonRise.  We lost both games again, but we sure had a lot of fun doing it!  The first game was pretty lopsided.

Halfway through the second game, it was looking like it would be more disastrous than the first.  But then something happened and both our offense and defense came alive.  We lost again, but it was much, much closer than the first game.  We even had an inning or two where we had to take the field because of the eight-run rule (that is, we scored eight runs, the maximum allowed by one team in an inning).

Maybe next time….

  1. Nathan! You forgot to add that in that second game, part of our turning on of the offense was your TRIPLE that you ripped. It was sweet. Your best hit of the season. I’ve seen you hit like that in practice, so it was great to show it off to the other team! 🙂

  2. Well, now that you mention it, it was the second-best hit of my life (the first being a homer I hit in the pitching machine league when I was a little kid). It couldn’t have come at a better time, playing against SonRise.

    You know, maybe if we went out on the field and played about ten innings before the next doubleheader, we’ll knock off the rust BEFORE we get behind!

  3. By the way, I may not have mentioned the triple on here since I didn’t want to seem big headed, but I guess I should confess that I emailed my dad and brothers and told them about it!

  4. As you should have… 🙂

  5. Heheh…
