Our softball team ran into a buzz-saw last night.
The facility where we play has their own team of ringers, many of whom played for the local high school baseball teams who just finished their seasons. So, our team got buzz-sawed. To tell you had bad it was, we played two games in an hour and a half. Both games were called due to the mercy rule.
Oh yeah, did I mention the "home" team got a lot of home cooking in calls? We had, by far, the two laziest umps I've ever seen. I think they used super glue on their shoes cause these guys never got out of position to even try to make a fair call.
That said, I did get back on track. I ground out once and walked the next time up. I scored a run during the second game as well. Not that it really mattered much in the grand scheme.
But it keeps us humble. We're at .500 for the year at 3-3. We've got four weeks left to go and eight more games. Time to start stringing some wins together.
