Softball Report



Snappy title, eh?

BOMBERS - 19 Renegades - 1
BOMBERS - 19 Renegades - 8


We took care of business and positioned ourselves as we needed for the round robin seeding tournament next week. We move to 9 and 5, fourth place, which means we will play the one-two-three teams. Taking two, and having one other thing fall into place, will move us into second place and give us a first-round bye in the playoffs.

The Renegades are always fun to play. Win or lose, they comport themselves with class. They beat us in the playoffs in 2009, but lost a whole bunch of their players the following year, due to many of them having to transfer to another city with their jobs, and have been rebuilding since then. Dwayne Dahlbach, their coach, is an erudite gentleman and plays the game the right way.

We jumped on top with seven runs in the first inning of game one and never looked back. In game two, the Renegades held a 5 - 2 lead going into the third, but the Bombers scored 13 runs in the third and that was that for all intents and purposes.

BOMBERS stats

And that's all for today. Back to work now, and I'll try to give you something more later in the week. It may be softball-related or it may not. You'll just have to take your chances. Sorry!

Soon, but with more better stuff is a crap shoot.

Well, I'll just say that softball coaches are not often referred to as 'erudite'. 'Course, nowadays, not many people even know what 'erudite' means. . .

Go Bombers!

Just thought of something here, Jim. With all the softball games you have cooking every single spring/summer and the attention you pay to them via nursing sore muscles and joints between games to the mental work you write about as you configure statistics upon statistics about your team, your games, I think it probably is very over due that you finally get back to work and provide the services for which you get paid TO your employer, don't you? Just kidding there as I, for one, sure wouldn't like it if you did something like that for it would mean there would be a big gap I fear then in your postings! And who would want to see that? Not ME!

GO BOMBERS!

Jeni - I am fortunate enough to be employed in a way that affords some down time between (intensely mentally taxing) work segments. I try not to take too much advantage of my employer's largesse in allowing me to do what I need to blow off steam. I thank God for the position I have, I suppose I can honestly say that!

So happy for you and your teammates, Jim!
Hugs,

I'm glad to hear that things are going well. I think Courtesy Flush is the best team name I've heard in a while. A pretty apt name for a team with a 1-13 record too. Good luck and keep us posted on how things turn out.
