I compared Will’s game Monday night to the GT/FSU game…high scoring. Main pitcher Tanner broke his thumb Saturday, so with 4 games in 8 days, little 9th grader Michael got the start, and was rocked by the Shaw Park Rec Team. Crown led 6-5 going into the top of the 3rd, then Will cleared the loaded bases with a double down the LF line. He scored on a WP…on the slide he switched legs in midair, to avoid the tag.
Will pitched a shaky, scoreless inning, throwing 10 balls and 3 strikes. He hit the first batter, but was helped by 1B Charlie V’s unassisted double play.
Will reached base all three innings. He also drove in a run in the second, with a bases-loaded infield hit. Playing shortstop, he threw out three batters at first.
Classmates Alyssa, Elizabeth, Lucy, and Jordan were at the game, still buzzing about the retreat. I chatted with Lucy’s dad Lee, who grew up in
For Halloween, it looks like Matthew is going to be an Indian, and Anna a can-can girl. Don’t know where they’ll trick or treat. There was leftover retreat candy I get to hand out.
Been posting recaps and photos of the retreat on Facebook. Will saw some great photos of the drive looking at wildlife, but I can’t find that album. One family seems to be popping up regularly in the recaps.
Someone is trying to sell the first 5 issues of Sports Illustrated to Lang’s dad, for $100.00 each.
