Will has a tough game tonight, but he HAD to play nine holes of golf beforehand. Facing tough competition, both the opponents and on his own team, he really needs to focus on baseball. His BA is only OK, though his OBP is one of the better ones on the team (thanks to walks & HBPs). I don’t think he has an extra-base hit all year, unlike plenty of teammates. I have no idea what stats the coaches look at, if any. Most of the batting order changes have made sense…aggressive Richie was moved way up to second, and best hitter Bradley went from second to third. Will has batted cleanup every game. That may change…slender slugger Tyler returns Monday.
NOTE: After several strikeouts, Richie dropped to 7th in the order. Parker has been on fire, and was moved to the two spot. He responded with two hits. And Will doubled, a line drive over the leftfielder's head, that one-hopped the fence. Also a walk and HBP.
We have nothing planned for the weekend…I’m sure I’ll go swimming with Matthew. Tomorrow is month end, and one co-worker is off, so it will be a long day. Will has Sunday BP, and doubleheaders Monday and Tuesday.
The Orlando game did seem to go on and on. Will and his friends were amazed. While I hope Orlando wins out, it sure seems unlikely. That would be big. I’m sure we’ll be watching tonight as well.
