Game 4

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2007

Meh, we lost again. We were tied 6-6 (again) when the home team was on their last time batting. All they needed was 1 run to win, and they got it...along with 2 extra runs. This was that Agatina's team from game 1. We've beaten them before, and I really thing we should have won this one too. We were short people, had some outfield-related difficulties and the umpire made some extremely questionable calls that all contributed. For instance, I was playing first base for a few innings and on one particular play the ball was hit on the ground to the shortstop who got it and threw to me. It hit my glove way down by the bottom resulting in my dropping it. I bent down and picked it back up while standing on the bag the whole time. The batter was about 6 or 8 feet away from me after I had picked up the ball and the umpire called him safe. It was ridiculous.

It didn't even look like we would be able to play this game because we were going to be short on some girls. As it was, someone's mom had to fill in a spot. I find that really annoying, not that a mom had to play (I'm very grateful she could because it prevented us from forfitting), but that so many people signed up to play and nobody shows up. We try to have a practice once a week, and last week it was just the team captain and I who showed up. I realize it's summer and people go on vacation and such, but I can think of a bunch of people who said they were going to be there (a couple said so for that particular game) and didn't show.

Maybe all you need is a little more organization. Check out TeamSnap. I'm using TeamSnap so my Vball team members can let me know when they will be on vacation so I can find subs ahead of time.

I'll mention this to the guy that's in charge of our team, thanks. It might help a little, but he told me that someone emailed him the day before the game saying they would be there...and they were a no-show. I just don't think some people take this seriously.
