We had our first game of the season in our 30-and-over baseball league today. Ironically, we started the season the same day that the MLB season kicks off.
We were blessed to have an absolutely gorgeous day in the Nation’s Capital. It was sunny, bright and in the upper 60’s. Perfect weather for baseball — especially since we played smack dab in the middle of the day — 11am – 2pm.
Our team won the championship last fall for our division. Most of us haven’t played or practiced since then, including myself, so I was curious to see how we would play.
Fortunately, we played well and won 12 – 11. If we didn’t give up 8 runs in the 7th inning, we would have won going by a large margin, but we’ll take the win any way we can get it.
It was great to get back out there with the fellas — we would have a group of good guys who love playing the game — and love needling each other.
I had 4 at-bats … 2 hits, 1 walk, 1 sac bunt, 1 stolen base and 1 run scored. Considering I haven’t played since last Nov, I was happy w/ the game.
This is a great week in Sports — in addition to the opening of the MLB season, it’s the NCAA Championship Game on Monday night and the Masters this weekend. What a great week!
