Bulldog Drops Opener, Optimism Still Abounds

Thanks to the new kids for coming out to play. Everyone's enthusiasm plus skill level more than exceeded expectations.

Karl-o had a tough 1st inning as a 1st time pitcher giving up four runs and a number of walks. He rebounded at his 1st time at bat with a home run and with some clutch pitching. The initial Play of The Year was made by Zara with a wonderful catch in right field. Carrie later one upped her by coming up with a hard hit ball at 2nd. Final score 4-8.

Zara took photos at The Bulldog. I'll post them when the time is right.

We could use some practice time to help us learn to hit the ball out of the infield. I feel we could also make it a time of friendship and fellowship. Sunday night seems to be a time that works best so I will scout the fields of south Minneapolis to find a suitable locale.

Once again, if you are going to be unable to attend a game e-mail me by Monday prior to the game so I can locate an adequate replacement. My mobile is 612-735-1234 if you would like to hear my voice.

I Want Women!

I've had some late drop outs for lady players. Mel is out for the year, Chrissy is out much of the year, Peggy is incommunicado, Bush is gone Thursday, and Anne Bye is gone this Thursday too.
This leaves only Meg and Rachel confirmed for Thursday. The rules state we need 5 players in the field for the game. Four ladies are needed to avoid forfeit (although we have to take an out every time the missing 5th lady is supposed to bat). We need recruits ASAP!

RBarr- try to get Leah and Shelly Barry
Everyone else, bring your mom.
