So we hit the field in some seriously hot weather for our first of two. We gave up five runs out of the gate, but then the defense kicked it into high gear. We played ‘Blue Ram’ baseball. The complete package on defense and then innings of 2, 0, 0, 1, 9. Yup that’s how we roll. Again not a great day with the stick, but didn’t hit into any double plays and didn’t leave any runners stranded. It doesn’t sound like a lot, but baby steps.
That’s a lot of motion for a big body and considering I had one of the fastest guys on the team nipping at my heels not too shabby. I think the main positive from these three games is that I made it out in one piece, unlike last year. The Ride for Heart is Sunday and I will be going into it ready to go (unlike last year when the week before I tore cartilage and strained ligaments).
