Ah, finally the Popes Team-St. Benedict’s, we got wet, but it was a warm wet. Kids and wives headed for the trees to try and keep dry. Was it really raining? We wanted to get this game in so bad, we were in denial. The Popes team had us down 6 to 4 in the bottom of the 3rd when Tucker walked up to plate with bases loaded—the bat always makes a certain sound when you really cream one, sort of a ting, so, TING and the race was on to see if he could score before they threw the ball back in. (He did).
The Popes had a left handed batting kid who slid into first base on his stomach (ouch) and then he got on base again and slid (on his stomach) into 3rd (more ouch) and I think Kenwood Dry Cleaners is going to get a little business. But hat’s off to the kid for effort.
Jenny Fronhauer and Abby both got a pair of hits, the women were on fire. We were lucky to get this game in before somebody got hurt. We still have to play this team one more time-6:00 pm next Tuesday, before the Playoffs. Are we ready/Is the Pope Catholic?—Oh, yea. Chalk one up for the Turkeys—13-7.
