Celebration after just losing a game? Yes, that’s exactly what we (players and parents)did last evening. What a fantastic game we had! After the first couple of innings we were losing 7-2 and we were worried about a deja vu of last week’s game. The girls really surprised everyone and themselves by fighting back and totally shutting down the other team in spite of 2 injured players. Final score was 7-6!! I think we are on the cusp of a great turn around this season. Every player played their positions just like they were meant to do. Great pitching, great base running, great throwing and great catching. A perfect combination for an awesome game!
May be they meditated over last weeks outcome! or may be they didn’t think about the game at all!!
Here is a quote from Carl Yastrzemski one of the legends of Boston Red Sox, “I think about baseball when I wake up in the morning. I think about it all day and I dream about it at night. The only time I don’t think about it is when I’m playing it.”
I think the last part of the sentence here is the most important. I believe the girls were just having fun playing!!
