Last night the girls had their first softball game of the season! I thought for sure this game would get rained out, but the rained stopped about 5:00 and we were able to play.
I was really proud of all of the girls. They played really well. We only had six girls, so everyone got to bat quite a few times. There were a few times when a girl would score a run, then turn around and bat right away! Delaney struck out the first three times? Then I adjusted her batting stance and she got a hit the next at bat. I was coaching first base and the smile on her face as she ran was everything. Caden and Delaney got three hits each I think? Our fielding needed a little work, but it’s the first game so expectations were low.
Just as we were starting the last inning the coach from the other team came out to say he thought the game was over. There was a discrepancy about the start time and how late the last inning could start. They discussed the rules but in the end he said the parents were done, so they were ending the game. It was the weirdest thing. What does that even mean “the parents are done”? It was only 7:40, it wasn’t raining, and it wasn’t super cold. At that point, they were ahead 5-3, but we’re not sure if they will forfeit the game since they ended it early? Either way, it was a super frustrating way to end things.
