Killer beez night started off OK, ended OK but the middle wasn’t too great. A lot of jaw jacking, a lot of mental mistakes, bats being slow etc. I played pretty well, second game I really hit the ball well starting it off with a well hit ball in the gap right center that I was out of the box fast, ended up scoring an in the field homerun. That was after our 1 and 2 batters K’d…. But we scored 8 runs first game 31 runs the second game, guess which one we won (hint it takes runs to win)
Tuesday was crossfit, you can read all about that on fitness.nickbukosky.com
Zilla Night, Bolin came out to play with us to meet a few of the guys and to hang out. It was our last game of the year in a season riddled with disappointment. I had a great time playing just we didnt’ win a lot. There were a few close games some others that we got blown out. The good news is there is the play offs left. I hit well and fielded pretty good, I did miss a ball when I was catching, but that was all kinds of messed up with multiple calls happening on the field.
Fat kids night, we only had nine 🙁 Makes for a more difficult game that’s for sure. I think we ended up losing both games to a team we should have MINIMALLY split with. I hit ok, I fielded good – the second game. the first game I couldn’t get anything. I got a little gun shy after getting hit in the arm so I started pulling. I did however want to crush the ball past their shortstop who just kept running his mouth, it was probably the most annoying person I’ve run into all year. I hit lasers past him twice, one that was in his glove and blew past him. It only quieted him for minutes, but man those were sweet minutes. No Panda but Adam was there, and so was Eric, the guy that started the team and got me on it. And of course the fatty brothers, good guys.
Friday I played with Sand dunes since Panda was on vacation, we were playing in firemans in bloomington. Its an asa tourney, I have no asa bats… I haven’t hit an ASA ball in a very long time… I didn’t hit well…. The team did OK but gave up a few key errors and ended up costing us the game. I got to meet some new people and over all I had fun. A couple of the guys mashed some long home runs. I did sneak a workout in before the game (fitness.nickbukosky.com)
Saturday 10:00am with Sandunes, this time we only had 10 hoping to win so we could play with Panda at 1:30. Well again ASA, but this time I hit the ball, my first hit of the tourney was an IF home run. No before you start thinking i’m fast and all that happy crap, I had another first. First time playing on a field that had no fences. I hit a gap and just ran. Wookie hit a ball that rolled to the other fields pitching rubber, maybe past…. I got to see my first triple play in a very long time, since co-ed I think. 3rd – 2nd – 1st triple play… fun stuff. We ended up winning this game 23-3. Second game Panda just barely made it but we didn’t do well. Lots of mental mistakes and added to that we didn’t hit. We kept hitting it in the air making it easy for them to catch the ball. Josh kept saying down down down. So my ONE at bat I hit it down, crushed it pretty good too good. Right at 2nd, he fielded it and tossed me out easy. I could have at least made him move. I also got another first…. got hit in the mouth. First time thats ever happened. I was catching ball going out of play from a toss in the field, took a bad hop hit me in mouth. So dumb. I felt like an idiot.
All and all a long week of softball. Got some sun playing and watching at firemans and then more watching at duk duk, got to talk with some people I never get to see like Andy. I actually watched one of his games, dude is good! Panda of course always fun to see play. Black Sheep, they were doing good but lost a close game they kinda gave away. A lot of softball this week that is for sure.
