Alumni Softball in Central Park

POST #    1104

Yesterday, I played my first softball game of the season and I can honestly say that it wasn't the prettiest exhibition of sport. Last year, I played many, many games with my alumni association, but because of my whole moving thing (and sheer laziness), I didn't play again until yesterday. I went 2-4 with two singles and two strikeouts, which is never good in softball. That's what I get for turning down batting practice and not swinging a bat for over a year. Whoops. In the outfield, I made several catches, but I also overthrew the cutoff man a couple of times. Whoops again. I'm sure hope I'll do better next time. One day after the game, I'm sore. Sadly, that speaks to the sorry state of my fitness. My hip, my calves, quads, and my throwing shoulder are all in some mild state of discomfort.

Next year, if there is a game on the same day as the Puerto Rican day parade, I'm not going to play. It was a huge pain in the ass getting to the great lawn. Got off the train at 86th and Lex and was told that I couldn't go across on 86th and was diverted to 85th, then to 91st, then to 96th. After finally getting across, I had to walk all the way back down to about 86th before I could get to the fields. Maybe I should blame my poor play on the parade.

Two strikeouts in softball? Yeesh! In our league here at NASA that means you have to bring two cases of beer to the next game!
