Let’s play ball! Fall ball that is. Saturday we started our first ever fall ball season for the RGSA softball league. This fall season has been established to be an educational season for the girls in order to establish good techniques and help beginners. On the Sluggers team, we have done just that. The Sluggers coaches have established goals to work on each week to help prepare us for the spring season. This allows for our season to slow down and improve our performance.
Our goal is to take a step back and help our girls become better players and hopefully improve ourselves as coaches. Of course, coach Candice found being a “better coach” a bit difficult in our first game Saturday and got a little intense with the SWAT coach.
Just kidding! Even the coaches are having a good time this fall ball opening day.
Sluggers had a double header and despite the lack of practice time, they did a great job. There were some good plays where the Sluggers were communicating well with one another.
The Sluggers had never played the Invasion team and we didn’t know what to expect. When we saw them warming up on the field it made us even more nervous, and then look at the first base coach. I don’t know about you but mirrored sunglasses make me uneasy.
When the girls took the field they were feeling a bit rough. Exhaustion from the first game and a disappointing first at bat doesn’t make for happy Sluggers.
– and Lizzy’s booty still hurt from that unfortunate hit earlier.
Well what’s a Slugger to do when things look down? Who do you turn to when it looks like the fight is all but lost? The “Champ”. You turn to Champ because she knows how to chip away at the Invasion armor.
Curious about our next goal, come to our next game next Saturday. You can find the schedule here.
Oh yah. You want to know who won the game?
YOU KNOW WHO WON. TWO GAMES TWO WINS.
