"GETTING INTO THE SWING" of our Softball thing!

Posted by K.C. Frogge on April 3, 2011 at 6:15 PM

It was a GORGEOUS day Saturday (April 2) as we kicked off our 2nd year of PlayDays fun with our "Saturday Softball Scrimmage"... 13 of us showed up, and it was a very lucky number indeed! 


All who participated had a wonderful time -- Meredith, Nancy, Bea D., Becky, Zoe, Kara, Rene, Val, Amy, Helen, Donna, Bea A. and K.C. -- and those of us who were 2010 PlayPals met three new PlayPals for 2011.


We played a fun scrimmage game I like to call "1-2-3", where everyone counts off "1, 2, 3" around a circle until everyone is assigned to one of three "squads".  The "ones" get to bat first while the "twos" and "threes" play the field with real pitching.  The "ones" bat around until they record three outs, and everyone runs when a ball is hit.  After three outs, the "ones" go to the field and the "twos" come in to bat, with the "threes" staying in the field.  This continues until every squad gets a few turns, or until our two-hour time limit is up, whichever comes first. 


We actually played just beyond our normal 1:00 finish time because we had so much fun, and many of us were a bit sore from our first time out... but rest, ice, massage and some MaxFreeze* gel always gets us al back to normal quickly.


We know there are more of you out there who love to throw, catch and hit a softball, so regardless of when you jump in, just come and have a "ball" with us.  We ARE a fun bunch, and have a great time at whatever skill level we happen to be at!
