What’s the worst thing that can happen to an umpire after a game? His guide dog bites him.
With the Wildfire pitcher throwing balls at 55 mph, the Finesse girls had their work cut out for them. The heat was brutal, wearing everyone down and within a couple of innings Finesse had pulled two girls from the field for their safety.
The highlights of the game were primarily the gasps and groans from the stands as the officials made one questionable (bad) call after another. While everyone tried to maintain their sportsman-like behavior, it was tough to watch. I thought only horses slept standing up? She’s out, I mean safe, I mean out, wait…what did I say?
Ok, all joking aside, it was a tough loss for Finesse 10u. First order of business after the game was scheduling a 2 hour practice for the girls on their day “off” to get the softball back into the players. They also received a talk on the importance of hydration – we do not want to lose anymore girls during the games due to the heat.
