Getting Better...Getting Worse

Well, after weeks of inactivity, Softball Enthusiast finally got back on the field of play. Her ankle was well enough to give it a go and she did well. She went 1-2-3 in her first two innings of work before running out of gas in her third inning on the mound. She has a long way to go to get back into shape but we have a plan that includes me making her work out every day until she gets back into shape. She has throw every day for the last 5 days since getting the ok to play again and we will do this for a while. Her main motivation was watching girls play that are not nearly as good as her but are healthy. Her team lost on Sunday when the second baseman couldn’t catch either of two pop flies in the infield and the third baseman missed an easy foul pop-up. We had a discussion on being motivated and using the her injury to push her to the next level. She sat on the bench for all but 3 inning during the 5 games they played this weekend and she was pissed. I think she expected to get all her playing time back after a 6 week layoff but there was no way she could play much more the maybe 2 games over the weekend. She was complaining about it as we walked back to the car and I told her if she has a problem she needs to talk to her coach so that he can explain his reasons for not playing her more. I can only speculate but he knows why she didn’t play more.

Speedy E. made a tourney team that plays tourneys after the in-house season is over. She then left her equipment bag at the ballpark thus she has no glove or bat. I was so pissed. I’m still pissed. Anyway, we have an old glove that she will use unless someone is nice enough to turn her stuff into the park district office.

I can’t write anymore…Leaving your equipment at the ballpark is about the stupidest thing you can do.
