Softball & Soreness

Apparently when you haven't played Softball in three years and then you play two games back to back, you get this thing called soreness. And let me tell ya, it's a bitch!

Yesterday afternoon I got an email from a co-worker asking me if I would be interested in playing Softball that night. They were short a few girls(coed team) and they had to have enough girls to play so that they didn't have to sit guys. So I said sure.

I got to the park around 7:30. It was freezing cold and it was raining. Awesome!  Another co-worker and I started warming up. Finally it was time to play. 

The first game I played 2nd base which isn't normal for me. I am usually put in the outfield or catching. I actually did pretty well at it. It was interesting that is for sure. And the one time I did bat, I had a nice single to the short stop area. I couldn't believe I even hit the ball, but even more I couldn't believe that I hit it as far as I did. This isn't the norm for me. We ended up only playing 3 innings of that game because of the 20 run rule. Yeah, we lost horribly, haha!

The second game they put me at 1st base. Again, not a position I am used to. I actually did pretty good with it too. I was pretty impressed with myself. And this game I got to bat three times and got on base two of three times. But I hit the ball every single time. I just wasn't quick enough to get on 1st for one of them, haha! We lost this game too, but not as badly. Only by five runs. 

It was actually a lot of fun to get out there and play again. Hopefully I can do it again sometime. And hopefully next time I won't be so damn sore the next morning. OMFG I can barely walk today. My legs hurt so bad. No pain no gain though, right?!

  1. Good job! I know for sure that I would never be able to hit the ball (unless it was a beach ball)!!
