Friday at the Ball Game

The View from Third Base
Friday's are good nights for baseball. I actually had tickets to see the Orioles, who defeated the Boston Red Sox 3-2, but I traded them in to attend and coach the GORC U10 Intramural Dodgers. 
Coach Mike with the Boys After the Game

I actually love coaching the boys as they learn to love the game of baseball. Last evening was a great game. As the shadows lengthened, they staged a great comeback by trying and then winning the game 12-7 after going down 5-2 early. 

A combination of timely hitting, great fielding and, of course, awesome pitching secured the hard fought victory. Jackson contributed to the victory with a solid hit that scored a couple of runs and good fielding at third base. 

The team needed the win to set the tone for the upcoming week in which they have four more games to close out the season. There are so many games because of rainouts earlier during the season. 

Another game today! Let's hope for another win.
