No Baseball Today.....For the first time since the season began, at least my late starting season, I don't have a game....today and May 2nd are the only days, except Sundays, that I am off....I will use that time to clean up my equipment, and mow the lawn.
Yesterday, Sam coming home from Columbus, called and said he forgot his equipment for working behind the plate....and could I do the dish? OK, so much for another day of the "easy" work...but the temperatures were great, middle 70s, and not much of a wind, plenty of sun, as we arrived for the Northwest Conference game at Allen East High School. The pitchers were on, especially the young Freshman hurling for AE, and the home team defeated visiting Delphos Jefferson 4-1 in a well played game...both teams are very young, and will improve as time moves forward...a couple of close plays for Sam on the bases, nothing out of the ordinary for me, and despite a late start, we still finished up by 7pm and were on our way back to Celina.
While I am off today, Sam travels back to the Columbus area, and works a game at Jonathan Alter HS...tomorrow he has a round robin tournament double headed in the afternoon at Jackson Center, while I have that dreaded 9am prom cause beginning at Wayne Trace....some of that depends on the rain that is predicted for this afternoon and early tonight. Thus that is why I want to mow the yard....temps after today won't get out of the 50s for the next three of four days.
