…to be hitting homeruns!
Not on opening night, though.
(Who wants to look like a big-shot on the first night out, right?)
Highlights from the first Ideal Boltz game:
- The 2nd baseman on the other team bent his knee THE WRONG WAY during a play… sending him to the hospital via ambulance. According to Wade (a physical therapist on our team), the 2nd baseman tore his MCL, ACL, RCL, ICL… or something like that! Surgery is going to be needed to repair it.
- Which reminds me of our final game of the season LAST year in which Bo swung hard, and hit the ball, but when he started to run toward first base, his pivot foot didn’t budge — causing his knee to become dislocated. Resulting in yet ANOTHER ambulance dispatch to the softball field!
Highlights from the first BCC game:
New team jerseys and hats. You can spot these guys from a mile away in their BCC orange:
Frequently seen at a softball field: kids and pets:
Two of the most photogenic kids at the ballpark, Sophie (4) daughter of Mark and Erin; and Blaine (2) grandson of Bob and Sue. (Check out the expressions, especially on Blaine’s face, as you click through this series of photos. Blaine goes from being your typical cry-baby… to a stud-muffin… to a macho man… right before your very eyes. Too cute!)
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
