One of the best games of the summer. You snowbirds don't know what you miss in this summer league 95 degree weather and 95% humidity. We only had two teams today but we did put 14 players on each team and played 5 outfielders. Simon's visitors were up 11-2 after 3 1/2 innings. Fabian's home team came back with a 6 run 4th and 4 run 5th. By the bottom of the 9th it was Simon 15 and Fabian 14. Lee Baker led off the bottom of the ninth with a single up the middle. Fabian's team got the tying run in with runners on First base and Third base with one out. The last batter hit into a double play which ended the game with a 15-15 Tie.
There were many very hard infield line drives hit and caught by both sides. The golden glovers were Laffoon, Lopez, and Marino in the outfield for the visitors. For home team they were Rad, King, Vandenburg and Fabian. Our fellow players also said I should mention a backhanded grab headed up the middle of a sharp 1 hopper by me for a force at second. We all get lucky sometimes.
See y'all Tuesday. I couldn't read all the writing on the score sheets to highlight the hitters. We need better penmanship. OH WELL !!!!!
Remember, there will not be any games on Friday, July 29th due to the City of Winter Haven spraying the fields.
