I went to a varsity baseball game and freshmen softball game broke out.

Yesterday (Sat., May 07th), I had a boys' H.S. varsity baseball game. I was on the bases and a very good umpire (works college ball) and friend (who is recovering from cancer; just finished chemo last week; I don't know how he does it) was on the plate (he wanted the plate and I was not one to argue with him because I consider him a better umpire than me. The Visitors is a Div. I team and the Home team is a Div. IV team; head coaches are good friends and that is why the game had been scheduled.

Starting time is scheduled for 12:00pm but with the threat of rain in the air we get started at 11:55am. V was leading 14-12 going into the top of the seventh; V proceeded to score three more runs for a 17-12 lead going into the bottom of the seventh. H scores five run in the bottom of the seventh to tie the score at 17-17. It is now 03:00pm.

The eighth inning is scoreless and V goes down one, two, three in the top of the ninth. Then, in the bottom of the ninth, with one out and two men on, B/R4 hits a monster three-run shot to left field for a walk-off home run. We walk of the diamond at 03:35pm.

I thought I had just worked a girls' H.S. freshmen softball game. I really felt bad for my partner, but he laughed it off as just another day at the office.

Don't work softball, but the boxscores around here do not show much scoring, even at Freshmen level.
