Score box

Yesterday was Corwin’s last baseball game of the season. They ran hot and cold, making some terrible errors and good plays. The biggest problem was batting, with a couple of three up three down innings. They were also short a player, missing the coach1, and I had to be the first base coach (now that’s desperate). Corwin only had one on base from three at bats. One was my fault — Corwin hit a grounder to the first baseman, who grabbed it and touched the base with his glove. I thought this made Corwin out and didn’t make him go through the motions. But the umpire said the first baseman didn’t have control of the ball so if Corwin had touched he would have been safe. Ah well.

Corwin did make a great catch out in center, which you can see here. He only had one other hit to him, which he stopped and got infield to hold the runner at first.


1 The coach was at the originally scheduled game, but it was rained out and he couldn’t make the rescheduled day.

I didn’t quite follow how Corwin caught the ball yet ended up with his glove the wrong way. The ball comes in from the upper right, yet his glove up point to the lower left. Yet he caught it, you can see just a bit of it in the glove if you look close.
