1. In K’s first senior division at-bat, she nailed a triple for 3 RBIs, pulling her team ahead, then stole home during the next batter when the catcher missed the ball. It was a close one; her slide onto the plate and the catcher’s tag near simultaneous.
2. Last night Nick – coming off a 2007 season of few hits – found his groove with an in-the-park home run, followed by a strike out that he then recovered from for a bounced-over-the-fence ground roll double and solid drive down the middle. (Unfortunately, that last one went right into the pitcher, nailing his leg. The kid crumpled into a ball of agony and eventually limped off the field, greatly mitigating the thrill of seeing Nick finally hit. But he seemed OK by the end of the game. Whew.)
3. A girl on K’s team that’s never played before got her first connection. The hit wasn’t huge – she was thrown out at first – but the grin on her face was. We could see the smile from the stands.
