Second Place Trophy
The softball season is over. Our team took second place. I use the term "our" loosely since I am not actually ON the team. But, I did have to play as an alternate a couple times this year. The final night of the season was last night. It was a situation where all the ramaining contenders had to play game after game until teams dropped out of the running. The first game of the evening started at 5:20 PM. The final game ended at 11:40 PM. It was 5 games straight through with no break. If we had won one more game we'd have taken first place. Some of the college aged crowd had their first day of the new semester this morning so I don't suppose any of them started school real rested. Anyway, since Mr. Sunny is the team captain our family was blessed with taking the trophy home. One year in the past we took first place and got T-shirts. I remember it because I played in only one game that entire season-the final one-which got me a team shirt.
