Dr. K Strikes OutPosted: July 30, 2008
It took 57 years and then some, but I finally struck out in slo-pitch softball.
Happened in the third inning last night, during a 10-9 extra-inning loss. Took a couple of pitches, one for a strike, then swung and missed twice.
How humbling. Still can’t believe it happened. Been bummed out all day.
Despite the loss, we made the playoffs again, like every year. We’re the New York Yankees of the Poughkeepsie softball league.
And we open against the team that beat us last night. A tough loss, as we came back from an 8-0 deficit only to lose in the eighth inning.
We’re primed for redemption. As they say, payback is a _____.
