If you've been reading my blog for a while now, you know that I love all things baseball.
I know you guys are aware of my love for the Yankees (ahem, Jeter) but I don't write too often about my love for actually playing ball.
This year, in addition to the co-ed team I play with, I'm playing in a ladies softball league. There are pros and cons to playing with 13 women, but what I am enjoying is being able to actually 'play'.
In co-ed, what usually happens is that ladies will play at 3rd, 2nd, rover and catcher. It all depends on the team obviously, but usually that's what happens on my team anyway.
But in ladies there are no big strong superstar men to play short stop, so I get to move over from 3rd to short stop. I'm loving it! I haven't played short stop since my softball days when I was a teenager.
Here's the thing. I have zero problem making the throw to 1st.
But from some stupid reason I over throw it to 2nd all. the. friggin'. time.
It's kinda like Greg Zaun in this video. Easy throw, right? WRONG. This actually made me laugh out loud, kind of a lot.
Even last night, I had a play at 2nd base... I had time, so I told myself "Ok Amy, nice easy throw" and proceeded to chuck it into center field. I'm pretty sure it's psychological at this point. Or maybe I'm just like the Hulk?
I realize this post is probably boring to most. Baseball isn't everyone's cup'o'tea. But it's my blog, and I just happen to love that kinda tea. Mmmmm... Jeter.... pinstripes.
Any ball players out there?
