Apparently when you haven't played Softball in three years and then you play two games back to back, you get this thing called soreness. And let me tell ya, it's a bitch!
Yesterday afternoon I got an email from a co-worker asking me if I would be interested in playing Softball that night. They were short a few girls(coed team) and they had to have enough girls to play so that they didn't have to sit guys. So I said sure.
I got to the park around 7:30. It was freezing cold and it was raining. Awesome! Another co-worker and I started warming up. Finally it was time to play.
The first game I played 2nd base which isn't normal for me. I am usually put in the outfield or catching. I actually did pretty well at it. It was interesting that is for sure. And the one time I did bat, I had a nice single to the short stop area. I couldn't believe I even hit the ball, but even more I couldn't believe that I hit it as far as I did. This isn't the norm for me. We ended up only playing 3 innings of that game because of the 20 run rule. Yeah, we lost horribly, haha!
The second game they put me at 1st base. Again, not a position I am used to. I actually did pretty good with it too. I was pretty impressed with myself. And this game I got to bat three times and got on base two of three times. But I hit the ball every single time. I just wasn't quick enough to get on 1st for one of them, haha! We lost this game too, but not as badly. Only by five runs.
It was actually a lot of fun to get out there and play again. Hopefully I can do it again sometime. And hopefully next time I won't be so damn sore the next morning. OMFG I can barely walk today. My legs hurt so bad. No pain no gain though, right?!
