Ummm, all I’m going to say about this is that we lost 18 to 1 but the girls had a lot of fun. I know you wouldn’t believe it by the score but they did. I can’t remember if Tess pitched or not – it’s all a blur.
For the second game, we lost by 1 point for a score of 7 to 6 but let’s face it, a loss is a loss is a loss, no matter how close the score was. Let me tell you how this game went:
Tess hadn’t played outfield or ANY position during any of these tournament games except for pitcher. Yes I was pissed but that’s another story. So believe me our coach got word of it and at some point Tess is in left field. She always plays right field but OK. Well, a ball was hit directly to her and……..she dropped it. Uh Oh. That was probably going to come back and haunt us. Yep, it was a tie game and time had expired so it went into International Tie Breaker. The other team quickly scored two runs before we shut them down and then we scored two runs to tie again. When they were up to bat again, we fell apart and then it was all over for us. We lost every single stinkin’ game and if Tess had caught the ball in the outfield, we probably would’ve won that game. But there were a lot of IFs and I certainly wasn’t going to say anything to her about it.
Well after the game she was in absolute tears because she knew if she had caught the ball, they would’ve (could’ve) won that game but it is what it is. I reminded her that we were now free to play with the 18s tomorrow morning but for some reason she wasn’t too happy about that.
