A Perfect Start

Stumpy’s team, “The Texans”, opened their season on March 13 and 14 in a tournament in Georgetown, Texas, with a 6 and 0 record and a championship! In the 6 games, we scored over 20 runs 4 times and our closest game was 16 to 7!

In this picture, everything, the ball, “Smiley” the opposing catcher, Juan, the first base coach and the umpire’s back came out fine. But, poor Stumpy was blocked out as he drove a sharp single into right field, plating 2 runs! In Senior Softball, the umps are supposed to stand behind the catcher!

Our team was very good in Georgetown! Last year we were “so-so”, but this year, after picking up some new men and filling some key spots we are excited and the Georgetown tournament supports our excitement.

All up and down the order we pounded the ball, and in all but one game, held our errors to less than 3. With so much “hitting” in slow pitch softball, fielders get a lot of hard chances and to play almost error free ball is exceptional!

The next stop is Irving the last of this month and we expect another championship!
