The accommodations were nice and the sea food was excellent, but the softball left much to be desired. Stumpy, managing the team last week, and his Texans left too many men on base, committed several very, key errors, hence the results weren’t good in Pensacola. Finishing third behind the Southeastern 70’s, who beat the Georgia Classics 9-7 to win the tournament, Georgia coming in second, The Texans didn’t get the opportune hits, loosing to Georgia 11-10 twice and Southeastern once, 16-11. Errors were our bane and caused over half the runs we gave up to be unearned!
Georgia and Southeast are two very good teams, so are we, but eliminate the miscues, or we get a couple of hits at the right time, the story would be much different! But last week’s games are history and we have to look ahead to our next tournament either in Dallas or Baton Rouge, however, who knows how these games will turn out, since we play with a round bat, a round ball, on a square field! We’re just blessed to still be playing at our age!
