Sorry for the lack of posting lately, it has been a little tough to find internet lately. We just got internet in our appartment the day before we left for our road trip.
Before I get into the post topic, I feel that it is necessary to mention Nick Adenhart. I didn’t know him personally, but he is part of the baseball family. This situation has really upset me, and the coverage that ESPN has done has really choked me up. It really could have been any player in that car. I have actually been through that intersection before. It was a really sad day. I think that his family should be kept in everybody’s prayers.
Ok, so on to the topic of this post. The season has officially begun, unfortunately we are 0-2. However, the games have been very competitive and could have won both of them. I threw in relief last night, just one inning. It was sort of a tune up outing so that I didn’t have an 8 or 9 day lay off without facing hitters. I got 2 quick outs via a strike out and a 5-3 groundout. Then I made a bad pitch, and a guy hit a triple. The next guy broke his bat, but got just enough of the ball to get it through the infield. The next guy grounded into a force out. The final line was 1 IP 2 H 1 ER 0 BB 1 K. Really only made that one bad pitch. It was good to get out there and face hitters though, see how the adrenaline and nerves are gonna react.
I will start on Monday in Akron, and I am really excited about it. I can’t wait to get back out there. I wanted to go back out for another inning last night, really good to feel those competitive juices flowing again. Well that’s all I have for now, I will probably post after my outing on Monday.
