A couple of topics for this post. First of all, there is a Royal’s blog done by Chris “Disco” Hayes, and his blog is pretty much amazing. I reccomend everyone to go check it out. I recently checked it out, and there is some really good stuff on his blog, he is really funny and quite the character.
The second topic is my most recent outing. It was by far the best of the season, and probably the most comfortable that I have felt on the mound. The mechanical changes that we worked on in between starts really paid off. I was through 6 innings in 74 pitches, and ready to go back out for the 7th, but I was pinch hit for because it was a 1-1 game, and we had a scoring opportunity. Which brings me to my next point, hitting. Its really tough, and I have a lot of work to do. I looked terrrible at the plate, if I had looked a little better, they might have let me hit for myself. Either way, it was a very good outing, and a very encouraging step in my career. The fact that I was able to fix my mechanics in one outing gives me a boatload of confidence.
Ok so on to the real topic of this post. The movie A League of Their Own, a true story about war-time America where they created a women’s baseball league to replace major league baseball. In the movie there is a character by the name of Betty Spaghetti. Well today after our afternoon game in Reading, I was fortunate enough to meet the real life person that portrayed in the movie. While we were sitting on the bus waiting to leave for Harrisburg, she walked onto the bus and introduced herself. It was very cool, and a really exciting experience.
Well thats all I have for today guys and girls.
