Did I ever tell y’all that I started a softball team? No? Well shame on me! It started last year, and we were pretty terrible. 7 teams in our division, and we ended up in 5th place. juuuuust missed the playoffs.
I’m so sporty:
So last year, Ares Sportswear sort of sponsored us, by giving us a sort of discount on uniforms. I’ll admit, we look pretty sharp. Jim Wallace actually sponsored the team by paying the entrance fee. Thanks Jim!
Here he is:
Dang, he’s a rockstar. So this year, we decided that we didn’t want to be an “ares” team, especially since more than half of the players didn’t even work there. So I paid up front, and then we got a bar to sponsor us. WAY BETTER. We play to go to the bar afterward anyway, am I right?
haha. So, after every game, we head over to Coaches off of Bethel and Godown roads. They Have TRIVIA ON WEDNESDAYS. You know I love trivia. Oh, you didn’t know that? well.. I do. THey give prizes to first, second, and third place winners. Usually a GC to the bar itself. This season, we’ve won $80 in GC and $50 in CASH. we’re gonna throw and end of the year party at Coaches!
SO, I vow to take some pictures of THIS season today. Our team is so much better this year, we’ve all had a little experience, we work better together, and we’ve got some awesome new players. Our record isn’t much better yet, but it feels better. and I think that’s half the battle.
