The first two weeks of my new career in baseball is in the books. This past weekend capped off our first seven games of the season, which includes two weekend series and one other league game. Sadly, the season hasn’t started off as expected. We are currently 1-6. On a more positive side, we’ve been slowly getting better as a team. We kept our opponents to a lower score and we’ve been hitting a bit more, and now we just need to string some together.
The first weekend was rough. We lost all three games in the series to Denison University from Ohio. Next, we faced Taylor University which was also rough; we lost that game in really only one inning. This past weekend we played DePauw University from Greencastle, Indiana. The first game was another loss, but thankfully we won the second game, which was the first win of the season. Finally, we lost the third game of the weekend. After going from getting beaten badly two weekends ago to winning a game, it’s a major jump forward for us. Conference games are where wins really count; the more we win in conference play, the better chance we have at extending our season into conference play.
Time to brag a little bit. My mom took pictures during the two weekend games and I want to show them and my team off. So, to end this post will be pictures she took of me, the team, and individual players. Hope you enjoy them!
