In the Varsity's first game of the year, we prevailed in a 2-0 game. The JV team starts next week.
There were certainly a lot of positive aspects. Defensively, our decision-making was near flawless. For example, we knew when to throw to first base in order to get the "sure out" and when to throw to second to get the "lead runner." Our pitching was solid. Our dugout presence was exceptional, since we were attentive, upbeat and supportive of each other. It certainly helped having the JV players present. Offensively, as expected, we were nervous and tentative, but seemed to relax a little after each inning. Remember, if you're going to go down, then go down fighting. Be confident.
As a reminder, we will be conducting the clinic for MVLA Girls Softball on Saturday. Please arrive at Callahan Field (on Middlefield Avenue) by 8:45. Be sure to bring your positive attitudes.
