A Fine Play
Submitted By Jamie Bond on Wednesday, July 24, 2013
No, this was not another rendition of Anne of Green Gables, but a display of pure athletic talent by our Rivercats #2 squad.  And it wasn't just one play.

The #2 Rookies had lost 9 games in a row this year.  They didn't get down and worked very hard at practices and at games and continued to have a lot of fun. Then they won a squeaker a couple of weeks ago, then lost big, then won pretty handily last week.

So, going into Strathroy last night I had to wonder what the heck these little hooligans had in store for us.  The team we were facing has lost two games all year and won their last 4 games by more than 15 runs each. Oooh.

Well, let me tell you something.....I still can stop thinking about how fantastic these little all stars played:
- Tessa - ran down a ball in the outfield and continued her terrific swinging at the plate
- Abbey - made a terrific throw from the outfield all the way to second base just like she has been taught
- Lily - got another fantastic hit and played great behind the plate
- Josh - continued his torrid hitting and got another double to drive in a run
- Jack - made great throws in the field and got another great hit
- Andrew - made two terrific outs at third base and another solid hit
- Grant - continued his steady hitting with another solid single
- Evelyn - Got another great hit tonight and made some solid throws from right field
- Blake - scooped up a couple of grounders and made an out at third
- Jordan - got 2 great hits and ran down a player at the plate to stop a run from scoring
- Cam J - got a couple of fantastic hits, scooped up a hot grounder, and made 3 more outs at first base. WOW
- Ethan - our Hustle and Heart award winner, got a single, a double, he slid, he covered his team mates, caught a hot grounder, and he snagged a hot line drive at short (and almost doubled up a very eager baserunner).  Quite a game.  CONGRATS ETHAN.

The whole team played such a terrific game that they were able to come away with a 5-3 win.  It was unbelievable really.  But a true testament to what hard work and having fun can do for you.  NICE JOB RIVERCATS #2!!!!

    I looked at the score book for our first game of the year and counted up the strike outs for the other team.  They had 14.....which means we only made one out during the whole entire game.

    After our 4th game on Tuesday night against Strathroy #2, I thought to myself how our mighty Rivercats #2 club are really starting to mold into terrific little baseball players.
