Only 8 teams made it to Saturday play in the NJ Summer Showcase and we were one of them. We squared off against the OC Batbusters - Smith from California and it was a dog fight right out of the gate all the way to the end!
In the first inning their leadoff batter reached base and I ended up tagging her out at the plate. Another runner got on the same inning but I gunned her out at 2b. From then on their coaches approached the game a little differently.
Each team had runners on throughout the game but left several stranded. We were running out of time as the home team and started the bottom of the 7th down 3-2 and I was leading off the inning. I fell in a hole early but worked the count full then sent a no-doubter over the left/centerfield fence to tie it up 3 all!
We went into ITB where they plated one and we came up short. It was heartbreaking but the close ones always are, it was anyone's game!
I caught all but 2 innings of 8 games this weekend and had several coaches come just to see me and my teammates!
