    Today we played FSU. There record is 10-0-1. Our record is 5-4-1. Today I went 3-4 with a walk, stolen base, 2 RBI, and a run. I played 3rd base today. I did okay. I missed a couple grounders [​IMG] but my coach told me that I was doing great to encourage me. [​IMG] The worst part of it all is that we lost 13-12. We were winning 11-12 and a guy was trying to steal 3rd base. Andrew (one of our catchers) threw a terrible throw to me and I could not even get close to catching it and it went over my head. The left fielder came and tried to back up the play and he did not get his glove down in time so the run scored and another guy that was at first scored. [​IMG] We lost the game and we are now 5-5-1 and FSU is now 11-0-1. But we will beat them in the playoffs. We lost but I thought I had an okay baseball game today. [​IMG]

    Sorry about the loss, but that was a close game against a 10-0-1 team! And 3-4 is not bad at all!!

    Dude, you went 3-4 against a quality team. You aren't the reason they lost. Hold your head high. You did well.

    Must have been a REALLY bad throw if the right fielder had to back up third!! [​IMG] Well done at the plate, Maxx.

    Both my girls have out-grown fastpitch softball. Oldest one pitched and younger one played third. I miss the busy summers keeping up with them. Our "pitching lane" in the back yard is now under the chicken coop.

    Just ribbing you Maxx! [​IMG]

    You have to concentrate on the things you did well and let the other things go. My dad was always bad about that. He'd be like those 2 home runs you hit were great, but you bobbled that one grounder. Seemed like I could never do quite well enough to please him. And of course he would miss the error free games. I tried very hard not to do that to my girls.

    You must do the same. Take all the positives with you from each game, and work hard in practice to improve the rest. The better your outlook, the better your game. Sounds to me like you're doing better all the time.
