There was one out. It's coed, so the count starts 1-1. I was 1-2 when I hit the ball to the short stop. The guy running to second was out, but they missed the double play. The guy after me hit it to about the same spot, so I was easily out at second.

Later (separate at-bat), I made it to first when the guy in front of me got walked with us having two outs (guys always get two bases when walked, but the following girl can choose to take first base when it happens with two outs). With two outs, I was running on anything. I was just about to second when I saw the outfielder missed catching the ball that the guy after me hit, so I ran on to third. The next girl up to bat got a hit, which I scored on.

We played a double header tonight. We lost the first game due to some stupid mistakes, but we made up for it in the second game.

Technically that may be scored as a fielders choice... I'm embarrased that I'm not certain. I'm calling it a walk off grand slam anyway.

My batting is getting better. Base running isn't bad once I get to base. I totally throw like a girl, though. I am the catcher (because I know I suck...lol), but I can barely even throw the ball back to the pitcher. LMAO

I stand back and let it take the bounce. I'm pretty good at not letting it get by me though.

That's the way you should do it. There's absolutely no reason to squat behind the plate and catch the ball on the fly. Let the ump see where it lands and crosses. In fact, just stand behind the ump unless your pitcher wants a target.

If no batting cages, a hit away is a good alternative. Go to a park or playground and hit away.

How did I not get a hit? I hit the ball, and I made it to first base. Is that not a hit? I didn't get out until running to second when the next batter hit the ball. I'm not counting the time I scored a run as being a hit.

I'm a Royals fan, so I know more than most on this board about anemic offenses:

A hit = you're safe AND all runners forced to advance one base = safe.

While you "hit the ball," you did not record a hit.

You hit the ball and got on base.

Look at it this way, presumably when you were thrown out at 2nd, they could have thrown the runner out at 1st (and would have, if you were not on base). However, they chose to throw you out at 2nd, leaving the runner on 1st safe.

In other words, while you didn't get a hit, by making contact and forcing a play you did create a baserunner.

We have a couple girls that can't manage to do any of that - so you're a step ahead of them.

It's not a hit, but it's better than a strikeout. Gotta crawl before you can walk...

Most here play 7/3 with girls hitting 3-6-9 in the lineup. Every now and then a tourney will run a 5/5, every other, and split the field... but it's tough enough for teams to find 3 decent girls so most stay 7/3 and put a home run rule in place.

Either way it's a good time and a good way to remind people they're getting old. ROFL
