The First Practice Game - Fall 2011

There are lots of new faces on THE TEAM. They are talented and athletic faces too. Well, if you can have an athletic face. The important thing is that they have athletic arms and legs and hands to go with their athletic kissers.

THE TEAM beat The Fockers 17-16 by batting .615 with two triples and three home runs. The other encouraging detail is that THE TEAM had zero strikeouts. OK there was one but that was by a player who recently had surgery and was not supposed to play so I say we give a free pass on that and go with zero Ks.

There has been no effort to come up with what the mythical award will be for outstanding effort in a game. The last time I asked for suggestions I received exactly zero so...

Jad went 5 for 5 in her debut for THE TEAM. Amy went 2 for 4 with an RBI. Let's give them both the "Damn Dirty Hippy" Award.

Chris went 3 for 5 with a triple and 4 RBIs but the "Damn Dirty Hippy" Award has to go to Lou who went 4 for 4 with 3 Home Runs including two grand slams for a total of 9 RBIs.

It was a great effort by everyone. We are all Damn Dirty Hippies.

I'm liking what I see with this "The Team 2.0". If we can eliminate/cut down on errors, keep hitting strong, and play smart we can get that trophy!

I agree Lou. We have a good team. Frustrated I couldn't play but glad I was on the side line to watch those grand slams, excellent hits and great defense. We are trophy bound!
