Yeah, it's a whole 'nuther level.   Living near Boston, I try to calculate which hits would have cleared Fenway.   Get quite a bit.

Put up 39 runs yesterday in game one.

Up 15-0, and our second baseman botches a lazy liner which leads  to 8 runs.  Was 25-21 in the 5th, put up a fourteen spot with one out, me on deck.   Never hit 40 before, so was actually pyched to score again.  The, the other team just quit to start the second game, which we won 8-6 or something.

Also got a concussion/slight concussion (according to doc) running down a ball which I caught, but slammed my head into the ground.  Add that to the abdominal strain which completely reaggrivated itself, the knee pain from the Tough Mudder, and I'm a fucking mess.

Shoulder feels good, though.

Grape? You were right. Just 'solidified' my stance and I'm now back to cracking them like I can.  I was the last out in our last game, tho. We weren't gonna win, mind you, but not good.  Roll Eyes      Grin

Nice!  Most hitting problems are just a tweak.  I'm toying with playing baseball next year.

Assuming the hammy is good then?   You'll feel like you're going to hurt it again for awhile.....

This will sound stupid, but I highly suggest standing on a softball and rolling the bottom of you foot for about 1-2 minutes before every game.  It will loosen the posterior chain.

Will try thanks...I think about if I'm gonna hurt it again until I hit or have to chase a ball then I forget about it.

Beat on of the better teams in the league 19-16.
3-4 with a double and two singles.....best I've hit in a long time...all ropes between LC and RC.

the out I made was because we were out of HR's so I made sure to hit to right and lined it to 2B.

Jeez, Grape, if you could, why not? Be like the kid in 'Field of Dreams.' You only live once, etc. To step onto Fenway as a player!? Ach, I'd die. Anyway, if I talk any more I'm gonna bust out crying. Be the best of us, Grape.  Smiley

I've been fortunate to have played 4 games of softball in Fenway Park, as well as get 15 baseball swings from a pitching machine there.

In baseball, I one hopped the 380 in RC for a ground rule double, put one fly ball in the triangle, a few singles, grounders, fouls, wiffs made up the rest.  It was over in like 2 seconds.

Softball, one hopped the right field fence near Pesky Pole for a double, but nothing memorable aftert that - it was 2 swings max from a pitching machine, and the pitchers were often really high.   Lots of crummy hits,  fouls but a few decent liners.

Finally broke out my DeMarini The One [which I had thrown in my book room and totally forgotten about  Roll Eyes ] and gripped it too tight and snapped one off the end and barely beat a throw to first.  Went back to my F-4. What a pussy.   Grin

Team's on a 5-game winning streak. Something's obviously wrong. Middle of Summer: less players showing up: we're all playing position, and tighter? 5-5 last night. Snapped a laser over the CF's head, and when he turned to get the carom off the fence it hit the cap and went up about 20' and oh-so-slowly passed out of the range of his glove. I was past 2nd when he turned around, glove on the ground.

3-4 with 3 singles up the middle.
chased a long fly ball down in right center...then had it tip off my glove for a drop.
whole time I thought I had a nice over my left hand shoulder catch...looked into my glove and no ball Roll Eyes


...we were killing the other team so the ump started calling everything strikes to get the game over...ended up fouling out cuz I swung at a head high pitch...now I owe a case for next week!

Nice.

Saw a Demarini The One in a bag the other day.  When I saw it, i actually thought "oh, that's the bat Chimps has".   Stupid fucking internet.
