365 Photos Day 136
Just another day watching the Kid play softball. This is my normal view...down the 1st or 3rd baseline.
This was her only at bat today, where she was called out on a 2-1 count after she fouled a ball straight back over the backstop because she "was out of the batter's box". I have that in quotations because that's not what REALLY happened.
What really happened is that in the previous inning, her coach was arguing with the home plate umpire. There was no clearly marked batter's box, but the Kid is very good about knowing where the lines should be (she should be, considering she's a catcher), and knows enough to stay within the box.
So, the coach had ticked off the ump (never a good idea), who then took it out on the next few batters.
There's 2 more regular season games tomorrow, and then a playoff game on Friday. I don't know how far they'll get, but I'd like it to be time for Summer softball. Now would be good.
