Wednesday, July 21, 2010: Victory!

After a long and grueling season, Nathan's team won the league tournament tonight by winning both games they played. Here's the play by play:

Nathan's team down 5-1 in the 7th inning. Nathan's team already scored 2 runs when Nathan comes to the plate with one man on 2nd and one on 3rd. 2 outs. They call a time out to discuss what to pitch to Nathan (he has a reputation for being one of the league's top hitters). didn't matter. Nathan crushed a single that scored 2 runs!! He tied the game. He tied the game. The crowd went crazy. Nathan's team went on to score one more run to take the lead (Nathan was later called out at home for the 3rd out on a very close call - I think he was safe...I was screaming from the bleachers in right field "HE MISSED THE TAG, HE MISSED THE TAG!"). His team held on for the one run victory.

In the championship game his team went on to easily handle their opponent and cruised to the victory, at one point leading 9-1. Jumping, screaming and lots of adolescent sweaty smelling boys. Victory!

The part about Nathan's game is true. Some of the other details may have been slightly embellished/overstated/exaggerated and the writer claims no responsibility for any misrepresentation of the facts. Some names have been changed to protect the innocent.
