Play Ball!!!

Now, I don't think the title of this post is like my other ones...

You see, the other titles won't give you a clear idea of what you're about to read... But not this... I can't think of any other fitting title but the umpire's famous line:

"Play Baaaaaaall!!!"

Last May 5 was my very first, and official, amateur baseball game played in my entire life. Though I was present during the opening day game, I was not inserted in the lineup (for reasons you'll discover later... hahaha...).

Now playing... Right Field... # 58...

It's so damn hot in the middle of the day...

If not for the love of the game, the love for the Yankees and keeping my Lolo's legacy alive, I wouldn't have put my entire self into such a disgrace...

I suck playing this game. Well, yeah. I had no prior competitive experience before this. I played LF for 3 full innings. Was charged E9 twice, meaning Error on #9 position. I lost two simple flyballs, miscalculation of the ball's trajectory. I struck out looking on a 3-2 full count on my first and only at-bat.

Well, there you go. I hope to play one more game before the season ends. And I promise to be physically fit by next season, and competitive enough too. =)

Special thanks to Loren and Mariel for the pics and taking their time out in making the "surprise" appearance during our game. As if hindi ko nahalata Yel. =)
