It is Wednesday here at camp and it is truly hump day around here as today is deemed as a "day off". We only play one game and the start time is 9:45. It was brought up to my attention by my coach Frank Viola that I will be on the mound.
Today's game is a big game, we are 2-2 and if we get to 4 wins we should be able to sneak into the top four -- we have 8 teams here at camp and Friday is playoffs where they matchup the top 4 teams vs. the bottom four. Being in the top four gets you the opportunity to play in the upper division bracket and the Noon Championship game on Saturday. I have been there twice and looking for the third opportunity.
Our team is coming together and the hitting is getting warmer. We have a good squad and at this time we are relatively healthy -- I think we should be able to go 2-1 the rest of the way and secure a top 4 finish -- we will see if that happens. Regardless we are having a good time. I have always said this - baseball is a funny game and any team can win a game (mostly because of pitching).
Let's see if I can grab a victory today to get us to 3-2. Where is that trainer......
