High Point - Winning!!!
That was the best I've seen the Wolves play in a long time and most importantly of all, we held it together and didn't collapse under the pressure, in fact I would say that our performance actually got stronger. We knew that we were near victory and were determined not to lose it. After a shaky warm up first couple of innings, our fielding was amazing and we held the Raiders well. Our batting and running performances were also good and we proved what a difference a bit of hustling can do to our score line.
Some of the highlights (as recorded on the back of an envelope):
- Kevin making his home runs and spilling blood for the team.
- Julian's cool pitching and death defying base running.
- Kate's outs at home plate.
- Gareth's diving catch.
- Lucy almost making the fly ball catch and missing but recovering so quickly that she got the ball to 3rd and made the out anyway.
- Matthew's "COME ON WOLVES" from the sidelines.
- Moe nearly choking on a cigarette with the excitement.
What other ones have I missed? There were so many!MVP went to Kevin who was duly presented with a celebratory packet of ready salted.
