We are in the Dundas Tournament this weekend. We played an awful game on Friday night, made at least 6 errors and lost the game 9-2. Saturday mornings game started a lot better, we didn’t give up a lot of runs and we cut down on the errors, it did look like a loss for us though until we were able to tie it up in the bottom of the 6th inning after time had expired. OK, so now were are sitting at 0-1-1. No chance of moving onto the semi’s today. Game three comes around and we defeat High Park by a score of 10-5, play a really good game though.
We had a pool party and bbq last evening – good time. At about 7:30pm or so, maybe later I get a call from the Convenor. We knew that we couldn’t get the wild card but there was actually an outside chance that we could win our division – with a 1-1-1 record? You’re kidding me… No, we actually won the division and we play this morning at 11:30. If we were the wild card then we would be playing at 9 and I’d be on the road now.
So, for a third tournament in a row, we play a team in the semi-final that we lost to in the opening round – Royal York in this case. If we play error free and we hit the ball, we should take them easily. Either that or we will lose like we have in the previous two tournaments by a score of 2-1 in extra innings. If that happens then I will know that the team is cursed.
Got some bad news though – one of my players can’t come today which really sucks – he has to work. He’s one of the top pitchers for the squad so I am going to have to count on some others to pick up the slack.
Anyway, wish us luck. I’ll report on the outcome later. 🙂
