It’s almost the first long weekend of the summer. Well, summer isn’t really here as yet but May 24 is traditionally the start of summer. It’s cold here today, 10C and supposed to rain later on in the day, but the weather for the weekend is supposed to be great, low 20’s – I will take it.
Tomorrow, the offices close early so I am done early which will be nice – bonus on long weekends that we have. I am going to one of those Brazilian steakhouses for dinner tomorrow so I will be on meat overload for sure. I have a double-header on both Saturday and Sunday and then we have our last board meeting for Babe Ruth on Monday, we break over the summer. Uniforms and umpiring stuff have been given out to everyone, it went fairly well.
I umpired last night in what I was expecting to be an excellent ball game between the top two AAA Babe Ruth teams. A total of 8 runs were scored in the first inning so it was an interesting start. In the bottom of the 7th, the home team was down by 5 runs so it looked like it would be over but they managed to tie it up and won in the bottom of the 8th on a number of errors from the visiting team. So, what looked like a good game at the start turned into a 2 hour, 40 minute, error-filled ball game. Oh well, at least it didn’t rain.
Enjoy your long weekend.
