Today was the first day of the playoffs for the Cal Ripken World Series. Four games were scheduled and my game at 1230 went ahead without any issues and was a damn good ball game. After that, the skies opened up dumping massive amounts of rain on us and an amazing light and thunder show. We lost the middle two games but got the 8pm game in.
We’ll make up the missed games tomorrow morning and get in the regularly scheduled games to get back on schedule.
I have 2 games tomorrow, 3pm and 530pm, on the bases for both.
The International Championship is Friday, I believe and I think I’m scheduled for it. I’d like to watch one of Team Canada’s games if I can, they are in the Iron Bracket and I am hopeful that they’ll do well.
The World Championship is Saturday. As this is my first World Series, I don’t expect to be scheduled for it, so it’ll be nice to just watch.
I’m looking forward to flying back to Calgary on Sunday afternoon and getting back into a normal routine.
