7 inning games

I hate 7 inning games.  They make mediocre pitching seem great.  You see teams start pressing in their 2nd at bat if they are down by a couple.  7 inning games are for kids.  All mens leagues should…Continue

Playing in Fall River @ Lafayette Park.

Awful field.  The infield is choppy and the cut outs are huge making it very hard to figure out where to be playing.  Lights are low and dim, shining in the wrong spots.  And when in the field, picking the ball up off the bat can be really tough because of the concrete bleachers that run all the way around the backstop.  But hey, you get what you pay for.

First AB

I felt like when I stepped in that the mound wasnt…

My At Bats Each and Every One

Posted on May 10, 2012 at 10:09am 0 Comments

I decided to blog all my at bats this year.  Pitch by pitch...  I dont know if anyone will read this or even enjoy it for that matter.  But either way here it goes.  

I am a 27 year old Amateur player.  I am a lot different than most amateur players.  I work my day job to play at night.  I work at the game so hard, I wish I had a different slate or an opportunity to get paid for my dedication.  But there isnt.  I play in 3 leagues in the Rhode Island area.  The first priority is…

no - the roller ball technology can't handle our scoring app - needs to be touch screen - by this time next season we will have a scoring app on every touch screen smart phone available.

current apps - PC, Windows Mobile 6.0 or greater, iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad

let me know if you have any events coming up and want a trial set up.
