The Little Lebowski Urban Achievers got off to a good start this softball season. After some confusion at the beginning of the game about who was playing where, and the lineup, things finally calmed down and we got settled in.
We scored the first run of the game, but then fell behind 4-1. We scratched out another run on some great baserunning by our pitcher (after he failed to run out a popup that wasn’t caught, and only ended up on first), but things weren’t looking good. Going into the last inning, we were still down 4-2, when we finally woke up. Helped by a few defensive errors, we had a 12-run inning, and won the game 14-4.
Sadly, we don’t yet have our team shirts, but they should be in by next week.
I’m now 1-0 in my managerial career. And hopefully, I’ll be much better prepared next week.
