Well after one rainout, losing our game two pitcher during BP and starting two players who hadn’t practiced with us all year, the OCLC CC Co-Ed Softball team marched into the 2004 Tourniment with one goal: Have Fun.
Game One vs. IBM
We win 7-0 thanks to their forfit. My fear was their relaity, not enough women players.

Game Two vs. Chemical Abstract Services

Notes: Pete Insabella, while throwing BP to the last batter in the rotation, reached for a ground ball with his throwing arm and pulled a bicept thus knocking him out of the event.

CAS is lead by a guy who takes his softball too seriously, which is sad given he’s not that good. We played them tight until the thrid when we just couldn’t make a play. We kicked the ball all over the field. Add the fact they had a few women who have played before and we got run ruled.

Game Three vs. Safelite
1. Scott Meck SS
2. Carol Miller 1B
3. Bruce Moore LF
4. Lesley Foster 2B
5. Zimmer / Leslie (3rd Inning) P
6. Julie Presas C
7. David Coleman RF Center
8. Muriel Hippeau RF
9. Andrea Steward LF Center
10. Susan Loesch 3B

Notes:
How did SafeLite get in the losers braket? Thrid inning I took the rock from Zimmy and got pounded. Couldn’t find the plate and when I did, the ball got launched. Bruce made a sweet catch in left to save a home run but that and the fact we didn’t get shut out were the only highlights.
