Deadliners Midnight Softball League
The first ten o'clock game in Deadliners softball history resulted in a rousing come from behind 11-10 victory! Down 10-9 in the bottom of the final inning, the sleepy Deadliners rallied for two runs, claiming victory, and saving yours truly from losing his first start. Hooray for me! I am now 2-0 in my softball pitching career. An exciting game to be sure, but the team also had its worst attendance to date, as the late start time and chilly weather conspired to keep our regular cheering section at home. Two fine, brave souls (whom I do not know) did sit through the game. I hope they were entertained. Timmy Ocean's antics on the mound were missed (I am no replacement for that), but we endeavored through the pain and won one for the Ocean! I hope he enjoyed the fruit cup that the retirement home was serving tonight.
