Watch out for the bat

Recommended Posts

Had plate in a fall ball babe ruth senior game last night. R1, BR gets a hold of one to left center and I start rotating to 3B. CF gets toasted, so I say "goin back home" and start walking backwards, keeping an eye on the play.

I hear the catcher saying "heads up ... heads up ... heads up" and I'm thinking "yeah, I know where the ball's at" when I step on the bat, and it's like being on a roller in the dirt and I fall on my arse.

I spin on a knee, put the mask hand down and stand up ... and fall again because I didn't get my feet under me squarely.

After the inning, I ask the crowd if anyone has video. I've got friends that would pay good money for it! My partner was mad because he missed it. I was embarrassed and just laughed about it, cause what else can you do?

1 Ask catcher to give better warning next time

2 Get a copy of any video.

3 All of the above.

My one friend said she'd quit her job to have more time to watch if there was one. Nobody got it. If this were 12-year-olds they'd all have moms video taping it!

I am not lying about any part of this. I wish there was video. Pretty high up Midwest Babe Ruth guy runs this complex, saw it happen and called me safe twice. I know I'm not doing this justice in describing how hilarious I had to have looked.

Had a buddy end up on his can once after fastball to mask...........Another buddy sent him a message and said, you should have jumped up, pointed and yelled "FIRST DOWN!"  Maybe you could have incorporated a "Frank Drebin" type of dance afterwards.
