First game(s) of the season last night, ....and .....my first Varsity game Pretty darn smooth all in all, 1:50 min 7 inning game. I could tell it was game one as the pitch tracking wasn't the greatest, but all in all I felt pretty comfortable. In Michigan, only Varsity does lineups, etc (JV just goes 'by the book'), so that was pretty fun logging changes, pinch runners, etc. I did have an issue though, and I think it should be a lesson; 1 and 2 count with 2 outs .....all of the sudden my CP feels strange, loose on the right side, "crap, my strap must looped through" .....next pitch, ball 2 ....another pitch and he strikes out swinging. I run to the HT bench and whip things off to try and get the strap fixed to no avail, I quickly get my partners attention and send him to the SUV for my 'back-up' CP!! WHEW!! I USUALLY don't, but yesterday, I brought both CPs .... And, ...in game 2, ....I got to call a balk on a double set! Scored a run also .... EZ-PeeZee! I also had to explain to the visiting coach that R1 was NOT out of the baseline, and had to have the "his baseline NOT THE baseline" discussion. I'm not sure he liked it too much, but I think he believed me ....oh well, it is what it is Anyhow, Varsity isn't really a big deal because I've done U18 stuff before, but just that it was a MSHAA Varsity ball game made it somewhat "official"? Whatever,...that's that! Varsity belt notched!
