Off to play my first softball game of the season

I’m off to play my first softball game of the season, and the first game in a few years where I am not team captain. The current captains have me playing shortstop and batting 3rd in the lineup. For kicks, I’m keeping track of my personal stats this year, in particular, defense. Those interested can find out how I did tonight after the game.

The weather is pretty nice and the game is out on the National Mall at the corner of 4th and Jefferson, just in case anyone wanted to come around and watch. Look for the team in the purple shirts.
