Co-Ed Softball in Owatonna, Minnesota is serious business...well mostly. My team plays hard but also has a ton of fun. We joke around, tease our teammates and even our competitors.
Here's some pics from one of our games this summer.
This is Courtney. She's played on our team for quite awhile. Her dad helps sponsor the team too. :)
P.s. this was definitely a hit.
This is Danelle. She joined our team this year. This was a nice hard grounder.
This is Christles, my brother aka "The Blowhole". I gave him that nickname because he can't keep his trap shut. LOL The back of his shirt says "The Big Show". That should tell you something about him. :) He's our backup pitcher tonight but normally he plays a mean left-center.
This is Nicky, Nick or Nicholas Matthew (Mom calls him this.) He plays short-stop normally.
I'm pretty sure he missed this ball. Ah well. Jason out in left got it and threw it back in.
Wait...these aren't players. This is Karen and Ashton. My brother's girlfriend and my nephew. They come to watch quite a bit. Ashton likes hanging out in the dugout trying to sneak out onto the field.
This is Tara getting a runner out at first. Nice throw Chrissy.
"Hey Squirt-o, where do you think you're going? LOL"
This cutie love his Daddy. A lot. He tries to sneak out onto the field to see him.
This is Tara, my cousin, catching an infield fly. Good job!
This is Sam, a friend of the family, getting a nice hit and making it to first.
Kimmie warming up. See the ball. Hit the ball. See the ball. Hit the ball.
This play was hilarious. Sam trucked it over to third and the outfielder threw the ball into the 3rd basemen right as Sam got to the base. She ducked right under the tag. SAFE!
This is Kimmie, my little sister getting a nice hit. She's got a nice swing.
This is my brother Chris at bat. You can see the ball sailing out of the picture in the upper left-hand corner. He likes to either hit pop ups or line drives. Like a penny machine you never know what you're gonna get.
Somebody batted my brother Nick in. Woohoo! Honestly he probably just kept running from second because he's fast and they never throw him out.
This is my cousin Tara, getting a hit. She used to play fastpitch softball and now she plays slowpitch for us. That makes my mother very happy.
Nick again. The concentration. It looks like he's going to chew off his lip or something. LOL
Aaaaaand. He got it. Notice the yellow ball in his hand? Yep. He snagged it.
This is Traci and Al. Al is a bit of a goofball. He's a friend of the family. Traci is my cousin and usually plays catcher for us but...
Both her and our other Al injured their feet in the same week so they were warming the bench up for us. Technically the bench is already warm because it's freakin' hot out but whatever. I have to use the old baseball terms. :)
Here's Chris throwing someone out at first.
That's all I've got. I didn't get pictures of everyone....because it's hard to get the people in front and behind you when batting but I did my best.
Have a great day!
