Game 2 yields a double play


The blond twin played her second softball game tonight. Daddy arrived just in time to see her catch the ball and tag third base. He looked at me and said, “She just mad a double-play all by herself.”
I admit it took a minute before I realized what he said. She caught the ball, making her first out. The second out came when she tagged the base. I was so excited that she tagged the base I didn’t realize the she caught the ball. I thought it bounced before she caught it.
We were all so excited. She came off the field beaming. We talked about it the whole way home and after we walked into the house. She was taking off her shoes when I asked, “Can I write this on the blog?” She said, “Yes. You better.”
Given the way she’s taken to softball, it probably won’t be her last double-play. Of course, the first one is the best, so we’ll talk about it for a long time.
