May 16, 17, 07:37 PM #4CovCath 1st run scored in the 2nd innings (no offense to NCC and I will not name players) but Senior Ben Gerdes who usually CR or PR and PH started today. Ben swung and hit the ball straight down and it bounced up high around the plate. Ben took off and an NCC player threw it over the head of an another NCC player. Ben kept running and while heading to second, another NCC player threw the ball nowhere near an NCC player and the ball went all the to the 3rd base foul line no where near 3rd base. Ben kept running and wound up scoring a run (unearned) on a ball that didn't travel much more than two or three feet. Kids all mobbed Ben good naturally and insisted on it being an HR. Of course, it wasn't but after Schaefer hit his Grand Slam HR in the bottom of the sixth, they were comparing HR distances. It was indeed a great day for our CovCath Seniors.
I had no intention of making fun of any NCC player but wanted Senior Ben Gerdes to get some love!
