The last week in the fall league has been a blast for the team. We have not played the best of the season, but are around 500 in the last 6 games. The fun part of the last week was going to watch the Rising Stars Game at our home field. A few of our teammates were on the team, so it was nice to see them show their skills in the the game. The game itself was a good game . . . it was 2-2 going into the bottom of the ninth. it had been a pitchers dual the whole game from strike outs to 101 mph fast balls. We had seen it all. In the bottom of the ninth it was 2-2 and our side hit a walk off to win the game 3-2. That is the way an all-star game should end.
The last week we got to do a few different things that I enjoyed. I am a big hunter and with hunting season starting I have gone Bass Pro Shop and Cabella’s on my day off looking at different things for the upcoming hunts. I was able to experience the Scottsdale Fashion Square which is the best mall in the area. Since I was not pitching in the road games, I did not travel and had Tuesday and Thursday off. So it has been a relaxing week with the league starting to wind down.
The only problem I have come across is that last Tuesday I strained my oblique. I have never been injured, and I have never missed a game, so this was a new experience for me. It is a feeling that I don’t like. They made sure I didn’t throw for a week, and it is all healed. However, instead of trying to get back out there it is best to call it an early off season and head home. So that makes this my last post.
This Fall League was a blast. I got to meet a lot of great players and play some great baseball. It is no fun to not be able to finish up with the team, but I know they will do great. I want to thank everyone who has kept up with the blog and supported the Rafters this Fall league.
