The Fall Adult Kickball League in Lakewood, is played on clean, well lit, softball fields. Naturally many of the Ballbangers were a little nervous since it has that stadium presence, many more supporters and random spectators.
That did not stop the team from being on top of their game as we came away with a 12-5 win to open the Fall season. We stayed focused and took advantage of key opportunities when the score was close.
Harvey Milk had an inside the park home run, Lee Harvey had a big double. Our new player, Harvey One did well with key stops at 3rd base and great throws to second.
We did well in the brief off season, acquiring some new talent. 2 new ladies with great kicking and defensive skills, and 4 new guys, one missing the opening game.
We will have our hands full next week, but let’s keep the momentum going. Even though it’s our first Fall win, it feels like a championship win for the team that stumbled through the summer season.
