Monday noon baseball: Chiefs win 1-0

Today was a noon game; this time, it wasn’t one of those “school/daycare” type of games. So the crowd was down, though there were a ton of “seniors” there.

I was there too, wearing the free shirt that they passed out yesterday.

This time, the Chiefs won a tense pitcher’s duel 1-0, getting their lone run in the first inning when a runner scored off of an “off the wall” triple. That was it. Later, the Chiefs were “robbed” of a run when, with two outs and runners on 1’st and 3’rd, a hard line drive which was destined for the outfield hit the runner running between first and second, thereby causing the 3’rd out.

There were some tense moments though. In the 5’th inning, 5he starter, who pitched well, loaded the bases by walking one batter and hitting 2 other batters. But a short ground ball was fielded by the catcher who made the force out at home. Then in the 9’th, the lead off batter was hit by a pitch then, instead of bunting, the second batter hit into a double play. But then a hit and an infield hit made things interesting. But a ground out force out at 3’rd ended the game.

The Chiefs starter allowed 2 of the 7 hits in 5 innings, walked one and hit a couple of batters. Much better pitching than yesterday!


The had old, wheelchair bound people throw out the first pitch. Needless to say, neither old man threw it much past the mound. Some clapped. I could not.

"First pitch". I had mixed reactions to "cheering".

These are men, not kids. I can see encouraging a kid to keep trying. But, well, there is fine line between being realistic about one’s abilities and being condescending.

Workout notes: Lovely 2 mile walk after the game; I walked to the Riverplex parking lot from the stadium and back.

Before the game: weights: (felt bloated and my left middle finger is sore from Saturday (?)

usual PT, pull ups (5 sets of 10..trouble with the “palms facing each other grip”, bench: 10 x 135, 4 x 185, 8 x 170, decline: 7 x 170, incline: 10 x 135, military: 10 x 50, 10 x 45 (thick dumbbells), 10 x 180 machine, rows 3 sets of 10 x 110. Usual abs, and yes, plank still sucks (2:30).
