Swinging For the Fences

Katie's coach was good enough to finance a round of batting practice at the local batting cages today, so Katie and I headed over to see what she could do. With some practice, she smacked the heck out of the ball, including one that hit the roof of the building that held the pitching machines.

Katie wanted to see me take a few swings, so I borrowed a longer bat and stepped into one of the slow pitch softball cages where I mashed a few balls. I had thought that the adjustment on my contacts would be a problem, since my lead eye is adjusted for close vision, but apparently not.

Katie's team has its playoff game on Thursday night. If they win, they play again on Friday.

Wish them luck!
