Softball and the Old Lineup Shuffle 
23rd-Sep-2017 10:06 pm
Katie's team manager is out of town this weekend, so the rest of the inmates have been left to run the asylum. :) She left us a draft lineup, which I have now shuffled to cover for the fact that one of the girls who had been slated to catch has some cuts on her knees which would make catching less than a good experience. Hopefully, everyone will be ok with the changes, which I just sent out via text message.

It is going to be brutally hot tomorrow. Gretchen is bringing extra water and ice. I've bought a pack of salty snacks to keep the girls running.

We'll see how it goes.

Don't give hot kids ice-cold water. IME, it gives them tummy-aches. Cool water first, *then* ice-cold. The band rookies always wanted cold water the first time (some of them were entirely unused to being active outside in the hear of summer), but they soon learned that it was a bad idea.
