Summer, And The Living Is Easy

We couldn't find a replacement team. Instead seven guys from our team, plus three brothers and two neighbor kids faced thirteen adults for six innings of kid versus parent baseball on a hot summer afternoon. A mom behind the plate throwing herself in front of pitches, a boy robbing his dad of extra bases with a running catch, and the kids winning the game 88-3, if you can believe the scoreboard. Then back to one of the parents' for dinner and a couple of beers while the boys chased each other through the backyards.

What a lovely day.

I see the kids took it easy on you.

Well, this game was played with Cricket rules, so that means that the teams started with 100 points and had to score down to zero.
