Game 10

  • Jan 26, 2013 · 12:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

My plan is to schedule this game to make life easier for the next Organizer -- should one step up and take the leadership role -- while I step down in time for the next Organizer to rent the field and take control of the group.

If not enough members RSVP for this game, then maybe it's a signal that people want to take a break from softball during these cold, rainy months.

    How do people feel about going out for a beer and bite after the next game?

    Thanks for keeping this group classy, Kelly

    Thanks Kelly - its great to be back, and I really love the energy everyone brought to the game. Steve, you also really stood out for me with your fun 'tude, and Kelly, I just have to acknowledge you for the grace with which you handled the Dave Cruz comments. Way to keep our group classy! Looking forward to the next game.

    Shout out to Josh. It's great to have you back after the injury. Looks like you haven't missed a beat - still got the power in that swing!

    It was nice meeting everyone. I had a great time.
    I'm guessing that there was some sort of drama that started before I joined the group. I wouldn't mind a scrimmage, but not with that guy.
    You handled that very well, Kelly.

    1 · January 28, 2013

    • Kelly H

      Thanks Zach, it was great meeting you too. You have a lot to live up to after that massive hit! I think it would be fun to play another group too. I agree, that his wasn't the right fit.

      January 28, 2013

  • Mike

    also, thanks for everyone's concern. sore from the leg cramps, but after some ice, the left leg is fine. God bless.

      Glad your leg is fine. Hopefully no injuries next game. Way to hang in there!

      Yeah, glad to hear you're OK Mike, although Mili did a great job pinch running ;)

    Great pictures Kelly! You caught me texting during game time...hahaha so embarrassing! :)

    January 27, 2013

    • Annie

      Haha oh I wasn't really embarrassed....just making fun of myself for texting. The ocean did look cool in the background!

    Ok, I've removed David Cruz. I should have done this earlier, but I like the democratic nature of this group including an open dialogue between members. Censoring him seemed counter productive to that end, but he did cross the line with his insults. I didn't take it personally, but it altered the calm and friendly vibe that, for me, is part of the enjoyment of this group. I posted this in the Game 10 meetup so we can move forward without this unpleasantness contaminating game 11. Let's play ball!

      I just read over the messages. I fully support this decision.

      Thanks, Kelly, for taking over what David started!!

    Beautiful day, friendly people, fun game. Great catch Mira & Nicholas :)

    January 26, 2013

    • Nicholas W.

      Thank you. Yep great catch Mira! Who knows what would happen to the game if you were not able to catch the ball :P

      January 26, 2013

    • Kelly H

      Yes, a lot of good plays - thanks for the reminder Dawn. I had fun too!

      January 27, 2013

  • Kelly H

    I've opened a poll with regards to David Cruz proposal to scrimmage with his meetup group. Please vote if you have an opinioon

    January 26, 2013

    • Mira

      I voted yes because any reason to play softball is a good one! But I also thought some response to the posting was necessary.

      1 · January 27, 2013

    • Kelly H

      Thanks for voting Mira. I'm sure David was posting out of his enthusiasm for the game as well. I hope the tone can be more gentle as the discussion continues.

      January 27, 2013

  • Mira

    Great game everyone. I look forward to the next one! Hope to see you soon.

    January 27, 2013

  • Nicholas W.

    Nice photos Kelly! I didn't know the winning team were Kaepernicking haha!

    January 26, 2013

    • Kelly H

      Thanks Nicholas. Yeah, they were pretty happy with themselves too :). Framing was a little off on the full group photo; I almost cut out John Power! I'll do better next time, but the shot of Varun power hitting was great if I say so myself.

    had a blast

    January 26, 2013

  • Kelly H

    Great to see everyone at the game today. Pretty good turnout, but still quite a few no-shows. The weather was great, and we had a good game, albeit a little one-sided. Even Andrew couldn't pull team Chris out of our slump, although Zack had a powerful inside the park homer that scored 3 runs.

    Nice catch of a drifting high ball to left center by Mira! Good game John Power team! 16 to 8 final score.

    Soo sorry guys but they called me at work for emergency. It's chaotic here. I can't make it. Next game for sure.

    January 26, 2013

      Work before softball? Your priorities are upside down! ;-) Been there - see you next time.

    any chance of a Sunday meetup?

    January 25, 2013

    • Kelly H

      We started out on Sundays, but moved to Saturdays. It was a group decision, and I think we're generally happy with that. It is better for me personally, but as always, I'm open to suggestions.

    I kind of like the schoolyard pick (even if I'm picked last, I'm there to learn & practice so it doesn't bother me) I think it results in more balanced teams

    January 22, 2013

    • Kelly H

      Sorry to hear that Craig. David suggested Holly Circle field next time, so I hope you can make that.

      January 25, 2013

    • Craig E.

      Let me check out the conditions of the field and the size. I've always wanted to play there. There is a fence in the outfield and it may be too short. Although it would be cool to hit an authentic "over the wall" homerun!!

      January 25, 2013

  • Kelly H

    Ok, West Sunset Diamond 2 from 1-3pm. It's the lower field this time. I'll be there at 12:30.

      I no longer have a +1 for tomorrow. If anyone wants the spot... I am coming though

      January 25, 2013

  • Kelly H

    Looking good for Saturday - 20% chance of rain. I'll reserve tomorrow if the forecast doesn't change; some newscasts were predicting rain Saturday.

    What do you think about random teams as suggested by Natasha? Throw our gloves in and separate them into two piles. Teams could then choose a captain for batting order etc.

    Any suggestions welcome.

    January 22, 2013

    • Mike

      clearly, shirt vs skins isn't going to work

      1 · January 22, 2013

    • Mira

      I like Natasha's idea. (I'm probably still traumatized by being the very last person picked every time in elementary school!)

      January 22, 2013

  • Kelly H

    changed the end time (not a 24 hour game:). thanks Annie

    January 18, 2013

  • Kelly H

    Hi, If we don't have 20 RSVPs by end of day, I'll postpone this game to next week.

    January 17, 2013

    • Mike

      at least for me, next week does actually work better

      January 18, 2013

    • Kelly H

      Yeah, maybe better for a few people. I hope so.

      January 18, 2013

  • Kelly H

    Hi, I've postponed this game to next week. Too bad, it's going to be perfect weather.

    I hope we can get 20 players signed up by next week. Thanks,
    Kelly

    January 18, 2013

  • Annie

    I plan on continuing to come to games but I'm out of town this weekend! I'm sorry! I hope to make the next game! :)

    January 16, 2013

  • Kelly H

    Getting close to 18. I'd like to reserve by tomorrow at the latest. Come on out and play!

    January 16, 2013

    • Mira

      Kelly - Thanks for taking on the organizer role! If I can help in any way, email me through Meetup.

      January 16, 2013

    • Kelly H

      Thanks Mira!

      January 16, 2013

  • Craig E.

    Where is everyone??!! Come on guys...what do you have better to do this Saturday? Sign up so we can have a game!

    1 · January 15, 2013

  • Kelly H

    Looks like a low turnout so far. The weather should be nice. I'll wait until we have 18 to reserve the field. Not counting David, there are currently 12 attending...

    January 15, 2013
