Ridge View Baseball Scrimmages
February 11, 2008

Just this last week, we had two scrimmages-one against South Point and the other York High.  We beat South Point, but lost to York.  I didn't start either of the games because all I play is 1st base and pitcher.  They already have a 1st baseman that they've had for 3 years plus this is my first year on varsity. 
I eventually played a couple innings each game at 1st base.  I only got one play though.  It was a routine grounder to 3rd, thrown to 1st, I executed with perfection.  I batted once in each game.  1st time, I struck out swinging; 2nd time, I hit a line drive to the outfield-to bad it was straight to the centerfielder-I was out. 
I have high hopes for this upcoming season, now if only I could actually start a game.  Wish me luck and hopefully I can get a chance to prove myself to the coaches.
