Softball treat

My final exam schedule worked out so that it is very “late loaded” (first one is Saturday) so I could make some of the MVC softball tournament.

It was chilly and windy and I was..much to my embarrassment, somewhat underdressed. But I saw Illinois State beat Valpo 4-1 (and saw a home run); (final 3 innings) and then I got to watch Bradley’s 4-0 win over Indiana State, which had the potential to have been a much bigger victory. BU loaded the bases in the first inning but a potential grand slam was blown by the wind just outside of the foul pole. In fact, several potential home runs ended that way (one by Indiana State). It really wasn’t that close of a game, but now BU faces Drake who is ranked no. 25 in the nation (and deservedly so).

I plan on going.

Workout notes: weights only; weight 185.5.
