Nolan played a good game today as his fall baseball team traveled to North Colonie.
We didn't have the really cool professional umpire we had last week. This time it was just a kid only a few years older than the boys playing ball.
But still, Nolan thought it was cool to go to another town for the first time and play on someone else's field.
He had a great day at the plate with 3 RBI for the day. The first two came on a double in the first inning. The third RBI was on a single he hit with the bases loaded.
In between he reached base when he got hit by a pitch. He took one in the shin, but says it didn't hurt.
His single really should have been a walk. But I guess they have some crazy rule that says they're not allowed to walk in a run. So even though he took four balls, he had to keep going until he either struck out or got a hit. Two pitches later he got his single.
We have one more game at home next weekend. That might be the last game for the fall, although there is a chance we'll play one more.
A quick recap of the week
