3-20-11 First Baseball of the Spring
This past weekend, I was able to play my first baseball of the spring.
Nick and Bryan Pelescak and I got together for a round of home run derby
at a field in South Fayette. Amy came along and took a few pictures.
We did three rounds of home run derby. The first round consisted of 15
outs, and the other two rounds were ten outs each. Any swing that
didn’t result in a home run was considered an out.
It was a pretty close contest, with the final score being Me 9 HR, Bryan Pelescak 8 HR, and Nick 4 HR.
The dimensions of the field were about 300 feet to left field, that’ pretty much where we all hit the entire time.
Here’s some pictures that Amy snapped from the bench.

The last time we played home run derby last fall I think the score was also 9-8, with me barely edging Nick.
Spring is here. Baseball is back.
