Zita Carno Very good reading of your last post here.
A while ago I made a post of an experience that I had with a lady pitcher. I read your post and just had to chime in with this re-post of mine:::
A long time ago I took a break form coaching and wanted to be on a rotation again. A reality check, I still here about from time to time from my lovely bride.
I, and the rest of my teammates got a plateful of crow served up to us one Sunday afternoon. And we had humble pie for desert.
Our club arrived at a real nice ball field in Upper State New York and as we started to unload our bus, we saw a pitcher warming up on the mound. As we settled into our dugout, one of our guys said.. “hey,,check out the chick!”
On the mound was a gal, about 5’7”, and not very imposing as pitchers go.
The remarks that followed out of our dugout, and I made some myself, I’m not proud of. In fact, the common theme was WHAT A JOKE!!
We played only five innings. Thank the Almighty for the mercy rule! That pitcher sent 15 of us right back to the dugout .. and it was over.
As we lined up at the plate to shake hands, every one of us removed our cap and acknowledge a great pitcher. In addition, we expressed regret and apologized for the earlier remarks.
Well, that was that… so we all though. However, to this day… and I swear I
saw it …. all of our wives looked at that woman and silently confirmed the
following…. “THANKS SISTER… WE’LL TAKE IT FROM HERE!!”
