The Rookie


Dave and I have been playing catch all this week. He bought me a Mizuno first baseman's mitt at a garage sale, and he has a really well broken-in Wilson. He is a great pitcher, and played ball all his life, making the all star ranks innumerable times. He played in the World Series of over 40 guys twice in Arizona. I saw him hit a grand slam once and be the hero of the game.
Collect this card
So when he asked me to catch a few with him, I knew I would be learning from the master.
I did pretty well for an old babe, and caused him to laugh deeper and harder than he had in a long time. We both laughed, really. I listened to his advice and promptly did the opposite. I tried to not look scared when the ball came right at me. Most of the time I caught it. I am such a girl.
But today I was trying to decide to hold my mitt up or sideways and was beaned.

Drama Queen

I went down like a ton of bricks. It stung. I laid there on the grass hoping it would pass quickly as it had yesterday when I was beaned the first time. I have a big target. Dave felt terrible, but really it was nothing, I thought, until I removed my hand and saw all the blood. eeeoouuuwww.

Don't look if you're squeemish. I did not do this in Photoshop.



We applied an ice pack and some Merlot and I felt a lot better.
Dave says I am a real ball player now.
This is high praise.

  1. Good grief. I advise staying indoors where it's safer. Usually.

    Ouch! I think there must be a connection between testosterone and ball games (grin). If we were meant to play we'd have bigger hands. I do hope this heals soon.
    Just what will the neighbours think?
    LOLS,

  4. Oh my poor honey! I am in perpetual (at least for the next 12 hours) cringe mode. Get some neosporin on that. It will all seem hilarious in 2 weeks.

  6. Ah, yes....the 'take one for the team' rule!
    My husband wasn't truly accepted by his ball team until he broke a leg sliding into 3rd.

    Hope you mend fast. Who knows? Maybe the impending pretty colors will be an inspiration for art.

    Welcome to the Big Leagues! Where can I get Shiner Johnson's baseball card?????

    I think Dave has some serious making up to do when you feel better. Milk it for all it's worth! Ha ha!

    Hope you're feeling better soon.

    For that same reason I never played Cricket with the boys when I was younger....

  11. Ouch! But now you have a great excuse to lie back and be pampered. Put on your big Jackie O sunglasses and you'll still look marvelous, if slightly mysterious. Hope you heal soon!

  13. Whoa! That hurts just lookin' at it.
    Wishing you speedy healing!

  14. Whoa~! When I go to ballgames I always bring my mitt - not to catch the ball but to clap it over my face at every crack of the bat. I once made the Braves first baseman laugh out loud. Now I can see my instincts are correct.
