I am so very proud of DD. She pitched well, hit well, etc. But unfortunately, it takes a team to win. We lost 1-8 due to errors. They switched DD out to RF in 4th inning (to her credit, she did do good...she got them to hit grounders and fly balls...IF just couldn't either stop them or made errors - we had like 5 or 6 errors while she pitched). But she was 2 for 3 at the plate with a line drive to LF and a bunt. And she caught a fly ball in RF, threw it home for what should have been an out (ump didn't see tag)...beautiful throw.
Anyway, bottom line is she put herself out there, did her job in spite of lack of team effort. Even though HS ball isn't all that, she is learning something from it. Amanda Scarborough wrote 4 entries on her blog about the grievances of high school ball:
