Maddie didn't get them all, but she made a dent (3 of 5). The opposing coach is definitely aggressive with base-running. This game was a friendly, not a tournament, so the ump showing a little enthusiasm wasn't really out of line. He was actually pretty good. Getting a fist-bump is pretty funny, though. I didn't notice it until I watched the video.The fist bump with the ump was pretty comical...maybe save that for after the game...but dang you think they would learn, probably what he was thinking too?? Coach should just say stop running into outs against that girl with the cannon back there.
I feel your pain. On one play, our F5 ducked to get out of the way of a throw to 3B from Maddie. Unfortunately, F6 wasn't there as F5 expected. That one cost us a run. Friendlies are for learning.Nice work, especially from the knees! DD threw down one girl at 2nd last weekend and there would have been a second, but no one was there to catch it! Grrr... Catchers work hard; be there for them, infielders!
