Batter up

Saturday was a beautiful afternoon. It was sunny and 40° and that’s about the best one can hope for in the middle of March. We watched the amazing #19 Indiana softball team take on the thoroughly OK, I guess, Northwestern Wildcats.

We had to break out the rally sunglasses.

But unfortunately the home team lost. One of the nice things about softball, though, aside from the swift play and the nice athleticism, is that there’s always another game. Yesterday they played a doubleheader. We caught the afternoon game, when Indiana took on, and defeated, the perfectly hapless Ohio Bobcats.

Softball played five games this weekend. It’s possible that they have the most grueling collegiate schedule among varsity sports — 55 games in three months, and that’s before tournament play. We know the starting catcher. She’d agree; it’s a lot. Great fun to see, though. It’d be nice if it were, you know, warmer. Because it’s mid-March.
