This past week one of my students repeatedly asked me if I'd attend the JV baseball game, against one of our rivals, at Raley Field, home of the Sacramento River Cats. How could I not go?
I arrived just as our first batter was up. We took an early 2-0 lead, then went down 7-2. We were at bat in the top of the 7th (the last inning), and then, with bases loaded, got a walk. 7-3. And another walk. 7-4. And another walk! 7-5. Still, of course, with bases loaded.
We lost 7-5, but what an exciting 7th inning! And I got a picture of each of my 3 JV players during the course of the game.
So that's how this teacher spent a few hours on a Saturday.
