Tuesday night league softball results

With all games on the Tuesday night league being more competitive, so has the run for the title. Three more weeks of play will determine that outcome. Much has and still depends on the teams getting their full teams in action. This week had the DS Electric Shockers having to comeback in their final at bat to win both games by an identical score.

Tuesday night league softball results

Another full week of games was accomplished. The Tuesday night league has reached the midway point of their season after being able to complete a makeup night. The final run should be interesting as the strongest team (Sunset Canyon Baptist) spotted the league four games by forfeit when a miscommunication caused forfeitures on the makeup night. Tuesday night had three highlight games. In the SCB-Shockers game it was tied at 14 when the Shockers failed to tally in the final at bat of regulation. SCB exploded in the extra inning for their win. The Bombers stared down a 10-3 deficit to comeback in the final two innings for their win over the Conglomerates. The Conglomerates trailed the Shockers 6-0 before DSC chipped back in the final innings for their win.

Sports Opinion: Random Musings

We are getting back to the Dripping Springs school sports histories. This one will cover the first half of the 90's. It was a very good half decade as nineteen teams earned playoff berths and two state championships. Through most of these years, district foes included Burnet, Fredericksburg, Lake Travis, Lampasas, Liberty Hill and Marble Falls when those teams had some of their better teams. All those years Dripping Springs competed in the 3A classification.

Sports Opinion: Random Musings

Well sports fans, I am getting the same feeling I got during the spring sports seasons. The powers that be are back to dangling that carrot just out of reach when it comes to having fall seasons. Yes, everyone would like to go back to pre-COVID days and ignore the present situation but it is simply not going away until there is a vaccine. That is predicted to not happen until sometime in 2021. All of this calls for a huge amount of patience, a trait that many Americans have proven time and time again they are lacking. Ironically, the very people one would expect to be doing everything they can to be able to play are the very ones failing to follow the accepted steps to reduce the possibility of getting the virus. I prefer to follow the advice of those who have spent their entire career studying such things. Athletes are asked to sacrifice for the good of the team by their coaches, who have spent their careers studying their trade, so that should easily crossover to the area of our health as well. Small price to pay. We can force-feed sport seasons, but we know the virus will still be with us and it will be interesting how teams will look during the season as the infected and exposed have to be dealt with day by day and game to game. No doubt the sports world will be turned on its head for the duration of this setback.
