wine by the color

So, I guess everybody heard the big news from the baseball world last night?

That's right. Crazy Nephew #1 played under the bright lights of the town's little league field. First night game ever, which included each player's name being announced over the loudspeaker. He played admirably, going 3-for-3 with three runs scored. He also actually caught a ball at one point (it may have been during warm-ups, but when you're six years old, a catch is a catch).

There were no suspicions of performance-enhancing drugs, although several Blow-Pops were enjoyed during the game.

And, just when the assembled crowd started to wonder if the game would ever end, the lights went out, plunging the area into complete darkness. Game over.

    Too bad the lights went out early.

    I heard Hank Aaron recorded a message of congratulations for Crazy Nephew No. 1, too, to be played during the game on the Diamondvision.

    Wow. Nice job by CN#1.

    I'm curious to know if a root was protruding from 3rd base. Or maybe that's just a Union County thing.

    Oh no. In Somerset County, they have a maintenance crew keeping the grounds tidy on a daily basis.

    So what you're saying is that at no point during the game did anyone yell you "Hit the tree! Foul ball!"

    That is correct. There were also no searches for balls in the outfield woods. There were, however, a bevy of crappy throws to first.

    That seemed familiar.
