Diving for the prize....

This weekend was different than it was supposed to be. I didn't have any high school sports to shoot because of this ridiculous pig flu molehill turned into a mountain causing the state of Texas to cancel all high school events until May 11. So I had the start of the Lone Star Conference baseball tournament instead of the regional track meet. The good thing is the UIL (the governing body for high school event in Texas) came to their senses and rescheduled the regional track meets instead of going with their original idea to take the four fastest times in the region from the district meets. So, anyway, ACU's first game of the Lone Star Conference baseball tournament was against Southeastern Oklahoma State. The game was pretty boring, a lot of routine plays nothing visually exciting, until the fifth inning when the outfielders started diving for balls and the runners were crashing into home plate. Sadly, I was on the wrong side of the field for those. But I was able to get a nice diving catch in the outfield. Not bad for the first day of the tournament. Hopefully it will get better.

Hi Tom, I guess I am one of your fans! I love the picture of the shadow and Dad will be impressed with Nolan Ryan...(even I know who he is) although he sure does look different! Keep up your blog at least I know what is going on with you. Love, Mom
