Put me in Coach, I’m ready to play!

15 Pax including 2 FNGs posted at Jumanji (tied the record) for a Baseball Postseason inspired workout on the diamond.  YHC described the workout as “If you like baseball, you will like this workout… If you don’t like baseball, you won’t like it even more after this…”  Not sure if this prediction came true, but the pax dug deep and finished strong… the same way you have play in the PLAYOFFS!

The Thang:

BOM – Disclaimer / Prayer

2 pax carry the equipment, the rest line up for some fly ball applesause.

COT:

FNGs: (Alter Boy suggested baseball themed names)

  • Bob Hicks: Went to Brookland-Cayce High School > BC is Alama Mater of Gamecock Baseball Legend Kip Bouknight > “Kipper”
  • Claudel Gratia: From Haiti and lived in New York > Haiti is in the Caribbean > Orlando Hernandez was from the Caribbean and pitched for the Yankees > “El Duque”

Moleskin:

  • YHC enjoyed his first trip to Jumanji.  Looking forward to the second time.
  • No one picked up on the significance of 27 count in the COP, at least YHC never heard anyone make the connection.  Each team gets 27 outs in a 9 inning game.
  • YHC had some trivia ready for the pax, especially Ginger, but got too wrapped up in the game to remember… Maybe next time.
  • Hitting off a tee in the dark was good entertainment, at least from what YHC could see (which wasn’t much) but mostly hear.  Some may have felt like the picture above…
