The best laid schemes of mice and men, Go often askew.
The Outlaws' plan for this weekend's tournament was to save the top four pitchers for Sunday. On Saturday, they pitched just their second tier pitchers. Unfortunately, when the rain started on Saturday afternoon, the tournament got turned upside down and the plan backfired. The Outlaws ended up seeded 7th, but only the top six teams advanced to the playoff bracket. Originally, all of the teams were supposed to advance to the playoff bracket.
Although I think that a number of people, including myself, were tweaked by the turn of events, I do think that it was worthwhile to pitch some of the other players. Chris and Chance got an opportunity to pitch in a tournament for the first time since they have been with team.
The absence of Aaron from the line-up also made a huge difference this weekend. With his bat and glove, the Outlaws are a completely different team. Unfortunately, Aaron is not committed to the team in the intermediate term.
The Outlaws will play their last tournament of the year in the All Star Travel Ball Veterans Day Salute next weekend, November 12 and 13, at Mather.
The SEAS Eagles will hold tryouts for the varsity comp basketball team starting Monday, November 14.
