2008 Fall Baseball Game 7

Jack played in his seventh game of the 2008 fall baseball season. The Yankees played the Crushers.

With some help from the scorekeeper, Jack was 2 for 4 at the plate. In his first at-bat, Jack struck out on five pitches. He hit a very high pop-up behind second base in his second plate appearance. The second baseman was unable to make the play and the ball "dropped for a hit." Jack eventually came around to score. With the bases loaded in his third at-bat, Jack hit one down the third base line. The third baseman threw the ball home for the out and a fielder's choice. In his fourth plate appearance, Jack hit a triple in deep left center to drive in two runs; the ball bounced to the fence on one hop.

Jack played two innings at shortstop, one inning at third base, one inning at first base and 1/3 of an inning in left field. He had his most active game of the season in the field. At first, he stretched nicely for a throw from the shortstop for an out. Jack also made a nice catch on a soft line drive hit in front of him; gloving the ball just above the grass. At shortstop, he handled two grounders and made throws to first and second for the outs. They just barely missed turning a double play.

The Yankees won by a score of 15 to 0. Their record for the fall baseball season is 7 wins and 0 losses.
