Serving Up Softballs
To quote Rockford Peaches coach Jimmy Dugan, "there's no crying in baseball," and apparently there isn't any in softball either, as a hearty team of MCC folks, fresh off the diamond where they challenged a team of counterparts from the University of Massachusetts at Lowell to a brawlgame, are ready for more, despite their defeat.
Under the tutelage of Jonathan "the Rocket" Crockett, a team of MCC Middle-Agers took the field on Thursday on UML's South Campus. With a bevy of MCC supporters in tow, the MCC team did their best against the UML juggernaut, but came up short in the final tally.
Said the Rocket in post-game interviews: "I've identified key areas where I feel we need to spend some extra time developing - hitting, running, fielding, some of the fundamentals. But dang it, we did look good out there."
Official box scores are not yet available. The attached photo, obviously, was taken pre-game, as no one appears to be sucking wind. Top row, left to right, Manny Silveria, the Rocket himself, Pramod Bhardwaj, Jason Wedge, Bill Howshan, bottom row: David Martinez, Lindsay Vick, Pamela Flaherty, and Kevin Belfiore.
Next up: the annual Lowell vs. Bedford campuses softball clash of the titans in August! Congrats to all!
