Played a double header today and Im embarrassed to say by the 2nd half of the 2nd game I was gassed. I do play hard and will run out the shittiest grounder I might hit in the hopes I can force a hurried throw and it works sometimes. But at one point I just couldn't be bothered to stretch for a throw that was wide of 1st and I felt really bad after.
Hey, Robbie Cano, how you doin'?
Like I might win a batting title one day.

Don’t know what that means but you should be ashamed of yourself!
In relatable Cricket terms it would mean you were stuck in the wicket and didn't get the squishy.

I had a similar experience 2 weekends ago. I also played a double header. First baseball of the year for me. I've always been a line drive hitter who has relied on my speed. I hit lead off and while I got a decent hit my first at bat I really struggled to get to first in time to beat the throw. It went downhill from there, my legs just got heavier and heavier. I was then covering 2nd and got upended by the runner, falling on my backside and my tail bone is still sore. I think I'm in pretty good shape for 43, but I'm noticing that certain parts are just wearing down.

Yeah it probably didn't help that Id had a few beers during the first game. I was never drunk but I have to think that played a role.

My hitting has been terribly inconsistent since last fall . Im also normally a line drive hitter singles/doubles with the odd HR. But since last falls its been a lot of crappy ground balls to 2nd or SS and I cant figure it out. Lots of balls hitting the tapered part between the handle and the barrel. Very frustrating.

Reverse PEDs—just like the old timey ballplayers.

I hear you. I've gone through those same spells in recent years. I think it's a combo of eyesight and reflexes. I'm still "seeing" the ball okay, but my body isn't reacting in the same way and I'm not getting around on the ball as fast as I used to.

Yeah understandable in baseball but not for softball. If just doesn't make sense. I guess its more a timing thing.

Bought an Apple Watch today (refurbished) after learning that there's an app that monitors for signs of epileptic seizures and can send alerts to others, as well as keep a log of seizure activity. Even tho I always tell her when I've had a seizure, The Boss was all for something that would let her know if my brain goes haywire. And I'm kinda curious whether I have seizures in my sleep but aren't aware of it. So, I'll have my first watch in, I dunno, 20 years?

Get a seizure dog instead that more fun and interesting. Apple watches are boring.

We already have three cats, who wouldn't be keen on a dog. I don't care about boring or interesting, only utility.

First a smartphone, now this. What's next, a flying car?

In all seriousness, I'm glad you are employing this safety measure.

:lol: Well, we did buy a car manufactured in this millenium this past December, so that's pretty close to a flying car. Also, I have engaged in a total of two calls on this phone. It just sits there.
