The end of a pretty good season

Tonight the Rivercats lost to the Tacoma Raniers for the Pacific Division Championship. Like last night's game - they should have won it. Tonight they had 14 hits but only were able to generate 2 runs. Tacoma scored 5 on eight hits. They had plenty of chances, like they did last night. But they just could not finish the job. For this series every game was won by the away team. We went eleven innings tonight and ten last night - so we certainly got our money's worth. Gone were some of the power hitters of last year's team.

This was a fun season nonetheless. Our section, 107, developed a camaraderie that made the games more interesting. There are a couple in the group that really know the ins and outs of baseball and then the rest of us that simply enjoy the relaxing nature of the game. As you could see from the earlier posts there were several funny times. A couple of games we woulda, coulda, shoulda. There were some disappointing seasons and also some that really shined.

Tacoma goes on to play Nashville for the Championship and we go back to a more normal life - no baseball for several months but Opera next weekend (Barber of Seville) and lots of travel in the fall. Even a chance for the section to get together in October.
