Yankees at Mets, livetweeted

Yankees at Mets. Beautiful sky over NY. I'm at a bar in Boston drinking beer, Newport Storm rhode island blueberry. Jeter stranded in 1st. # Jeter trouble getting to a grounder and popup, but CC escapes trouble with nice K of Wright and a soft liner to Cano. #nyy # When Santana bats it looks […]

24 Hour Game Diary Pt 8

Monday, October 20, 2003 12:48 pm Arizona time (Pacific) Well, my flight leaves in about an hour, and here I am sitting in the Tucson airport with sore legs, but happy. The Red-Eyed Nites mounted a comeback in the morning hours, cutting the lead of the African Gray Birds, which had been around 40 runs […]

24 Hour Game Diary Pt 7

Sunday, October 19, 2003 4:20 am Arizona time (Pacific) Since I last wrote I’ve had the best catch of my life. I don’t mean a caught ball in the outfield, I mean best game of catch. Chiba, one of the Japanese players, and I went down to the batting tunnel after we woke up from […]

24 Hour Game Diary Pt 6

Saturday, October 18, 2003 11:08 pm Arizona time (Pacific) I have just had my first major league shower. And damn it felt good. It is patently clear that this is the locker room of the team with the tallest player in the majors, because the showerheads are set so high it’s hard to reach them […]

24 Hour Game Diary Pt 5

Saturday, October 18, 2003 8:30 am Arizona time (Pacific) Ow. Ow. Ow. Well, if I thought I might be less tired and less sore today… I was wrong. If I felt yesterday like I had been hit by a car, today I feel like I was run over by a monster truck. Repeatedly. My feet […]

24 Hour Game Diary Pt 4

Friday, October 17, 2003 3:18 pm Arizona time (Pacific) Oh my god I’m sore. My legs, my back, my butt, my feet. I woke up this morning feeling like I’d been in a car wreck. (Actually, I didn’t feel anywhere near this bad after my motorcycle accident!) Given how much ibuprofen i am taking to […]

24 Hour Game Diary Pt 3

Friday, October 17, 2003 4:22 am Arizona time (Pacific) Can’t sleep. I’m so tired, my muscles are burning, but some part of me is so keyed up I can’t get back to sleep even though I’m exhausted. Yesterday (today?) was probably one of the best baseball days of my life. It would have been anyway, […]

24 Hour Game Diary Pt 2

October 16, 2003 9:10 am Arizona time (Pacific) Just got back from breakfast with my roomie, Theresa MacGregor. We’re here at the Amerisuites by the Tucson airport, along with a couple dozen other women baseball players. If you’re just tuning in, we’re here as part of a fundraiser/awareness-raiser called “24 Hours for Africa.” It’s like […]

24 Hour Game Diary 1

Originally posted on October 15, 2003. October 15, 2003 5:20 pm (not sure what time zone) I am flying on a plane as I write this, on my way to Tucson for the “24 Hours for Africa” women’s baseball marathon. I shouldn’t even be typing this because my elbow hurts, typing aggravates it, and I […]

Women’s Baseball Player Diary Part 6

Originally appeared on October 14, 2003. Okay folks, get ready for a really personal one this time. This entry isn’t about how the Yankees have executed three strike-em-out-throw-em-out double plays, or how they had four men reach base by base on balls and scored none, whereas they gave up only one walk and that was […]

Women’s Baseball Player Diary Part 5

Originally posted on August 16, 2003. July 26 2003 I had to miss Wednesday’s game because of the writing class I’m teaching, but I heard we won. That made the team’s record 6-2 (with two rainouts and one game cancelled for lack of umpires) before today’s game. The only two losses were both to the […]

Women’s Baseball Player Diary, Part 4

Originally posted on July 24, 2003. July 1 2003 Narragansett Electric (that’s my team) beat ISL tonight. The final score was 9-4, I think, though it could have been 9-6. I know we were leading 6-4 in the fourth, having scored all six runs in the first inning when the ISL pitcher/coach, Darry, just didn’t […]

2003 Women’s Baseball Diary Part 3

Baseball Player Diary 2003, Part 3 Originally posted on June 30, 2003. June 5 Tonight I volunteered at the ABCD Field of Dreams tournament at Fenway Park. ABCD is Action for Boston Community Development, and the Field of Dreams is a tournament where large corporations who donate a heap o’ money get to play in […]
