Tonight Finn and his Zeeks Pizza Pilots played their final Farm 1 game of the season. It wasn’t pretty, but we came out on top 19-13. Our top-tier players all had off games — for his part, Finn had errors on both the base paths and on the field — but our role players came up huge to bail us out.
Perhaps most importantly, we finished the year undefeated against all other Farm 1 opponents — 11-0. Our only loss: a 17-11 drop against Jay Miller’s Farm 2 (read 2nd grade) team in a specially-scheduled, unsanctioned scrimmage.
Undefeated, but not unblemished.
At the conclusion of our year-end, post game party, the Pilots (and a few siblings) pelted me with what seemed like 100+ water balloons. One problem: I had my phone in my pocket.
It did not survive.
