Girls Softball

We have two of our girls in softball this spring, and it is great fun to watch. One would think it would be boring, but that is far from the case. It is fast pitch softball, base stealing is allowed, and throwing is more natural than catching. I don't ever think I have witnessed a player get three strikes (not foul balls) and score in the same at bat before, but it can happen in this league, especially when 4 errors are made in one play! It goes like this:

Swing and strike III...but the pitch was wild, and the catcher missed!
RUN! Who me? RUN!
Wild throw to first!
Hey I made it!
RUN! Who me?
Missed throw to 2nd!
Hey I made it!
RUN! Who me?
Wild throw to third!
Hey I made it! Do I keep running?
YES!!!
SCORE!

Unfortunately we were on the wrong side of that play, but it was one of the funniest plays I have ever watched :)

Quick question, Bill. How does one take pics in darkness. For example, fireworks, moon, etc? Thanks for any advice.
