Holly Springs, NC - 72 degrees and partly cloudy to 86 degrees and mostly cloudy

The bionic boy (Zane) will be at his teams games today he is not playing, his dad is one of the teams coaches. This weekend the team is in Rocky Mount while Bonnie and I are going to Burlington with Ariana’s team. Our original plan was to be at Zane’s game but since he is not playing we will watch Ariana’s team play softball.

Ariana at bat
It is a long day with and hour and ten minute drive (seventy miles) and being there an hour and fifteen minutes early for warm up and any possible game early start (first game 11:30 AM) we were on the road at eight-thirty today. The team had three games one “pool game” (does not count in team scoring, only a warmup) and two bracket games. The pool game they lost and won the bracket games. In the pool game Ariana played a half inning as pitcher, and another half inning as catcher thus playing all positions for this team.
Ariana on first base
The games are timed are timed at an hour and fifteen minutes and can go longer to “finish the inning” for the losing team to bat if the home team. There were nine teams in the tournament and Ariana’s team played one game and had a one game break all day.

On the way home we stopped for dinner with two other couples and team players getting home late with an early getup for tomorrow first game an hour earlier than today (sleep fast).
