Soft-Ballers

Happiness for me is hanging out next to the baseball field, in case you couldn’t tell from my sports portfolio. But the next best thing is softball, because it’s basically the same sport, but on a much smaller field with less reaction time.

This photo is from a game I shot yesterday between Bishop Fenwick High School and St. Mary’s. The player sliding in to home, Kristina Burri, is my kind of player — basically being a pain in the butt, baiting and taunting the catcher to try for a pickoff every time she got on base. Reminds me of myself!

4.7.2010 — PEABODY, Mass. — St. Mary's second baseman Kristina Burri scores on a wild pitch from Bishop Fenwick's Alyssa Begin, right, and an off-target toss from catcher Amanda McInnis in St. Mary's 9-3 at Fenwick.

Burri also scored from first on a throwing error as she was stealing second, without a play at home (which wasn’t a very interesting picture). Gotta love the team speed!
