That's what I heard from the mouths of babes tonight. The ball diamond was rained out, so I went to the batting cage to use some pent up energy. (I have lots! ) I was swinging away when some young kids began watching behind me. I was just concentrating on hitting while they were talking and didn't notice what they were talking about until I heard one reply to the other with: "...yeah they lob it to you and you get to crank it." He was obviously talking about how the ball is thrown to you in slow pitch softball and he was right. It kind of made me chuckle inside, so I turned around and said, "Yep, that's exactly what softball is like." I grinned and dropped another coin in the box as I thought about how l'd think twice before ever trading places with this kid in life. "They lob it to you and you get to crank it." Oh how I love slow pitch softball!
