Battle of the Badges

Yesterday the fire department softball team played in the 1st annual Battle of the Badges tournament. It was a best of three tournament played at Coolray Field between us, the fire department, and the police department. Playing on the field was bad ass. It made me wish I could go back in time and try harder to make it in baseball. The games were really good games. PD took the first game 12-10. In the second game, the FD turned it on and beat the Po-Po 12-9. That took us to the rubber match ... game 3. The game stayed close. The lead changed a few times, but in the end there can only be one winner. PD made a valiant effort in the bottom of the 7th, but FD would emerge victorious 9-8. It was a great day to play some ball.  

 View from home. It was awesome playing on a top notch field. Even if it was softball.
Here's a team shot before the game. Me on the back row, far right.
They put our picture and name up on the jumbotron. That was sweet.
Me making the bellsouth call to the bullpen.
Chillin' in the dugout
I got to meet Larry Wachs from the Regular Guys Show.
And finally ... the trophy.
