Welcome to

One day after Friday the 13th, (July 14, 2007) my granddaughter's Softball team, The Romeoville Revolution, had to play 3 games, with little rest between games.  They could have gone home after 2, if they had lost, but they won the 11:00 game with a thrilling walk off, grand slam homerun by Page, that broke an 8-8 tie.

They won the 3:00 game that also went down to the wire.  Elaina got the win in game 1 and the save in game 2.

Here is a close call that did not go our way.  Michelle (Far Right) is racing the ball to the base.

I thought I had proof that the ump blew the call, but Michelle and the ball arrive at the same time.  You make the call.
