Batting helmet! It’s almost like they anticipated we’d be going to Citi Field more for the giveaways and the food…I can’t wait to get mine Friday night. I have no idea where I will wear it, but you can imagine the fun I may be having with it here…
Zoë and batting? The first time I swung a bat was in April, ’08 in the Citizen Bank Park parking lot. Matty Cerrone was teaching me wiffle ball before he pulled a hammy (and Ollie got the win). The second time was on a date at the Chelsea Piers batting cages. I did 3 rounds of slow-pitch soft ball, 20-40 mph. On my best round I hit 8 out of 10, all headed foul. But still, first time! And now that I’ll have a batting helmet, maybe it won’t be the last!
Then again, maybe not. My hands hurt.
(What, you don’t wear a purse when you play wiffle ball?)
