Fall Training

Softball has come to ACS! Betsy and I are coaching 8th grade softball this year, mostly because it's just so much fun. Though the 8th graders don't always know the rules, and we have about twelve people in the outfield at once, it doesn't seem to matter. Every Thursday afternoon, a flock of students comes out to play a game they hardly understand (seriously, you try explaining what "force out" or "tag up" means to someone who can hardly sort out balls and strikes -- this game is way more complicated than I thought) just to have fun and hang out after school. Below, you can see them warming up with grounders (not always easy on the bumpy, patchy field) and then playing a few innings. It's definitely one of the highlights of our week.
