I have found that I probably shouldn't play third base during our softball games. I like playing third, but it's pretty obvious third doesn't like me. The first time I played it, a few weeks ago, I got hit right in the toe with a softball. You'd think with softball cleats on, it wouldn't be too bad, but the evidence of the injury still remains (this is after a few weeks of healing):
And then last night I was at third again. I think I made a couple of good plays, so it wasn't totally wasted, but that didn't really make me feel any better when the ball hit me in the shin. What you can't see in this picture is the softball sized bump. At least I can walk without a limp this morning, which is a good thing, because I don't want to be limping around when we go camping tomorrow.
