Game #1

Date: Dec 6, 2001
Start: 6:30pm
End: 7:15pm
Where: Krieg Field #2
Opponents: Hardliners

We were the home team (meaning we batted second).

Outcome: LOSS
Final score: 24-6

Note: Although the Ice Weasels committed some errors, this loss was not solely caused by them. The Weasels' offense was nonexistent, usually only getting one base hit an inning. Neil had some trouble throwing strikes, and the Hardliners didn't mind taking balls that, although not strikes, were hittable. Matt played an excellent defensive game at first base, opening the game by fielding a hard hit ball and beating the runner to the bag. This was also the first game in which Beth and Crystal played for the Weasels -- they're new to the team for the winter season, and it looks like they'll be an asset to the team. Thanks to them for playing, and to Maria for subbing for us on extremely short notice.

* - When the game began, Maria was absent. She was supposed to be playing 3B, so Tammy covered for her, and Carrie (who was supposed to be DH) covered for Tammy in RF. Maria arrived during the first inning, so from the second inning onward Maria played 3B, Tammy played RF, and Carrie was DH.
