Note: The Weasels made some impressive plays on defense during this game, but it was not enough to win the game. One opposing batter hit a line drive to Neil (the pitcher), who had the presence of mind to whip the ball to Brandy at first base, doubling up the runner who had left the bag. Later in the game, Eric fielded a ball in the outfield and threw the ball to Carrie (the catcher). She tagged the runner out just before he crossed the plate, and then threw the ball to Brandy who got a runner out at first base. Most Weasels contributed defensively and offensively (including a triple by Susan and some key walks by other Weasels), but unfortunately it was not enough to overcome the Practical Jokers. Thanks to Steve, Rochelle, Brandy and Cory for subbing. Thanks to Rob for taking pictures. Thanks to Matt for coming out and coaching despite having suffered a separated shoulder the night before.
