Ragball 2012

Yesterday we headed up to Hiddenite, NC to play some ragball. Every year our good friend Steven organizes a Ragball event to raise money for a charity. This year his Walmart store was raising money for Levine Children's Hospital. There were three teams this year and I got placed on the Coke team.

Ragball is pretty much slow pitch softball but with a very soft ball. The game is loads of fun and is great because people of all skill level can play. Turns out I was the only girl on the Coke team. So you can guess where I ended up playing.....yeah right field. Most of the games I was swatting flies out of my face. But I actually did get two pop ups hit my way and I caught both of them. I still got some skills left from my softball days. I got a couple of good hits and thankfully didn't strike out like some of the other guys on my team. 

We ended up going undefeated. We won all three games. Lets just say that I don't run any faster then I did when I was a kid. I think I actually run slower if that is possible. After playing three games back to back, lets just say I can feel all the muscles in my body today. Oh and I ended up sliding into second and was safe, but came up with a scratched up knee. Yeah my sliding skills have not changed either.


I did enjoy having Virginia sitting in the dugout cheering me on. She even asked me when she grows up if she can play. Fingers crossed I may still have a chance at her playing softball. She starts ballet this summer. Can't wait to see her dancing, should be super cute. 

After the games were over Reiggin picked me up and we handed back to his parent's house to hang out. Virginia was already there enjoying blowing bubbles with MiMi and Sadie. Virginia loves it up there. Mimi has old barbie dolls that Virginia loves to dig into every time we come. And she gets to go visit their cows and sometimes even gets to go check out the chickens. There is just plenty of land for her to run and play. 




Once Reiggin's dad was done collecting all the chicken eggs. We headed to Crackel Barrel for dinner. That pretty much rounded out a perfect day. Can't beat ragball and some family time together.
