At Least They Have Hart

The one and only Waynkle came up to Utah to visit last weekend and he was able to play in the Sandy softball league with the rest of the Harts. Let me tell you, it's quite the experience to watch one of these games. Oddly enough, they have yet to win a game in the past two seasons, but it's still very entertaining to watch. And with Wayne in town, it was that much better.



Here's Wayne up to bat. Look at that stance. You'd think he belongs in the major leagues.
Play of the game: Wayne got a base hit and the other team overthrew the ball to first base. One of the rules of the softball league is if the fielding team overthrows the ball and it goes out of play (that's the key phrase), the runner can take an extra base. Well, Turk was the base coach and told Wayne to take an extra base. Wayne starts strolling over to 2nd base, just taking his sweet time, when the other team realized that they could throw him out because the ball never actually went out of play. Luckily, Waynkle made it to 2nd base just in time. We called him the sneak the rest of the night because he snuck his way over to 2nd. It was hilarious.

Dad still talks about his injured shoulder. It must have really been funny to watch the old men play.

That was fun to have you and your dad at the softball game. It gets pretty hilarious every week. I guess this week we almost won, we were only down by 4 points. Crazy! Maybe we will win a game this year.

So we did get our athletic ability from Mom's side of the family. Mystery solved.
