11/30/2006: "Last Day in Camp"
Today is my last full day here until February. The Red Sox came in to play a game and a very good game it was. The Yanks pulled it out in the eight inning. Trailing 1-0 they loaded the bases on a hit, a walk, and a surprise bunt single by one of the large guys. I think he was trying to sacrifice, but the bunt was perfectly placed. There was an easy pop fly out, and the next batter then hit what looked like a sure-fire inning-ending double play grounder, but the throw from the second baseman to first was high and got by the first baseman, allowing two runners to score. Final score was 2-1.
So, I'm off to Santo Domingo tomorrow, where I'll be staying at the same place I stayed when I first got here back in September, the Apart-Hotel Atalaya. I'll try to catch a ride with one of the coaches after the game tomorrow. More later.
