Can’t explain it…but if you were a Don (or parent or a fan) on the Acalanes baseball field you could FEEL the homerun hit by Colin Norstad. There is not really anything else to talk about… what else happened in the game?!! Who can remember after that hit!
Jake Boselli (pitched for four innings) and Miller Smith (closed it out) were on the mound for the Dons. Sammy Lee had two hits, others like Ellis Burger, Jake Boselli, Kyle Bielawski and Tyler Worthington each had hits…but there was only one Homerun!
The Clayton Valley dugout had 30 Eagles on their team, and Dons had a team of 10 on our home turf. It seems the convocation (fancy word for group) of Eagles, even though they were leading in the game, needed to ‘chat it up’ against the Dons. To some, this type of chatter is just as much a part of the game as bubblegum and batting gloves. To others, it is the ultimate sign of poor sportsmanship. But as the saying goes, ‘Actions speak louder than words’ or like Eminem sings ‘You own it, you better never let it go You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow This opportunity comes once in a lifetime‘.. One ball…one moment…one hit…one Colin! Nikko Woodson who hit a homerun a few weeks ago at Campo, said with an enthusiastic smile, ‘That homerun made me more happy than my homerun against Campo’.
The Dons were down 4 to 6 in the bottom of the seventh inning when Colin homered on the first pitch of the at bat, scoring three runs with a walk off and that was the game!
JV Dons play Tuesday at 430pm (home) against Clayton Valley again. Keep it up Dons!
