This story got my blood pumping a bit. A baseball team in OH recently destroyed (best word here) their opponent, racking up a score of 65-0 in just the first three innings. The game was called after the third. Why was it called? For darkness, not mercy.
Where does a coach draw the line?
Ok, personal story… I remember playing lacrosse in high school, and we would eventually come up against a team that wasn’t quite on the same level, but we had something called “Class shots.” Instead of running directly to the goal and putting up 20 on the board, we would work a play for about :60 and then take a long shot from the perimeter, intentionally missing the goal. Instructed by our coach, we weren’t acting as if we were missing the goal on purpose, we were simply finding a way to turn the ball over to the other team, without embarrassing them more than they already were.
This same kind of strategy could have been put in place by this team in OH: “When you get up to bat, swing and miss at everything thrown.”
This is really pretty simple, and there aren’t any excuses for blowing out a team 65-0 in the first three innings. What do you think?
