Stealing Second - 26/52

The heat index said the temperature felt like like 110 degrees, but two high school softball teams said 'play ball.' I swung by a game between Des Moines East, the top-ranked team in Iowa, and Des Moines Lincoln, another of the state's best teams, to take a few photos for work. The teams split the double-header: East won the first game 6-2 and Lincoln took the second game 8-1.

 

I liked this photo the best of the ones I took, looking over the shoulder of a runner for East watching the Lincoln pitcher about to deliver the ball.

 

And, I see I'm half-way through this 52 week project!
