The bases were loaded, nobody out in the bottom of the 7th and final inning of a rubbermatch playoff softball game. Winner goes to the finals, loser goes home. The score was tied, I was at third. In softball, this is pretty much game over.
The ball was hit sharply to shortstop. I broke for home and dove headfirst, trying to make something out of nothing. I broke my wrist. The next batter popped up on the first pitch, the following batter flew out.
I stayed in the game, even got a one arm single in the 8th, but our spirit was broken. Two Boots Pizzeria went onto the finals after 8 or 9 innings. I went to the hospital.
