Question What would you do?

The wife is playing on her company coed team. The coach really wanted me on the roster so I could pitch the playoffs and games that were close late but was told employees only. The team from the company she used to work for lost a player to injury so she volunteered me to play which, of course, was fine. Now, the two teams are matched up in the playoffs. The other team has asked me to play for them and the wife has asked me not to because she knows the difference it will make, especially since I know the tendencies of their hitters.

So, what would you do?

go with who asked you first. tell the wife it will make her team better to face a good pitcher. maybe they will change their mind about employees only.

so your wife's company is employees only, but this other company team has non employees playing? sounds like that may already give your wife's team a disadvantage to begin with..

Here is how it went down. I told the wife that really wasn't fair to me and she decided to make me a better offer. I didn't mention that I also already had a better softball offer the same night, lol. Had I made a commitment to this team, I would certainly honor it but I was just filling in as needed and the ditzy coach didn't ask for anything more than that. I have to admit, though, that it is tempting to go ahead and play against the wife's team as it would definitely tip the scales.

As is, the wife's team is probably a bit better because of their guys and the other teams lack of pitching but it is close. Not trying to toot my own horn because this is coed Rec but I would give either team a pretty good advantage over the other.
