Forget you cleats/turfs

Played wed night on turf field(I enjoy the turf) but forgot my cleats at home d'oh, so wore my Vibram 5fingers.

Coach said no problem you DH, problem solved. Not so quick could not keep the back foot planted while starting the swing. Went 0 for 3 on 2 fielders choice and an error. running the bases not an issue, but hitting with the back foot sliding out and back. Robbing what little power I have and overall placement of the ball was horrid.

So do what I say and not what I did. Bring all your gear.

Getting to the field and discovering I forgot my turfs would be a horrible feeling.

We played on the turf field on Tuesday and had to pick up a 10th who was wearing flip-flops the first half of the game. He caught and went 4-4 at the dish.

Turf shoes sitting at home - $80
Gas to get to the field - $25
Going 4 for 4 in flip flops - priceless
