A twelve-run top of the first powered the Falcons to their first win in a row in a 28-6 victory over Surge on Tuesday night.
Dance Dad, apparently feeling like he's not mentioned in the recaps enough (good or bad), decided to take the game over highlight-wise. In the fifth, playing in right field, a fly ball was hit to him with a runner on first and nobody out. He made a pretty good running catch. He was very impressed with his effort. His momentum took him into the dandelion patch, and he decided to stay a while. Maybe pick some flowers, maybe set up a picnic for a light mid-inning snack. After some reflection on his accomplishment of making a running grab, Dance Dad snapped back into reality, noticing the runner who WAS on first was now rounding third. He (DD, eventually) threw the ball back to the infield to prevent the very rare three-base sacrifice fly.
Not content to make that highlight (?) the focus of the recap, Dance Dad, this time in the catching position, fielded a bunt-like-hit with a textbook shoulder roll and a strong throw to the right fielder to narrowly miss the runner legging out the "single".
Never forget, Dance Dad is a Falcon.
