Hey Chug Softball, take me out to the ballgame

Lemonade, chips, bats, gloves and balls. The popping sound of a ball being forced back into momentum in the opposite direction is heard and one bat cracks. This can only be softball.

The World Series for Chug Softball was on Friday. The World Series is a great tradition where the chug splits into two teams and plays their final, seventh game with the entire machaneh as an audience. The teams this year were PlayDoh and For Real Doh.

T-shirts with team names and nicknames were made, lunch was served outside and machaneh gathered around the softball field to watch an intense game. High fives were given to everyone on the teams, machaneh cheered for both teams and softball at Mosh continues to be fun, engaging and one of the many traditions.

For Real Doh won the game, but in Habo we don’t stress competition.

Take me out to the ballgame,

Take me out to the crowd,

Buy me some peanuts and crackerjacks,

I don’t care if I ever get back,

For it’s root, root, root for the (insert preferred team here),

If they don’t win it’s a shame,

For it’s one, two, three, four, five strikes you’re out if you’re Amelim.
