PROM TEST: Jamie-Lee Gehrmann during the Crocs 1 vs Crocs 2 softball match at the Warren Dinte Diamond, Gladstone.

Playing with paint on no bar to side's win

JAMIE-LEE Gehrmann has played softball for 13 years, and has become very comfortable anywhere on the diamond.

On Saturday though, Gehrmann was more uncomfortable than she had been in a long time taking the field.

Turning up late, the 17-year-old was out of sorts running onto the outfield.

But it was the make-up she was wearing which put Gehrmann on edge and out of sorts.

"I got my make-up test done for my prom," she said.

"I just want to take it off, I have never played in it before."

It was not just the make-up causing problems while Gehrmann was in the heat of the afternoon.

"I have hairspray all through my hair too," she said. "That all took about four hours, so then I was late too."

The discomfort didn't stop Gehrmann from playing well, reeling off hits with little issue.

It was not the make-up issue which nearly prevented her from getting on base either, but giving up on a play after popping up in the in-field.

Gehrmann's Crocs team didn't see the harm in the make-up, having a ball against a fellow Crocs outfit.

It was a hit-and-run fest in the match, with both sides unable to stop the rally of scores at home plate.
