When it comes to softball, Crocs just wanna have fun

WALKING from the softball field into the shade of the dugout, Treinna Finlay was told how embarrassing she was by her daughter.

Not for playing poor, not for making an error, Finlay was 'embarrassing' because she made a good play, making an infield catch for the third out in the innings.

Well, Finlay then decided to dance in celebration of her achievement, causing the embarrassing moment.

Dancing is part of a list of fun moments the Crocs women's team employs, even having a list of rules to play by, in addition to the technical ones of the sport.

"We have a few rules, no saying sorry, laugh at yourself because we are going to laugh at you and have a lot of fun," Finlay said.

The team is into its second year, forming from a group of mothers watching their children train and play.

One day the team suddenly formed.

"We were all at training and decided we should have a team," Finlay said. "I had only played at high school, nothing major, just in the school team."

Largely unsuccessful on the score board, the result of matches does not matter to Finlay or the Crocs team, who have fun even when struggling against superior opposition.

Playing against the premiership winning Psyclones, the Crocs were down players and a few runs, a factor that did not stop the laughing from the field.

"It doesn't matter what the draw says, we just turn up to have fun," Finlay said. "We were playing seven of us against eight of them today."
