    Actually, Kaz has been missing 26 days, which seems like a lot until you consider Mimi’s prolonged absence of 67 days.

    Coaches Held Hostage: Day 65 for Mimi; Day 24 for Kaz. If the speculation about being sat down for attending the Pranks concerts (that’s how hard core fans refer to them) is correct, then Mimi may have to make an appearance to administer that punishment to Boo. Wait. That’s what would happen in the real world or any comic strip striving for some semblance of reality (that’s your cue, Mr. Reality), but this is Gil Thorp. Never mind anything I said except the count.

    The Larks appear to be on a long road trip. They’ve worn the dark jersey for three games in a row — Tilden, Valley Tech, and now Madison. By the way, Madison just won the state championship in boys baseball here in Virginia, so good win, Gil.

    Coaches Held Hostage: Day 63 for Mimi; Day 22 for Kaz. (I know I posted this a few minutes ago, but it doesn’t show up. Conspiracy theorists have at it.)

    The last time Mimi appeared was April 18, which predates the start of softball season. So we have no proof that she’s coached the girls at all this year. The last time Kaz appeared was May 29. I guess it’s time to start keeping track of this again.

    Coaches Held Hostage: Mimi, 62 Days; Kaz, 21 Days.

    Nice “The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis” reference. Of course you know that the “G” stood for Walter. Go figure.

    As for the home/road question: you can tell by the uniforms. When Milford is at home, they wear red jerseys; on the road they wear black. Today’s are red (check out the Seattle Times comics online for the color version), so this has to be home, which is consistent with Gil making a pitching change in the top of the inning.

    The ‘Larks are probably going to have to take the lead for Gil to bring in Tru as his closer, so I’m looking for at least a two-run rally here.

    No wonder they couldn’t see it; everything’s in the shadows in P2. Looks like the Fist Pump Man Family Reunion softball game. But seriously, I agree with Pappaw that the “sounded a little outside” comment was meant to emphasize the speed of the pitch.

    I think he’s teaching him the two kinds of fastballs, not breaking balls, though why Tru wouldn’t know how to throw at least one of those pitches is beyond me.
