Congratulations, Taylor!

Taylor Johnson, my niece, and her softball team, the Shaker Heights (Ohio) Red Devils, won the Willoughby League Girls (12 and under) championship Thursday night. They were undefeated throughout the regular season. They played the 2nd place team for the League Championship in a best 2 of 3 games. They won the 1st game, lost the 2nd and they won in a nailbiter Thursday night, 10-7. They were down 5-0 at the top of the 4th and then in the bottom of the 4th and 5th innings, they came back to tie it up. The other team, The Closet of Willoughby, scored in the top of the 6th to make it 7-5 and our girls came back in the bottom of the 6th to score 5 more runs and make it 10-7. They retired The Closet in the top of the 7th, 1,2,3 and won thus won the game. Taylor is a rightfielder.

gyroscope, n.:
A wheel or disk mounted to spin rapidly about an axis and also
free to rotate about one or both of two axes perpindicular to
each other and the axis of spin so that a rotation of one of the
two mutually perpendicular axes results from application of
torque to the other when the wheel is spinning and so that the
entire apparatus offers considerable opposition depending on
the angular momentum to any torque that would change the direction
of the axis of spin.
