Section 13, Group 3

In class today we cleared up the whole baseball thing and how to get runs.  We were also able to come up with FQs and take our first quiz. Which I hope you all did good on.  Finally right before the end of class we were able to think of DQs but we ran out of time before we got to answer any of them.
