Play Ball!

The Church bulletin on Sunday mentioned openings on a men’s slow-pitch team. One of those “mainly for fun” leagues. That is the way I like it. I feel pretty energetic and young, but the facts are that my 60th birthday is in the rear view mirror, and I should probably be careful.

11 years ago I played in a game as a sub. I was not playing regularly, and was probably out of condition. I flubbed on a pitch, hitting it as a gentle grounder and ran a bit too hard. Pulled not one, but both hamstrings. I did not realize it hurt that much!

So, since I was under 50 at that point, and now I am over 60, let’s repeat … I should probably be careful.

Batter Up !!!
