When one had the opportunity to work with today's youngsters, who followed in their fathers, and even grandfathers footsteps on Norristown Playing Fields. Youngsters who believe that the (F) bomb is the only way to comunicate on today's field of play. Let's not forget the sneaking of a can of suds beyond the NO drinking zone.
I will miss the players who played hard and respected the blue uniform. I hope players found that respect was reciprocal on my part to those who deserved it. Up the hill took care of those who refused to obey the rules of the road. Not many found the trip necessary. Two games is a rough pill to swallow.
My very best to Heels and Steve Dimitry for all they do for the game of softball. If you think it's easy try it someday. Keep your jock tight,your bat hot,and your lips sealed, the men in Blue will do the rest.
Enough said from this old man who firmly believed he could keep his motor running until age 90.
God bless all in the 2018 season
