You are showing up the Christian Brothers at DLS.
If you were not looking at airplanes landing you most likely would not have been injured at Columbus Park. or maybe it was the jet wash.
Was it Vito that was taking care of you at Fontanetti’s? Thank heavens you at least misspelled the places name..At messy I know you are human;-) and NO..let’s not start grading and posts...based on my schooling..mine would end up all marked up with red ink.
If it was Vito.? You have to let me
know because I have the greatest Vito story EVER.
You might be right with boys youth and high school baseball..I honestly don’t know....but..I am sure you are wrong when it comes to youth girls in fast pitch. so why isn’t women’s slow pitch growing?
I have my beliefs on what some of the issues are but..I would be nice to know why others think the game needs to entice more to play.
Personally..I loved to play any sport when growing up because of the friendships and experiences made while competing, but..I never was made of the talent to actually stand out in any sport I played. I was a two inning one at bat guy in little league but I still played til I was 16...
The sport I lived to play the most was basketball and I never played in a league after I was 13..but I loved to play pick up games at the local jr high..It was fun because of the interacfion/shit talking/gamesmanship.
Towards the end of my high school years I started playing gold and tennis..I never made it high enough up the ladder in tennis to ever play a real set on the high school team..I was more or less a ball shagger during events..I also helped out the track team..I was not good enough to actually compete so I was more or less a Hurdle setter/sand raker. The golf coach was my homerun teacher and he in a nice way let me
know I was never going to be good enough to make the team.
I guess what I am saying is...I sucked in all sports and never had the chance to strive to be good at any of them.
three years out of high school Inplayed my first softball game. For the first year as a half of softball I never did anything other then show up, play a game, have a beer and leave.
So..Based on your view of today’s youth playing baseball... I was exactly what you described.
so.. what got me into softball.
And average athlete that worked hard could compete with a great athlete that just showed up
