Hanging Them Up



Today was the day to finally face reality. After several seasons with my softball team, it was time to hang up the spikes. Last season I really felt like I was a liability to the team (except when they needed a substitute pitcher!), stumbling my way around second base.

There was a time many moons ago when I was playing on five softball teams one summer. That was absolutely crazy. Now, I look across the diamond to see guys who are less than 1/3 my age. A few years ago when they lowered the age for playing in the adult leagues, there were guys playing who still had peach fuzz on their faces. But dang -- could they run.

Time to decide whether or not to pursue the next step: the senior league!

Senior, Senor?

You're still a kid. Sad though that he's housed in that decrepit body.

You may have to give up the softball league but you could join the senior league in Poker. When I was playing Fastpitch I played in a league for guys in their 30's and we were called seniors at that time. No respect.
