It's too bad they don't have something like this for some of us folks that still have to work. I'd love to play nights or on the weekend.

i'm still working, but i just schedule a couple hour meeting at the same time on Wednesdays and Fridays. Of course, I work remotely.

there is neighborhood ball that plays on Saturdays and every Sunday is open batting practice, pretty much sun up to sun down.

MH - This is your boss. No more Weds / Friday meetings!




Also, you need a mask to play infield.

I'm going to try making it to BP with Bill tomorrow morning. If you are there, can you show me how you do that weak little bloop, just over the second baseman's head? You make it seem so natural

I've been trying to stop myself from relapsing but it's getting harder and harder. I've been clean for about 20 years now, I know I shouldn't use again, I know I'll end up getting hurt in the end, yet the craving and desire continues to grow and consume me.

But seriously, one more trip around the base paths couldn't be that harmful, could it?

I can quit anytime I want, right?

Careful! All it takes is on (base)line, and you're a junkie again...

Ha! I've been watching you. You hit a couple out . . . followed by a half dozen choppers and foul popups.

First at bat I hit a rocket (as you do) to left center for a hit. Unfortunately, I followed it with a pop up behind second (just like you) !!!

You should be proud!

To all readers of this thread:

Bogmonster pulled a calf in his first game and got thrown out as he tried to limp back to 1st.

Don't fret Bogmonster - it happens to most rookies.

My late uncle Art "Dutch" Schult( not the gangster Dutch Schultz) a former NY Yankee lived in Ocala where there were senior softball leagues. As a former major league player, he used to think the softball players were guys who were frustrated baseball players who still are trying to chase dreams that are unattainable ( that's what he said not my opinion). My thought is if that's what you enjoy go for it.

Dutch played plenty of golf and was good enough at it to earn a few bucks playing casual acquaintances he met on the golf course in On Top of the World Ocala.
