Hey Jim, spoke to Darian (park director) this past week. He said that there should be no problems. The city granted $250,000 to upgrading the park and tennis courts. The concession may not be completely renovated, but we can play. Thanks

I may have shared this before: In June, 2013, I almost died twice in six days due to acute pancreatitis. That occurred one month after gall bladder surgery, wherein, gall stone material fell into my bile duct, causing the pancreatitis.

Anyway, after two days of being unconscious, I awoke for just a few seconds. My wife was holding my hand. I opened my eyes, looked at her and said "baby, I love to play softball!" and immediately passed out again for another whole day.

Needless to say, still trying to live that down!!

Thanks, Omar, you are too kind. You and Swing certainly gave thoughtful responses. My wife tells me I talk way too much, so I think I have the communication/team part down pretty well! I have also served as a Baptist Pastor for over 35 years, so I think that helped.

To be honest, we have not won a lot of games over the years, but were competitive most of the time. As primarily a AA team, it was always an uphill battle against AAA and Major teams a majority of time (at least until Dalton).

Winning for me has never been the most important or ONLY reason to play Senior Softball. So, I just let the chips fall where they may!!

Thanks, Dan and Mike. Really good points.

I have been in senior softball for 15 years--managing/coaching. Most of those years were as non-sponsored teams or partially sponsored. I usually supplied uniforms and everyone chipped in for tourney fees and had their own personal expenses.
As a result, my primary concern was in trying to be fair to everyone-playing time, rotation, etc. Deserved or not, I had the reputation at times of not really caring about winning enough. Actually had players quit after telling me that.

What do others say about winning at any cost?
