Impressive show for the young'n
I attended the Sparker fastpitch tournament in Denver to watch my granddaughter play. Hundreds of teams, huge amounts of fans, parents and college coaches there to recruit.
During the all star games I was shocked to see one of our senior players putting on a homerun show for the girls. Bill Gateley (homerun Bill) was blasting balls out of the park to the cheers of players and parents alike. It was very cool to how those girls see that us ‘old farts’ can still bomb out a 400ft shot. Many in the stands did not even know there was senior softball much as we can well we can still hit. Even thought Bill is only 55, way old in the eyes of most of the girls, it was great press to even the small amount of folks there in Denver.
Speaking of fastpitch, I would ask us all to help support college and youth softball in your area. Fun fast and worth the time.
