Say it ain't so...
Hey guys,
AC Linde, most recently and identifiably of/from the Old A's
in Northern California has parted company with his signature team.
I don't think I have to tell you how synonymous with National Titles
the Old A's were/are in the last decade plus.
I spent most of my career playing against them
and measuring my game with the level that they had achieved.
But, I digress.
A great softball team is identified most easily by the character and caliber
of it's defense and the pitcher is the vanguard, the point guy of it all.
In many ways, as he goes, they go.
So for the Old A's all these years.
AC was the leader of the best, most decorated Senior Softball team of the last decade plus and it's sad
just like with Joe Montana and Brett Favre
that he won't be ending his career with them.
It was his grit, his focus and confidence under fire
that was most influential to all those years of Old A dominance.
Bravo, you old matador.
Nobody did it better
and best of luck with whom/wherever you land.

Joe, I understand that AC, Al Oxley and Gary Tryhorn were going to move up to the 65s with the California Blue Jays. Like you, I enjoyed playing with and against AC over the last few years. I had no idea he was so "old"! Best of luck to all 3 gentlemen at the "next level". LL

Thanks joe for all the kind thoughts, I had the good fortune to have great players behind me, there have been so many of them over the last 10 years to many to name but they know who they are, without them it wouldn't have been possible to win so many nationals. I will always be a "Old A"
Thanks for the kind words Mr Lopez but I wont be playing for the Blue Jays this year. They are putting together a super team and I wish them the best.

"I aint done yet" see you somewhere on the field.
