In Appreciation of Senior Softball
Newcomer to the Board here. I apologize if this post is lengthy. I just want to express my appreciation for the sport of Senior Softball. I grew up watching my dad play senior ball back when "senior softball" was in its infancy in the early 1980s. Now I'm in my first year of playing senior ball myself in Dallas, TX. Thankfully, our league starts at 45+ so I barely qualify. I could still play with the "youngsters" but I have grown tired of their attitudes and big mouths. You can imagine what a great surprise my first year in senior ball has been. The quality of ball is pretty good. But even more importantly, what a great group of guys! I joke around with and get along with opposing players just as well as my own teammates. I have found senior softball players to be classy, good sportsmen, and great competitors who still have a will to win, but don't let that get in the way of the main objective of having fun. I just wish my dad was still around to see me following in his senior softball footsteps. In closing, thanks to all of you senior softball fellas for creating a wonderful atmosphere that I hope to participate in for many years to come.
