Softball Gentleman
I and five of my teammates stopped at a Denny's in Myrtle Beach after finishing the SPA Eastern Nationals this past Sunday. I noticed one our our players talking to a couple of men at another table, one much older than the other. They talked for about five minutes and when he returned to our table he told us that was the sponsor of the old Ritch's Superior team and one of his players. He didn't remember their names so I walked over and introduced myself. The sponsor was Coy Honeycutt and the player was Charles Wright. I had met Charles when he played with Hollis but he didn't remember me.
You could tell that Mr Honeycutt really enjoyed reliving the games from the late 80's. He seemed like a great guy, too bad we all have to grow old. I enjoyed talking with him and Charles about player and teams from that era. Charles owns a restaurant in Columbus, Ga and "doesn't have time for senior softball".

Charles was one of the best players in the country and played on some of the best teams ever, including Mr Honeycutt's Ritch's Superior team, Elite Coatings and Steeles. It is what I consider the Golden Age of softball.
