No Condition for Old Ball Players

baseballThat was ridiculous. Whose idea was it to hold a slo-pitch tournament outdoors on March 22?

I've just returned from a day of slo-pitch at Diamond Beach at Centennial Park. They called this a sno-pitch tourney, but they should have named it the ice bowl. The diamonds were covered by a sheet of ice making it rather difficult to get any traction. As I said, it was ridiculous, and I'm just happy I escaped unscathed.

And no, we didn't win the tournament, either. We were eked out in the playoffs by a single run. I'm putting the glove away until the temp hits positive figures.

lol, did it even feel like spring? The Calendar says it is and it should at least start showing signs of it

Other than the fact it was freezing cold and icy enough that we should have worn skates, it was nice to be playing ball again.

You should have seen my penguin run from first to second.
