Ink StainAnyone is welcome to submit a Guest Blog Entry to torontomike.com. I received the following entry earlier today.

My life is somewhat complete - too bad it's 35 years too late. With my son playing BBall tonight at Keelesdale Park where I used to play 35 or so years ago I was coaching 1st base & after the 1st inning I went the through vistor's dugout to get to ours when I thought I saw someone familiar. A coach on the York team whom I played with recognized me & we talked breifly. He married the hottest girl in grade 8 & all through high school & he said make sure you see Gloria in the stands during the game. As soon as I walked out of the dugout she saw me & came over & gave me the BEST KISS ever (next to my wife). I told her that I as many boys did, had a MAJOR crush on her throughout school & then she said "I had one on you as well". I didn't know.

I was a SHY kid.

I missed most of the next inning recollecting the past.

In my mind I hit for the cycle & also a Grand slam tonight.

p.s. we lost the game 10-8 (maybe due to my distraction)- but it was worth it.

Ahh...Keelesdale Park, I use to go watch the softball games there every night while I was living in that area. Sometimes I go back just to catch a game, great story, thanks for taking me back. I think I will check out a game there next week.

Actually we played hardball at the northeast corner (Eglinton & Blackcreek). I used to play there as well as Smythe Park too many years ago.
Lived at Jane-Eglinton area (went to Roselands school) until the early 80's & then moved.
Living in Bolton our team this year was mixed within the Toronto BBall Assoc. loop as well as teams from other areas (Newmarket, Thornhill, Bradford, etc.)
Too much travel. This is the last week of the season as we didn't qualify for playoffs.
