  • Two more days to go...Saturday is our Early Bird Tournament, where we'll get to play 4 games that don't count, but that get us ready for the season. Sunday night, the real games begin! My team has players from age 19 to 59. This will be my 8th season as a player, and 7th as a player/manager.

    It doesn't matter if we win or lose...well, it does, but it doesn't. My first year managing, the team went 1-19. Two years ago, we went 16-4 and won a championship. I had as much fun both seasons, the winning was just a little more satisfying. We mostly just love to play.

    This year, I will play on Sunday nights, Monday nights, and Wednesday nights, 2 games each night, and will play from this Sunday through the end of October, about 150 games in all between the 3 teams. I'll keep the player stats for all 3 teams, and will send out game recaps to everyone when I get home after the games and report the scores on-line to the league. I am known as "the Midnight Rambler" because of my colorful recaps that usually come out at midnight, or later. I'll get up at 5:00 the next morning and go to work. Sleep is overrated, is my motto.

    The anticipation for these first games is growing - I love to play. I plan to keep playing until I am at least 80. Maybe by the time I'm in my 70's, I'll join a seniors (over 50) league. Until then, I like to play with the youngsters - it keeps me sharp.

    Play Ball!
