About My Softball Career

11 years ago I created: The Oakland Patriots. My team consisted of 9 players at all times and played against other unofficial teams around town. We didn’t do anything official, it was just for fun. I never personally wanted to play in a real league that’s run by some big corporation, just not my thing.

There are 3 different kinds of softball and we played every kind, but generally fast-pitch softball. Slow-pitch softball was the most popular, but not in our little circle. The difference being when fast-pitching, you wind up the ball rotating your arm counter-clock wise to create momentum. Base stealing was permitted, and we had a lot of fun. My team was disbanded due to life circumstances; Paul the main pitcher moved away for work, Natasha moved away for school, Ben sprained his ankle and never recovered. After enough incidence within my team I decided to just disband it, as I was starting to get bored of it as well, but man do I miss it now. If I wasn’t 52 years old with little time on my plate and a little more motive, I would definitely strive to re-create a softball team.

Now I write music, I write stories and my new hobby is this blog. I plan to talk about softball and a bit of hockey, as well as give shout-outs to some of my favorite and memorable players. It’s always nice to remember your past, right?

I also spend a lot of time with my family. My son, 14 years old, happens to have similar hobbies as me so we can relate on a lot of things, which is something I feel blessed for because I see most other father-son relationships to be nowhere near as open and whole-hearted. I actually taught him how to play guitar; he’s 14 and shreds like an expert. How many parents out there get to play music with their kids? Yeah, I’m blessed.

Well, that’s about all I have to share about myself. I could start talking about how I met my wife (I met her in school actually) or I could talk about my career, but I don’t want to bore you too much. If you have any questions or suggestions feel free to contact me.
