Softball is life

Sorry, but I’m just now catching up to the rest of the planet and submersing myself into the world of Ted Lasso. So, that’s the first thing that came to mind for a title. Apologies to Dani Rojas.

The other day I had a random memory about sitting at the kitchen table and helping my Dad work on the schedule for the church softball league. He was an umpire for the league, and somehow–though he never went to church–was in charge of a lot of the organization. Maybe because he wasn’t affiliated with any one of the churches? I know he was obsessed with being an umpire.

I wondered if the league still exists, because I always see softball, golf, and other trophies in the lobbies of churches, but they are from the 70s and 80s. I don’t know if this is the same thing, but I found that there is a Church League on the Bangor Parks & Rec site.

The other thing that I pondered on was putting together the schedule. I don’t remember how many teams were in the league, but I feel like there were a lot. Dad got me to create a balanced schedule and playoff bracket, and I remember it being a bit of work. (This is the part where I blather on about technology killing our brains, because you can just pop the info into a website and get a computer to do it for you in seconds.)

I don’t really know where I was going with this, but it gave me a chance to look through old pictures. So, that’s nice.

Have a great week.
