|No, this isn't the zoo, it's Comerica Park, home of the Detroit Tigers Baseball Team|
|Comerica Park, but I still call it Tiger Stadium!|
My brother always preferred slow pitch baseball, so didn't play for our school teams. But, we had a nice church league where he played. My dad was coach, and I was the score keeper. There was a women's church league, and my Dad organized a girl's team from our church. When I say Women's League, I mean just that. Our team would arrive, mostly middle and young high school players, and the other team would arrive, the women driving, bringing their kids, and smoking cigarettes. It was a bit daunting....yeah, we were out of our league. I usually pitched or played short stop. If I remember correctly, we lost most of our games, but it was fun. We definitely improved over the season, and our coach had the patience of a saint...only positive comments. Thank goodness

Yes, Baseball has been a wonderful part of my life. Here is a picture of my dad and his family, he is the boy on the left with the bat and ball in his hand!
I would love to hear about your baseball memories...did you play, did you go the the ball park, what team did you follow, etc.?
Hope you have a great week! Play Ball!!!
