    Thats usually the case, washed up old baseball players that thought they were good in high school. I enjoy it though, nothing else to do on a Tuesday night. I play church league, mens league, and some tournaments on the weekend every now and then. Before I got married I played almost every night of the week in different leagues and every single weekend in a tournament. Had alot of good times!

    It's always a good time, and when you live in a small town like I do, there's not much else to do during the week.

    Jim Rome is the sh!t and that softball guy video is hilarious. Reminds me of my brother, can barely pay his child support, but comes to the fields all decked out in the most expensive softball gear, and a bag loaded with $500 bats lol

    Softball thread?

    At first, I thought this was a conversation opener advocating the use of HCG while on cycle?

    I have played in a few leagues. Moved recently and haven't found anyone around here playing. I did get picked up for a baseball league recently, but after realizing its not like riding a bike to hit a 85 mpg fastball I ended up not playing.

    I love softball. Good times.

    faster than I could ever throw. had an arm when I was a kid, and disappointingly, went to the fair and was clocked at only 60mph. I was probably 13 or so....
