It's crazy to find out how many people still play the game. When I was in college, and Title IX caused the axing of our program, I made sure I enjoyed every last minute of the bus rides, plane rides, minutes on the bench, minutes on the mound, everything. That way, when it ended, I had closure. I knew the end was coming.
Then I come home, and people start asking you to play in their leagues. I never knew just how many leagues and people played. I had just assumed things ended when you were done with school or affiliated ball.
I played for about 5 years after college ball was over, but have taken a break for about the last year and a half. Getting married and buying a fixxer upper took all my weekend time. Ive played basketball on weeknights in a league, but that was it.
But starting in September, Im slated to start playing again. Looking forward to it. We're the Expos! Should be pretty good. Most of the guys played ball at the college level, and one was a 4th rounder of the A's a few years back.
