And Now For Something Completely Personal...Part 1
I retired from playing softball this week.
That may not seem like a monumental event to everyone, but for me it is right up there with most of the other milestones of my life.
It was simply time to move on. Yes, I was the starting pitcher. And yes, I had the best year of my career with the fewest walks I've ever issued. But the next oldest person on the team was easily young enough to be my daughter, i wore a hat to cover my bald head, and I had to stretch for an hour after each game.
Like Roger Clemens, I'm open to offers for next season. But unless someone steps up Steinbrenner-like with serious cash, I'm not likely to be back.
I'm expecting a big ceremony before the first game next season to retire my number.
