Flip Flop Flying

Softball

with 3 comments

So, from Major League Baseball to Class A Minor League Baseball to Milwaukee Parks and Recreation League softball. Just around the corner, under the flight path of General Mitchell International Airport, a bunch of Wisconsinites sucked down beers, smoked cigs, and hit, caught, and threw a big yellow ball until a-team-I-don’t-know-the-name-of beat the Guerrillas 13-6. Tomorrow, I’ll be standing in the baseball department of Modell’s Sporting Goods, watching dads buying baseball gloves for their kids.

    welcome to midwest usa craig, where someone is playing baseball every night during the summer ;)

    if you happen to make it to southwest missouri (springfield) on your way to st. louis, let me know… i can offer a place to stay as well as a decent minor league game to go and watch.. or a minor league soccer game perhaps.
