This picture is from last August 2nd at the first Scotia Tournament in years. My team placed second and had a great time. The teams were young out there! Right now I am still on the injured reserve list. Dr. Lyell has not cut me open yet to repair the torn cartilage in my wrist. He let me know that I am looking at a 3 month recovery time after the surgery. I certainly don't want to miss out on league!
It has been a really frustrating injury as I can not swing a bat or golf club. And yet I have all this time off. I have been going to the gym and doing what weights I can without turning my wrist. I have been trying to play Basketball, but not having the wrist to push off with leaves me with just a left handed game. Not pretty.
Here are some of the players who will be on my Senior League Team this year. Last years returnees: Dudley Walters, Steve Ritter, Dave Damme, Pat Moore, Tony Hernandez, Bill Landowski, Walt Vance, Chris Beechel, Mike Newman and John Parker. (JP was on the DL last year.) I am hoping to add the following: Chuck Kirsher, Carlos Avelar (Both played year before), Ronnie Webb, Jamie Robertson, Ron denHeyer, Ed Fregoso and John Egerer. That is a pretty good lineup of players.
But first up in April is the Blue Lake Wood Bat League, where I will hopefully play for Tomaso's again. Then For Tomaso's in in the Arcata League and R-Co in the Eureka Metal Bat League. My SAC team will do tournaments, in the valley, metal bat and fast pitch.
In the near future, I will be trying to organize a hard ball league and will have a calling out for adult players in the next month or so.
