The Senior Softball King traded to Legends for Tim Ash.
In a complicated three team deal involving waiver wires, a six pack of Beer and Humboldt Classic Senior Softball League offices, Richard Marks (AKA the Senior Softball King) has been traded by the Relics to the Legends for Tim Ash. "I had a great run with the Relics!" When Marks was reminded he only played for them for 1 year, "I lasted a whole year with someone?" Legend coach Bill Hicks had this to say, "We were looking for someone who could field , hit and run. They were all taken, so we settled on Marks."

Tim is a better pitcher than me and more of an asset on defense. He does drink a higher class of beer also I might add.
