Fenway, once upon a time!

I went to see my old slo pitch softball team play the other night to watch my #3 son who  plays for them, you know... how good could they be with out at least one harry.

   He started about 7 years ago in right center at age 17. At that time I was the player coach and my #1 son roamed left center. I needed another guy to play outfield and although he was strictly baseball at the time he was willing to help out. He got hooked after he learned how to hit a ball lobed at 20 mph crossing the plate vertically. His assessment was, “this is like T Ball all over again, you start and end with T Ball!”

My older son moved had some knee issues and moved on to other things and I got just too old to play at a high enough level to enjoy it.

I was never a star but I had good lateral range and was a decent enough middle infielder in my day. Later I moved to third and then made the progression to left before finishing up at 1B.

One of the younger guys who now coaches the team, said’ “hey coach, you want to give me a couple of innings at first?”


I politely turned him down with thanks but… not tonight.

Silently I said,” I limped from the car to the field on my bursitic left knee and you really think I can be an asset at first?” I’d need slip on cleats and glove the size of a rowboat!


It got me thinking, I played ball from age 7 to age 57, I played every position on the field,

My Dad was my coach when I was a kid and I coached my four boys in various levels of the game. Slo pitch softball is not fast pitch hardball but the game is basically the same.

You have to throw the ball, hit the ball and catch the ball.


Sons 3 & 4 covered the left side of the infield together on their HS team

This game is a connector between fathers and sons, between friends and adversaries. I remember at age 14, striking out the kid that bullied me…twice in one game. The first on a swinging fast ball around his eyes and the second on a called third strike on a curve ball that broke over the heart of the plate. After the game he came over to me, punched me on my sore right arm and said, “you got me twice but never again, nice pitching kid” We were more or less friends after that.

And then there was a high school game in which I struck out four times without even a foul ball to my name while my teammates scored 14 runs on about 20 hits. My coach came over to me and said, “Dave, this is a team game and your team won so stop sulking and celebrate a TEAM win.”    

That lesson has been repeated by me to kids and teammates a hundred times over the years.


I watched the softball game with some other “mature” former players,

our version of grumpy old men,

and we critiqued the plays as the game went on. All wishing we could still put on the cleats and drive one over the left fielders head or beat out that grounder to short or turn the blooper to shallow right into two bases or take that shot down the third base line with a slick backhand and fire off balance to first for the out…

But we are left with our geriatric conversation, “what team are we playing tonight? I can’t read the uniform from here. Blue hasn’t got one call right yet (sorry Lanz) or, where was he throwing that? Or when did you get the other knee done and how long is the rehab??

Or… how’s the ticker since the last ream job.

What’s closer, the port o john or the woods?”

Or what inning is this? The mosquitoes are viscous here tonight.

 Are you guys up for beers and cigars at my house after the game?


We can bundle these memories for a big savings cause it’s a;; about bundles these days… the fresh cut grass, the sounds of bat on ball or ball on glove, the cheers for a good play and the handshakes after a hard-fought game. The sun in your eyes on a fly ball, the “look what I found” liner in your glove, the take out slide at second, the ace from left field to the plate for the out, the diving stab at a soft liner in left,,, that circus over the shoulder catch in center, It’s true that I’d rather watch football on TV but give me a live baseball game at any level anywhere anytime. Take me out to the ball game.


Yes it’s also true, oldharry has slowed up a bit, I still can strike out the youngsters with my arsenal of whiffle ball pitches but back yard rules don’t involve running the bases…it’s the equalizer, it makes me just as fast…


And what’s better, faster or slower?



Thanks for stopping by.

If losing a shootout to rival Montreal wasn't bad enough...Then Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask a bit of a tantrum, that got embarrassing quick...

I hope the only thing he hurt was his pride!

Tags: NFL Robert Griffin III Cleveland Browns Politics Rush Limbaugh Rick Santorum Religion God Road Head Moaning The Beeze Peyton Manning

Well, my weekend had started out pretty damn good...Friday night the wife and I went to dinner...We both had steak, because that fish on Friday thing is crap...Just an old bullshit deal the Church worked out with the fishermen to help increase the sales of fish...Then we saw the movie "Safe House"...Pretty good...I liked it...Kept you wondering, and had some good action...Then on the way home I talked the wife into giving me some road head...Always good!

But after about an hour after wee got home, something happened...Something went wrong...Twitter blew up with the news that the Washington Redskins had traded 3 first round picks, and a 2nd round pick to the Rams, to move up to the number two slot in the draft...Locking up the ability to draft Robert Griffin III...My dream of seeing this was crushed

Kid looked good in Brown and Orange...

I was pissed...Then rumors came out that the Browns had actually been in the mix...Offering almost as much...But honestly, I don't believe anything Adam Schefter says...Guy just throws shit against the wall and waits to see if it sticks...He's wrong at least 75% of the time! So I'm skeptical about how much the Browns really dug into the trade talks...

That said, looking at all the holes the Browns have to fill, and the fact that GM Tom Heckert said he doesn't plan on making a splash in free agency, maybe it's better they didn't give up this year's 1st and 2nd, along with their next two 1st rounders...(Yeah, I'm trying to be positive)...

Then of course we have had to deal with the Peyton Manning circus...Christ, early in the week the news broke that the Colts were going to release Manning, and all the fuck-stains at ESPN acted as if they were shocked by this...We all knew this was going to happen. Why is everyone going bat-shit about it?

Then the "Bounty-gate" talk has continued...First, I'm sick of everything semi-scandalous event, or topic having "gate" added to the end of it...This is all Nixon's fault...Ever since Watergate, we have had to put up with this...But fuck-heads, it took place in the Watergate Hotel...Gate doesn't mean bad, or dirty, or scandal...It was just part of the hotels name...So knock off all the "gate" shit!

Second, fuck all this pussy talk about this bounty shit...Monstrous men, playing a violent game, having their coach offer them money to take the violence up a notch...How and why is it so shocking? What shocking is it took this long for some one to actually talk about it...

Now I'm going to get into the political waters...Always dangerous, I know...I've avoided politics for awhile...I've been pretty much sick of all these dolts! But I have to speak up about this Rick Santorum idiot...

Listen, I understand and I can respect that there are people who's political views can be some-what shaped by their faith...But this guy is out there constantly talking about religion...Nothing about the economy...Nothing about foreign policy...Nothing about the environment...Nothing about the cost of education going up, while the quality of education is going down...It's just all about his Christianity...Are you running for President of the United States, or High Priest?

Santorum said that Kennedy's speech about separation of Church and State made him want to puke...Then I see some idiot bitch on TV saying she likes him because he believes in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights...No he doesn't! If he did he'd be all for Separation of Church and State...This country was founded Freedom of Religion...Not 'freedom to be Christian and if you aren't we're going to force our beliefs on you.'

And then of course there was big, fat, Rush Limbaugh calling a young woman a slut, and a prostitute...Rush and Rick don't think women's contraception should be covered by insurance or medicare/medicaid...Nor should having their tubes tide...Yet it's okay for a vasectomy to be covered...It's okay for Limbaugh's Viagra prescription to be covered...And yes, all those old timers have Viagra covered by Medicare/Medicaid...

Rush likes to stand on some moral high ground...Really, guy who has been divorced 3 times...He's on wife #4, yet he's fathered no kids...Were they using contraception? Has Rush been shooting blanks all these years? Maybe...Could be a side effect from all those years abusing Oxy!

It's odd, these two guys are a couple of these fuckers who say Government is too big, and needs to back off...But then they want to tell people what they can and can't do in their bedrooms...They turn around and say, 'You two women can't love each other, can't muff dive, and can't get married.' Or they say, 'Of course have sex with your wife, but no birth control allowed.' Or, 'Sorry you had a fucked up family member who sexually abused you, and got you pregnant, but you aren't allowed to abort it.' Yet none of these fuckers are standing in line to adopt the unwanted children they want to force women to have...

And fuck off if you to bash me for being pro-choice...Sorry, I don't believe some suit should be making choices for all women because of his faith...And while I believe that, clearly I'm pro-life...I got these three kids running around making me crazy don't I!

If your religious, if you have faith in a higher power, fucking awesome...But your faith shouldn't be trying to dictate government policy for a country made up all kinds of different faiths, and people who don't attach themselves to a particular faith...

And the only bit of God I want to hear about in the bedroom is this...

BEEZE 2016!

Have a week...

Later, The Beeze.
