Sure, it may be a little warm for softball in August in Arizona, but by starting batting practice at 7:30 a.m., it’s only 100 or so by the time we complete our pick-up games. Come by the Field of Dreams any Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday morning and beat the heat with us. See our website for more information about our program (www.sunlakessoftball.com).
We recently lost one of the true pioneers of Sun Lakes Softball. Jim Kilmartin’s recent passing leaves a large hole in the heart and soul of our program. He played in our league for 22 years and continued to help out down at the field even after he hung up his cleats two years ago. RIP, Jimmy.
Like many Sun Lakes residents, a lot of our players head north to cooler climes for the summer. Did you ever wonder how they keep in touch with those of us who stay behind? Answer: They touch base every once in a while! Okay, one more! What did the softball glove say to the ball? Answer: Catch ya later! Till next month.
