Another week of almost perfect softball weather and more player registrations are streaming in - could there be a connection?
Teams are warming up after the winter layoffs, and the scores are starting to show it! Nothing like this warmer weather to make the balls fly deeper, and the bats to dent less often. Excuses that the "sun got in my eyes" were just unacceptable. Finally, it is a part of our games.
