Windsor Park Softball took a little time before the game to say goodbye to last year's MVP Joe Torres. Joe is heading to North Carolina next week to begin a new phase in his life as he furthers his career in pediatric medicine. He's an excellent ballplayer and a fine young man and we all wish him and his bride the best of luck.
As for the main event, well, we got in a 6 inning game as Father's Day and other things forced several players to leave early. Big Joe subbed for Mo who's still on the DL but his team fell to the Bazooka Joe's 8-2. There was an interesting array of players on hand, almost like Old Timers Day which happened to be going on at Yankee Stadium that same day.
Mike W and Tony made their season debuts. Efrain, after a long absence was there along with his friend Juan, Danny and Kenny arrived with their sons Andrew and Doug respectively for a Father's Day outing. Doug was a onetime regular with WP so it was good to see him again. Roque came with Leo and nephew Fausto who made jaws drop with a homer that rivaled Aaron Judge for launch speed. Arun, Noah, John and myself were there as usual. The biggest surprise was the arrival of Jeff after about a year and a half recuperating from back injuries. He claimed to not be 100% and then went out and pitched an excellent game. He said he'll make every attempt to come more regularly. Great seeing him again as well.
The cold weather is finally behind us so let me urge you guys again to respond to the attendance survey and make the effort to come out and play.

Good Luck, Joe!
