This year I reluctantly played on a recreational softball league with my coworkers. It’s not something I wanted to do but I joined anyways. I played a few games knowing it would be a great way to connect with my coworkers and get a bit of exercise.
Let me start off by telling you why there was reluctance to join the team. This goes back to my childhood and our local Little League baseball system.
The baseball field was basically in our backyard. I could look over our fence and see the baseball field. The concession stand. The playground equipment. It was a wonderland.
Until I joined the baseball team. Then it became a place of dread.
I’ll be the first to admit. I wasn’t the best ball player. No siree. I pretty much stunk.
