  • Baseball and softball keeping us busy

    Track, tennis and other spring sports are in full swing, but the sports that keep me the busiest are softball and baseball.

    I am always grateful to the coaches who send me the information following the events and to Jim Swinford who helps me out a lot with baseball.
