The Texans Win Again

This past weekend, Stumpy’s team, “The Texans”, won the 70+, age division championship, in a senior softball tournament held in Mustang, Oklahoma. The tournament was supposed to have started this past Thursday morning, but great storms and three and one-half inches of rain postponed the start until Friday afternoon.

A soggy field, with temperatures in the 40’s, along with a 40 MPH wind greeted the players. Stumpy, who hit .667 for this one, said, “I have been playing ball all of my life and this was the wettest, coldest, windiest tournament that I have ever played in!” And he added, “We were so bundled up I believe it affected our play.”

Stumpy didn’t let “being bundled up” affect his hitting as he drives a high pitch for a base hit.

Bad conditions aside, “The Texans” won their third straight tournament running their record to 15 wins and 5 losses. Next up is Baytown, Texas on April 25.
