Posted on 03/02/2014 10:44:06 AM PST by onedoug
Coaching HS baseball till family considerations made me leave it yet also made me realize that I was in the best shape a nearly 64 year old kid could be in.
Though it's tough to stay in baseball practice shape, as opposed to playing shape, with no good places for long-toss or hitting, least whiles by one's self. And I just haven't been able to find anyone willing or able to play consistently maybe twice a week.
Thus I was wondering if there might be some similar baseball fanatics near LA's Griffith Park area who might likewise take to the idea of getting in or staying in shape. Any roomy flat surface would do. It's really a great activity, and sortta makes you young again.
It would just be free form with no organization beyond the desire to just show up.
I've got some extra gloves and plenty of baseballs, and would quickly get a new fungo bat if this panned-out.
Thread or FReepmail me.
Thanks so much, and thank you Jim, for this opportunity.
Yeah, I knew you were just a kid. Seems like just yesterday you were still in school.
Good luck with your next adventure!
