No organization has meant more to me than the BSL, a place where I have thrived in my love of the sport, played with and against some of the best people I have ever met, and fallen in love (sorry, Sean--the true love of my life!!) with the seemingly unlimited opportunities the BSL has opened up for me. I am honored to be counted among such great people, both alive and deceased, and mostly honored to share my love of softball with so many great people for so many years!
