Although I don’t go so far as to attend Larry’s softball games, I’m very happy to cheer from afar. So let me announce that of all the over-70 softball tournament teams in Northern California, from Fresno to the Oregon border, Larry’s team, Direct Floors, is #9. There are many teams, but only the top 15 are listed on the honor roll.
Some teams have classy monikers like “Raptors” or “Coyotes.” But not Larry’s; Direct Floors is their sponsor. At least it’s not Chico’s Bail Bonds.
Like Larry, many of the team members are witty. When passing out decals, one of the men suggested that they have their wives iron them on their caps.
“Are you kidding me?” one replied. “My wife thinks iron is an industrial metal.” Larry couldn’t have said it better himself.
