Re: Icebox days
I tried something like that before..wasnt a run tho..we played a charity co-ed softball tourney. I was going to watch just for support, but ended up playing due to shortage of players. I think we finished in 3rd..man it was cold..temp under 10 degrees, strong winds coming off the lake..i froze my nads off.. i couldnt wait till it ended..was good for a good cause, but id have to think twice about that again.
