Thank you Bill. Can you provide me with any West Coast contacts for Womens Baseball?  I need to look for closer playing options. Since I turned 20, I am in a different group age wise and most play is being geared towards younger players.

Thanks for the warm welcome Bill - I am still feeling my way in cyberspace - my main contribution so far is a weekly to bi-weekly blog at leelowenfish.com    Will be back to you soon. Precious time of year with baseball the main news in sports but football training camps lurk. Whoever said "baseball is what this country used to be, football is what it has become" certainly said a mouthful.  YIBF (Yours In Baseball Forever), Lee
