“When they start the game, they don’t yell, ‘work ball.’ They say, ‘play ball.’”
Willie Stargell, 1981
And play they did.
“The Big Red Machine” rolled out to Idle Hour Park the other night for a softball battle with the mighty Braves. The Reds and the Braves are part of the 11-and-12-year-old girls’ softball league, and it was a heck of a game.
The Reds were led by pitcher Elizabeth Medley, and the Braves by pitcher Anne Tayler Redmon.
