Tami on the Softball Field in 1990 (?) -- Post 623 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

I can't help it, I can't do a wordless post! I found some more family photos hiding in Linda's family photo boxes. This is one of my favorite photographs:

Both of our daughters played Bobby Sox softball when they were between 9 and 14 years old.  Lori was a pitcher and Tami was a catcher.  The softball field was a half mile up our nearby main street.  Linda managed a team for several years and I coached.  The girls made the All-Star team almost every year in their age-groupings.  After the regular season was over in June, there were All-Star tournaments in several levels.  Tami also played on a travel team for several years in the summer. It was a fun family activity in the spring and summer and provided some travel experiences.  

The photo above shows Tami playing catch with someone at  a softball field, perhaps in Buena Park, Califronia in Orange County where the regional finals were played, probably in the early summer of 1990 or 1991 (?).  Tami's uniform says "Chula Vista All Stars."  She was probably about 13 at the time.

These photos were scanned from photographs created from developed film prints and are not particularly sharp, but they are what we have!

Several times a year when our children were growing up, Linda sent photographs to her parents and brother in San Francisco. When her father died in 2002, her brother sorted out the photos and gave Linda the ones that were of our family and the ones interacting with them. They were given to us in a big box of stuff back in 2006, and we finally looked at them last year! I've started digitizing them for use in these Wordless Wednesday posts.

That is a great photo and a keeper. My 5 girls all played on softball teams when we lived in Wisconsin. When we moved to California we just couldn't find the same connection we had in a small farming town.
