Tami on the Softball Field in 1990 (?) #3 -- Post 625 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 decorating the Seaver family Plymouth Voyager van before a road trip to Buena Park in the summer of 1990 or 1991.  Some of her teammates names are on the passenger side window.  We bought the van in about 1986 because our girls were getting bigger, and we were working with two softball teams at the time.  We used the van to take 5 or 6 girls to the tournaments.  The van eventually died in 1998 after 12 years of great service.  

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.
