Well, they aren't famous yet, but we'll do our bit. My daughter Maria's softball team, the Purple Dragons, played a spirited game today against the Red Cobras at Pinewood School in lovely Mounds View. Maria batted in the 2 hole and made the most of her opportunity, getting 4 hits in as many plate appearances. Not much to report on the fielding front but the team looks pretty good. They are playing in a 3-team in-house league for the Mounds View Softball Association, so there will likely be further grudge matches against the Red Cobras and the other team in the league, the oddly monikered Blue Tacos.
It's going to be a fun summer, but your humble correspondent thinks he has half the infield dirt of Ramsey County on his shoes right about now. But when you want to know what's going on in 7-10 in-house fastpitch softball in the Mounds View School District, this is where you'd better be looking.
