Kyle Miller (Hotlanta Softball League) sent you a message.
As most of the HSL members have heard by now, we will no longer be playing at Metro. As Kyle and I took in the news in shock, we also realized that this league will continue and become stronger.
As I looked out over the fields for what I realized what would probably be the last time, I knew I would miss Metro Softball Complex and the memories I had from there:
* Fulton Industrial Blvd, with it's strip clubs and unnecessary traffic lights from hell and the Purple Ladies taking their early morning jogs
* Stopping at the QT to load up on ice and seeing the other HSL members doing the same.
* The tireless workers from the strange guy taking money for parking to Larry the Field Guy who worked tirelessly for 20 years making those fields as playable as possible.
* The sideways glances at the posted rules stating no outside alcohol as we carted a full Bloody Mary bar into the park.
* The pauses during the games as we waited for the dust devils to crest out.
* Spending countless Sundays with the best people I could hope to know playing a game that I love to play
Metro fields were crap, but they were our crap. Some of my fondest memories come from that dust bowl. I may be one of the few, but I will miss Metro.
Now we will find a new home and make some new, great memories!!!
