Last weekend I was the keynote speaker at the
Reunion for the All American Girls Professional
Baseball League in San Diego.  Tommy and I
were able to have a night out together and we
enjoyed it so much.  These ladies are great!  I
have met some of them in the past, but since
they played in the 1940's-1950's, they are all in
their 70's, 80's and 90's now.  As the pictures of
their teams were shown on the screen, I could
hear them mention names of their teammates. 
It's funny, because that's how I feel about my
college teammates and my USA teammates.  I
know that when I'm that age, I'll still have
all the wonderful memories of when we played
together! I was so honored to join these ladies
and truly am thankful for the opportunities they
paved the way for athletes like myself!

Here are some pictures of the night:
