So Hurricane (or whatever) Sandy made clear what sometimes lingers – fall ball is over! The end of October/beginning of November usually involves a lot of attempts to get in the last few games. We play on wet fields in cold weather, with depleted teams that dont want to be there. But this year, with probably 70% of my umpire-area affected by the storm, all action came to an abrupt stop – as it should have.
So now I clean, cull and pack up the gear, and settle into rec volleyball and, maybe, a little bit of youth soccer training – and the holidays, and snow, and then back on the field before we know it.
