Memorial Day Weekend couldn’t have been better for a softball tournament at Main Park.
The weather was just about perfect. The games were thrilling. The level of enthusiasm contagious.
My daughters played softball for many years before they found other ways to occupy my time. LOL.
We did one year of travel, which was a huge time and money commitment. I can certainly appreciate the dedication of each and every family at the fields that weekend, with a special nod to the Mokena Blast parents who spent countless hours launching a three-day tournament with great success. Thirty-eight teams played 91 games. Amazing!
From the sounds coming from every corner of Main Park, everyone seemed to be having their own kind of blast. For a few days I photographed and reminisced about how despite all the hours I spent watching softball instead of doing something else, it was definitely worth it.
My older daughter is almost 15 and thinking about college. I wouldn’t trade those warm (and sometimes freezing) days and nights at the ball field for anything.
Happy summer everyone!
