Seattle Residential: I Do That

Green Lake Little League

It's baseball season again and Green Lake has Little League. My son played on the RUG team (Roosevelt, U-District, GreenLake) team 20 years ago. Today I watched a game with my grandson playing. He'll soon be 14. Hard to believe.

Loren (#22) plays for the Northwest team and today they beat the RUG boys. Loren pitched scoreless two innings of the game and he got on base a few times too.

Twenty years ago I met the parents of two players and have since had 9 transactions with realted members of the family. There is noting quite like enjoying an afternoon in the sun and watching the kids playing their hearts out.
