    Steve, thank your for your kind words. I was happy to help and am pleased that your dad and Tom – two of the state’s greatest fastpitch players – are finally getting what they so richly deserve: induction into the Minnesota Softball Hall of Fame!

    Thank you and the Hall of Fame for recognizing my father, Walt Nelson, Tom, and their respective teammates with this honor. The article and photo are priceless.

    I wish my father could be present to celebrate this accomplishment with his family, friends, teammates, and the other induces. As my brother so eloquently stated we as a family are indebted to you and all those responsible for bringing recognition to my dad’s contributions to the game he so enjoyed playing!

    I will be attending the ceremony and look forward to having the opportunity to meet and thank you personally for your support and efforts in this endeavor.

    With warmest regards,

    Bob Nelson

    Bob, thank you for your kind words. I was fortunate to pitch against your dad at the old ball field in Hampton next to the Black Stallion bar & restaurant as a 17-year-old, and first hand got to appreciate what a talented pitcher he was. I am happy to be of help in getting your dad into the Hall of Fame. But as a family, your contribution is what made it possible. My only regret is that your dad is not here to partake in his richly deserved honor. He was one of the best! Enjoy the ceremony, and please take pictures to share. I’d love to post them on my blog.
