All ages needed on the fastpitch ball diamond, even Boomers

THREE BOOMERS STILL HANGING AROUND THE BALL PARK - You can find some pretty good company at the ball field as I did at the Raymond Angulo Memorial Fastpitch Tournament in Corona, Sept. 3-4. No better friends than Dave Meltz, 66, left, myself (age unknown), and Neil Jones, 64. Both Dave and Neil are still pitching fastpitch, primarily for masters teams, but they don't hesitate to butt heads with the 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s kids and grandkids. I, of much sounder mind, retired 16 years a go much to the delight and relief of my teammates. Photo By Ginni Jones, Neil's wife / Sept. 3, 2016

CORONA, Calif. – Both Dave Meltz and Neil Jones are still pitching fastpitch, primarily for masters teams in So. Calif. In the 1970s, they battled each other in Wisconsin, where both grew up before Dave settled in So. Calif., and Neil in Las Vegas.

Now they square off in various masters tournaments and in the So. Calif. Independent Fastpitch League (SCIFL) Masters Division.
