The first image this prompt conjured up was a photo of my dad that I think I probably first saw just a few months ago. At least, I never remember seeing it growing up.
When my mom and dad first got married, and my dad was working at St. Regis Paper Mill in Escambia County, the mill had a baseball team. I gather it was a community league, and they played teams from other businesses, or maybe even other divisions within the mill.
I looked up on newspapers.com, to see if I could find any articles about a game in which my dad might have been mentioned. No luck there (unless they misspelled the last name), but I did find an article about a St. Regis employee golf tournament where he was listed. I remember him going to play golf a few times, and once or twice I went with him, when I was in elementary school. For me, golfing was just a lot of walking. Other than that, I really don’t remember him being involved in sports while I was growing up.
It’s interesting to see how active he was before I came along!
