#52Ancestors in 52 Weeks: Teams

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!


About Taminar

When I grow up, I want to make movies and write books. Now in my 50s, I wonder if I'll ever really accomplish the dreams of my youth. I have made two short films, one for a college film-making class, the other for an MTV-sponsored contest. I have written short plays that have been produced, and a few short stories and reviews that have been published. I also perform and direct for community theatre. My working life has included stints in local TV news, public relations, retail management and cashier, and for a couple of years, I made the rides go at Walt Disney World. I have two cats and a husband.
