It's been too long since we played some OPB. Even though there's no possibility of being able to play Sunday baseball right now, I really miss having the camaraderie we shared -- as well as the occasional heated argument -- and the excitement of high-scoring games. I hope someday we'll be able to bring the league back to its former glory.

At least the A's are destroying the league in an historic manner to keep us occupied.

It is probably no surprise that I, the admin of the forums, am the first to discover this post! It is also probably no surprise that it took nearly three years for that to happen. It is incontrovertible that you jinxed the A's pretty hard-core, given the date of your post.

I think doing OPB again would be cool, but I don't know who would have the time and energy to try to build up a critical mass of people who will show up regularly enough. Several of us are old and married now.

As an alternative (and I know it's not baseball), but the SF pickup softball folks are really cool and they have kept their thing going for a long time. Scott and I have made it to quite a few games over the years including a couple months ago. I definitely plan to go to more. It's similar enough to baseball that it's still fun. They also end up getting two games in and start promptly at 9 am on Saturdays, usually at Balboa Park if they can get it. Their site is at http://www.anythreewords.com/pickupsoftball/.

I also can't believe this board is still functioning... you can safely bet it has all kinds of security holes. Anyway, thanks for your dogged dedication three years ago, Nick. Smile
