Reconnecting With Your Past

Posted by Tom Locke on April 12th, 2018 filed in Life, Sports ... All Sorts

During the first week in April this year, I had the opportunity to have breakfast with my old fastball coach who is 93 years young, ambulatory and sharp as a tack.

What he did not know was that, in addition to his son, I also invited to breakfast two other players from our ball team who played for him during the 60’s and early 70’s.  He was both surprised and appreciative.

We then let him know that in September of 2019 we were going to assemble all the living members of our Ontario Championship team to celebrate the 50th anniversary of our win.  So he now has the goal of of making sure he is there to reconnect with all the players he helped mold into upstanding and successful men.

The response that our organizing committee got from our fellow team members was outstanding with many commenting how great it is going to be to get together for a joyous occasion as opposed to a celebration of life for a dearly departed.

The fact that we can jointly get together to celebrate an impressionable milestone in our lives is a legacy in itself.
