Congratulations

Yes - another congratulations card! Yippee - so much good stuff going around!  I actually made this card the night before I left for vacation - I made TWO of them for the same occasion for two different people.

I have TWO friends being inducted into the CT Softball Hall of Fame this coming Sunday!!!

First is Carol Frattaroli.  Carol and I became friends when we played on the same slowpitch softball team after I graduated college.  Carol was an OUTSTANDING high school and college (UMASS) player. What an awesome shortstop and hitter.  I never saw her play fastpitch, but I can just imagine what she was like, seeing that I was next to her at 3rd base during our slowpitch games.

The other inductee is Vicki White.  Vicki was a terrific high school pitcher, but I know Vicki from college (SHU).  The year I graduated, she came in as a freshman pitcher and really guided the team for four years. Vicki became the pitching coach at Sacred Heart University after graduation and is still there.

So congratulations to my two friends Carol and Vicki for this well deserved recognition!!!

Thanks for your visit!
