Great, I remember thinking as I headed back toward Marine Walk – even the winners hate me. But hey, what did I expect? Saltaire softball has always been serious business.
No other Commissioner paid such a price, bore such a burden, met so many hardships, opposed so many foes, in order to assure the survival and the success of the Saltaire Softball league as Frank did in 1974.
But that was the year that really got the league rolling, and it has rolled every summer since. And Frank's efforts made it happen.
For this, forty years later, we thank, you, Frank.
(Or should we just apologize?)
