Former players and supporters of the 1970s and ’80s Barboy Team, of the Over the Hill Softball league, met at Bollinger’s restaurant for their annual Christmas breakfast. The event was co-coordinated and emceed by Dan Ruesterholz with special guest, president and league founder Jim Reilly.
A brief tribute was paid to recently departed members of the league and teammates who were ill and could not attend. The attendees then went on to reminisce about the good times and success the team achieved over their many years of playing together.
Exaggerated stories of hitting prowess and fielding ability dominated the discussions and were told by all. The fine cuisine provided by Bollinger’s coupled with the companionship the team still enjoys led to a very entertaining morning by all who attended.
