Until niece Devin, no one in our family has displayed any athletic talent since our great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great uncle Davidus won a footrace against his fellow Christians escaping hungry lions in the Roman Colosseum.
She loves softball and has advanced to the Encino/Sherman Oaks League All-Star team, and will be playing in tournaments against other San Fernando Valley All-Stars this summer. This past weekend, her team "High Voltage" got off to a good start winning their first tournament (and a trophy half as tall as the players).
I'm happy and proud to say, I was asked to design and illustrate the team logo.
It's nice to be able to contribute and show my support this way since I can't offer her any useful advice from my sports playing history - unless learning how to trip over your own feet running between bases and fall down flailing your arms in a spastic manner is a valuable skill to her.
