Lasting thoughts:

If there is one thing that I miss more than anything about Korea, it is the Daegu Softball League. I think about it often, think about the number of great people I met there, the absolute fun I had every single weekend and tournaments and gatherings. When I look back on my late life, I will think of my 30s as my Decade of Softball in Korea.
