Welcome to FanPost Friday!

Hopefully you are able to join us for our second and final softbaLL game of 2019 tomorrow, Saturday, August 31, 1 - 3 PM at Lower Woodlands ballfields in Seattle (Official details post here!). Even if you can’t make it, this prompt is for anyone who’s come and played at any of the softbaLL games over the years.

Prompt: Greatest moment in SoftbaLL history

So, what’s it going to be? A few come to my mind, but I’ve only been going to these since 2017, so feel free to go deeper into history. How about Young Flip’s impeccable Mariners batting stances impressions? Or playing at that weird half turf/half grass field down at Magnuson Park back in October 2017 in the rain? That was goofy. Of course there’s the time John Trupin knocked over a large pine tree with a home run in 2018 and then in his final at-bat before moving to Cooperstown back in July, hit a go-ahead 2-run smash in a most dramatic fashion.
