THE TEAM - #14 Sharon

THE TEAM got swept in a Doubleheader.  THE TEAM is 0-4.  That sucks.  A few things didn't suck.  Natasha's 5 RBIs against No Glove No Love was magnificent.  Dora went 4 for 5 with an RBI against The Swingers.  Heather made some tough plays at third.  Peter hit another Home Run.  Other than that...   Chupendous!

Way back in 2009 everybody on THE TEAM answered some questions to be posted on this here blog.  That means there are 9 current players who have never bared their very souls in the effort to have THE TEAM get better acquainted.

First up   Sharon

How did you end up on THE TEAM ?

Lou, the unofficial recruiter, worked his wiley ways and somehow convinced me to play a game I hadn't played in 20 years with a bunch of strangers who had won the championship the year before... No pressure

What positions have you played so far for THE TEAM ?

Right field and 2nd.  Catcher a couple of times.

Do you have a favorite ?

Prefer the action at 2nd but enjoy the grass between my toes and sun on my face lounging out in right.

Is there a special reason you chose 14 for your jersey number ?

It's been my lucky number since grade school when I played on the basketball team.  Speediest high scoring guard in grade 5.  Hasn't won me any lotteries though.

Did you play sports in school?  What teams were you on and what school did you play for?

My parents, although not athletic, loved sports competition ranging from The Derby to NASCAR and all in between.  Embracing that spirit, I played basketball, tennis, field hockey, flag football and was a cheerleader for the Sherwood Saints ( yes, "When the Saints come marching home").  Stuck with just tennis throughout university representing the McMaster Marauders.  Oh yeah - and badminton (great fun!)

Besides your outstanding softball ability, what other talents do you have?

Finally!  Someone recognizing I am outstanding at softball ---- out standing in right field, that is.  Add golf, air hockey, ping pong and darts, scrabble, charades, cards against humanity... well, you get the picture.  Fun and Games!  I'm a Renaissance Girl - dabbling in a lot of stuff.  Acting, photography and home renovations being my favorites at this moment in time.  And when you ask next year, I want to add 'rockin out on the drums'.  Seriously.

Can I have $50?

Monopoly money - sure!

Thank You Sharon

Next up, Heather

Sorry I wasn't able to play, I wouldn't have been much help. But some how I know you all played a great double header. Way to go Natasha and Dora. Great interview Sharon.
