Taylor Johnson, my niece, and her softball team, the Shaker Heights (Ohio) Red Devils, won the Willoughby League Girls (12 and under) championship Thursday night. They were undefeated throughout the regular season. They played the 2nd place team for the League Championship in a best 2 of 3 games. They won the 1st game, lost the 2nd and they won in a nailbiter Thursday night, 10-7. They were down 5-0 at the top of the 4th and then in the bottom of the 4th and 5th innings, they came back to tie it up. The other team, The Closet of Willoughby, scored in the top of the 6th to make it 7-5 and our girls came back in the bottom of the 6th to score 5 more runs and make it 10-7. They retired The Closet in the top of the 7th, 1,2,3 and won thus won the game. Taylor is a rightfielder.

the women. Twenty yards from the green, however, he turned on his heel
and went back to where his companion was waiting.
“Can’t do it,” he explained, sheepishly. “One of them’s my wife
and the other’s my mistress!”
“I’ll ask,” said Jim. He started off, only to turn and come back
before reaching the green.
“What’s wrong?” Bill asked.
“Small world, isn’t it?”
