I recently had the itch to get back into competitive sports after sitting on the sidelines and coaching my sons' teams for many years. After high school and patella tendon replacement surgery, I couldn't really play high impact sports without the fear of injuring my knee again. I played sand volleyball for many years (and had to have ACL replacement while playing) and 12" softball, but could never find a rec baseball team that I was able to compete on. Baseball was always my favorite sport growing up and always wished I could have continued to play.
We moved to a different town about a year and a half ago and I caught wind of an over 40 baseball league. I finally ended up catching a game this past weekend and think that with a bit of practice I could compete again. So I'm wondering, is there anyone else out there that is still playing rec sports like baseball, basketball, hockey, etc. and are you able to compete and have fun? Specifically I'm looking for any of my over 40 brethren's experiences, but I'd like to hear from everyone. Thanks guys.
