Moving Batter MILESTONES 

1949 - On the night of September 8th, Elizabeth Jane Hall and Ralph Hall gave birth to their first born son. His dad was playing softball earlier that night. DAD was more famous for his State of Texas Championship Golden Gloves in boxing and was not really a power hitter, but he actually did hit a home run that night.
1956 - The first softball game played by Ralph Hall, Jr. was at 1826 Basse Road, San Antonio, TX. He was 6 years old, in the first grade, and played right field that day. He did not make any defensive put-outs, but  he got on base every at bat with either hits or walks. His favorite part of the game was running the bases. The snow cones from the refreshment stand after the game were good too. Who could have imagined then, that he would celebrate his 54th year as a softball player and 44th year as an umpire in 2010? A small lump of coal would be transformed into a shinning diamond.

"What causes us to be in the right time and the right place in softball history is the grace and favor of God." One touch of HIS grace gives us a life. One touch of HIS favor does more than we can do in a lifetime of our own efforts. Ralph Hall 6-12-07
