Missoula Softball Players, Want to Go for a Record?
Okay, you Missoula softball fanatics, and I know there are lots of you. I have a challenge for you. Associated Press tells us that an Illinois man has set a new Guinness record for catching a softball from the greatest height. Chris Shields caught the ball tossed out of an ultralight plane from 250 feet. He says the inspiration was simple: His 10-year-old daughter suggested it while watching him catch pop-ups. So he contacts Guinness and they agree to create a new world record category. Hey, a world record for now. I can already hear the gears in Missoula softball players’ brains grinding. Let us know when you’re ready to beat that 250 mark and we’ll be there to cover it! DB
