Jon Gerardi's column on high school softball: New warm-weather friend


However, unlike here -- where it feels like winter as early as October and as late as April -- Arizona's warm temperatures allow for non-stop, year-long softball.

"In Arizona you never stop playing. You get a week off in August and keep going," Davis said. "(That's) still something to get used to, that definitely came with the move."

You know what else came with the move? Some pretty good friendships in Mifflinburg that Davis probably wouldn't give up for anything. Not even that sunny, 88-degree Arizona weather.
