Renton Softball at Liberty Park

Yesterday officially kicked off the start of Renton Parks Department Men's Softball league. It couldn't have been a better day either. The sun was shining and it was actually pretty warm....something we aren't use to around here! Both my sons play on Classic's Bar and Grill's team so it was fun to watch the two of them. The game was at Liberty Park and they played a double header. They won both games....infact 10 runned the other team both games. The group of guys have been playing together for years now and usually end up in the playoffs at the end of the season. I was sitting in the bleachers and noticed one of the players had his two young sons with him. They must have been over at the playground but ended up coming into the dugout. I noticed Terry (the dad) slip off his younger son's shoe and head out of the dugout. He walked over to a patch of green grass and I immediately started laughing because I knew from experience what he was doing! His son had stepped in dog poop and he was trying to wipe it off his shoe! First it was a swipe on the grass, then as in the picture he resorted to stick and then tissue. Tate is pictured in the bottom picture after his shoe was returned by dad! Gotta love kids!!


  1. How great to hear about the teams and the start of the league - Do you get over to Classics? I hear they have some good fish and chips on Fridays - can you confirm this for me??

  2. I don't get over to Classic's much anymore. Several years ago my husband played softball for them and we went there all the time! But they do have good food. I will have to confirm the fish and chips. I do know that they have really good pizza and a really good burrito. JP, who owns Williams Ave. also owns Classic's......
