The Stone Crabs had an off day yesterday, but for the front office and many of the players it was not a day off. The team held their annual Stone Crab scramble golf tournament at Heron Creek and I had the pleasure of participating in it. Naturally I showed up late, but the staff was very accommodating and scrambled to find me some teammates. My last minute foursome included Mike Sheridan and Anthony Scelfo, two Stone Crabs players, which led to it being a very fun day. No surprise, these guys can hit the ball! Anthony hit a drive that took a fortuitous cart path bounce and ended up going at least 330 yards, and Sheridan drove the ball pin high on a 307 yard par four. The old man of the group then pitched in for an eagle 2. That may have been the golf highlight of the day, but listening to Scelfo (a Louisiana boy) explaining gator wrestling had to be up there in the conversation highlights as well. We shot nine under par 63, and then were treated to a great lunch in the clubhouse. I had other commitments so had to leave for the prizes were handed out, but it was a fun day getting to know a couple of the guys in the organization. I really appreciate the Stone Crabs front office, and especially the players giving up one of their few days off to participate in this charitable event.ReplyDelete
