What is the funniest thing you have ever seen on a softball field?
Playin somewhere like 5 years a go and we are hittin.  A guy named Chicken is on second and a car backfires over the center field fence.I mean it was
loud.  Everyone is like WOW.  Then i look up and chicken is layin on second base like he got shot.  I seriously couldnt stop laughing and everytime I see him I
think we tell the story.  Probably had to be there but it was funny.
