There was an activities director, and he got together a softball team for each plant they had in Hagerstown, and they had a lot of plants all over Hagerstown. I happened to be with the big plant. So he would always be at our games. Like I say he was activities directory. He was the head of all. They had basketball, and I’m not sure, I think they had bowling too. I wasn’t a basketball player, I was too short. I was the captain and we would go out and play and practice. When we practiced if we got tired and wanted to go to the movies, we just gathered up our balls and mitts and stuff and go to the movies before we went into work at 4 o’clock.
