Camouflage Fastpitch Softball Uniforms: The Tale of the Camo Caper

Local Coach Steve Stevenson reported this week he was unable to start practice on time Thursday because his players were nowhere to be found.  Normally a punctual group, the coach was thoroughly confused and disappointed as the minutes ticked by and still the practice diamond appeared to be empty. 

He couldn't seem to figure out what could be keeping them. Spirits had seemed high earlier in the week when he handed out the team's brand new custom camouflage uniforms from Team Sports Planet

Were they under the bleachers?  Had they all gotten detention? Perhaps a low level out of season hurricane had swept them away? What could it be?

Then, just as he was beginning to wonder what he was going to tell their parents, he noticed a ball moving through the blue sky above the field. As it stopped, he began to make out the figure of a glove with an arm connected to it, and connected to the arm, a softball player!

As his eyes adjusted, he quickly began to see the field was filling up with balls, gloves, and bats, seemingly moving of their own volition. 

Had Coach Steve finally succumbed to mental illness? Had the players been taken under the power of some witch's curse or voodoo spell?


"It must be the CAMO!" he was heard to exclaim as the realization crept over him. It may have looked to passers by as though he were exclaiming to an empty field, another coach driven mad by the pressures of the elite high school fast pitch game. But he was not mad. He was finally beginning to see.

His players were not invisible, nor were they under a spell. They were all so excited about their new uniforms, they had decided to wear them to practice. And the camouflaged look worked so well, the players seemed to blend into the background of the field like so many chameleons evading predators.

After he knew what to look for, his eyes quickly adjusted and a successful practice was had. Let it be a warning to other potential Coach Steves, though: camo is a powerful tool, only to be entrusted to the kind-hearted.
