To the Editor:
The recent death of Dick Walls brought back many good memories for this writer.
Dick was an outstanding coach in my girls' slo-pitch softball league at Ballou Park in Dixon for many seasons.
He was very successful in many ways.
Dick had many successful winning seasons and never a loosing season. In league play he always was on or near the top and won many league championships. He coached many seasons and was with me for over 20 years.
When the ball park diamond was named in my honor, he was in attendance and fully supported the naming.
It always made me very proud to have Dick Walls as a coach in girls' slo-pitch softball.
Editor's note: Dick Walls, an ardent Boston Red Sox fan who died May 19 at the age of 88, lead the Dixon Angels girls' softball team to the USSSA Central Division Championship title in 1985.
