A summertime co-ed softball tournament in Lewisville, MN, is my most cherished memory of Charlie. The obligatory game end handshake line never fades, Charlie was near to the end of the line meeting the Fuzzy's team and their pitcher. This man had heckled Charlie from his first call as umpire, justice was at hand, a fist fight ensued and the crowd cheered Charlie on while Ed Sheely and myself tried in vain to break it up. We were both thrown around as if we were rag dolls while hanging onto Charlie's arms. Godspeed Marine, Godspeed.
