The worst part was recovery. I had a fractured finger that took 6 months to heal. The doc said at 25 it would have taken 6 weeks. And everything was like that. I'd still feel it 2-3 days after playing. I could still do it, but it took a big effort. And it wasn't fun any more.
Get off my lawn.
I'm getting the same way with softball. At 38, I was still pretty good, could yank one out on occasion and play some decent defense. Now at 41 everything hurts for 3 days after.
That said, I am playing tomorrow night.
