On Opening Day of the 2014-2015 season, October 26, the PebbleCreek Senior Softball Association honored one of its original players, Carleton Lee.
Carleton began playing with the first team in PebbleCreek, named the Creekers, in 1994. Carleton remained playing as the league expanded to its current 12 teams, playing with the same team, Desert Rose, for 16 years as the team’s catcher. He retired after the conclusion of the 2011 season.
Carleton was selected to be the First Catcher.” Instead of throwing out the first pitch that usually signals the opening of a new season, Carleton caught the first pitch thrown by his former battery mate, Ron Glynn.
Former teammate Fred Schmidt presented Carleton with a league jacket, awarded to those who have spent 15 years as members of the league.
