Morris native Tom Hesse just can't seem to get softball out of his system.

After many years playing the sport, Hesse began umpiring games in the Morris Men's Softball League.


This summer, he concluded his 41st year in the league as player and ump.

"I just enjoy (softball), it's good recreation," said Hesse. "It's always fun being around people, and I have always loved baseball and softball."
