The Toothboss Hits A Home Run by Naming Bill Thorne as Its Smiling Neighbor
By: PR Works
Bill, 68, has played in an over-60 softball league for years. When enough of his teammates reached age 65, they went to Las Vegas to compete in a seven game, winner take all tournament. Bill and his teammates won!
"We play in a lot of tournaments during the course of the year. You never really know what to expect," said Bill, who plays right field and is often called on to pinch run. "This one went much better than expected. We can't wait to go back next year."
Bill, a Weymouth resident, began playing softball after high school. He kept at it through the years. After retiring from the US Postal Service after 31 years, he decided to take it up a notch and joined a league based out Bridgewater. That's led to tournaments regionally and nationally, year-round.
"My wife is a good sport about the tournaments. We make a vacation out of it," said Thorne.
The couple have two adult children, Katrina, 36, and Daniel 32.
"I'm around Bill's age. I'm happy to get a good walk in and call it a day. It's truly inspirational that he's not only playing softball at his age but playing it at high level," said Dr. Wolfert. "For that, we're proud to recognize Bill with our Smiling Neighbor award."
The Smiling Neighbor award is given out on a quarterly basis to citizens of Weymouth going above and beyond the call of duty for their fellow citizens. People can nominate a Smiling Neighbor by sending an e-mail of 200 words or less to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please remember to include your name and telephone number as well as the name and telephone number or e-mail of the person they are nominating. Nominations can also be sent to The Toothboss, 1121 Main Street, South Weymouth, MA 02190.
