The telephone rang in the Mervin Eischens home and the lady on the other end told him he was selected to the Minnesota Sports Federation’s Softball Hall of Fame.
“Who put me in for that?” was his first question.
The answer: your grandsons.
That thought brings a smile to his lips every time he tells the story.
“I couldn’t believe it. I was so surprised,” said Eischens.
He was named as a manager, sponsor, promoter from St. Leo.
They left out player — and you don’t leave that out.
“I played all my life,” says Eischens.
In fact, the last game he played was at the age of 70.
Eischens will be inducted at the 26th annual banquet on Friday, October 22 at the Monterey Ballroom in Owatonna.

It took Renville County West a game and a half to score a point off a serve.
They lost 25-7 in the first game as Minneota's Katelyn Kack served 11 straight points.
The Jaguars got going and gave Minneota a run in the second game before losing, 25-18 and hung in there long enough to lose 25-21 in the final game.
For the Vikings it was their eighth straight win and drove their record to 19-2.
They may meet RCW again in the North-South Camden Conference game on Oct. 18.
Dominating the first game was Ashlynn Muhl with six kills and two blocks. She ended the game with 14 kills to lead the Vikings.
The win was the final home game of the year and wrapped up at least a tie for the Camden Conference crown. They can win it outright with a victory at Lakeview Thursday night.
