Ms Kurys was paid a great compliment a few years ago. It's a compliment that I have never forgotten.

Everyone was raving about the 130 major league stolen bases record of Ricky Henderson; a great feat to be sure.

However, someone was quick to point out that "Yeah, it's a great record by Ricky but he's no Sophie Kurys!"

She was quite a ballplayer!
February 21, 2013
Rest In Peace!!

I just would like to say "THANK YOU"! Not only was I able to play softball & competition softball from the time I was 8 until I was 17 years old & forged some of the best friendships I cherish and still have to this day (29 years later), but because of you, Sophie Kurys, I enjoy one of the best movies ever made - almost everytime it is on the television! I am forever in your debt from your contibutions, as a woman and as a softball player. Not only that, I lived in Scottsdale from 1984-2003 & am humbled to know I lived so close to a living legend. Rest In Peace Sophie!!
