Went to Dania after I turned 18 and was now legal. My friends were intrigued by the betting but I became interested in the sport itself. Later that same year went to Univ of Florida for freshman year and saw 2 guys playing against an outdoor racquetball court. Bought my first cesta at Ocala and practiced outside then in Ocala's amateur program, which was open 2 days/week. Then I got lucky and got the job as ballboy there and got to practice all the time and against the pros. Later I moved to Orlando and was ballboy there too.
