Discussion: Cisco Arvallo in the hospital in Phoenix

Hey Cisco...
From ALL your buddies on the Fan Grabber team, get well soon. Senior Softball will be missing a great hitter representing Arizona, until you do. I know your in good hands with Frannie watching over you.

FOFO We played a best record out of (5) games. The good thing about that
is that we get to play all the teams in this five team division. It consisted
of Top Gun III, Wongs, Nighthawks, Studs N Duds and Fan Grabbers. The bad part is that there was no championship game. As we came out cold (11-1 loss) to the
Nighthawks, we would have loved to see them again. After our first game we followed with two walk-off wins on Saturday and found a cold Double Play and
Wongs team on Sunday. Balls were Stotes and we never got to the limit of (5).
We had a stretch of (8) innings without a score ????? NEVER seen that before.
Dave Dowell would have probably scheduled differently, but Marv and Jerry both
went out of their way to make us feel welcome and accomplished that.
It was exceptionally fun to see everyone and enjoy the weather.

Congrats to "The Don" and his Nighthawks in their undefeated tournament in the 55 Division. It's always a joy to get spanked by such a class act and hear Don give me all the excusses why we were'nt beating them. Again, great to see you, Don. Also, George R, Steve I and Glenn I with the "Studs" team... great to see you all well and playing great ball.
We also had a great time seeing three other good squads... Top Gun III, Double Play & Wongs.
Average temperature a warm 80, here in Phoenix it was a warm 112.
GREAT job SCSSA.

Jackson...
Sorry for you not pleasing everyone, 100% of the time... but welcome
to the selfish and grumpy part of our sport. I know that things have been
tough with the economy and all, but would love to tell your "un-happy e-mailer"
how hard you work to prepare THOUSANDS of shots after spending from Dawn to
Dusk at ALL of the parks, just in case someone might purchase a picture.
This person probably would have spent a whole $5 bucks with you anyway.
I'm going to order $10 worth to make up for your loss,
Then, I'm going to have a glass of Whine !
See you in Phoenix my friend.
Johnny.

Discussion: Cheyenne Park for Worlds

Rightrj1,
Thank you for standing up for my thoughts. We all were wondering why WE were
selected to have to play there? And, I agree that the upper divisions should
NEVER play on fields that have potential to injure innocent people driving their
cars on North 5th Street because they can hit a ball 400 feet. Most lower division players cannot do that. I am very good friends with both Dave and Fran, and if he says he had no other option, I beleive him. I feel so adament about this park, that I would rather not play in the tournament if selected to go back. I will have my attorney draw up an "OUT" clause when entering the next Vegas Tournament.
Congrats to all the teams that played, especially Conn. Sports and MTC. And,
them pesky dudes from Nighthawks (The Don).
Great seeing and meeting you guys.
And, special thanks to my squad... you guys did good !

Jack,
Great shots. I am amazed that you seem to be there for all the special moments.
Although not the best outcome for a slide at third, the shot(s) you took when we
played (K C Barons vs Fan Grabbers) where their player seperated his shoulder was
something else. We all felt terrible for their guy and wish him a speedy recovery. Again, great job and will send you an order.
Thanks, Johnny.

Discussion: Why do you bother to post pool play games / tournament brackets if you are not going to update

Hey Zac7, lighten up.
If you knew Dave Dowell like the rest of us, you would know that he
has plenty of things to do along with a gravely ill family member.
But I guess your a new guy and meant no harm, right?
Thanks for understanding.

Dave Dowell and Family,
In hearing the news, I wish to offer our thoughts and prayers through your tough times, from all of your friends on the Fan Grabber team. You and Fran both need
to wind down a little, be there for each other and your family... forget about
SSUSA for while. I'm sure Terry and the crew can cover.

Discussion: THE NEED FOR SEVEN INNINGS

Dennis,
I would think that anyone that plays ball in a town that is named after him, could get Sacramento to listen.
I too, would love to see seven innings in the brackets for SSUSA.
Maybe do away with (9) run innings (in Maj Plus) and that "Stuipid" three game quarantee, where you can play an absolutely meaningless game.
I also think that they shorten the games played per day, to make sure all the teams get to Sunday, thus keeping the hotels happy.
But, then again, this is just my opinion.
Congrats to you and GSF with your accomplishments in Dalton.
Johnny.

Discussion: Our FRIEND...Action Jack needsw YOU

First off, JACK had nothing to do with this post, he has too much class.
When I started in senior ball years ago, I brought a new bunch of guys to
the scene. Jack took our team picture... great memories. He has been there
ever since. With the economy as it is, I know money is tight, but if we don't
buy a few pictures now and again, he won't be there. I asked him how RENO was
for him and he said he might be able to get a breakfast at Denny's. Coaches,
please get with your guys and see what you can do. You players out there,
especially those of you that have been kicking butt on the my team lately,
get a picture of it. We don't want to lose an ICON like Jack.
I know you will feel good about it.
Thanks.

Jaywood and Andy,
Thanks for your responses. I know Dave's just waiting til he cools down
before responding. With all the stuff he has on his plate, he would be
the likely candidate should they do any updating.
I've had a few coaches call me and we all agree it's at least 30%.
We'll see, huh. Or, we won't.
Regards.
Johnny.

Discussion: TEAM Classiications

Staff... is there a reason why you have teams listed on your current ratings list, that are not
current and/or no longer in existance? For example, I have two teams on your 50's list that are
not in existance... Powerline/ Miken and Fan Grabber 50's. Maybe I'm a little neurotic but, wouldn't
you guys want your information on your website to be as precise as possible? I am sure there are no
hidden reasons or intentional misrepresentation here, but I look to your site often and would like
to know a more realistic view of my competitors.
Maybe you could have a list of teams that are currently registered for 2012, you think?
I'm sure George has some spare time on his hands, give him the project.
Thanks, in advance.
John.
