Discussion: Best of luck this week

Hi all that are involved this next week in Vegas. Just wanted to say have fun enjoy the game and the people around you. We never know when this could our last chance to give a hug, say a kind word etc. I found out last night that someone close to me may have Cancer and it really makes other things seem so little. I love our game of softball and am really thankful to all of you who are a part of the game. With games starting in two days and our bracket starting on Friday there will be many people and faces from the past to say hello and play against again. Thanks to all of you and enjoy the ride. Bless you Terry, Fran, Dave and George and rest of crew for letting us old timers still plays a kid's game. As Rocky would say Keep punching Appolo. Hugs GI PS Webbie--- Move over Webbie, (That's a side joke between some of his teammates)

Discussion: AZ Roadrunners have disbanned

First of all I want to thank several of you guys who have called and said keep our heads up. That was a nice thing to do.So many have been kind and it is nice to be thought of. I also heard from guys in mesquite yesterday and Hunters and Tucson Bandits were doing very well and leading the 55 division and playing for championships. Both those teams are a good bunch and hunters are giving up some age to compete with 55's. After attending church today I have to say it really is not so bad for us guys who are looking for a team. One of our church leaders returned today from her 3rd heart surgery and another lady just finished her first treatment from cancer. SO WHAT DO I HAVE TO BE CONCERNED OVER. Puts things in a different view for sure.Anyway just wanted to close this with much thanks . Bless each of you and if I can ask but one thing from you,,, How about we all be COLOR BLIND when looking at each other. GI

Discussion: AZ Roadrunners have disbanned

Thanks Tom, I too remember you guys well. My former coach from 10 years ago for AZ. Mob 50's is Mike Mule we played Major and AAA level. I am not sure I ever got him out . He loves my pitching and played for you guys. Saw Mike last weekend in tournament. I am hopeful after such a long time in playing that I will land somewhere. Feel free to call me at 480-981-6406 if ever you need someone for fun tournament I know I will be playing with Q-Man from Rouge and other teams in Pinetop this June. I understand Prescott has a tournament coming up in May. One thing I know is God always has a plan. Just like I tell the students at school SOMETIMES WE HAVE TO TAKE A STEP BACK TO SEE THE WHOLE PICTURE.I am fine with that. Bless you for your kind words and see you on the field. Gary I.

Discussion: SSUSA survey

I must have missed the survey but I also never saw the survey to make pitching rule 1-1. I sure hated to miss that one because as a pitcher I hate 0-0 count. Must have went to junk mail. I too on a teachers salary for the 49th ranked state on education (AZ) with more cuts coming this year, Thanks GOV. have a modest income. Most of my travel went to softball in past. GI

You played well this past weekend. Sorry we could not have kept the team going . I think we may have been decent at 60 AAA. Who knows. I am sure we will see each other again on the field. There is always someone wanting someone on the 10 day waiver list, HA Best of luck. Gary I.

Discussion: AZ Roadrunners have disbanned

It was with much sadness that I read today that the AZ Roadrunners who had been moved up to major last Oct after finishing 3rd in World have decided to break up the team. I can understand and agreed with them asking senior softball to drop them back to AAA after 3 tournaments. Having seen them lose badly in Major competition and after Palm Springs being drilled by 4 Major teams going 0-5 and losing most games by double figures it was a easy call to ask for help. We did win one game in Jan- Feb at Rick Seifman's tournament but that was by 1 run to a AA 60 team.. I hold no anger with the people in charge as I consider them to be good friends and they have gone way beyond in helping me in past with the Children's Home golf tournament each year. I have had such a wonderful streak by being able to pitch past 30 years and being a part of CJS Express to win the Triple Crown and Worlds in 50 division 5 years ago. We also won a TOC in AAA the first year it was offered. I am blessed and if I never play again I can be thankful for the chances I have had to face some of the best . It was nice to be competitive in last Sundays game where we lost by one run and I at 62 was lucky to hit a inside park Home Run and strike out 3 guys at the plate. You guys know I am no speed demon. HA. I have already set up my trip for Vegas in April and Myself and wife will still be going for the 3 days even not playing. Since we can now play to 85 and over I am sure this is not my last time to play but I plan to set back and see what occurs. Maybe this is God's way to tell me he wants me in more Sunday church services as I sing up front when I am not playing. I wish not only former Roadrunners but all of you much success. Life is a blessing and stay happy. We are winning by just being on the field.Thank you terry Fran George and Dave for putting on a program to give us a chance to play at our age. Hugs to all Gary Ingle

Discussion: who won AZ 60 Siefman tournament past weekend at Papago?

Was just wondering who ended up winning this past weekend in the 60 AAA division at Papago. Looked like Ambush and couple other teams were winning when we left after game time mix up. My guess Ambush as they have been on a great role with winning Winter Worlds and several other tournaments. Great bunch of guys.

Discussion: Thanksgiving

I just wanted to add a special thanks to all of you who make this game so special in my life. I am so thankful God continues to let me play a small part. I have to again give a super thanks to Senior Softball terry, Fran, Dave and George for helping the children at Sunshine Acres Children's Home golf tournament. It means the world to me that you guys showed a real act of kindness. We had over 200 golfers and a nice supper with Auction. I am really hopeful any that are ever in area of Mesa will come by for a tour. Thanks again all for playing the game I look forward to seeing you in Jan at the PHX tournament. Keep hitting my friends. Gary Ingle

Way to go AZ. Chain Link wins 60 plus and AMBUSH and Old School finish 1-2 in AAA. I am sure they both will do well in majors if moved up for winning Worlds. Great job guys, proud of you.Nice to see ARIZONA teams doing well- You are a wonderful bunch of guys and should feel great about the win.

Discussion: Sunshine Acres Children's Home Golf Tournament

I would just like to add that I have heard some very kind comments from players etc about the golf tournament. It is nice that our softball community helps support needy children and programs. I am so thankful for Senior Softball for helping and also for letting me play ball at 61 years old. Winning the triple Crown with CJS and 50 Worlds in 2009 is one of the biggest moments of my life and I am grateful as a pitcher etc that I have been able to play these years without a major injury. Again I thank each of you for your kind words and actions. I will be putting out a note soon on blog to let teams know that I am looking for a team to play with this next year. God bless you all and hope to see you at Golf tournament. Gary Ingle

Discussion: Sunshine Acres Children's Home Golf Tournament

To Terry, Fran, Dave George I want to thank each of you again for your kindness in helping our kids at Sunshine Acres Children's Home for the golf tournament. The tournament will be held at LongBOW in Mesa on Fri. Nov. 21st with AM and 12:30 tee times. I understand AM is now full. I was just looking at Winter World information and loved seeing the add with tournament page for information on the golf tournament.I know you guys take a lot of heat but your kindness every year to the soon to be 90 children at Sunshine Acres is a real blessing. I encourage all in area at that time even if not golfing to come to LongBOW Fri night 6pm for Carraba's supper and Auction to benefit the kids. We have been blessed over the past 60 years to raise 2,000 children and CONTINUE to never turn a child away due to lack of funds. Support comes from faith and state and Gov't does not pay us to raise the children. Would be great to see some teams that play that week Mon-Wed stay couple more days and golf with us. Come take a tour given daily and see how God has blessed this special home. Home is at 3405 N. Higley Mesa. That is Higley and 202 freeway.Thanks again to your bunch terry. Would love to give tour to Fran and Dave and see new homes that have been built in past year. Good luck to all the teams and I will be back playing as soon as I can find a 60's team for next season. May your best be better and your better be BLESSED. Gary Ingle

As Dr Martin L. King said, the only way to fight hate is with love. I still am hoping that he was not serious.I have no desire to name names. Thanks for all of comments. ( Keep Cisco AZ player and a great guy) in all your prayers I hear that we need to let him know we love him and that he is in our prayers with his medical situation. Bless you Cisco, Pulling for you.

Discussion: Prayers for my son

Ken You have been such a blessing to me over the past 25 years on and off the field. Do not give up, keep looking for answers, Maybe another medical option. Check with insurance to see what can be looked into. God has plans for each of us, If I can be of any help let me know and I will check with other counselors I work with to see if they have any options. If he is not working State insurance Access could be helpful. Bless you and your family.GI
