Sponsor looking to finance an "established" Men's club
I would like to investigate the possibly of sponsoring an "established" men's unit with the Mid-Michigan region which would include Grand Rapids and Detroit.

Financing up to 10K is a distinct possibility depending upon the level and extent of overall league & tournament qualifications. I am looking for a unit that is dedicated to "playing the game" not "playing at the game". In other words, old-school softball.

Impress me with your unit's qualifications and perhaps we can "rock & roll" in 2013.

How about Northern Ohio teams:)

I'll put in my two cents>

I don't play with jsheeran but have played against him and his team in a few tournaments.

They are a quality outfit, play the game right, play to win and as a team.

You couldn't go wrong with them as an established team.

Will be considering any other possible US regions if I don't receive some possibilities within the requested region within a couple of weeks.

If interested, please contact me direct: grm.phd@gmail.com

I guess "old school softball" is dead. I was not expecting the big "pissing match" that is currently ongoing:

http://seniorsoftball.com/?messageboard&viewby_thread=103605&message_topic_id=wanted_players

I wanted to give back to the game that had been so good to me for 25+ years and I guess the game I remember no longer exist.

I can not and will not tolerate this "new school chatter softball" especially since they want to bring my name into it and therefore, I will not be coming back to the game after a 15-year retirement to sponsor.

My deepest apologies for any inconvenience and my sincere best wishes for your continued success and that of your club for the upcoming season.

Sparky,
Not everyone grumbles! This is a great game that has more positives than negatives. Yet, many talk too much on the negatives!! Mahalo for your consideration and God bless, Aloha, Fabe
