What did this Stoneman do, in order to break another players bone? Throw another bat? Who will help pay the bills if, this man or women cannot work?

Anyone know where Stoneman is? He's been visable absent lately.

The Hijacker,
I would take the time to tell you about this if I knew who you were, but you have chosen not to grace us with your identity. By the looks of your grammar and spelling you are probably Gary19, back to irritate us some more. I'm not going to waste too much more of my time on you. It is people like you that are the reason we don't have the pleasure of decifering Stoneman's posts anymore. So take your absurd insinuations and comments over to theoldscout.com board. You won't be any more appreciated, but at least you will be tolerated, if only for a short time. ( sorry about that Gordie!)

One only sees your name if they take the time to read ones history & at least you sign them.
As for Stephen, I hoe I'm not reading between the lines correctly here. I just thought he may be avoiding posting due to what ever it is about the bone thing.
He does offer us all some good info through his own style.
As for the H-jacker, his colors won't change nor will his spots if G-19 or his other alias.

HI-JACKER made one good point who helps this gentleman with his bills or any other person who gets hurt. I believe this was a NCSSA (Northern Cal) event how about a charity event to help offset some of his out of pocket. I know personally that this happens in other parts of the country.

I play on his team and I know this is a setback for him. I'm willing to help. How do we get something like this started? I've never been involved with getting a event started. But will take any ideas.

Fastsam in Vegas we had a fireman get hit in the face by a batted ball,and it did some damage. What one of the local TD's did was to hold a tournament and Umpires volunteered their time and I believe the concession donated proceeds and balls were donated. The TD paid for the fields through a preset entrance fee and the balance was turned over to the individual. I also recall donations over and above the entrance fee were accepted. Every little bit helps.

I someone was injured, I feel for him. Good for you guys to have his thoughts enough to bring up fund raising. But . . . on the other side of the coin, I sure don't miss the continous jaw flappin and crying of SMan. It seemed as if this self-proclaimed no-it-all stuck his nose into business that was not his concern. So, please continue to be quiet . . . makes my day.

No need for all the charity stuff. All tournaments carry insurance, so just get the name of the insurance carrier from the director and submit a claim. Presto, all related medical expenses will be covered in full.

Not quite so fast on that ins thing, Most are 3rd party coverage. Meaning if you have any other, they are stuck, first, then it kicks in. Also their "assumed risk" clause, may null that as well.
All policies are different, & you never know until you check.

It's not the medical bills that will become the problem. It's the out of pocket money being a private contractor.

You might be right on that, I know nothing about the FC part, a bad one is if loss of wages hits home.

Not at all. They know each other and have played together. It was a accident, he showed remorse and was very concerned.

There has been a lot said here, but the question of what's up with Stoneman has really not been answered.Can someone give me some details?

I'm glad you feel it was not intentional, I am friends with Stoney also and talked to him that monday, he feels horrible. Some things happen, I used to play 3rd base and on monday my wife would see all the bruises on my body and wonder why in hell I even played softball. I hope you heal quickly good luck.

No it wasn't me. I play on his team. For those of you concerned our pitcher got hit with a line drive Sunday and it broke his arm right above his wrist.

Hey Sam,
I've spoken with G a couple of times now
and he and I are lifetime members of a club
we both hope gets no more members.

I was there playing for the Old A's
encouraging Stoneman to hit the ball hard somewhere.
He and I were swinging the 30 oz Ultra 2 he'd gotten
from Rick Perez upon his retirement.
Stoneman wasn't trying to hit the ball up the middle.
He just swung very hard and it happened.
Clatter wasn't trying to hit the middle against me, either.
It happens when big strong guys are committed
to their swings.

There's a universe of difference between
whether a shot was intentional or not.
If intentional, one can/should respond directly.
If not, it's sad what can happen
but it's no one's fault.
It's a risk we all take
walkin' on the field.

I've played ball with Gerald over 20 years.
He's a great guy and a terrific competitor.
And the senior softball community as I know it
is with him, wishing him
fast and full recovery.

I know he didn't do it on purpose. I was just trying to inform him the only way I know. How G was doing. We have been playing with and against each other (including the Stoneman) way to long to know that somethig like that wasn't intentional. Were cool Joe and I think G feels the same way.

Fat and Joe,
I know he did not try to hurt anyone, but someone in the thread seemed as though they were about to start somthing so I just wanted to get the opinion of someone that was there to put it on record.

I still love ya Joe, I hope your arm is doing better.
