Discussion: home plate mats

I have just one tourney a year, in early March, so I found mats at Lowe's for $10 each.

Discussion: Shorty, Where Are You?

48 years ago, at 12:01 in the morning, Shorty was in the Shower located in the Northwestern corner of Firebase Trooper. Trooper was home to Charlie Troop, 2/1 Cavalry, 100 miles South of Cam Ranh Bay.

An enemy artillery attack started and the first round hit a tree which stood a few feet from the shower. As flares filled the night sky, I ran to the door of the supply room located in the Northeastern corner of the base. I was almost 100 yards from the shower. As the supply room door flung open, the first sight I saw was Shorty, buck naked, in high gear, racing across Trooper!! His bare feet seemed to hardly touch the ground. Shorty made to his hooch; secured some clothing and his weapon and we made it through the night along with the rest of Trooper's headquarters platoon. Our First Sergeant called us the "Purple Gang".

Just wanted to let Shorty and the Gang know I still think about them.

So sorry to hear that Henry Solis passed. His family and players are certainly in my prayers.

TM44, it was just 3 gg; hopefully, everyone got their fill of practice for the upcoming season. Some of the teams may want to post their records on here.

Steve, you are right. Will make necessary corrections next year. Thanks for sharing that good advice.

Thanks, Joe. Looking forward to the season, for sure.

Wanted to say thanks to all the teams who participated; Derby City came all the way from Louisville, Ky!!

Thinking about hosting 65/70 teams on Friday next year and everyone else on Saturday. That way I can accommodate more 50/55 teams. Had to turn some down; hurt my little heart!!

Let me know what you think.

Sorry, Cowboy, but there is no crying and/or hugs in baseball/softball!!

However, the good news is the heavy rains this morning went north of Bham by and large. We will be ready to play Saturday morning. See everyone at the park. Thanks and God bless

Discussion: Deep South needs a middle infielder

We have lost a player due to an accident; probably for most of the year. Our newly acquired SS would prefer to play MI; so, if you are a solid SS looking for a team, please let me know.

Discussion: I Believe!

This past week was a bit difficult for my wife. It was the 10th anniversary of her Father's death. They were always close; my F-I-L was a very good man. This past Friday was the anniversary of his burial.
About 10 a.m. she and I were actually booking rooms for tournaments when the land line rang. 2 very sharp, quick rings occurred and stopped. The rings were not long enough for caller I.D. to make an identification.
So my wife hit star69 which identifies the last number to call. It was her Father's old number which is disconnected! She started crying; my daughter hit star69 again to verify. She confirmed the number!
I assured her that he was just touching base; saying hello and he loved her!
