Discussion: Looking For Some Feedback

I have a new team starting in 2017. We are partially sponsored--AA/AAA. I recently shared my personal philosophy to our team. Just wondering if others had thoughts or comments or anything that you have developed and shared with your teams. Here it is:

1. Team is important. We win or lose as a team.
2. We leave the game on the field.
3. We support one another; encourage one another; defend one another.
4. We are 65 years (plus); we will not make every play; we will not get a hit every time; NO NEED FOR EXCUSES. Just make a commitment to try and do your best, according to your capabilities.
5. A good sense of humor will help!!
6. If you can throw a strike every time, just ask and I will let you pitch.
7. "Let him without sin, cast the first stone".
8. Always run it out going to first.
9. Use two hands in the outfield, just to make sure.
10. Always hit your cut-off.
11. Coaches at 1B and 3B always.
12. I am not the coach. I am the manager/administrator. I am not a dictator. I need your help; I am always open to suggestions.
13. Our wives who attend, the umpires and opposition, all deserve our courtesy and respect. NO PROFANITY or foul language permitted.
14. Finally, Softball and ALCOHOL/DRUGS do not mix. Off the field is your business; on the field is mine.

Discussion: Hope Your Holiday and Holy Day are as Blessed as Mine!!

Last year my wife and I got matching heating pads from Walmart!! This year is even better; we have matching C-Paps and grab-sticks for picking up pine cones in our yard.

Seriously, Our Lord has always been gracious to me--family, friends. This year is even more blessed. Our granddaughter's kidney transplant was a great success. She grew an inch in 3 weeks!!
Two weeks after surgery, she bounded into our den and proclaimed "Grandpa, I have never felt this good in all my life!".

God bless our softball family is my prayer.

Discussion: Thanks For Your Prayers and Thoughtfulness

A little over 3 years ago, my granddaughter was attacked by a pitbull. She was 9. She has suffered from kidney disease her entire life. There was a great outpouring from the softball community, especially here in the South where we live, with calls, cards, gifts, and especially prayer.

I was continually approached at tourneys with inquiries about her condition and need for a kidney transplant as well. She has had 2 cosmetic surgeries on her face to correct the damage from the attack and all is well.

And the best news of all is that this past Tuesday, our granddaughter received a kidney transplant!! Almost immediately, her new kidney began functioning at 100% and she is doing exceedingly well. Already out of ICU and will be home in just a few days. Our Lord has been very gracious to her and our family. A portion of that came through all of you; thank you from the bottom of my heart. Steve

Discussion: A Crazy Rumination!!

I have heard that several new bats are coming out soon with more "sticky" on them. So, I was wondering: What if I barely swing and when contact is made, the ball actually sticks to the barrel of the bat! Do I throw the bat into fair territory and run to first? Will I be safe?!!!

Retired with a lot of time on my hands!
