Discussion: Softball Gear

As the softball season dwindles down (for us northerners anyway) I wonder if the number of new & used bats and other gear on sites such as eBay are increasing and if so will the glut knock down prices???

Shelby Twp. MI 55+ Mondays and Wednesdays 10am. We are down to only 2 teams in the upper division so we are playing the middle division (7 teams) in crossover games this season. We have to give 'considerations' when playing the middle division but it is what it is and it's better than playing against the same team twice a week from May through August....

We had been hitting (weather permitting) at the local city park...until today. I got this email from our coordinator Don today:

Six of us were at the park today when someone from the Parks and Rec dept came by and told us we had to leave. The park is now closed to all outdoor activity with the exception
Of walkers and bicyclists…………No idea when we might be able to play again…….

The only impetus one needs to get off the sofa and tackle that honey-do list is that stupid Emu-Limu commercial with the 74 Dodge Duster that is running ad nauseum 24/7 on all the channels!!!

Discussion: COVID-19 Treatment

For what it's worth, I got this email the other day. I don't see anything that is harmful in the advice.

From member of the Stanford hospital board.
>>
>>> This is their feedback for now on Corona virus: The new Coronavirus may not show sign of infection for many days. How can one know if he/she is infected? By the time they have fever and/or cough and go to the hospital, the lung is usually 50% Fibrosis and it's too late. Taiwan experts provide a simple self-check that we can do every morning. Take a deep breath and hold your breath for more than 10 seconds. If you complete it successfully without coughing, without discomfort, stiffness or tightness, etc., it proves there is no Fibrosis in the lungs, basically indicates no infection. In critical time, please self-check every morning in an environment with clean air. Serious excellent advice by Japanese doctors treating COVID-19 cases: Everyone should ensure your mouth & throat are moist, never dry. Take a few sips of water every 15 minutes at least. Why? Even if the virus gets into your mouth, drinking water or other liquids will wash them down through your throat and into the stomach. Once there, your stomach acid will kill all the virus. If you don't drink enough water more regularly, the virus can enter your windpipe and into the lungs. That's very dangerous. Please send and share this with family and friends. Take care everyone and may the world recover from this Coronavirus soon. IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT - CORONAVIRUS 1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold 2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose. 3. This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees. It hates the Sun. 4. If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne. 5. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours - so if you come into contact with any metal surface - wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap. 6. On fabric it can survive for 6-12 hours. normal laundry detergent will kill it. 7. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice. 8. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes, but - a lot can happen during that time - you can rub your eyes, pick your nose unwittingly and so on. 9. You should also gargle as a prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice. 10. Can't emphasis enough - drink plenty of water! THE SYMPTOMS 1. It will first infect the throat, so you'll have a sore throat lasting 3/4 days 2. The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia. This takes about 5/6 days further. 3. With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing. 4. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you're drowning. It's imperative you then seek immediate attention.

One thing is for sure, with basically nowhere to go, the grounds of my estate are already ahead of last year in seasonal preparation! I've got lots of yard work already done. Plus, with the Lenten season in full swing and the Friday evening fish fry's at the Knights of Columbus cancelled the annual spring diet is working good too! Always a positive somewhere guys, eh?

Discussion: 100% quarantine, 30 days

I just heard that same rumor from someone else who claims to have heard it from a friend who has a friend in the military. Staring to sound like an urban legend...? In any event, you just cant announce a quarantine nationwide to start. People need time to prepare for it. There's a lot of logistics involved when considering 360 million (and that just documented population) people are involved. And what's with all these arbitrary crowd limit numbers? 100 people, and 5oo people limits, etc.? Okay only groups of 100 people, no more, so what if person 101 is clean and person number 1 or 2 is infected??? Ridiculous. Went out and hit 2 days in a row here in Michigan (it was over 39 degrees & sunny, nice spring day).

jfsully, agreed. This is senior softball. I would think given all the wars, hurricanes, tornadoes, crime, earthquakes, quicksand, 'deadly mosquitos' global warming, ufo abductions, fires, famine, plagues, epidemics, the dust bowl, the Chicago Fire, atomic fallout, automobile crashes, BB-guns,and other cataclysmic world events we somehow managed to make it through we'll get through this too.

"CDC recommends that gatherings of 50 people or more in US be canceled, postponed in next 8 weeks because of coronavirus."

It's always that pesky 51st person that does it, not the 50th!

Dbax, apology accepted. Hey, we all just want to play the game we love. IMOP I am just sick and tired of the ginned up hysteria (much of it politically motivated) surrounding this virus. There are those in need of a political angle to regain relevancy for their party. Those same people are dead set intense on stringing this false panic out until election day in November. In Michigan you only get so many seasonal ball playing days and they are approaching us now. I'll be G-Da_ _ed if I'm ready to let them cast a pall over my entire summer! Good luck this season to all.

Discussion: Corona Virus (COVID-19)

D' with all due respect we can disagree. I stand by my post. The swine flu outbreak in this country in 2009 and 2010. In April 2009 it was declared a pandemic, 6 months later in October after 1000 citizens had already died it was declared a national health emergency. Dr. Siegel, one of the Fox doctors was on TV explaining this 2 nights ago. He confirmed: Sixty million people were infected. Three hundred thousand were hospitalized. The numbers with the coronavirus are not even close. They are barely a fraction of a percentage compared to the swine flu. I don't think we even have 300,000 cases of Corona virus worldwide.

February 12th, 2010, archives, Reuters news: “Swine Flu Has Killed Up to 17,000 in U.S.” February 12th, 2010: “H1N1 Swine Flu Has Killed as Much as 17,000 Americans Including 1,800 Children – The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported on Friday the swine flu pandemic put as many people in the hospital as during the normal influenza season, but most were younger adults and children instead of the elderly.”And it was during the months when usually very little or no flu is circulating, the CDC said. “The CDC estimates that between 41 million and 84 million cases of the 2009 swine flu occurred between April 2009 and January 16th, 2010.” So it’s maybe more than 60 million, 84 million cases of swine flu. CDC said in a statement, “But between 880 and 1,800 children died. Up to 13,000 adults under the age of 65, and only 1,000 to 2,000 elderly died.”
So the swine flu got the young, 84 million cases, 1,800 children dead, 300,000 total infected, 13,000 adults. That’s a February 12th, 2010, archives at Reuters. Seventeen thousand Americans dead.

Discussion: Corona Virus (COVID-19)

I agree with Rick. With the H1N1, it took Obama 6 months to declare a National Health Emergency. And that virus came in right across our own Southern border. According to Dr. Mark Siegal 17 thousand American Citizens died from the 'swine flu', over 60 million American Citizens caught it and over 300 thousand were hospitalized in the US. Where was the outcry and media hype then? Was anything cancelled? I don't think so at least not on the scale we are seeing today. What is so different now? I'll withhold comment on that. Routinely, we have about 30,000 yearly deaths here due to the flu season which runs through August, why not cancel everything every year because it's flu season? Right now the majority of deaths so far with corona have come from a single senior home in Washington state, (sedentary people with compromised health issues). This is way too politicized. My neighbor is a care giver for an elderly man. She had to call 911 the other day because he was having a heart attack, at the hospital it turned out that he was having a panic attack due to his worrying about the corona virus. I believe there are two things pushing this hysteria, election year politics and lawyers telling these big organizations to cover their a_ _ es and cancel out events. I am disappointed that my particular party has bought into this as much as they have.

Discussion: Two Umpires make opposite call on same play

It's always good to talk to your partner before the game. Whenever we used to do a 2 umpire format the base umpire always went out to make the call in the outfield and the home plate umpire picked his men up on the bases.
