Discussion: Mike "Shark" Memorial

For those that knew Mike, it would be an honor if you could make time to attend his Memorial.For those that did not know Mike, it would be an honor to have you join his friends and family to remember a senior softball family member that left us way to early.Shark was an outfielder for Tow Time, Fan Grabbers, AZ Rogue and most recently, the Tucson Bandits.
Thanks, Kenny

I would like to thank Bucky's for participating in our memorial for Mike Ayo. I would also like to thank the players and their families from AZ Legends, AOS, Primetime, Alpha Dawgz and all the other random people that joined us on the field. It was a nice tribute to see close to 100 people remember a friend and team mate.Also, a shout out to the tournament directors for making time for us.

Discussion: Prayers needed

Mike was not only a teammate but a good friend to many. He fought a courageous battle for the last few months and just like on the field, refused to give up until the last out. He had many friends and family with him his last few days, giving him the kind of support he gave others. Mike was there for me and my wife when I was going through my medical problems, willing to do anything and everything for us.
He will be sorely missed, I loved him like a brother. RIP my friend...

On another note, I want to personally thank Johnny "Hose" Amjel for all he has done for Mike. John has earned a new respect from me in a way words can't describe.

Discussion: Fellow player needs help

On behalf of Mike "Shark" Ayo, I want to thank all of those who contributed to the gofundme account and sent prayers and well wishes Mike's way. Mike received funds from Canada to New York and all places between.Contributions totaled $3250, just shy of our goal of $5000.This will go a long way in helping Mike out.

Discussion: Fellow player needs help

This is Kenny, outfielder for Nighthawks, formerly with Joe Browns and AZ Rogue.I am writing this on behalf of Mike Ayo, a teammate and good friend of mine. Mike has been recently diagnosed with acute kidney failure in both kidneys. He has been hospitalized for almost two weeks and has under gone numerous dialysis treatments in an attempt to "jump start" his kidneys.He has now had surgery to install a permanent port for treatment as his kidneys have not responded to treatment. Mike was there for me when I was having kidney issues, 7 surgeries in 5 years, and also when I almost lost my leg to MRSA. It is my time to be there for him and I am asking my fellow softball family members for help.A go fund me account has been set up to help Mike with his medical bills and to help pay his household bills. The link can be reached at: gofundme.com/2g7faw4c. Please pass this on to any and all that may be able to help and please keep Mike in your prayers and thoughts.

Thanks in advance for your help and prayers,
Kenny Vaught

Discussion: EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR RULING • WMC 50-Major Matter

How come nobody is complaining that Joe Brown's Allstars 60 major plus team was allowed to play 55 major at the Phoenix Winter Worlds? Oh that's right, they won one game and lost five....I guess the major plus doesn't always dominate the lower major division!

Discussion: Prayers for my son

My son has been released from Barrows. I am disappointed to say, all of the testing came back as inconclusive as to what is causing his seizures. At this time there is no cure for him and he will be put back on anti-seizure medications in hopes that over time he will self heal.Thanks to all of you that sent prayers and thoughts for his healing. I still believe there is an answer and have not given up hope.

Discussion: Prayers for my son

Two and a half years ago my son Kody was left on the side of the road by a hit and run driver while riding his bike. Although he did not suffer any apparent serious injuries, he began having grand mal seizures shortly after. He has been hospitalized numerous times and has been close to death twice due to seizures and complications from medicines. Tomorrow he is being admitted to Barrows Neurological where he will be taken off his medications and monitored to try to find out what is causing his seizures. I ask my softball family to put him in your prayers. He is a 37 year old father of three that wants nothing more than to be able to lead a normal life and support his family.
Thanks for reading,

Discussion: NorCal Warriors bumped to Major Plus

Rogue 60's was bumped to major plus after two tournaments. We have a 10 and 5 record, winning the SW Regional with a 4 and 2 record and going 6 and 3 in the Winter Worlds. The decision was based on 12 games, for some reason three games, all losses, did not count, and a fabricated run differential based on those 12 games. We hit 11 home runs and averaged under 20 runs a game in the 15 we played. Our appeal was denied because we only played two tournaments and SSUSA requires three for their appeal process, yet we were moved after two tournaments. Like the Warriors, we have played a total of 5 different teams in these two tournaments, not much to base a decision on. We too, will play out the season, as major plus, to the best of our ability.

Discussion: Yarnell AZ firefighters

On behalf of AZ Rogue 55's, I would like to send our condolences to the families and friends of the 19 firefighters from the Granite Mountain Hotshots, from Prescott AZ, who lost their lives Sunday fighting the forest fire in Yarnell AZ. The fire burned half of the town of 700 people, including almost 300 homes. Our prayers and thoughts go out to all of the residents of Yarnell, the surviving firefighters that were injured and to all grieving for the loss of home and life.

Discussion: Thanks to Smith Electric and staff in Prescott

My stepmom Sami, asked me to send a heartfelt thank you to everyone for their thoughts and prayers concerning my Dad. She was overwhelmed by the number of emails, phone calls and responses on the message board. Again, it shows what kind of family we have in senior softball. My Dad is doing much better and plans to be at the Prescott tournament in July.

Discussion: Thanks to Smith Electric and staff in Prescott

I want to send out a special thanks to the Smith Electric 60's team and the staff at the Tom Tobin Memorial Tournament in Prescott. In a tie game in the championship, while on deck, I noticed my 86 year old Dad not doing well. As I asked him if he was alright, he began vomiting and seemed to be on the verge of passing out. I left to attend to my Dad, as did numerous others. We managed to get him in the dugout and 911 was called. While tending to my Dad's needs, the entire Smith Electric team came over to offer assistance. At that time, Smith Electric announced the game was over and would go down as a tie, as my Dad's health was far more important than any game. This goes to show how senior softball players are one big family. I can't thank everyone enough for your help, thoughts and prayers and hopefully answered or returned all your calls and emails. I am happy to report my Dad is doing well and has been released from the hospital with a severe case of food poisoning and dehydration. When we return to Prescott in July, I'm sure he and my step mom will be on the sidelines, loud as ever, with thanks to all.
