Discussion: Prayers for Wayne Henck and family

Many of you know Wayne and many don't, but Wayne is an 8 year liver transplant survivor and a retired Atlanta detective. Wayne has developed abscesses on his liver and went through a very rough period this month. The liver problems have taken a toll on his heart and he is not strong enough to have another Liver transplant and now Doctors have told him that there is nothing more that they can do for him except try to keep him comfortable. He will be moved from Emory Hospital in Atlanta into a palliative care facility with Hospice. Wayne has many friends and has played with many ball teams and everybody is a friend to Wayne. I have had the pleasure of playing with him on Huffman Electric and several other teams and wish him and his family peace and comfort during these trying times. He has a website setup on caringbridge.org where you may visit for updates and tributes for Wayne. He will always be on the Lord's All-American Team and in the lineup everyday.
Please remember to pray for his comfort in this trying time.

Discussion: ratings

Totally agree but what's even worse is a team that won Vegas last year as a Major team and now playing up one age group with 5 or more players from that team is still playing Major. Only certain teams get correct rating but until it is corrected SSUSA will continue to have Teams not playing in tournaments. Lost $$$ but they don't even care as long as Director gets his way.

Discussion: Religious ceremonies at tournaments

We usually pray both before our games as a team and after the games with both teams on the mound. I feel that the mound sessions creates a unique bonding session for both teams as we submit our prayer list and concerns for family, friends and loved ones along with all those who served in the Armed Forces. It also gives the opportunity to offer praises in those case where prayers have been answered. Recently we offered praise for a teammate who celebrated 8 years of success for a liver transplant and now he is battling an unknown infection and with GOD's will he can continue to be an active member of the TEAM.
AMEN!!!!!

Discussion: Unloader Knee Brace

I've been wearing one since 2005, when I was told I needed knee replacement. Along with the Ortho-Visc shots I'm still going on the knee. Have worn out 3 DonJoys and currently using a Bledsloe. Like the Bledsloe much better than the DonJoys. Just takes some getting used to running but much better than a knee replacement. Never have pain when wearing the brace, have even started wearing it for golf. Make sure you get a good fit, I had one that took a lot of adjusting and it never did as good as the others. I would have had many knee injuries without it or just one career ending.

Discussion: Bill Gore's wife Panhandle Hitmen

Here's an update on Bill Gore's wife, Keep on Praying: Bill Gore's wife Donna remains in a Las Vegas hospital, and is doing somewhat better since they have removed her ventilator and feeding tube. They even had her walking a little today. They also plan to move her out of ICU tomorrow if her CT Scan checks out good. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers as she continues to show progress.

Discussion: Bill Gore's wife Panhandle Hitmen

Guys and Gals we need prayers for Bill Gore's wife who had a stroke and now has a blood clot in her heart. They have drilled her skull to relieve pressure but can't do anything with the clot in the heart until she is in better shape. She is currently in ICU and we all will say uplifting prayers for her. Please pass along the prayer request along with your prayers.

Discussion: DH

In ISSA and ASA 65 and over use 11 fielders and bat as many as desired. In SPA and SSUSA the 11 fielders start at 70 and bat as many as want. This is Senior Ball rules.

Discussion: Worlds in Vegas

Logistics were good but only having one umpire in double elimination games just isn't acceptable, especially when he doesn't know the rules and then cops an attitude when we tried to ask questions. Called batter out for stepping on line, not out of box, doesn't know it's the location of the ball for fair and foul not the fielder, doesn't call batter out for retreating from first, and totally misses call when 3rd base coach all but tackles runner to stop him from scoring. Surely it's bad enough to only have one umpire but totally incompetent just isn't acceptable, they were all easy calls. I know we are not the Majors with instant replay but he didn't need instant replay, just the knowledge to make the correct calls. Then when we had him the second time it was all about him and not the game, fortunately he had a good partner the second time.

Using the Schutt metal and took a bad hop off of chin/cheek area, I'm sure it saved a broken jaw.

Discussion: Jose and Ozzie Canseco looking to play 50 and over together in Las Vegas September tournament

Since they are probably on nobody's roster how will they be picked up. We all know they would be rated 50 major+ and pickups are supposed to be from the next age group, so they can't play 50, maybe 45+?????? Anybody have the answer?????

Discussion: West Coast Aftershock -

Had a ball come to me in Birmingham this past weekend that was obviously cooler than the rest, not saying it was iced, just cooler. Maybe the other balls were in the sun and warmer than average but I immediately noticed the coolness being a pitcher. Gave the ball to umpire and it was ok'd for play. End of Story.

Discussion: Reebok Barrage

Sent a Barrage back with less than 40 hits (30oz) and it was received on May 29th. I heard from them Friday saying they were sorry for the failure and that a full refund check would be issued in 5 to 8 weeks. Now it you just reviewed and approved refund why does it take so long to get the money refunded???????????
