Discussion: Las Vegas 65 AAA team needs 2 players

Hi Jeff I look forward to pitching for you this year as I turn 65 in March. Nice to play with guys who show a lot of class over the past 15 years playing against you with CJS and other team. I look forward to seeing you in Lake Havisu this weekend for couple of practice games to get ready for Feb in Vegas. I think with some of new guys picked up and also several new AZ guys we should have a fun season. We are so blessed to play a child's game and also to enjoy honest friendships that God has made it possible to be on the field against. Bless you for asking me to play with you this season. GI

Discussion: 1-1 or 0-0 Count

Sounds reasonable to me . have 65 and under start 1-1 and every 5 years change 1-1 for 70 group and so on every 5 years. After 15-20 years years all will play 1-1. Which most played any way when they were younger. I played 1-1 until I reached seniors. GI Happy New year

Discussion: SURVEY RESULTS

I also would be interested in voting. I have been pushing for 1-1 since it stopped after playing as a youngster and started playing senior. Bless you guys for looking into this as I would have loved to vote but did not get anything maybe it could have gone to junk mail. Many of you know that Senior Softball has a special place in my heart not only for letting me play but each year Terry and Rest have helped our Children's Home in Mesa each Nov.. As a pitcher I hate the 0-0 count as a batter the same because if I do swing at first pitch and not get a hit I could expect to hear the chatter from teammates. I am very hopefull it passes for 1-1 count. My nightmare will be if it is passes for 40's through age 60 and stays at 0-0 count for 65 and older division. I will start playing65's this year for first time as I turn 65 in March. I will play no matter what the decision and I am thankful for the chance to continue to play a child's game. Bless all of you and I look forward to a new season. Hugs, Gary Ingle

Discussion: Thanks senior softball- Sunshine Acres Golf tournament

I just wanted to thank Terry and his wonderful crew for helping again this year with the Sunshine Acres Golf tournament. We had 180 plus golfers Friday and the supper, auction went very well. Each year God continues to help us raise more money to raise needy homeless etc children in Mesa. Last year we raised over one Hundred Thousand for the one day golf event. We hope to reach this amount or better again this year with our 20th annv of Golf tournament. If any ever get the chance please stop by Home at 202 and Higley road in Mesa and take a tour. Terry you need to come back and see new areas since your last took tour. I missed not playing 60's Winter Worlds this year but look forward to 65 with Vegas Rezults team in Feb and God willing maybe I can catch on with a 60's team.I see CJS who I played last 12 years for walked through Fri tournament, Hope they can do as well through Sunday. Miss those guys a lot but it was fun to play them two weeks ago and was winning pitcher for the three games we played against them Best of luck to all this weekend. Remember God has a plan for each of us and it is such a victory to just step on the field. I count it a real honor to recently starting my 40th year working with youth in the PHX area and I hope for a few more. Hugs to all my friends. Gary Ingle

Discussion: Happy New Year

Just wanted to wish all a wonderful happy and safe New Year in 2016. We made it another year and over the past year have lost some close friends. I look at each time I get to the field as a blessing and find that as time passes I enjoy the friendship with you guys as much as I look forward to playing a game I still love to play. Bless each of you. Hugs to all. Gary Ingle-CJS Express 60's.

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: new rule 6.16 WIND OR SUN AFFECTING BOTH PITCHERS

First of all before I get to discussion, I want to say to all you that have or continue to have health issues that keep you from the game, We miss you. Terry I continue to keep you in my prayers. I heard from Cisco's wife the other day. Cisco who continues to put up a brave fight with his stroke here in PHX area keeps striving to improve . I miss you on the field and just seeing you in every day life. Bless each of you as you all work to overcome these difficult moments in life.
As for the sun issue, I played last month for 1st time where we CJS played with the sun right in the eyes and umpire told us about rule. As a hitter yes it was nice to see the ball but as a pitcher the batters get enough breaks. I am more concerned with what occurs when the pitcher cannot see the batters box due to sun. That is scary and moving to a better angle while giving up the middle makes it safer for us pitchers. Just a thought or if possible move field locations. We pitchers are already covered up so much at least we should be able to see the ball when it is coming at us. DC great to here from you my friend.
Please all of you have a safe and wonderful new year and if you happen to have a grudge against someone, FORGIVE, life is just to short to not at least be respectful to each other in the world. That's my Christmas wish for you all. May we all be color blind. Hugs and see you in 2016.Bless you, Gary Ingle

Discussion: Can you get faster?

Easy Dave, that's like me asking a lady if she is expecting a child (and was not) Dave and Webbie I found I gained some speed when I tried a walker. HA happy holidays my friends, Gary Ingle. And Dave you would have been proud of your senior softball 4-some at Sunshine Acres golf tournament . Finished 3rd with 220 golfers and walked up front and donated 3rd place money back to kids and challenged rest of top 5 teams to do the same. 4 of 5 teams turned money back to the kids.Bless all..PS Webbie what if you have Barney rubble legs.

Hi DBAX, hope you did well. You are right some of those AAA 60's sure looked good. I just wanted to say a quick thank you to the medical crew and EMT group that came out so fast to respond to helping one of our LVSSA Raiders 60's player that was overcome with heat stroke. It was nice to see so many trying to help him out. They took him to hospital and he went home today. I felt that we did a amazing job being short handed after losing Dale and two others to injuries but we still played 7 games winning 3 games in regular tournament after bracket games done. . I also want to thank Terry for giving us all another year to play softball. I am thankful and blessed to still be on the field. Take care Winter Worlds coming in Nov. May your best be better and your better BLESSED. Gary Ingle

Discussion: Religious ceremonies at tournaments

Just wanted to say thanks for all that gave a view. It may not be to long before that right is taken from us. To be honest Webbie you are right on and a wise man for taking a moral high ground. I would rather any day hear a positive word on the field than some of the words that should get a player kicked out of the game. I work with school kids everyday for past 38 years and they listen and learn from what they see dad grandpa etc do on the field and everywhere else. Hearing the F word every day has become a common thing . The kids think it is ok also and I have often been called a cuss word at school by a student and later a parent who is upset that his child was in trouble for expressing his feelings. I tell the kids no one ever wins in a fight or with a put down word. I struggle with our leaders saying old ways of living no longer matter. The recent 5-4 supreme court rule showed Christans no longer are respected but as believers we should understand that this is the way it will continue till the end. As was said before If I am wrong for believing than it will not matter we just die but what if we are right? I work with people of different and no beliefs Gays etc. I have no problem with that in fact they are some of my most trusted people I work with at school etc. They respect my views and I respect theirs right back.Best thing I remember about my dad who worked 40 plus years in steel mill was when another worker came up to me and said some people talk religion and others like your dad live it. I want to be the same as my father. I mess up but I hope I can find a way to make it right with you if I do offend. Hugs to all my friends playing a kids game. Peace-GI

Discussion: Best of luck this week

Hi all that are involved this next week in Vegas. Just wanted to say have fun enjoy the game and the people around you. We never know when this could our last chance to give a hug, say a kind word etc. I found out last night that someone close to me may have Cancer and it really makes other things seem so little. I love our game of softball and am really thankful to all of you who are a part of the game. With games starting in two days and our bracket starting on Friday there will be many people and faces from the past to say hello and play against again. Thanks to all of you and enjoy the ride. Bless you Terry, Fran, Dave and George and rest of crew for letting us old timers still plays a kid's game. As Rocky would say Keep punching Appolo. Hugs GI PS Webbie--- Move over Webbie, (That's a side joke between some of his teammates)
