READ, STOP, & THINK ! Please, stay on the subject matter.
To all SENIORS. I started a post & my post got HI-JACKED, by SENIORS that seem to want to be heard & PERSONS that do not seem to be able to down load what was written...... PERIOD.

Hit' a ball thru the 4 - 6 hole is part of the game. PERIOD. Hit' a ball w/ in 5', left or right of the pitcher is go' middle. If, this happens only a few times in a game, THEN IT is part of the game. PERIOD.

But, when 1 or 2 players on a team hit every damn ball @ the pitcher or w/ in a foot or 2 is wrong. PERIOD. THAT WAS THE POST. I am not that good of a hitter to hit 6 to 8 or all 10 @ bats right @ a pitcher. No, UNDERSTAND??

R U Senior, listen'?? In one game, (2 ) 60 yr ol' SENIORS, hit every damn ball @ the other teams pitcher. One player hit 3 live drives in a roll that 1 pitcher caught. This same SENIOR, also, in a 2 games back to back, also, hit 2 - 3 hard one hoppers back @ the same teams pitcher. This same 60 yr ol' player, knocked the glove of the opposing pitcher once.

Team A ,had many hard balls hit @ their pitcher. Team B's, pitcher was knocked down twice in one game by Team A.

These r the facts as best as I can remember. Mr. Wood, did not want to believe this. Bob & I, have talked..... Bob, finds this hard to believe, & so, do I. But, I was there. I hope that A.C. & Eistein, (my cellmates 4 that wkend) & Tag, (Team B's pitcher) will respond.

SENIORS.... start u're own post, please. Stop HI-JACK' & if, u do not know & where not watch' the game(s), please, shut the h.... up.

My post was about grown Grandpaps, knock' the hell out of the other teams pitcher. 2 wrongs do not make a right. BUT, WHAT IS LEFT??? Park' lot fights..

Stoneman I hear what you are saying but I see two other problems with your thesis that are really never addressed here or if they are addressed here this is where it stays.

1. We hear from those who are worried about the number of bounty hunters going after pitcher (that may be too strong of language) on here all the time. When are we going to start hearing these voices of concern on the field of play. I read it here, I see it here, and yet I watch and listen to some of the same guys who post on here about their concern for the pitcher cheer loudly when one of their teammate hits a ball at the pitcher that drives in a run. Now the Stoneman as far as I know does not fit into the above mentioned observation but as I witnessed at the SPA there are some who do. Stop your teammates first then talk to others.

2. The other side of the coin and that is the crying wolf all the time. I watched a guy hit a ball 10 feet over the pitchers head at the SPA that hit the fence in the air. I then watched and listen to the pitcher start yelling the middle is open and acting out. Later he stated to some of fans he was just getting into the other teams head. Well that is all fine and good but what happens when you cry wolf too much? It is the same with the bat issue but that is another topic.

PS Stoneman I will not be seeing you in Vegas. E-mail me if you have question bro.
