Thanks Bruce & JAH#4.You guys know what you are talking about.For those of you that have never heard of JC Phelps,he was one of the top 5 hitters in the world.The den is his home looks like a museum with all of his awards.JC was 45 yrs old.He was boat riding Fri.afternoon on Lake Cumberland in his home state of Kentucky,with his daughter,when he was stricken.She called Myra & 911 & got the attention of some other boaters.Some are in the medical field.They did manage to get him to the hospital before his heart stopped.I met JC 20 yrs ago.Saw him last summer at a SUPER MAJOR in IND.He gave me a big smile & asked me what have I been up to.I told him that I have been playing SENIOR SOFTBALL for 12 yrs & how big it is nationwide.Right away with his big friendly grin he said " well,Im 44,ya think you can get me on a team when Im 50?"

God rest his soul.

Just to be over 50 is a blessing but to still have the strength to play this game we know and love is special. May God add compassion and grace to his blessings so we may be a comfort to those suffering among us.
