Discussion: Five year battle finally won

My wife and I have been in a 5+ year battle to get custody of two of our grandkids. We have been to trial three times only to have AZ Dept of Child Safety deny us. We went to trial again this week, and were finally granted full legal guardianship of my 17 year old grandson and 7 year old granddaughter. Their safety and well being have been our utmost concern the last five years as we fostered them in our home. We now know that that care will continue with no chance of going back to the abusive home they came from.

The reason for this post is to thank the dozens of teammates, wives, players and anyone else, who over the last five years sent prayers, support and encouraging messages to us. At every tournament players from all over the country reached out to ask if we had resolution, now, we can finally say yes!

So again, my wife Susie and I thank you all,

Kenny

Discussion: What's the call?

This came up in our umpire meeting. Batter hits ball down third base line. First bounce is in fair territory. Third baseman is between third and home. Before the ball touches the ground in foul territory, he reaches across the foul line and fields the ball in foul territory. What's the call, fair or foul?

Discussion: 2021 Western States Championships

I have to agree with Mike. After a rainout on Thursday, we were able to play four, five inning games before turning the fields over for league ball. The maintenance crew did a fantastic job on the infields removing water, making them playable and pumping water off the one outfield corner.
I don't know what ball we hit because I hit whatever is pitched, but it seemed to be fine and no one was complaining.
Thanks to Rick for mixing things up, allowing us to play different teams.

I can no longer access pdf files on the senior softball website. Has something changed that I'm not aware of? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Discussion: What's the call?

Batter hits a short pop up that lands in foul territory and spins back into fair territory before reaching third base bag and before being touched by a defensive player, foul or fair ball?

Discussion: Softball family member needs our help

Update on Rod's wife. She is still unable to stand or walk and has lost her short term memory. I want to reach out to those that have sent thoughts and prayers to Mary and to those that have donated. We have yet to meet our goal in helping Rod and Mary. Please share this with others and perhaps post it on facebook. Your help in any way will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Kenny

Discussion: Softball family member needs our help

I'm reaching out to the softball community to help a former teammate of mine in need. Rod Grubb's wife Mary contracted West Nile Virus over the summer and was put on life support. Although she was able to recover from that she suffered a massive stroke and now requires 24 hour care. Rod is self employed and unable to work as he takes care of Mary. Rod has always been the first to help someone in need and now he needs our help. My wife and I have set up a go fund me account to help with the mounting medical bills, mortgage and general needs. Please pass this on to anyone that may be able to help, if not financially, then in prayer.

Thanks in advance,
Kenny Vaught, current member of Timberworks 65's, and formerly with Nighhawks, Joe Browns All Stars, AZ Rogue and Fangrabbers/Towtime.

Discussion: A fifth rating?

This just in! The NCAA and NBA are going to follow SSUSA's guidelines and will institute the following rules to try to keep an even playing field. The Golden State Warriors will now have to spot 10 points or give an extra player and Alabama's football team will only be able to play their starters in the first and third quarters!

Discussion: Remembering Shark

Cinco de Mayo has special meaning for a lot of people across the country. For me and many other members of our softball family the date is also a reminder of the passing of Mike Ayo, also known as Shark.It will be one year since he lost his battle with cancer. Shark will forever be missed and never forgotten. Continue to rest in peace my friend...
Kenny, former teammate on Fangrabbers, Rogue and Tucson Bandits.

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

Discussion: Mike"Shark" Ayo Prescott Memorial

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.

Thanks, Kenny
