POINDEXTER RETIRES
There was never a pitcher who could stop Clyde Poindexter Phillips. Even with 2 metal hips he was still one of the most prolific hitters in senior softball. Finally the big guy met his match,Father Time. Enough is enough. Not able to perform at his high level of performance on a consistent basis Clyde Phillips is hanging it up. But in typical [POINDEXTER)fashion he goes out with a Triple Crown All TOURNAMENT SELECTION. However you want to call him, Clyde, Point, Dex , whatever ? he is still one of the best, he is the man ! All of us hate to see you go , (maybe not certain pitchers). Clyde , gonna miss you man. Take care !

I played with and against Clyde for more then 30 years and he's always been one of the most dominating hitters in the game. In his younger years he was as fast as they came and had a cannon for an arm. I still remember in one of our Master tournament games when he was walked intentionally with the bases loaded. Congratulations Clyde on a great career.

Clyde "Point" may have retired from active tournament play, but he's still very active. He likes to share the knowledge he's learned over the last 70 (ok...40 or so) years. He's been a mentor and friend over the last year and is always willing to help a teammate (and sometimes a competitor) improve their game. Clyde wants to promote Senior Softball and has always done it with class. Sometimes, tough words get the job done and sometimes, it just takes a small tweak. "Point" knows the difference. Gonna miss seeing the big bombs buddy. Loved watching you jump the gate.

I've been associated with this man for 10 years. Even got the opportunity to play on the same squad for one of those seasons. What this man has brought to Senior softball, especially Southern California is nothing short of amazing. What a lot of people don't know is the amount of work that "Point" puts in during a typical week to be able to hit those BOMBS come the weekend, or the amount of work he puts in so that others can practice their skills in the infield as well as the outfield. I guess you were right when you said we are going to miss you when your gone! Thank you for everything you have taught me.
