I touched base with Dave Chaplin, who with the rest of the crew did a great job this year , on Bill’s issue. He thinks he will be able to keep the field in good condition despite morning games. I believe he is playing both morning and afternoon himself. He’s a gamer We may need more if we are going to have anything to worry about.

Regarding Gold Division Morning Softball: If you have AM & PM games who is suppose to maintain the field. Ken Dube & I maintained the field for ten years with help sometimes from others. John DaSilva over the past few years has maintained the field with sometimes help from others. It is not a 1 hour job. Not only the field but maintaining the equipment. We sometimes have trouble fielding pm games now were going to try to field am & pm games. THINK ABOUT IT.

I want to thank all my friends on the Relics who attended my sons funeral, sent cards and posted their condolences on the website. My son was 41 years old and passed away from a massive heart attack in his sleep. Your thoughtfulness is very comforting at this time.

Ray Zucco makes a persuasive case that for many morning play is the way to go. It’s cooler, less chance of a rainout, no silver teams anxious to get on the field and time to play golf after the game. So I’m for it. But I have pledged to the Board that if we cannot get 50 guys to play in a four team 4:15 league we will stay with the status quo and morning play can be on a pick up basis. If this idea passes I will do whatever I can to make it work for everybody As I’ve said it could be a chance for more games for more guys.

I’m very sorry Steve. As I cannot attend the meeting I want to express my opinion on 2 issues. First I urge gold members to approve the use, by members over 75, of Mikens or other like bats. Every year means most will be weaker and slower with outfield defenses creeping in. Plus we only get 2 strikes / ab. I urge those who used them in play to speak to the safety issue. I don’t believe it’s a problem. Thanks Bob for bringing this issue to the floor.

Rick. You are right. I can't find any other store near us that sells bats. Dick's is actually not bad. I just bought a bat for $249 that was on sale at Dick's for $199. The other thing you could do is wait till the season starts and try some different bats that other people have and see what you like before you buy.

"Rick. If you want to handle a bat before you buy it, the best advice is to visit a store. I know of a couple if you need help." Mikey: That's what I've been wanting to find out. Everyone I talked to says steer clear of Dick's but where else is there? Obviously I can't buy a bat online because there's no way to handle it first. What other stores are good?

Who can help me about bats? I want to get a new bat with the following conditions: - Must be useable in the Relics league. - Must be new. - 26 or 27 ounce. - Must be balanced. - I must be able to handle it before purchasing. How do I go about finding it? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Our Gin Rummy games are scheduled to begin today with a "practice session" at the Longmeadow Senior Center from 1 to 4. We're going to be playing partners, a big fat penny a point, and games will be played at the LSC or ELSC on Wednesdays and Tuesdays. If interested, we'd love to have you join us -- call me at 413-262-5519 (c) or 413-567-5906 (h). Thanks. See you at February's meeting!

We saw Phil in Costco parking lot today. He looked good and was in good spirits. Any news on Ralph Becker?

I talked to Phil Wednesday. He was still at the hospital but was expecting to be released any day-They treated his blood clots with medication so no operation was necessary. He sounded very good. Smitty
