  1. I liked the 3 game series. Pitching depth and many other factors made the series interesting. As far as the automatic region berth changing....what sense does that make? Takes all importance off the regular season. Are they going to now have a banquet and invite every player and make sure they all get a trophy as well? Better yet, why even play a district schedule? How about having a blind draw for the tournament and playing it out that way.. and even make it more interesting by having the winner advance to the region as well as the 4th place team. Talk about strategy..how many times can you pitch backwards to get into that slot. Why the 4th place team you ask? Because that makes as much sense as the regular season district champion not getting an automatic berth into the region. Thank you and good night now.

  4. You would have to say , he must have been around the plate enough to give Columbia their first lost of the district. Right? I may be wrong, but my understanding is that he pitched in something like an 8-1 loss in the tourney? As I mentioned before I was not there and the only details I got were that he hit 90 but was not around the plate.
  5. The kid did hit 90. I did not see but was told by the scout that had the gun on him. I understand he wasn't necessarily throwing it over the plate, but did hit 90.
  6. Lebanon won 6-3. Siegel won with a walk off homer by Fullerton. They are playing Blackman as you are reading this.
  7. Update Courtesy of Field Reporter David Limbaugh: Live from the field, Limbaugh reports that all games are banged for Saturday at Riverdale and Blackman. Games will be played at 3:00 and 5:30 on Sunday at both Riverdale and Blackman (weather permitting of course.)
  8. Blackman 5 Lebanon 2 Final Siegel 7 Cookeville 3 Game 1 Final Siegel 9 Cookeville 8 Btm. 5 (Siegel is home team in this game)

  10. 1. Did not see the apology, so I was just sticking up for a friend. 2. I have a life. Just staying around the house this weekend, since that is what they are requesting here in Murfreesboro to avoid congestion while cleaning up. 3. Looks like it is your head it is getting to, since you had never posted before this topic and you have now posted 7 times on one topic. You might want to go check on that little sheep out back, it's probably starting to miss you. That's a joke, so don't think I was getting all personal and talking about people that own sheep or anything. Best of luck to your Babe Ruth team this year!
  11. Dude, what is your deal? Have you met Limbaugh? Why don't you go to a Riverdale game, ask to talk to Limbaugh and then be a jerk to his face. I could care less about your comments towards me, but Limbaugh is one of the most giving and caring people I have ever met. Not to mention if you end up not liking him, you can reserve a table for one for that club, cause you are the charter member and only member that many of us know. You have taken a couple of posts that were poking fun at people that constantly second guess Coach Chaffin's coaching ability and somehow misunderstood or twisted in your head to be against Babe Ruth coaches and taken it personal. There are many fine people in Cookeville, including Babe Ruth coaches that I don't believe Limbaugh said anything negative about. (If you can find the post, paste it and I will be proved wrong.) There seem to be a few that like to get on here and bash the coach. To spell it out for you, when I made my "best 9 or worst 9" comment, it was poking fun at the people that do get on here and constantly second guess Chaffin. I like Chaffin and he knew it was joking around on our end. Just like Limbaughs lineup that had good, bad, better, best.....etc. for the batting order, it was a joke. Sorry you don't get it. I said all that to say this. Limbaugh, nor myself have anything against Babe Ruth coaches or Coach Chaffin. As I mentioned before, I too, get paid not a dime to run our summer program, so my hats off to you. oldbones, I believe it was you that posted about not airing dirty laundry referencing the baseball budget. Great point! Well said and straight to the point. Happy Easter to all!!!
  12. You need to make sure you read who wrote what posts before blasting anybody. Limbaugh said not the first bad thing about Babe Ruth coaches. I am the one that mentioned Chaffin playing his "best nine or worst nine." That was not a dig at Chaffin, but at people that get on here and try and blast one of the best coaches in the state (Chaffin), always second guessing his lineup. I am not a high school coach. I run a summer team and do it for FREEEE!!!!! Not many other summer programs can claim this and we are proud to do it also, so my hats off to you for volunteering your time with your Babe Ruth team. Limbaugh's version of the lineup was done with the same purpose of my "best nine or worst nine." I am the one that also mentioned the things that go on behind the scenes. However, Cookeville's baseball budget had no reason to be posted on CoachT, just like your salary at work, or mine does not need to be posted on here. Just some friendly advice. You might want to make sure you have who posted what and exactly what it is, before just scanning key words or reading the Cliff Notes and coming on here accusing Limbaugh or anybody else of posting things they did not post.
  13. It all depends on if Coach Chaffin makes out the lineup with his best 9 or worst 9. /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" /> You agree?
  14. Not that my figure is any better, just not on the internet.
