I was just made aware of some posts made on Fakebook with misconceptions about the Slurricanes being forced out of Millennium Sunday Fall Ball.
So I will state the facts about what is going on with the team and where they may play in the Fall.
1. I had conversations last night with two members of the Slurricanes that said the team had discussed not playing in the Millennium Sunday Fall Softball League because they felt it would be better to play in another Fall league with teams of or near their new USA of PA state classification of a "D1" team. - I agreed.
2. I then made a call to Franny King (Distict 6 Deputy Commissioner) and the commissioner of the Bob Canfield Memorial Sunday Fall Softball League and asked if he needed another team and he said he would get back to me - which he did and if the Slurricanes wanted to join the league they would be accepted - making what already is the most competitive Sunday Fall league even better.
3. Now I'll jump over to Fakebook where I saw a post made by Dan Cubler (J.D. McGillicuddy's Drexel Hill) that said the following ...
Dan Cubler: That's the kind of guy Joe is.. you win states, his millennium league has 3 in top 7 and then he rewards you by removing you from his league.. weasel moves
Well Dan - as you can see from what I just wrote - you were wrong.
And by the way ... I never had more of a problem with a team whining and complaining about everything than I did with your team - whether it was about what date and time you wanted to play in the playoffs or what ASA classification you were - which I tried the best I could to get changed for your team.
How many championships did your team win when the following teams played in the Millennium Sunday Softball League "A" Division?
2. A&R Iron Works
3. Barnaby's Havertown
5. Dolan's Bar
4. Milmont Republican Club
The answer is zero!
So before you start shooting off your mouth get the facts right and at least make the impression you know what you're talking about.
One more thing ... the Millennium Sunday Fall Softball League has low league fees of only $600 - which have never gone up since the league started in 1998 and still gives out prize money to the winners and runner-ups of each division - which you probably weren't aware of because your team never won any of it.
