Yesterday the Tigers beat the Miracle 7-6; this morning we lost to the Express in another game that featured some questionable umpiring. While it is frustrating, there comes a point when we just need to move on - no, the umpiring is not up to U.S. professional standards. As players, we need to accept it and play the game. Everyone (including myself) has been disappointed with a call this season at some point or another. How we react affects the rest of the game in a negative manner, more often than not. Myself and everyone else needs to just accept what we have and finish the season having fun and playing the game - concerning ourselves with things we can control. Arguing a call has not once changed the umpire's mind, so let's get past it.


Weekend coming up, Shabbat dinner tonight with friends and a nice day off tomorrow to maybe catch a movie or some beach time.

Thanks for keeping your blog current. I am a big baseball fan and a big Israel fan . . . ah, maybe not in that order. :) I have been to Israel a few times and love hearing of your exploits, as well as your take on the games.

Just want you to know you are read faithfully. Take care and God bless.

Hey Mike, I am a big fan of your blog and have been reading it consistently for the last several weeks. I have been going to the IBL website and checking out news and info there, and then go to your site by clicking on the The Players -> Blogs link. However, I noticed that you're no longer linked to that page - what's up with that? Luckily, I was still able to find your blog by doing a simple google search. Hope all is well - take care.
