  14. ron roof Jun 19th 2007

    “Mr.Pres.”  &  “Isch Field” sound great!

  15. Parent of Player Jun 20th 2007

    The website is great. I like that there is another way of getting a hold of the people in charge if there’s no phone number available. On behalf of all the parents…Thanks.

  16. Generic Assistant Coach Jun 29th 2007

    I want to take this time to thank all the parents and fans who show support for all the teams from t-ball on up. We are here for the kids and sportsmanship should be #1, so remember it starts with us, the adults.

    One eco friendly reminder. Please have all members of your team(s) pick up the bottles, garbage,etc. We want to keep the park as nice as possible.

    As the playoffs approach remember to keep the teams focused but winning is not everything, enjoying yourself and teaching our youth to respect the game, the opponent and the UMP are very important.

    I hope everyone has a safe 4th of July. I’m out!!!

  17. wilbur fulton Jul 5th 2007

    With the season running so far into July, it’s getting difficult to field a full team anymore. How about next year, we use Cazenovia Park also ? With the proper pemits we should have no problem and wrap up the season much earlier.

  18. i like the website but it needs to update the standings faster. also junior league needs better umps

  19. Shannon Petrucci Jul 12th 2007

    I just want to thank all the board members for their hard work this year. I would like to encourage more parents to join the board or get involved in South Buffalo Baseball in some other way. We are all very busy in our everyday lives but your children will look up to you as someone who cares about your community by getting involved and keeping this league going well into the future. It is very rewarding knowing that because of our involvement , 500+ children were able to play ball this summer.

  20. i love the website. GO JERRY ISCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. wilbur fulton Jul 25th 2007

    Once again, I want to thank all the board and committee people for all your time and efforts. It was a very good season thanks to all of you . A great game was played for the Senior Boys I championship. Congratulations to our players, and congratulations to Tim Burke’s and Joe Danahy’s boys for their great effort in a game that could have gone either way. I think the parents in attendance certainly got their moneys worth at this game !

  22. dave brady Jul 26th 2007

    These should be the rules next year for ejections!! Print them up and put them in the booklet!

    “You’re Gone!”

    Here are some of the things players and coaches can do that will almost guarantee an ejection:

    1. THROW ITEMS. Tossing a bat or helmet violently in obvious disagreement with an umpire’s decision should almost always result in an automatic ejection.

    2. SWEARING. The lower the level of baseball, the less tolerant you should be about language.

    3. ARGUE BALLS & STRIKES. If it’s loud or obvious enough, it’s automatic.

    4. THREATEN. “I’ll get you later” or similar threats should not be tolerated.

    5. CONTACT. Bumping or pushing an umpire, even slightly, should result in an immediate ejection.

    6. PERSONAL. Generally, at higher levels, a coach can disagree with your call and say it was “horse#&*!”, but if he calls YOU “horse#&*!” he’s gone.

    7. INTEGRITY. Any time a or coach insinuates you’re cheating, it’s showers for him.

    8. QUALIFICATIONS. Implying you’re nor qualified, during an argument, means the coach/player is done for the day.

    9. OFF TOPIC. Let the coach argue about the call that just occurred, but if he tries to go back to another argument earlier on, stop him right there.

    10. RULE BOOK. As soon as a coach crosses the foul line with a rule book in hand, intent to show you up, eject him.

    11. DRAWING LINE. Upset with your strike call, the batter draws a line in the dirt where he thought the pitch was. You eject him.

    12. WON’T LEAVE. Once you’ve told a coach/player the discussion is done and he still won’t leave, he’s looking for an ejection.

    13. MOTHER. A catch-all guideline. Anytime a player says or does something to you you wouldn’t want your mother to see or hear, consider ejecting the offender.

    Hey Blue!

    Umps have a hard job, I really must say.
    They Put up with a lot of abuse every single day.
    There are coaches who yell and players who curse.
    Have you ever heard this verse?
    “Coach, I’m warning you, you better not shout,
    or I just might have to kick you right out!”
    Then there are calls that could go either way,
    And both of the coaches had a lot say.
    “Oh come on Blue, what are you blind?
    To say she was safe you must have lost you mind!”
    “Umpire, How can you call that an out?
    You better rethink before I start to shout!”
    They put up with back talk from coaches and fans.
    Esspecially annoying ones coming from the stands.
    If the ump gets to a play a second too late,
    all the regular phrases are about a bad call which was made.
    “Hey Ump, would you like to borrow my glasses?”
    “Didn’t they teach you anything during umpire classes?”
    They get spit in their face and dirt on their shoes,
    all because of a call that one team didn’t like.
    So the next time an umpire makes a slightly unfair call.
    Think about what they go through, would You go through it all?

    Hey, you need to put the pictures up of the Senior Boys II playoff champs c’mon!!!!!

  27. Mike Schneider Aug 29th 2007

    Hey Mr. Heywood!! i see the site is coming along!! well all i care for that i see there is a spot for the MAIN umpire… lol well u have my email address keep me updated man!!

  28. jerry isch Sep 1st 2007

    I have been running into parents here and there, the talks were nice , some were apologetic. Just wish to remind parents that this is not the big leagues. Board members , coaches, umpires and others who help out, keep this league going. Without it our kids end up with idle time on there hands which lead to other things. At least thats the way I see it. Should there be changes? Yes. Are there changes being made? They are being discussed, and some maybe implemented. So relax and enjoy watching your children playing baseball. See you next summer!!!

  29. jerry isch Sep 1st 2007

    brandon z. ( Mr. Focused)

    I,m offering 2 ice creams and a nacho, if you sign a contract….

    See you next summer!!!!

  30. Mike get a life!

  31. dave brady Sep 10th 2007

    It’s come down to bribery to get kids to play for you jerry. I guess you can’t get people to by your book so you buy them out.Keep plugging away at that best seller, somebody may be dumb enough to buy it.

  32. Ricky Rick Sep 26th 2007

    Boys, boys, behave. If the Prez is bribing players on this public website, can you imagine what he is doing behind the scenes. His son Zach wants to defect and Jerry knows it. Zach knows “who” to listen to.  Jerry remember, we only hurt the ones we love. Who loves ya baby!!!

    To Dave Brady: GO WARRIORS and Cale Yarborough!!!

  33. Anonymous Apr 1st 2008

    I would like to send this comment to the board and especially the President Isch. I am disappointed that after the young men took a leadership role and put together a team, they were denied participation in the league.. The kids just want to play some ball, and the president can’t even them a favor… ah man.. re elect !!!!!!

  34. As I enter my 16th season as coach, I would like to thank Mr. Jerry Isch for stepping up to the plate once again as Mr.President. Not too many people can handle the job as president except for Jerry! So far this 2009 season,it looks like we are going to have another succesfull season,because of the wonderful volunteers in coaching and the board members. Also welcome back Joe Bona!!!See you all in the spring….

  35. The season was great!!! Long live Isch!!!

  36. Mike Schneider Jan 16th 2009

    Well i will be returning back to Okell for my 5th year!! Looking forward to another great season as usually. Can’t wait to receive my umpire duty for the 3rd year!! Welcome all new board members! Great to have you along. See everyone in the Spring. **Scott if you need anything you know how to contact me, can send me an e-mail.*** See all soon. =)

  37. JERRY I Jan 23rd 2009

    In response to anonymous, from April of 2008 there is absolutely no favoritism (this includes family).
