Larry,
I really think you have an “upgraded” website for the League. I’m also glad to see that some of the “old-timers” are still playing. My congrats to you, your fellow officers and players. I’m hoping to stop by and see a game or two this season.
Go HDL…Go Cardinals…Go Tigers

I have become a fan of the entire 9 inning games, not just the time limit. I realize umpires $ plays a factor but myself and enough other players I believe would be willing to increase fees to try to make that happen. When double headers are in line for Sunday mornings maybe a little shorter compromise can be met.

The only time we make an exception for players under 30 is when we have a shortage of players. Currently the HDL is healthy and has lots of adult players who want to play baseball. There are other baseball leagues in Memphis area that we would help anyone under 30 find a team they can play for. Come out to Tobey this Sunday and we can discuss.

I think the HDL should consider a innings count per game for pitchers. Maybe max of 5 innings per game. Seems like last year may have hurt some of our better pitchers in the league. Maybe even 3 innings max for 1st half of season. Would really suck to have our best pitchers unavailable for the post season. May be just bad luck this year? Just something I’ve noticed this year and we need to protect our leagues arms.

Hello Gents,
I my surprise state Friday night, which not many things do surprise me, but I was completely, I may have failed to publicly thank the HDL Hall of Fame committee on selecting me to enter the HDL Hall of Fame.
I want to say thank you and I am very humbled and proud that you think enough of me to put me in. I think there are a lot more people more deserving than me but I want to assure you I will always try to be the best ambassador of the HDL I can be.
Thank you and God Bless.
Jockomo

Great job on opening weekend !!!
