I don't like to post messages on this website,but I feel that I must.We were told by BASA staff members and officials that rules were different for us.We are also looking forward to NAP,because we love to play there.(PERIOD) We don't enter Tournaments to fight we want to play. Mr.Drake and Mr.Ivy know us and they know we are going to voice our opinions, but it has never become physical.(NEVER WILL)We know that there are people out there that dislike ESP and those that like us.We just flat out love to play SOFTBALL.To our people,see you in NAP/DERRTY/ATLANTA.
Eastside you have a good team, believe that, alot of talent. Winning the world you have to have talent but in the end you will need a good attitude as well. Thats why you wont win one because your attitude sucks!!! How your players (team repp) going to get on here and threaten the ceo of the basa. Do you really think your going to get any close calls that you will need to win the world now? The answer is hell no, umps wont give you anything close now.. you need to check yourselves then you can think about winning a world, until then you never will. REAL TALK!!!!!!
Ok, the only attitude a team needs on the field is to GIVE 110%,BELIEVE IN YOURSELF,AND YOUR TEAMMATES,AND TO NEVER GIVE UP.I personally want to know,why our teams future WORLD SERIES plans are on your mind? We as a team have never asked any official or staff for anthing close or not.A person can say anything,whether they mean it or not.We have never physically hurt anyone in BASA.We feel that we have a good thing going and asked just to be left alone.
What happens if some knuckle head decides to act on these threats? Let the big man handle it if it's that bad.
PTI REPORTER,if u didn't know,it takes attitude sometimes to win! Plus umps call it the best as they see it,but in some games they get more intense and some umps question themselves in those intensed games! Seems to me,you are trying to gas the umps up? We(esp)dont what any breaks,just treat us the same!!!!!!!!!
SPELL CORRECTION...'DONT WANT ANY BREAKS'
TELL'EM YEAST (ESP 4 LIFE)
To PTI,no one got on here and threatened anyone.We were just clearing up what was said to Drake this past weekend.Please no what you are talking about before commenting.Things did get a little heated in tha Lou but if you knew everything that happened up there,I'll bet you'd understand.So if you go to Nap, holla at me and I'll tell you the whole scenario.I'll apologize on behalf of my ESP fam if we offended anyone but holla at me and I'll tell you why.It's hard to feel like one big Fam when u r getting treated like tha other side.
This is something i observerd in cincy. st louis and other cities the last couple of years. the behavior of some of your players is outragious you guys need to come them down.Other teams get bad breaks too, and i am just an observer.but i thought i heard you say some bad things about Mr Drake
To concerned,I understand what you are saying but I personally apologized for anyone that was offended but please know that some actions are justified.If you could here some of the responses that Drake gives to us then you could understand.Please feel safe to bring your fam to the park because that's what it's all about but words never hurt anyone.People are acting as if ESP is the only team that has had confrontations on the circuit.We just speak on the wrong doings.So feel free to bring your fam because ESP will always bring our kids/women to the park.
Eastside Players Rep.
Thanks for showing big class and speaking up.
I don't go to many tournaments like Hercle
and Mr. Drake as some of you call him. But Drake
is the first one to tell me that (ESP) may get
upset and show it but they do have a point.
Evertime there is a problem I allways tell you guys
just wait a minute and let me try to fix right
for everybody. And I have seen some of the same guys that would blow up stop and gave us time to get it right. Not just right for you but right for the hole tournament.
We can't allways be in every city that a tournament is ran, but we can try to make sure that they are ran
correct. I check with the *UIC ** from that tournament and he did make a mistake on the
ejection rule. I also talk to the head of BASA
Umpire In Charge about the problem. When someone
makes mistake than we all pay for it, but if they did wrong there that dosen't mean we will do it wrong here. We will apply the rules correct. And talk to that person so that it hopefully will not happen
Yes we all like to stand up for each other but it don't mean much if you are putting someone else down.
