8 July, 2010

Fourteen days till Pizza and Pasta with Craig!!!!! Calendars are in and looking good. Dick Hahn WILL NOT attend this years Championships! We will all be a little less happy regarding this... he would only say that Tom knew why and he did have an excuse!

Craig will be taking the League to the People this coming week, as he visits the Janesville Optimists and spreads our message of sharing and fun!.

I'm going back out to the complex now…

In just 3 short weeks Kids Camp will be under way.....Nice! Sandy will be hustling the chillen in their chores, tents will begin to sprout here at World Headquarters, the pool will be filling...yes we're close. If I close my eyes I can actually see family and friends sharing the best week of the year!

Today, B., Trent, and Craig finished the mulching and we graded the infields with new dirt. It's just like the old's just new. The garbage…

Portugal 7...North Korea 0....Which brings up some very interesting news on our inroads into Europe. I'm sure you all remember ex-patriot and former commissioner Cat....well he has been running our European Headquarters without authorization for a couple of years now. There had been some attempts to get him back under our aegis but to no avail. Not to worry, folks! Our own little Secretary of State, Michelle Grifka is enroute to visit with Commissioner Cat (he…

All you guys out there....Happy Father's Day!!!!

Five weeks and counting here at headquarters. I hope you guys are seeing the progress through the pictures we have posted. Carol in the corn pictures are about 7 days apart. I like the one that shows the new infield grass on Chance Field, and the flowers that are past blooming by the time you get here.

Craig is coming up with a new 'special' deal on one all day token....It will include…

Plus the Calendar is at the publisher even as I write this missive to you! Eddie has given the final approval and we're down to proofing the copy....that's publishing-speak for checking our work!

We've have had alot of rain and believe me the crops are growing. You can check the progress in our photo album....I hope to…

Rain day.....slow and steady a good a little garage work done and about 10 flags up....I'll be on it tomorrow as soon as I get home from the club. Craig says I need to keep my other job because the League is going through some tough financial times what with the whole European thing. (I'm not sure what the 'whole European thing' is but I trust Craig!)

Hope to get some more pictures up tomorrow. I don't know how to do them, so I'll…

A little more painting today....Carol has this thing for "Tree Frog Green" chairs and a blue table in the pavillion area. I hope to get more wood chips spread as Commisioner Craig will be at the compound tomorrow to check on progress...He's a stickler for telling me what I have to do to make things 'nicey nice' as he puts it.

The Beloit Visitors Bureau has contacted us and we're trying to get a deal on hotel rooms, so let us know here where you…

Commissioner's Corner

Today I got what I hope to be the final edits done on the calendar. (I wait for Eddies approval.....I'm always waiting for someone's approval!) Also Craig and I are fingering out this photo look for more new pics on the web site. (He's a little slow on this computer stuff, but I am being patient and bringing him along slowly.)

Carol's got some new flowers working and the pond is coming around, but there was some BIG bird that came through the other night and…

Craig and Tom in the Commissioners' Corner

2 June, 2010


Well we're about 50 days away from the 2010 World Championships, and we here at headquarters figure we'd give you all a little update on the preparations.

Today Trennie and I busted our tails raking and filling holes. We also got a start on some cleaning and washing of the bleachers, and benches. Craig watched and said we did a real good job. After about 3 hours in the blistering sun we each got 6 oz. of water! AND we have…

Opening Day

4 April, 2010

Clinton, WI

For the first time in the history of the SLA, the opening day game was forfeited by the Chicago Stoops! Reports say that Mary, aka 'Chicago Red' is still negotiating a new contract and would not play under the old agreement. The Detroit Risers in their creamy home whites with the old English D, not wanting to let the fans down, called the Tom Emanski Stoopball Trainees franchise and asked them to fill in for the Stoops. Most graciously they accepted, and… Continue

OK Stoopers, time to pitch in and give our dear friend Lifschutz a hand...

This is an email I received (and replied to) regarding promotion of the New York Street Games DVD release... Please help if you can... and quickly!…

wish I could get this site to email me when there is new activity.

Commissioner's Corner

25 January 2010


Even as we speak, we are in the conference room working on the 2011 Stoopball calendar. Here comes the appeal:

If you each send to me a check for $1000 payable to cash, I can handle this myself. For those of you who don't have as much money (such as your new commissioner, Craig) I ask that you send us PHOTOS FROM STOOPBALL or any other interesting data. (Steve this do not mean any interesting stories from your childhood.) Also, please send… Continue

Commissioner Craig’s Corner

Dateline: Clinton, WI

27 November, 2009


The SLA Winter Meetings for 2009 went off without a hitch this evening. I’m happy to report that the world is still spinning despite the absence of the Detroit, Dearborn, Boston, D.C., Brighton and Portugal delegates. (Voting was sure a lot easier!) (It really is good to be the Peoples Commissioner!)

So in brief, here is a recap. Westby, WI made a very attractive bid to host the 2010 SLA World Championships at Ella… Continue

21 November, 2009



Yeah, it’s been way too long! I’m sorry I haven’t been more ‘timely’ in keeping up with the business of the SLA.....but....well with my medical issues and all......

Here, the 2009 Champs...Bingo Bango!!!!(I still think they should have signed Bongo to a contract, but… Continue
