Ô` Returning to the misconception of the reason
… for suspending Jenny Lynn, you will note a section in the second to last paragraph of the above email that has been capitalized for purposes of this discussion. Jenny Lynn’s warnings regarding unsportsmanlike conduct began this season even before Birdie Baseball lost our own Commissioner Tim. There was an incident in which she described climbing the stands and charging birdie[s] with the intent to do bodily harm. Commissioner Tim phoned Jenny Lynn’s dad at the time and let it be known in no uncertain terms that this was totally unacceptable and not to be repeated. I know because Tim phoned me to tell me of the incident, his conversation with Jenny Lynn’s dad, and Jenny’s dad’s promise that it would not happen again.

Then on July 4, following the Rainforest Raiders’ loss, Jenny Lynn described an actual assault on the opposing team captain in a blog that was deleted almost before anyone ever knew it had been posted. At that time, I both emailed Jenny Lynn’s dad and spoke with him on the phone and was given another promise that an incident like this would not occur again.

It is neither funny, nor silly, nor sweet to threaten bodily injury to another bird, even in a virtual environment. There are humans behind these birds and it is not only unsportsmanlike, but inconsiderate.

Granted, while what we [the Umpiring Team] are considering her third offense is not of a physical nature, it is highly offensive to Birdie Baseball nonetheless, especially to those of us who dedicate exceeding amounts of time and energy to operate this League for your enjoyment, and to birdies on those teams who have also experienced a number of consecutive losses, and remained true to the spirit of Birdie Baseball without accusation. To quote one Umpire, “As you know, the spirit of BC baseball is all about fun. When you have parronts that take things too serious, show bad sportsmanship and say that umpires are cheating- it is like a slap in the face. The amount of time put in by umpires, approximately 150 games over 6 months, shows an incredible dedication to BC Baseball.”

Mrs. Tim has weighed in on this situation and has said that “Timothy would never let something like this go on.” I invite you to look at the Motto posted on The Office of the Birdie Baseball Commissioner’s Page which is a quote that Mrs. Tim gave me saying that if she heard her husband say it once, she heard him say it a thousand times.
