It is a sad day in Birdie Baseball when a player calls into question the integrity of the Officiating Staff of the sport. However [not so thinly] veiled the accusation is, it has been implied that the results of the Amazon Rainforest Raiders’ games have not been arrived at fairly, and that it is suspected to be because the player is not held in the highest esteem by the Umpiring Team.
I dare say this is offensive to each and every Umpire given that each has played games for every team in the League this season. Since there is nothing truly at stake in Birdie Baseball, and it is played strictly to provide an opportunity for fun and interaction between birds, these statements are inappropriate and uncalled-for.
Chuck, Jenny Lynn, Captain and Manager of the Amazon Rainforest Raiders, in her comments following the game between your team and Da Pois ‘N’ Dem this Saturday past, it is clear that you feel you have been wronged in the way the Umpires have “rolled the dice” for your team. I can assure you, you have not.
In order to appease your fears, allow me to briefly explain how it is that a game of Birdie Baseball is played….
[ I HAVE TAKEN THE LIBERTY OF NOT USING THE SPACE FOR THIS PART OF THE EMAIL AS IT IS A DUPLICATION OF THE EXPLANATION OF HOW A GAME OF BIRDIE BASEBALL IS PLAYED WHICH IS POSTED IN THE FIRST BLOG ON THIS PAGE.ek ]
Therefore, for Jenny Lynn’s unbecoming and unsportsmanlike comments accusing your very own Officials of cheating you or your team out of winning baseballs games for any reason, THIS IS YOUR THIRD OFFENSE AGAINST BIRDIE BASEBALL THIS SEASON. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED ON EACH OF THE OTHER TWO OCCASIONS. THE FIRST BY COMMISSIONER TIM, AND THE SECOND BY ME. * This time there will be a consequence. Jenny Lynn will be required to sit out the next three Rainforest Raiders games. I can see no other way to put an end to this distasteful attitude. And end it must.
This disciplinary action has been arrived at by a consensus of the Umpiring Team.
Acting Birdie Baseball Commissioner
