    Sending our condolences to the Sieber family. Our families know one another through Fast-pitch SB. Robin & I played in high school and Dad & Bob were key founders of the Haskell Annual Men’s FP Tournament. Thinking of you all and I just know they are up there playing ball and having a great time.

    Bob Wellman
    One of the best friends I ever had. He brought fun and laughter when it was in short supply. “I either found a rope or lost a horse.” Damn he was/is good!
