Discussion: Yellow Combat MM Gear vs Blue MM Gear

Double , Michigan & Goater I think you guys may be the only guys who likes this bat.....When the blue 1st came out there was conversation about Yellow verse the blue & the vote wasn't even close in regards to performance.(YELLOW WINS HANDS DOWN)..I'm glad you guys found a good one!!!

Swing & I have been greaty disappointed in the Blue MM and all I swing is Combats, so I'm a big Fan of Combats! I have one of each, Gray De BomB, White & Black Centerian, Red dirty, & the last Yellow MM They ALL out preformed the Blue MM.....I guess from Combat's standpoint, they can have 1 Boo Boo out of the group.....lol

Corky,
How many years has this conversation been taking place? Has anything changed? Beside the HR rule being a walk! I understand you’re an employee of SSUSA & have to take their side & I’m sure there are plenty of guys on the AA & AAA level that know how to play the game……This was about the Major + division!! However my point being that the more talented players play in the Majors & Major + divisions & their concerns for the game seems to fall on deaf ears when it comes to their needs or wants……We all understand this is a business for you & yours & that the revenue is generated from the lowers divisions…….Therefore, I stand by my statement!! Sorry if you or anyone else was offended or perceived I was generalizing....

Discussion: Championship Sunday

Hey Dave,
Thank you so much for your answers……”My thinking on this, wasn’t from a better playing field site” I was looking at it from an expense side, as well bring all the Champions to one site for the Championship Sunday Celebration!
I think it’s worth a try!….I also think more teams would rather play more games on Saturday and or go home Saturday Night (if they must be eliminated’)verses Sunday Morning & then going back to the Hotel to check-out, etc etc… Okay let’s take Reno Sparks 5 fields, 50,’s 55’s & 60’s all playing this weekend. You could have moved all Sunday games there, (leagues games on Saturday’s should not IMO be agreed too in the contract for theses SSUSA out of town events) thus allowing longer play on Saturdays! You still bring back the top 3 teams in each division on Sunday & all winners can enjoy their day together & still make their travel commitments! Win Win….lol
Swing, see you at Cal cup!

Discussion: Championship Sunday

Is there’s a tournament format where ALL teams that make it to Sunday would be able to play their finishing games at the most desirable fields for that tourney?
I know like the Vegas worlds, there would be too many teams to do this… But Everyone likes playing at Field of Dreams would it be possible to have most divisions finish there on Sunday?…..IMO Reno would be a great tourney to try this Out! All Sunday teams for all divisions, could play their Championships games at Sparks, Wouldn’nt that save SSUSA on field expenses + other expenses?
everyone will all be at one park on championship Sunday

Hey Dan,

It’s my understanding from Steve that he’s going to keep his promise & make everyone whole that was still owed a GSC bat…Is this still the case & if so, when should we expect a delivery? (for those that won’t be in Reno)

Discussion: How can SSUSA possibly reclassify an established Major+ team

Dave,
Since you mention me, I thought I would respond….IMO the Fan gabbers are playing where they belong…From a SSUSA rule the Fan Gabbers should be playing major +
Or play 3 tournaments & request demotion…That’s the way I understand the rule to read! If I’m wrong please, correct me…..Yes at one time or another during the year all those folks played one tournament or the other….However that still leave Dave 1st base, Willie 2nd base, Cory LC, Kevin RC, Mark P, Jimmy LF & yourself catcher.
That still leaves 7 players that were on last year’s team.
Rules say you can only have 3 or play 3 tourneys and get reevaluated!
This did not happen in this case. Hence the reason folks are bitching!

Congratulations Steve,
I know the Senior Softball world put you though hell for all the things Mr.Gatey promised and never came though on……Looks like you have accomplished what you said you were going to do with this bat & it’s company…..I hope the nay Sayers will apologize for all the bashing, (I’m sure they will bye purchasing 1 of your Bats)…lol
From the sound of things, the Bat is a keeper…I’ll let you know my opinion, when I receive mine!

Discussion: The Rock balls

Webbie,
Your words are so true…As a thrower I HATE catching & throwing the Rocks…There are NO threads to grip…..I guess we can’s have it both ways…Since Slow pitch softball is a hitter’s game , I think everyone gets a win win with the ROCK!

Discussion: How can SSUSA possibly reclassify an established Major+ team

Dave & fitter,
My bad I got my info 2 second hand! I think most believe from a competitive standpoint the Fan grabbers are where they belong in 55 Majors…..We are only questioning SSUSA’s rule on how it was done given the fact that you still have 7 players from last year’s team! So, if 3 of you left and went to another 55 major team would make that team now major +?

Discussion: How can SSUSA possibly reclassify an established Major+ team

The game was forfeited well into the 3rd or 4th innings, with the Fan Grabbers up big….The Coach then protested a player’s status with the team and then from what I was told the coach spit on the umpire causing a forfeit!!! IMO the UMP did the correct thing!
So now that the fan gabbers have been moved down to majors, then proceed to win their 1st tourney, are they now rerated back to Major +?

Discussion: How can SSUSA possibly reclassify an established Major+ team

I played last year with the Fangrabbers, we played 55 Major + since they have been reclassified, does that now mean that my Status is now 55Majors or are the guys that left still rated Major +?.
It’s also my understanding that if you play Majors and add 3 Majors + players, you are then promoted to the higher division……….
So the Fangrabbers lose 5 out their 12 players from last year leaving 7 Major + players, then add a few new guys & get moved down to Majors after winning the TOC & finishing 3rd in the world…WOW SSUSA, you make a rule and can’t stick bye it!!!…I can see why folks are bitching, there seems to be NO clear-cut system you can follow, when it comes to ratings…..But there is a Rule on promoting & demoting teams, its just not always applied equally…….

Discussion: Swing analysis

Mike & Kennard,
While thinking at the plate, for most will mess up their swing, I think pitch selection has more to do with the swing than anything else…Most line drive hitters think more at the plate, while most powers hitters, as the 2 of you are! Lol... See a pitch and swing for the fences.I think, most line drive hitters try to go with the pitch & turn over the wrist on contact as to turning the wrist over in follow though like power hitters or free swingers! But as the saying goes “Some guys can hit & Some guys know how to hit”!
