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”!

Discussion: TOC 55 division

Neck that rule only applies to teams west of the Mississippi; North Carolina is east of the Mississippi last time I checked? Do those 2 players deserve to get Rings? Especially if the winner has already been decided?

Discussion: TOC 55 division

Allan55 & Hitnrun5,
Is that really true about Hollis & the Fangrabbers already being winners in their respective divisions, therefore receiving Rings for just being there? If that's the case, I would like to receive my ring since I played & also HIT the WALKOFF home RUN that qualified the Fangabbers to be able to attend this year’s TOC!!
George Robinson & Jimmy Ross was also a part of this team and aren’t able to attend the TOC, they too should get their Ring! TOC rings should be for Roster Players only!

Johnny Hose feels, if you can’t attend the TOC you don’t deserve or will get a Ring, but he’s allowing 2 ball players that live in North Carolina to play in the TOC with the Fan Grabbers (because they can afford to go) thus giving them Rings just for their participation… That’s BS!!
I have told A&& HOSE just that!
(SSUSA how is this so?) When did North Carolina & AZ become touching States?
Am I pissed??? YEAP….Play bye the rules, everyone else has too! No Exceptions!

Discussion: TOC 55 division

KBL,

I hear you LOUD & CLEAR...lol
My point was that this is not a vacation and I'm glad that SSUSA has all the events scheduled for the teams that do take out the time to travel & play in the TOC....but that doesn't leave them off the hook for the # of teams playing in any given division...I just think it should be schedule, so that ALL or MOST of the teams that qualify for the TOC should have an opportunity to play in the TOC & because it's held in February or the off season, to me it's just a waste of time & money traveling 6000 miles (I’m in California) to play 3 teams none of which is in our division over 3 days.....just my 2 cents!

Good luck to my old 55 Fangrabber team in next month's TOC...You guys should bring home the rings, but a 3 day tourney with only 4 teams is a little over kill don't you think SSUSA?
Have fun guys & go travel safe!

Discussion: loosing toenails

I have had the same issues, what I did was, make sure before each tourney, I can get a Peticure most men won't do that, cause they think it only for women or gay guys! (watch it Fellas)!!! ...But a good foot rub does wonders for the body & mind! Make sure your nails are cut below the toe & buy your shoe size a 1/2 size bigger & wear two pair of socks when palying to help support those nails....You can also buy that nail fungus stuff in the drug store that will make your nails turn back white & strong...... Good luck I kknow its painful!

Discussion: Tournment Pitcher from NY looking to join a team

Cerce, it's really obvious to me you’re playing in the LOWER Divisions, Most Major & Major+ Senior teams, have hitters though out the line-up. Hitters with Power, Bat Control and most important patients to adjust to what you call an underhand pitch!!(I’m still laughing), when you get ur schedule out for your season this 2013 PLEASE POST it?
I’m sure a lot guys reading this thread would LOVE to face you…..Myself included, I just hope you’re all PADDED up when we do…I’m still laughing!!

Now that I think about it, he must have done this to get a raise out of us Old men…If he’s really serious, he’s not very smart and EVERYONE THAT I KNOW will go middle….
Every player on the field can talk trash EXCEPT the Pitcher… Unless he doesn’t care for his own safety…....I’m still laughing!!!

Discussion: Safely increasing your Testosterone Levels

Guys are you really serious? if you are, I’ve got some beachfront property for sale in Compton, why don’t you just donate to me instead of putting this CRAP in your body…Seems like everyday someone comes out with the latest greatest pill that will make us feel 30 again….Look we all are aging, Nature will take it’s course, weather you take this CRAP or not Were all going to die! Why enhance the process bye taking this stuff, you’re only fooling yourself……But if you really thinks it works for you, then so be it..Your belief is your reality!!!! But when they find tumors, Blood clogs & other stuff clogged up in your body, don’t ask yourself, HOW DID I GET THAT! Because I think you would already have that answer!!!! The best thing for the body is WATER WATER WATER, flushing & sweating & exercise. Try it, your dick might even stay hard!
Sorry for the outburst, but I've had too many people in my life die from prolonged use of Crap like this & not knowing the long terms effect!

Discussion: Cure for AAA after 3rd HR!

The extra fielder sounds like a good Idea! BUTTTT My question would be how does this protect the pitcher? I always thought when hitting the ball up the middle, the ball will reach the pitcher before it gets to the infielders, therefore making the pitcher a defensive player as it should be…..When guys play 5 man infield, there are still holes to hit the ball though, be it up the middle or slightly to the left or right of the pitcher or opposite side of the 5th infielder……I have never notice guys going up the middle just because the HR’s are gone, if anything they cut down on their swing, as to not hit the ball out the park for a DBO.. You guys give hitters too much credit for hitting the middle, its not as easy as all make it sound, guys at the AA & AAA level on a consistence bases just don’t have good enough bat control!

Discussion: Number 2 hitter

I actually think the # 2 hitter belongs to your most productive GUY, be it average, power, or bat control, he should be able to do all these things very well and consistence. He should be able to hit behind the runners, hit the gaps, and Yes J-dub hit the home run…A consistence 700+ hitter at ALL TIMES…..jmo
