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

Discussion: More 1-1 Count Talk

This is very interesting, reading all the comments, we all sound like those A-Holes on Capitol Hill...lol
I think we should change all divisions to "1 Pitch" that way the games moves fast for SSUSA, the pitchers have a little advantage over the Hitters, and those that really know how to hit...Will.....IMHO

Discussion: Which Bat should I use?

Big Mike you'll have to purchase a USSSA or ASA bat for BP, they'll take longer to break in and are really more durable then any senior bat...

Discussion: Grading the Rule Changes

I agree with the changes to the AAA hr being an out after the max has been hit...However I would also like that rule placed in the upper divisions also. Although most Major + players can hit it out at will, it makes for a more balanced game when these big guys come to the plate, all hrs have been hit and they have NO BAT CONTROL in order to get a base hit....(I know I'll always get the argument if you hit a ball 300+Ft it shouldn't be a out)IMO if you play at the major & major + level you should know how to get a base hit with bat control..PERIOD! the dead ball out speeds up the game also...I played in a tourney where the open inning was " 1 PITCH" walk,hit or out! I really liked it, the open inning when really fast!

Discussion: Which Bat should I use?

Big Mike,
IMO the only thing you can do nowadays to perserve a bat is to break it in with about 30- 50 BP swings..Then put it ur bag until game time at bats only, no more BP......Just my 2 cents!!

Discussion: Performance enhancing

Jeff,
I think the line is drawn at the Illness. I’m speaking Softball!!
I’m just wondering why the guys that take that shit without any Illness or Injury but just for looking good & cut at 50+
They have little talent, so they need that edge (I guess) in order to compete, and that’s where this conversation started!

Taking Prescribed Steroids for Psoriasis is not something I know about.
I do believe that taking Roids will crew you up over the long haul &
I’m not a very big FAN of Doctors and their prognosis of the goings on in our bodies…I will die sooner then later if I have to take medication in order to live pain & dieses free!

Kennard No worries, I understand about you guys taking whatever it is that your Dr. states you need for the CONDITION THAT YOU HAVE....

But not for being able to compete on the 50+ Senior Slow Pitch Softball Major Plus Level!!!!

It funny to me that at this age some have EGO's so big or are just addicted to taking this CRAP is beyond my level of understanding!!! Guys drink your water, lift light weights, do Cardio on a regular bases and the most important thing we can do on a regular BASES is GET LAID!!!!!!

Discussion: Hard time getting ahold of Team 1 sports re: broken Ambush

Big Mike,
I'll have to agree with you on this one, My Ambush lasted about 600 swing, took 500 to break-in once It got hot it cracked...My Black & White Cent, have well over 1200 swings lasting a little longer!!
Alan's a good guy he'll take care of you one way or the other!

Discussion: Performance enhancing

Hey we all take some form of medical enhancements in order to play! I understand that! IBPROFEN, Wintercrest, braces, etc yea no issues from me......But shooting up, HGH and all the other PED’s I just can’t put my finger on why guys over 50 want to do that, just to play ball!!

Discussion: Performance enhancing

I was wondering how many of you guys over 50 are taking HGH or some other form of performance enhancing stuff?….The reason I’m asking is because while in PHX last week I saw some very remarkable play bye some guys 60+..Don’t get me wrong, I know some guys still and always have worked out…However when guys 60+ still have the muscle mass & definition of a 30 year old, I have to question what their doing to maintain their body structure! I was told bye several ball players that HGH is used a lot more in Senior Ball then is known! If that’s the case, what is it supposed to do for you? Just curious! I don’t expect to get confessions!

Discussion: The way softball was played back when:

Mike I agree, I do like the senior bats, however if we go back to the older bats and the Red or Blue dots Balls, I'll be cool with that.
Defense played a big part back then because the outfield could play the coed line on the little guys, knowing that they couldn't (for the most part) burn you. Now we have to play 290 on everyone!

Discussion: Mercy Rule,

I’m not trying to be a sore loser….Either way, I just think there should always be an open inning….Sport Plex played great, they hit the crap out the ball, not taking noting away from them!

Discussion: Mercy Rule,

Traits,
The ump had told us the mercy rule was in effect, base on us being 27 runs down & since he hadn’t called open inning prior to the inning starting. We were the home team.
Tattooball,
I understand what you say about the rules,but since there is a run limit per inning, until the open, I just think, that no matter what inning or what the score a open inning should be played!

Discussion: Mercy Rule,


WE played a game in Vegas where we were down 27 runs going into the 5th inning.
I know the mercy rule is 20 after 4 and 15 after 5. Coming to bat in the bottom of 5th the most runs we could score would be 9 which would still leave us 16 runs short so it would still be a mercy.
We decided not to bat, since we couldn’t catch up!
My question is shouldn’t all games be played with an open inning regardless of the SCORE? If we had scored our 9 or whatever runs in the bottom ˝ of the inning, shouldn’t the flip fop rule come into play and the open inning started? Thus giving us the chance to win the game if possible instead of being mercy?

Discussion: Cheyenne Park for Worlds

E4 you must be a sport reporter….You took one word from my sentence and made YOUR OWN STATEMENT…..You stated you filled belittled? Where did that come from in my statement? All I stated was here you have the best 55 & 60 players playing at the worst park in Vegas and that should never happen!!!!! I think you should check your thought process? I know what I meant, and from the looks of the thread, others understand also, except you!
@ Johnny Hose great job coaching us this season!!
@Swing see you Friday for that beer & bet!
@Webbie it was my pleasure meeting you finally after all the chatter on this board & Congrats to all the Winners & Losers

Discussion: Cheyenne Park for Worlds

E4 did you play at a crappy field/ park? If not, I suggest you keep your month closed!
I mention the 55’s & 60’s because that’s who had to play on those fields and risk injury, I didn’t mention anything about the other age groups or divisions or parks! Are you trying to say that the lower divisions usually play with these type of field / Park Conditions? Did you not read the part about SSUSA should NEVER EVER use parks like theses? That includes using them for the lower divisions! Hope you feel better now!
