Discussion: BP/practice

Practice/BP can never be underrated.
Game swings are important, too.
Changing every 5 pitches is good to keep
from getting a "BP Head" which is not the same as a game swinging "head".
Good question, Robert.

Robert.
As ignorant as you can be with your statements about God
and people who believe in God
to disrrespecting over 2000 terrific men and women
of NCSSA
you are an identifiable member of our community
and you belong with us, one way or another.
Mountebank outsiders who have no respect for anyone
including themselves, don't.

Discussion: I just hit a 677 foot HR

You don't get it, Gary.
Some site administrators don't, either.
We're a community, the senior softball community
and we know each other and who each other are
over 15 years now and longer.
We've seen and played with/against each other
for years and still at it.
We care about one another, defend one another and
recognize and support each other all we can.
That's why so many of us use our names on the site.
Because we're accountable to and proud of ourselves
one to the other.
And we don't suffer outsiders and fools with bad intentions
very well at all.
Get a clue, Lou.

You're a no one who's been allowed
to defecate at will in our midst by SSUSA
and one can only ask why.

Podunk, Robert.
There you go again.
Disrespecting over 2000 terrific men and women
of NorCal NCSSA.
Classless, characterless and ignorant.
And you did it to yourself.

Robert.
You're being pejorative.
Look it up and stop.
There you go calling us killers again
even though you went 1200 miles
to kill people yourself.
You burying yourself by your own ignorance
over and over again.

You're an embarrassment to SSUSA

Discussion: 52 Core Ball

Live pitching is absolutely the key
as 4x4 stated for a variety of reasons
not least of which is the advent
of the knuckleball as the pitch de jour
up and coming in senior softball.
When there's a competing wind the knuckleball
will cause anyone trying to under cut it
all the time to either miss it completely
or pop it up weakly most of the time.
Natural eye hand coordination and reflexes
when surprised in a fraction of a second
right before striking a ball
would bring the bat to the center of the ball
to maximize the chance to hit it well or at all.
And hitting that 52 x 275 ball will punish you
rather than reward you for your efforts.
A good knuckle ball pitcher with an opposing
wind might throw a no hitter in a softball game
it would be that hard to hit it that 52 x 275
ball well.

And safer can be had in many other ways
as Donnie C points out by increasing
the arc limits
and widening and deepening the rubber,
1 and 1 count, screens and other ways too.
Why must it always come at the expense
of something that is fundamentally important
to our game and that is "pace" and "feel"
of hitting a ball hard and well.

Donnie.
You might say that Robert and I have a debate
about points of concern and interest
and we can get carried away
but Gary C was not concerned about any of it.
He lived to antagonize and disparage.
That was his stated mantra and goal
and how he got as far as he did
with little to no redeeming value
is a matter of some interest.

No one wants you to get killed Robert
driving home from BP but we don't put a governor
on your engine to make sure you don't go to fast
and hurt yourself.
I mean this respectfully and thoughtfully.
You have good intentions about safety but
men need to be men and assumed risk is fundamental
to living well and playing a satisfying game
of softball.

Saying and doing Mark are two different
verbs for very good reasons.
They refer to two completely different actions.
And when you use careful language like
"don't foresee" you're making sure
just in case it goes differently you're
covered because one could say they weren't able to see that well or very clearly at all.

There's no bad guys.
Just a ton of conflicting interests
that need name tags so we can keep track
of who's who and who wants/needs what
and why
so important things don't get lost
or stolen.

Discussion: Earth Quake

Hey Harry.
I been talking how tough we are out here in California.
Maybe now they'll listen :)

We get them every day.
They're after shocks of bigger ones that have
already happened and we do get'em all the time.

The big one we had in 89 at the World Series.
lasted 15 seconds.
That's a honker and very scary.
It was said,
the first five seconds folks said
hey that's an earth quake.
The next five seconds they said
Wow. It's a big earthquake.
The next 5 seconds everyone started praying
and asking for it to stop.
Very deep rooted traumatic stuff.
Lot's of people left SF in the next
6 to 12 months.

Easy with all that applause!
John.
What ball were you hitting with your 44 oz
thumper?
Do you remember?
I would bet 2 universes it wasn't a 44x375 ball
or a 52 core 275 ball.
C'mon, John.
It's the combo that's critical.
We have always wanted/expected to play
with a lively bat/ball combo
no matter if it's the bat or the ball
or both that gives us the drive.

There can be no reasonable comparison between the results from an elective online survey
that is not represented by any true cross section of the population
and the much more representative one done by SPA.
My understanding is that most won't play and when they do
they will not enjoy what they are playing enough and continue to drop out.

Discussion: What do you think?

Hey Jeff.
That's not what I'm saying.
There's NO DOUBT in my mind given all my research and experience
and awareness of what is taking place in and around our sport
that the great majority of players, as per the SPA survey
which many of us participated in,
favor not going less than the equipment level
we have today in senior ball.
