Discussion: pitchers shin guards

in expensive motor cross type shin guards have single velcro strap,covers knee,easy on easy off. I also add a cut piece of fender liner to fit top of my foot and attach with zipties. I also attach piece to bottom of my glove to protect wrist. both have saved me several times.

Discussion: Throwing

currntly in rehab for 6 months.not rotor cuff but certain weak or damaged muscles. i was not able to throw overhand for last 2 years without extreme pain. operated on and bone spur removed 6 months ago, did not fix.
rehab used bands and light weights and got me where i could throw without pain but weakly.
i now do rehab on own.
i use bat warmer to warm arm before throwing our excercise and ice or winter crest after.
long throw every other day and bands other days, 1 day off.
i do 5 band exercises inludeing 1 called nolan ryan.also planks.i will hopefully be playing other positions when not pitching next week end.throws are getting stronger and stronger.

Discussion: Should you be able to go for hits between the second baseman and shortstop

i see some talking about line drives back at pitcher,i think most pitchers would agree we are not worried about the line drives, we know where they are going,it's the ones that hit in front of you around the rubbers that i worry about as you are not sure where there going, especialy if they hit rubber.
and yes i have bailed out when ball hits one of the pitching rubbers.

Discussion: Social Security benefits

if you are healthy and don,t need it wait till 70,you get about 8% increase a year.
make sure you apply for medicare before 65. your insurance rates go way up when you hit 65. a and b with supplemental and meds.
if your spouse draws social security the other can draw at spouces 1\2 rate with no penalty.
there are lots of things you can do but can be unreversable.
you can no longer pay back and start over.

Discussion: Safety Questions

i have been looking at rugby helments,maybe next year.i wear shin guards every now and then and then quit wearing them till i get hit and then regreat it.been lucky this year.
but i have bailed out on 1 or 2 that hit rubber.
same thing here on girls fast pitch,all players on field wearing helmets.
if you pitch you have to do what makes you comfortable.

Discussion: courtesy runners

i play open league during week and have to run for myself but there are only 2 games and i don't always back up or cover bases as i should.i can not beat normal runner to first.
my doubles are limp to first and walk to second. my singles are trot first 20ft if thats what you want to call it and walk rest of way while watching outfielders for any sign they may throw to first.
a lot of singles would be doubles and a lot of doubles triples or more for normal runner.
i usualy hit in front of big time home run hitter which makes it nice.in critical situation i will be subsituted for and re-enter.
tournament ball has a lot more games,i have pitched 5 games a day more times than i can remember and try to back up and cover.this is a lot more running than any one else.i don't know if i could play tournament ball with out cr.
i have 2 major leg problems and would love to be able to run again.
