Discussion: WHO ARE CURRENTLY THE MOST POWERFUL HITTERS IN SENIOR SOFTBALL

Sunshine1949............No animosity what-so-ever...........If you took the time to "READ" my reply, I stated they DID NOT have access to the Senior Bats of today!! Different game, different equipment!

Mr. Manassas.......Guess you never saw these "power suppliers" of Softball hit and they were not driving the ball with today's Senior Bats!

Right up front BruceinGa, Umpires do not get paid on an hourly-wage, they are paid a per-game fee!

Discussion: Cant we all just get along

In complete agreement with your point of view Paco13..........I have said it for a few years now but things in Senior Ball when it comes to the bats, etc. will never change regardless of any injuries and/or deaths...........The "powers to be" are so far "in the bed" with the bat manufactures with BOTH pocketing large amounts of $$$$$$ and as long as we the Seniors are willing to keep shelling out the big $$$$ for Tourneys, Bats, Forced upon Equipment, etc., things will never change!!!!!!

Discussion: JEALOUSY AND ENVY ONE OF MANS MANY WEAKNESSES

Titanhd........Assuming you are looking for any updates from my club "Banker & Mann" in the 55 Major? They won both bracket games yesterday over SI/R.Mtn. Thunder (CO) and Rio Grande (NM). Won this morning over Gonzalez Insulation (TX) to begin the double-elimination portion and just lost by 1-run to the High Street Bucs (MD).

My apologies if that was not the club you were referring to.................

The major problem with the Canseco statement is they put themselves on the same level as some of greatest power hitters that the game has ever been blessed with WITHOUT any type of PAST HISTORY playing the Great Game of Slow-Pitch Softball.......Their background is Baseball which is not relevant to Softball.

Discussion: WMC schedules

Back in the good 'ol days, had a club participate in a 132-team bracket at the Canton Complex (outside of Detroit) for the U.S.S.S.A. National Qualifier. Lost our first game and played 14 games in the weekend including a scheduled game at 12 midnight. Still have the bracket sheet from the tourney in which we came through the loser's bracket to finish 5th and qualify.

Back in the Pro-days, the "Detroit Caesars" signed Norm Cash & Mickey Stanley (both former Detroit Tigers) to contracts. They could play some very good defense but couldn't hit a lick with the 12" ball thrown underhand to them. They didn't last too long but did sell some serious tickets because of their names.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Aluminum bats and blue dot balls

and while we're on the subject, with all of $$$$$ being made on senior tournaments, you'd think tourney's like the Northern, Western, Eastern & Southern and perhaps a few more, would think about a "Paid Entry Fee" into the Worlds to the winning division clubs.

Discussion: Aluminum bats and blue dot balls

To make my point further, my current club (Banker & Mann) is currently playing in the Northern Championships which is about an easy 1-hour drive from me home and I refuse to attend because I have lost the "love for the game" due to the current state of affairs with Senior Softball and the Associations that operate them.

Excellent points of view Pricer........Both you & LeeLee50 have solid targets but it still comes to play with SSUSA & the Bat Manufactures plus all of the other $$$$$ making sectors they control......For the most part as a Senior Softball Club Sponsor, it's like me cutting a check for the Green Fees to allow a group of guys to go play a weekend's worth of Golf. No more, no less. These Senior Associations give absolutely no respect or acknowledgement to Sponsors (unlike the old days when they were Gold)......Just bring in the large numbers and $$$$$$$!

Typical but they own this site. There are just certain discussions that they feel justified closing instead of continuing the topic discussion. Don't feel left out, this is typical.
