Discussion: masks

RV: Simple solution..Don't play any SSUSA tourneys..Having played both, you just need to play by their rules. If you don't like it..don't play..Simple as that..

Discussion: Pitching masks revisited

Wayne and Ace,,,You are correct....we tried to bring up the subject, hell we even suggested using wood bats...Most of the guys had a fit, they acted like we asked for their first born..It's too bad that it will take a catastrophic injury for someone to take action. I could hit with a newspaper and it wouldn't be much different than my Miken,Reebok or Combat...Just my .02

Discussion: Pitching masks revisited

I don't pitch but 2 things I have noticed since the rule change..#1 Screaming line drive up the middle..#2...Sorry pitcher..are you ok...Come on fellas..this is slowpitch and we can control our batting..I know sometimes it is a mistake..but most times ????

Discussion: Ca players etc etc

I live in Prescott,Az and we have had our share last year..I have no grass to water and most of this area is landscaped with rocks, boulders etc...Water conservation is still an issue but I control mine carefully. Lets pray the fires in Cali ( I am a native) get put out with minimal destruction and no lives lost..

Discussion: where are all the pitchers

Here in Prescott..Almost all the pitchers are moving down at least 1 division..Why ???? Word has it that they are tired of being drilled. The division they are going down to don't hit the ball as hard..Some of the guys suggested changing balls or bats but most of the guys threw a fit...But the guys that threw the fit...don't pitch or don't play in the infield. We now have 2 pitchers in a 40-50 man league...Should be an interesting season..I don't pitch but I'm also not a big hitter. We had a guy that got the ball drilled back at him while pitching..he made the plays but after a few innings he just tossed the ball to an infielder and went to the outfield while saying.." That's it, I'm not pitching again "

Discussion: Corky

I agree with Big Mike and gary...Corky did a lot more than just sell equipment. He was always affable and gave some really good advice..Bad PR move...

Discussion: Suspensions

?..
Speaking for myself....I always wear a mouthpiece and cup in the inf or of..If I play 3rd or SS, I add a chest protector, wrist guard and mask. I also wear compression sliders at all times..I'm 65 and none of that stuff weighs enough to slow me down. Most guys on the 2 teams I play for...Pretty much do the same to some degree.Just my .02

Dennis. Don't think they are changing a thing. I don't know of anybody that won't be playing again next season.I'm just a line drive hitter so I don't really have a dog in this fight.

Discussion: The Rock balls

Webbie...I played in Vegas with both the 60's and 65's...Played LF and LCF...Most of the guys had the same issues...Ball never seemed to fly straight..We had more dropped balls than normal...Made every fly ball an adventure...More so than normal....Loved hitting the ball...not so much catching it...Seams were an issue as well...Thought it was just us...Maybe not..
