?..
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..

Discussion: just heard from your sponsor....not good news....thanks George SSUSA

Big Mike...Not defending SSUSA but the 60's team I play for went through the same scenerio..We started the season AAA for the same exact reasons as your team..We played 2 tourney's....got our asses handed to us....didn't win a game and were run ruled most of the time...Our manager went through the appeal process and George immediately move us back to AA...Only becuase there is no single A...:-o)...Hope your sponsor stays with you....Just my .02..

Discussion: Talk regarding illegal bats

I have played against 1 team in particular that we all know uses a few shaved bats...How do I know?? First couple of days..guys are hitting with very little pop...Come big games...Guys that don't normally hit them out are all of a sudden clearing the fences....This is in Cali and Az...I also had a guy in our league come right out and proclaim..." Just got my bat back for getting rolled "...We thought he was joking....truth is..he was not..A couple of us got together and told him...First of all it's BS that he wold do something like that and second..if we saw him using it..we would call him on it...He is probably one of the best players around this area and already crushes the ball...Makes no sense to me...As far as the team...If it's that important for them to win...I feel sorry for them...One quick note...In a game against another team..this team would use the bats and immediately take them behind the dugout..We already knew why..and one Ump took notice and went to the director..Don't know what happened after that...

Discussion: WHAT IS A MAJOR PLUS PLAYER?

Met Joe in Vegas last year...Just a great guy but I watched him just frickin rake the ball...Seemed like every time I watched, he hit one out..Never played against him due to the fact I don't play at that level, but the thing that impressed me the most was he was just a good guy with a lot of skill.....I'm sure there are more guys like that, I have just never seen a guy his age with that much skill...

Discussion: WHAT IS A MAJOR PLUS PLAYER?

Webbie..Speaking for my self...Never been asked..I have the speed and glove but don't hit for much power...I'm also not a big guy..I play 65's and play league with few Major+ guys and hold my own..I also play 60's..In the 60's I have an average arm from the OF...my arm is better than average in the 65's from the OF..I can play anywhere needed but most of the guys I know that are Major+..have a I am better than you attitude...Some are, some aren't..That's just a small samplingi of what I hear from other guys.
