Discussion: Sponsors Question (Poll)

17...Can't speak for all but I play for 2 Sponsored teams...They pay tourney fees and supply us with 3 jerseys (each team) and hats..Seems to me that is enough...I know a few guys that also play for different team and the same applies for them. We play 8-10 tourneys a year (both teams)...I have heard of teams that are "free ride" teams...But I have also heard that some of them are cut throat...Doesn't sound like much fun to me..Most of the guys I know are satisfied with uni's and fees paid...Just my .02

southerson...Don't shoot all the dogs because some have fleas..I'm 64. Yesterday we played with 3 teams...rotating each inning...Played 8 innings in 2 hours..I was up 7 times and had a total of 10 pitches...Note that this is a Senior League in Prescott, AZ...Just sayin..I go up to hit as do most of my buddies..

swing...all...I have no problem with either way we go..Interesting conversatio today at our game...Most of the guys I talked to also don't care about 0-0...1-1, 70' bases..But the guys I talked with didn't even vote...Not really sure why ...I do know that quite a few of them don't play Tourneys and don't get on this site...Call it what you will, but none of them voted...That could be a big issue...BTW: I play both 60's and 65 tourneys and like most of you...I just play because I can..

boston..I was in the on deck circle when the skies opened up..After a 2 hour delay...My understanding was the same as yours...The City cancelled the tourney...But the fields where a mess anyway. Kind of a bummer but nothing they could do...

I'm usually the least negative person towards SSUSA..But we were scheduled to play at 11:30 on Friday...Now we are playing at 3:30...Which means I now have to change my hotel reservations at the last minute..The positive is...It saves me one day of a hotel charge..

If I am currently playing with a 65aa..Can I also play 60 aaa ? We had a discussion about this in out morning practice today...No one seems to know the answer. I've looked around and can't find the answer either..

ss13: I pitch occasionally ( not very well )...Heck yes I would prefer 1-1...It's one less strike to worry about...

wagon: Don't get angry...:-o). I'm 64 and really don't care if it's 0-0 1-1 2-2...I very seldom take more than 1 pitch anyway..Most of the guys I know here in Prescott feel the same way....
