Discussion: Need three players for team

d45..What age ? I am assuming 65-69 AA..I play for a 60AA team as of now but just turned 64, which means I can play 65 next season..Currently living in Cali but will be living in Prescott Az full time as of 11/1/12..May be playing for a Prescott team but nothing has been confirmed...Let me know..
BTW: I play almost anywhere but prefer LF / LC / RC..But can play anywhere in the Inf as well..

Discussion: Open or Closed stance..

Guys..Thanks for all the constructive points. some interesting things to ponder...For the other morons....It must be sad to have to be the way you are...Being an old guy, I tend to look at things on a more positive note. That being said, if you are going to post assinine comments, you're only wasting your time because no one really cares what you think except mommy and daddy..

Monty...Just looking for opinions..My hitting is fine but not great...But I figure until I bat 1.000...It can improve...

Guys..Thanks for the input..Bubble Gum, my hitting is fine but I figure a person can always improve by listening...Except apparently for you. I guess you have it figured out.

Lighten up guys...0 ?..I'm not looking for an answer...Just curious..And no, all the guys on my teams don't use the same stance...Know the names..Helmer,Crine and Machenko but as most of us..We're not in the same category as they are. I'm sure as heck not..

Tim...Senior softball is fairly new to me..What do you mean "launch position"..I am familiar with "launch angle" in golf...I am basically a line drive hitter with occasional pop and I find this subject interesting...
?: Rose.Ruth etc are trying to hit a 90 mph fastball...Slowpitch is a little different, but I understand your point..

Discussion: Hamstring Pull

surf..Having been a runner mosat of my life.(19 Marathons, 4 Ironmans and many many other races)..I'm glad you are better. have always and will always warm up for at least 20-30 minutes prior to game. I was a sprinter in HS and had a great coach that always pushed us to warm up properly...I realized that I had abnormally large hammys (skinny upper body...big legs )..I stretch 2 times a day and have for almost 50 years and knck on wood have had minimal muscle issues..Find what works for you and STICK WITH IT...I am now 64 and ALWAYS RUN FOR MYSELF ( and others also :-o)

Discussion: 5 run spot that allows 6 runs per inning to lower rated teams

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: THE NEED FOR SEVEN INNINGS

Had a simlar situation on a Thursday night league game..Opposing team down 6..Bottom of 6...They score 6 for the tie..Since it was the last game, the Ump asks if we would like to keep playing..We agree and score 6 more..Bottom half..they score 6 again...Ump asks again same question..We keep playing and we score 3..They come up and score 4 to win the game..Neither team wanted to quit is the moral of the story...We would have played as long as we could so 7 innings is not a stretch..Would have been a better story if we would have won..

Discussion: Round robin seeding

Gary19::: I understand what the point is..But for me personally..I get a call or e-mail from my Manager..He tell us where and when..The cost for me is usually minimal..Except for Vegas and Reno..But after all the years off, I am just glad that I am playing...I'm neither good enough or smart enough to worry about the particulars...:-o)

Discussion: Round robin seeding

southernson: You are correct in that assumption but no one forces you to play..I have no issue with a level playing field and I also think the people that put these events on do the best they can with what they have..Bottom line for me is..I want to play..I am new to Senior Softball after 15 years off and if I showed up to a tourney and found out that there were only Major/Major+ teams that we had to play with no 5 run rule (The team I play for is AA)..I would still go out and play. We would probably get our arses hande to us..But I would still play..I try not to worry about things I have no control over..For me personally I would not want to be a Manager..(Been there..Done that for many years in the 80's & 90's )...Nothing personal and we can agree to disagree..Tom
