Discussion: Dave Adwell passing

Today was Dave Adwells funeral. As I sat there listening and watching everything going on the real spirit and meaning of Senior Softball became quite clear. Names shall always remain a mystery---I watched as grown men that are so tough in every day life had tears running unashamedly for a man we all loved like a brother. Bonds are made playing this game and traveling with our teammates that are stronger than anyone can really imagine. I talked to Dave almost every day year round --I will miss him more than I can imagine at this point. As we get older we all need to take time to appreciate what we have. It will not always be here!!! Dave I for one will miss you --

Discussion: Time to move TOC

d45 Indiana Legends won 65AA--
tg69 273 teams qualified--or should that be said that there were 273 available spots of which some teams qualified more than once--without looking I know that last year Syracuse Cyclones 65 AA qualified more than once as did US Jobs this year---personally I think TOC is a great tournament followed closely by the Winternationals in Ft Myers SSUSA keep up the great but unthankful work ---you are doing a great job

Rick#8 if I could not see Indiana when I read the topic how do you expect me to see a map--complete senior moment----now I have one for comment--I say that Michigan borders Illinois with Lake Michigan being the border north of Chicago--others have told me this is not so--comments please!!!!

someone explain to me how a team can be comprised of players from Ohio Indiana and Illinois-----the adjoining state rule makes it impossible for Ohio and Illinois players to be on the same team----

Discussion: Catcher's verbal interference

Swing I hope you realize that I am sitting south of Louisville and it is cold and wet and I am wishing we could be out hitting someplace since that cannot happen I choose to have some fun baiting some of you guys---I know you all have valid points on most issues and I generally don't say anything but occassionally the devil makes me try to stir you up---every morning I get up and walk out to pick up my paper its dark (5:30) and I look at the sky and give my thanks that i can still play a kids game--in the obits there are many my age and younger that no longer have that opportunity and now I think I bet all of them would be glad to hear a catcher talk--and swing would you rather I address you as 46/36 haha

well Cal I went back and reread the entire post about half way through I found your comment interjecting the tournament--it started as a co ed league game--I can only speak for myself and what i have seen heard and/or done--first I have never heard an umpire say to high they say illegal---secondly neither the umpire or catcher have any bearing into what i can or cannot hit--if I feel I can hit it I swing even if I hear illegal--look at it from another angle--runner going into second and rounds the bag guys in dugout watching the ball yelling for him to hold second base--runner watching third baseman down the line toward home plate with no chance to reverse and get back to third to take the throw guess what I do not heed advice from dugout and brush dirt off my pants as I stand safely on third base---oh yeah I am smiling at the time because I am happy to still be playing

Swing you are sounding like Gary19 now--- an ASA rule on SSUSA message board---haha--gentlemen look where we are--duh a SENIOR softball message board---why do people take themselves so seriously----I hope all of you youngsters can still be playing at my age and then you will see how goofy it was to get so up in arms over a catcher talking----incidentally us "old" guys handed our "young" teammates an 8 run lead at TOC all star game which they ended up losing--what does that tell you----Cal I am not advocating a catcher or anyone else being allowed to verbally interfere I am just saying it really doesn't hurt anything unless someone is looking for an excuse---

heck HJ if I said I accidentally slid at home plate at Columbus I lied--I slid intentionally----point is we are human and mistakes are made by everyone but to need a rule as to catcher talking is a joke---HJ how many 65s coming to Barberton this year??

cal50--hate to burst the bubble but I do not hear the umpire---most that know me would tell you umpire calling high pitch is mute point as I have swung and am on my way toward first base--I am just amazed to have been attacked over my age for stating my opinion--hehehehe

swing I certainly am glad to be 15 years out of your division---first my age group was taught CONCENTRATION if you concentrate outside interference is not heard--class you say if you knew me you would learn something about class-- I don't know you but respect your right to make absurd statements----and age allows me to just feel good about doing something I enjoy perhaps you will be fortunate enough to still give 110 percent as I do at even an advanced age--

perhaps we need to have a list of Prima Donnas and when one come sto bat a public address announcer can say Prima Donna coming to the plate slience please----come on guys it is a game and we as seniors should just be thankful we can still play---I certainbly hope a catcher does not sneeze or even take a deep breath

Discussion: TOC All Star Game

After a safe trip home with much thought about the TOC there was one question and comment that stuck out above all others---exactly what happened to the UNDER 65 National All Stars?? you young bucks were handed an 8 run lead at the end of 3 innings and you let Terrys hand picked loaded team beat you!!!!!! Just kidding guys BUT really what happened to you????
My first TOC and I think it was great--the banquet was special the food good (not enough of it) The Wounded Warrior Game and talks at the banquet were unforgettable--I was proud to be able to be on the same field (even if our young guys let us down) with these fine young men--makes me proud to be an American---
Thank you Terry Dave Bill Fran and staff for a wonderful event---
