Discussion: Age Groups

I do not believe they do...
You can play the age group of interest (say 50 for example,) if you turn that age (50) at any time during the calendar year.
IE you can play 50's at age 49 if you turn 50 in Dec of that year.

Discussion: Elegiblity

Yes, but there are consequences for the "team" as for your playing history at AAA. If the team comes back into play as a team with say 6-7 ( not sure exactly how many) of the existing players, if no one else has played AAA within the last 2-3 years and no one else the team picks up to complete the team shouldn't suffer.
However if there are 3 AAA players on it, you can count on playing 3A.
What the hey, play 3A and you all will improve.
Stay healthy.

Discussion: When Is It Bat Altering?


My view on it
Rule 3.4(5) covers it
1. one knob cuff ok
2. ok No more than two layers of tape.
3. illegal
4. illegal
5. illegal
6. I think that would depend on what was done...but most likely illegal.

Reads like you have done all of them already.

Lefty,
Why practice using something other than what you would use in league or any tournament you might play in.
I'd think you would get a better idea how your performance would be that way.
Just curious here.
Stay healthy.

Discussion: Fields and Teams - Major Tournaments

Mike, Here on paper it reads very valid, however never knowing who will show up could cause a problem. Some fields may not have many teams while others are over the play limits. Either way it is a valid thought.
Split pretty much down the middle this way, if same teams show up or any changes made between then and next year, reflect same team numbers per age division it is a worthy idea.
But can 'see' the wrench being ready to throw at ya.

Lecak,

Go down to 'Mayor seeks union concessions', there is 1 line that mentioned it. This was in 2012-2013. So it isn't new to Vegas.

Watch out for the hole in the damn... :>)
Hoover only supplies about 23% of the STATES power. More goes to CA 28%. Nv has another energy plant with output 5x that of Hoover.
Where the power goes:

I got that from a guy who lives in Vegas. don't know where don't really care but have known him for about 15 years.
Could be, not black out areas as normally done in grids, but selective area type useage. I doubt they would do the casinos.

Thank you staff. Understand the issue w\ ages mentioned but would bet the play that way anyway in league. Though for any age, it is usually better to play in the daylight time. Just depends on suns position relative to players and batter.
With all the restrictions\caveats your stuck with (& agreed to) why stay there? Seems as though NSA has you by the ...err gonads.
Time frame for event is just before Huntsman, perhaps you could negotiate a 'better' deal St George. Ok, I know you have a 'contract' you always use that, but it does eventually end as did the last one and ones before it.
Then again, St G may not want their excellent fields used for 5 weeks in a row either.
Hope you all made it back to Sac safely.

Thanks Bruce.
Over a 100 views and not one post till yours.. And players wonder why polls don't get more replies.
Sounds like it's a antiquated system still being used. The lights should all be up in about 5 minutes or less. But Vegas has areas that haver revolving power cutbacks too, so that could be one part of the problem.
I just wonder why more games weren't played at night to either make up time lost due to weather or as regular bracketing.

Were the field lights used at night or not?
If not, why not?
I'd think a great amount of the players use them in the leagues they play in, I know we use them here.
So that shouldn't be a factor.
If they do not use them perhaps the games would\could be completed if they used them. Barring incidents like weather.

Discussion: WHO ARE CURRENTLY THE MOST POWERFUL HITTERS IN SENIOR SOFTBALL

I accept them into sr ball as another player with talent. May not be with open arms but it's nice that another pair of seniors from different sides of the U.S. can play.
The issue is not the peds, because it won't be solved this way as neither will altered bats or bats that are 'legal' yet haven't made it to open retail market in 5 years.
Playing M+ limits the who and all else your limited to now. But on a good team as he was in Vegas, I hope he had fun at least.
Enjoy and ya all stay healthy.

I got one & voted, am in CA.

There are only about 150 that use this board or on occasion.
Look at how many do not post any info on who or even there they are. so chances are good they didn't post email addys.

Agree with Omar and that was same results I got in 2012 from poll I did.
I hit first good pitch I like, be it 1st or after 3\2 count.

Marv, having the one to waste helps in that issue but some don't use it.
I'm still opposed to 1-1 start with or w\o 1 to waste.

the wood,
to quote: Did anyone bother to tell those guys to not be so egocentric? If they did it would have monopolized the threads for quite a while.

Doing so would cause a post battle of wits (lol) and likely get deleted as would the other sentence. some already vanished.
You bring up some good points though.
Stay healthy.
