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.

Discussion: Player needs team for AZ Winter World

There are quite a few teams in those age ranges in your boarding states that attend it at times. You should call them first.
If your not sure who they are, check past records here.

Robo,
It could save about 5-6 minutes.
Not as ludicrous an idea as the imposed flip-flop rule though.

Discussion: Is there a site with player stats?

None I am aware of. It's hard enough to get scores from the associations let alone about 12x that for stats.
Why don't you start one.... it would keep you busy.

Agree on both posts about the bats, however, as long as their making money they will continue until the dust settles should someone get killed.
ASA allows senior bats in senior events. Balls vary in them also.

Caps signify yelling..period. Honestly...try using the VIEW at top of the screen, drop down to ZOOM IN tab and increase font size. You can increase the font size so a person that uses a \red\white can\could read them.
Doubt you are in such bad shape though.
Enjoy Senior ball, it's a hoot.

Marv,
Am well aware of which changed did what and for the why. Huff Puff, I'm almost to first.... Help, I need a runner blue.
Remember the moves in base lined over the years (decades) for them as well. By the time we retire, lol, they will likely be at 75. Possibly with the mound at the 60 limit as it is.
Understand the 'time' (did all that) but players are paying through the 'nose* for it, and the takers of that are living on OPM. And that IS what it is all about, more of it.

*gonna have to cut back on that crack stuff. my noise is going through withdrawals.
lol
I read good things about your events. But as far as the 12mph ball goes, I believe if it arcs at 6' level its legal as song as the delivery to the release point was legal.

So how did that questionable ball play out you emailed me about for the other event?

While this has been brought up more than a few times, both those issues mentioned are valid but there are others also. CR's for one, on deck batter not ready, arguments on bad calls or injuries which thank God, are rare, & probably a few I forgot.
I'm against it. It's another item that cuts the game from where it originally was,

They have taken away runs or all kinds, time to play a full game, players choice of wearing protection or not, and more.
Given few safety rules some of which were changed more than once.
Increased distances for base running and pitching.
And fee cost, well it's up there.
But over all it is still good and we continue to attend.
