Discussion: Whats Best

IMO, hemi's 1st and last mentioned are the best. Might be hard to find the 1st run of the Ambush though. Not sure about the another one. The Ambush is a Combat bat, Green lettering over Grey. or at least the one I refer to.

Discussion: RENO WEATHER

Not too early as you say, but rather timely, giving teams time to plan. The fact that many procrastinate and do last minute plans. Sure things change, fields change but over all ther are pretty consistant for being correct as posted. It's the teams that pull out for a variety of reasons that cause most of the headaches.
There are many ways to check future 'rain' forecast for almost every place out there.
Rainouts are a possibility everywhere, and they happen. That sucks, cose wise and for time lost. Ovder the years I've had two total rainouts and a couple one days.
Depending on which way the air currents flow and even then you can self predict fairly well in advance what it will be like by looking at the forecast and watch the flow at about 10 days out of so.

Webbie, bring waders, you'll need them.....lmao Good luch there in Carson. Just hope the lower fields aren't being used or unless they repaired them.

Discussion: Can-Sirs event in Elk Grove, at Laguna Community Park

This weekend at the Can-Sirs event, someone left a HOODIE on the West field in back of the 1st base dugout.
Would like to find owner. Contact me, describe it & pocket content & will try to get it to you somehow.

Your not the only one misplacing stuff. One guy lost his chair twice.

Thank you all for participating.

Discussion: Ball B.S. In lee county

'Rock' has about 4 different balls, not all the same inside, but for cor\come 'listed' may reflect same. Outside coverings may not be same either. Overall good balls depending weather and equipment used with them.
No one ball will satisfy everyone, just like bata and bags let alone the rules.

Discussion: Outfielder caught a flyball with a first baseman mitt?

3.6 is same but added dimensions to glove\mitt.

IMO any one should be able to be used anywhere except for a oversised catchers glove. as in baseball.

Look at 3.6 or at least it is in the 2010 book. I did not look here on line but should be about same rule.

Discussion: Looking for team going to RockN Reno

Most of those guys are still playing somewhere but not sure with whom. If you can get a look at current rosters (65) check for names you know. Some may be playing 60's but averages are better for 65. Too many keep switching off like I did back then when I played with you but had my own team as well. Good days long gone, but remembered.

Discussion: Groups of Teams for Better Seeding

Helps make my point.
If the excuse to do it this way is they were for best best matched games, I'd say best for whom? All same ages bracket & presume and they same playing level, so why not mix it upand play different teams.

When you start moving teams with different ages and ratings into different brackets to play you change the make up of the gamesand the outcomes.
you can read post all over the place about concerns for havinh yo play up or down and maybe a t different level bucause thids or that happened or a tram pulled out.

Asking a team yo play up or down with or without a different rating is one thing but it seems to be many are just placed there to see what happens.

Discussion: Groups of Teams for Better Seeding

Not sure about your group method, could get very complicated**. But one thing I do not like is having to play the same teams you play in league or other events in your area,  through the year. I think it would be better if you played a team out of your region, someone different. Basically, some, but not many, are still used as sandbagger games.

** they keep trying to 'fix' something that wasn't broke.
You want examples, ok PPR, (more than 2 times) & Flip flop.

So where do you put on these events you say you do?

Discussion: Broken bat - coincidence or legit reason?

Do a search here for knobs breaking on here and other sites, see if whatever make is mentioned is same as yours. And as mentioned above me, there have been a rash of them the last couple of years and different brands.

Discussion: BullHead City

curveball,
Correct on OF, haven't dont that for 35 years but for one in Cal cup in Sac or maybe it was Western Natl's about 8\9 years ago played RF. I do\did P, 1st & 3rd.
When the post was originally made it was about softball....
Then revised, maybe to appease the comments. Only think the 400's fence would be suitable for the major and m+ teams If they got it, then do it. But don't envy them for it.
But since temp fences were mantioned, I think that would be good for all even if field actually made (layed out) for the baseball teams as they were mentioned in passing.

Discussion: BullHead City

Dbax, I understand that more that you know. At 65 you can have 11 man fielding so that should ease it up some what, but while I agree on the extra turf needed to cover, it's the same for all teams playing there. Make sure your players are in good shape. lol, though not a laughing matter when it comes down to it.
Maybe play in a Lidi, Gault and maybe it was the Stockton or or the Turlock park off I-5 At least one of those parks has 265' or so fields. Which are still used and overkill for the new senior bats.
But I wouldn't if I were traveling that far as you would need to do let alone 1\4 that for me.
The Major and M+ teams shouldn't have a problem with it nor should the younger generation 40's up.

Discussion: BullHead City

Bullhead City, welcome the the 21st century of softball equipment use.
If one takes the time to search the post over many year back, I think you'll find dozens of them about shots well over the 300 foot fences and some stating way more.
Given the vats now in use and even recent posts I think the 400' fences are a good thing. Anyone or team that has players able to reach that mark will really have some bragging rights.
The only place I know of that has a field about like to that is Pioneer Park in Mesquite NV. The upper baseball field there which is usually always in use for tournaments.
Teams with good hitters will show if not for the 400' challenge of a shot like that but then maybe for the gaps that will be there to place hit if you can. I know there are some good place hitters out there.
Grow, Bullhead, Grow.
