Discussion: Can someone tell me why DeMarini Black Ops bag is so expensive

In a word greed.

I looked into them as well as a few other large bags. The Tanel 360 is up there also but seems guys like it. A Barrage bag isn't or wasn't guite so $$ but company ran out. The make a couple different sizes so you have to do homework. Found a great bad but had delivery issues with them. took month hals to get it and had to \get cc company to tell them order would be cancelled if not delivered within xxx number of days. Got a bag its 1. very big, 2. has more pockets than probably any other bag out there, Bag I finally got it, is made of so so quality, had lots of storage, holds more than 6 bats, depending on how you use bag can do about 11. Company I think is shoe string type, but if you get the product you might like it.
I have placed everything in it not actually carried it place to place or the like. it sits ready to go but since I can't play (yet or who knows when) it will stay there ready to go. Holds all my gear pitcher stuff also.
Sport 55 bag roller bag. Give appearance of big company but not. I had ti really get into them since I didn't get my bag as originally stated and was prepaid.

Topic: Tournaments
Discussion: CERTAIN FEES!!

Come up to one of the NCSSA events and play. I cannot recall one where you didn't get 5 games for the 300 or so unless it was due to a forfeit somewhere by someone. Sched is posted on site and make a couple. Some are really popular and sell out fast.
P-town Mar, Turlock Apr, Elk Grove May, Tuolomne June, BLD Manteca in Aug, these are always sold out. and imo the better ones. Many others are good as well.

Discussion: One up rule for 70's

70's up should be unlimited HR. It's bad enough they cut games short, mix ages and ratings, DBO the excess HRs and about everything else for the 70's up, but if anything the older you get the more game like it was say in the 60-90's should be played instead of all the BS that is just getting worse every year.
Playing exhibition is also a slap in the face to some extent. But their may be a few valid reasons for not winning but I can't see the justification for the all tourney part being disallowed.
I'm not there 70 or close at 66, so I have no horse in that race. But the older you get the more relaxed the game should be for them. But it seems they make it even worse for them.
Just my take on it all.

Also, not sure how it transforms the images to phones, tablets or what ever. But works with most OS's from what i remember. If I were still playing I would have ordered one to try. but I'm out for a bit it seems.

Bruce, No, it is a new produce introduced at CES this last week. And no, I was not there, wish I were, I read a few hundred posts on new products....
But its a reasonable cost product for multiple sports.

Discussion: suggestions to stop all the complaining about home runs & dead ball outs

I like the 3 hr per inning for the M+ teams, all ages. Why discriminate due to age. There is enough within some other issues in the game. For Major teams go to 2 hr per inning. This may well be bringing the game for them to the way it was before the limits started.
If the mercy rule is used the games may be short if a team doesn't perform.
Other ideas would be one up hr across the board. any other is then a DBO.
I do not like DBO's but seems that most replies tend to lean towards it. Last idea? make all HRs a walk. Not the greatest one though.
Yes, the managers should have a big say in it all. And as mentioned, a mass emil has been done before so that is a no-brainer unless they ignore it. Time to respond should be reasonable since some still don't use the pc\mac and depend on others for info.
Do not believe it's a radical idea either. Just one to make the game a little more like it used to be.
As for best time to do a survey, no time is better than the present ( ie; mass mailing to managers) before the season get started. not a half year gone and some whimsical thought at a table. Most are in a hurry to get on the field and warm up.
Yea, 12 have the say of 10k or so overall. Real representation. LMAO
Happy New Year, stay healthy.

Alan, It's a well known fact, Combat makes great bats. Pretty much for any assn's use.


I got my whole post on the Twilight bat removed and didn't even have pricing....
Seems as though bias is alive and well. STILL
I'm not even a rep or dealer either...

Discussion: Combat Avarice G2 USSSA review

With only 7 days into the year, correct me if wrong but I believe this is the 1st bat you've done this year...That Triad was last year and last one mentioned....
So the 'early lead' doesn't say much.
Happy New Year...

Discussion: SSUSA shares DBO rationale Senior

Staff, you didn't address the question Downs put fourth... kinda just cut him off.

PattyMac, I visited the Smokey site and there is some interesting figures there... Should be a great place to play a tournament.

Seems as though 'staff' wants to relive the past or regress to maybe it could have been times. The teams in USA etc (they wanna be like) are not seniors but basically paid players which is not allowed here supposedly, but some know better. Another rule that will likely go away after a bit..''hit & sit''...
Seems there is always a new rule now that comes and then goes over the last few years. Softball dementia I guess, lol.
As we age you should get more out of the game but yet they take it away from tho older guys.

Mango, some good points.
Southernson, Its rewording of same old songs of the past with emphasis game restricting time. Something like shorter games = more game times + more team slots ='s more $$$. And the snowball keeps on rolling.

Discussion: how do I sign up to play softball in 2014

If you have played for any other team in senior ball you might want to mention who they were, and at what level the team was. Also if willing to travel.
Good luck to you in this, stay healthy and safe.

Discussion: NCSSA Tournament Schedule

Old web site left out the 70's for the rule in 2012 and 2013 is under SSUSA rule on page 66 since no mention I would have to assume unless buried in one of the board minutes sometime back. Not allowed. NCSSA's rules not up at all hasn't been for some time.
I read minutes and I think your right 70's were left out. But was told all were under 2 roster provision now... Blind leading the blind.
Left you a note via email.
Maybe Secretary Weaver or some reason left it out. This issue was the longest one discussed.

Discussion: NCSSA Tournament Schedule

Win,
It was my understanding after about 2-3 votes on this long, really long discussion that it finally came down to all ages can have players on two rosters.
I haven't read the finalized report.
Some had it others, did not and the 50 & 55 wanted it...I thought the 65 7's up also. but one vote left the 75 out for some reason I think but end result was all have it
so if as player is on two teams he will need to make choices cause the bottom line is it could effect the teams status down the road.
Not many attended.

How's it going Omar?
Hope the new years is good to you.
That paid for web is worthless imo but it is what is is and I'd be surprised if it gets up on time let alone accurate since much of what is on there now is not working or right.
But hopefully the schedule is correct, baring cancellations which are about 8 a year.
You still out of town?
