Topic: Bats
Discussion: HELP---I just don't get it!

As I understand the Dudley bat with the tacky barrel, is for the bat to generate more backspin. Much like a golf ball, the more backspin generated on impact, the longer it will stay in the air.

At least that's what I have been told.

That was the point I was making. Last year
11 50AAA teams, this year 17. Happy for growth but the 50's are not the largest group. 55s and 60s are.

I'm concerned about a 130 bracket game ending at 300 ish and then having to fight traffic assuming no accident or closure for a 500 pm game and having to jump out of car to play. This goessay for any teams out there. Hard to get loone after playing then sitting in car for extended period of time. Leads to injury.

Its the Friday traffic I as referring to, and its a 99.999% certainty teams will be traveling West.

50AAA is playing Pool and First Bracket at BLD, losers of those First Bracket games have to drive to DW to play a second bracket game.

Which means those that have to play will get all stiff from sitting in traffic and have to get out of the car and play a game.

I would rather play into the night on Saturday ( we do it at Worlds in Vegas, not sure why its an issue in PHX) than have to force 4 games into a Friday.

I don't mind that option if the alternative is staying in phoenix for what could potentially be a single game at who knows what time.

If a team goes 0-2 in bracket play they have no choice but to hang out Saturday waiting for what couled be a single game, at which point your stuck with cost of hotel on Saturday night.

I would rather only see 3 games on friday as people will be tired from traveling in late Thursday or early Friday morning.

Due to injury and scheduling conflicts, we are in need of an infielder and outfielder.

We are a 50AAA team.

Please contact me at hc50ssoftball@gmail.com

Thank you

Thank you for getting tentative field assignments out. I do have one suggestion, is that for 50AAA, those playing games at BLD in Gilbert and then having to shuttle over to Desert West on Friday afternoon for what looks like a second bracket game ( potential 4 games on Friday?)
will face the possibility of a 1.5 hour drive ( its almost 40 miles and 45 minutes without traffic ), and traffic through PHX gets pretty bad.

Thank you for your time and efforts.

Dave, it was you who said Daffster needed to be more specific to get at least an idea.

Which is why I was specific.

Jdub - yes they were. I was at both. As much as I like Phoenix if you guess wrong on hotel, you could be 45 mins away from field. I was at Mofford and staying with friends 2 years ago, but they lived in Gilbert.

LONG Drive.

Discussion: Lost Glove @ Maidu

Hi All,

My team was in the last game at Maidu Park on Friday afternoon (8/8/2014)in the first base dugout.

In the chaos of packing up, collecting fees, figuring out our game time for Saturday, I managed to leave my glove in the dugout.

First: Did anyone happen to see it when they were leaving the field ( maybe cutting through our dugout to parking lot.

Second: Does anyone know of a softball board for Northern California that might cover any leagues played at Maidu on Friday nights.

The glove is a Glovesmith, black and tan with my name on the B. Dodge on the thumb.

Stephanie from SSUSA has been great in trying to track down city personnel to see if it possibly got put into one of the field lockers.

Any help would be appreciated. I have had the glove for 11 years and really like it, and dont want to spend another $300 to have another one made.

I can be reached at GitRDone50s@gmail.com

Thank you.

Bill
