USSSA does have Senior Tournaments. However, the Majority still Prefer T-Ball with Lively Bats & Balls ! ! !

Hey Dave,
Since we "Az Elite" will be done Saturday afternoon can you just pencil us in Saturday afternoon as a 55's Team with Summy's 55 & MTC 55 in the 50/55+ Platinum Bracket? I wouldn't think anyone would Squawk about it!? Timmy ? ? ?

Kind Regards,

There are a lot of ReallyGood Points here, and we all know, You can't Please Everyone ! ! !

JDub: Today's Bats are STOOOPID!

Mango: Ball Selection is the easiest fix for directors to control the safety of the game. Second easiest fix is getting rid of rules that encourage power hitters to hit the ball down (return to the dead ball walk)

Omar: JDub has it right—hot bats have made the game more dangerous and more taxing than ever, especially for older players!

Millette: Everyone knows that the bat/ball combos are TOO HOT for any senior division. If your pitching without a helmet/face guard your putting your life at risk. If a pitcher gets killed or seriously injured because of a shot to the head while NOT wearing a helmet/face guard...it's his own damn fault!

FredS: If I remember right the original Ultra II's were clocked at 114 MPH which is why they were Banned!

bkb555: kind of a no brainer on wearing helmet and mask combo!

Benji4: Masks should be Optional! We are all adults and should be given the choice. Pitchers know the risks. We all agree on the safety issue but people should decide for themselves not be told by some director.

bkb555: I disagree Benji....if the league says they are mandatory, then they should be!

Here's my take in summary: When I was 12 a good friend of mine shot me in the eye and I am blind because of it. He's a Dumb Ass, but it was an Accident! Fred, in 2002 I was the Pitcher that was Beaned by the Original Ultra II. You all have me to Thank for the Banning of the Original Ultra II! I haven't found a Mask/Helmet that doesn't Limit my Vision due to my Blindness, so I personally prefer not wearing one. I get a lot of, "You're Krazy for Pitching" and I'd have to Agree, but that's what I Do!

The Issue is supposed to be Safety First! But these STOOOPID BATS aren't going away (YET)! Sanctions are trying to Protect Pitcher's, and Protect themselves from any Hint of Liability and/or Litigation! But in the end, I'm with Benji4, Masks should be Optional! We are all adults and should be given the choice. Pitchers know the risks. We all agree on the safety issue but people should decide for themselves . . .

ALLPRO,

I was being a little Facetious about Playing 6-Man Outfield! However, with 11 Fielders there are still 4 Infielders. Who are you Discounting as an Infielder - the Pitcher?
Heck, back in da day when we were short 2 guys I'd Pitch and cover 2B. But that was then ! ! !

If they're aloud 11 Fielders (?), maybe those teams should consider playing 6-Man Outfield if they're truly that slow in covering the Gaps!?

We can't Control the STOOOPID BATS, but BALL Selection can somewhat Help. If I recall correctly, I believe SSUSA/LVSSA is on Contract thru 2006 using the Rock at Worlds in Vegas!?

Here's another Novel Idea. Let's Switch to 14" and keep the STOOOPID BATS ! ! ! I remember having so much FUN Playing 14" back in the day, even trying to Steal 2nd and getting thrown out back at 1st cuz I didn't know the Rules. It was Hilarious, and everyone was having a Grand Ole Time Laughing at/with each other ! ! !

SBS,
I live in the Tuke and there's a Circle K within walking distance of the fields! Not only that, across from Circle K is On the Border! There's also an IHOP, Native Grill & Wings which is my Watering Hole, a Jack in the Box, Wendy's even closer than the Circle K! Behind the Circle K are a few other really Outstanding Restaurants and an AMC Theatre!

So tell us SBS, WTF are you really Bitching about (LOL) ? ? ?

Have an Awesome 2015 Season,

Metal is/was Safer and 300' Fences were Built for Slow Pitch Softball. I used to be able to Field the middle, now I have to wear Goalie/Catcher Equipment for my own Safety!?

The NCAA Incorporated Limits on Bats Technology, into High School and Little League too. I'm just hoping it will trickle over into Recreational Softball as well.

I used to Play for The Gorillas, now there are more and more Gorillas Swinging STOOOPID BATS. I'm just say'n, C'MON MAN ! ! !

Alan,

Can you please provide Before & After Bat Compression Specs? A Lot of BP & Chatter about Performance, but what about the Importance of Maintaining Bat Spec Compliance ! ? ! ?

I'm all about Improvements in Technology, but you know where I Truly Stand regarding all these STOOOPID BATS ! ! !
