Tim,

Get it right, it's STOOOPID BATS ! ! !

Larger Mat

1-1 Count

7 or 9 HR's, 1 Up, anything else is an Out

No Dismantling of Teams, as it's an Option & Honor to Play at the Highest Level. I believe we can Combine 50M/50M+, but the Equalizer Rules need to be Tweaked (with Team Manager Approvals). I don't believe 50M+ Teams should ever be Excluded from 50M Play simply because they are "Too Good" a-la Arizona in state Tournaments. That is Total Bu!!$#!T IMHO, and any 50M Team that Whines that much should just Fold up Tent, and Throw in the Towel (IMHO) ! ! !

Tri18 = Honest Abe

Some of us have not reached the Grouchy Old Man Status yet, so keep doing what you do ! ! !

BTW, we were Ambushed in French Valley, CA by 30mph winds Howling in from Left-Center. AZ Elite was unable to produce 1 Homer in that game, although Nazzareno I believe hit 2 or 3, and managed to come back and beat us in the 1 Game Championship Game in 8 innings (LOL) ! ! !

Discussion: Major Plus

Tim & I had discussions previously regarding West Coast Major Plus Team Schedules. Unfortunately there's such a Huge Mileage Gap in Tournament Locations that AZ Elite suffers the most. We are Limited to Dwindling Winter World, Spring World, and the Southwest Tournaments in SSUSA! Other than that, at least Marv allows us to Play in his SCSSA Tournaments. Again, AZ SSUSA has basically shut us out of Playing in the 50's, and there isn't even any Promotion for 40+ Teams!? It's Disheartening for lack of better words ! ! !

Discussion: Major Plus

NSA Manteca (NorCal) Costs too much! NSA Dallas (DFW) Costs too much! NSA Las Vegas is TBA, but Affordable for AZ Elite! No NSA Senior Ball in Arizona, although there are Specialty Tournaments (Hispanic, Native American, Black American). AZ Elite has too many Tokens, so we can't Play in our own State (LOL) ! ! !

There is no need for a 50/55 Major Plus Team to Breakup, as Timmy would suggest. Yet AZ Elite can't even Play SSUSA 50's in Arizona anymore, and aren't even aloud to Play ASA Regular Softball because we are supposedly Better than the majority of Young Kids Playing D & E (LOL) ! ! !

We won't Fool ourselves thinking we can Compete with True 40M+ Teams, but we're Not Opposed to Playing them every now-n-then. A 10 year gap is too much as far as True Senior Softball Standards are . . .

NoName36,

AZ Elite & Nazzareno are 50M+, not 55's. It's likely you have not played us, but not out of the question . . .

Nighthawks 55M+ Played-up this weekend in French Valley, as they were included in our Bracket (AZ Elite & Nazzareno). Good Job Fella's ! ! !

Discussion: Cal Cup & Western Nationals

Tim,

NW Legends & AZ Elite are not as Fortunate as you guys in NorCal. We are pretty much Outta Luck playing in town, so we have to Travel to Play in mixed Age Groups. Yea! I can't speak for NW Legends, but I'd guess it's much of the same for them up in the Great Northwest ? ? ?

We had a few Very Good Games with NW Legends in Las Vegas, but it was just our 2 50M+ Teams. We are able to Drive there, but I'm fairly certain NW Legends flew into Las Vegas.

Given the updates in this thread, it's looking pretty much like it just may be 2 NorCal 50M+ Teams Playing in Sacramento for the Western National Title!? Very Unfortunate that we may not be able to Defend our National Title based on Costs!? If this is the Future of the M+ Divisions, maybe SSUSA needs to look at using a Point System for Participating Teams, versus a single Tournament location to determine the East -v- West National Title!? Hey Timmy, are you & Rev Conspiring with the Home Office ! ? ! ?

Arizona Elite has San Clemente on our Schedule, and are awaiting confirmation of "Which Format & Rules" will be used for the weekend!? Nazzareno will not be attending, as they have prior commitments elsewhere. Sounds like a Blast, so have FUN and we'll seeya down the road for Payback ! ! !

Discussion: GSC P413 - Questions & Answers

Steve,

Thank you for Sharing your GSC P413 Prototype (Non-Production) Bats with us this weekend in French Valley. Now that you know where the Jabs are coming from you know it was only in Jest, as Rev & Ollie would tell you. Arizona Elite gives the Bat a "FAIR" Rating, as it stacks up just as STOOOPID as all the other Senior Bats ! ! !

Congratulations to Nazzareno on their WIN this weekend, coming through the Losers Bracket to Win a 1 Game Winner Take All Championship. I think we all would agree that some of these Format & Rule Changes are a bit Ridiculous to say the Least!? Best Wishes, and Good Luck to everyong the rest of this Season and Beyond ! ! !

Rev,

Please send Arizona Elite 1ea - 27, 28, 29, and 30 Ounce Bat. We will put them through some Brutal Testing for you. If they are as Good as Proclaimed we will Bless them and put our Stamp of Approval on them. Maybe even Add them to our Arsenal!?!?

I'm a little Confused, are you DAN ~REV07~ AREVALOS or Troy E ? I went back to the Original Posting in early April of the, "P413 revisited" and you signed your post as Troy E. So which is it, Jekyll or Hyde ? ? ?

Discussion: Southwest Championships, Vegas

Thanks for the feedback guys! Yah Tim, we don't quite have the Softball Population like California. We have a few SSUSA Events throughout the year here in Arizona, and a couple Fun Tourney's up in the cool pines during the summer. Maybe if/when NSA has some Senior Events out here we will be able to play a few more 1-day Tourney's?! Arizona Elite was really looking forward to playing the 5-6 Major Plus Teams out West, but it sounds like a lot of what I mentioned above is starting to unfold. There are still several Good Major Teams to play, it just would have been nice to have 10+ combined Teams in an Upper Bracket!

I believe all of our Major Plus Teams should Collaborate our Schedules so we can maintain our competitive level of play with Maximum Participation. So-Cal & Vegas are much more Economic for our Travels from AZ, but that's not to say we can't mix in 1 or 2 Tourney's somewhere in the middle to get the Nor-Cal Teams as well as NW Legends in the mix. We dropped Mesquite & Reno from our Original Schedule, but I believe we're gonna play in Sac-Town?! Tim, you and I discussed Medford before, and I thought we determined that it isn't truly the ASA 50's World?! It's more of just a Senior Festival Tourney?!

More on the topic of Arizona Senior Softball, I personally would like to see a mix of Combo Tourney's with 40s and 50s. Again, we donít have the Population, but this would help Grow our Program(s) for the future, and allow us to maintain our own Competiveness in state! Nuff said, but let's try to keep a collective open line of communication so we can continue to Grow our Senior Program(s) on the West Coast . . .


Good Luck & Be Safe,

Discussion: Have read different rules for the pitchers would like for ssusa to explain all new rules.

donll,
It actually took me 2 years to give-in to using Senior Bats, just ask my Ole Buddy George Robinson, and former Coach Johnny da Hoser! I still use my Easton Synergy Bats every now-n-then, but I do feel like a Hypocrite at times. As the old saying goes, Don't take a Knife to a Gun Fight ? ! ? !

Mad Walter - you Old Fart,
I do Play by the Rules, but as a Smart Pitcher, I take Pride in Bending them now-n-then. It's especially Fun when other Teams Whine about it, and a certain Tournament Director (Insert Marv here) thinks he knows the Rules, but his UIC has to Correct him and tell him he is Wrong (LOL) ! ! !

Bottom Line is to have Fun, and I for one have Fun on both sides of the Ball! I also have yet to run into any SSUSA Staff and/or Umpires that have not had Fun during our Games - Win or Lose ! ! !

So Mad Dog,

You want Stricter Pitching Rules in a Senior Recreational Amateur Sport because a 60 year Old Fart (your Division) has an Advantage over your Wrinkled @$$ with your Stooopid Wonder Stick by taking a couple steps or "Walking the Box" to Toss you an Underhanded Cookie?!?!

Like I keep saying - just use a Friggen Tee! No more Apples to Oranges Comparisons - Tee it High, and let it Fly (LOL) ! ! !

Do you not realize how Silly/Bitchy/Whiny you Look/Sound? Have you ever watched Jeff Dunham the Ventriloquist? You guys remind me of his Dummy, Walter (LOL) ! ! !


All in Good Fun Fellas,
