Pitcher55 - Nice to me? I think not!!! I took offense to your last comment to me. Perhaps you should re read it. What? you think your the only guy alone, exclusive to your post reference 1,2 & 3? You don't know me, nothing about me and yet your comment as many here are prejudging me. You call that fair? I don't! Did I go bashing anyone here that either poked fun at me or like you, calling me names (A-Hole)..NO! Self Centered me? Not at all! Go back and read what others are saying to me that don't know me, or anything about me but yet they post as though I was born yesterday regarding this game. You just couldn't wait to join them all couldn't you?. The comment I made in my last post regarding bats was copied and pasted from the message board here, didn't you get that? I'm fully aware of and own myself a Reebock Melee Legend bat 1.21BPF. Maxload. And by the way, my first and original post was not for local play, for out of state tournament play February or March. Like many here you just read past that part. Go back and re read it. I'm just a regular guy, a pitcher looking to play the game I know and love. You got a problem with that tell it to the hand!

Pull- re canjack, When we get into regular season game play. Full teams with umpires sure why not. I will have someone take a video of me pitching and post it to youtube. You can easily do that with most camera phones today and post vids seconds later.

Omar - With hitting you work the count, same goes for pitching, working different ball heights in or out, deep or short etc. I'm sure premier pitchers in SSUSA know exactly what I'm talking about. Another thing, I never pitched on teams with unlimited arc, always 6' to 12". Yes I have seen umps of all ages calling the 11' or 12' pitch illegal many times. You learn or know how to adjust. And I'll have to adjust to looking behind myself before the first pitch is thrown of any inning...not seeing guys under 35 on the field.

The 1.20 BPF standard is used by the ASA, USSSA, NSA, ISF and other associations. The BBS is highest in ASA.

Pitcher55 - so you started playing when you were 5? And when was the last time you played with 20/30 year olds three decades ago? Hottest bats? you call single wall hottest bats? How about facing guys that are in the prime of their lives swinging bats you can't use in SSUSA play. ASA set the maximum BBS value, effective January 2004, to be 98-mph. SSUSA see forum Discussion: Hit today a 275 by 52 ball. See also SSUSA softball specs.

If you haven't noticed posted by SSUSA Staff Jan 15 - The official allowed pitching arc for SSUSA sanctioned events is 6' to 12'. SSUSA has not adopted a 10' arc, as other associations may have done.

BudLeftField - Like I said, Senior Softball is completely new for me. I'm unfamiliar with all these senior teams and last years standings. Last season one of the elder ASA umpires that I've gotten to know over the years made mention to me about the Senior Softball leagues knowing I was soon to turn 60. And since I live in TOB he told me about the Tobay Tigers. He called me before Xmas and gave me a name and # to call. Is there a TOB Div1 team I should know about?

In years past Teams I played on included Gulfhaven, The Crushers, Hard knocks and Slackers to name a few you may have heard of. Senior softball will be a first for me in 2013 as it looks now Tobay Tigers Senior Softball will be the team I'll be pitching for. I don't know any of these guys having played all my life up til 2012 with younger softball players mostly mid 20's to early 30's in ages. Does it make them any better than mature players, in some cases (teams) yes. But not in all. You guys all know the drill, it's how you prepare and approach the game. So what's in an age besides respect?

rightrj1 - 99% of pitchers do pitch under hand thereby "presenting the ball" if you will...of which allows hitters to easily follow the ball from that kind/type of delivery.
NOT ME! I know of no one that delivers the ball the way I do.
Totally ASA legal, flipped up from low on the thigh with a rapid spin! Up the middle? LOL Very rare no matter who's at bat. More like a weak ground out or high pop to middle infield nearly every time. Step up to the plate anytime, I'll be happy to take that 401K of ya. Ready when you are!

righrj1 - Not to me its not a hitters game! If you run down any lineup as I do, you'll understand, and I's sure you know why every hitter is put 1 through 10 for example in a batting order. Who is the patient hitter that gets on base..Lead off. The comes the guys that are supposed to get on base or move runners up. Next up... and I really love these guys cause their all free swinging hitters 4,5 and even 6. Why? DO you think they want go home and tell their wives or girlfriends they walked today or hit the ball out of the park?
With all my years of experience, and like most of the better pitchers out there today we have all their numbers & pitch by Pitch we prove it all the time! The lineup is the same, just the faces are different.

Discussion: Safely increasing your Testosterone Levels

Zinc is very important for the production of natural testosterone. Foods high in Zinc include oysters (a natural aphrodisiac), liver, seafood, poultry, nuts & seeds...It's all one food groups. Or you can supplement with at least 50-to-100mg of Zinc daily. Research has shown that men who ate diets rich in healthy fats like monounsaturated fats & Omega-3 fats had the highest testosterone levels.

So yes it's all about eating healthy. You know the old saying, "You are what you eat"

Discussion: Safely increasing your Testosterone Levels

Once you eliminate all the "Chemicals" found in everything processed foods...and then some, you will feel like your young again...and your wife or GF will also notice the difference if you know what I mean. Try it for two weeks. It's easy to shop for and simple to prepare everything from "One food groups" Food/eating is a business for the makers of food products. They put more money into the design of packaging than the content inside besides the chemicals. I developed a saying once I started eating healthier, one food groups. "I'm not eating someones science project" You, your family shouldn't either! By the way, butter, eggs even most cheeses fall into the one food group. I'll say it again, nothing processed!

Discussion: Safely increasing your Testosterone Levels

Some years ago I was introduced to a healthier way of life, eating by a nutritionist friend. He calls it "The One Food Diet" Now let me explain it to you.
Fish is one food as well as chicken, turkey, red meat & pork.
All the fresh vegetables are also one food groups.
NOTHING PROCESSED.
A typical..lets say Monday night meal would include a portion of baked white meat chicken, a baked potato and steamed green vegetable of your choice. Green beans, Broccoli, spinach, carrots even a little pasta make for a great addition to the veges group with any meal. (learn to balance everything)

It's like eating pre 1960's. Like our grandparents ate. Back then our grand parents would go to the market daily and pick from everything fresh for meal time. Combining one from each of the food groups. That's how it was back then, everything fell into "One Food Groups". All the spices are OK, just watch the salt. ( I don't shake, pepper I do, not salt")
you can be creative with how you cook or prepare your meals. Just keep away from all things processed.

Eat well, live longer

Discussion: Tournment Pitcher from NY looking to join a team

I just turned 60 in October. I've been playing ASA softball actively for the past 35+ years, never stopped playing softball with 20, 30 & 40 year old league division one or "A" ball players. Winner of multiple championships throughout the 90's and 2000's.

I'm well known throughout Long island as a premier high arc softball pitcher and an accomplished power hitter. My delivery is very different than most softball pitchers. I learned years ago to deliver the ball with a spin from my right thigh making turning my wrist making it very hard to pick up the ball after release. When I move my index finger to the side of the ball, it comes down on an angle jamming the batters and many times striking them out.

I recently joined a local LISSA team age 60 and older. When I told my 32 year old son and a great softball team mate/player that I joined the senior leagues his comment to me was "Dad, 20'25 year old's can't hit you, what will those geriatrics do facing you" Funny for him but I've been around this game a long time. I Never underestimate anyone, regardless of age. I replied to my son by saying more than likely, senior players have never stopped playing the game, just like me. I would expect more talent from them than you kiddies!

With that said if you can field talented players, combining me on the mound the combination will win tournaments.

You should also know that we, this senior 60's league began practicing indoors a week ago. I pitched twelve innings of one run softball.
