Discussion: Springfield Silverbacks looking for player. 55+AAA

A big thanks to KC Jim for dishing out a ton of money for fees and uniforms. A big thanks for putting together what potentially could have been a team with a ring or two. 6-2 in the first 8 games was a cool start while getting to know all. One of the best teams I've played with as far as what we could have accomplished together. Love you Iowa guys big time as you were all multi-talented and fun to play with. To do what you did to the Silverbacks and Jim was wrong as now 9 players are shot in the foot. We all have turned away several offers from great teams and now go in search of again. You guys are good but you should have decided beforehand you wanted to stay home and play. You are great and I had a blast but you should send Jim an apology and check for all he has done since January for our now X-team. It shouldn't be a problem for all those guys to find another team but that should not have to be taking place during the season. We will always be friends even after the pooping. I enjoyed my two 11 hour one-way drives to play with you guys twice. I was so looking forward to bringing my son to Omaha to meet you guys after describing our team to him. BTW we beat the #1 team in the state last night 2-1. Good luck in Iowa and always remember that UK rules the basketball roost....well runner-up anyway.....E

Discussion: How do you get fit?

I've been a PE teacher for 25 years and been in shape most of my 57 years. For the past three years I have taught three high school classes of P90X and it is a great workout by doing one of the 12 sets daily. High intensity workouts are great. Another great workout in which you can adapt to your favorite training is called TABATA training. Basically it's 20 seconds high intensity training then 10 seconds rest for 4 minutes or 8 intervals. High intensity boost your metabolism and heart rate in a matter of seconds. TABATA is a form of high intensity interval training methods that offers more health benefits than traditional cardiovascular exercises like jogging. It's short, efficient and can fit in almost any of your fitness programs. Here are a few of the things I do. A great warm-up tabata is 20 seconds jumping jacks then rest 10 seconds. Squat thrust 20 seconds then rest 10 seconds. 20 seconds high knees landing lightly then rest 10 seconds. Then modified push-ups 20 seconds then rest 10 seconds. If you feel the need repeat these and slightly increase the reps. Next do TI push-ups with 25 lb dumbbells raising only the right arm 25 lb dumbbell. Rest 10 seconds. Next do the same TI pushups raising the left arm 25 lb dumbbell then rest 10 seconds. Next take the 25 lb weight, or what ever weight you feel comfortable with, and raise to the right shoulder and do squats for 20 seconds. Don't bring your butt below your knees as it puts to much stress on the knees. Rest 10 seconds. Then switch the weight to the left shoulder and do squats for 20 seconds and rest for 10. 2 minutes are gone and you will already feel this but you next repeat that set in order to get the 4 minute TABATA completed. Also you can get on a pull up bar and pull up to the top and stop. Then you raise your knees to your waist for 20 seconds up and down then rest 10. Next for 20 seconds do a lighter bench press press of 80lb or so then rest 10. 20 seconds high knees in place then rest 10. Then 20 seconds with 25lb dumbbell alternative style curls both right and left then rest 10 seconds. 20 seconds jump-ups on elevated bench then rest 10. Next 45lb free weight and hold in front of chest pushing it out then into the chest while standing for 20 seconds then rest 10. Then side jump over short bench or even just a towel on the ground back and forth for 20 seconds then rest 10. Trust me you will get the workout from workouts in a short period of time. You can do whatever type of workout you like with what ever weight on this program and you will get fit. I like doing a TABATA workout with jump rope switching from right to left leg. There are numerous things you can do. I also do tabata with a rubber tube attached to a softball sized wiffle ball and throw for 20 seconds alternating left and right. Then with a drilled out wiffleball bat. High intensity interval training will burn more fat as you increase the heart rate faster. People with heart problems or high blood pressure should consult a doctor first before doing this type of workout. Google TABATA training and you will get many ideas on what to attempt and it will educate you on this high intensity interval workout. Trust me its four minutes of intense workout that you can increase to 8 or what ever you wish. Didn't mean to ramble on about this but just thought you may enjoy giving it a try and if you can't decipher what I wrote google tabata. BTW a good diet will be beneficial to your training also..............2424 Hope to see you all on the softball field if we ever get rid of this polar vortex crap.

Topic: Tournaments
Discussion: finding results of tournies

Great responses and didn't mean to sound rude. However, I have ran tournaments with over 150 involved and had results out by supper. I, not a computer junkie, had friends who are and they knocked it out easily. As Rabbit stated in today's day and time this is easily accomplished with laptops or even phones. As each team gives the scores to the over worked directors they record them on line and push one button and they are out for the world to see. Golf tournies do this, disc golf tournies do this as well as AAU baseball and basketball tournies do. In a DG tourney with 180 players scores are out before lunch is over after the first round. In softball write the score and click the button. I know it is a hassell for dirctors with all the work of maintaining fields, umps, players, concessions and the such but there are programs on line to do this. Several players did not get to make certain tournies and only wish not to wait two weeks for results. Sorry but there are easy answers to posting results and I do feel for all the work those directors do at their tables. They do not get the praise they should. The directors at the many tournies we played in were overworked and under paid and always scholars and gentlemen.

Seems like SSUSA would love to post tournament results to keep all of us unfortunate players who did not get to go informed. Thanks to the guys who posted the winners of the TOC in Ft. Meyers. It would be nice to see who did what in each game. Maybe I am overlooking the results and if so please show me the way to find them.
