Discussion: How about a discussion on ow we think dbos will effect our games? And our assumptions why.

The truth about the Patty Mac & Bruce Fairchild combo team is they would be hard to beat in the AA, AAA, Major or Major +. They can both basehit, hit bombs and, even though they both play the sloth position (1B), they can pick it.

Discussion: Time to eliminate senior bats

Just wondering, how many of you guys that want to ban senior bats swing them in tournament?

All of you, just what I thought.

Why don't you guys start the movement and swing only ASA or U-trip bats. If you are going to talk the talk how about walking the walk.

Discussion: players please respond to rule changes

Some of you guys act like everybody can hit HRs at will.

In Las Vegas in the 50 Major + division, hitting rock balls with no DBO and great conditions the scores were:

Winners bracket finals 24-20

Losers bracket finals 17-16

Championship. 33-10

Considering these were the best 50 year olds in the game don't these scores seem very reasonable. The way some of you talk with no DBO the scores should have been 100-99.

Just because you can't hit HRs don't penalize the folks that can.

Discussion: players please respond to rule changes

The DBO and mandatory gear for pitchers has stirred more traffic on this site than anything since the bat/ball debates that got so heated Einstein, Dirty and others were eventually banned from this site.

Why can't the SSUSA step up, spend the time and money and do a survey addressing all the issues mentioned above.

All players would have to live with the survey results. Of course the players have to live with the SSUSA's committees results or not play in SSUSA tournaments, which isn't good for anyone.

May GOD Bless the Macenko family in this most trying time.

Hopefully the softball community will unite in sending many prayers up for a full recovery.

Tim

Your idea to vote/poll the players is a great idea, even if you were being cynical. Tater 50 and many others have been asking for this for years.

Do you think the players should be polled periodically and changes made accordingly or are you ok with the SSUSA board of 11 making the decisions?

We obviously view the game differently and I respect your opinion even though I don't agree. You and I are only two of the thousands that spend our time and money to play softball.

The ideal solution is to poll the players and let the majority rule. If DBO wins out great. Many players feel the DBO only promotes speeding up the game and penalizes players that hit HRs. Maybe you are right and maybe not. Let the players decide.

Sorry, but if you think you could charge admission to see two Major + teams play a 13-12 game I think you are delusional.

DBO or not 13-12 isn't what a Major + score should be. If that's the case I guess a good AAA game would be 5-4.

Aren't you the guy who said if you can't basehit the ball you shoukd take up knitting? Sounds like there was more knitting than hitting in the game you could charge admission to.

No disrespect to either team and I bet they would both agree they didn't hit the ball that particular game.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: What's the best bat for open tournaments?

There are a lot of great bats out right now, however if you look in the dugouts you will see more Ultra's than anything else.

I am not representing any bat company, which some on here are doing,
just stating what I see.

Discussion: HR rule - why????

Tim, the infamous TM50 on the Old Scout, come on bro no top level player such as yourself can really want to hit a mush ball. If you want to grow the Major + level hitting a mush ball is definitely a step in the wrong direction.

Patty Mac, keep being the voice of reason. For those who have implied Pat needs to take up knitting, is a POS, can't hit the ball down, etc. etc. etc. you are way off base.

Patty Mac has been a top level player for 35+ years and only wants what is best for the game. Guys who work out, take BP and continually work on getting better should be rewarded for their hard work.

Patty Mac

Go to the thread "SSUSA Committee Meeting" and click on "minutes." The committee members are listed there.

DBO has a place in the AA/AAA divisions and I believe the majority of players that play in these divisions would agree.

I also feel the DBO doesn't belong in the Major and + divisions.

Why not let the players vote? At the first five or so tournaments when
checking in poll them on the DBO rule. Simply tabulate the vote, post the results and give the majority what they want.

An easy way to listen to the players.

Discussion: Miken Senior Bat Review- shich is the best bat of the 3?

I have had all three models.

The Black U-2 is a really good performance bat with questionable durability. If you get 200 swings you have done well.

I currently have both 2 piece bats, a 28 oz balanced and a 27 oz Maxload. My preference for distance is the Maxload.

I totally disagree with Dave V, even though I watch many of his videos, the two piece Maxload out performs and is more durable than the red U-2 in my opinion/experience.

Discussion: finding results of tournies

The USSSA posts results the same day for their tournaments. The D/E worlds often have more than 100 teams. It can be done if the organization wants to put forth the effort. That being said, the USSSA may have a much larger staff than SSUSA or have a person dedicated to updating the brackets.

Thanks for the info. Sounds like Adiktiv has a tough road ahead. They definitely have the team that can make a run.

Glad to see you are recovering and getting ready to play. Hope to see you soon.

Discussion: Las Vegas Fields and Umpires

Our team, the Georgia-Alabama Masters, played 2 games at Doc Romeos and 7 games at Big League Dreams.

The wind Friday at Doc Romeos was brutal, however everyone obviously played in the same conditions. The fields were really nice and the umpires did a good job.

Big League Dreams was GREAT.

Our great sponsor, who led the Ga-Ala Masters for 13 years, decided this would be our last tournament. This was a very emotional weekend for our team and it's hard to believe we'll never take the field again as the Georgia-Alabama Masters.

Discussion: Eastern National Championships 2013 updates

We had the same situation in Gadsden a couple weeks ago. The ball was horrible. It seems the guys that just poke it around don't mind hitting socks while guys that hit it hard prefer hitting a good ball.

I bet if all the organizations went to hit your own ball you wouldn't see many socks being hit.

RTM, when teams like Hollis hit four HRs in five games your statement about the guys that should be hitting HRs were hitting them is definitely not correct.

Discussion: Prayers for Mickey Hardin Family

So sorry to hear about Mickey.
He was such a nice man. He will be missed by many.

The thing I remember most was he was such a quite humble man.

As the Bible states "he who humbles himself will be exalted"
Mickey is being exalted today in Heaven.

May God bless him family in these most trying times.
