Discussion: SSUSA shares DBO rationale Senior

That was with Worth PST and ESTs. The other team asked the ump with could go one more inning to see if we could get 100. It was the Championship game 80-29. If it wasn't fun the other team wouldn't have wanted to see 100. The ump said no even though it was only 2:30. They even told him they wouldn't bat in the bottom. That ump was a kill joy just like players that want DBO.

Scored 80 in three innings. Had 34 runs in the first inning. Was 4-4 with 4 in one inning. Ended up 10-10 with seven. It was the SEAA One Pitch State.

Discussion: SSUSA shares DBO rationale Senior

Dolfan hits BOMBS! He likes DBO. Has he ever seen a player face down in the dirt in a pool of his own blood? What do you call a bomb Dolfan? Do you play major or major plus? Did you play in Vegas? Just wondering because I've never played with a big time bomb dropper that wants DBO's! Have you ever played in the Smoky Mountain Classic? Most the BOMB droppers I know played in the Grand Daddy of all tournaments. If SSUSA wanted to speed up the game they should have let teams play ELEVEN on defense. With balls over the fence after the limit a walk/ single that would greatly increase the double plays. Hey Dolfan, has the opposing pitcher ever intentionally walked you after the limit was up in DBO because they were afraid you might accidentally hit them?

Discussion: All the hate on DBO with senior bats...how about this?

Why not let dudes swing aluminum and their home runs don't count toward the teams total. All aluminum bat homers would always count as home runs. I would be ok with it. Bring back the blue EST baby!!!

Discussion: Time to eliminate senior bats

Now that's exactly what I'm talking about, you would take care of it on a personal level in the parking lot. Two years of senior ball and have had nothing but great competition and fellowship, but now I'm telling you it will change. Have any of you ever injured another player? We'll I have and I don't ever want to be part of that again on either side. We were playing in a C tournament a couple of years ago and were out of home runs when I step in the box the other teams third basemen starts running his mouth saying, " What can you do we no home runs big man?" Because I bat left handed he never expected the ball to be hit at him. It hit him square in the forehead. He never raised his glove. He had to have 17 stitches and stay over night in the hospital with a concussion. This happened in an ASA tournament, if it had been a senior bat I really don't believe he would have lived. Until you have this happen to you and you have to live with the consequences you just don't understand.

Discussion: Teams leaving SSUSA?

Paco and PattyMac

I really enjoyed battling Adiktiv last year. I will probably boycott SSUSA this year. I know with the new rule they're going to be middle wars every weekend and I want no part of seeing dudes carried off on stretchers. Hope you do well in M+.

The bat has nothing to do with me not playing SSUSA it's the fact that when teams start hitting the middle at my pitcher I will be inclined to retaliate. I realize that every softball player has a massive ego and saying I will do this or I will do that probably doesn't carry much weight on a board like this so I will just leave it like I said earlier I don't want to play with the new rules.

What this new rule means to me is no more SSUSA softball tournaments! I'm not going to drive four plus hours to play in tournaments where I have to worry every time I bat I might hurt someone. That may sound like I have an elevated opinion of myself but it's just not going to happen. I played with Monster last year and had a blast playing against great competition like PattyMac and D12 and many other great players but I'm not going on the field to injure anyone with a senior bat. I'm one of the lucky old dudes that still gets plenty of offers to play on really competitive young teams that play all their games within an hour or two of home. Why would I want to play by C division rules (home runs outs) in senior ball with a lightning rod in my hand? I'm extremely disappointed in the SSUSA rules committee. Players reading this may think I'm on an ego trip, but if you ever played against me you know you don't ever want to see me hitting the middle with a senior best. There will be to many times that you have to go to the plate in non home run at bats that infielders are in jeopardy. Sorry if I sound like a senior bat hero but in our local senior league we have to swing ASA bats and hit .375 balls and it's never an out and it's no problem to hit two or three a game. Been a blast but it's not worth it any more.

Discussion: The Rock balls

PattyMac, the way you were hitting in Mobile it wouldn't have mattered if you were hitting rolled up tube socks we still wouldn't have got you out! I can't image the Rock going any better than those Stote balls. Would definitely be fun to hit them!
