Discussion: Teams in the South: Food for thought

Hey Southpaw, I'm sure the Southern Hurricanes would be interested in playing. Just keep us in mind.

Home Plate, I have no doubt that you are right about those guys. However, there aren't a lot of "those" guys walking around. If you read what I posted, I agreed that there were a few guys that could do that, just not 100's.

If you don't think the composite bats have made softball a different animal, you are kidding yourself. "Back in the day" you knew who the guys were that had Home Run potential. These days any 130 lb kid can yank the ball out of the park every time he steps up. I would like to see "100's" of senior softball players that could hit home runs in a 300 foot park with a wooden bat. There may be a few, but not hundreds. Doesn't take away from any HOF guys. They got there because they are the best at what they do. They play the same game that everybody else plays, just do it better.

Rain, rain and more rain. The AAA division didn't get to finish. Had the misfortune (LOL!) of playing the 2 Major plus teams for our pool games. Lucky us, we're a AAA team. Both Adiktiv and TSC swing the bat extremely well. TSC cut them, 31-11 in a game that I saw. When we left in the rain, they were playing again with a very close game. I think Doc C's and not sure who were playing when we left on the Major side as well.

I agree BruceinGa. It's also a sign of people not taking care of infields like they should. I've seen some nice complexes with terrace row infields. With the bats being used in this day and age, no one in the infield should be comfortable.

Discussion: pitching rules

I'm not a pitcher, have great respect for the guys that will stand that close to a hitter. I'm not gonna do it. In reading your post, modi, the main point you seem to make is separating true home run hitters from pretenders. While I totally agree with you that the balls and bats used today give everyone home run power, I don't think changing the ball is going to get the ball away from the pitcher. Moreover, if a guy can't hit it out of the park, maybe there's now a greater chance of hitting back at the pitcher.

Discussion: Southpaw's Birmingham tourney

Thoroughly enjoyed the tournament this past weekend. Everyone was as expected in Senior tournaments, very respectful and appreciative of other teams. Southpaw, we (Southern Hurricanes) don't have anything on the schedule for April, so I'm sure we would play in an April tournament. Thanks again for having us.

Discussion: STILL PLENTY OF TIME: Southpaw's warm-up Tourney in Bham, Alabama

Hey Southpaw, weather is looking great for your tournament. Hard to believe as cold as it was this morning, that in 2 days it will be close to 70 degrees. I'll definately take it.

Discussion: What about the new Boombah Sr. BOSS bat???

We have a couple of guys that have them. They and a couple of our other guys used them this weekend in practice games and raved about them. The ball seems to really jump off the bat.

Southpaw, is this a nonsanctioned tournament? Meaning, we don't have to have SSUSA cards yet, just be of age?
