Keith..,
You keep referring to 5 organisations. Who are they? I know of only (3-4) SSUSA, MARV'S, Nate (ASA) and Doug MSA/WSL both Doug and Nate only get the 40's teams NO 50+ AND UP.. and most of that is of course, the 40's in (part) refuses to play SSUSA, ONLY in Spring World's and Masters World's, those are on the radar of teams that I know of here in SoCal. So far, from what I've played on and seen.. It's Marv who puts on about 11+ tournaments a year and possibly are attended more than the others combined, but also had has his critics and I'm one of them... LOL!!, but I respect him for what he's doing so far, because he's the only game in town right now..

With all the $$$ that SSUSA makes, I would like to think that you guys would be the top notch Org. to rule Sr. Softball, by adding more dates here in SOCAL and up in NORCAL for teams to play in. I'm talking about the 50's, 55's, 60's and up... So far for July Marv has about..? (14+) teams signed up and I heard a couple from NORCAL.. I know last year Marv tried to his event listed as qualifiers.. not what has happened.. but I'm almost sure that any of Marv's dates would make good qualifiers/recreational events.

Is there politics going on here...? I hope you guys do not lose that July event, due to potential high heat index in Hemet... are you guys thinking of the players and umpires well being...? J/S... :)

Side note, I've also played in Reno to Vegas both the freezing cold to the high heat of Vegas... but we're much older and the body at our stages of life can only hold soooo much.. ;)

That's fine.. However... why would SSUSA purposely put the Cal Cup on the same weekend as the tournament in San Clemente? Isn't that normally done on the weekend after the 4th? The park says they could have had any weekend in July... all weekends were available. BTW... word is that no one rents these fields in July.., because the heat index is about 105 degrees.. that too hot for us old guys... :)

I have question for the the SSUSA STAFF.
How can you schedule an event in Escondido for May 1-6, one week after the LVSSA/SSUSA Event, but then have to cancel it?

Also, why isn't there enough SSUSA tournaments during the season in the SOCAL region? There are at least 100+ Sr. Teams from 40's-80's looking to play SSUSA. Plus plenty of quality fields to use. I'm sure many of these teams would not have a problem travelling to these events.

I'm sure this would also apply to the NORCAL and CENTRAL CA. areas. I don't get it..?

Discussion: "The One"

Guys.. what GIBBY59 is saying about the Demar "ONE" is legit, this bat has a very good Pop/Distance to it. I played with him and Ollie on DEMO and the ball was flying of this bat even with the 3" linear crack..

Discussion: NEW YORK AREA...

I'll be in visiting my hometown BROOKLYN to see family and old friends. Would BE nice to get picked up in a slowpitch league that let visitors play or better yet participate in several local BP sessions while I'm there. I'll be staying in Long Island (Kings Park area) from June 27th-July 7th.
thanks in advance...

I smell a rat in this new bat policy.. Why no Rebook, Worth and Monsta...? If they want to protect players.. then change the ball.. how about going to the U-trip HotDots... ?
