Discussion: Player rating

This is very interesting. How does a player that played in this years Worlds at 50-M, 60-M and 55-AA pull this off?
I just finished playing 55-M at Worlds but am 60. So I take it I am am classified as a 60-M player. As I see it, I am able to play any of the 50's or 55's divisions. Since they are less than 2 ratings index below

Does anyone know if Tucson is holding the Christmas Charity tourney this year? If so do you have a contact number. Love the new fields in Tucson.

Discussion: Worlds in Vegas

I want to give a special kudos and great job to the umpires that were at Arroyo Grande. We played 5 of our six games there and the umpiring was the most consistent I have seen at any tourney in 10 yrs of senior ball. These guys took charge of the field and no nonsense. They were outgoing and friendly but make no mistake they were in charge. Excellent job gentlemen.

Discussion: Nothing like Senior ball

I had the pleasure of playing in the 55 major division again at Worlds. Got to play against teams from Michigan, Indiana, New York and Rhode Island. Also played against Cal 50's for 3rd straight Vegas tourney. Great bunch of guys. The one bright side of the tourney is meeting people from all over the country. Originally, being from Boston it is always good to hear the east coast accents again. As much as I love softball and the competition. I truly enjoy meeting and talking to people from various parts of the country. This year was no exception. Hope everyone got home safely and healthy.

Discussion: Easton BSR Senior bat

I bought an Easton Elder and I don't like its performance to date. Have had the bat for about 4 mths. Put about 100 bp cuts on it and it still eels stiff with zero pop compared to my Dirty, U2 white and gray 2-piece. Heck it doesn't even compare to my Utrip Easton 2013 L2, 2014 L2 or Salvo Comp 100. Gave up on it a couple of mths ago. Looking to sell if anyone is interested.

Discussion: WHO ARE CURRENTLY THE MOST POWERFUL HITTERS IN SENIOR SOFTBALL

First, I would like to welcome the Cansecos to senior ball. With that said it appears you are trying to make this game about you. Senior softball welcomes all comers at all levels of play and we are all equal. I don't mean equal in talent or ability. I mean equal in the sense, that we are all players that love the game of baseball/softball. In my 10 years of senior softball playing AA, AAA and Majors. I can honestly say, the players I meet from all over the country have been awesome. There are many gifted athletes and those that may not be as gifted. There are those that hit the weights to maintain a high level of competitiveness on the field. There are those that hit the beers to maintain a high level of competitiveness off the field. Either way everyone plays with all their heart and soul and leave everything out on the field.
The game is bigger than any one person and will survive long after we are all in that great softball field in the sky.
My advise to the Canseco brothers. This isn't the MLB. We have egos but understand we also have limitations do to our age and physical issues over the years. We play hurt, we play hard and for the love of the game not the love of the all mighty dollar. We love our families and our teammates. Well, maybe not always all our teammates, lol. We thank God or whomever people believe in, that we survived another tourney without serious injury or even death. You will learn to love the game again for the reasons you first started playing. Before being corrupted by the contracts and glamour. You will learn you can be competitive and go balls out on the field to win without being a jerk. You will shake hands after games, say good game and mean it.
Again, welcome to the game we all love and please do your best to be a positive addition to our family.

Discussion: Prayers for NM players' family

It has just come to my attention that a player from one of our local NM teams passed away during this past weekends Worlds. His name was Donny Martinez and he was pitching for the 55AA Diamond Cats out of Las Cruces/Deming NM. He suffered a heart attack and passed away at the hospital in Las Vegas.
Our prayers and Gods Blessings to his family.

Discussion: A thanks

Ron, that throw to third was sick. I told the team didn't you guys pay attention when he almost threw me out at second. I play with the Rio Grande 55's leftfield. I hit a ball off the RF wall and was cruising into second, until I saw the SS get into position for a throw. I decided, I better haul butt and had to slide into second to make it safely. I looked at your SS and said "What a frigin throw, that man has a cannon." He calmly responded 'yea, not bad' with a big grin on his face.
Hope to see you guys again at future tourneys Your a Class Act.

Amen to that Happy New Year to all. Enjoy the game no matter what the rule changes are. Besides the love of my wife, children and grandchildren this game brings me joy. Nothing like being on a baseball/softball field. We are blessed to play the game.

Webbie: You seem to be doing well. Now that the Major plus division has DBO after you use up your HR's. You might as well join us in the 55 Major division. lol
I actually enjoy watching a guy 150 lbs to 200 lbs hitting the ball 300 plus, than guys well over 200 lbs. Guys that big should hit it a ton. They don't even have to workout as hard as us little guys. We need as much muscle and have to swing out our butts to get it out. We definitely can't rely on a few extra pounds.

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

Here we go again. Fellas their is no law or rule that says you have to swing a senior bat in senior ball. Bring your aluminum bats and swing them as you please.

Turbo are you kidding me you would be "inclined to retaliate". What are we 18 again. I play plenty of utrip still and when I here kids yell middles open it pisses me off. Utrip has a rule now if they hear a team say that the player is to be thrown out the game. In whatever league I play in if I hit pass the pitcher I apologize when I get to base. If I hit a pitcher I have actually not run and walked up to the pitcher to make sure they are alright. My teammates often get upset but i don't care. The health of a person is more important than my getting on base. Pitchers do need to take steps to protect themselves. There is plenty of lightweight safety equipment that can be worn.
At our age anyone that would purposely try to hurt a fellow player either by hittng up the middle or sliding at a player late or out of the base path is a punk.
I have an ego but not enough to hurt someone. I also have a young wife and trust me. My ego in the bedroom is far more important than on the field. If I needed viagra the senior bat would go first. lol
HAPPY NEW YEAR

Turbo 34 I don't understand your decision based on using a senior bat. You do have the option of swinging a nonsenior bat. If you are that concerned about hurting someone and can hit HR's w/o a senior bat then why use one. If it is the HR rule you are more concerned with then that is good reason. But, you do sound hypocritical blaming the HR rule and the use of a senior bat. You do have control of that aspect of the issue. JMO Merry Christmas

If some big hitters guys feel strongly enough about the use of senior bats. May I recommend they set the example and use USSSA or ASA bats. Prove to your counterparts that you are a better man by hitting bombs with a supposedly lesser bat. I have actually done this in league. I would hit bombs with my USSSA bats and tell guys "I don't need no stinkin senior bat" lol

Discussion: Why only one Rec. tourney.

I was wondering why there is one one recreational tourney listed. My buddies and I love these tourneys to get our league team together since we are aged 50 to 60 AA to major. we also use them for our tourney team to get ready for a TOC.

I am 5'11" 170lbs. I have hit HR's in USSSA and senior ball with USSSA bats. I hit them with my senior bats. I don't see much difference personally and i'm a little guy. I get about a year or more out of my senior bats. I had an OG Snake for 4 years before it died. I have also found some extremely hot USSSA bats such as the OG Freak and the Rawlings Rush 120 that I ahve usd in senior play. For the life of me i can't understand why guys weighing 200 plus lbs at any height need a senior bat. Then bitch about them breaking and having to buy several per year. The USSSA bats come with a year warranty except Easton now goes 6 mths. I can undersatnd guys my size drooling over the senior bats. I have seen smaller guys I know hitting bombs in seniors and playing USSSA and having WTP.
