Discussion: Cure for AAA after 3rd HR!

Please no more changes to the game. Here's a cure for AAA HR rule. Don't hit more than 3. If you or your team can move the hell up.

Discussion: Out after 3 Home Runs

Now I see how you got the name Big Cat. lol It's quite a delemna. In our league of 18 senior teams. We have enough talent to make a major team. But it appears most of the guys prefer AAA. I know some of them are very capable to play major and even major plus. but, as Webbie and you have stated what do you do when the opportunities do not present themselves. My options has been play with the kids, play with my buddies or not play at all.

Webbie: I hear ya. If I happen to walk my teammates start making comments like. "I thought Tony was at bat, who is that guy taking a walk." lol I was in Rio Rancho for Christmas visiting my daughters and grandkids. Froze my butt off. I have definitely acclamated myself to southern NM. We are still playing our league. You should come down some weekend get some cuts before Tucson. League plays Sat. the 12th and 19th in the NE complex on McCombs in El Paso. Games start at 9am it might be to hot for you temp will be in the 40's. :)

Discussion: Out after 3 Home Runs

This is what the 3rd thread on this topic. Sandbagging teams and players and hitting up the middle, when HR's are used up. big cat7: I do agree that rules should be different based on age and level. The 50's AA, AAA, Major and Major plus shouls have different HR rules. The 60's should also be different than 70's. Since it is tough to find Major and Major Plus teams to play on for some people. This is a good way for older players to play down and stay competitive.
Some of us still play with the oung guys for that competitive rush. Seniors is enjoyable because of the lack of BS and trash talking involved.
The bottom line and reality in all this discussion is. Guys are going to play SSUSA no matter what the rules are. It is nice to have these and other discussions but does it really matter.
One question is "What criteria is used to judge a player is a sandbagger".

Happy New Year

Discussion: New Years Resolutions

First I would like to say Happy New year and may God bless and protect all my senior brothers in the upcoming year and beyond. We all know it is that time of year ro make resolutions whether we are going to stick to them or not. lol
The one thing I would like to do is to go to more senior tourneys this year and enjoy the company of my fellow seniors. Maybe, meet, have a beer and talk with guys from this board. Put a face to the name. Continue to tell my wife everyday that I love her. Not sweat the little things and enjoy what God has given me. A loving wife, great kids and grandkids, awesome friends and good health.

Discussion: Carl's Corner Story

I'm sure by now most of you have read the story Carl Gustafson wrote on being an Outfielder and courtesy runner. I personally can feel his pain. I have been in his shoes since entering senior ball 9 years ago. I have mentioned on this site and in discussions with players. How my game suffers for the team. I have also been pissed when EH's that leadoff and bat 800 get All-Tourney recognition for getting on base and having someone else that is playing defense run for them. Another problem I have is how players like us are practically crawl off the field at the end of the day and these guys have not one ache or pain. Nice letter Carl, thanks for bringing this to light.

Discussion: AAA Home Run Outs

The equipment has progressed and we must progress with it. I like the new equipment because it makes the game livelier. I personally like the composite bats not only for the way I hit, but also for the way they allow for tons of action in the OF. I keep myself in shape, so I can stay on top of my game with the equipment.

I have not played the game as long as many of the players on the board. So I cannot relate to softball in the 70' and 80's. I have never played baseball with anything but a wooden bat, even in the 90's. But, I probably would have enjoyed the metal bats.

Expense and durability are a key for me as well. My son played with metal in high school and leagues. They then went to wood and i would up paying more having to replace wood bats. Sort of like using senior bats over USSSA or ASA bats.

As I have stated earlier senior bats are unnecessary with the technology in all bats. That is one of the changes I would make. As for my game changing with wood or aluminum. i am still plenty fast enough so my game wouldn't be affected like the big guys that depend solely on power.
