Discussion: Tanel R.A.G.E, Bat Bag Question

I bought a bag-cover from REI for $20 which is designed to protect and secure the bat bag. It works okay and the Tanel bag fits into it. The bag-cover folds into a very small package and can be put into the bat bag when not flying.

Discussion: Major+ Equalizer - What do you think?

IMO, one cause of too few teams in the Major+ division: Teams disband, reorganize, or stop going to big tournaments because they believe they have no chance versus the previous year's World's Champion. This is unique in Major+ divisions because the winners of the Worlds don't "move up."

How about instituting a 5-run equalizer for one year to those M+ teams that didn't win the Worlds. So all M+ winners of the 2009 Worlds in Phoenix would have to play with a 5-run deficit, but for only one year (unless it again wins in 2010). This might get more M+ teams to participate.

What do you think?

Discussion: Combine Major & Major+?

To solve the problem of too few teams in the M/M+ divisions, many on this message board have recommended combining M/M+ into one division.

I suspect most recommendations are from Major+ teams/players. Are there any Major teams interested in idea?

Discussion: Its Unanimous - The Best Senior Softball Players Are in California and Florida

FYI. I looked at the top 2 Major+ teams at the SS USA Worlds for the past 5 years for the 50s, 55s, 60s, 65s, 70s. (A total of 50 Champions and Runner ups) Here's where they came from:

Cal 25 (50%)
Fl 5 (10%) (very few play in Worlds)
CO 2 (4%)
No other state had more than one team

Topic: Tournaments
Discussion: TOC

Because Las Vegas and Ft Myers are played after the Worlds (2009), they are considered the first tournaments of the following year (2010). It would be obvious if they were played in January 2010, but the weather in Vegas won't allow it.

Then, since they are for the following year (2010), teams are permitted to pick-up players who are too young this year (2009), but will turn to the next age bracket the following year (2010).

It would be unfair if the winners of these tournaments were permitted to play in the TOC because they won with younger players.

Another point: many teams use Vegas/Ft Myers as tryouts for new players who might join the team in 2010.

Questions?

Discussion: Maury Wilson

Maury Wills collapsed on Tuesday AM after a double header at Delta Park. A few players, including Dr. Leon Speroff, fought valiantly to revive Maury, but his heart was not beating and he wasn't breathing. The Fire Department and EMT arrived about 15 minutes after Maury's collapse and revived him with a full-court press of activities, including using a defibrillator. Although still unconscious, Maury's heart was beating and he was breathing on his own.

As of today (Thursday PM), Maury is still hanging in there. His heart beat and blood pressure are steady and the doctors have taken him off sedatives. When he regains consciousness, the doctors will evaluate him for neurological damages.

Maury, who is truly one of the good guys of senior softball, lives in Vancouver, Washington and plays for the NW 80s.

Stay with us, Maury!

What is the origin of "muffed?"
The outfielder "muffed" the fly ball.

Can you guess without the internet?

Discussion: Worth 510 Launch - Old or New?

I hit with a red Worth 510 yesterday and it definitely had less pop than the gold version. Maybe it's just the batch from China?

I'm a singles hitter and use a 27 oz. bat. I agree that the Worth hits about the same as the Ultra II. I could only find a 26 oz gold Worth and bought it for $139. I'm hopeful, but worried.

How does the new red/maroon Worth 510 Launch compare with the "old" yellow/gold version?

Any objective reviews on the internet?

Discussion: Prostate Issues

Ed Andrews,

I had my prostate out two years with a robot and started playing 5 weeks after that. I'm 70 years old and still playing over 200 games a year.

I wrote a report on my experience and I'll send a copy to your email. It's informative and funny from a senior player's point of view. Call me if you want to talk about anything regarding PC.

Does anyone else want a copy?

Discussion: Statistic software

I need software to keep track of my team's statistics. I want to use a scorebook at the field and then enter the game stats to calculate game, tournament, and year-to-date stats.

Any suggestions?

I currently do this with a spreadsheet program I developed, but it's too much work.

Peoria - Feb
Apache Junction - Mar
Kent (maybe) - May
Reno - May
Redmond, WA (maybe) - Jun
Portland - June
Shelton - Jul
SLC - Aug
Medford - Sep

Discussion: Which teams are going to which tournaments - Use this site

Most of us want to know ahead of time who will be going to which tournaments. A few teams have started to ask the question on this site.

It would be great if SS USA could make this a permanent feature of this site.

I'm going to do this for my 70 AAA team in another string.

Topic: Associations
Discussion: team ratings?

Taits,

I'm not sure what you mean. Please try again.

Here's my point using a personal example from a few years ago: I was managing aa appropriately rated AA team. Because a few of my players couldn't make a USSSA tournament, I picked up a few excellent players just to be able to play. I didn't hide anything and no one questioned my roster.

There was only one other team there and we beat them in the IF game by one run and was immediately moved to AAA. This caused about one year of agony, getting our butts kicked through the required 3 tournaments (We were 1 and 18 as a AAA before getting re-rated).

At that time, using Summit rules, it didn't make a difference that the players I used in the USSSA were not, and would never be on my SS USA roster.

In retrospect, we should have stayed home or used different uniforms.

Discussion: team ratings?

After last year's Summit, SS USA announced it would keep its own ratings using its own tournament resuts only. It no longer would include results from other associations' tournaments.

Other associations are not strick enough when policing their rosters.

Discussion: T-Shirts - What to do?

What do you do with all of your old softball t-shirts? I'll never wear all of them, but I can't get myself to just toss them.

I made a New Year's resolution to "clean up the place!" (Well, I was instructed to make the resolution by my house mate. Hope she's not reading these things)
