Discussion: Anyone use Glucosamine, Chondroitin and/or MSM?

Bruce; I have taken all three for the past several years. It will work on about 25% of the time. I was to have had knee surgery and with two x-rays 12 months apart, cartilage had appeared enough to eliminate the surgery. I found the best place to obtain at a reasonable price is Costco and Sam's Club...Hope this helps..

Discussion: Senior sotball tourns...???

thanks guys..got knocked off again. Seems like these guys speak from both sides of their mouth. They say they promote senior softball but only if they get their $$$ in return. I will hit these web sites that you had mentioned with the April 24th. Cols, Ohio tourn. I just want to see more people get involved that do not have the money to travel. Any other advice, I would very much appreciate. thank you: funinsun333@yahoo.com

Discussion: Senior sotball tourns...???

can any of you list an unbiased site to list senior softball tourns. Some leagues just do not have the money to patronize the national tourns. but would like to play more locals. Been in senior ball for quite a few years and more and more, it is about money and not really promoting the senior game. Please let me know: funinsun333@yahoo.com thanks.

Discussion: SAFETY FIRST

the screened was agreed upon by the coaches at the time of the game; if deemed necessary. It is bad enough to play during the day with the bats we use. I have seen what can happen with a night game. No legislation here. Nothing harmed if two coaches agree. And I feel that the rules were written as such to not deter from the basic game of softball.

Discussion: SAFETY FIRST

I had a fall tourn. of which was hampered by rain but i did incorporate rules for the usage of a screen if we had to go into night games of which all of the teams seemed to have liked. IT can be done. However, I would first like to start with required protection such as masks and head guards for the runners...again, "make it cool !! " And if we had to go into night games, make it an agreeable option of both teams to utilize the screen.

Discussion: SAFETY FIRST

I think that all of us need to refrain from some of the cutezy and self worth comments and start thinking very seriously about the safety in softball. I have played with Joe Merritt for quite a few years and by no means is he slow on his reflexes. For him to take a hit as he did is very frightening. If it became mandatory for pitcher masks and even light head gear for the base running, I think that it would overwhelming be acceptable by all and at all age groups, including the younger divisions. This year,I have heard about too many injuries and deaths from taking shots from a "hot" bat to wild throws from the infield. SSUSA is concerned about one's life with the onhand and usage of the AEDs but why not be concerned about one's loss of vision, brain damage, etc. Let's make it "cool" to wear masks and head protection. Afterall, it did finally become cool to wear them in the NHL !!!

Discussion: They Can't Do That?

I just had a five team tourn. this past weekend in Columbus, Ohio.(that came about within four weeks of preparing). And trust me, it was a lot better than the four team world tourn. we had in Dalton this year and an awful less expensive. Next year, I will be having a spring and fall $$$ tourn. NO CARDS and I will try to encourage the league teams around Central Ohio to participate.Dayton will be having the Jimmy V on the 4th of July. Again, no cards. If you would like on the list for these tournaments, please email me: funinsun333@yahoo.com

Discussion: They Can't Do That?

Can't you guys see what this is all about - $$$$$. The Indy 60s are truly a good bunch of guys and would never do anything beyond the rules they play. We never had these issues 10 years ago so severely as we do now. I believe the reason is that the organizations then were smaller and big profits were not there for them yet. We as teams gripe but still fall into their graces. Look what happened a few years ago to the ISF and ISSA. Teams stopped going and changes were then made. My suggestion is to quite griping and stay away from these organizations. One solution that we are trying, is to play more local tourns. without I.D. cards. I truly feel that most teams just want to play with their buddies. But then again, you have few to the exception that makes is bad for all. Again, do the players and teams do something about it, or just keep whinning!

Discussion: Ridge Hooks comment

you cannot ask for a more nicer gentleman and his religous beliefs are quite outstanding. I think that most players are just upset with a lot of these TD because of it now being a huge business. It is like, take it or leave it. I know of many teams that do not want rule changes at the tournament. Most players just want to play ball and keep the big money and politics out of it.

Discussion: Pre-World Tourn. Sept. 26th.- Columbus, Ohio

As usual the team interest is starting to come about. We currently have interest of 5-6 teams. We know that it will be smaller this year, but this is something that we want to carry over year to year to get leagues involved with senior ball and for teams to get a chance to check out their new prospects for next year. In picking up a player, you can go 1 year down. Please let me know ASAP..thanks...
