Discussion: TOC 2 ??

Not only do you not have to win an ISSA event to qualify, only have had play in a 2012 event, but they consider this a 2013 event and you can bring a new roster of your choice even if guys played for other teams last year. So with an updated roster of guys who weren't eligible last year even because of age, you can go and play as a whole new and different team. Where are the champions and won't they all be happy to be spanked around by a younger stacked team?

Discussion: bat

Hey Phil: No yellow Combat Mike Macenko bat has sold for over $175.00 on ebay since before June, 2011...Just wondering if you are taking your meds faithfully because the hallucinations are begining to cloud reality for you. Bat sold originally for $199.95 so unless your doctor has medicated it too, you are way out in space.

Discussion: Eastern PA 50 AAA team seeks players

We are setting up a roster for 2013 season. Need one or two more quality players to round out our team. Please be from Eastern PA or NW NJ. The 50+ Schedule is being hashed out this weekend at our organizational meeting.

Discussion: Update from USSSA National Convention

This is just another instance of the game passing the heirarchy of the rightous and all knowing softball associations by, inspite of a clearly successful format being used for years right under their noses..Do any of the kids organizations recognize the ability of 50 year old seniors? These rules have been obviously designed to protect the multitude of 75 and over players from breaking a hip. No offense to all you 75 and older guys, please.

Discussion: Why so few AA teams

It is my understanding that all teams when new are rated AAA. So in order to become a AA team, you must have shown, in at least three tournaments, your inability to compete at the AAA level. You have had to take your lumps so to say in order to play AA. Funny though that there are very few AA teams at 50 or 55 in the northeast or mid-atlantic perhaps because most tournament teams are very competative.

Discussion: USSSA Glen Burnie, Md.

Tried to contact Bob Holland numberous times since Ocean City tourney on Labor Day. Finally got the skinny. It is a standard USSSA tournament just with age restrictions. Usual pitching antics and low arc are the norm. None of the senior rules you have come to be familiar with will be used. I think Bob is out of touch with the senior game as we know it. In spite of both Glen Burnie Md and Cape May NJ being the same distance from our area, we will choose Cape May that weekend just because we would prefer to use senior equipment and get a good look at our new guys using it.

Discussion: New player in town as it were.

The ISSA is based out of Manassas VA. run by R.B. Thomas and his family. Events are usually run smoothly but the format is only two play-in games and then double elimination for about the same money as SPA and SSWC. They are associated with the ISF and RB holds a tournament in VA in June for the International Title. They were staunch ASA supporters of ASA and its equipment for years although RB was instrumental in getting ASA to legalize senior bats after he was the next to last Ass'n to do sobecause the teams stopped coming to his events. They are making a strong push to try to dominate the southeast with few marketing incentives like play three get the fourth free...and have made inroads into PA and OH. They do use the best ball in Senior Softball today, the A>D Starr Tattoo which is exactly like the original Trump Evil ballfrom 2008-09. They need is playing in 100% humidity and 100 Degree temps in the SE in June thru September. Hope that clears it up.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: new ASA rules

Senior bats for the Senior(50+)divisions have not yet been approved for ASA. There is a code change that has to be voted on and approved at the ASA National Convention next week and needs to be approved by a majority of voting members before that happens. One of the biggest supporters now of the proposal is RB Thomas from the ISF/ISSA, an allied partner with ASA. In the ASA family, many opinions surrounding senior bats have changed significantly over the past three years, including his, when players stopped supporting the tournaments with ASA bats. It will be a battle between those who think ASA sets the standard for the game as a whole and those who want to promote the senior game...The outcome of the vote is up in the air for sure since the senior program is but a tiny part of ASA as a whole. Hope this clears it up.
