Bob really loves that Rip It Mask - especially since his team mates asked to wear it on - and off the field too......LOL he hasn't figured it out yet.....

Discussion: Just A Casual Observation

Wanted to chime in and say how nice it is to have the message board free of threats - name calling - inane arguments for arguments sake - bickering - badgering and imflammitory posts.

Now when there is a subject to be broached and discussed it can still be lively with some swords crossed from time to time, which is to be expected.

There were a lot of people that simply turned away that now seemed to have come back.

The quality that each of us experience on the fields from one another has returned to the message board.

Kudos

Discussion: Suspensions

We've gotten off topic here....I would still like to know what took place.....

Comtinuation of thread jacked topic....I know in many sports I played once you reached 40, (I also played against the kids until 57), you were considered in a "Masters" competition catagory....not too far of a jump then to add to the senior division - I think they start the pipeline at 40 to gain 10 more years of the market and provide players a way to continue at an age where they might be thinking of hanging it up - providing more income and players ($$$) for the organizations while also an organized venue for the "Masters" 40+.....good marketing (in many ways - services - products - markets) and a win - win.....

Discussion: Sliding on Turf - Big League Dreams Fields

At golden Eagle I slid into 3rd base....pretty much finished me for a long time....picked 21 little pieces of rubber out of me - (that we found) & picked up a nasty infection that lasted for months....that stuff is just plain nasty & does not drain naturally so any blood, spit, flesh remnants left cooking in it are waiting just for you with a burn (if lucky) & infection (if not so lucky) to put you down.....I will never, ever slide on that stuff again....

Echo time......

I also have had the pleasure of playing with Gil and Dave - long time solid ball players & genuinely good people.

Congratulations to both.....

Discussion: Softball and hot weather!!


Good topic Steve - it's something I've mentioned before also......

If you were going to spend $10,000's (which is what each team spends to travel to, lodge, and enter) to enter a - let's say volleyball or basketball or soccer tournament that might have national aspirations and implications you sure would not want to use a ball that is 1/3 deflated during part of the day but is OK at other parts of the day - especially at crunch time.

To have a ball (equipment) standard that changes the quality of the game is just about unheard of in any sport.

Although the Rock is considered the upper tier when it comes to heat I think the Baden Fire is a fair playing ball cold and hot. I don't think it is fair for commercial considerations/affliations to undermine the quality, thereby changing the game......

Yes - we lost a HOF pitcher and frined a couple of years ago. Hit his head at home (dwelling) and the thinners worked against saving him.

That is a very good point.

Discussion: RE; NCSSA HOF event this week at BLD in Manteca

jrd231 - I wonder if they could go back to dirt infields like Twin Creeks down the road.....

Would depend more I guess on winter schedule games as it's a pay to play complex with a cookie cutter franchise design.....

It's possible you didn't hit "post message" after you wrote up your post.....

Sometimes you can hit "post message" and the page kind of freezes and suspends the message - somewhere - but it will not show....

Discussion: Prayers for the Drechsler Family, Pace Softball Club

Prayers and good thoughts sent...

Didn't play them too often but one of the best was in SPA - 2 1/2 hours 34-33 game.

Whenever we ended up in the same place I'd like to go over and sit and chat with them - a good, entertaining group of guys....that team has been together for many years and they were a pretty tight group of guys...I'm sure - for them like losing a member of their family.

Condolences to all.....Pete

Discussion: USA U2 snapped

Although I no longer swing them (durability) I've seen this happen with other players 3 times. Never an old bat always almost new....

It's always in the same place on the handle.

One time two guys split the cost - bought on off the truck at game time - and 4 swings later - broken at that same spot on the handle - looks like cut off......

They went back and the vendor would not take the bat or replace.....I told them to call the credit card company and stop the purchase figuring that would get a result for them somewhere....don't know if they did that or not - they were amazed/perplexed/smokin' mad all at the same time....

There is a factory - manufacture problem there.....

Discussion: for swing

Bob - not disputing you & know that you have a good swing - but off the tee does not seem like a good test - anybody with a little tee work placing the ball with the stitching/seam horizontal can look like Babe ****** Ruth and put on a home run derby/display using a tee...I think over time this ball will have it's +'s & -'s.....I have my own opinion on it and the marketing nitch. But since I don't have to use it it makes no difference.

Discussion: New Worth Legit 2 Piece Senior 1st test results.....

Alan - Every day on the field is a good day regardless of wind in - out - or sideways and I'll take your word for the evaluation and the approach.

We're all selective about our bats and the evaluations seem to run the gamut both for and against depending on the evaluators. We really don't know until we take it out an swing indivually as each of our swings and techniques/games are different.
When I first started the post it was tongue in cheek because of the "nice finish" but then it took a turn somewhere and got too wordy.

God knows there's no virgins on this message board to protect.

Sometimes it seems like there's multiple threads going with something to sell as the underlying message. Best to you as well.
