Discussion: Defensive Philsophy @ World Masters

Considering the power these guys have and the speed of the defense. They have to try and hit the gaps with power. A mistake and the ball goes out. Thus they try to hit down through the infield and consequently the defense responds with the 5 man. It works for the 40/50's M+ and some 55 M+. I do not believe the same type of defense is effective in the 60's, due to a natural loss of unbridled power, 60 year old players have no problem going for the gaps especially since we rarely get our 9 HRs a game. Except for the Worlds when we use the ROCK, then a higher percentage of teams will reach the HR limit.

I want to thank everyone for kind words. An award of this type is not singular in its making. Without the love and support of my family, absolutely great teammates, and the Lord God my saviour, I do not believe this possible.

The awards ceremony for myself and Bobby Davis will be held at BLD at 12:00 on Friday, Oct 3rd. There is a pool going on regarding the over under on the length of my acceptance speech. Don't worry about me though, my son Nolan is presenting the award and he is much more verbose than me. I promise it will not be too long, we all have ballgames to get to.

They called my Dad, Mr. Adair.

I did not even know my name was Mike until I was 16. I thought it was "Damn Boy", because that is all I ever heard.

Discussion: hip replacement

Total Hip Replacement 12/2007. Lose weight before you get it done. Listen to your Physical Therapist.

I never was fast, but I am not much slower.

Played in a tourney 90 days after surgery. Best quality of life decision I ever made except of course for marrying my wife.

Boulder City - Big Horn
I have not played there, but I have been assured by a local that this is an absolutely great park to play at. No snack bar, but great fields.

Seriously you buy from a website with graphics like this and you expect it to be legit. Good rule of thumb, if they don't include any information anywhere on their website regarding their LLC or physical location. Then buyer be ware.

You must be new to the board. When LVSSA and SSUSA combined there was an agreement to use the Rock ball in the Vegas Tournaments. Not sure how long this will be in effect, but at least for this year.

Now that Webbie is playing with you, I expect that is worth 7 run an at bat.

OFFICIAL SOFTBALLS SSUSA Rulebook 3.5
There have been some recent competition issues and inquiries about "Official" Softballs for SSUSA events ... At SSUSA administered events, we provide six (6) softballs for team use and have additional softballs available for purchase should a team desire to do so We offer the following information to clarify our official softball policy ...

Rulebook 3.5 (page 17) defines an Official Softball for SSUSA sanctioned tournaments ...
Rulebook 3.5 E. states "In all SSUSA sponsored qualifiers and tournaments, official game balls must have the official SSUSA stamp or be pre-approved by SSUSA headquarters, located in Sacramento, CA."
Except for the LVSSA/SSUSA World Masters and Southwest Championships held in Las Vegas (which use "The Rock" ball), the only softball that meets that pre-approved criteria is the Anaconda Trump "Stote" optic yellow softball with .44 cor and 375 compression ratings ... Additionally, any such softball must have the official logo of SSUSA, ISA (the Base Burglar logo), Florida Half-Century (FHC) or Texas Half-Century (THC) imprinted on the cover ... NOTE: Among the most often encountered non-compliant softballs are "The Rock" and "Micro-Cell" technology softballs ...
PENALTY - Teams discovered to be using non-compliant softballs shall be assessed a "forfeit" for that game if they are discovered to have introduced a softball for play that does not meet the specific criteria of Rulebook 3.5 E. (as clarified above) ... The use of non-compliant softballs is deemed to be the use of "illegal" equipment ...

Please contact the Sacramento Home Office if you have any questions ... Thank you!
