Discussion: 2014 World Masters

We do not need a 4 day bracket. This is the Worlds, win or go home. That is the price you pay when your brackets exceed a certain number of teams. Great you get to play new teams, but bad if they beat you. That may sound harsh, but if you do not go into the loser bracket then you benefit.

That is the whole point of winning the championship instead of receiving a participation award. If anything some of the lessor tournaments should be two day events instead of three.

Thank you SSUSA for a putting on such a great event. The logistics associated with such an event is almost unimaginable. We enjoyed the outstanding views afforded at The BigHorn Park. Next time put us somewhere that we will not be distracted by the sheep or Lake Mead because I am sure that was the reason we were having a hard time catching the ball.

Thank you Terry and Fran for the Hall of Fame Ceremony at BLD. My family was extremely impressed with the setting. Being from Arkansas they were happy with the indoor toilets. Seriously though SSUSA is a class act and thank you for all of your efforts.

The guy you went around was your own player and the defensive player is not allowed to tag you for an out. I do not know if you went through the box or not.

Seriously....do what I do, pick up the phone and call someone who is there. That is much better than just seeing the scores.

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.

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.

As long as we are hitting "The Rock", it's all good.
