Discussion: Does anyone have any idea....

Gary19 and Steve65, I respect your opinion but your words, "level of opposition..vast opposition..plenty of opposition" do not quantify your statements neither does, "I have seen little opposition". You're statements must be backed by data not fuzzy words. What are Gary19 and I? Little, Big, Medium,Tiny, Microscopic opposition or what?
My problem with what you two are writing is not courtesy runners plus or minus or steve65's history book snapshot it is your poor examples.
19 Being in Jr. High means you had no understanding of Nixon 72. I think you were too young and being a non voter you couldn't have paid enough attention.
I've enjoyed sharing my opinions with you both. Hope your bats get loaded with hits by Santa.

Gary19, I think your example on the courtesy runner thread limps a little. Where did you get your vast majority claim against blacks and women being allowed to vote? There was never a vote, straw vote or poll which substantiates your claim. You know there was opposition but no one ever put it in numbers.
Nixon is a subject that you had live through to understand why people voted for him.
I'm glad I can help you understand and to extend the Thread.Courtesy runners should be banned.They're use as an offensive weapon not as a courtesy.

Discussion: Reebok Bats

#6 thanks for including me. When you become a Reebok Rep will you send me a bat plus a tanel shirt because a cold front came into the area last night and cooled it down to 94 degrees today so I'm a little chilly.Thanks, compadre.

Now, you advise all of us not to buy reebok bats until all the kinks are worked out. However, if no one buys these bats and uses them none of the kinks will be worked out, no bats will be sold, reebock won't make them anymore, you won't be a Rep and I won't get a bat.

Discussion: Dallas Tourney

#6, A long time ago in a jazz club in Philadelphia I heard a song by Mose Brown that YOU'RE welcome to take as YOUR theme song. Its title is, "My Mind's on Vacation but my Mouth's Working Overtime". That's my point, and that's the last word from me on this subject.

Discussion: Dallas Tourney

Here we have a normal situation. A player is given an item too small. Instead of taking his complaint to Texas Half Century, Keith Parker, he starts this thread. We all jump in because we have no lives of our own. #6 reminds us for the umpteenth time that he's a Tanel Rep. Others say the same ole things. To a post like this not one reply should have been written...not even mine.

Discussion: SAD DAY FOR SOFTBALL

#10 you never address the important point. You want to argue whether Larry made you do it when in was obvious I wrote that tongue in cheek. I think LP is Larry. If so he posted his input after you sent you last insulting post to me so I couln't possibly have read THAT ONE TOO! LP wrote that he added 3 6OAAA players to his team. To me that means he strengthed his team for Phoenix where they did win a bracket game.This is the point I attemted to make.
Your weepy BAD DAY FOR SOFTBALL was nothing but a soap opera as I mentioned before.
Accept your mistake, don't blow smoke, and don't wish me good luck when you don't mean it.

#6, you told us before that Larry made you do it. You should have told Larry to do it himself because what you wrote was wrong. Texas Pickups added two substitute players from your team (60AAA) plus another very strong 60AAA player who plays for a San Antonio 60AAA and a Houston 55AAA team. This should have made them a competitive 60AAA team not cannon fodder as you described.

I know what I'm writing about and won't keep my mouth shut when I read such ignorance.Take it easy on the Bud Light. Your logic is suffering.

Discussion: SAD DAY FOR SOFTBALL

I played softball this morning with a member of the Texas Pickups who were championed by #6 as a weak 60AA team forced by SSUSA to play 60AAA in Phoenix. The Texas Pickups did add a few substitute players for Phoenix including this particular player who is a very strong 60AAA player. They were neither a weak 60AA team nor a weak 60AAA team.
#6 you ought to get the facts but more importantly, mind your own business.

#6 I do have other comments.
Thanks for the clarification of your estimate. It's a minor point but IF DONE ORIGINALLY, WE WOULDN'T BE HAVING THIS DISSCUSSION.
Thanks for inquiring about my ability to add. That was very kind.
Thanks for telling us that Larry asked you to post some of this.
Finally my most important point and the one that you neglected to address: Jumping on the SSUSA by using this message board is not only senseless but it's pointless.

This column reads like a soap opera.
A team from Texas is overrated and is going to SSWC in Phoenix at great expense to get slaughtered.
#6 who is not on this team takes up their cause whether he's asked to or not by reporting their plight to us in this column.
It'll do no good to report in this column.The team, not #6, must get the ear of the SSUSA Administration or forget about it.
I'm from Texas and have played in the SSWC in Phoenix. My expenses were less that $1000 not the $7000 to $8000 told to us by #6.

Discussion: Screens Needed? Read This.

Dirty, I disagree with your stand on pitcher protection and the examples you use to justify you stand. You know that neither Score nor Conigliaro were killed, and both were able to play subsequent seasons. Conigliaro was hit on the left cheekbone and that is why Major League Baseball use batting helmets with flaps. Major League did institute protection.
Now a senior player is killed and you say it is not cause for over reaction.

Discussion: picher's safety equipment

A lot of you are confusing the issue. If you pitch and don't want to buy and wear protective equipment YOU DON"T HAVE TO.Just sign the waiver at each SSUSA tournament. If you want to wear protective equipment, buy what YOU think is necessary. The cost will be less than a good bat. With the size of the bat bags some players drag around, it'll take up only a small portion of the bag.

4Four4, You sound like someone who would like to see a pitcher get his face rearrranged.A pitcher ought to be able to wear the protection he needs without criticism.

Discussion: Cut-off

The cut-off play is very important, but I hardly see it done correctly. Usuallly the SS or 2B runs to the outfield to relay the throw. They don't line up the throw for the outfielder and you never hear "cut it" or "let it go" from anyone. If this is the case they are RELAY men not CUT OFF men.

Discussion: They Can't Do That?

Indy 60s maybe if you send this whole column to SPA and to SSUSA (because it might affect your rating with them) noting that many players over a two week period took an interest in your plight and sided with you. All these players feel disappointed because of the ruling and because your team can't even get a hearing with SPA.

DRob, You have some strong points and you should continue your effort to correct this with the SPA President eventhough you've been unsuccessful so far.

Discussion: They Can't Do That?

Why do all you players take the side of the team which had been reclassified. Did you see any of the games they played or know their capability? It could have been that they really were much too good for 60AA and the SPA President made the correct ruling by making them play 60AAA eventhough they came in under the radar.
Howeven neither I nor any of you have the information to judge. Association Presidents should protect the competion of their associations' championships. These are not your ordinary tournaments.

Discussion: They Can't Do That?

A similar ruling was made by Ridge Hooks at the SPA Nationals in 2004 when they were played in Plano Texas. I played for Kelley's a AA team. We finished second to Team Naples, but both times we faced them it was no contest. In fact, every game they played, it was no contest. A few days after the tournament, Ridge declared our team co-champs. He does something when he feels a team is sneaking into lower divisions so they can win. Next season we were a mediocre AAA team and Naples was a major team.

Discussion: Safety First

Pitchers should wear protective equipment such as a mask, cup, and shin guards. It should be up to the pitcher, and if the pitcher gets hurt because the pitcher is not wearing this equipment, then it's the pitcher's fault. Soon pitchers will all wear protection. I base this statement on the evolution of batting helmet use in MLB. Before 1955 hardly anyone wore a batting helmet, then some players started wearing pots. Then all wore pots. Because of several serious injuries Conigliaro, Cey etc) all batters now have to use helmets with ear flaps.
