Would have been nice to meet you. Are you guy's going to thh Winter Worlds in Vegas ? Thanks for the recoginition.

Enjoyed the good weather,but let's cut to the "chase"!SSUSA,staged a Terrific WS Tourney. The Umpires were generally spot on!The Director's were responsive and engaged. Joe & Don were on top of their game at Rose Moffett Park,they were,up beat,and accessible with quick decisions,when necessary.The competition was tough making for close competitive games for the most part.A shout out to Bob's Classic,Utah our Brother's in Rivalry.We both as usual played a hard fought game,we caught the breaks, and were able to pull out the win,our respect to you guy's is well placed,you guy's make us better!To all the Teams we played,you were skilled competitors, worthy of recognition,we thank you for the E-Ticket Ride.Your efforts made our success even more suprising and rewarding. As we leave our AA Ranking,we know how competitive the AA Teams are & will continue to be!Congradulatios to Terry,Fran,Dave & the rest of SSUSA for putting on a Professional Senior Softball Tourney.

Hey Pricer , not a problem , apoligies not necessary. As you might surmise I enjoy this Great game and have the impression you do as well.
Gary19 , I guess I am being contraian. You of course are entitled to your opinions, to be clear I am not saying all of your post are negatve , it just seems so many are.You do what you must. Might want to lighten up a tad on belittling those that are actually playing,SSUSA. Your call.

Pricer, to answer your question as to Managerial experince. I have managed local teams , since the early 1970's. In Senior Softball I started the Git-R-done Softball Clubs , we currently have 1 team each at the, 55,60,65,and are starting a 70's team this year. All our Manager's follow a Club Manifesto , written primarily by me. So I have enough experince to at least express opinions. All of us are entitled to our Humble Opinions. It sometimes just gets tiring and boring when we have a few "one trick ponies " who are not interested in improving our game , but have constantly badgered the game and its participants! Again I happen to believe Gary19 is a contraian whose main game is to be disagreeable , per his many posts.

Gary 19 , why don't you take your weak bat and small balls and play elsewhere , you are a contrarian and I can prove it ! You love your ego and it shows , just like your slip!You rarely acknowlegde those that reach out to you in conversation , humor is foreign to you, you seem to have no life , which leads me to beleive you just want to cause contraversey and put down the Game we enjoy playing. I am not a Major+ player , but as stated in the past support the improved equipment and am privileged to continue to play this game with it. I also, enjoy the invention of electricity , the the x-ray machine ,or should I just live in the dark and play with broken bones that could be tended to? So grab yourself and leave us the Hell alone ! Pricer you may defend him as you will ,that is your choice.

Pricer , please note response to Gary 19. Hopefully that will clarify my response to your Thread. But to you I say. I have broken to many Glass House's already , but just like I use the new and improved Senior Equip., I now have a Plexie Glass House. Only problem is that sometimes the ROCK's bounce back and nail my ass ! Oh well, guess I'll start using foam rock's.I did not mean to dimmish your Thread , considering the amount of responses you generated , I was remiss and the fact that I closed out the Thread at 130 responses (sorry) ,I believe your challenge of what fellow player's want to have changed is legimate! So can I take my foot out of my mouth , I am FREAKING , Starving !

Gary 19,First off , thank You for your response , althought I may not agree with you , maybe some clarification is in order.
The words of Fatality Rates was said in jest , and yes as is in any sport deaths can happen because of unsafe equipment . That was not my point. I enjoy the senior equip.& want it to be available for those that choose to use it. My point was that by going to 2 or 3 Divisions you could be endangering those of us who do not have the same abilities as our Major+ Brother's. There are all kinds of reasons why player's cannot compete at the upper divisions , why would you want to erase them by eliminating the Lower divisions. By having the AAA , AA Divisions you expand the pool of player's and keep the Senior Softball Tournaments viable for the Assosciations to stay in business , thereby providing a way for ALL of us to continue to enjoy the game we Love , not the game of eliminating player's. I guess we could all go to WOODEN BAT's and MUSH BALLS , that would make some of you all HAPPY , as we can probably go to 1
LEAUGE ! TOMAR

Discussion: Change

This just get's OLD. What is it that those on the Board want to change The Senior Game !?
Not the Baseball Game that we all played in our younger years, but a game that has been modififed to accommadate our slower reflexes and weaker eyesite so that we can keep the fatality rate at a reasonable level. Yes , there has been adjustments to keep the game viable for those of us that have aged, God forbid ! If those of you were to prevail and reduce the divisions down to 2 or 3 categories you would lose many teams. Your lack of commonsense is suprising. I am sure that if you thought it completely through you would know that you would hasten the demise of Senior Softball. Most of us play for the Sport of it ! We are not looking to be the best. We try to be the BEST that we can be with whatever limitations we personally have to deal with at whatever level. So now you want to endanger us to prove what ? I like to play with the best equipment that is available , but if the associations are going to follow your lead than I think that I will stick with Rec. Ball in our city leagues to keep life and limb in place. Speaking of Rec. Teams, they do not compare with AA Teams , those of us that are committed to playing Senior Softball Tournaments are the best in the world , no matter the level. I have put together a number of Rec. Teams and Senior AA Teams and Trust me the Rec. Teams at our age do not compare with Senior tournament teams at our age level. So if you have the penchant to beat up on Teams that don't meet your level of competiveness just so you can feed your EGO,then your shortsighness will be your demise.
Duke you would be welcomed to our team if it was allowed. You have earned your well deserved rating , a terrific player and a gentleman to boot ! Martha and I say to you GOOD LUCK at the Worlds.

Discussion: CAL STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS

Could it be that with The recent Western Nationals mid-July and The Cal Cup mid-August, that just maybe teams that would be interested in playing both , felt that the cost of 2 Major Tourney's so close together was prohibitive ? It certainly affected our decision. Now if the Cal Cup were held in the above suggested sites. Particularly , Hemet or Temecula(which are in fact very good Ball Fields)we would have Ponyed up the Fees and played. We are a So. Cal. based team which is reflected in this decision.

Discussion: why do we need seeding games

WE use the seeding games to :
1. Get acclimated to the time element of getting there. Luckily we are in so. cal. so not a major time prob.
2. With 5 games we get to play the game we love even if it is "Just Exercise"! Which by the way is as good as any other reason to play.
3. Hopefully we are "ALL" preparing for the Games that COUNT!
4. DARN IT ! IT'S JUST, DOG GONE FUN TO PLAY BALL !

O.K. , Now you have checked out the Burbank League , you have been contacted by Danny AKA , SoftballGramps , where do you stand ? If you are serious and want to travel and PLAY BALL! Its time to look at an organization that has been around and paid its DUES , but also knows how to take care of its players and is looking to elevate its game with players that can bring our competitive level forward. If you are that kind of player , please contact me at tomar-2002@hotmail.com , we are based out of the Inland Empire , So Cal.

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Bat Warmers

Thank you for your response Tait. SSUSA , thank you for your clarification , commonsense has prevailed. I felt that the umpire was misinterpeting the rule , but chose not to argue the point. He handled the situation in a fair way as he interpeted the rule. Might want to have Ray reveiw the rule with his staff. The umpire in question called a good game otherwise, no harm done.
