Discussion: Favorite Team Names

Played against a team in mens league who named themselves "Balls Deep". Not really something I wanted my kids to see, but amusing still the same. Also tried to name our coed team "He's and Hoes", but the women wouldn't go for it.

Discussion: Anyone out there from Rancho Cordova, Ca?

mad dog,
Didn't forget about Randy. He was 1 of the 3 drafted in the 1st round. He was our neighbor down the street. Pitched for the Phillies. Mike Ondina was drafted in the first round also, but never made it out of the minors.I did forget about Max Venable. He played 12 years in the Majors. I played on a All Star Pony League team with him in 1970. I don't think his brother Darrell played anywhere. I also forgot the Nyman brothers, Chris(1973) and Nyls(1972). Chris played 2 years for the White Sox and Nyls played 4 years for the White Sox also. Jerry Manuel actually had a scholarship to Notre Dame playing football. I believe he was a punt returner. Don't know what happened to Rod Connors. Played Junior High football with him. Dude was fast. Also Larry wolfe (1971), played in the Majors from 1977 to 1980. Pretty amazing crop of athletes during that 5 year period. Who was your ex?

Discussion: Anyone out there from Rancho Cordova, Ca?

Anybody out there graduate from Cordova High in the early 70's? Would be great to hear from an old classmate. Will be in Mesquite this week. The 70's was a great decade for our school in football and baseball. I believe we were rated as the #1 high school football team of the decade for the 70's. The Class of 1972 yielded 3, first round draft choices in baseball. Most notable, Jerry Manuel, current manager of the NY Mets.

Discussion: Torn pcl muscle

Has anyone out there had to deal wtih a partial tear in their pcl muscle? It took an MRI and a scope to discover what was wrong. For me it is painful at the back of my knee to make any quick moves. My orthopedic surgeon suggested resting it. Its been 6 months since the injury and 3 months that I have rested it. Not seeming to get any better. He said it is an uncommon pull and I would probably have to go to a specialist in Salt Lake City for repair.(the guy who did Tiger Woods knee). Any suggestions or info?

Where would you typically place your strongest outfielder? Considering speed, glove and arm strength.

Discussion: rotator cuff surgery

I had the rotor cuff surgery about 5 years ago. I'm now 51. As I recall (I use this term loosely), it was 4-6 months. I remember all the brutal therapy sessions that seemed neverending. I also remember being ready for the start of ball season, which was 6 months from surgery date. Although the whole process was a hassle, it was well worth the sacrafice. Hope you have a speedier recovery than I did. Good Luck.

I give up. What the heck does "Grandfathered in" mean? Could someone take the time and explain this to a curious simpleton?

Discussion: BLOWN HAMSTRING REPAIR

Gunny,
Don't know part of your hamstring is injured, but I pulled both of mine near the end of a season in rec league about 4 years ago. Felt a tingling at the bottom of my butt, but didn't know what it was. It progressively got worse. Went to a couple of chiropractors who informed me they were pulled hamstrings. They both said to rest it. That meant no running, doing squats, jumping rope, jogging, nothing. It took me 3 months or so for them to heal. If I over exert them I can feel the pain coming back. Proper stretching and running relaxed seems to have worked the best for me . I posted a message March 9, 2007, under general and miscellaneous, that has a lot of good advice from other softballers on how to take care of the hammys. Good luck.

Discussion: What Would You Change - Other Items

Yo #19,
I think your reply on sandbaggers and egotists, may apply to a few but not the majority. Many of us are on teams with 1 or 2 homerun hitters. That is the general consensus. To me, that makes the majority of aa teams comparable with each other concerning the home run hitters. So what can it hurt to let us hit a few more. The rule is the same for both teams.. It's not an ego thing or a sandbagging issue. A lot of times when a guy just tries to hit it hard, it goes out. Those of us in aa may not be adept enought to keep the ball down at will. It seems a shame to be punished for hitting it hard. Even though it may seem correct to move up to aaa, for some of us it's not that easy. Some of us live hundreds of miles from major cities, where having access to other teams is possible. It took me 3 months of posting messages to get on a team. Plus, maybe we like the teams we play for and don't want to take the chance of getting on a team full of undesirables. I believe a vast majority of us in aa, just not the bangers, would like to see that second homer be a single or have some type of a 1 up rule. I do appreciate your views as we are all entitled to our own opinion. Good luck in your upcoming season.

Discussion: What would you change in Senior Softball?

I've been playing senior softball in the AA division for Scrap Iron about a year. Having a ball. I play with a great bunch of guys. I'm a small guy(5'7", 155 lbs.), and have decent power. In AA we're only allowed 1 homerun, then an out. I read a lot of replies that if you want to hit more homeruns, move up. But I prefer to play with this group of guys that I have made a commitment to and have grown attached to. Our team is a decent AA team, but I think we're overmatched for AAA.(I hope my team doesn't mind me saying this). How come that second ball out can't be a single or even a foul ball? After the first one out I don't try to hit it out, just trying to hit it hard somewhere. Do I have any supporters out there? Either way, I'll always be ready to play.
Thanks,
Pete Ayotte
