Discussion: This FUSS w/ PAT & the lil' KIDZ.....

Stoney,

I don't know anything about the team or the guys are you are talking about. I read your message pointing out certain incidences that may have brought attention to certain individuals. I am writing this because you mentioned Terell of Florida being accused of using an altered bat.

If Terell of Florida is T-Rex as we know him, his character is beyond reproach. From the short time that I have spent with him, he would rather swing a broom stick than to use an altered bat. I hope he doesn't mind me writing this, but T-Rex is well into his 50's and has never had a drop of alcohol. Why? It's because of his Christian beliefs. I wasn't there, but I feel safe to say that T-Rex was hitting seeds or bombs and talking smack. There are a lot of REAL men on the circuit who can hit without CRUTCHES.

See you soon,

Your Brother

Discussion: unlimited arc

Unlimited Arc: I WILL RETIRE. As a 19 year old kid in 1974, I almost quit the game of softball because of the unlimited arc. I was 6'3" at the time. I can imagine what it would have been like had I been a gnome (LOL). I have nothing against short people; my girl is short (LOL). Slowpitch is supposed to be a hitter's game.

It is my opinion that the arc would not have any impact on the bat controversy. As long as man is breathing, there will be a BAT DOCTOR who will find a way, regardless of whether the bat is made of wood or bamboo. Therefore, someone will always, UNFORTUNATELY, have a hot bat.

This is a little off the subject, but Taits stated, "calls for excessive height". I recall playing in Canada and the base umpire made the ball/strike call as it related to height. There was a wire extending across the backstop which was the height of the ceilng for a strike. That would have an impact on excessive height and create consistency. Just something to think about.

Horace T, I had to respond to you because you have such a great first name (LOL). As for a pitcher making a difference in a game, he needs to work on his pitching like hitters work on their hitting. If a pitcher hit the front of the plate and the back of the mat consistently, he will be pretty effective.

Just a little tidbit from the Sunshine State. Horace J

Gary19,

I hope you are doing well this afternoon. I am sure that recognize the words in quotations. Therefore, skip that and please continue to the next paragraph.

" suppose I could bend and live with someone calling some actual, grueling activity "war". But slow-pitch softball, especially the way Seniors play it? With courtesy runners? And run limits? And the maddingly slow pace that Seniors get on and off the field? And 5 teams in a bracket? Uhhhhhh, I don't think so."

A struggle or competition between opposing forces or for a particular end. That sentence is one of Merriam-Webster's definitions of the word WAR. By that definition, a game of checkers could be consider a war.

I would like to know a little about you if I may. I don't like to make assumptions' therefore, I am going to throw some things out there for you. Questions: Are you just a controversial kind of fellow? Why do you dislike Senior Softball? Why are you against runners? Are you against the base burglar in ISA? The young uses that player.

If you don't mind, please respond. I would love to read what you have to say.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Sick of these bats !

Wood, I love your last sentence. I just figured I would throw my 2 cents in about the bats. I started playing senior softball regularly last year. Until this season, I used a yellow Synergy. I loved it. Had I not broken, it is very likely that I would still be using it. I now swing a Combat; it's hot! I also swing a Jeff Hall Mayhem, and I like that bat too.

Therefore, I must agree with your last sentence. I would like to say it another way, if you will allow me to do. A hammer is only as good as the carpenter.

For all of you who are questioning the usage of different bats, I have one question for you. WOULD YOU GO TO A GUN FIGHT WITH A KNIFE? It's about parity.

Discussion: asa

QUESTION: Can anyone tell me the legal bats that may be used for ASA? Please add the company's name. MANY THANKS! I am not one of those guys who walk around with a $1,000 worth of bats. You may call me cheap, but I don't care. I have three bats. I can only hit with one (hahahahahahahaha)

Discussion: CONGRATULATIONS

I want to publicly CONGRATULATE my teammates on Hollis Appraisals. Way to go FRIENDS! You guys are SPECIAL. Even though a game was lost 42-45, you displayed a mighty example of intestinal fortitude (GUTS). To be down 25-45 going into the bottom of the last inning and fight back with 17 without any HR\'s, showed a lot of determination. That inning may have been more impressive than the 27 run inning we had earlier in the tournament. Why? The game was on the line.

I can\'t say it enough. You guys are SPECIAL. I am PROUD to be associated with some of the best PLAYERS and PEOPLE in the WORLD.

Again, CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Straight from the HEART,

Horace/Jeff/Dueces/Two\'s

Discussion: Looking for a team to play with in world tournaments.

I know Randy. As a matter of fact, I played with him last year on the Dodge City Bud 45 team. He was the MVP, and HE CAN PLAY. He's a real player and an AWESOME teammate.

Make room for him; you can't go wrong.

Hello Randy

Discussion: Joint Medication

DMac,

I had knee surgery back in 1999. On March 12th of this year, I had to visit my doctor because the pain in my knee was intolerable. He gave me a cortosone (sp) shot. Now, I have heard of the pain some have experienced taking the shot; however, I didn't suffer at all. Since, I have gone back to my surgeon monthly. Each time he asked whether I needed another. I didn't. He also perscribed a drug called Mobic. If you aren't against taking prescribed meds, perhaps you should look into it. I do take the Mobic daily. I do experience some pain after competition involving multiple games. After icing, I am good for the next day. I can now run and walk without suffering. By the way, I am not scheduled to see the doctor until September.

Mobic is a generic form of a another drug. For me, the cost is $4 per month. It's worth it for me. I don't mean to sound arrogant, but I am sure that my teammates are glad that there is something I can take.

Discussion: New Mat Size

I have an opinion and a question. I don't feel that expanding the width or the length will make that much of a difference. I can say that because I am 6'5" with long arms. As I stated, I am 6'5", and I have also played in Canada. Twelve feet is twelve feet, whether a person is 6'5" or 5'6". If adding inches to the mat is there to help the umpire, why don't they put a wire up near the backstop and allow the base umpire determine the legality of a pitch as it pertains to the height/ceiling? Now, that would help the umpire. I think that's where the inconsistencies lie.

Discussion: HELP ON THE RULES (SSWC OR ANYONE ELSE)

Freddie, I read your scenario. I may be wrong but this is the way that I think the rule would be interpreted. Being that the second runner has crossed the plate, it would seem to me that he would be treated as a player standing outside of the dugout. A deadball would be called, and the runner closest to the plate will be called out. The batter/runner will go back to second.

I am now interested in knowing the actual call.

Discussion: Miken Ultra II, the NEW Miken Ultra II Advanced and the Altering of Bats:

Stoneman, it's interesting to read all of the information about bats. You know that I have never been that knowledgeable about bats. Just give me a bat and let me swing. Whether a ball travels 330 or 430, it's only one run. However, I really do enjoy seeing those mammoth shots. I have never used an Ultra, not even during batting practice. After participating last weekend in Fort Myers, I may have to swing one for kicks. I saw some gnomes hitting balls that should have been routine outs. It was incredible. Okay! I'm sold.

Enlighten me, the other half of the booze brothers
