Discussion: classification

Section 14.1, B-3: "A Major team roster shall not have more than three players with a team affiliation rating history during the two previous tournament seasons greater than Major."

A simpler way to state it: You can't have more that 3 Major-Plus players

Discussion: All the hate on DBO with senior bats...how about this?

Maybe we should eliminate the pitcher and hit off a tee. Or, maybe we could have virtual indoor softball simulators so we can play against any team, at any location, at anytime of the year and nobody gets hurt.

Discussion: Why Not Have A Players Committee Of Real Players To Over See The Rules

The last survey (2013) was on adopting 1-1 Count which wasn't accepted. There should be more surveys to get the input from the players. As with all methods of data collection, surveys also come with a few drawbacks (i.e., not reaching everyone).

Sorry, Sparky!

Itís been extremely difficult following this post. The way some of the individuals of our age group/maturity responding are exhibiting adolescent attitudes and displaying antisocial behaviors are implacable and petty.

Discussion: Please send you thoughts and prayers... for the RUDY FLORES FAMILY...

I was shocked when I received the sad news of Rudy's passing on Friday from the Wongs who are playing at the same tournament in Mesquite. They said he had been complaining about heartburn similar to James Washington when he passed on the softball field back in 2009 (I was present and it was very disturbing and sobering).

Rudy was a great teammate, a competitive player, a wonderful sense of humor and a very positive attitude. Even when someone was down or upset, he would be able to put a smile back on their face.

You'll be sorely missed my friend!

surf88 - "...commitment to keep up the therapy and daily exercise" -- I agree with your statement.

Discussion: rotator cuff rehab

After the surgery, I couldnít lift my right hand without help from my left hand. I started PT (was painful) the following week after the surgery and continued for 8 weeks (2 times/week). I also did daily exercises (stretching, elastic bandsÖ) at home. I was fortunate my therapist was a baseball pitcher and he said it would take a year to be at 100%. He stated swinging a bat wouldnít be an issue early in the recovery cycle but my throwing ability would be limited. He warned me to be careful throwing the ball too hard/early as I could reinjure the shoulder (didnít want to relive that pain again) because the tissues soft and are still healing. I began playing catch (approx. 10-20 feet) with my wife after 2 months and began throwing a tennis ball at a wall (40 throws increasing Ė over time - to 100 throws per day). I played in a tournament about 4 months after surgery. Swing the bat was okay but I could tell I didnít have the strength/power I had prior to the injury. I also did not throw the ball hard (lobs and relays). I began lifting light weights (5 lbs.), push-ups (5), and other exercises at 4 months and have slowly increased the weight and repetitions. Itís been 8 months since the surgery and Iím stronger than I was before the injury and I feel Iím 90% recovered (the year timeframe seems accurate).

missouridave, I had the exact same issues/surgery you had and I'd be extremely careful about pushing it too hard and too fast as you could re-injure your shoulder and it could result in having to redo your surgery. The surgeon that performed my surgery is a triathlete (extremely great shape), has performed near 1000 of these operations, and understands the needs and desires of an athlete. He told me several stories of individuals who thought they felt okay and/or wanted to rush the normal healing process only to have it end in disaster (e.g., swinging a golf club striking the ground). I've headed that advice and I'm in better shape than I was before the injury. It was a downer having to wait but I didn't want to re-experience the surgery and lose any progress that I had made.
