Discussion: What's the call

No I agree on the verbal interference, especially if the runner yells in the fielders face, that is interference. I just thought it was funny that a LH hitter would listen to the catcher when the ball is in front of him and the RF threw him out. Run it through then go argue. You know that is what was about to happen. Just wanted to make a point that it is fun and there are little things that make it even more fun. Like I said telling the runner to go at third early in forty plus years has only worked a couple of times. As long as you don't do something to get anyone hurt it's not BUSH, and most of the people on this board and who play in the tournaments are not BUSH. That's why we keep playing, we all were pretty good in our day and we still enjoy it. And most of you are still pretty darn good ball players. For old guys

Hey Gies,kicking better than ever. Got the three Synvisc shots a month ago and a new brace,ready to go again. Knee feels better than it has in a couple of years now. Hope it does after a few nights of playing two to three games a night. See ya at the park. So have you found out anything about GJack yet?

You guys need to keep your heads in the game. In college ball we were taught as third basemen to get behind the coach on a fly ball and tell the runner to go before ball was caught, trying to get them to leave early. No disrespect for the game, just gamesmanship. Worked a couple of times once against a nationally ranked college team, no one cried about it and I was congratulated by a coach from a major university who had won several National Championships on what a good job that was. Didn't work most of the time, because players knew to listen only to the coach. Not cheating just getting that little extra edge that winning teams take advantage of, like Jeter getting hit on the hand.....Trying to get someone hurt on the other hand is not right. You don't fake the tag, but an infielder does try to make the runner think the ball is on the ground instead of a fly if he knows how to play the game. Little things make a big differance.

Discussion: Brackets and results

I would just like to make a comment about this years SSUSA web site. I doubt if I am the only one wondering why we can not get the brackets before the tournaments, or the results of the tournaments after they have been completed. In years past you could come to this site and get all of the information you needed as to who would be at the tournament, locations, and after the fact who won. It would be real nice to see this again. Unless I am just missing it, but I have looked, I know I am getting old, but not yet senile. I HOPE.

Discussion: Looking for 55 AAA team SLC

Second wind 55+ is a pretty good team ( I am on their roster as well as Long Shot 50+) They are really a AA team but could compete in AAA. BRL 55 and Shawn Enterprises are the two top teams in the 55 bracket from here. They are both great teams with great guys on the team. Glad to see so many of you are going to make it to Salt Lake. Good luck to all.

Discussion: who's going to Salt Lake City

I just got off the phone with SSUSA and they are telling me they have a stack of rosters that they have not gotten to yet and there will be plenty of teams here in Salt Lake. Hope to see you ALL here, it has been a long time since we have had a good tournament "like the old days" here in Salt Lake.

Well at least you don't have to play two games at the same time. Long Shots play at 8:00 am vs. Island Boys on field 2 and at 8:00 am vs. Willie's Wolves on field 3. I guess we can run back and forth the fields are next to each other.

Discussion: what can we use?

What about the Miken T22C6? I have had this bat for two years now and everything I read says it is a legal bat. This last weekend in Phoenix I had a player from one of the other teams ask me about it, because they had a player that was told he could not use it. What's up with that? It is a good bat, but not nearly as hot as my Ultra II.
