Discussion: HR'S

The homerun rule is a great way to balance out the league. If you are a home run hitter, I'm sure there are a lot of Major and Major+ teams that would like to add you to their roster. My 55+ AAA team has been victimized by the new rules. We lost a tournament in Palm Springs to a DBO homerun in the last inning. But in looking at the big picture, players should play at the level they are capable of. If you are a homerun hitter and want to hit homeruns, than join the Major and Major+ divisions. There are plenty of teams to go around. The new rule now places an added strategy in the game. Save your homeruns until the last inning or run the risk of ending the game with a DBO homerun. I'm impressed with the calibur of players playing senior softball and their uncanny ability to place their hits where they want to, when they want to. This rule does not mean it is open season on pitchers, but actually puts the whole field into play, not just the homerun fence. IMO this rule makes it competitive in the AAA division.

Yes....Of the 75% that responded in objection to the new HR rule, what is the demographics? I'm a 55 AAA player and I like the rule. Responses should include the age group and division you play in. Let's see if we have a good cross section of responses. Or... are the responses heavily weighted to one age group or division?

For those of us with limited funds, having the Western Nationals in Salt Lake City (August 7 - 9) and the California State Championships in Yolo County (Aug 14 16) on back to back weekends could short change one of the major tournaments. Just an observation.

Softballgramps
The dates for the Pendleton Tournament are June 28 & 29, Saturday & Sunday for the 50's; 55's; 60's; and 65's: The 70+ teams are playing on Thursday and Friday.

AVS:....Oceanside is okay to stay as it is near the fields. North of Pendleton is San Clemente, also a nice place to stay and about 40 minutes from the fields. Go to the North County Senior Softball website at www.ncss-cd.com for a map and all of the details.

Discussion: Team Coaches Get No Respect

Enviro-Vac..great post. To Mike B. I echo everything you stated. I'm a realitive newcomer to senior softball and to managing a team. My hats off to all of those managers and coaches that have done so for many years without loosing their sanity. For me, it's easy to manage a team if you have a great bunch of players with the same common goal. Be competitive! You aren't going to win all of the tournaments. The Top Gun Senior Softball program has been around for a long time with a very long standing tradition. Players coming into the program know the quality of play and the expectations up front. The ground work has been set and I get to ride on their coattails. But most of all, we as managers know what is expected as well. That is why we continue to manage, coach, and hopefully play. To Bill Allen, I'm sure senior softball is loosing a dedicated manager/coach and I wish you the best. For me, it's getting ready for the next tournament, trying to put together a lineup, and finding a great place to eat. Most of all, it's another oportunity to meet some great people involved in this great game.
