Discussion: Setting your lineup

Have managed senior softball for many years. Always felt that your batting order is critical to having success. Would appreciate your comments and opinions as to what you think are important factors in determining batting order.

Discussion: Congrats to all at the TOC

Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed playing the Florida Legends, Las Vegas Elks and especially Scrap Iron 65's. You all are a class act and despite Budweiser getting a good old "butt kicking"...it was a pleasure stepping onto the same field with all you guys. Hope you all had a safe trip home. Look forward to seeing you this summer...although we will probably not be Budweiser, since it looks like we will be forced to disolve rather than having to play M+...which we all know "we are not"

Discussion: New PPR & Middle rule

Having played on two age groups in both SSUSA & SPA tournaments...it seems that SPA has the best rule. They simply do not have a PPR. I have seen numerous problems with umpires correctly administratingthe PPR. At the SPA tournaments, including Nationals at Dalton...there was not one incident of injury, that I am aware of, to the pitchers. The new rule, as I understand it, would take away a pitchers ability to make a play...if the ball passes through the "24" plate. If you are going to remove them from making defensive plays, why not go to the extreme of using a 24" by 72" screen. That way the pitcher can have some protection and if the net is hit, the rule would be enforced.
But, as I stated earlier, it would be best to completely do away with the rule.
Happy Holidays to all my senior softball friends.

If you are playing in Cape Coral, you gotta try Bubba's Roadhouse & Saloon. Address is 2121 SW Pine Island Rd...about a mile west of Chiquita Rd & Pine Island Rd.

Discussion: Disbanding!!!!

Since SPA, after watching us play, did re-rate us to Major we will probably only play in their tournaments, as well as Senior Olym. in Missouri & Illinois.
Many of our players are approaching 70 and they want to have the option of playing for at least a "AAA" 70's team. Our age also explains why we are having troubling beating Major & Major Plus teams.
I agree we will probably avoid the "super" softball tournaments. We have been playing SSUSA for 15+ years. Thats a lot of money. Guess they don't care about that.
A Budwesier 65 player.

Discussion: Disbanding!!!!

Most of our players agree that playing exhibition is worthless. What is hard to understand is that the "other" organization dropped us to Major and three different SSUSA directors stated to me that we are not major plus, but for some reason they still refuse to rerate us. Disbanning seems to be the only solution.
Thanks for your comments.

Discussion: Disbanding!!!!

We are considering disbanding at the end of the 2009 season. We feel we are ranked too high, but all efforts to get rerated have failed. Because of our rating (M+) we have been asked to not attend several tournaments and in several of those played...we had to do so as exhabition games only.
Looking for comments, especially from others who have or are thinking about disbanding.

Discussion: Card needed for Ft. Myers???

If a player can move up to a new age group next year, can he play on his current card this year at Ft. Myers Winter Nationals...or must he get a new card for next years age group?

Discussion: Disbandment ruling

Thanks grumpy...Thought that since the TOC was a 2009 tournament, although played in 2010, the roster for Ft. Myers establishes who you play for in 2010, with no need to disband the 2009 team.

Discussion: Disbandment ruling

Hey Guys...Since Ft. Myers is a 2010 tournament, and we plan on playing in the TOC in Feb...can our players go to Ft. Myers on new team(s) without officially disbaning. We would disband after participating at the TOC.
