Discussion: Good sunglasses

I tried a lot of different sunglasses in the low to medium price range......none of them "held up"....I liked some of them to begin with, but the covering on the lens'was inferior and didn't last. Some were too heavy...others didn't hold the shape, etc, etc.....I finally decided that I was going find a pair that I liked and pay the price...no matter what. I looked at them all and settled on the "Maui Jims".....they are pricey but are by far the best I've used....light weight, fit great and handle the glare exceptionally well. My eyes are sensitive to glare and these solve that problem. It's all about the lense and you get what you pay for.....Some less expensive glasses give a distorted image. Good luck on your search...it's not as easy as one might think.

Discussion: Turf vs Cleatsw

Like most Senior players, I have tried a lot of different shoes. My favorite was the Tanel 360 until I tried the 3N2 Turf shoe. It is by far my favorite to date....I find it light weight and very comfortable...........I also think it is a good looking shoe.

Discussion: WHY THE PPR MUST GO

JMHO, of course :-)Redneck...Pencilneck...what the heck?:-).....Just pickin' an grinin':-)

PPR... Hitting up the middle is part of the game...Pitchers know it and the good ones deal with it.... one way or another.

Montgomery does look like it's shaping up to be a good tournament, I hope the weather holds out. I really look forward to the competition and seeing everyone again. The "TIME BANDITS" 60+ will be there.

The entire State of Texas is fortunate that you don't live in "friggin" Texas...."Pencilneck".......

PPR...."Safety gear"....use or don't use it.....If I pitched, I would wear some sort of gear.

Discussion: DBO/PPR rule - still protecting nobody

It becomes more evident every time you post that your "only issue" is to belittle and downgrade a "great game" that you have been unable to adjust to.

It's hell getting "old" isn't it?

Discussion: MATS - One and One Count

It's "only" slowpitch.....Your obivious disdain for the "game" explains your constant "flatulent" posts......"easy ways to eliminate rambling arguments of old men"....how about a way to eliminate yours "old man".

Umpiring's a tough job.....arguing with the umpire is part of the game.....it will always be there....at all levels.

Discussion: MATS - One and One Count

Mark, I'm glad you got the post back on track.......I too believe the 1-1 gives the pitcher an advantage. I believe the primary purpose of the 1-1 is to move the game along which it may or may not do. There are other ways to do that, like hustling. From a hitters view point....looking for your pitch is part of the concept. The 1-1 "somewhat" takes that away. A hitter is lucky if he gets "one" good pitch per bat with the 0-0 count. If the pitcher is really....he probaly won't get any with the 1-1, unless the pitcher makes a mistake.

Mark, the CST was great. A lot of dedicated ball players both young and older (even a couple in their 70's). I really respect those guys. No whinners in the crowd......You'll have to humor Dirty; he's a "tick turd" caught in a time warp:-)......although, he can be amusing if you don't take him seriously.....You have to realize that he's bitter because he can't compete at the tournament level no matter how good the equipment is.....he's scared of the competition and feels comfortable hiding in rec ball (plus the tournament teams cut him because of attitude and lack of prduction)...Now you can sit back and muse at his pompous posts:-)

By the way, does the ASA senior assoc. in your area allow any senior bats? At any rate...if you get to play where the senior bats are allowed....use them and draw your own conclusions.....Also, senior tournaments are every bit as much fun as when we played in the early days. I hope you are able to play in some. This website is a good place to let teams know you want to play. Good luck this season.

I agree Gary, the U2 doesn't make you an instant hitter or HR threat. Good post.

Discussion: Seniors and Home Runs (2)

Hey Mark, How have you been? The U2 is definitely too hot for 25 year olds plus the bat is so fragile...they would be breaking them constantly. "Most" players over 50 aren't going to hit the ball as hard as 25 or even 40 year olds. The extra "pop" of senior bats affords the "senior" players the opportunity to relive the "feeling" of driving the ball hard. The U2 is the most controversial of all of the Senior bats and will continue to be so....It is also the most popular. Lots of seniors use it and don't hit HR's. Also, lots of HR's are hit with bats other than U2's, there are some really good senior hitters. I love to hit with senior bats and welcome the increased intensity to the senior game that it brings, but I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of a 25 or even 40 year old using it. You will love 50+ softball......get the bat...but wait for 60 degrees befor you use it.

Our league starts March 10th and we have a tournament in Montgomery the weekend of the 14th... I can't wait.

"Special Players", I like that and it's true. The majority of players that play into their senior years don't waste their time finding fault with the game. They appreciate the game and everything it has to offer. I "Salute" all of the "Special" players.
