Discussion: An apology to Gary19

Sorry but I just cant let this chance go.

It will be simple and short, I promise.

Doc, isnt that like calling the kettle black? Remember you didnt get your nickname from eating Brocoli.

=)

Get well Big Boy!

Actually evolving means to develop, not necessarily to move forward.
And it is a form of progression in this case. Just not what some purists like seeing.
Like Scott wrote, "Forever evolving for better or worse".
In my opinion its still better then checkers.

Hockey gear and all.

The scoring wasnt down this weekend in Mesquite/St George, 25 to 35 runs was quite the norm for several teams in the Major division. Timberworks tossed up 105 in 3 games.

Discussion: To the BOD of USA

Gary19, stand on the pitchers rubber when Kennard, Irwin, Mike Adair, Mike Swearingen, or any number of the big hitters are taking BP and tell me that. (Hell even Joe Rinaldi) These guys like almost all players take their BP seriously, and use it like a game situation.
I like many would enjoy having you come out and play, just to see who you are and what you can do with a glove and bat.

Discussion: Why give an award if it doesn't reflect outcome

Hitt, I see your point, but who plays for the award? The achievement of winning is reward enough for many. Any award given should be nothing more then icing on the cake. Of course this is just my opinion.

Discussion: Should you be able to go for hits between the second baseman and shortstop

Two of the best I have had the pleasure of being around are the Westphal twins, they are about as good as there are.

Must be something to it huh Gary?
Regardless of the rules, the bats, the balls, or the constant ragging it takes, Senior Softball just keeps on thriving.
We must be idiots to continue to play under these ridicules circumstances, utterly idiotic.
Or just maybe, just maybe, we love to play it so much, we will overlook some of its misgiving. And j u s t p l a y. Odd concept isnt it?

Tim, maybe its because "he" is over 60. Sounds like its time for someone (J)to retire. =)

The middle is part of the field, as long as we arent going after the pitcher its in fair play. Armor up if thats what it takes to feel safe.

Discussion: Giving 5 runs to "inferior" teams

Mental defense works on fragile egos, egos that are necessary to have if one wants to be a successful professional, they are wound a bit tighter then the rest.
I believe Tiger would have been in a defensive mode to Nicholas or any of the others and vice versa, if they were behind in a tournament. That doesnt mean they would give up or stop trying, it just is what it is.
Similar to the giving up of 5 runs I suppose.

Discussion: Giving 5 runs to "inferior" teams

Gary tell that to some of Tiger Woods opponents in his dominate years. His play would throw his opponents into an automatic defensive mode.
Or when bowling, if your opponent throws strike after strike, you certainly would become defensive trying to figure out how to get in his head and slow his game down.
Mental defense?

Discussion: Giving 5 runs to "inferior" teams

Woody you knows its hard to offend me, especially coming from you or many of my other friends.
We felt the same way. We wouldnt ask for the runs from you, we are still in the development stage as a Major team and need to see where we fit in. So far we arent really fodder, but we arent a contender either.

Gary not many remember the Coach(s), and not many remember the players, even though they pulled off a major coop in 1980.

Discussion: Giving 5 runs to "inferior" teams

Two things Gary, one) this isnt a Professsional level sport, therefore shouldnt be compared to them, in this instance. Two) I seriously doubt Namath or Brooks (whoever that is) were ever offered points.

Woody, in our first game in PS against the 50 AAA team we didnt take the runs and as you know they stepped on us rather handily. In the second game against them we did take the runs and scraped out a win by 1 run, we should have been given runs playing your team heads up though =)
I think the point is to balance out better talent over a lesser team the runs are a good idea. Even though they rarily help the lesser team win.

Discussion: Giving 5 runs to "inferior" teams

IF the 3 players who are added were M+ players I think SSUSA did the right thing according to their rules. However IF the 3 players were not M+ players it seems they were in error.

The AAA team I play on wanted to add 1 M+ player who played 8 years for us before we moved to 60's, we had to move to Majors to have him back with us when he turned 60. He is by no means an impact player.

However I do understand what an enormous undertaking it would be to rate or rank every player who is register in each organization.

Omar K, he's a Dr. need I say more?

Docs like others on here, he could use a wornout broomstick and still hit em 400'

DH, dont forget to look at the Worth XXX, now that you have made your decision.

Richard Head, I thought we had this issue cleared up. Get the new Centurian and be happy once again.
As for the donuts.......I would never tell you to lay off them, only to share them. (Fat chance that'll happen)

All grassroot movements/issues start with rhetoric. Some never make it past that point, others like the occupy movements move ahead.
