Discussion: SPA VS SSUA

Well, I stand corrected. Just got a shirt today promised by SPA. Now I guess I have nothing to complain about. Hope more teams schedule this next year. Golden Eagle in Sparks is the best facility I've seen. Again well run tourney.

Discussion: SPA VS SSUA

I played in the SPA Reno tourney, and had a very good time. Yes the turn-out was poor, but the event was still run very well. We won our division (50 AAA) and received a great... photo op. That was it, promised a few things but, well, nothing. Too bad, I was looking forward to next year if more teams would go. Not sure now.
Don't get me wrong, I don't play for the prizes, play for fun. But I don't like being lied to either. Like I said it was a fun tourney, that's why I'm on the fence about next year (if there is one).

Donnie.

Pricer you're right, shouldn't call names, I just stooped to his level.
But was I wrong? No, he proves it every time he posts.

Oh jeez not another one. What do you want? Are you jealous you didn't get invited to the White House with the Giants? It's only softball, we play for the great fun of it. Or at least I do.

Uh, Gary have you actually played against Joe? If you have, then you are just being a dick. If you haven't then you are just being a dick. So either way...

Discussion: Waivers

Pricer I guess you are just referring to the pitchers waiver. But every league and utrip tourny I play in has you sign some sort of waiver, you probably do too. No big deal right? Like AI said it's an attempt to combat the lowest form of life, the lawyers.

Discussion: South Bend SPA

So is it just the South Bend tourny that's the problem, or all of SPA. There's one in Sparks in Sept. we are thinking of going to. Can anyone expand on this? Never played in SPA before.
Thanks.

Discussion: 40 core 375 balls

Biggest piece of crap ball I've ever played with. Two tourneys last year, 75-80 degrees, not fun. I've never hit a 52-275, I'm interested to see if it is any better. Have my doubts but who knows. I got to see for myself.

Discussion: SSWS in Palm Springs/Reebok Bat

Hitt, if that was Merced then I was talking to him for a while. I didn't realize that bat had 700 hits on it, not bad. He hits hard and as the day went on he warmed up to it alot (sorry I didn't get his name).

Discussion: SSWS in Palm Springs/Reebok Bat

Joe did you see any GBA's out there?
I saw one in Merced this weekend. Seemed like a good bat. U2 like? Not from what I saw, but a nice bat even though it had a crack (the owner said after 50 swings, and a replacement is in the mail)

Discussion: Senior Softball is a Joke

Senior softball is far from a joke. Like Joe said there are a few issues but that's it. Just got back from Carson City, finished fourth, hurt my arm, but wouldn't trade the experience for anything. Great times.
The only thing that's a joke around here is you and your great English skills. Did you proof read your message before you sent it? Maybe try put down the bottle before typing.

Garyheifnner if that's all you have to show your grand kids then your kind of pathetic.

See it's easy to insult people sitting at a keyboard. Why is everything so negative on here?

Discussion: Cheap awards given out in Reno

Yeah does seam a little cheap; but we're not pros. From your description it sounds like you guys had a lot of fun. Any vacation to a place like this is going to cost $$.

Discussion: Be very careful what you wish for

Taits, a couple of years ago we were using 44\400 balls. Now we use 44\375, isn't that a compromise? A good one, but still a compromise. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Discussion: Individual awards for senior players

Larry that's why ssusa gives them to the manager, so he (or the team)can decide on the criteria. All the teams I've played on have always gone on over-all performance. Giving to just the best hitter is weak.

Dude why did you start a new thread?
Didn't like the title?
Or do you just like see your name at the top.

Discussion: Individual Awards

Paco13 said it very well. I enjoy challenging myself to play the best I can, and shoot for one of those patches. If I just wanted to drink beer and screw around I would just stay home playing league. For me, going to tournys playing with and against the best and maybe earning an All Tourny patch is what it's about. I like the way ssusa does it, leaving it up to the qualifying team to decide. If you have jealousy on your team then maybe a team meeting is in order. This only leads to much bigger issues, been there done that.
