Topic: Tournaments
Discussion: Houston National Senior Games - interested in feedback

I was part of team from TN that competed in the Houston national senior olympics in Houston (60's). 13 teams in all. We played some real hit factory powerhouses (San Antonio Classics and Legends, Springfield IL, Athletic Attic/Bathtub, LA Legends 60's, Jenks out of Hendersonville NC). Other teams were closer to our level. A classy bunch of competitors all and it was a pleasure to take the field against them. No complaints whatsoever about that.

From the standpoint of tournament organizational/logistics/and communication, however, this tournament was probably the most pitifully run I've ever seen. It was especially disappointing considering the pretty big money each player spent to get to Houston and play. I won't go into details here, but I'd be interested in hearing from other guys who played in Houston to see what they think of how the event at League City was run.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Reebok Senior Bat

Reebok Melee broke in half in the sweet spot during BP today, the day before we leave for the Burlington SPA qualifier. By "cracked in half" I mean the top five inch section of the barrel was hanging on to the rest of the bat by an inch or so of fiber strands. I've cracked bats before, including an Ultra and a Macenko Senior Combat, but the Reebok flat out disintegrated. I mean, come ON! Bought it from Anaconda a couple of months ago. Very disappointed.

Discussion: need a new knee

Thanks very much for the additional feedback, Murray, and the best of luck in your rehab. I'm inclined to go the way you did when the time comes. Have read as much as I can in the last 24 hours about Makoplasty unicompartment replacement (based on your posting) and really think it's the way to go assuming the MD in Atlanta concludes I'm a good candidate after he takes a gander at my knee. Just got to get through the '11 season as best I can. Tks again.

Discussion: need a new knee

I'm 65 and with left knee uni-compartment OA, no cartilege left there. As my various orthopods have said I am a candidate for a partial knee after the '11 season, I was very interested in MurrayW's experience with Makoplasty, the robotics-assisted replacement surgery. Would love to hear more from MurrayW about this, or from any other ballplayers who have had this particular procedure. Closest docs who do this procedure are in Atlanta, and it would be worth the trip(s) if players who have had this are able to get back to the game. Thanks.

Discussion: Player looking for 60+ leagues and tournaments - East Tennessee and surrounding states

JoeD; Thanks for the input. I'm relatively new to the area. I played as a fill in for one of Perry Reynolds' regulars in an exhibition game last fall in Knoxville for his 65+ team, the Stars. Perry saw some of what I can do. Understand the Stars are in a four team league with just a few younger guys grandfathered in. Scuttlebut last fall was that they may look starting a Knoxville area 60+ league. I'm in the Tellico league, so maybe there's a possibility of a line into Knoxville through that group. Thanks much for the lead, Joe.
