Discussion: Looking for a team in SE Michigan

Bill:

There are a lot of travel teams and leagues in Michigan but to narrow your search you will have to list your age and what city (near-by) where you live.

After that you should get some good responses.

Another option is to go to the horizontal menu on this page and click on leagues. Then go to the Michigan area on the map, click it and you will find a few Michigan league contacts.

Hope this helps you.

They will probably have to wait awhile before facing him..heard he dislocated his shoulder patting himself on the back.

I know that is the order of finish of the top three teams (26 of them) but he is also looking for the finish of the other three teams that were in the Syracuse tournament.

Try this web page for the ISA order of finish (no scores)..they list the order of finish in each group (no record or scores)..the point total on the right shows you who finished in what order.

As for the SSUSA Northeast Championship at Syracuse..they only had 29 teams and they list the finish of 26 teams..with the process of elimination you can probably determone where the other three finished.

Again no scores for either but you can't have everything.

Discussion: "PRO" Softball late 1970's & early 1980's

The AMERICAN PROFESSIONAL SLOW PITCH LEAGUE (APSPL) began with 12 teams in 1977 and played through 1980. In 1981-1982 the UNITED PROFESSIONAL SOFTBALL LEAGUE (UPSL) was in existance.

Looks like a beer and pizza league with team names being DETROIT (LITTLE) CEASARS; MILWUAKKE SCHLITZ, CINCINNATTI SUDS; KY BOURBONS, etc.

You can go to the web page:
http://www.angelfire.com/sd/slopitch/pro.html
for more info on the teams and some players.

Discussion: What makes it a "Senior" bat???

Shelbyville (36 teams) and THEE Buckeye Classic (77) were full..DAYTON (32), SYLVANIA(36)and COLUMBUS (40) could have taken a few more. As I mentioned, all five were AA and AAA events.

Gary:

I can give you five tournaments who turned down teams, they were DAYTON FIRST FLIGHT; THEE BUCKEYE CLASSIC; HEART OF OHIO; SYLVANIA and HOOSIER CLASSIC.

Teams were turned down for various resaons but mainly ratings.

I can understand your problem..been there, done that.

I am sure there are others on this board who also have gone through the change from baseball and fast pitch to slow pitch and also have swung those table leg 38-0z...If not they do not know what they missed.

He probably had been doing it for awhile. I saw a guy who played minor A ball (penn/N.Y. League)try to make the switch when playing his first slow pitch game. He struck out three times ...throw his bat into the woods and I never saw hime again.

It isn't easy to make the adjustment right away...your hands are always ahead of your hips. Does make you a good opposite field hitters as you tend to try and hold back your swing.

Baseball and fast pitch about the same...do you remember the first time you swung at a ball in slowpitch after playing baseball? I thought I was going to break my back when I made the switch from fast pitch.

I was using one of those old HOWARD FURNITURE silver lead pipe 38 oz and I couldn't stop my swing.

I'm sure you probably had the same experience.

Wouldn't have that many teams in OHIO...we have to push to draw 77 for THEE Buckeye Classic each year.

The neat thing about the SSUSA tournament in VEGAS drawing 400 + teams 9/28-10/7 is the HUNTSMAN GAMES in ST. GEORGE will draw 350+ in the following 10/8-10/20 span.

That is over 800 senior softball players taking part in two tournments played back-to-back.

Speaks pretty highly of both organizations SSUSA and HUNTSMAN to put together world tournaments like this.

I would be nearly 200 of the teams playing in VEGAS will also be makingb the trip to ST.GEORGE the following week to play.

Question for SWING for THE FENCES, how long did you play fast pitch softball before you switched to slow pitch. Sounds like you were a pretty active player in your younger days. I made the switch at "45", game got too fast for me.

Discussion: Looking for a Team and information

Ray:

I was checking senior leagues in Georgia and couldn't find any within 100 miles. What I am doing is giving you the web page of the ATLANTA METRO LEAGUE which not only has a good senior league but a very good travel team.

Might be too far for you to travel but the name I give you may be able to help you find a closer league

web site - atlantaseniorsoftball.com

contact - Howard Wilcox 678-469-1083

Hope this helps. Good luck and a special thank you for serving.

Discussion: Tournament Prizes

Contrary to popular belief, the associations do not rate the same way.

There are teams rated AAA in SPA which are major in SSUSA; there are teams rated major in SPA which are AAA in SSUSA and ISSA rates anyway they want.

I do think in most cases SSUSA and SPA work together based on results of the WORLD championships..the only difference would be winners in WORLD tournaments with three-teams or less in a division.

Since we have a SPA tournament we use SPA ratings to determine what rating to use for each team. We do bend a little on some new teams (which should be AAA by SPA and SSUSA) if thier last few tournaments they have really been destroyed. I will call the SPA office and in a conference call with RIDGE and three other directors try to get some ratings changed.

I do know of a couple of instances where teams where also rated down in other associations in order to get them to come to a tournamemt and fill a bracket and the changes didn't have that much of an impact on the tournament results.

You could probably find teams in each association (SSUSA and SPA) which are doifferent from each other but each has a system they stand by to rate teams. Since both systems are somewhat different, occasionally ratings may be different.

Hope that answers your question.
