Discussion: 1 and 1 pitch count

Pttcher22 I can vouch for attending the meeting. About 10 years ago myself and another gentleman attended the meeting in Tucson we wanted to pitch the 40 division. SSUSA at the time had a sparsely attended 40 tournament more as a side show. We got an audience in front of all the associations including UTRIP, ASA, SPA and SSUSA. Our proposal was to offer the division full time including ratings, and offering memberships. We got laughed out except for one SSUSA. ASA at the time was the king of the 40 division. In 2005 I think we had 5 or 6 teams in the 40's this year it was probably their fastest growing division and probably had well over 50 teams. They obviously listened. If you want the 1-1 count do what they told in the post we did and it worked.

Discussion: WHO ARE CURRENTLY THE MOST POWERFUL HITTERS IN SENIOR SOFTBALL

Steve remember Derek Williams from Vegas heard he turned 50 and started hitting with the seniors. I forget who told me he was hitting some jaw dropping bombs.

Traits revolving power outages? We're like two feet from the hoover dam we have probably the most stable power situation in the country. I've lived in Vegas for 12 years and don't remember ever losing power.

Discussion: WHO ARE CURRENTLY THE MOST POWERFUL HITTERS IN SENIOR SOFTBALL

How about another spin on this. Senior softball I believe works with the Wounded Warriors. There are 3 tournaments in the next 4-6 months that are well attended Phoenix, Florida and the Tournament of Champions. Maybe the brothers attend each and have a home run derby with all proceeds going to the Wounded Warriors. Win/Win for everyone. Sounds more productive than posting unproductive stuff.

Discussion: Anyone find relief for piriformis syndrome?

Bogie a couple things I do. I use a foam roller daily you can find them at any good sporting goods store, when I was in rehab it was Pilates based I swear by Pilates and google the figure 4 stretch it really helps stretch the muscles in that area. Good luck. Tony advice is really good same principle as using a foam roller except the balls go deeper.

Discussion: Shoulder replacement

Birdie curious what your doctor said. I'm going to have a shoulder replacement sometime in the next few months. I made the decision to go through with it after consulting with a top shoulder doctor in Los Angeles. I'm working with doctors at the Kerlan-Jobe clinic. I don't have a set date that will be determined in mid January. I'm working right now to up my conditioning, come in at a light weight with the hopes of speeding up the recovery time. If you decided to have the surgery it would certainly be helpful probably to both of us to stay in contact misery loves company or something like that. I got nothing left of my shoulder joint for conventional surgery, I have metal in there from a previous surgery 30 years ago and it migrated the MRI revealed that between the spurs and metal everytime I moved the arm it cut something. Frampton your thoughts were appreciated when making my decision.

Discussion: sick players at Sunset Park

It may not be Sunset. I live in Las Vegas there is something going around the Valley just as you are describing. I have several Doctor friends and they are internal medicine and they are seeing this all over. Someone I work with 30 years old just spent a day in the hospital with the exact same symptoms described and was diagnosed with a GI tract viral infection (lower intestine). He started with symptoms Tuesday landed in the hospital Thursday and yesterday started to eat solid foods.

Discussion: Growth of the 40 division

I was looking at the number of teams in the 40 division coming to Las Vegas this year and was happy to see that 45 teams are listed. SSUSA has done an amazing job at growing this age group over the past 8 years. I played in the 40 division in 2005 and we had 5 teams. Out of curiosity I checked the ASA website and they had 33 teams for their year end event in 2005. This year ASA had 5 and SSUSA now is the tournament to attend. A number of years a group of us were invited to speak about the 40's at the senior convention in Tucson and we pitched the 40's to SSUSA, SPA, LVSSA, UTRIP and ASA which was the king of the 40's back then. The biggest excuse we heard from the associations (except ASA) was that 40's were not seniors (probably true), our response was eventually we would be and if you build it they would come and more importantly stay with whomever figured it out. Looking back the 40 division was my favorite time to play.

Discussion: When to postpone shoulder surgery?

I have had 3 in the past all before 1985. At this point I have limited range of motion not much over 90 degrees. Last year I went to a shoulder specialist the X-rays showed severe arthritis. He said I need a replacement but he wouldn't do it until I was past 65. He suggested a cleanup and after scheduling it I backed away. I play as much golf as I want, I have a very active and rigorous workout program in which I do use the shoulder. Can't throw a lick and really don't play much anymore. In the words of my doctor no one has ever died from a sore shoulder. He told me if I walked on my arms my quality of life would be terrible. Any exercise below 90 degrees including swinging I have no issues and you probably would not know my right arm is bad. I have also taught myself to do a lot of things with my left arm. Good luck

Discussion: Lower Back Pain Home Remedies

Dave an easy thing you can do is buy a large stability ball and if you sit a lot say at home on the computer or in an office alternate sitting on the stability ball for say 30-45 minutes and then back to your chair. I replaced my computer chair at home with a stability ball. Because your bouncing around it promotes blood flow. Easy and cheap solution to sitting in a chair constantly.

Discussion: Why Do Some Guys Lose It Sooner

I can't speak to the losing it end but as too rest I've had to rethink what appropriate rest is due to the type of activities I'm involved with. From a training standpoint I found that a heart rate monitor has significantly changed the way I train. Once you know what your heart is doing the group I train with have significantly increased our workload. I'm training with a 30 year old who has gone from 270 lbs to 200 lbs in 5 months with tremendous increases in strength and athletic movement. We both sought out advice and rest is quite important. We train very hard 3 days a week with complete rest 2 days and then light activity the other 2. I personally would not attempt to play softball on the 3 days we train hard. We have also noticed we can't eat the same. Proper rest and nutrition became very integral to what we are attempting to accomplish.

Discussion: TOURNAMENT WINNER AUTO MOVEUP

Mango good to see you guys in San Clemente. We enjoyed the two games with you guys. For those that haven't played Somerville I have played against most of these guys for almost 10 years. They were Courtesy Auto as a 40 team and aged up. They added a few guys, Mango correct me but all but two of your guys are within 40 miles of each other. We had a good conversation about the major/major plus debate. It's doable I believe with the right thought that doesn't break up teams. I don't think teams should be broken up at our age. Mango you and I had pretty good seats to last weekends games. What I saw was 4 athletic teams with some differences, some were subtle, some big, a lot of Hr's some really bad pitching. The big difference was not in the hitting but the fielding and pitching.

Discussion: Tournament Prizes

The SOCAL players should remember the old A&V tournaments. I played in a few of those and the winners would get a nice set of custom printed shirts. As a team we gave the artwork and we were able to add a jersey that we could wear in tournaments. We put the team name, player number with our artwork and added an additional jersey for those 2 and 3 day tournies. In these hard times not having to pay for an additional jersey would go a long with teams I would believe.
