Discussion: More 1-1 Count Talk

Hey Ja - IMO age groups do not have anything to do with this. I have never liked the 1-1 count. I like to hit the ball hard and the 1-1 can be a limiting factor on this. A low pitch that hits front of plate,zip, you now must just strike the next pitch that is close. Takes some fun out of game for me,myself, & I.

Keep the 4-3.............

HJ - Yes it is a possibility. I schedule a blood test for all the side effects of statins every 3 months. So far this has worked for me.

Discussion: Curious about Bat Bags

Worth from Direct Sports for $54.
Big wheels. Added support on back of bag for strength.
Will carry Shoes, 3 bats, glove, cold drinkin insulated pouch, and then you can add a ton of un-needed junk. And is made of heavy/strong material.

Only drawback for me is the Fence Hooks are inside a zipper, would prefer on outside of bag.

You probably can find many GOOD Strong bags out there.

Swing - I have a 107 swings with about half in sweet area. When you hit ball hard you do not hear a cracking sound like an Ultra II.
Guess I do not have the Black Centenarian broke in. It will really be hot when it gets broken in I guess.

Discussion: AAA Home Run Outs

By limiting AAA to 3 HR's then outs can be a big savings for the bruts that can hit 10 or 11 HR's per game... Now they can use a thickwalled bat after hitting the 3 HR's in the 1st inning and not have to put out big dollars buying 4 or 5 composit bats each year.

Simple solutions, inc.

Discussion: AAA Home Run Outs

Hey BigCat Seven -
You are shouting.....

I workout year around... WHy I like it... Helps golf and especially Sometimes Hitting A ball out of the park.

I see and know guys on other teams that hit a ball out quite often and they also hit line drives depending on the situtation. Could they be M or M+ players. Well May Be...

Nothing wrong with one guy getting to play on a local team and hitting a ball out now and then. Now, if your team has 4 or 5 guys that hit the ball out, then you are M or M+.

What happens to this local guy, hey (and I) gets walked quite a few times. That is life and Senior Softball.

There is a M+ 70 team in Texas that has no one to play, so for 2013 (dam that sounds strange 2013) I hear they have disbanded. Hopefully those guys can find a place to play.

See you down the road.

Discussion: AAA Home Run Outs

I am on the 3 hr then out for AAA side.

30 runs is 30 runs. It makes a difference how you get them.
If you get 10 or 15 or whatever via the HomeRun you have a M+ team. If a team is AAA the 3 and out gives the defense a chance to get outs verses a M or M+ team beating the crap out of a AAA team using HR's not giving the defense a chance to get an out.

That gentlemen is the reason for 3 and OUT.

JMO (but it is a fair opinion lol)

Discussion: AAA Home Run Outs

jmo - agree that 3 hr then out for AAA is a good rule.

If my team had 4 hr hitters and 4 that can hit 1 most games then my team is definitely a major ball club. jmo....

Now on the lighter side a solution to M+ having no one to play you could combine the M and M+ and make them use wood bats. Then you could have unlimited HR's and a 7 run per inning limit. This is about the only way I can see to actually combine the 2 groups.

I have played against legit M and M+ and always got beat by the legit guys because every player could hit, field, throw and run very good.

merry christmas to all

Discussion: major plus teams

taits - I do not have an answer, whoever makes a decision really needs to think about it.

If you get so good your team is dominate then U move up, break up or move down 5 years. In some cases it would not be fair to the 5 year younger team to be forced to compete against the team moved down..

Not Easy.

If 6 M+ players kept.
Who will be the new replacement players?
Could be a swap with a sister M+ team. Would this be Good?
So, may need some thaught if this direction is taken.

A tough path so our fellow friends in M+ can have the joy of playing Senior Softball.

Discussion: Update from USSSA National Convention

stick8 - a good chance more senior teams would play in USSSA ,

The only question I have is how many senior teams now compete.
Do they already have senior play, and, is it very well attended now? This is a problem to get it started.

#19 - Every pitcher I hit(again never on purpose) was with an aluminum bat. With the composits I make sure not to hit up the middle.

The aluminum bats gets the ball to the pitcher in less than a second. The pitchers more in danger are new pitchers.
Real experienced pitchers seem to have an uncanny reaction to a hit ball.

#19 - I did not bring this up. I am not against having a screen either.

The need of a screen?? I have hit pitchers (not on purpose), I have hit balls just beside a pitchers head and the pitcher reacts after the ball goes by his head. The pitcher probably only has 4 tenths of a second to possibly half a second to see the ball and react to a HARD hit ball.

I really do not like to see anyone hit. Sometimes it takes many surgeries to correct a facial hit.

I support a screen. here are the rules....

batted ball hits screen then no pitch.....

miss-hit ball should not be an out.

pitcher is protected,,,,
if I decide to hit a ball out of the park
and hit it low at the pitchers head at 70+
years old he is going to be down.

So I think the screen should be the rule and if the screen is hit it is just a no pitch.

And yes to you POS's g19 I pitched in the young league until 59 years of age and took their best and only got hit on foot 1 time.

Discussion: fort myers

birdie - thanks.
I tried the Tour tab then LV/SSUSA sept 28 tour in LV. For me guess my computer will not load the posted results.
SPA posted the bracket diagram with teams and scores fairly quick. I could track the team that beat us on to the championship.

If someone can see the 70+ AAA rusults can you copy and post here.

Many thanks,
James
