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)

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.

Discussion: Update from USSSA National Convention

#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.

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,

Dave great you will post Winter Nationals.

Have you posted LV National results anyplace????

I could not be there this year to see the 70+ results and ask several times on this board who won and who placed, however, no one seemed to know. Have you got the paper work from the parks yet, about 6 weeks ago or so.

Thanks,
James

Discussion: Why so few AA teams

Boston - More and more teams seem to be getting moved to AAA than in the past from AA.
In 70+ SPA Nationals there were very few AA teams. However we only had 11 AAA teams.
I am not sure if there are less teams or most teams are getting rated at AAA.

The AA rated teams in most cases are very good teams.

Good question.

Discussion: QUESTION FOR UMPIRES

The answer is obivous "it is strike 1" because it was the 1st pitch to the batter who hit a ground ball that rolled out of play where the 1st baseman reached over the outofbound line and caught the ball.

Discussion: Warning on quality of Combat Bats

BS... I bought my Centenarian knowing THERE IS NO GUARANTEE......... Could care less, just as if I got a MIKEN ar a MELEE...
If you are an IDOIT, if you will say it should be cared for like if you are a hussine supporter.

THE BATS CALLED SENIOR DO NOT CARRY ANY WARRENTY>>>>>

Break it in correctly and you will reap many rewards..

Got most of this year out of the Centerarian and should get next year as I did break it in correctly.....

Discussion: Senior bat care and durability

Hey Webbie - I had 2 38oz Steeles bats, thaught at the time they were the greatest bats ever. Paid like $13 each for them. Even though they seemed to be solid Alum they would send the ball out of the park now and then.
Put them in back of garage and probably sold them as scrap alum for more than paid for them 25 years before. Hell, I think they were solid alum. They were a solid bat before the GSM or whatever the latest solid core bat is to be.

Have a great day W.. C
