Hitman, where are you? I think the general consensus is you expected too much from these guys.

Hitman, I think it is inconsiderate of them as they could have copied you on the email. However, these guys were buddies before you came into the picture so their bond is stronger. With that said, you guys should recruit some of your time tested friends who are good ball players. There are a couple of them looking for a team in the Capital City and a couple in the Atlanta area that are in your age class. You can probably figure out who they are. This action is not uncommon in today's society. Gary19, I have three daughters also who are athletes. A challedging landscape but rewarding.

Discussion: Southern Chapionship/ Birmingham

Cannot blame IDC as they made a prudent decision. It was not likely they could beat the Wild Bunch twice to win the tourney so take second place and the TOC berth and be pleased. The Wild Bunch with their former major+ players and 5 or 6 Hall of Famers can be proud they beat up on a bunch of AAA teams. What did that really prove? Hey, Wazoo, check the spell check next time.

As of 11 AM this morning, Wild Bunch, IDC and Louisana Legends were left. Legends beat TAG Team first game this morning, then the Legends beat Georgia/Alabama Masters and was to play the loser of the Bunch/IDC game.

Discussion: GBA WILL BE BORN JULY 4TH

Bill: I understand your defense and effort to build a facility. I work with imports/exports daily and do understand what it all encompasses. However, I think Pricer hit it on the head that the marketing introduction was premature. I know several guys who has stated unless the bat is something special, they will not buy another one. Birdie: I get responses from my email also but it is always the same reason. That gets old. I sincerely do hope the bat is worth the wait and is special. Just many of the troops have gotten restless.

Discussion: Old South Result

Older facility but fields were in decent condition. No water in dugouts, finally put one cooler per field at the scorer's platform. One ump even in championship game but from what I saw , most were pretty good. Hopefully more teams next year.

Discussion: A Fist Full of Dollars For a Few Dollars More

For the 60s and 65s (which there is only one 65 team) a combined round robin where the '5' teams play each other once and then a single elimination championship bracket on Sunday.

Discussion: NSA Senior Worlds Bats Permitted

Hitman: This touney has gotten worse every year for the past several years. This is one of the reasons. It would have already disappeared if not for the 'local' teams and by that I mean the teams located within reasonable driving distance.

Hombree: I agree with you 100%. That is a ridiculus bracket. Talked to another player who played there last week and he had the same opinion.

Discussion: What is Senior Softball to you?

I agree with all and it gives me an opportunity to continue to play in my sixites against players my age. Still play occassionally with the young guys but am careful where I play, definitely no 3rd base.

I will believe it when I see it. 'Been waiting' a long time. I saw his post on the other board. He got a little defensive with the one guy.

Taits is correct that an email addy would be good. Also, where are you located in Bama? There is a 50+ team in Montgomery named the Swarm. I am sure a board brother from that area can tell you who to contact. Maybe call Lagoon Park in Montgomery and ask them 334-271-7016.

Discussion: SPA Montgomery Teams

We have had a lot of rain recently and it is projected to rain Monday & Tuesday,therefore; all of you outfielders better bring extra cleats & several pair of socks. The outfield will be wet and mushy particularly near the fence. Lagoon was built on a swamp and has a high water table.

Secret is correct, the teams are posted on the website. I think it was 29 teams covering five age groups.

Good luck everyone!

Discussion: NSA

Dog: Isn't NSA the worse Nationals to play in? Boaz's fields are good but Gadsden is the pits. It has dwindled down to a small number of teams. I could understand cutting back on expenses and skipping NSA.

Ditto Dawg: I played against Tony and his Swarm teanm several times this year. He difinitely will be missed by them. Good for us as he beat this season with a big bottom of the 7th hit. Same here, best of luck bro.

Discussion: Do solar bat warmers work??

armiho211: Warm bats and cold balls. Hot balls turn to mush.

There are some solar bat warmers on ebay under 'heavy duty bat bag/solar warmer':

Discussion: SPA MAJOR NATIONAL,July 15,16 & 17th

Wazoo: Let's face it, on any given weekend your team could play major+. You just happened to have a bad weekend on the National tourney weekend. When your team only scores 11 and 4 runs in their final two games, that means you weren't hitting. That is quite surprising considering the hitters you have. The competition was solid all the way through with no weak sisters like you normally have in the area tourneys. DoubleL: I sure he is talking about some local teams such as one that was to for a better choice of words 'to affraid to come and play in the Nationals'.

Discussion: DALTON, GA. TOURN. AND CAR RENTALS

mad dog: I don't think there is a short cut as to say but if you take I59 to Gadden and pick up US 411, it will take you across the mountain and tie into I75 right above Cartesville, GA which is about halfway between Atlanta & Dalton. A scenic drive but only about half of it is 4 lane. Actually when you get south of Rome, GA you can take GA 53 and it connects with I75 about 30 miles out of Dalton. There are some other routes but I slow and 2 lane roads.
