Ed,
Congrats to you on the recovery. Good luck in the future. There was a guy at the managers meeting that had just beat prostate cancer and had the idea that cancer survivors would wear a patch so others could approach them if in the same situation. Thought it was a great idea,maybe you could get a hold of him through senior sotfball. God Bless you always. Thanks for the post.

Harry,Great to see you again. Wish we could have talked more. I'm working on TOC,hope we can get there.
Tommy, Thanks!
Greg and John, We owe a lot of how we did to the competition we played this year. Playing teams like Master Collision,KC Kids,NorCal Merchants,
Minn Masters,Texas 60s in Reno and
Vegas prepared us for the Worlds. It's great to see and play against class
competition and friends. Thanks again for the kind words.

Congrats, GSF!!

Marv,
Thanks to you and Donnie for a well run tourney. The staff,umpires and grounds crew made it a fun weekend.
Reworking the fields after every two game was a nice touch. We were still on time for all of our games. Our schedule will have us back in Oct. and Dec. Thanks again,you're doing great.

vinniec, try the Gold Dust in CC. It's
reasonable,clean and 5 minutes from the
fields at Centennial park. Right off the freeway. Also,make a trip to Viginia City;make sure you have a DD.
you'll have a great time.

Discussion: What Would George Hancock Think?

Who is this "they" that is making you dress up like a hockey goalie and making the infield look like a miniature golf hole? You can play anywhere You want in this country,under any rules You want to play. Do you have a problem with freedom of choice? Do the young guys move too fast for you? Remember, the game started out with a sock and a stick. Times change,rules and rule makers change. It's not the worst thing in the world. I've never met a senior player with a fragile ego,but I know one who desperately wants someone,anyone to listen to him.

the country. Worth the trip.

curveball and diehard you're priceless! Don't young people have Nationals also! We must stop this word from being used. While were at it we should stop people from disposing of their OWN income.

Discussion: Teams Being Bumped Up

I agree. Mid season bumps force you to start moving players to stay competitive in the higher division. Tough to win in Majors with AAA power. Being on the edge of being moved up is a consideration when it comes to entering tourneys. Moving teams during a season should be well thought out as to how well the team will do in the higher bracket.

Harry,
Great to meet you and Ross. Congrats on your finish. Tri State is a great team with a classy bunch of guys,losing to them is no disgrace. I was glad you and the Bucs could combine along with the Sweet and Merchant teams. Dave did a great job
getting us on the fields under tough circumstances. It was a great trip,playing against good,classy competition. Good luck to NVF this year,I'm on to 60s.

Discussion: Thanks Carl Gustafson

I guess I should look at the SSUSA home page before going to the message board. Carl's article is listed under the heading "How heart attacks transform life". Should have known SSUSA would be ahead of me on this subject. Take time to read the article.

Discussion: Thanks Carl Gustafson

I received my Senior Softball newspaper yesterday. It contains a fine article by Carl about his heart attack last year. I would say it's a must read for all players and would urge SSUSA to post it somehow. I know Carl from the Top Gun Lionsheads Tourneys he use to host in San Diego.
Thanks,Carl! You have done a service to all, and you now have made us aware there's more to playing softball than
just winning and losing. God Bless you.
Don't ever quit with your contributions,and I can't wait to see you playing softball again.

Harry,
Where are you guys staying? We going to hit afternoons Wed. and Thurs.
Brian Warner lives in Lakeland and is going to get back to me on good places to hit. I'll forward it to you.
We're at the Hilton Garden Inn and a La Quinta Inn in Lakeland. Like I said on another post,we've got a great bunch of teams in the 55 golds. Ross had a good idea.

Softball6, The site is Cacti 35th Infantry. There is also a link to the 4th Division and the 25th Tropical Lightening Division. We have guys from the 2/9th Arty plus support guys like the helo pilots. Our unit is still ative and deployed in Afganistan. So we support our younger guys,and fly in a couple of actives for the weekend.
Some are on their third and fouth deployments. Keep them in your prayers.
You might be able to find some info on the 3/12th on those sites. John

Is there a place to hit in Lakeland during the day? We're coming in for TOC and would like to find a place to hit in the afternoons Feb 9-11 without the parks and rec hassles. Email is on my info page.

Discussion: Team Looking For TOC Players

db14,sorry, but I have to ask these experts. Is it OK to replace injured players? Believe or not, SSUSA challenges
every roster change. We lost two players to knees and one who has played with us for the last two years,but didn't play in that qualifier. What do you do? Not go?
Forget that! We petitioned for two players from the same level. We're not
adding Major+ guys. I'm still trying to figure out the problem with what time of year this special tourney should be played? Who cares. Are you going? Doug, I hope you get your guys.

John,
Went to the same school 68/69.
Are you guys playing in Anny on the 31st?
southpaw,the league/tourney options in SoCal are endless. You can play somewhere everyday of the week if you want to deal the traffic. Retired this
year from the PO.
