Discussion: 2013 Classic Spring Training

Bruce, Returned triumphantly to his form of winning several prizes during the Banquet.

Several guys won multiple prizes (SOFTBALL GEAR). In reality the prize winners (won) enough to cover thier travel and the camp fee.

Several guys and gals that attended the camp were able to hit enough BP to last them for 6 weeks or more in just 2.5 days. Thanks again for Curt and his staff and all of the campers for making this week special for ME - "A professed Softball Junkie"

By the Way TG69 several guys saw the glove at last years Classic Spring Training - Like Mini-Me and Leroy, Bruce and several others - They all asked the same question " What was I going to do with It"

I heard that he had a glove and it got lost on an airplane or that someone grabbed it at a tournament (by mistake of course) He also had his name, address and phone number sewn into the left index finger socket of the glove and is waiting on a Good Samaritan to return it - So that he can actively presue his passion of defensive excellence.

Guys and Gals,
It is only a few weeks until I head to Jacksonville to Hit BP until my hand bleed for 3 wonderful days.

This is an oppurtunity for any one to pickup some valuable hitting, fielding and pitching tips from a group of great guys that will be at the camp.

Curt and Audie Hollis, Ed , Davy Randy Parker and the rest of the local staff do a great hosting and organizational job at this camp. Last year it was a blast for me I met some great guys like Maddog, Mr,Griffith, some very fast and strong Young Guns. The camp is for all skill levels - Some of us get to Jax early on thursday and leave late on Sunday - We are the "Crazy Softball Junkies"

Check out the CST website and the low cost!

I hope to see you in JAX

Discussion: Big D Headed to Cleveland , Ohio -

Guys, the morale was at a alltime LOW when we had BP in Brookpark Fields on Friday at 10 Am. Becuase Gary19 did not Show up!!

The guys we struggled thru Batting Practice "any how" without Gary19. It was a pleasure to hit with Mighty Mike and the Gang.
I would like to thank them again for thier Hospitallity once again. Mike the "Sweet Swinger" as he was known in the Day - Showed several signs of a good comeback

We talked about all of the guys that are not with us anymore - for one reason or another. We encourage all Men our age to get involved in a daily activity and stay in shape , whether you are playing Big Time Softball or Just walking, biking, basketball or just working out in the gym Please Guys Do something and live longer. Gary19 maybe we see you somewhere down the road?????

Discussion: 2012 CLASSIC SPRING TRAINING

I just returned from Jacksonville Classic Spring training hosted by Curt Hollis and his staff!

I met some good people (120+) including but not limited to "Mad Dog" , all of the guys all gals had a good time - There was plenty of BP. , A great banquet, lots of tall tales, several late nights, several early mornings - Then the best of all - NO RAIN!!!

Sat 75 Degrees
Sun 80 Degrees

Several prizes were given out at the banquet - the least of all 15-20 Free Bats!!!!!!!!!. Homeruns were plentious - I even witnessed Mad Dog hitting a couple of Taters!! WOW

Yes there was a lot of base hitting going on also - Many more games are won by base hitting - Than homeruns!!

But it feels good to hit them!!

See ya - Bruce, Mike, leroy, Tiny, Ed Reed, Joe and all of the many many more! Have a great 2012 Season

Discussion: Faults of SPA

Not a good Idea to bring the Major Teams to Exchange Park in Pensacola!

Major Teams at any age group have OUTGROWN "275-280" Foot fences at Exchange Park. It is harder for a Major Caliber Player to keep the Ball in the Park than it is for a AAA Player to Hit it out of the Park.

The results of this was witnessed in some of the 50 Major Teams games Guys trying to hit base hits " This makes it extremely Dangerous for Pitchers and Infielders!!!.

Senior Men 50 and above are not "Fat Beer Bellied Old Guys of the Past"

50 - 65yr old guys are now stronger and more fit than ever before - In some cases we are in better shape than 40 year old guys!!

So don't make rules that in-danger pitchers and in-fielders - unless you are a Pitcher or In-Fielder

My 2 cents
