Discussion: Midwest Championships - WHAT YOU GET FOR YOUR $495.00 ENTRY FEE

I have a question for SSUSA staff. Why did the teams not receive a partial refund? I know you saved a lot of money from the games that were not played and I am sure you did not pay for the field rental on sat. Some kind of good faith refund is in order or will this be standard practice to cancel as much of a tournament as you can when it rains. This can be called the Tournament Director Bonus.

In the 50s OG's from Louisville beat Detroit Jags. In the 55 major Schones beat Pace. In the 55AAA Brickyard 55 beat AMR 55.

SLUGGERS13 there used to be a link on this site for the forms you need but it is gone. The SPA site has the forms on their site along with the directions. You need at least three tournaments listed along with a detailed letter explaining why you think you should be moved down. Good luck.

Ther may be a few downsides to this tourney (70' bases, gate fee, flip flop) but there is one guarantee we will play this weekend. I have played all day and all night in steady rain and the field are playable. They have very few rainouts.

Nancy will we be charged $3 per day to get in and will the flip flop rule be used?

Discussion: Does anyone here play ball with their son(s)?

My son and I played together on a mission team called Sports Reach and went on 6 mission trips most were to Florida, Mississippi and Alabama where we went to a prison each day and played 4 to 5 games for 30 to 40 for the week. In 2002 we went with Sports Reach to play in the first slowpitch softball tournament in China. We beat the team from China and Tiawan which were there National baseball teams. It was a great time playing with my son except I always played the outfield and he played first. Softball is the one of the only sports that a father and son can compete.

Discussion: Rest in Peace Jimmy Clark

He was working on his car and it fell on him. We never know when life will end. Don't waste what little time we as seniors have left.

Discussion: Rest in Peace Jimmy Clark

Senior softball has lost a great player. Jimmy Clark of Louisville, Ky passed away yesterday after a tragic accident. Jimmy played the last year with the 60 major team The Fossils out of Illinois and with 55AAA Metro Star out of Louisville. He had previously played with Jim and Joes out of Louisville where he won 4 world tournaments. He won several home run contests at the SPA world tournament. He truly loved the game and would travel anywhere to play. He loved to practice and we spent many a day hitting his garbage can full of balls. He will be missed by many as his heart was as big as his love for the game of sofball. He was a good Christian man who was a deacon at Valley View baptist church and taught 3 yr olds in Sunday School.Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Elizabeth and his grandson Zach who lived with him. Jimmy touched many lives with his love of the game of softball, his devotion to his family and his faith in God. He will be missed by many but not forgotten.

I agree Maddog maybe SSUSA should step up and suspend some of the repeat offending posters.

Discussion: History of Softball

Softball was invented in 1887 by George Hancock in Chicago as an indoor game. The first bat was a broom stick and the first ball a boxing glove. The score of the first game was 41-40. I wonder if they thought the score was too high and they might need to deaden the ball. Since that time the game has evolved and changed some for the good some not but one thing is certain the game always continued to evolve regardless of what the players said or did. We just played ball and like the weather and field conditions you don't worry about things you have little or no control over. Instead of gripping and complaining about what bats or balls should be used( I have played in 26 senior tournaments in 7 years of senior ball and I don't think I have used the same ball in any of them) we should be lobbying for minimum number of teams to have in a tournament. Nobody wants to waste their money for a 2 or 3 team tournament.

Discussion: Pitcher Protect - LARGE GLOVE

OTE24 rodriguezgloves.com have custom made 1st baseman's mitts 14" and also have 15" fielders gloves. I bought a 14" outfielders glove and they have about 10 different parts of the glove and about 10 different colors for those parts. They are a good quality glove made in Mexico.

Discussion: Looking to play in Phoenix

Does any 50 AAA, Major, or Major+ team need a player for the Phoenix tournament next week. I live in Kentucky and already have my ticket to Phoenix and would like to pickup with a team that might need a player. I play outfield and can run. Call me at (502) 807-7032. My name is Tom Stigler
