Discussion: SPA National Over 60 Major Dalton, Georgia - Injury to Wild Bunch Pitcher

The pitcher for the Wild Bunch got hit in the throat by a bad bounce when bending down to field a grounder when playing the Minnesota Masters. It appeared to be a serious injury. Does anyone know his condition? He is a class act and I hope he is OK.

Tom/wazoo - Yes, the Minnesota Prize moved up to 65. Actually they moved up to and played over 65 last year (in 2010). We look forward to playing you too. A one run game won in the bottom of the 7th. They don't get any closer than that.

Discussion: Kevlar bats

TPS cames out with a Kevlar bat (it was not a senior bat) in about 2002. It was a great bat (hot) but it would frequently break with 50 or even less swings. It was under warranty and because of its frequent need to be replaced under the warranty, I think it was only made for one year. I loved the bat but probably broke at least six of them that year. From my limited experience, it appears that Kevlar is not a good material to use for softball bats.

To Gorilla Boy (aka Mike M), Thanks the information. I'll give you a call in a day or two to place an order. Never seen anyone hit the ball harder or farther than you.

Is the length of the barrel 13 inches like the new blue senior combat?

Several of the Minnesota players who are retired (not me) play dome ball one or two days a week during the winter. In addition, some of us played in a two day, four to five game dome tournament in January in Rochester, Minnesota. It was 28 below zero outside one day and only in the low 40s inside the dome. Anyone who has played dome ball knows it is nothing like playing outside. For example, the wall in right field in the Rochester dome is only about 200' from home plate but 300' to left and center. Balls frequently hit the wall in right or off the ceiling, which is low. Balls that hit the ceiling or wall in fair territory are in play and are outs if caught before hitting the ground. Fly balls cannot go very high because of the low ceiling. The lighting is generally poor in domes so it is difficult to see and judge the ball. The floor is artificial turf so the ball bounces much differently than on a normal ball field. Some players like me who don't have the greatest eyesight have difficulty seeing the ball in a dome, even when hitting. However, there is no question that playing dome ball in the winter helps but again it is nothing like playing outside. We were glad to be able to play two mini-tournament games on Thursday and two seeding games on Friday before the tournament started on Saturday.

The Minnesota Masters and Minnesota Prize finished first and second, respectively, in the over 60 Major. Except for a few snowbirds, most of the players on these two teams last played in October in Phoenix or November in Fort Myers.

Discussion: 2009 SPA Major Plus/Major Tournament

I received an e-mail frm Ridge Hooks (I'm on SPA's distribution list) a few days ago with the revised dates for 65 major plus, major, AAA, and AA. I cut and past his e-mail in my message above. The correct dates for the 65 tournament are September 10 through 13.

Important Message From
Softball Players Association
Softball Players Association

Corrected National Tournament Dates:

* Men's 65+ Major Plus, Major, AAA, & AA has been changed to September 10th - 13th, 2009.
* Men's 50+ AAA & AA has been changed
to September 17th - 20th, 2009.

Above you will find new dates for the 2009 Men's 65+ & 50+ National Championships in Dalton, Georgia.

These changes have been made due to a conflict of playing dates with another senior association. SPA has worked diligently over the past 10 years to avoid any scheduling conflicts with other senior softball association National or World tournaments. Although we announced our schedule two (2) months ago after many hours of deliberation, we just learned that another organization has placed their dates on top of ours. It was not done deliberately, however such a conflict will hurt both tournaments. We have discussed at length the pros and cons of moving the dates, however, SPA does not want teams to be forced into making this type of tough decision. No one wins in the end if we have the same date. We apologize for the inconvenience that your team may incur with this change, however, it is only January and we believe that our teams can still make changes accordingly. If you have any questions please call our office.

Thank you for playing SPA,

Sincerely,
Ridge Hooks, Executive Director
