Discussion: What sport consisted of your athletic career?

I started playing little league baseball when I was 6, got the last uniform which was a size 14, but I wore it and was proud to, played little league 7 years, the cut off for age was 13 before Aug 1 and my birthday was Aug2,my last year in little league we were 20-0 and beat the all-stars lol. Played 2 yrs Pony League, got to high school and lettered 3 yrs in baseball, were the runners up (first losers) in S.C. state championships all 3 yrs, bummer, played football and my senior year won the S.C. state championship 1961, this year is our 50th reunion and we all are gonna be inducted into the North Augusta S.C. Sports Hall of Fame in Feb. Ran track 3 yrs in high school. Went to USC Aiken and played 2 yrs of baseball, got a glance from Pittsgurgh Pirates. Got into law enforcement and retired after 39 yrs. Played some church and co ed slow pitch softball, then when I turned 50 I heard about a senior softball team in Augusta, Ga. in 1994, and have played ever since, and in my playing all over the country, I have made some lasting friends that without senior softball I would have never met, some of the best friends I have and of course have been able to keep the competetive edge at the ripe old age of 67. It gives you a purpose to stay in shape so you won't embarsss yourself, lol.

Discussion: Strength Building Suggestions Wanted

Gary 19, I work hard year round to be able to play this game to the very best of my ability for the team I play for, and part of that is being able to run with speed which I, by the grace of God, have been blessed with. part of the sacrifice I make to my team is being able to run when asked by the coach to do so. Now what tees me off is being called a derogatory name such as a rabbit by you or anybody else who has something against a rule they don't like in senior softball. Have some respect for us who do this, after all we don't call you a know it all although some of might think it. I probably could call some of you other things but out of respect, I don't.

Discussion: Most Unusual, outlandish, Funny, etc. Softball story

Playing in a church league game in the 80's, one umpire and it had to be his madien voyage, bottom of seventh and we were down by one run with two out and a runner on second. I hit a shot to left and the left fielder made a play on the ball and I decided to go for it and stretch it into a double, well halfway to second the left fielder threw a strike to the second baseman who was waiting for me, the umpire had run out in the middle of the infield and I called time out, well the ump threw his hands in the air and called time out and started walking back toward home plate, so I walked on to second. The opposing coach ran out raising cain that I couldn't do that and the umpire told him that you could call time out anytime you wanted. One run had already scored to tie the game and the next batter got a hit and I scored to win the game. Other coach protested the game and the umpire told him that the rules were the rules and his protest was over ruled

Discussion: sitting here and wondering

Hang in there mad dog, spring will be here before you know it and you will smell the fresh cut grass and see all your buddies heading to the park, and you'll be right there with them, like shane and curveball said it's the comradship and the new friends you make each and every year that means the most. You are part of a special breed of people, us old farts who still like to play the game and be competitive, enough of our breed is starting to leave us, so enjoy while you still have the ability to play. Merry Christmas, my friend.

Discussion: How did you get your start in softball?

Got talked into playing in a church league, and after playing baseball in high school and college and using wooden Louisville slugger bats, the softball was bigger and supposedly easier to hit but the wooden baseball bats weren't doing so well, barely getting it to the grass, then came the BOMBAT MEATHEAD, 38 ozs of pure aluminum, wow, the ball then made it to the left fielder. Had one Bombat that got curved on the end and I would turn it one way to hit to right and the other way to hit to left. All the writing wore off but, hey Mad dog, it wouldn't break. Fences were 250 and it took a shot to get one out. Those were the days.

Discussion: softball player or not

Most of us playing this grand game would agree that we would play with any equipment that is dictated by the assoc. we play in and some of us enjoy playing with the composit bats and the fire balls, but that's because it's allowable and is the best equipment available, and as long as they are the best available, we have to keep pace to be competitive.

Discussion: 5 Run Rule

One of the assoc. starts the 1 run per inning in the second and goes thru the sixth with the seventh as an open inning, can't remember if it's SPA or NSA.

Webbie, thanks for your update and wanting to help improve Senior softball, it's people like you who are willing to get involved that will eventually make an impact on decisions made at these conferences and they will know that ordinary people or Players are interested enough to attend and will speak out
