Discussion: SSUSA AND SPA MEETINGS

Don this for your SPA meeting.It would be nice to see some coordination between associations on team ratings. Went to Dalton this year and found 7 of the 11 teams in our AA bracket were playing AAA in SSUSA and AA in SPA. 6 of the 7 finished in the top 7 places. That should tell SPA something about their ratings for those teams.

Mac will be missed. Always the nice guy with something nice to say to everyone. Prayers for the family. God must have needed a third baseman

Discussion: spinal fusion

I had L4-L5 fusion with the addition of 4 inch SS rods on both sides of the spine with two clamps and 4 screws. Did not play again out of fear for 15 years. I am now 66 and have been playing senior softball since I was 57. The only problem I have is the rods prevent some side bending range. Get a good surgeon and go for it.

Discussion: ASA approved bat

birdie If you can find the original orange crush, the one rated 100mph with the 2000 asa stamp you can't go wrong. It is still legal. Stay away from any but the original mzc4. The second issue and those that followed stinks

Discussion: Rare 30 oz 2000 ASA stamped ultra 2 for sale

Due to shoulder surgery I have a rare 30 oz ASA stamped ultra 2 in excellent shape for sale. I can no longer swing a 30 oz bat is the only reason for selling. IMO the ASA models are more durable than the newer models. If interested I can provide an e-mail for off line contact. Thought I would try this before e bay.

Discussion: Rules on Rosters

Just dealt with the same question and was told by the Sacramento office that no one needs a release for the new year. In essence all players are released at the end of the 2010 tourneys.

Discussion: Miken Durability

I too believe that we have less breakage with the heavier bats. I bought a 29 oz u2 when they first came out and am still using it. I used to let teammates use it as well until I decided to find another with the ASA 2000 stamp. When I had to give 300.00 dollars for a like new 30oz with the ASA stamp I stopped letting others use my bat. After having shoulder surgery I don't know if I will be able to swing the 30oz but if my 29 ever breaks I'll have it in my bag. IMO the older models with ASA stamp do last longer.

Discussion: Thoughts on no hit zone

mad dog I can remember when as kids 8 9 and 10 years old when we could not get 9 on a team we closed a field to play. It seems that the ill conceived no hit zone must appeal to the adult decision makers as well. If this is the best they can come up with as adults maybe we should turn the decision making over to our grandchildren. Come on SSUSA STAFF man up like we were taught as kids admit our mistakes and correct them. You don't need a survey to realize this is a screw up.

Discussion: Thoughts on no hit zone

Just a few thoughts about the no hit zone. It isn't just a two foot zone when you think about it. Any pitcher worth being called a pitcher will now back up at an angle to the left or right of the pitchers rubber to help cover the hole between second and short or between second and the second baseman rather than back straight up now that he does not have to defend the middle two feet. For those of us that are base hitters not power hitters this takes away a hugh area that we normally use. This couild be as much as 8-10 feet depending on the pitchers ability. Witha ball hit in this area the pitcher can have 1 of 3 things happen 1. catch it 2. deflect it to a team mate 3. get hit by a ball that would not have hit him if defending the middle. The PPR was awful but this worse. I can only hope that when the powers that be think about how much room they are really taking away and they don't wait to make a change. Anyone else see it this way.

Discussion: SSUSA STAFF --- HELP

I have seen this posted before but have not seen a reply from SSUSA staff. The mid-west tourney has these dates listed : page 46 in tourney book left side July21-July 26, right side of same page July 7 - July 12, under tournments on the web site 6/9- 6-14 on the map site 6/9 -614. It would help if someone in the know would state the actual date of this tourney.

Discussion: Home Run Limits

Can someone that helps to make the rules please answer why as you get older you are allowed less home runs than the younger groups. It would seem that if you can still reach the fence at 60+ your home run should count as much as if you were still 50+. I can't think of any logic that justifies a reduced number of home runs as you age. Someone please respond that knows the true answer.

Discussion: RULE CHANGES...COMMENTS

Although this is my first post, I have read all the posts and It seems to me that c pope has the best solution. Let all divisions have one HR then one up. This seems to be the best way to make things simple and easy. I only play AA but the idea of making HRs an out does not help anyone enjoy the game. Our team probably has not hit over 5HRs all year. I seldom hit a home run but don't enjoy it being an out because one of the guys has already hit one. With the U2 onyone could accidently hit a HR(as mine would be) . The idea that HRs should be less for the older divisions is nuts. If you are still able to find the fence, then it should count as much as if you were 50+. The DBO rule protects no one. If you must mess with the rules make the use of protective equipment the rule. Then you really have a protection rule. I don't pitch but play 3rd base and have taken some U2 shots that were just as hard as any pitcher that I have seen take.
