steve65. I do just about the same thing. Am amazed that I'm not in the obits yet. I to love the game, even with it's so called many flaws. Thanks for the great post. Hope no one decides to argue as to our enjoyment.

Discussion: Observation

Gary19. Just from my experience the response from the younger crowd is that they are amazed and and awed at how well we do for our age. Don't seem to recall any comments as to the rules. I constantly run into "kids" who would like to play "our" game. Especially the 40 y.o's that know soon it will happen.

Discussion: Yearly Player Poll

I think it is a good idea. I would suggest though that it be kept to a yes, no forum. If input was needed as to more questions then that could be directed through the SSUSA email. Otherwise we would have a mile long thread with a lot of overstated opinions. JMO.

My coplayer and manager uses one. he loves it. 26oz. It is strictly a game day bat according to him. Serious hitters could shorten the life with bp.

Discussion: Age Brackets & Divisions

I agree with Duke. As soon I reached 60 the play changed and now that I'm 65 it has really changed. 57 to 63 might work but the 64 to 70 is a big differential. Not sure what the answer is though. Maybe an in team review of talent with a waiver to go up in age bracket. I relize that it would pretty much be on the honor system, but as adults I think it could happen. It does seem like with the bracketing we have now alot of teams are locked in to high because of past performance and the review does not happen soon enough. Tends to make for some long hard seasons.

It is enough that SSUSA has stated and did what they must, but for us to comment anymore is fanning the flames also. Let it lie.

Thanks Einstein, you don't even know me and yet I get lumped in with cloven feet and horns. Speaks alot of your issues. Just because I took the pledge and you didn't I did not drop to slander and bad taste. Maybe you should rethink your words before printing them.

Discussion: On My Honor 2

In all the tournaments I've been to I can only remember bats being checked once. On the second day the had them back on the field and the umps never cared. Do you really think that the power that be want to get into this. It is too large for them to handle. Not enough enforcement to be had. It seems our only recourse is personal involvement. Therefore this honor oath is very important. I feel sorry for the ones who cannot self impose it.

Discussion: What Define a Major Plus Player, a Major Player and a AAA player and Who rates Them

If you jump up in a new age bracket doesn't that allow you to be rerated? IE. .. I turned 65 and am allowed to play AA when I was AAA in the 60's.
