Discussion: Force play

The game was Televised on ESPN. Jeter was the batter and after the play was over the announcer said double play. I switched back to the MLB channel. There could have been and over turn but I did not stick with the channel to find out. I guess I should have. I am sure that is what I saw although the eye site is not what it used to be. Thanks Harry

Discussion: Force play

I was watching the NY St Louis game a little while ago. Runners on first and second and Jeter hits a ground ball to second. The 2nd baseman has the ball in his throwing hand tags the runner with his empty glove and a throw to first to complete the double play. I always thought that the ball had to be in the glove to get an out call.Is it different went it is a force play if so I never knew of that rule. Thanks Harry

Bruce, I would take 800am over 800pm any day of the week. I like the idea that games pretty much stay on time. I found it very frustrating showing up at 900am and playing your last game that was scheduled at 800pm but started at midnight. I prefer tourneys where the games stay pretty much on time. Whatever it takes to make that happen I am in favor of. Thanks Harry

tg69, What a great statement. It one short sentence that does a very good job of stating who is the team to beat. I wish that I would have thought of it. Thanks Harry

Dave, Glad you got to play and did ok after that first game. I am still a work in progress. No weight or bands yet Just walking the walls and a few other exercises. I see the Dr on the 7th of March and all he wants to see me do is the touchdown sign and not the first down signal. I am getting close. I do not know how you did it so quickly. I will follow Drs. orders and continue on his plan. It is slow but I hope effective. Keep up the good work. Thanks Harry

I will put my money on Turn 2 or I think they will be called Superior softball this year in the 60 major +. East coast bias. Thanks Harry

Dale,It is a small world. Ronnie can still hit em deep. He has hit a few against us over past few years. He is a great guy off the field as well.I hit a line drive off of Beavers foot that bounced over the foul fence a few years back. It looked terrible and their coach told him that is why you catch. It was pretty funny at the time.I do not think Beaver thought that it was funny .Thanks Harry

OZZIE#8, I do the rehab at home in between the sessions and I am looking forward to rehabbing after therapy is over. Especial the after part. It is amazing how many people that have gone through this talk about extra rehab. I will be one of those offering the same advice when it is all said and done. Thanks Harry

Discussion: Reclassifying Teams

tg69, That is hard to believe that the team comes in second gets moved to Major+ and the first place teams gets re-rated to major. Or they just stay at Major in this case.I think that HSB started the year as a Major+ team and then got re-rated to Major and won the Nov. tourney. It looks like they were re-rated Major in Oct 2012 and won the Nov tourney. I could be wrong on this.Maybe just an error. Thanks Harry

Dave, Good news. try not to swing and miss to many. You may have to lay off the high hard one at the TOC. I asked the therapist about a faster rehab and she said everybody has their own approach. My Dr. is cautious and takes things slow. I wish you good fortune at the TOC. Thanks Harry

Discussion: Rehab after biceps, shoulder and rotator cuff surgery

Bogie, Sounds painful to me. I am glad that you are able to still play with the injury. I needed to get the shoulder done not just for the physical reason but mentally I needed to get back to being a position player and you have to throw to do that. Thanks Harry

Discussion: TOC 55 division

My feelings on the TOC is that this tourney is the only one in senior softball that you need to qualify for by winning a tourney. I am not sure about the ISSA in Tampa this weekend but I do not think that it is the same.I will agree that the date of this tourney should be look at.We are not going because of a huge roster turn over. Our top 6 or 7 hitters have depart for better things. I wish them luck in their knew endeavor. Well maybe, I really hope they crash and burn.We would have been able to play if this was held in Nov of 2012.The bottom line is you have to win something to play in the TOC and that to me is very very important. Thanks Harry #20 NVFORCE

Discussion: Rehab after biceps, shoulder and rotator cuff surgery

I asked my therapist today if the bicep tendon repair had any effect on the rehab of the rotator cuff. She said that the rehab was practically the same whether bicep tendon surgery was added or not. It just takes time to rehab the rotator cuff.I looked at my protocol and on the 27th week I can begin a throwing program that is almost 7 months after the surgery. I did have bicep tendon repair also. Thanks Harry

missouridave, I had my surgery done on 11/28. We are at the same stage. I was also planning on trying to hit at the TOC but we are not going.I keep wondering if I would have been able to.According to my Protocol gently swinging a golf club is not until week 14-19 or day 91-132.The TOC is 3 weeks from today which puts it at the start of the 11th week.I hope that you can DH that would be great. Please keep us informed on your progress. I can use you success to judge how I am doing. It still amazes me how excited I get over the little things in this rehab ordeal. Thanks Harry # 20 NV FORCE

Rainmans, my first week in rehab and the instructor told me that my Dr. went real slow at this because of the re-injury possibility.I will take it slow.


Dave, I was hoping to be able to hit at the TOC but our team had some issues with guys joining another team ( 7 starters) so we are not going. I will just do what they tell be and hope to be able to throw by April or May. Golf and hit before then. Thanks Harry
