Congrats to AZ Elite on winning the 50 Major + division...You guys sure have our #!(Rated Athletics) We'll try you again in Vegas, if we decide to play....It's always a pleasure to compete against you guys & that little Shit Chuckie is one hell of a pitcher....MTC you guys are to be congratulated also....It a hard thing to beat ANY team 3 time in the same tournament...Good Job!! I did however Almost throw a NO HITTER SHUT OUT against you guys in the 1st games, but had to settle for the 2 hitter....lol

Swing (Rich) Now that you're the Cal-Cup & Western Nationals 2013 Champs... Should we welcome the Nor Cal Warriors to SSUSA's Major + Division?.....If you don't get moved up for Vegas after winning 2 tournaments, then SSUSA should move us (Rated Athletics) back to 50 Majors!!! I know it won't happen because of how flawed SSUSA's system is when it comes to ratings (i.E. George) So please enjoy your winnings & I hope you guys get to win the triple Crown for your great 2013 season!

Discussion: Yellow Combat MM Gear vs Blue MM Gear

Mike,
I know you say Combat wouldn't lie...But we had this conversation months ago & I believe they ARE NOT EVEN CLOSE TO BEING THE SAME BAT! Not even close....
I had 4 yellow MM (still have 1 left) I purchased 2 blue MM from you, and they didn't even come close to performing the way the Yellow MM performed....Case in point, I can offer my 27oz Yellow MM with about 50 swings on it RIGHT NOW, & someone will offer me at least $300 for it....will the blue get the same offer? I think not!

Michigan, Buy the White Centenarian, you'll be happier with that one!!! The blue MM will disappoint you in the long run...IMO

Swing,,
I get it but someone has to keep an eye on Dave! Maybe since there will be time, Dave can buy the 1st round of beers…..LMAO
If SSUSA ( or shall I say George), had not promoted us to the + division in the middle of the season, this conversation would be mutt…..lol

Hi Dave,
Why can’t my small division start our double elimination bracket play Friday evening?
I played SPA in Dalton last weekend, 15 team bracket, 2 seeding games Friday am, then double elimination bracket play started Friday afternoon for all teams & only 3 teams made it to Sunday, all others went home Saturday & there were NO NIGHT GAMES PLAYED!…..For this tourney, unless I missed something, all pool play for the 50’s games on Friday commence around 3pm, & we finish our pool play Friday around 11am, giving the 3 teams a little rest in between games & can easily finish the tournament at the schedule times on Saturday evening if we start our elimination games Friday….…I understand the total team partication in ALL divisions & having to accommodate everyone…..IMO it just seems a little over kill to drag out a 3 team bracket over 3 days!!!!! Dave my friend, you being the bracket guru you are, I’m sure you can find a way….LOL

Staff,

with just 3 teams, Why can't this division finish their play on Saturday?
IMO it makes no since keeping these team around for 3 days, just to play a 5 game schedule & I'm sure MTC & AZ Elite feel the same way!!!

Discussion: Playing out of your division in a tournament

Swing, Last year in Mesquite, a major + team was put in the Major division * although they didn't win the tournament, they did eliminate a few Major teams from the tournament, which I thought wasn't fair, even with the equalizer in place....I was playing with Tommy about AAA beating Major's......But you're right it SHOULD never happen....lol

Tommy,
Nice thread…..I totally agree with you on this…..Let the teams in the lower divisions play to win their tourneys, the upper level team can play against the lower levels, they just can’t win the tournament…After all bye default the upper level team wins their division, if they’re the only team entered! I still can’t believe that 50 major team didn’t beat you AAA’ers twice!….LOL

Jason,
I’d like to thank Steve & the GSC company for making good on the promises of helping those that were did wrong by Mr.Gatley…..(Believe me I know you are NOT in any way responsible for this) When Steve first told me about the ordeal he had take upon…..Well all I can do is commend GSC! In today’s world of business & the ME ME attitudes out there, it nice to see a company be like the old days” MY WORD IS MY BOUND” Thanks again I look forward to swing the new P13 or is it P14?...lol

Discussion: Why Do Some Guys Lose It Sooner

HJ,
Thanks for the tip...I too have read those studies...My question would be what is too much water intake.....For me I think my intake is correct, if you had a chance to see how much I sweat on a give day, you might agree with my intake!...I'm not over weight...6'2 215 but let's take a 3 game day on a 80 degrees day, I may go though 3- 5 shirts SOAKED! I will take some Electro ligths on very warm days for playing but always drinking water....

The issues with breaking up the teams, means the guys leaving will have to find other teams to play on or try to recruit & run their own team…Which if anyone has tried to run a team and deal with 12-20 different type of guys is a JOB in its self! Then your team has a good season the 1st year & have to disband again? NOT! I think breaking up a team is not the answer!! Most guys play on teams from their area, regular less of their team classification…As someone has stated here, not all of the major + teams are sponsored.. ..As too recruit & fly guys to theses tournaments...

It would really be a good idea to keep in contact with the other managers of the Major + division. That way we can call one another & ask the question “Is your team playing in XYZ tournament” Cool we’ll be there also…The Manteca tournament for the Nor Cal Senior Championships is one for an example!!!
Can my Southern Cal Rated Athletics team play in this one? I know it’s a nice tournament; I’ve played in it a couple of years back…. @ Jawood I hear you loud & clear on the age different from 40’s to 55’s! Isn’t it funny how when we were in our 40’s our talent level for playing the game was SO MUCH HIGHER? That’s why we can compete against them with a 10-15 year age different……… You are correct about the Index rating or as I like to call it “that BS team disruption formula” Thank you for telling us your concerns with playing against the 40’s, our team only has 3- 55 players on the roster, the rest just turned 50 this year or last! So we will give it a go & see if we can’t PISS off some of those younger’s by beating up on them….lol

@Beasley, I understand the injury reports….I’m playing for Rated Athletics 50 major’s #22 in Dalton
Look me up & I’ll buy you a beer or two…..@Tim, yes I think the 40 division is the answer if you looking at playing a few more teams then they have in 50 +….…I also like the 2 day tourneys that the 40 division play!!!!! Staff you say NW Legends won the 1st 40 they play in but wouldn’t do it again! It would be nice to hear their displeasure of the division! We may just come to the Western nationals as a 50+, but that depends on who showing up……If MTC, AZ Elite, NW Legends,& Nazzerino show up we may enter the western nationals n…….What 50 + teams are going to the WESTERN NATIONAL? As it stands now, if you look at all the 50 + teams in the nation, I can only count about 10, the 5 that I mention above, plus OKI, KC Barons, Summerville & Roberts, I know Team 1 Sports is active but don’t think their coming to the West Coast for Vegas……so if everyone shows up for Vegas there should be a 10-12 team bracket in the 50’s major + division! That’s makes a nice competitive tournament!

What I have notice in a lot of guys is their water intake...Don't get me wrong everyone's body is different * I really believe most folks don't listen to their bodies...I do the Spin Bike 3 days a week & hit BP twice a week, but the thing that I truly believe keeps me going is my WATER intake....I drink on a daily bases at least 100oz a day...I can sweat with the best of them, which in my opinion makes me always cleaning & flushing out that crap that we put in our bodies! Most young people do not like & won’t drink water! Try increasing your water intake & see what it does to your Stamina?
I'm 57 & take NO medication what's so ever!

Beasley,
We don’t play a lot of SPA or ISSSA here on the west coast! There’s only 1 Major + team here, however that has changed this month since our promotion to the + division! SSUSA and our Southern Cal Senior association are what we have here in Southern Cali. There’s only 3- 50 major teams that we compete against on a regular bases & 1 + team or 2 if AZ Elite comes to town!…After playing in 3 SSUSA 50 Major events, winning 2 of the 3 we got promoted...Now our players LOVE to play and don’t mind competing in the Major + division…..But with so few teams there, we have decided to play in the 40 Major’s division where we will have more teams to play verses the 6-8 team Major + tourney this coming Vegas! Our team is made up from guys who played 50 Majors the last few years on different teams......The 40’s major division is just as competitive as the 50”s major + Division, with way more teams…. Those are the two divisions to combine……Eliamate the 50 Majors + division & make the 50 major team go play 40 majors, when promoted or create a 45 Major division & play there……I know, I’ll get a lot of BS from the 40’s guys, but really the level of competition is about the same! This will be our 1st SPA world, looking forward to the Southern & East Coast Competition…. Beasley will you be in Dalton?
