Taits, since your false info was an attempt to slandered GSC...how about you man up and let everyone know the name of the guy that fed you the crap about bat length.

I don't have any vested interest in GSC but....taits you owe it to name the liar.

Yet...for some reason I doubt you will do GSC right and shine light on your informant....maybe you can pretend like your a reporter;-)

This bat crying AGAIN....

All about a bat no one is being forced to buy, and almost no one has played against!!!

And...for the few of you complaining about paying for a bat and not getting it.....if you really want to do something??? have you ever hear of a thing called small claims court... Oh yah....it's so little money it's not worth your time.

Or....maybe paying for a bat you didn't get was money well spent.....it gave you something new to whine about for the last few years.

AdicTIV, I knew I'd like you!!!

Sounds like Turbo? Is also built of the same timber.

It's great to know there are actually other seniors that have what it takes to put down the composites and still be able to play a balanced competitive game.

As for the Viagra thing...thank God! Usually the guys that call me an idiot add the F-U phrase in as well.....

AdicTIV, you sound like a great player...confident in your abilities etc.....

Since I will be playing some 55 ball this season how about if you ever play MTC55 or MTC50 we get together and swing an aluminum bat during the game....then we can see if Viagra is needed...;-)

Rdrman, so your saing if the rule was.....aluminum homeruns do not count towards the Homerun total you'd gladly play?

Oh...one more thing...Did you ask Jose to autograph your uniform?;-)

I thought I played against Jose once but...alas...it was Ozzy. THANK GOD!!!

AdicTIV,

I hate to let you in on this secret but.....You would be at the back of a looooong line calling me an idiot...

Now I understand how frustrating and emotional it can be for some guys when their team gets bumped to Plus so I will give you and your mates some slack.

I can really care less about how good or bad of a softball player you are....I just hope your not one of those that place value in how great you are at softball...after all...driven to be a great softball player has destroyed many life's, and families.

I live by the motto...the only ring that matters is the one on my wife's finger.....

You referred to "you know not what you speak" , yet leave me in the dark on the issue i wrote that you "speakith about"??????

Maybe you can more articulately write to what you speakith?

If you do reply to this.....please use as small of words as possible...us idiots need all the help we can get.

Rdrman66....Doug?

Who would be scared to allow aluminum bat homeruns to not count towards the Homerun totals?

It's a win win...

1) Powerful hitters will most often not swing a composite..less danger

2) All the power hitters you all are crying about going middle can play unlimited homeruns.

My guess is...the only guys that would cry about this "aluminum rule" would be those that need composites to hit home runs.

From my younger days experience usually that guys that say swing what you want, who cares about the rules were either roid users or altered bat swingers.
And Swing....if you don't care what the rules are.....we can always use another Plus team.....WARRIORS.....COME UP TO PLAY..lol

Turbo has it exactly right.

If I could add one rule in seniors it would be any homerun hit with an aluminum bat does NOT count towards the home run total.

What this would do is....reward real home run hitters and...for many of the real powerful senior guys it would get the composites out of their hands much of the time.

Discussion: All the hate on DBO with senior bats...how about this?

So there has been 100s of comments on the dbo rule and the "fear" of pitchers getting hurt.

How about this answer.....if reduced risk of injury to all players IS REALLY the fear.

Instead of crying about the rule, how about teams saying ok...the rule is the rule....to reduce any perceived risk of injury, our team volunteers to SHARE/swing aluminum bats ONLY , in any dbo game as long as the other team agrees.

You see...when the rubber really hits the road...this will show who really wants to reduce the risk of injury and who really..wants to pretend while swinging a composite.

The real sad part of this thread is....I believe to many seniors have become "composite dependent" for many teams to man up to the challenge.

If I am wrong...and the mens division actually agreed to such a thing???

Home runs would once again mean something.

Defense would once again mean something and......

Defensive players would have very little risk of serious injury,

So...to the turbos, Adiktiv, and all the other vocal guys hammering the new rule how about it.

Perl, would your last post be called a........perlJAM...

I am with you......

It's going to be interesting to see who has the talent to stand out with the new dbo rules..

Also...as oddball said.....I have heard from others, very rarely do 65 and up Plus teams reach their home run limit so were really only talking about three age groups.

Discussion: 1 up rule

If you are thinking about 1 up, I think any homer over the one up should be a dbo...and....the Homerun totals should be lowered....

I support getting the non-Homerun hitters and defensive players more envolved with senior ball...having unlimited homeruns hurts the historical playing of softball.

Discussion: Why Not Have A Players Committee Of Real Players To Over See The Rules

Mike, I agree we will have to disagree on the kinda break up the plus champion thing
I believe plus struggles every year because on many occasions groups of player are allowed to win multiple rings with the same 10-1-12-13 guys.
Just like every other Division Champion is only allowed to return with a very limited amount of their bumped roster (3players to be exact) I believe the same should apply to the Plus Division except they should be allowed 100% more returners (6 players to be exact).
If we won the Plus World. Would support applying this to our group until if we decided to get together again in the next age group.
Now...maybe this new dbo rule will help incentivize bumped teams to try to play Plus...time will tell...
All we all do know is....how Plus is being run now....isn't working

Tattoo....I agree...with the obvious success of SSUSA, others are comming after our senior dollars.

In NorCal we have local senior programs that give us a whole season worth of senior softball within 60 miles from home.

Traveling is a choice...not a need.

Wow....a team that gets bumped to Plus decides to skip attempting to compete in it!

Unheard of...could this be a new trend;-)

Patty, it's just that I believe complete players will happily welcome the new dbo rule.

Why? Because it gives those complete players more opportunity to shine/win...and NO...I am not one of those complete players either.

Matter of fact...on the softball field all I was good at as a youngster was hitting homeruns. A value (other then on baseball fields) that has been eliminated with the composite era.

Discussion: Why Not Have A Players Committee Of Real Players To Over See The Rules

I play on the MTC50 team and will be a fill in on the 55 team. There is no 60 team.

I believe you have to turn over the top teams to improve the health/numbers of any softball Division.

That's why dominant AA teams get moved to aaa, why aaa teams get moved to Major and why Major teams get moved to Plus... I just believe Plus Champions should be treated the same as all those other Divisions just instead of only allowing three players to come back in the same Division I'd give Plus teams 100% more returning players...SIX

It's my view Plus is so limited for many reasons but the biggest two are...allowing groups of players to win multiple Worlds and unlimited homeruns without them being outs....I'll leave the going back to five runs per inning for another time.

I think having 11 teams at last years 50 Plus World was great....with the new dbo rule I would think its possible that there could be more then 15 teams this year.

As an example...I saw where Sports Center was turned down for reclass to major... That team plays a very good inside the park game...this dbo rule works to their advantage..why? Because it puts value on other then one dinemsional power hitters.

I agree teams can play whatever associations they want...it's to bad a rule rewarding complete hitters is going to run you guys off. Some just might see that as being scared of playing to top level of SSUSA now that you have been placed there.
I know our team was not happy to get bumped last year....but we took the challenge and felt competitive even while going 0-2.

Discussion: Why Not Have A Players Committee Of Real Players To Over See The Rules

Patty...so let me understand.....

I was right about your Plus mentality of merging the Major Division. Except that your news didnt just happen...I don't think this is any special insight though...because the only guys that ever cry about merging the two Divisions are ALWAYS PLUS players.

I was right about your 50 team averaging around 15 homeruns per game in a MAJOR tourney.

Now your 50 major team complaining about not going to play ssusa Plus next year (your words not mine) even though that same team will now get 50% more homeruns per game as a Plus team before they reach their limit.

Congrats on the Hollis championships...although if I had my way...after you guys won your first World SSUSA would have only allowed you to return with six players till you reach the next age group.

I am a very limited defensive player on a Plus team.

I hit very few home runs on our team.

Unlike you....I have never won a SSUSA World.

Our MTC team was bumped to Plus in 2012 after comming in third at Vegas. We kept the exact same team/plus one pick up.... And were 2-0 in the round robbin then went 0-2 in the 2013 Vegas World tourney.

This season we again added one player...all of us live in NorCal. 8 of us played on the same city league team last year.

On your limited tourneys to play issue...I understand that could be frustrating...thank heavens in NorCal we have a strong senior program run by the players...NCSSA

I have to admit...I have no idea what this new rule will do in the 60+ age groups but...I believe its a great rule in the younger age groups.

Discussion: How about a discussion on ow we think dbos will effect our games? And our assumptions why.

No I am not saying there is no place for slow guys in softball.

I do believe they should only be playing pitcher, catcher, AH, 1b and 3b though.
