Discussion: For the guys who still play with the kids.......

Gary, I play senior ball, co-ed and men's D ball with the youngesters and have fun playing all three. Have to use different bats but no big deal. It is more fun to hang with the senior group, it is easier to relate to my our year group. Still fun to hang with the younger group and see their faces when the find out they the lost to a 60 something.

Calling you guys clueless is name calling, really. Rule is not going to change. Find another game if you don't like the one we play, no one is forcing anyone to play this game most of us love.

last out won't spend up the game, play co-ed Tuesday and we can run for the ladies if needed by using the out lady out, it takes us way longer to figure that out verus using best available. it would be the same way with us in the Seniors, let the coach make the decision but be prepared, you know who needs runners, not excuse for any delay. Umpire needs to control the action, snooze and you lose. Not ready don't allow change.

Discussion: O.K., WHO ARE THE MOST SOLID AA TEAMS AND ARE YOU HEADED TO DALTON THIS THURSDAY? (especially 60 AA)

Anyone notice how poor AA Doc Martens walked thru Dalton without one game being close??? Poor decision by someone.

First anyone who thinks Doc Martens is a AA is crazy, they are closer to a major team. We played them last year in Dalton and that is one hell of a team.

Discussion: Why are there not any ranking systems for senior softball/ only rating??

MD your wrong. systemworks great in florida, played there for 10 years and we always played in 5 years division 50-55-60-65-70+. We always played team that match our playing ability, when we improved we move up, lost players or got worse we were moved down. This why most Florida teams don't go outside fla to play, their know they will face AAA teams that really Major,etc.Add playing 12 months of the year. We are in the wrong state Mad Dog.

Discussion: BP/practice

I play 2 to 3 times a week, that is the only swings I take, but I do run 5 days a week, somewhere between 2 to 6 miles. Quickest and speed do more for me then upper body strenght. Extra swings cause me to have a tired arms and a lazy swing. I know I'm in the minority with this but you asked.
