Discussion: The Rock balls

I find this an interesting subject. We have an organized batting practice group that meets every Wednesday and Friday at Spencers Crossing park in French Valley. We have around 100 "ROCK" balls. (the choice of the players) Yesterday I noticed several (yes several) balls wiggling as they flew into the outfield. Those balls were not knuckle balls and were definitely spinning. I asked one of the guys to check one of those balls as he picked it up to see if it was cut. It wasn't. I'm just wondering if there is a design flaw in the construction. We cut one apart last year and it has two outer shells. This is what gives the ball the spongy feeling and I suspect the durability in heat. I'm thinking the two shells after being hit morf in some way to redistribute the weight somehow thus causing the ball to wiggle in flight. Are you sure these balls were not spinning?? I'm not an engineer but it would be interesting to find out. We as an association through the encouragement of several managers have just started using this ball. If the ball is flawed we will switch back. I'm less concerned about balls breaking down than a possible safety issue. I guess we can test it on the 18th-19th in Temecula as I have a case of them on the way. More input is welcomed.

Discussion: How can SSUSA possibly reclassify an established Major+ team

Whether its Fan Grabbers or not a quick check of the Vegas major division will tell you Fangrabbers are in with the M's not the M+'s. Another clue is the ratings tab under 55s.

AZ Elite is scheduled to do 5 of ours this year. Sorry you guys couldn't come Saturday - Sunday. We had five 50M teams and four 55M teams. 45 minutes from Ontario International Airport with 11 regional tournaments throughout the year we offer a great opportunity to play in the Southern California sun. See you next month!

HR: Boy what an ego too... Yes technically I worked for Joe cuz he was president. He had a personality like dracula. Well I guess he had no personality then. My boss was Dennis Holding VP of Sales. Now this will take you back. Remember the Frantic 4 top fuel dragster? The "Four" were Weekly, Rivero, Fox and Holding. Jim Fox and Dennis Holding supported the top fuel car with a paper route in Pomona. Yes a paper route. They threw papers at 3am to 7am and then went to work in the day. Fun days for sure!!

Rob (curveball) glad you had a good race and congrats. I read somewhere Rick has his own ride. Its red in color I think. I'll have to do some research. Looked like a good race. I was rooting for an all girls final in Funny car though. I always liked Stardust Raceway in the old days. Haven't been to the new track as I don't get to vegas that often. Yes by all means come over. We have 11 tournaments a year. Next weekend we have 26 teams. Hemi guy enjoy the southern nationals. I was in atlanta once a lifetime ago when I worked for Mr Gasket. I had a blast in those days.

But reality and old age catches up to you. Sad day today my first real TV love (8th grade) passed on today. God bless you Annette... RIP. Bit of trivia for you old guys that were Mouseketeer fans. Mouseketeer Tommy was non other than Top Fuel TV Tommy Ivo. But I never watched because of the guys anyway just, Annette :O( If you're interested there is a very nice article about her on the FOX News web site

Have a good one

Scott Im not understanding you about the color scheme on schedules and the definition no "key". Schedules are always linked to a pdf. The lettering that creates the link and its color is determined by your browser settings. For example if I write "schedule" then link it then I give it a blue color you may not see it as blue. My browser uses orange for the links I view. I hope that is what you mean? The only schedule link up on the home page right now is the schedule for the French Valley Senior Softball League which starts tomorrow night. Originally I think it was yellow.

We have been doing this for over a year and a half. www.socalssa.com Several teams have given us their schedules so we can post them in the RSVP listing under each tournament. It allows all the teams to see who is coming so they know who they may be paired with. We have an RSVP list that goes out past September. One thing it does is cut down on those "who's coming? " phone calls

Rob I know Top Gun Thunder 50AAA have a Monsta. No Guts No Glory 60AAA have one. Those are the only teams I know personally that have one.

National Speed Center moved to Charleston in about 1983 or 84. It was a nice building I'd say around 3000 sq ft. I think the business closed down in early 2000s when Jim contracted cancer. Had a lot of good times with the people there. They carried all the products in my brief case :O)

As for Dondero how about Willy Borsch driving with one hand with his arm on the door of a AA/FA. You know Mike Lovelle lives there. (Lovelle Bros A/SR) His wife Linda is very active with the Republican party in the state

Maybe we'll see you guys over here one day

Thanks Rob it is a small world. Panella Trucking. Does that bring back some images. I remember his Blown AA/GS Anglia with a 4 speed (yes 4 speed) get sideways on every shift a old Irwindale one night. Ken Dondero was an unbelievable driver. These cars were only 100 inch wheel base!! Im so glad to have my two great recreation passions as the better part of my life. Drag Racing and Softball. Both make for wonderful friendships and some "Monsta" memories :O)

As a side note if you're in Vegas did you know the guys from National Speed Center on Freemont st?
