Discussion: How To Improve One's Arm?

I've played with and against Hombre and he already has an above average arm and I agree with light weight training but have 100% percent success with the weighted balls. I wouldn't suggest them for someone who is doing rehab after surgery but to strentghen lobbing them works. Shouldn't be trying to throw them hard, just like long toss. Remember it's been 6 years since he had the surgery.

Discussion: Poll on discussions and posters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was just asking if the majority of the people on this board are tired of all the childish bantering and forever hi-jacking ever thread to highlight there pet peeves with useless garbage over and over and over.
And yes many are already looking to other posting places just because of crew that needs "TURN OUT THE LIGHTS"

Dam, Hombre you are OLD!!!!!!!
Missed you this past weekend.

I suggest you get a set of the weighted balls (9 to 12oz) and work starting with the 9oz and working up to the 12oz and throw as much as you can. Don't try to overthrow to start with, just lobbing them will start to give your arm strength. When you switch to the normal playing ball it will feel like a feather since they weigh 6.5ozs and I'll bet you throw the normal one after the weighted ones into the ground or very low. We have at least a dozen people in our league that use these and one of them could only throw underhand but is now playing SS with at least a better than average arm.
If you need info on where to buy let me know and I'll get you the cheapest suppliers info.

Discussion: Poll on discussions and posters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok let's get back to the original question/poll!!!!

Who would like to join a poll that threads NOT be dominated by a certain few individuals who are at each others throats all the time.
They never can agree with each other on ANYTHING and we have heard all we need to hear about certain issues with equipment, rules, balls etc. from them. We would probably get more posters with more/different views instead of the same few doing the majority of the posting and being at each others throats instead of discussing the issue at hand.
Gives us a break guys and quit dominating every discussion!!!!!!!!!

Discussion: Hit today a 275 by 52 ball

AAA
The 52 ball is just about like the RIF softballs bought at Walmart(cheap and soft). Just about like an old pair of dirty socks.

Birdie,
How did you guys end up?
We were runner-ups to South Florida heat.
Man what a job the ground crew did to those fields after 4-6 inches of rain by Saturday night at dark I think everything was caught up. Didn't really like the 5 inning games but we all played them so it was as fair as could be.

I known that Boaz, Gadsden and Anniston also have Senior Leagues along with what you have in Birmingham and also Montgomery. I think there are also some around Auburn, Dothan and Mobile.

Discussion: heartland softball

I went last year and the only that was good and consistent were the fields and complex. Herb was in the hospital and it was very poorly run. Rules changes every game and sometimes every inning. Strike zone changed game to game along with homerun rules. We asked to use the safety zone for pitchers because the rubbers were placed two close and finally the teams went out and we removed the rubber and made a line where it should have been. This was ok till somebody went and tatteled and they came and stopped the game and put a chalk line where it was previously, good thing nobody was injuried because they were violating a field setting and a safety zone for the pitchers.
Just my opinion!!!!!!!!!

Discussion: Survey Time:

Stick,

Yes I'd play with the combo and the USSSA ball is 40/325 and you can tell when someone hits it with a cheater stick.

Perly,
The NSA ball was 44/400 and the bats for NSA/USSSA are all the same. I don't know of any that differ or are banned in one assoc and not the other.

My preference also is the current bat/ball combo but if the majority voted to hit wood bats I'd still play.

I despise the 52/275 as you might as well hit a rubber bouncy ball or an old pair of socks.

Perly,
Did you guys win Sunday?
I think we could have hung around a little longer provided we would have had at least 10 players. it really took a toll in the second game against Dixie as the outfielders had no legs left.

Discussion: Old South

Mad dog,

The spirits of ammonia I believe are marked for inhalous ammonia which means the fumes are safe to inhale when diluted.
The other ammonia is cheaper but is a cleaner and doesn't dilute well and is dangerous and can be deadly to inhale.
It's hot in the South and we don't want no Dead Dogs swelling up!!!!!!!

Discussion: Old South

Garocket,

That's just the way we do it and we add the Gatoraid and other drinks to keep hydrated.
But say you flew in or had a large group traveling together it's often difficult to have room for coolers and cases of water etc. and if you are on the field for 5 straight hours it's hard to keep the coolers filled with ice.
The norm has been an ice water cooler in every dugout.
Just my comments and thoughts about how a new tourney went and was run.

Discussion: Old South

We played on the same fields for 5 hours on Sunday and water is needed. Our team brings our own but when you are there for 5 hours you run low.
If you play in 100 degress out west try playing in the South when 95 degrees with the high humidity equals 110 to 115 degree heat indexes.
Clearly this tourney wasn't prepared.
They did go and purchase 3 coolers for 3 fields but when it was down to one field they didn't have water in each dougout as most tourneys do.
They used one UMP for each game including the elimination games.
One female UMP was wrong on every close call for both teams and didn't know how to call balls and strikes at all along with not knowing what an illegal pitch was or how to call it. I was told she also had a very short fuse and liked to eject players.
At least the TD stepped up and replaced her for the championship game.
But what has happened to having two UMPS in the elimanation games.
The UMP also ran the scoreboard and kept up with all the subs and pinch runners as he should.
The last tourney we went to had two UMPS for all games and a scorekeeper and scoreboard operator.
It's all about the $$$$$$$$$$.

Discussion: ASA Bats

Check out the Miken FREAK FX-700 both balanced and endload, along with Worth 454 ASA verions balanaced and endload.
They have lime green handles to make them readily seen as ASA versions.
They do take a lot of breaking in.
Easton Salvo isn't bad either but also requires a lot of break in time.
