Discussion: Best Outfielder

I'm surprised no one mentioned the guy (sorry, donít know his name) who plays r. center for the KC Kids. He is the fastest guy Iíve ever seen run the bases in senior ball. Weíve played them twice in Phoenix the last two years and didnít get him out. He hit a ball to our l. centerfielder, and was on third before our guy, who is a very competent fielder, could get it in. Then he hit one about 80 ft. over the fence the next time. He takes away hits with his speed and has a good arm too.

Discussion: Dear Einstein and Dirty

Southpaw, it is a good idea, but youíll never get Gary to show up. Itís too easy for him to hide behind his keyboard and call people names. He never has anything positive to say about anything. If someone poses a question, or posts to make a point about something, he goes on the attack. His ďDevils AdvocateĒ game has become unbearable for all.

I donít presume to speak for everybody (unlike some of us), but the players Iíve talked to that frequent this forum hate the circus that itís become. You have guys coming on the board all the time to say they would post more, and have a lot more to contribute to discussions, but they are so turned off with the negativity he spews that they just stay silent. I truly feel that SSUSA only allows him to stay (after being kicked off here twice before) because he rants about Einstein, their ball nemesis. But itís not only Einstein that he attacks, itís everybody. Einsteinís blitzkrieg of ball rants, while extremely annoying, pale in comparison to his venom. SSUSA, please just look at his previous body of work and reconsider your ďfree speechĒ approach to his posts, for the betterment of all.

Discussion: Phoenix Worlds

I agree, the fields at Grayhawk were maintained very well. The most important thing, in my opinion, is the batters boxes. Between games, most tournaments just scrape dust into 4 or 5 inch holes and make them look pretty - until the first batter scrapes the dust out of the holes so he doesnít slide out of the box on his stride. Grayhawkís crew would scrape out the dust, water the boxes, mix it with the dust, and tamp. By game time (just a matter of minutes), they were ideal. The boxes at the Cal Cup and the St. George fields at the Spring Worlds were great too. By the way, Dave was the TD at two of the parks I mentioned.

Discussion: At last, A Ball Solution

Gary, no one has to wait to get his or her own emails from him. They can read the ones you get from him on this message board when you post them. His messages to you were an attempt to get the ridiculous pissing match between the two of you off the board and out of our faces. You are the one that foisted it on us by pasting them on the board. (Personally, I think you did that because it scared you that he was able to get your email address, and you wanted to everyone to know in case he showed up on your doorstep foaming at the mouth.) As it is, his decision to take it off the board is just about the only thing that I have ever agreed with him about. You have no business commenting or lobbying about changes in our game, or calling people names because you donít play. Why not just stay away from the board like you stay away from the fields. Youíve been kicked off other boards (and this one twice) and I think the only reason SSUSA lets you stay here now is that they like the fact that you harp at him, their perceived ball nemesis. Do everyone a favor and just go away.

Discussion: Grayhawk Park Softball Complex

Doker, I agree with softball4b. Moreover, I think SSUSA Staff would agree too if they thought about it. Hypothetically, you could have 59-year-old guys covering the larger outfields instead of 49-50 year old guys. Common sense just tells you that 50ís should be on the larger fields regardless of ďwhose turn it isĒ.

Discussion: LVSSA strikes again

Michigan native, believe me, LVSSA knew these teams were rated major weeks before the tournament. Why they allowed it I'll never know. Money talks.

Discussion: Looking for a team to play for in Las Vegas

Jan, I would think "Fraudian" is in itself a "Freudian" slip.

Coach55:

At the time that The Double Nickel team from last year entered the LVSSA they were only rated major by SSUSA, not the other organizations. In fact, they were allowed to enter an SSUSA AAA qualifier by the tournament director, who knew they weren't a legitimate major team. The ONLY major tournament they played last year was Phoenix. By the way, I've seen the two teams play this year, and they compete very well at major. In fact, one of the teams attended the Cal Cup, and I heard more than one person comment that they thought they were "a very good team".

Discussion: Cal State Championships

Iím bumping this back up to the top to see if I can stimulate the conscience of the guy who has my teammateís camera. We had the 3:30 game on field #2 on Saturday, and somebody on our team put the camera in the wrong bag in our dugout (first base side). As it turns out, it was PROBABLY the bag of someone from the 2:00 game. SSUSA wonít give out the phone info for the manager of the team that had that dugout, but if he is reading it here, we ask that he contact Andy Smith, mgr. of the Double Nickel 55ís. This camera isnít tiny like a lot of the digital ones on the market. It is a large one, and resembles an older style SLR and is not something you could miss in your bat bag. Therefore, we ask all the guys from that team to check their bags to see if they might mistakenly have something that doesnít belong to them. Thanks for your help.

Discussion: TOC 2010

Weatherman, your situation is almost word for word describing our situation last year. We won three tournaments (none of which was a ďringĒ tournament), playing the same 2 teams in 7 of the games, and were moved up. It was a joke. We were never able to get anything out of Terry either, and still havenít. Since then they have moved a lot of the other AAA teams up, so we are competitive in the division.

Discussion: Cal State Championships

Just wanted to say that the Cal Cup major fields were run very well. Nice facility and the grounds crew did a good job of keeping the fields moist. It was a very competitive tournament and we had a good time this weekend. Congrats to Chubb on their victory.

On another note, one of our guys lost his camera in the dugout on Saturday. Somebody put it in a bat bag, and as it turned out, it wasnít anyone on our teamís bag. If somebody finds it in his bag, please contact Andy Smith, mgr. of the Double Nickels. Thanks.

Rocketman, yes, I do play with him. He's okay, as long as he's not giving directions.
