Discussion: Best cleats

i used to wear Nike cleats for 30 years, last year went to the Mizuno multi spike turf shoe with gel insoles ,man wish i had done that 20 years ago (wouldn't have the bone spurs that i have now) these shoes are awesome, feet don't hurt anymore after games as they did in the past. great traction ,fit,comfort and durability. got them at sports authority on sale for $45(reg cost$60),great shoe.

i would have to say ,average ,with great personality, that is a great team player. chemistry is the most important thing for having successful teams, at least successful for many years as a team.it helps if they have talent ,but if they don't mesh with the rest what good is the talent. i have got rid of many talented great players,because they were either stuck on them selves,and thought they were the team and didn't need any one else,and criticized everyone. don't need them. give me a average player with team attitude,the basic skills,and knows the fundamentals of the game and we will win games and have fun at the same time.

Hello Gentlemen. Just what is it that you guys want. i am a new blood and a young blood to the senior softball world. i just turned 50 and just getting into playing the senior circuit in Colorado. ,but i have been playing this game for 30 years , and have played at every level there is to play in and have played in many big tournaments. i have also been a representative for ASA(commissioner)and now the new commissioner for the CSSTL in Colorado, and also been a player rep,tournament director, also have umpired. i also have complaints about things and even being commissioner for the ASA and CSSTL doesn't mean you can change everything. ,having a union doesn't get you that either but giving your input constantly could be as bad of a thing as a good thing.boycotting tournaments could get your point across but most TD's wont care because they will still get teams to show up and play because they love the game.now as i said at the beginning i have complaints also ,i don't agree with everything that ASA,CSSTL,USSSA,SSUSA,NSA,ISA. but they all have their reasons and purpose's .now i want everyone to know i am not posting to start a fight or ,make enemy's ,just trying to understand what everyone wants on this site.i am not trying to criticize anyone either. but some guys seem to be bouncing all over this site about complaining about the balls, bats,tournament sites,tournament directors. but no one has said what they want or what they would do if they could change things. complaining about things is good but not giving ideas how to change it ,is nothing but whining and insecure about your thoughts and ideas ,and to that i say hog wash. give ideas guys " not unions or boycotts" . why not start new associations or having your own tournaments, forming new leagues . i myself ,i am going to start my own tournament series, and maybe a softball club. not just for senior softball ,but for softball players in general. yes there will be rules but very few, the game is supposed to be fun,not corporate, but i myself am a very competitive so you need to cater to everyone. but you have to have some rules so people stay safe, reason for that is because today's society is sue happy. and liability insurance is expensive so when you talk about the high cost of tournaments it is because the cost to put one on is not cheap. and yes they make a profit but it is not that much. like i said i agree with some of you ,but i disagree with some of you. but we are human and we have that right to have different thoughts . so my suggestion to some of you is instead of fighting with each other and putting each other down . join forces ,state your ideas in writing and do something about the problems ,don't be part of them. and no it doesn't have to be politics( i hate politics,always back stabbing). so what do you guys say do you want to be part of the change or do you want to be part of the problems.so if any of you want to chat ,throw ideas around ,and try to be part of the change e-mail me and lets do something about it. Charlie softball1980@gmail.com thanks all for reading and god bless everyone and the best wishes and happiest holidays to all of you and your families.

Discussion: At last, A Ball Solution

drama drama drama gentleman please grow up and act your age , everyone stop whining about things you have no control over. i have been playing for 30 years and just started playing in senior leagues and this is ridiculous . if you are a ball player ,the ball should not matter, the bat should not matter,safety should be first, fun should be second.i am very very very competitive player myself and hate losing.i am a commissioner for a association and a league and i like to have everything as competitive as possible ,but not at the risk of my fellow players,and playing as sportsman should also be pointed out here. some of you are still living your glory days when you were in your 20's ,well you not in your 20's and your glory days are not the same.so what has happen to the following, safety,sportsmanship,fun,class,. it seems a lot of guys are still living in there 20's and 30's. that is good, but most of us don't care so take the drama elsewhere and have some fun for once. good day and for the ones who love the game ,keep playing and having fun.
