Discussion: CHICAGO CLASSICS BOBCATS PITCHER PASSES

Chick, Lindsey here. Very sad to read your post. Played against Jimmy and you guys for 10 plus years. When he was on the mound he came at you with every pitch and with a bat he would dust you off up the middle. Outstanding ballplayer, very tough, but always a gentleman. Condolences to all the Bobcats and Jimmy's family.

Pg 44 also states "No team will be classified down after Aug 15" When you selectively apply the rules to benefit one team over another,then your organization looses creditablity. SPA has had a good name, now step up do the right thing and let's move on.

It has been close to 4 weeks and nothing from SPA. Who will be the next team to get this kind of treatment from SPA?

I believe going to Nashville will not solve anything. SPA broke their own rules and tried to justify it by saying they reserve the right to do what they think is best for softball. Why have any rules? Going to Nashville will result in nothing but possibally more rules. Again, SPA has a way around rules. Lip service, no, as of now I won't be at another SPA national.

Taits, I looked up the 50,55 and 60 AA and AAA playing at Dalton for 2008 and 2009. 2008 had 57 teams and 2009 had 47 teams. I only counted Indy 60s once even though we played AA and AAA the SAME DAY. Looks like a 10 team decline in these age groups and skill levels. Some one else can look up the others. Now I understand why teams can get re-rated, just threaten not to come. This looks very ugly.

Mad Dog, I agree with you on senior cost. Senior softball is a business and the owner should make a FAIR profit, but also should put out a good product. SPA Dalton cost $600 plus and did not follow their own rules. This to me is not a good product.Indy 60s was not the only team re-rated at Dalton. Lala said SPA had to do it to a 70s team the week before. Just like any other product, if it's not worth the money, I am not buying.

When SSWC followed SPA's lead and re-rated us, it cost them $450.00 and the locals 4 to 7 days of 18 plus people spending money in the area.We can put our time and money to better use by supporting organizations that remembers who the customers are. Missing the Winter Nationals suck.Hopefully it will still be above freezing in Indiana and we can practice outside.

I have been to the SPA Nationals 8 years in a row,some years twice. Someone has forgot who the customer is. I will spend my time and money with an organization that appreciates the business. SPA thinks it's the only game in town. Time to show them how wrong they are.

Cat, I agree. In the 60s tourney,2 AAA teams said they would not come if they were not re-rated. Any one can check SPA's web site and see who is still rated AAA that played AA. My problem is not with the teams,they told SPA what it would take to get them to go and with a wave of the magic re-rating wand it came to be. Is it me or does any one else see a pattern here?

SBall6,What's the difference between a strong AA team and a not so strong AAA team? Last year Indy 60s was a good team and won nothing,this year they added some players and became a really good AA team and got moved up after pool games at a national tourney. They did what you just said to do and got moved. Now do it again? We followed the SPA rules. The "honorable, christian gentleman" did not and we got penalized for it.

I played 55 AAA this weekend in Dalton. We played 2 teams twice, once in pool and once in tourney play each. Both teams played hard and clean in all games, no sand bagging, but both teams had new players for the tourney games.I have no problems with this because it is with in the rules and makes sense. My point, pool play is NOT an accurat measurement of a teams ability and to re-rate after pool play is just WRONG. We Indy60s didn't open this can of worms, Ridge did. To close it, he needs to admit the mistake and put us where we belong untill we win something. How about it Ridge? Do the right thing.

taits,there will be no response from SPA or Ridge. He made a mistake and will keep quiet and let this die a slow death. I saw him today and it was hand shaking and kissing babies.What goes around comes around. If you play SPA, beware!!

Hi Lemons,Tell coach I gave Hooks his letter.I had my Indy 60s hat on when I did.Ridge could not say enough good things about you. Said you two were playing phone tag.We lost our 1st game 15 to 16. On a 4 hour rain delay now. So far no team has been moved up or down.Tell the team I am pushing every chance I get.

Corky,you will be an animal at 60 next year.We, the Indy 60s are trying to improve our skills by playing leagues together and by the "Hit Club". Some teams try to improve their chances of winning by sneaking in and out of Mr. Hooks's trailer.We play pool games as hard as we play championship games.No sandbagging. Thanks for your support.You would look good in Gray/Blk
