Discussion: How Important of a Stat is Batting Average?

I'm not sure why we even need to have all-tourney players at our age. The team award should be the ultimate prize...

Discussion: Dear Dirty

Gary19, By the number of your posts an EVERY SUBJECT, it is very clear to the rest of us that you are very passionate about senior softball (and for the record, a lot of us happen to agree with you on these issues). But constantly defending and re-stating your position on every subject isn't necessary, and quite frankly, is a turn off. WE GET IT! Sometimes less is more...

A couple of other posters dominated every discussion with their rants, and they ended up losing the opportunity to voice their opinions. Not trying to be mean, just honest.

Discussion: For the Love of the Game

Hit the Gap, I'm living proof that there IS crying in baseball (after watching the video). Don't think I'll be complaining about "stuff" too much anymore...

Discussion: Wishing All A Merry Christmas

Lively bats and balls... er, umm... sorry about that guys... Merry Christmas and a healthy, happy, and prosperous New Year to all (and that also includes Einstein and Gary C). Game - Set - Match!

Discussion: Courtesy Runner Positive & Negative Views

Wow, Dirty! 45" chest? 36" waist? 17" arms? Very impressive! In my mind I picture you as another Paul Teuttle Sr. (of American Chopper fame). I can't remember the last time, if ever, that I measured myself, except for my weight, blood pressure, and cholesteral...

To keep in shape I do a few 12 ounce curls, especially in the parking lot after games!

Discussion: Courtesy Runner Positive & Negative Views

Maybe a good way to stop the abuse of this rule (putting in a rabbit in a run scoring situation) is to have each team designate which player(s) needs a courtesy runner before the game starts. I know a few excellent players with new knees and hips that have been instructed by their doctor to limit their running.

Discussion: What about Fathers?

As a kid, I grew up watching my dad play (3b and lead-off hitter). Then got a chance to play on the same team with him in a church league for about 10 years. He's now 85 years old and finally stopped playing when he reached 80!

Discussion: How many guys have had the pleasure of playing with their son(s)?

Playing with your kids is the best! I have had the pleasure of playing with my 3 sons and son-in-law in city leagues and weekend tourneys for the last 5 years. Currently playing weekend tournaments on a father - son team: 3 of us dads and the rest are all our sons. Nothin' better...

Discussion: February Tournament of Champions Polk County

Sorry I missed the previous discussion about this. Why not have an end of the year TOC in late Oct. / early Nov. in a warm weather state, and continue the "long term contract with the people in Florida" by calling it the season's "Opening Weekend" tournament? Might actually draw more tournament champions for the year's finale. I know - too much change...

Discussion: February Tournament of Champions Polk County

I know this has been talked about before, but shouldn't the TOC should be the last tournament of the calender year instead of the first? A lot of teams have moved up / re-tooled / disbanded / etc. by February...

Discussion: How did you get your start in softball?

After college baseball and two years of semi-pro league, I started playing fast pitch softball - what a blast! Still can't believe the things some of the pitchers could do with a pitched ball.

After moving to CA., slow pitch was the only thing available. A little anti-climactic at first, but now it's one of the joys of life! Currently playing 2 nights a week city league (one of those with my 3 sons) in addition to senior ball. Let's play two!

Discussion: A New Normal?

A lot of us have noticed and appreciated the kinder, more civil tone to this discussion board the last few days (and a couple of missing posters?).

Thanks to SSUSA staff for allowing this website to return to what it was intended to be.

Let's play ball!

Thanks, taits, for the awesome post.

And JR, your post put a lump in my throat and brought a tear to my eye.

I think I'll be shopping at Sears this week...
