Topic: General and miscellaneous
Discussion: What sport consisted of your athletic career?

Started my athletic career when I was 9 back in 1969 playing Little League baseball down in Chula Vista, CA. My first team was the Crewcuts (team picture on my Facebook page) in Minors and then followed my older brother Johnny (Oh My - Fresno)through the Major & Senior leagues achieving All-Star status as a 12-,14-,and 15-year old as an outfielder/pitcher. Oh yeah, my PARKVIEW Little League won the World Series in 2009. I only got as far as Sections in the Majors. Played high school baseball for 3 years (JV MVP '76) and played 3rd string defensive back for the football team in my senior year. Joined the Air Force in 1978 and retired in 1998, along the way playing slowpitch for various squadrons and base teams. Player/Coach for the Miller Lite All-Stars (AF, Navy, Marines) on Guam from 1990-92. Arrived in Sacramento in 1992 playing for the McClellan Jets until I retired in '98. Went to work for Dept. of Corrections and have been on the law enforcement circuit since '99. Dislocated my throwing shoulder back in '83 while playing flag football as the QB and Safety. Did it while pulling a flag. Suffice to say, sat out for a couple of years then came back playing as a pitcher, 2nd & 1st base. Highest level ever played was the ASA Class C Nationals in Midland, TX in '93. Played with Scott's in ASA 40+ Nationals play and have been with the East Bay Oldies since '09.

Discussion: Combat Centenarian Senior Softball Bat. Fully Loaded - durability?

Have a 27 oz. balanced. Broke my black MIKEN Ultra II this year. Second one in two years. In my bag now (2011 WORTH Toxic XXX, 2012 Worth 454, COMBAT Senior Gear, Maroon Short Barrel, Centenarian, REEBOK Melee Legend balanced & end loaded, DEMARINI The One 26 oz., MIKEN Ultra II Maxload, 2012 Ultra II (Made in the USA)). All are SENIOR 27 oz. except as noted. Used the COMBAT Senior Gear last weekend at the Winter Worlds. Usually stay with one bat until it breaks. Probably have about less than 150 swings on the Centenarian. Has POP like the other senior bats in my bag.

If we have just 7 teams in Major Plus, we should just play round robin and best record wins the RING! Good Luck to all!

Got my 27-ouncer and was hot right out of the wrapper. Might break it out in Phoenix. Hopefully, it'll last at one full season for this 5'10, 190 pounder.

Discussion: Miken's defective bats

Just broke my Black MIKEN Ultra II this past weekend in Turlock. Almost made it through the 2011 season. Breaking out the COMBATs (Senior Gear & Centenarian) for LVSSA Masters in two weeks. Also, just ordered the 2012 WORTH 454 senior bat. Have the DEMARINI "The One" senior bat but have yet to use it in game play. Durability is an issue according to Ricky ("Barons"). He got 4 to try out not too long ago and the longest one lasted about 180 swings.

Discussion: What would you do

Just my two cents. If you don't want to get smacked/spun (intentional/unintentional), find another position. Three years in Senior ball and 25+ years elsewhere, I've been hit square once and it was a good friend of mine who apologized all the way down the 1st base line. For me, I don't look for an apology and it doesn't matter to me whatsoever. My teammates might have a different take on it but oh well. I got smacked (back of the glove) twice in one game last year in Carson City & I thought my hand was broken. Just badly bruised I suppose cause I didn't make a trip to the doctor. One guy apologized and the other player was silent. Cool either way. I was just pissed cause I couldn't get my glove turned around fast enough and was pissed the second time cause it HURTED. I just like playing the game competetively hard and when the game ends, sportsmanship is displayed by handshake/fist smack/high five/butt slap/man hugs by the two teams. Its all good! It is what it is (always wanted to say that)!

Discussion: How do the other major teams feel about major and major plus in western national

I'm 5'10" & 190 lbs. and have been playing softball since 1978 with a couple years off for a dislocated shoulder injury which relegated me to find another position other than the outfield. I started pitching and playing first and second base and played well enough to be competitive through the years. Highest civilian classification I've ever played at was ASA Class "C" Nationals. Played on base teams throughout my 20 years in the Air Force. Now going on my third year with the EAST BAY OLDIES with a TOC win in Florida last year and a 2nd place finish in the 2009 SSUSA World Championships. We got bumped to Major Plus after winning Rockin Reno in '09 and have never looked back. What makes a MAJOR PLUS team anyways? I know some old guys out there amongst the various teams have played and excelled at a higher level than me for sure. I don't consider myself a MAJOR PLUS player if thats going to be the top level. I think we should have another division called MAJOR WANNABE or go to A, AA, AAA, Major just like MLB. We've been beaten by MAJOR teams. If we win all the RING tournaments and the World Championships in one year, we'll definitely need to be re-classified as AWESOME or MAJOR PLUS PLUS.

Discussion: still looking

WHO CARES is a 50s team that has a few players from Solano County. OH MY (Fresno) might be looking for players. You need to visit the tournaments on the NCSSA & SSUSA circuits. Get some face time with the managers/coaches. Look for SENIOR leagues in your locality. Lots of SENIOR tournament players play during the week to get their workouts in. Hope this helps.

Discussion: Which Miken is the most durable? Red Gray or Black

Had all three (Balanced (Black), Slightly endloaded (Gray), & Max endloaded (Red)) at one time. At 5'10" 190 lbs., got plenty of use out of the BLACK one, less than 100 swings on the GRAY before it broke, and still have the RED one cause I hardly use it. Teammate of mine almost snapped his in half and he definitely had less than 100 swings. Have a new BLACK one, with the new Blue COMBAT and the new WORTH Toxic XXX and just ordered the COMBAT Centenarian.
