Discussion: Winter World Balls

Just for the record the "Rock" used by the LVSSA is a Trump brand ball, same core and compression as the Trump ball used by the SSUSA.

Discussion: Need A Hitter for LVSSA 60's This Weekend?

I know it's late, but if any team participating in the LVSSA 60's division (any level)needs a "hitter" (I can Catch or AH) please contact me thru this site. I am a member of the LVSSA and can get myself added to any roster quickly and easily. If there is any interest leave a number and I'll call you. I recently participated in the 65 Major division of the LVSSA and had a OBA of .680.

Also, looking for a chance to participate in the SSUSA Phoenix World's in either the 65's or 60's or both.

Discussion: hip replacement

Never going to be full speed again (I was never fast anyway). I was 62 when this all started. If you are younger, lighter and otherwise in good shape you should regain at least 85% of your speed, but sorry to say running will never be a "strength" in your overall game again.

Discussion: hip replacement

I had one replaced Dec. 2007 and one in January 2009. Just now getting my legs under me. I had complications (c-diff, almost died) and MERSA. Didn't help that I gained 40 pounds while recovering. I am playing again (catch/AH), but until I drop the weight running is still difficult.

Don't know your size or weight but you must keep your weight under control as it greatly affects the stress on your new hips; do the rehab faithfully and I believe you will be ok to run again, but rounding the bases with any kind of speed will be a challenge. Good Luck!

I agree, he is an excellent player, super fast, will have a high OBA, can flat out go get'em in the outfield and is an excellent teammate!

There are no 50 AAA or AA Vegas teams. You can't go wrong picking him up!

Discussion: Please Explain This Rule to ME???

Just watched a Vegas team play in the SSUSA spring nationals in Mesquite that had 5 (FIVE) California players on it.

The ban is one way, no bordering state players can play on a California team, but California players can play on bordering state teams!

Think about it; is that ridiculous or what?!

Discussion: hip replacement

I had one hip replaced in Dec. 07 (still giving me trouble) the other in January 09 (like new). I am playing again as catcher and AH, but just barely able to get to first base.Two things have caused me problems, serious weight gain (about 40 pounds)and I contracted c-diff with the first replacement (almost killed me) and MERSA with the 2nd, so my circumstances have not been typical.

With proper rehab and proper weight for your body type I believe you should return to near normal running ability. I wish you a healthy recovery and a quick return to softball.

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

I have 2 sons that I played with in a "kids" league in Vegas at Sunset park, we also went back to back to back, but they all counted! I was the last to bat in that sequence and was getting some real pressure from my sons , but the "old man" came through and never let them forget it. It was great fun and a great, unforgettable experience! It was even covered in a short blurb in the local paper.

Ridge had a major contribution to my participation in Senior Softball. I fervently wish him a full and speedy recovery - we need his continued presence and influence in our/his game.

From my family to his our prayers are with you!

Discussion: 52 x 275 ball

Would the SSUSA,SPA, LVSSA and other Senior organizations (I know you read this board) care to comment on your specific stance on the 52/275 ball?

Are you even remotely considering changing from the 44/375 ball to the 52/275 ball? If so, when.

Me and others I am familiar with want to know if we should by new Bats or new Golf Clubs (seriously).

Discussion: Senior bats and Lively Balls?

Actually, I have been on this board many times before as "The Pro", but I had to change to something else because my e-mail address changed. Einstein knows me all too well. I'm 65 and a member of the SSHOF who has been out of action for the last 2+ years due to various ailments including having both hips replaced.

I have a different perspective as to the defensive aspect of the game. I feel the present bat/ball equipment requires better defensive play and I greatly admire those who play "between" the white lines (I'm now only a AH/Catcher).

As a member of the LVSSA I can tell you there are VERY few of our club members who would like to change from our current bat/ball combo. In fact in our every Tuesday/Thursday scrimmages we use all Senior bats and the best 44/375 ball made, the Trump Micro Cell. We have mixed players from all age groups and levels playing against each other. For the record we use a screen and find it alters the very little (I have never seen a throw from the infield or the outfield ever hit it).

I really believe the only way the two sides of this discussion will ever agree is to give each of them a venue using the equipment they prefer.

Discussion: Senior bats and Lively Balls?

Omar, if you look into it you will find that only the Mikens are banned in Senior Tournaments at BLD parks and the reason is about politics and money, not performance.

As for the issue of hot bats/balls, maybe the solution is for Senior Softball to have a division similar to AA, where they use only USSSA/NSA equipment, thereby giving those of you who do not want to use hot bats/balls a place to play your "brand" of competition. I mean this as a serious suggestion.

The rest of us can then play our preference in peace and everyone can be happy.
