Topic: Tournaments
Discussion: Heart of Texas

Why can't we get a list of teams and a draft seeding game schedule on either the SSUSA or Texas Half Century websites like the other tournaments going on at the same time this week and weekend?
Is the Heart of Texas tournament not up to the same level as these other tournaments?

Well, less than 3 days until the 65s and older age groups are scheduled to play in Georgetown. Has ANYONE heard anything at this late date?

I had a cheeseburger and fries in the snack bar and suffered no ill effects. Actually, they were pretty good.

Donnie, I would love to go to Dalton; however, the 65 Major team I'm on has not decided if we are going. We ARE going to Vegas for the Worlds.

LOL Dennis! I enjoyed your post very much and am sad to see that "Your Georgeness" has loosed the hounds on Event Labs on the unsuspecting ranks of mortal 65 Major teams (such as us on the San Antonio Silver Streaks)!
I guess we will lace 'em up and get after them in Vegas.

Nancy, thank you for expressing so succinctly what many of us real "senior" players enjoy about the game. Larry Lopez 65s (70s next year).

Discussion: Player in Houston

JB, if you are a right-handed hitter, the ball does not fly out at Bayland on Field 2 unless you are a dead pull hitter. Played there 8 years and the league is excellent and organized (draft) by skill levels. The only knock is that they play single games twice weekly. BUT they do have batting practice before the first game each week and, if teams are short-handed, they have a procedure in place to allow pick-ups to play. HCSSL is a very fun, competitive league.

Discussion: Hot Bats and Hrs

I agree 100% with Gary's analysis. I've been playing 65 Major Plus the last 4 years and I cannot recall one time that we have hit our allotted home runs in a game. More accurately, we often don't hit that number for the entire tournament.
Even when I played in the 50s and 55s, we did not hit home runs "at will" but we did hit quite a few back then! Of course, when I started Senior ball the Demarini was all the rage!

WalksDaughter, Please pass along to your Dad my congratulations! I had the pleasure of playing one season with Bruce with the Hendricks Sports Management team back in the mid-90s. Quite a man and quite a hitter!

Steve is a great hitter and a Christian man! Any team will benefit from adding Steve to their roster!
Best of luck in getting hooked up in Colorado or a bordering state!

Gary, I guess I won't be playing in the Mesquite tournament next year when I'm eligible to play up with you REAL senior guys! I can't cover the gaps on a 300 foot field now let alone a baseball field!
I Would suggest SSUSA (if they don't already have them scheduled) have EMTs at those huge fields where the 70s are to play.

Discussion: BUDDY HOPPER, TEXAS LEGENDS 70'S PASSES

Frankie, so sorry to hear of Buddy's passing - I am totally shocked. I really enjoyed my year playing with Buddy as our coach on the Guru Softball team in 2011. I had the distinct pleasure of having dinner with Buddy and getting to know the man off the softball field. He was truly a gentleman and will be missed.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: A.D. Starr bats

DieselDan, these bats are the Nightmare and are created by Kevin Schulstrom (Tattoball on this site). I have a 27oz which has a 2 ounce end load. They also have a 28 oz with a 3 ounce end load.
There are several big boys in Senior ball who have been swinging the Nightmare quite successfully. In addition to Kevin, Mark Canegallo (Buddah) and Pete Smith (from NJ) are guys I know who were swinging this bat back in the Fall when I bought mine in Virginia at the ISSA Nationals.
It took me quite a while to get used to the extra end load but I now like the feel and performance of this bat. It is very durable and I have heard of several guys who have several thousand swings on theirs.
I will use either this bat or the Dudley Lightning this year once we get to actually play some softball in Oklahoma!
