Topic: Tournaments
Discussion: Dalton Georgia

Just checked the SPA website for ANY information about when we play on THURSDAY. There is nothing available 5 days prior to the start of our 60 Major division. I've seen on this site that someone said there are 7 teams in the 60 Majors. That is all I've seen to date. I even called SPA HQ yesterday and was told they were working on the brackets. I do know the deadline was July 5 so we should have seen something this week.
Does anyone on this site know any particulars - I seem to be out of the loop.

We played an SPA tournament at this complex in early May and the same comments were made at that time. Pretty much exactly the same. AND the SSUSA Labor Day classic and the SPA World Series are scheduled for the same place! I hope our team votes to not go and save our bucks for the Winter Nationals in Phoenix!

Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe Dave is playing tournament ball with the Mayhem 55s out of OKC now.

crusher, based on a pure numbers review, there were 44 teams in Houston this year and 46 teams in Dallas last year.

Discussion: New Worth Legit 2 Piece Senior 1st test results.....

To the best of my recollection, Clatta swings only Worth bats. And Beasley is correct; Clatta could turn the bat upside down and swing the barrel and still hit them out!

Frankie, it sure is! I am leaving Reno today so Pam was home alone. No damage up in NW OKC in our neighborhood, but tornado warning sirens went off several times. Scary times but I will still be glad to get home!

Jack Eberhard is going around from complex to complex. He posts his pictures on this site under Jack's Action shots.

Discussion: Heart of Texas (Georgetown)

My team (Texas Heat) is rated 60 Major. We are an "old" 60s team with several guys over 65. Our first seeding game was against a 50 Major team WITH NO SPOT (runs or 11 defensive players). We got killed 24-2. We played 2 - 50 teams in the seeding games and 55 AAA teams the rest of the games. We never played any 60 teams. Usually, we play 60 AAAs and spot runs or the extra defender. I'm not sure what happened here but usual SSUSA rules do not appear to have been used.

Topic: Tournaments
Discussion: Promoting Tournaments

I have experienced teams not going to tournaments because a certain team was entered first-hand. We signed up early for a tournament a few years ago and when some other teams - who had already entered - found out, they dropped out and we had no one to play. I've also been to tournaments (qualifiers) where teams would rather forfeit than play us. It is not fun to (a) not get to play games because teams simply do not want to play you and (b) teams just dropping out because a particular team has entered. This experience was at the Major Plus level.

I got mine from Corky in Phoenix in 2011 and have enjoyed them ever since. He sells them from the Miken truck at the tournaments he attends.

Discussion: Talk regarding illegal bats

I, too, may be naive, but I play in 60 Major and 65 Major Plus and I just don't see much, if any, evidence of bat tampering. I do see an occasional "strange" bat being used by a guy or two, but it's extremely unusual. By strange, I mean a USSSA bat instead of a senior bat...and that could be the hitters' preference to use a more durable bat. JMO.

Harry, I think as long as the ball is in your possession, administering a tag whether or not the ball is in your glove constitues an out. I remember once in Virginia while playing the outfield, I went after a fly ball and the wind moved it just as I was about to make the catch. I wound up catching it bare-handed in my right hand! Luck, of course, but the ump rang up the out!

Discussion: Senior Bomb Squad 2 and Swing Makeover Series Episode #5 now up on youtube

Bogie, Great video! I enjoyed seeing my pals Dave Reed and Steve Imlay representing us 60+ dudes. I don't know Bobby Davis that well yet but since he plays with Ed Rose he must be a very patient individual! LOL! Wish Clatta had been on there, too!

Those shots Dave were hitting looked like the bombs he dropped on us last year in Las Vegas!

Hoovedog, I use old metal bats when it gets cold here in Oklahoma City. I've cracked the gold C405 EST already this year and started a crack on an old a TPS. They do last a long time but do give out. However, I can't crack my old 35 oz Dave Carroll Sports Bombat,

Discussion: AAA HR rule question

I'd rather play 1-pitch if we are in such a hurry to get games done. It is, after all, as the 1-1 proponents say, a hitters game. That way the hitter will be agressive from the get-go!
