Topic: Bats
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!

Discussion: Best Cold Weather Bat

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!

Ron, Looking forward to it! We played the Full Circle guys in Las Vegas in the 60s. Woody and Billy Steele, among others. I'm sure they'll be glad to add you guys to the mix.

Discussion: AAA Home Runs

I can tell you that in the 65 Major Plus bracket, home runs were NOT the rule (except when Dave Reed from Florida Thunder was at the plate). We (Omen) played 7 games and I'll bet we did not hit 15 TOTAL in the 7 games. I think Dave hit 17 by himself in one of the best exhibitions of power hitting I've ever seen. And then there's Turn 2 with 4 legitimate home run hitters. They just out-powered (and outhit) everyone.

Donnie, I'm still playing with Omen. I'm sure GSF will be a handful.

You guys really crushed us in the NA Championship game. Also, congrats on the 65 M+ championship. It was good to see all my "old" friends from the East even though the whooping we took was not fun!

Looking forward to what y'all do next year with James and Larry moving up with you.

Ron, It's not like Dave Dowell, et. al., don't know you! As long as you "youngsters" (rising 65s) are nice to your "elders", all will be well! Look forward to playing GSF in Phoenix!

Discussion: Seeding

local, there WAS a three-way tie in the 65 M+. Three teams were 2-1 and the seeds were determined by runs allowed per SSUSA rules. Turn 2 got the 1 seed, Florida Thunder the 2 seed and Omen the 3 seed.

Looks like teams that got re-rated from Major Plus down to Major returned to the top again. Welcome back to Major Plus.

Gonzalez beat our 60 Major team both times we played this year. I know most of their players and said they were Major caliber all along. Their win just goes to prove that. Welcome to the Major level!

I noticed in the 60 Majors that Ryan's Way was scheduled to play the Hawaii Masters at Arroyo Grande on Friday at 3:30 on Field 6 AND also play Top Gun Softball on Field 8 AT THE SAME TIME! Unless they've got a split squad that will be difficult!

Discussion: Texas Half Century tounaments

LP, That was the problem in the 50s, 55s and 60s. There was only one Major-rated team in each of those divisions. In the 50s it was Lonestar, in the 55s Texas Legends and in the 60s Texas Makules.
Keith put Makules with the younger guys (55s) even-up and the 60AAAs and we spotted the 5 runs.
I don't see that as a reason NOT to attend a tournament unless a team is simply afraid of playing an older one-level higher rated team. That does not make sense to me. When I played Major, we played against M+ quite frequently and took our 5 runs and tried to win. Occassionally, we did but usually thanks to the 5 runs. We never declined to play anyone higher-rated or not. I like to think it helped us when we did play very good teams in our own age bracket and our skill level. JMO.
