Discussion: Manassas, Va.

garyheifner, I could not agree more with your observation about moving up to a new age group! If you don't win in the first 2-3 years, you are on the downslope of your new age bracket and the "youngsters" will be all over you! There are a few exceptions like the Florida Legends who played 65 M+ last year with almost all their players 70 or older and did very well. Most of us are not that blessed.

Discussion: Please pray for Steve Simmons

Unbelievable! I just saw Steve a few days ago in Aurora!
My fervent prayers are with the Simmons family during this terrible time and I pray that the Great Physician touch Steve and bring him back healthy to his loved ones and friends.

Donnie, That 10-year plus spot is just too much for most of your guys. We will welcome you to the 65s next year!

Discussion: Scores for Western Regionals

Ruth Realty won the 60 Major and Omen won the 65 Major Plus. Ruth put on a gut-check Sunday, playing 4 games in a row and winning 3 with several players hobbling or suffering from the heat.

Discussion: Combining Major and Major Plus

Bruce, I've played with and against almost all the Turn 2 players over the years. Even though I know very well how they hit and where they hit, they still get the job done almost every time. And adding Pete Smith and John Davide to an already great team just makes them that much more formidable. I'm sure Omen will have our hands full when we see them in Vegas in October.

Discussion: Combining Major and Major Plus

But Harry, Turn 2 is an OLD 60 team! Next year they move to 65 and beat up on us older guys! I suspect you'll be seeing them in some of the qualifiers in SSUSA and SPA next year and wind up playing them even up in those due to the 5-year age difference supposedly negating the skill level difference (Major Plus vs Major).

Discussion: What do you pay in your local leagues

Our OKC "senior" league (43+) is based on 24 games for summer and fall sessions. $615 League entry fee, $15 per team per game for umps, $120 for 2 dozen balls. A total of $1,095 per session. We have no official score keepers nor do we have a playoff. We purchase our own uniforms.

Discussion: WESTERN NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS....A concern?

John, Both KC Kids and DK Softball were rated Major in SPA. DK won the 60 Major so back they go to Major Plus.

Discussion: Hall of Fame Inductees

Congrats to all the above-named players.
Let me also add that Randy Fithian of Old A's fame was inducted in Dalton. He has played with the Texas Makules since he retired and moved to Arkansas.
Also, Tom Tudor of Turn 2 and Jess Martinez of Omen will be inducted later this year.

Discussion: can u play if u turn 49 after september

If you play SPA or ISSA, their Winter Worlds/Nationals are in October and you can play in them also. The rule is you can play in a Winter Worlds/National if you turn 50 in the coming year.

Discussion: Combining M & M+

boston, I believe that Florida and California are now allowed to have players from adjoining states like the rest of the country. I think that rule change was effective this year.
I also think that if players were rated, some that got rated as M+ would simply stop playing the game (or play Major, if available). In some areas of the country - even a big state like Texas - there are NO active 60 or 65 Major Plus teams at this time. So, using player ratings, guys rated M+ would have nowhere to play UNLESS they were picked up by a Major team and there are severe restrictions on that.

Discussion: Looking for a pitcher or outfielder 65 major plus

Hey Donnie, Stick Clatta out there in the OF! I've seen him patrol out there before. And, heck, he can pitch - he pitches BP all the time! Good luck next week in Dalton and I hope to get to see you guys play and visit with everyone.

Discussion: DALTON GAME TIMES

Even though they say the deadline is July 6 - a week ago - they always allow more time for stragglers?? It would be nice to have game times AS WELL AS bracket times well before we play like SSUSA does. SPA is not good with communications; they put out nothing relative to game times, etc. on their web site or anything that can be printed and kept for reference. I would like to have game times for some of the other divisions so I can see some of my friends on teams from other parts of the country play and have a chance to visit with them.

Discussion: WHO GETS THE BALL??

Since I play the OF, this has happened to me many times. If I am the burned party, I always retrieve the ball. I also do not appreciate those guys who do not. If I am on the field, I feel it is my duty to bring the ball back to the infield.

Discussion: DALTON GAME TIMES

Ron, the deadline for submissions was yesterday. I expect there will be the usual late submissions and then SPA will start putting the brackets together. I suspect we won't have anything until late next week at the earliest.
Who are you playing with in the 60s? I'll be with the Texas Makules 60 Major team.
Good luck and hope to see you in Dalton.

Billy, Texas Makules 60 Major will be there for the 60s. The 65s will not be held until September. I had hoped to get Omen to come but they cannot get enough guys. Will you be playing with Turn 2 in the 60s?

Discussion: Border Battle

Not a good start for Team USA...I enjoyed the question from the commentator when Team Canada had the bases loaded "does he want to go for the base hit or hit a Grand Slam?" Another softball novice, I guess...
