Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: 4 base error andrequired runner advancement

I guess I should have said he throws his glove and hits the ball keeping it from going over the fence or the player throws his glove that is on the ground and hits the ball what do you have. I was told that you have a 3 base mockery of the game and the player was warned that the next time it was and ejection.

What would happen if the ball does not go over the fence what I have heard is it is a 3 base award from when the ball was touched and from where the runner was at the time of contact is this correct.

Discussion: TEAM PENALIZED FOR GODD DEFENSE AND PITCHING

B.K. We can see that you were also done wrong and I agree with you that you should have been able to play as you won the right to play and you could have won or lost but at least you had the chance to play for a title.

Discussion: TEAM PENALIZED FOR GODD DEFENSE AND PITCHING

taits just a quick question defense helps you stay in the game but offense wins and if your team has no consistant home run power how do you combat the home run that is hit with players on and a team is not going to get all there runs each inning in most cases. I know you say pick up these players but when you play with guys that you enjoy playing with why should you be forced to do this and put in another class. I think that there is no reason to move this team at the current time and like stated before they should be able to compete AAA and just see how they do in the Nationals before rating and she how they stack up against the teams up North and West and the East as there are teams doing the same as this team.

Discussion: TEAM PENALIZED FOR GODD DEFENSE AND PITCHING

I would like to ask a question if a team has only hit 5 hrs in that many games what would make you think that this team could come close to hitting 6 in a game and this team has played almost the same teams at all the tournaments. This team has over 80 per cent of its players that have never played anything other than AAA ball and one player that played 1 tournament last year for a Major team that had lost there pitcher before going to Vegas so why playing one tournament makes him Major I dont understand and they didnt win anything. So what about the teams up north and out west that are finishing 1st or 2nd in all the tournaments that they are playing, why are they not moved up and made to compete at the next level or are they going to give them a chance to compete in the Nationals and see how they do. If so why not give this team the same oppertunity to do the same. I would like to see a team overcome the 6hrs per game with just base hitting or even if the team hits 3 a game there is now way a team can score that many runs to over come especially if for some reason that they didnt score 5runs per inning or will it be seven. So dont just single out this team without checking the stats for these other teams in other areas before judging this team.

Discussion: Who Will Be Participating in the Southern Championships in Birmingham?

The NSA nationals in July had 7-70s teams I believe but did not have 50s as they had played the week before in Dalton. Had a great tournament hope that more will come next year.

Since the major and major plus SPA is the weekend before should have only AAA and AA teams to play and since this is there nationals it should be level playing field. Have good fields and usually a very good place to play.

Discussion: Why are teams not rated the same in USSA SPA ISSA

Perl glad to read your answer and like most it seems it would be so simple to correct this but as has been stated so many times we love to compete and whenever we can we play. But one day we will wake up and support the ones that are correctly rating the teams and everyone will have a chance to win and move up when they can. Like you stated above ISSA is the worest but when there is nothing else going we play as we are all a bunch of softball junkies.

Discussion: Why are teams not rated the same in USSA SPA ISSA

I thought that all of these were part of the group that set the rules for the game. If they can not get teams rated the same then how can they expect the teams to understand there reasoning behind there rules and want to play by the rules. That being said I was talking about what rating they should be in when they go to tournaments. This would greatly level the playing field when you know who should be there and in your bracket. I know that teams bitch and moan about what division they are in but if you have players that have played major plus all there time they should be mp same goes for the rest of the divisions. And if you win major tournaments then you should be glad to move up and at least try. After that year you can get rerated if you have played and at least tried to compete which we have done a few times. I know most players and sponsors will say we are wasting our money but they should be proud that they were good enough to win and love the chance to compete against good competition.

Discussion: Looking for a Good Shortstop and a Third Baseman

Do you really believe that a 63 year old can compete day in and day out with a 56 year old player he may be able to hit but playing all day there is no way he has the stamina that a 56 year old has this also would apply to the 64-70 the other age group could possibly work.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Time to eliminate senior bats

Most of the guys you are talking about do alot of lifting and hitting to make sure they stay on top of their game. So as I stated above let these gentlemen start there own league more or less like they used to have and that way they can make there own rules and not have be limited as I believe Sparky had suggested when you have the bucks and want to spend them that is up to you.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Time to eliminate senior bats

I remember when I first played slow pitch I had moved from Ill and had played fastpitch and we used wooden bats so when I started slow pitch all I had was a wooden bat but soon realized that metal was so much better to hit with. I have hit alot more homeruns with the dave carrol and bombats than I have with the new bats but I have not been asked to do so in several years. I still like the older bats with a 47/52 ball. We also played on 270 foot fences when we got to play at major complexes other wise it was baseball fields. I dont remember ever breaking one of these bats it just got old and lost its pop. But could still use in batting pratice and didnt have to worry about breaking the bat in. So when they talk about breaking bats 2-4 times a year would it not be wise to go backwads a little and I now what most are going to say the bat makers would never let this happen as they make to much money with all the home run hitters breaking bats. I just wanted to write because this is all that you read about. The major plus let them do what they want like we did before there was all of these rules and regulations let them get who they want if they have the money like they did in the 60s-80s. Then all players will be happy as they will not bother our game.

Discussion: SSUSA AND SPA MEETINGS

I do not think that most 65s would like to play a 58 year old team. They may be able to hit with them but the difference is in the defense with the speed and movement of the players. If the players are rated correctly and the tourneys are checked correctly you would probably have more teams. I know most teams don't have a person paying there way so they have to pick and choose closer to home and play a couple or so larger tourneys so that is why there are a lot of small tourneys with not very many teams and the combining of some of the tournaments and why you play each other so many times during the year. Most of us play for the exercise and the competion as we all want to stay healthy and live as long as we can.

Discussion: TOC 60AAA

Indiana Legends have a great team and great gentlemen. We could not come close to matching them with the home run power that they have as we found out when we moved from the field that the wind was blowing in on. They are a great champion and should not have a problem matching up with any major team with homers and play great defense.
