Discussion: players please respond to rule changes

They are trying to dummy down the game. Just like tee ball , they want everyone to be happy. Well, that will never happen, not one Major plus player would want this DBO. I agree that they should do something , but this is not the answer. By the Mulewhipper, the HR rule in Major plus is 9 not 10 as you stated. Not that is a big deal, but it could be now that its an out after 9. Go back to aluminum bats and blue dot balls. THen the HR hitters would hit them and you would not have to worry about guys hitting them when that are not supposed to. At least go back to the limit of 12 per game for Major plus. This way there is a difference in the Major and Major plus division. Right now not much difference at all. So no Major team will ever want to move up with these stinking rules!!!!

Discussion: SSUSA AND SPA MEETINGS

I agree with Jawood on the Major plus rules, but if you just did away with the impact player rule in SPA I could live with the rules the way they are. Why would you ever limit the best players in the top division? I would always go for unlimited HR's runs per inning and no run rule. Just like the old ASA super rules, but I also know the time limit will get in the way. I think there should be no time limit on games for the Plus division. The batters box should be moved forward the length of the plate. When they made the plate a stike they in essence moved the strike zone forward, but did not move the batters box. For some one as tall as I am, this creates more of an issue than for my shorter team mates. If you moved it forward the length of the plate this would resolve this issue. Or as someone stated above do away with the front line. Either one would work.

Discussion: What do you do for arthritis

I have tried just about everything for arthritis. The only thing that has worked for me is Osteo-Bi-Flex. It takes about 2-3 weeks to start feeling the difference. Almost all my aches and pains will leave if I stay on this product. My wife tried to switch to something a little cheaper that looked just like Osteo-Bi-Flex without telling me and after 2 weeks I asked her if something had changed with my supplements because I was having all kinds of aches and pains again, she fessed up and told me that she had tried a different arthritis supplement and did not want to tell me , just let the pain do it. I told her to go back to the good stuff and don't ever switch again. This is just my expierience, but whatever you try give it a good month to make a good evaluation.

Discussion: Game times in Vegas

Nothing like going all the way across the USA for a tourney and have to play at 7:30am and 9:00am on Friday and then not start the tourney until Saturday morning. I know this is a big tourney with a lot of teams but can some one fromthe staff tell us why the bracket does not start when all our RR games end at 11:30am?

Discussion: HAS ANYBODY TRIED THIS?

When I first started senior ball I broke bats like glass. Then I heard about taking 25 1/2 swings, 25 3/4/swings, then 25 full swings and put it away for games. This has worked so well for me that I am swinging last years bat still this season. And it is hot, hot ,hot!!!! Im at about 800 swings on my end load Reebok Melee. Ive never gotten this many swings out of any senior bat.

Any of the western teams coming to St.Louis the first weekend in St.Louis? When we, OKI, were in Reno I talked to the guys from Nortwest Legends and a couple from GSC and you guys said that you thought it was a good idea that you came this way for a tourney. Why not this one? HR rule is 10 and a out.

Discussion: Eastern National Championships 2013 updates

In Dalton this year it was 100 degrees on Friday and they were using a 44/375 and it was just fine. 44/375 are affected by the heat , but so are all balls. I think they should always use a 44/375.

Malo37 our manager is Norm Stafford and his phone number is 513-376-4843. I think its a great idea that we get together and see where everyone is going to play. Maybe with a little coordination we can help ourselves.

Discussion: Major Plus

As a Major Plus player myself, I used to think we needed to combine the Major and Major plus. This would work except for the biggest issue. Most Major teams don't want to play up for whatever reason. Then I thought of what it was like back in young mans softball. There are only 4 Super teams back when I played. If you went to a tourney where they were there was a chance that you would have to play them. Whats changed since then, we did not have to give the lower rated teams runs. We played them straight up. Sure there were a lot of short games then, but every once in a while we would lose to a team that just flat out hit us. Its almost like we have went back to T ball days as seniors, everyone gets to hit, only so many runs per inning, have to give up runs or an extra fielder. This past weekend one of the Major teams that got bumped to Major Plus came in second to us in Dalton. They did not have the power some of the other teams had, but they just went out and played their game. Good Job Brylies Pub from New Jersey. I would like more teams to play, but I want them to want to play up, not forced to. The therory of breaking up teams would not work, because you would have 6 Plus guys asking 6 Major guys if they wanted to play plus, and we already know what that answer is!!! Leave us alone, its fine the way it is!!
