Goodtimes, OKI went 4-2. Don't aske me how this happened but Sunday morning in our 2nd game we played a team that was 1 and 3 while we were 4 and 1. Have not figured that bracketing out yet. But we lost to them in the bottom of the 7th inning 39-38. In our first loss Saturday morning we only scored 21 runs. In Fridays pre-liminary games we scored 39 the first game and 52 the second game and ended up the number 2 seed because of runs against.

Jawood, I totally agree with you. We, OKI are only partially sponsored and all of our guys are from a bordering state so this rule change would not hurt us, but help us.

Discussion: future of senior softball

Now that I have seen the senior game for 3 years, we should just leave everything the way it is. Everybody that wants to play Major+ is playing there now. Let everyone else stay down and play where they want to. The senior game should not be any different than the young kids game. There are only 4 Super teams in young kids ball and there are about 8-10 Major plus teams in the 50+ division. Nobody at the plus level wants to play people who don't want to be in the division with them. There is a team that I want to give props to and that is the team from Minnesota that is playing up because they want to play the best teams in the nation. Kivett I think is the name of their team. Those are the kind of teams that I want to play. Not the teams that have been forced up. The plus division is just fine the way it is right now. LEAVE US ALONE!!!!

Discussion: How much difference does an ounce make?

The heavier bat will hit the ball farther if the bat speed is the same.

Discussion: What does it take?

Mike, Dale Mayo here, I think if I get 5-600 swings out of a senior bat, I'm doing good. I average about 12-1400 out of the young kids bats. So I think about 1/2 of that is a good honest number.

Crump, then why do we have age groups at all? So we can play people at the same age and ability level, right? Having 60 year olds play 55's is not right in my opionion. Otherwise lets all play against each other, that way we would have more teams to play against. No, we all don't want that so let them play their own age group.

Discussion: Open or Closed stance..

If you start with a closed stance, then chances are you are not totally opening up your hips. Most senior players have a bad hip rotation as we get older. The open stance lets you open your hips more, thus giving you more power.

Lord we pray for the transplant network to approve this request in Jesus name. I pray that everything involved in this situation would turn out for the good of Jacki. We pray for the family as well, that they would have your peace through all this and that you will get the glory when all is said and done Amen!!!!!

How many of you guys would like to be moved down an age group? How many of you want to play against teams that are up to 10 years younger than most of your team? Probably none of you. This was just their way of getting them out of the tourney. Same problem just in the older age group.

Discussion: Why remove teams from a Division?

Tim, I believe its as good as its gonna get. Like I have stated before, I know there are a few Major teams that could compete at the Plus level but for whatever reason they choose not to. If I was in charge and was given the job to try and fix this I would combine Major and Plus and Play SSUSA Major rules. 7 HR's 2 up and a walk. My reason for doing this is what just happened to us in Dalton, in the Plus division. We ended up playing a Major rated team in SSUSA in the finals. GSC/Howards construction. Now they were smart enough not to match us home runs, so they never hit their 7 unless they were the home team. So all extra HR's were walks. I seen first hand that this could work. Having said all that, after listening and chatting about this issue on this board, I would just leave it the way it is and just make World winners move up. This way they will add 1-2 teams every couple of years and by that time I'll be playing 60's. Bottom line is teams have to want to play at the Plus level. Right now thats the way it is.

Discussion: Why remove teams from a Division?

Tim, I know all the Plus teams want more teams. But we want more teams that can compete at that level. I Am not saying that the system is perfect the way it is. But, right now there are 7-9 really good Plus teams in the nation. I think that if you make teams break up, its not going to help anything because of sponsorship .Most Plus teams have some sponsorship. We went from having everything paid for last year to not knowing if we were going to have anything paid for this year. If there are more teams then that will make people pay more out of pocket and that right there will limit the numbers of players. There are a lot of guys that cannot afford to travel all over the country, which you have to do to be in the Plus division, you have to travel to where the teams are. Whether thats out west or down south. I see "Your" point about why you think you should break up dynasty teams, but I personally don't think that is the answer. I think we would be better off gaining 1-2 teams a year like we have in the last couple o years. 1-2 more is about all that will stay up there.

That is correct stick. We got the Major Plus birth to the TOC and H & O got the Major birth to the TOC.

Once you play at the top you will never go back down. I tried and it did not work. I am not one who wants to dominate, I just want to do and be the best that I can be. Sometimes you have to take your lumps to play with the best. Breaking up the teams in the Plus divisions that have won multiple championships is not the answer. All that will do is water down the top division. None of the top teams want that. If they keep forcing teams up that win championships, eventually there will be 1 or 2 teams that decide that they want to be there and try and beat the best. All the others will continue to break up or dodge the associations that moved them up. I wish there were more plus teams, but not at the cost of watering down the competition. We are expecting 8-9 teams in Las Vegas this year. That will be a great tournament, I for one am looking forward to the competition.
