Are there any 60 or 65 teams planning on going to Glen Burnie, Md. for the USSSA senior worlds in the weekend of Oct 18?
Thanks,

What facts? I was just repeating what R.B. said. It is never a cake walk for anybody. We have to go out and hit to win just like everybody. Some of scores are always inflated because of all of the errors. If we make a lot of errors we usually lose the game.
I was only upset because he only singled us out of 93 teams. I know there were teams there way better than us and none of them got moved to play younger teams.
At least now we will not have to worry about being moved around because we will be playing major plus teams in Dalton in the 65's and Vegas for 60 and 65's to finish out the year. It should be fun win or lose.

Thanks for the kind words. You guys have a solid team also. I would loved to have Clyde if he wanted to get back in the game.
Several of our guys were talking to Clyde and I heard the stories about old times.
See you in Vegas,

You are right. I use the bordering states just like every other team does. All teams can use bordering states if they choose. Those are the rules and most teams use them.
Is it my fault I want to put together a good team and try to win when we go to a tournament? I thought this is why you compete.
You guys must never go to Vegas or Dalton because most teams are stacked there. They use the same rules as we do and we go and try to win just like all the other tourneys. If we get beat by a better team we take it and try to improve for the next time.
See you in Dalton

There was only 1 division that had 9 teams and gues what? it was a 50 aa I think. There were only 6 major team in the whole tourney and they were 3 50's , 2 55's and 1 60. Local teans did not support this so they my move to a new location next year.

I have no problem playing the younger guys and long as it is the same for all of the twams unlike Manassas. Just treat us like all the other age groups. If you move one team move everyone.
At least we did go to Burlington and play unlike some other teams that would not.
Harry, How about your team drop down and play the 55 major or 55 aaa teams in 2 or 3 tournaments and see how you like it. Then let me know how it feels to play the younger teams.
You don't penalize teams for winning. Everyone else need to try and get better and compete.
I walked around city park several times just looking at teams to see if there may be someone that was old enough that I might could find for next year. I am always looking to try and get better because if you do not pick up players each year you will get left behind by the other teams. All of the top teams are always recruiting and trying to improve every year. This is why the top divisions are so strong.

Just got back from Burlington and it was a good tourney. We (Turn Two) played Triangle Masters and DHC/ Kinnco. It was tuff in the practice games going 0-2. We got lucky and beat DHC 40-33 in a knock down drag out match. These guys are a very strong team. Then we got by Triangle. DHC then beat Triangle to get back to us. We beat DHC in the finals to win the 55 major championship. DHC only had 11 guys and they had one to go down but they still had plenty of fight in them.
It was tuff because they finished it in 1 day. It was hot and ruff on all teams. It was nice seeing Butch Drake, Big Arm John, Reedus, Crump22 and all others. Both of these teams are strong and very scrappy. I hope we don't have to play these young guys anymore.
Hope everyone gets back safe.

If the runner is in the way just throw the ball. You will only have to hit someone once before they will get out of the way.
In baseball you will get naied if you don't get out of the way.
Just get the ball and throw and I think most senior will get out of the way.

They are using the tattoo 44/375 ball and senior bats. Why don't people want to go? This is driving distance and why would teams not attend something that you could drive?

Webbie,
I also can't wait to play you guys and the other major plus teams in Vegas. It is always a tough game against you guys and GSF and the other teams make us play that much harder.
See you in Vegas

Are the other big teams that win going to be broke up also or are you just going to discriminate against my team? When has it been a crime to try and win ballgames?

You guys may want to ask R.B. this weekend about what he told us. I am just relaying what R.B. told my dad and that is why he moved us to the 55 in bracket play. When you get to Manassas this weekend just ask him where did he get his information from.
Thanks,
Donnie

I have no problem playing the younger guys. My question is out of the 92 teams why is my team the only one being picked on? No other team has been forced to move down.
Why aren't the 55 majors plus teams being punished also. My dad told R.B. that we would gladly play the 55's in bracket play if the other 60 major teams were playing also. He said we were the only 60 team moving down to the 55's.
Birdie What does having a good team have to do with playing younger teams. There are other good teams in this tourney and they are not playing younger teams.

That makes too much sense. I don't know how many times we had to play a 2 out of 3 or a three team de.

Guys,
Just wanted to let you guys know that R.B. tried to force our 60 team into playing in the 55 division even though we have 9 guys that are 65. The 3 other 60 teams get to play each other. He is just trying to force us to move up.
We were told that Pace, High Street and N. Va. Force was tired of us beating up on them. So rather than that we told him to refund our money if we could not play in our on age group.
Now since we will not be there maybe someone else can win. I hope you 3 teams are happy about not wanting to play us. Is this what softball has come to? I thought most teams wanted to get better hut if you get to choose who you can play it is easier to win a tournament.
Enjoy your win in the 60 major bracket.
If anyone needs any guys that are not afraid to play some competition give some of our guys a call. They are free this weekend.
Later,
Donnie,

Larry,
We did not hit that great plus they robbed us of a few hits. 10 years or even 5 years is tooooo much to give up. I would rather play my own age and what ever rules they decide.
In the 65's we only got three games. The 70 major plus team that agreed to play us decided no after they and us committed to tourney. Therefore we didn't get to play 2 out of 3. If we would have known they did not want to play we could have saved a boatload of money for all of those rooms.
I still don't know why they said they would play and then when they got there decided not too. Our guys and myself were really ticked off.
Later,
Donnie

Omega beat us (turn two) 22-17 and then 22-21 in the if game.
Omega just had too much speed for us. The left center fielder ran down everything in the out field plus we could not get him out.
Congratulations to Omega for winning.
