Discussion: SSUSA Player Hannington/ Bay State Bombers 55 Bill Curry Dies in Ireland

Webbie, thanks so much for the kind words. He was the big leftie like yourself and he was a great competitor and my best friend. He will be sorely missed every time we go to a tournament from now on. He will never be forgotten, though. He was such a great guy you would have loved to get to know him plus a great teammate. God bless you and Patti!

Discussion: SSUSA Player Hannington/ Bay State Bombers 55 Bill Curry Dies in Ireland

Bill Curry was my best friend in the world. He was over in Ireland with SSUSA these past two weeks doing something he absolutely loved to do "Play Softball". He traveled over there with his girlfriend Jen to get away and have some fun. I just heard this morning that he died of what they believe was a heart attack after dinner 6/25/13. I am so sorry Jen you being there alone without the BIG GUY. I am so saddened by the news I felt compelled to post this here. Bill was my best friend in softball and like my brother and he will be sorely missed. He played for the Hannington/Bay State Bombers 55 from MA. He was actually the CO-MVP in 2011 when the Bombers won the Triple Grand Slam in Phoenix when he hit a modest .912 for the tourney. I guess that would have been the highlight of his Senior Softball career at 57. He was loved by all his teammates and family and I just wanted to give a shout out to him on this board because he deserves the best from the game he loved to play. We miss you already Bill, just remember keep your head on the ball when you try to jack. Love you buddy!!!

SO, Titan what you are saying is he can't play this year at all then. He is released by his team and I can't pick him up so he can't play at all this year? There are no other teams in our area to play for except 55 AAA.

I would like to know from SSUSA standpoint the ruling on this situation. I have a couple of players who have called me and their team got bumped from 50 MAJ to MAJ+ and they are being let go because they are expendable at the 50 MAJ+ level. They would like to play for us and we just got moved down to AAA for our performance in the 55 MAJ Worlds. They are also turning 55 and would like to play at the 55 age group. The other team is a 50 MAJ+ team now. They haven't played a game with them as MAJ+ and I would like to add him or them to my team as 55 AAA players. Can I get a ruling here on this?

Discussion: Replacement Surgery

My PT person says that shoulder replacement is not ready for prime time. They have issues with range of motion and it supposedly is limited so be careful. I asked about this and was told no by my surgeon. JMO....

Discussion: Bases @ 70'

ShaneV so sorry NY Motion isn't going to Vegas. They were in last week but must have dropped out. The first time I saw the list they were on it. Really surprised they aren't going and more surprised none of the AAA teams are going either. So what does that mean for you guys, you automatically win the US Nationals right? Would have been more fun playing I know. Well, good luck there and hope you do well.

Discussion: Meniscus Surgery Recovery Time?

I have had two also and safe to say 4-6 weeks depending on how motivated you are and your PT of course. I had to take out the lateral completely and it was about 6 weeks. It all depends on you and your PT afterwards.

Discussion: Player Ratings

Fred in your league what is the sense of keeping score if it is a rec league and anyone who has played competitive all his life why would he want to play in your league? I can understand why you don't post anymore the competitive bones are gone. Just like when kids play all the kids should play equal time and the heck with the more talented kids just hold them back and play rec league. JMO Can't fault a guy who wants to win and put the best possible team on the field all the time. It is the competitive way.

Discussion: 5 game guarantee

SSUSA staff as it turns out the two teams who won their first games Saturday were the only teams that could be sent home Saturday. It would have been better for us to lose to Sweets our first game then we would have been guaranteed to be around on Sunday. This is what JRHUNCH is getting to. We (Hannington/Bay State) got penalized for winning our first game and so did Pace. Along with that we played three games on Saturday and the teams that made it to Sunday only played two? How does that happen...

Discussion: EASTERN NATIONAL'S 2012 Game Scores and Bracket Results

Must have been nice not having to play your two seeding games in the 90+ degree weather while everyone else had to play those games and then run the table to take the trophy? They played 0 games Friday, 2 games Saturday and 4 games Sunday to win from the loser's bracket. Have they even lost a game in all the tournaments they have played in?

Discussion: Scores for Western Regionals

Somewhere along the way we forgot how to hit. We have been averaging 10-12 runs a game and you can't win with that. We played a 50 Major team in PA and won 32-30 and 31-10 so we haven't forgot just don't seem to be as consistent this year. We will be out in Vegas and maybe we can find our bats again. Again congrats on your win and I believe you've got NY Motion for the East/West game this year in the AAA. Good Luck and hope to see you there?

Nice work James sorry we won't be there for your return performance in the East/West game in Vegas. Turns out Majors is a little more competitive than we thought. We will be in Vegas but paying our dues I guess. We haven't seemed to have adjusted yet to the Majors. But when we do watch out. LOL Good job this past weekend wish we were going to play you guys again. See you in Vegas....

Discussion: 5 run spot that allows 6 runs per inning to lower rated teams

Gary, that is the whole idea of the runs is that the lower ranked team is not as good and to give the upper teams more teams to play then you have to EQUALIZE them as best you can. If not the lower ranked teams don't go to tournaments unless they have teams in their own skill level to play. I don't like the runs either but sometimes it is warranted.

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

Last 3 years in the Eastern Nationals it was 95 degrees with last year getting rain Sat morning and 98% humidity so welcome to our world. The only thing we didn't have was the altitude.
