Has anybody seen CERCE?
Last year in January a pitcher came on here claiming to be nearly unhittable from Long Island. Did he pick up with anybody? How did that work out? Bobby Davis-did you get any tips from him?

(doggone it, I can't keep my tongue out of my cheek sometimes)

I could be mistaken on this but perhaps it was you couldn't hit HIM--meaning any ball up the middle he would catch before it hitting any part of his body?

I think you have this a little bit wrong, Rich ... He signed with the New York Mets, not the Red Sox, about 29 years ago ... CERCE is just his user name here ... His real name is Sidd Finch! ... (Note to 40-Masters youngsters: Google that name and read the Sports Illustrated article)

Tournment Pitcher from NY looking to join a team
I just turned 60 in October. I've been playing ASA softball actively for the past 35+ years, never stopped playing softball with 20, 30 & 40 year old league division one or "A" ball players. Winner of multiple championships throughout the 90's and 2000's.

I'm well known throughout Long island as a premier high arc softball pitcher and an accomplished power hitter. My delivery is very different than most softball pitchers. I learned years ago to deliver the ball with a spin from my right thigh making turning my wrist making it very hard to pick up the ball after release. When I move my index finger to the side of the ball, it comes down on an angle jamming the batters and many times striking them out.

I recently joined a local LISSA team age 60 and older. When I told my 32 year old son and a great softball team mate/player that I joined the senior leagues his comment to me was "Dad, 20'25 year old's can't hit you, what will those geriatrics do facing you" Funny for him but I've been around this game a long time. I Never underestimate anyone, regardless of age. I replied to my son by saying more than likely, senior players have never stopped playing the game, just like me. I would expect more talent from them than you kiddies!

With that said if you can field talented players, combining me on the mound the combination will win tournaments.

You should also know that we, this senior 60's league began practicing indoors a week ago. I pitched twelve innings of one run softball.
