Important for emphasis...
Let's make it perfectly clear.
Senior 1.21 bats and minimum 44x375 balls are and have been the norm
all year in senior ball
and led to a record for participation
for SSUSA in Phoenix this year.
That is game, set and match
for what seniors like and want to play.
Let me say it again
because it feels so good.
Game, set and match.
If SSUSA hadn't guaranteed over a year ago that these standards would govern
play there might have been half
the teams attending.
Anyone who doesn't get this
doesn't get us, the ball playing community for whatever reasons
or agendas they might have
meaning they don't want to get it
because of their own SH-stuff
gets in the way.
Folks that don't know us,
love us or play our game
are wittingly and unwittingly
involved in a movement
to dumb down the game we love
into something we won't.
It's that freakin' simple.

I couldn't pay enough money,
Robert, to get better publicity
than by being shown
compared to you and some others.
Thanks, again and keep up the good work.

you are right about it not being a contest, b/c you wouldn't show being the coward you are.you would rather sit and type innuendos about people,that you know nothing about.

You can contact me off line
any time you want.
But you knew that.
I'd love to know how it feels
to be a loser, a liar and a jerk
and I thought you could explain
it to me.

Hey, come on guys, this is supposed to be a site for senior softball not for bashing one another, I believe most of us who look at this site would agree, ya'll should sit back and be an observer and just see what ya'll sound like, maybe take your personal differences to something like facebook or the equivilant.

einstein assures us that because SSUSA guaranteed the 1.21 bats and 44x375 balls this year, they had a record attendance in Phoenix. In fact, he states that without that guarantee, they would only have half the teams. Letís see if that is true.

Phoenix TOC in 2007 326 teams
Phoenix TOC in 2008 318 teams
Phoenix TOC in 2009 315 teams
Phoenix TOC in 2010 329 teams

2007 had NO GUARANTEES of lively bat/ball combo. It had 326 teams. This year had einsteinís praised guarantee. Result? Less than a 1% increase!! Not 100% as einstein claims.

After 2007 came two years of a bad economy, but Phoenix still had more that 314 teams. Even if we compare this yearís attendance WITH THE GUARANTEE, to last yearís, we see a puny 4% increase!

In other words, once again, facts donít lie. einsteinís theory is baloney. Only three more teams came this year than the previous high. What a turnout in support of lively balls and bats! einsteinís claim of endorsement of lively bats and balls by this yearís ďhugeĒ turnout is spurious, invalid, wrong. ĎNuf said?

We've been using minimum,
44x375 balls in all SSUSA events
for a while now and before that
it was 47 or 44 x 525 balls.
Before all the "movement" to dumb down our game, TD's didn't have to guarantee
the balls because the high caliber
of balls WAS A GIVEN.
What an amalgam of intellectual fluff
and as usual completely off the mark.
When seniors know the bat/ball combo is going to be good enough to have fun
they invest.
That's what SSUSA, SPA, NCSSA and LVSSA
have learned and all demonstrate.
Game, set and match.
Let me say it again because it feels
so good.
Game, set and match.
Look up at the lead post on this thread.
It is indisputable and true.
Check with SSUSA or NCSSA or LVSSA
or SPA if you have any doubt.
