Reno on the horizon
Wow.
A week before Reno and the world hasn't ended yet.
I sure hope it doesn't till after labor day.
I hate when that happens.

50 Major has 9 very good looking teams and will be competitive
and should be lots of fun.
Dave or anyone?
What balls are we using?
Joe Lecak, my good friend told me that Lynn Swann
and Jack Lambert will be in uniform for the Southwest Legends.
What a gas?
I played once against Brian Shaw in Oakland
and called time while pitching to walk over and shake his hand.
Had to.

Looking forward to the tournament in Reno as always.
It's the first chance for most to gauge ourselves
against national competition.

Can't wait.

Joe you know I was kidding 58 and 88 are my softball uniform numbers after my two heros growing up in Pittsburgh. Everyone asks me why I chose those numbers for softball, two pretty good role models when I was growing up. See you in Reno.

Those were great role models of competition
and athletic excellence, Joe.
You share them with a lot of us from the East.
There was a rumor around NorCal that Willie McGee
was going to be playing this year.
Still exciting stuff.
Can't wait.
See you on Saturday.

Hey guys, Play well in Reno!!! The only Steeler jersey that I ever wore was number 58. I do miss the people of Pittsburgh they are special. There is nothing like a bar in Pittsburgh at any time of the day. It is not as crowded as it use to be in the bars at 700am when the mills let out however. Thanks Harry (Joe still exercising it is getting better.)

The question is what's the over and under number for senior bats breaking during the first round of bracket games Sunday morning?

Temps in the fourties and low fifties!!!!!! CRACK!!!!!!!

Better bring your "kids" bats.

The 6-10 day forecast for next Tuesday thru Thursday (when the 65s play) is high in the 70s and lows in the low 50s. I remember playing early morning games a few years ago and I wore a flannel-lined jacket until the weather warmed up later in the day. Good luck to all and stay safe!

Hey Larry, Tim, Birdie and Ken.
Thanks, Timmy.
I got a USSSA bat I'll be using, a Super Freak
that should take the beating.

Hotels.com stood by a reservation I made
3 weeks ago that got messed up and upgraded me
to a better hotel for the same price
and a 100 dollar discount coupon on my next booking with them.
Not a bad way to start the weekend.
Dave said 44x375 trump balls.
Fun and a challenge to keep the ball
in the park in 50 major with only 5 HRs.
Can't wait.

Having grown up in Carson City I can tell you wind is the norm.
Joe you had me going with the Lynn Swann, Jack Lambert BS. I was thinking Lesak really loaded up this time, and how old are those guys?
Really looking forward to Reno.
Should be a blast.

Wishing the best showing for the NW teams in 50M this weekend. Finally some temperatures we're used to!!! Going from 60's to 80's for us always takes some adjustment and dehydration can really take a toll. Weather this time is just what we're used to. Strange weather year. We've only seen 5-6 days 65 or above this year in our area!!!
