Another Senior softball "WORLD" Tournament in Salem, OR
Our ball club will be attending this World tournament next week and I look forward to playing in a World tournament and maybe I can make the "All World" Team selection if I can hit well. Defense and base running don't figure in typically in making an "All World" tournament team if I remember correctly so that's good!

Info from the tournament web site:

Yes, Gary(19) very astute observation on your part as I was actually playing off a thread of yours from the other day that made a lot of sense to me regarding terms like “Worlds” and “Nationals” etc. as standard qualifiers for just about any old tournament these days. The “real” Worlds and “Nationals” get watered-down in my opinion and I understand that the bevy of associations out there today do have their own World and National tournaments scheduled.

The other hidden msg was how All-Tournament teams are based pretty much on players BA or On base% because it’s actually booked! The other contributing factors to an all-star performance like defense, base running, are just a fleeting memories at the conclusion of most tournaments.

It apperas that most of the 55 major + teams are headed to St. Louis. What happened with Korba Ins & Ruth Realty 55, both of whom were 'definitely going' to Salem?

Re gary 19's comment "last I looked you still need to make 21 plays to win a game". Actually you only need to make 3. The 3 outs in the open inning. Seniors walk off the field after 5 runs. Maybe that's why defense is sometimes overlooked in Senior Softball. Situation- 2 outs 4 runs in. A guy makes an error in Senior softball after a team has scored 4 runs and they could still leave the field after the next batter without even recording an out. The error has cost his team only 1 run. You make that same mistake playing competitive softball and it could cost you 10, 15, 20 runs. The ramifications for defense play were much greater when we used to play. That's probably, at least to a degree, why defense is sometimes overlooked in all tournament nominations. Not saying its not important-just not as important as it used to be.
