Discussion: Thanks For Your Prayers and Thoughtfulness

A little over 3 years ago, my granddaughter was attacked by a pitbull. She was 9. She has suffered from kidney disease her entire life. There was a great outpouring from the softball community, especially here in the South where we live, with calls, cards, gifts, and especially prayer.

I was continually approached at tourneys with inquiries about her condition and need for a kidney transplant as well. She has had 2 cosmetic surgeries on her face to correct the damage from the attack and all is well.

And the best news of all is that this past Tuesday, our granddaughter received a kidney transplant!! Almost immediately, her new kidney began functioning at 100% and she is doing exceedingly well. Already out of ICU and will be home in just a few days. Our Lord has been very gracious to her and our family. A portion of that came through all of you; thank you from the bottom of my heart. Steve

Discussion: An Early Reminder

Actually, a very early reminder about my pre-season, one-day, warm-up tourney in Birmingham, Alabama. It will be on Saturday, March 4, 2017. I have already received inquiries about it and have 3 registered teams. I can take 20 teams.

I have 5 fields and want to have 4 teams per field with a 3 game guarantee. We will start at 9 a.m. and end about 5:30 in order for everyone to return home at a decent hour.

Entry fee is $165 and includes umpires. Each team will supply their own authorized senior softballs.

You can register here with contact info or call Steve at 205-647-2881.

God bless you and I pray that everyone in Senior Softball has a wonderfully happy and blessed Holiday and Holy Day season!!

Discussion: A Crazy Rumination!!

I have heard that several new bats are coming out soon with more "sticky" on them. So, I was wondering: What if I barely swing and when contact is made, the ball actually sticks to the barrel of the bat! Do I throw the bat into fair territory and run to first? Will I be safe?!!!

Retired with a lot of time on my hands!

Discussion: Calling all pitchers.

I do not know if I qualify as a Pitcher or just a "Thrower", but I have thrown baseballs and softballs for 55 years. Played Softball primarily since I was 25.
As early in the year as weather permits, I start pitching batting practice as much and as often as possible. I also use a bucket when it is just me. I always go to a field, properly marked, and place the bucket behind the plate.
I also try to remember a simple trick that my high school coach taught me. If your pitches are naturally moving left--move to the left of the rubber and vice-versa.
Pitching from the front of the rubber, side to side, or 2-3 ft behind demands repetition more than anything.
How one holds the softball and delivers depends on the various kinds of pitches desired and more than anything--what one is most comfortable with day in and out.

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: 1-1-----0-0 count

As a pitcher, I like this idea as well. After all, we are throwing underhanded and slow! Hitters have a very real beginning advantage. Also, it seems to me that once a batter has a strike, it forces him to be a bit more aggressive at the plate, thus, not standing and taking so many pitches. I think this also prompts the pitcher into being more productive in his approach as to how he continues to work the batter.

Discussion: Player Needed?

The team I am on (DEEP South 65's) has had to stand down temporarily. We will resume in October. As a result, just wondering if any 60's team may need a fill-in due to injuries, etc.
I have SSUSA and SPA cards; live in Alabama. Pretty good pitcher; average hitter; team player.
Tourneys most interested in : Marietta, Cullman, Birmingham, and Dalton.
