Discussion: Major plus problem

Mahalo for your comments on resourses...I agree. It will be difficult for any Hawaii team to reach the Major+ level because of it! We can field players from every Island with possible skill sets, yet to play together thru-out the year would be impossible. Thus, I look forward playiing with all my Braddahs I grew up with against the Young Guns n our yearly Vegas trip. Talent is a gift n can be improved with desire n hard work n to be able to recruit talent, play as a team that creates a very special team that can win at the highest level. However, I play with guys that I already have many eternal memories with n looking forward to creating many more. Have fun, play hard n enjoy the moments we have playing this great sport! Aloha, Fabe

Discussion: Major plus problem

Here on Oahu we have a challenge playing against Seniors! Not enough teams...each Island is seperated by water n of course 2,500 miles of water seperate us from Cali. Solution play against younger teams. Yet it still softball, I am bless just to still be playing this great game! SSUSA does the best job of most organizations...lets enjoy this moment, might not have too many left! Aloha, Fabe

Discussion: Major plus problem

Man can we complicate things...like a great game that should entertain us n keep us healthy! We have the great Pacific Ocean that keeps us away from many tourneys, but such is life! I would not want it any other way....no simple answers to the Major+ division, but if U can why not play against the best? Yet ring chasing has become a priority...Oh well if I don't play well or my team loses early to these Young Guns, there is always great surf! Be safe n healthy my Bruddahs. Aloha, Fabe

Discussion: Second Home plate for National Tourneys

Brought this topic up because over the years some interesting calls have been made that affected the game....such as, the foot was over the line but not yet in contact with the ground. Mahalo for the opinions given, however; we have been playing with bases n plates all our lives! Just thought a plate would assist with making these close force outs at home. Aloha, Fabe

Discussion: Second Home plate for National Tourneys

I am directing this towards the SSUSA staff...was wondering if using a second home plate in the bigger events was ever considered? Had some really weird calls due to the line n I don't want to just blame the umpire...but I believe that this second plate would minimize some of those close confusing calls. Aloha, Fabe

Discussion: Shoulder brace?

Helps with arm swing during base running, keeps area warm, provides stability, but does nothing for pain or healing! Should have a Dr. check it out for you. Aloha, Fabe

Discussion: Qusetion

The rule is you can have up to 3 players with higher classifications playing with your team...that means 3 majors for a AAA team or 3 major+ for a major team. Shouldn't be able to skip two brackets without an exception. Aloha, Fabe

My suggestion would be to contact Alan....move on there are many good Senior bats on the market! I broke two bats five years ago n have moved on wanting or waiting for a replacement. Aloha, Fabe

Discussion: Senior HyperZ softball bat

Swung a new one last week...team mate had one...felt ok. Didnt compare with my Ambush gamer! But the Z was brand new....felt a little too flexy in the handle for me, but seemed as good as most new senior bats. Aloha, Fabe

Discussion: Courtesy Runner on Base n is Up to Bat

Mahalo for the rule clarification…I does change strategy of the game if the player on base is not penalized with missing a turn to bat if his choice caused the third out! Fabe
