Discussion: WHY IS IT HARD TO GET A RESPONSE

I emailed the SSUSA office and got a response within 15 minutes. Also received a second follow up email to my second question.

So I would say they respond in more than a timely manner.

I'm on board with all of that and.....

Always play straight up because it's about competing more than winning.

Be safe.

Still waiting to hear how it feels to win games when you get 5 runs.

Maybe you can help me out.

Does it feel like some of these?

The feeling you get when you get free Government cheese?

Or maybe how you feel when you cash your Welfare Check?

Or maybe when you get a free Obama cell phone?

Or maybe even how you feel when your doctor checks your prostate?

Just asking. Help a brother out..........

I do not believe 5 runs given is a hard fast rule.

I believe SSUSA lets you choose one of 3 options:

1. 5 runs
2. 11th defensive player
3. OR play straight up like real men

Any team I have ever played on regardless of age difference we chose option #3.

And yes that means playing against 40 year-olds when our average age was 57 years old.

I'm wondering can you tell me what it feels like to win a game when you are given runs?
I'm just not sure because I have never experienced that............

Discussion: California State Championships

Congrats to my Team Shadow teammates for winning the 40 Major California State Championship this past weekend in Palm Springs. Our average age was 57 years old. Kudos to Greg Bovero and Jimmy Ferguson along with the leader HOF'er Ron Parnell for recruiting a group of guys with a lot of heart and a competitive fire to win.

Great job fellas.

I hear ya Murray. The turf infields are a plus but I get the short dimensions. BLD has made a lot of players league night heroes.

Good luck.

Discussion: PLEASE CHANGE THIS RULE!!

If the umpire was worth a crap he wouldn't need any lines to effectively do his job especially when the back line doesn't even matter.

Instead of changing the rule just get rid of the umpire. Ejecting a player for that is just plain Chicken Shit...................

Give a warning and move on.................

Mulldog

I believe the Mike Dill bat is suppose to be the best bat made when the other team has 11 defensive players in the field.

I'm just sayin.

Discussion: Dudley Bat problems

lb16

The EASTON Empire and the Senior Helmer are as good or better than any senior bat currently being produced. I have heard some Empire's didn't last that long, but mine has 500 swings on it and it is just as good today as it was when I took the wrapper off last January.

You run the risk with every senior bat of getting one that sometimes doesn't last.

If you are interested in playing and do not have a team do you place players on teams or is it our responsibility to find a team?

Thanks

Discussion: 2018 1and 2 piece Hyper Z endload

Lefty

I have hit every Hyper Z ever made compliments of Ron Parnell. The Hyper Z is as good of a senior bat as any other senior bat. All are somewhat stiff and you need to put about 500 swings on each one before it will be game ready and as hot as any other bat.

Most people just don't want to put in the work.

COMMON SENSE. Damn what a novel concept.

If we could just make a pill form of common sense and sell it to Millennials, life would be good.

My apologies. Yes the Bullhead city Umpires are the ones I am referring too.

Looking forward to your event.

KP&R

If you are as thrilled as you say you are then get rid of most of your umpires that are close to 80 years old and can't see fair or foul home runs that go 300 plus feet.

Umpiring for your Feb tourney has always been a joke........

Congrats to Sommerville Softball for winning the 55 Major Plus division and to Northwest Legends for taking them to the "if" game and an extra inning.

I know a lot of time and work is put in by the Sommerville guys. Congrats.
