Dave

GSL, USSSA, ASA and even law Enforcement give you the schedule the Thursday before the tournament.

So an excellent job by you and your staff to get it out a week in advance.

JOB WELL DONE.

Carry on.

I'm curious. Do people actually need a week or so notice to figure out if they are going to drive 3 hours on a Thursday night or Friday morning?

And the moral of this story is: if you want to complain and question management you should probably call the office and discuss it, rather than EAT CROW on a message board..................

Discussion: WOULD YOU QUIT PLAYING?

If I win the lottery I will start an Association for all of you who want softer balls, less of a bat, a screen, no games with the sun in your eyes, no loud fans screaming, no forced re-ratings, and participation trophies.

I will even name the Association. We will call it:

I'm afraid to get hurt/compete at a higher level and I want a prize for participating softball association.

Find another hobby if you don't like the way SSUSA runs things.

Discussion: Ratings

Isn't the Goal to COMPETE at the highest level possible?

So now if you win games by one run it means you are not a M+ team?

Not every team is going to be the best Major plus team but as long as you are competitive you are Major Plus.

Strive to be the best should be the new SSUSA Motto.

Discussion: Safety of the Game

Damn Vinny now people will think we aren't best friends. Haha. You know me not complaining but basically proving a point through colorful commentary.

Guess I just never could understand why guys think things are so unsafe and still play the sport.

Won't be in St. George still recovering from Achilles surgery. Good luck to you and the Tucson boys.............

Discussion: Today's "super" bats

A 52/300 core ball is way too bouncy and infielders would get more injured. If you play 400 plus games a year in different associations you would see that a 40/375 or 44/375 ball is fine. Nobody wants to hit a wet sock type ball and besides in seniors you can play deeper in the infield because most guys don't run as well.

Discussion: Safety of the Game

Why do people come on this board and continually complain about safety and blame SSUSA.

We all have choices, so if you think it's not safe then don't play. There is danger in every kind of hobby, sport or recreational activity. If you are afraid of injury you should probably take up another hobby like tennis. Oh wait my buddy just rolled his ankle playing tennis and needs a surgery. Maybe bowling. Oh wait I watched a guy drop the ball on his foot and get injured.

For you guys complaining about safety maybe take up lawn bowling, curling, or ping pong. Quit blaming SSUSA for not caring. Everyone cares and people COMPETE at their own risk.

Do you think our military, police and fire personnel say to themselves everyday no one cares about their safety and then quit their jobs? Nope they make the best of each situation being as safe as they can be by personal choice.

Softball is not going change much. Bats aren't going to change balls aren't going to change either. If you want change then put up the $$$$$ and get your own association. But to come on here and talk crap that SSUSA doesn't care about safety is asinine.

Nobody wants anyone to get hurt but the majority don't want the game changed. Make your choice to play or not play and if you are so afraid find a safer hobby, or move to Europe where everyone is afraid.....

Dave very good. You just gave the politically correct view.

Here is the real unedited truth why guys or teams don't move up to Major +.

(P) ussification of America................

It will soon over take America and we will be like Europe..................

But fear not it's not just in Senior softball it's starting in everything. The everyone deserves a trophy philosophy has created mediocrity being acceptable.

Being told Easton is back making senior bats? If so do you have any feedback or will you be hitting that bat to compare it with the others?

Thanks

The screamer 5

On my team we use a PITCHER so I'm kinda confused on how you would have bat control not to hit the PICTURE.

Sorry couldn't resist.

I think one of our guys does have a picture of a vegas stripper on his bat though.....

I'm with all of you. Few hitters swing at the first pitch when it's 0-0 anyways.

Gotta love this message board. Two days ago I was a dick and today you are asking me to come play on your team. HAHAHA.

The Alpha Dawgs have already solicited my services, but I just had surgery and I am out until April. Tell Carlos when I am healthy I will for sure come play a tourney with you guys.

Be safe.

If you are talking about Carlos from Remax, then yes I did. Carlos is a great guy and I am very appreciative for the sponsorship and opportunities he provided.

Still proudly wear my Remax jerseys at league. hahaha
