Discussion: How best to position11 defensive players?

I think your 11th player should be sitting next to the coach on the bench with his batting gloves on waiting to hit.................

Softball was meant to be played with 10 defensive players...

Guess I am just a little more old school than you. If you are going to complain, degrade or even talk crap to someone on a message board why not have the stones to say the person's name and sign your name. I guess some people reading this post know what's going on, but others don't. If you can't own it and are afraid of retaliation you probably shouldn't post it. Things are just more credible when a person signs his name and points out the wrongdoers.

DBax did it and he got screwed, but he signed his name and pointed out the person who wronged him..

Sorry I just refuse to live in fear of anything especially retaliation. And this isn't like LE dispatch because there aren't any MESSAGE BOARD COPS coming to save the day....

Discussion: Friend to get a hip Replacement

I have spoke to two very prominent orthopedic surgeons in both Arizona and California that told me there is no such thing as true stem cell in the United States. There is in Europe, but in the US you would be wasting your money.

PRP treatment is prevalent in the United States now, but only works on certain types of ailments.

Call the Orleans hotel and ask for the person in charge of group rates. Tell her you are a softball team and most times they will give you a great group rate.

Orleans rooms are over-sized and it's off the strip but freeway close.

Discussion: Arroyo to Big League Dreams Friday Nite

I'm thinking if you can't afford to pay the $5 then why are you even in Vegas? BLD is a business and has operating costs. Besides turf infields don't have bad hops that hit you in the face.

And Vinny I only come on this board to make fun of you....hahahah.

Good luck this weekend brother....

Discussion: Get rid of Major +

Alan and Bob you are both right. How about as soon as you win 1 tournament you get bumped up?

Softball associations have begun to cater to mediocrity, so teams will enter tournaments and spend $$$$. Most teams have no desire to get better and move up. Every excuse from travel, $$$, playing the same teams, we can't hit enough HR's, we won't win, and we just play for fun are used to not move up.

If it was truly about competing then why wouldn't your team want to play at the higest level? And for those of you who say you just play for fun then what does it matter if you lose in the M+ division? Afterall winning isn't important it's just for fun.

Since softball is a business, associations must cater to everyone for monetary purposes. It's a shame people don't play for the competiveness rather than worry about not losing, because then there would be 2 divisions, uppers and lowers........

Discussion: rocky mountain championships

Vinny

Not too many 40 teams post on this site. usually just us older more mature guys.

I can tell you my 40 or 50 teams aren't going. As in any tournament you gamble on how many teams in your classification will show up.

I really wanted to play in Mesquite this year but there are no teams in our classification so we cancelled.

You should just try asking teams next tournament or convincing a few teams to try an attend otherwise you may end up playing a two team tournament.

The 50 major plus teams try to communicate about tournaments at the beginning of the year so we know who will be playing where and when.

So to answer your question it's a crap shoot. you will be rolling the dice.

Discussion: A True Equalizer

I understand the need for ratings based on skill level. I don't believe anyone is less of a player because they play at a lower rating. Omar you make good points about playing with your friends BUT if the friendship part is most important why not play straight up and strive to be competitive rather than worry about winning?

If a lower rated team beats us straight up then I will tip my hat and you can dance and open up champagne for all I care because you beat us the right way.

Discussion: A True Equalizer

Yeah DCPete my bad. Guess I was raised to try to get better and that nothing in life is free. You put the work in, do your best to be competitive and learn how to win. Guys like you are the reason there are only a few major plus teams. Now go to your den and dust off all your participation trophies.

Discussion: A True Equalizer

I am in favor of no Equalizer. I agree we give the lower teams too many advantages with runs and players and home run limits.

And an Equalizer where the lower team wins 40-50% of the time is asinine. If the lower team truly cared about getting better all they would care about is being competitive with the higher ranked teams.

And it's true when a team takes the runs and an 11th player and use lower HR limits and then they win, they jump around like they just won the world series. Is it really winning when you take runs and an extra player?

You really need to consider allowing players age 50+ to play. We all play against each other in tournaments anyway.

Discussion: ACL Injury

Lewbo

I had ACL surgery. Dr. used my hamstring to repair it which meant a shorter recovery time.

I believe your own hamstring, your own patella tendon or a cadaver tendon is used. Depends on your dr. and your body type. Also it depends if you did cartilage damage or not on recovery time.

Rehab is painful, but most important along with reaching full extension and flexion, or you may limp the rest of your life.

I was playing again with a brace in 5 months but limited. I was pretty close to normal at 7 months. Good luck, do the rehab and take it seriously.
