SCUBA

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.

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........

Discussion: 55 Major Plus

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.

Nancy Allen

Yes you are correct. We are JK INC/Easton

PA

Why does it matter if we have a great sponsor? Why does it matter all of us fly to tournaments, and get some perks?

If you are that jealous then go practice and get better. We are always looking for players....

We will give runs or the players because the rules say we have to. No one on our team bitches or complains we just go play with a vengeance and try to kick teams asses.

Good luck to you PA and when you think you are ready call JK and I am sure you can get a tryout.

JK Inc. is a Major Plus team and we are required to give runs to other Major Plus teams.

Funny thing is no other Major plus team in Vegas in April took runs in round robin. One team took them in the playoffs, after they didn't take them in round robin against us.

I agree why is a major plus team taking runs or a fielder against another major plus team?

Wow fellas jealous already and it's only July.

Instead of hating why don't you go put some work in and get better.................

Oh my bad mediocrity is probably okay with you.

And last I checked Ego doesn't win games or championships. Hard work, dedication, togetherness and skills and abilities do.....

See you in October.

Discussion: Achilles Tendon Injury

Forrest 52

I had the surgery last Nov. 17th in Phoenix with a doctor who used a fairly new procedure where he added amniotic fluid to the tissue he used to graft. My doctor said 6-9 months before I could play. I said bullshit. He explained splitting my Achilles and removing the spur was major surgery.

I stayed off my foot for approx 5 weeks doing literally nothing for the first 14 days. Rode a foot scooter putting no weight on it after the first 14 days until week 6.

I started back playing March 1st. Wore a compression sleeve and did rehab to strengthen it. I got a runner and only ran to first base until May 1st when I began running for myself at about 80%.

Doctors tell you 12 months because they have to. Stay off of it, do the rehab and strengthening exercises and you may not be running at full speed but you can be back playing in less than 5 months.

Good luck.

Discussion: 4 DAYS NOW FOR VEGAS MASTERS?

If I recall:

All the bitching and whining about late night games or games with several hours between them was the reason SSUSA went to a 4 day schedule.

So next time you unnamed keyboard cowboys complain; watch what you wish for.

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Was The ump

As a middle infielder if you don't run out of the box with a runner on first I will let a fly ball in the infield drop every time to complete a double play. If the batter doesn't like it he can run to first so I don't do it. That's called being smart and trying to win.

I once did that same thing and the umpire called time and called an automatic out saying that I was required to catch all fly balls. I said I didn't touch it and he said it doesn't matter the rule book says you must catch all fly balls. I told the umpire he was the biggest DUMBSHIT in the world and to show me in the rule book where it says I am required by rule to catch every fly ball. He stopped the game pulled out his rule book and read it for 10 minutes. He didn't change the call but everyone in the game and watching knew he was a DUMBSHIT.....

If the defense is smarter than the offense don't get pissed just run everything out.....

Discussion: Reno 60

Dave

I think you should consider changing the championship game to the Carson City (crappy ass fields) so people playing 60 major plus won't complain about staying an extra day.

On the bright side you would only probably have to do that once before people get it...................

Discussion: Somerville

SS11

Nobody from SOMMERVILLE is going to come on this message board and tell you how many championships we have won.

We have/are successful because every guy puts in the work necessary to help the team win.

JK INC is probably the only other 40+ and 50+ team(s) as successful as SOMMERVILLE. And many players have played for both teams.

Both Summy and JK are very good sponsors.

Discussion: tournament brackets

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..................
