Wait, what? Rolling a bat is now illegal? Can I use the ones I had rolled before they changed the rule? Just kidding, everyone good luck at your Worlds events, play hard, have fun and be safe.

Discussion: Jim Sherman Memorial last weekend Salem OR

Just wanted to say that we played the Sherman Memorial last weekend at Wallace Marine. Field Crew did a great job, fields were prepped before every game, watered, lined, raked etc. Games were on time, TDs very approachable, balls seemed fine, at least there were plenty of HRs hit as far as I could tell, never heard anyone complaining and you had to dodge HR balls when driving out of park. Bathrooms were very clean and concessions had a lot to offer, including cold beer. Great tourney, great competition. To be clear, I have no idea how the fields down in Albany played. We are very quick to get on here and complain, which is our right, but there is nothing wrong with pointing out a job well done by SSUSA and Parks Dept. That is all. Jim Perry #19, Wolfpack 55M.

Discussion: Jim Sherman Salem, OR July 12-17

Hi Dave, I hope you are well. I just noticed that Albany has been added as a venue for the Jim Sherman. Correct me if I am wrong, but that was not the case last week, it only showed Wallace Marine. Can you please tell me where 55M will be played this year, my team made reservations assuming we were in Salem. If we are in Albany some players may want to try to move. We have been in Albany the last couple years, so maybe its our turn to be in Salem? Anyway, take care and thanks for any info you can provide. Jim Perry, Wolfpack 55M.

I agree with half of that. It is a great team. Not sure about the coach. Jeff, just kidding. I hope you are well and have a great holiday with family. Jim Perry

Discussion: You make the call - please

Webbie, I have always enjoyed your posts on this board and I have almost always agreed with what you have to say. That opinion changed today when you started your post with the words "Interesting Discussion" :). This is classic 'Beating a Dead Horse' and Turning2, you need to quit saying that you are not on here to argue. That's all you do and unless people totally agree with you, you keep coming back like a bad cold. There needs to be a separate board for BJ, Turning and Wayne to argue about random senior softball situations.

Discussion: Salem Results

Us old guys are always quick to jump on here and complain everytime SSUSA does something that gets our blood pressure to rise (literally) so I wanted to point out that our team played in Northwest Championship/Jim Sherman Memorial this past weekend. We were sent off to the little outpost of Albany 30 some miles from Salem, yes it was inconvenient especially on Friday but we got through it and American currency is accepted in Albany. Timber Linn was not in bad shape considering the recent heat wave here in the west. I know outfields were a bit choppy in places but fields in good shape for most part. Games were on time, umps were really nice and professional,TD was very approachable, competition was excellent (thanks Bend Dirt Dogs, ERI, Vanc Connect, and All Out for excellent games. We were fortunate enough to win the event and the prize package was fantastic, great shirts (no comments needed from the guys that claim they don't play for a shirt they play for pride, FYI-you can do both) Anyway awesome shirts and a beautiful plaque that we are dedicating to our sponsor who passed away about a year ago, Bob "BA" Allen. I would love to see more teams attend this event next year, thanks SSUSA for a very well run and fun event. Dave are field assignments and scores complete for next years event yet?

Discussion: Dont blame SSUSA for the ball problem.

Dave, I just saw your response. Yes, I did figure it was Albany Oregon :) I was hoping we were at Wallace Marine, but so be it. I am relieved to see that we are sticking with a "spherical, optic yellow' ball.

Hi Dave, not trying to pile on. Your last post references Albany for the Jim Sherman in addition to Salem. Albany is a long ways from Salem. When will teams know if they have to travel to Albany? Thank you for all you do for us. Jim Perry

Discussion: ROCK 'N RENO CHALLENGE...BRAVO !!

55 Major Rock n' Reno was awesome. Great complex, clean bathrooms, games on time, excellent umpiring in every game, TD returning texts with bracket play info so we didnt have to drive back, great competition. Everything about the event was top notch. Thanks Dave D, you are the man. Also if Ron was the UIC, you had an excellent crew working the 55 Major bracket. Very professional but also approachable, none made it about them, it was all about getting the calls correct and keeping the games moving. Cant wait until next year when 55M is back at Golden Eagle :)

Discussion: Polk County

How come when people go on here and attack the TDs and the TD comes back with a polite professional answer, the person very rarely comes back and apologizes or says 'Wow I feel stupid, sorry about that'. I seriously wonder what will happen to all these tourneys that occur every year when the people that run them finally decide that it is not worth the hassle or having to deal with all the complaining. People have every right to ask questions, I always question why it takes so long to get tourney results, and its a valid question. But it is possible to ask a question without coming across as a complete dick.

You know things are returning to normal now that people are complaining about scores not being posted and SSUSA justifying it. I sure have missed that. Welcome back everybody!!!! Now I just need somebody to tell me they dont play tournaments to win T-shirts and/or their garage is filled with boxes of them then I know we have conquered COVID. Good luck everyone, enjoy the game.

I am so happy that this site is turning into an umpire pissing match message board. As soon as one subject gets beaten to death, then we just start a new one. So entertaining.

Discussion: Elite Sports jerseys

I don't think he (or she) is bitching or complaining, just asking for help or guidance on a message board, which is one of the main uses of a message board. Free shirts? Travel a team (assuming they traveled in) to Phoenix, stay in hotels, buy meals, rent cars, possible air line tickets, entry fee etc etc. No such thing as a free shirt in softball. I believe he is just trying to find out about the prize his team won. What is wrong with emailing someone during the holidays and asking a question? Is there a specific timeframe for this type of email? Some folks only have time to send emails during that time of year because they are on vacation. People ask questions on this board and then get blown up for asking. It kind of defeats the purpose of the board.

The man asked a simple question and gets blown up by everyone. And Stever, you need to read the fine print, serious. Senior softball is a great value but it's not 3 bucks a year.

Discussion: Running lane violation

What you should be sorry about is that 2 'grown' men turn most of the discussions on this board into name calling and a 'who's got the biggest dick contest' until SSUSA eventually has to shut down the post and the person who asked the original question never gets their answer. I am surprised that SSUSA gives either of you as much rope as they do, especially your 'crypronite' who seems to be able to say whatever he wants with no repercusions. The whole thing is both childish and annoying.

Thank you to SSUSA for getting the scores for the Winter Worlds on line. I also want to add that even the notion that SSUSA does not get up to date on technology is because they have chosen saving lives over the need for up to date scoring is so beyond ridiculous that is makes my head hurt. I am not an accountant, but I am going to wager to say that with what tournaments cost we could probably have AEDs and some modern technology. SSUSA, thank you for a great event in Phoenix, excellent field care, approachable TD, good umping etc. Thanks AZ Old School and Colorado Thunder for some great games. Your teams are total class acts.
