Discussion: National Senior Games In Birmingham AL

Kev
Most of the info above is correct, but!
You need some more info. The senior games are held every four
years. You must play in a state tournament and be in the top
three in each age group to qualify for National games. I have
been to the one in Kentucky, San Francisco and Cleveland. Yes
they cost more but if you like to play ball it's a chance to
play with people you have not played with, assuming you start
a new team, and play against teams you have not played against
before. It is very hard to get commitments from player for
this tournament because you play state tournament one year and
National the next. I have played 65 70 and 75 and found that
most teams had some very good player and some very bad player
so it all came out even in end. Cleveland was the best one
of the three that I played in. Not sure when the next National
games are but I think next year 2018. Each state has it's own
rules. Tenn will not let you play on their softball team unless
you live in the state. I think the rules are, check them out, if there is not a team in your state you can play in another state.
Kentucky has not every had a team even when the tournament
was here. If you put a team together I would like to tryout with
you, 65, 70 ,75. Yes, it's like the Huntsman games, they make it last 7 days.

Discussion: Can you get faster?

the first ? is why do you want to run faster?? If are or have been
fast and if you just want to turn a single into a double work on
getting out of the batter box faster and making the turn at first
base. I'm 75 and run for 65-70 and 75's. I like to make it from
first to third on a grounder to out field. If you get your steps
down and your turn at second it's easy. Also you plan on 50% bad
throws from the out field or 50% of the time the third baseman
will not catch the throw

Screamer You got a lot of good reasons but you
did not get the right answer.

If you did not have the pool games who would be
number one seed and who would be the last seed?

Discussion: texas state championships

I can tell you after running some tournaments it
does not make any difference if you do it in
2 days of 3 days or 4 days there will be complaints by more than one or two. I stopped
doing it because we, as a group, are not very
nice people and can some time just be cruel

Discussion: Official. Softballs

Here is the solution to your problem. The need for a new ball for each game is in your head not
in the ball. Let's assume that you bat 15 batters and the all bat 1,000, 3 for 3, for the seven inning game, that's 45 hits on the ball. If both teams hit the same ball that's only 90 hits on the ball. I think the good balls that SSUSA uses can take that many hit's without getting soft.

So the solution to your problem is to use the
same ball for your first three games, the warm up games.

Discussion: Bat Weights & Bat Doughnuts

The study is right--you build bat speed befor
the season starts. I start BP in Jan Feb with
some old 34oz wood bat and try and build up
muscle and speed. I got one of those end of the
bat swing speed computers last year so I check
my speed at each BP--it's a good item and it work for me.
