Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Roaster

Assume you mean "roster." If a team forfeits a 1st game due to pregame injury or serious health problem and doesn't have enough to legally start a game; and, if they add to the roster with legal player so they can play and not be out entire tournament expense, what's the harm?
If it's a tourney where a qualified roster is the rule (T.O.C., World Championship), that's a different kettle of fish.

Discussion: Changing Format for 70 Year Old Division

baseballbill Losers bracket is the nature of the beast, I wouldn't want it any other way. I'm also a 70's, and like the challenge presented with current format. I do understand your plight though, it is a mountain if you hit the losers bracket early.

As posted below in your other "trump rocks" post, the ISA X-ROCK is the best.

Discussion: trump rocks

norgenorth, disagree with you. I just put my new in the wrapper Rocks and Stotes on the postal scale, all the Stotes were lighter than all the Rocks. I had 12 Rocks at 6.4-6.55oz. 8 Stotes were 6.25-6.35oz. As a pitcher, I find no difference in accuracy, curve and screwball are the same, and I don't throw a knuckleball so can't comment. I would guess the lighter ball would be better for the knuckle, assuming the seams are the same height.

Slip if the tongue Staff, or slip of the typing fingers! I know that, I work at both of them. Had the upcoming Springs on my mind I guess. Thanks for correcting.....

Discussion: Surgery

Mannjo, I had TURP in 2013. Your Dr. is being very safe with you. A month is very adequate, I was back playing in a couple of weeks. My procedure was in mid afternoon, went home the following afternoon. Took it real easy 1st day home and just rested, 2nd day up and about and fairly normal. After that, pretty much back to normal schedule only with greater flow. Did scare the heck out of myself quite awhile after recovery when I passed chunks of blood. My Doc said it was normal for quite awhile to have areas that are healing break off. I passed some blood occasionally for about 6 months. No pain, good to go fairly quickly. Good luck.

Cat, LVSSA/SSUSA Spring Worlds and the Masters Championship uses the X-ROCK-ISA-Y ball. We used the ASA Rock in Bullhead City this past week, I thought it was a good ball that held up well. (it wasn't overly hot, 70's, so no way to tell if it would be heat affected)

Discussion: Staying behind the pitching screen

Boro, BJ is correct on it's a league thing. But, there are some very good senior leagues that allow the pitcher to pitch over the screen. Palm Springs for example, which is a fantastic and well organized league, allows over the screen, but pitcher must be behind the screen when ball contacts the bat. If you field the ball as a pitcher being outside the box when contact is made, it's a dead ball single.
On the other hand, Las Vegas Senior Assoc. won't allow over the screen, and must pitch from the pitching hand side of the screen, and you don't have to be behind screen at all. Different leagues create different rules (or lack thereof).
IMO, "IF" you are required to play with a screen, you should be required to use it for the reason it was placed in service.

Discussion: Seniors 75 and over allowed to use composite bats?

???? ALL Seniors get to use composite bats like the Miken UII. SSUSA sanctions composites in their rules as legal for all age seniors.

Discussion: Loose end cap

3M Marine Adhesive 5200. Did 4-5 for guys in our league, all wore out the bat or broke it and end cap never budged. Give it plenty of time to cure in the sun if possible. None of the ones I did had less than 2 weeks cure time.
