Discussion: face masks

IMO the rational solution would be to do a 180* and return to the alloy bats and 47 cor balls. Balls will still fly out of the park as they did back then. If that is what your trying to get now. I can't recall anyone getting seriously wacked back then. But I have seen many with the newer composite bats.
Sure the money would dry up for the associations on sanctioning the high tech bats for a bit, too bad. But IF it safety that IS your concern, thats where the focus should be, on the bats, then the balls would fall in line as they were back then.
I think the mask issue is a facade, it keeps the manufacturers happy and money coming in to assns. But that too would come back with the re-tooling. Maybe even provide more jobs. I doubt they trashed the old extruder machines.
No need to this forcing someone to purchase & wear the gear should they pitch.

Discussion: Intentional walk rule

i'd walk him on gereral principals if nothing more. Perhaps he can't hit his way out of a wet paper bag either. A waaste of time throwing 4 balls he can't hit anyway standing inside the box.
We play ASA league here and you can just motion for the intentional walk. No need to pitch them. I've been walked and have walked a few that way.

Discussion: Batting Average or On Base Percentage

This is another one of the debates that comes around every so often.
I feel there is a flaw in both. If one hits into a double play or forces an out, those are not taken into consideration yet he gets a hit for both categories should he get on base.

Discussion: Status of the GSC bat

Mike, I forgot about that though we share the same problem. I put it aside as with my others and manage around them. Takes some of the stress off me anyway.
Take care and have a good new year.

Discussion: Status of the GSC bat

If my memory serves me correctly, ED A. aka surf88, went to the that "factory" back east but had to sign a non disclosure on what he saw. Which I said was really strange back then.
In light of all this I doubt that signed piece of paper is worth anything.
So why hasn't he chimeg in on any of this.
Hopefully he is in contact with the DA.

Discussion: Status of the GSC bat

Simple Definition of integrity
: the quality of being honest and fair

: the state of being complete or whole

Full Definition of integrity
:  firm adherence to a code of especially moral or artistic values :  incorruptibility

:  an unimpaired condition :  soundness

:  the quality or state of being complete or undivided :  completeness


Failed big time, IMHO

Stay safe everyone, the holiday traffic and weather is nasty.

Discussion: draft matrix

Any thought to :
No pool play games, you loose three games you go home. Not sure how that would effect the number of games played but it might be interesting.
If you draft as its been its usually the stronger teams pitted against the lessor, but with the draft proposed above it should be fairly even.

Discussion: Has anyone had L5 spinal fusion and returned to good playing form?

Regarding the MRSA issue. It is nasty. I got it in a hospital while there and need to take a med before any all aops I not have sine then, that was in 2000. It stays with you for life as I understand it. It is not only the host & staff it is also visitors that can bring it to you.
In 2014 I was in waiting for the Dr for anistesia briefing and he asked if I took the med, I had not been given it for the time frame needed and the op was cancelled until another week having taken it.

Discussion: Has anyone had L5 spinal fusion and returned to good playing form?

I have a friend (55 ish), who had it last year in about Oct-Nov, and was playing this year in March. I need it for L3-5 and am putting it off cause my fusion in my neck isn't taking or doing well. That was C4-7. There are many different avenues to take research them, However some Dr's like mine are set to do Fusions. I have had the numbness for years in legs which is the back problem I also have it in my arms on occasion which is the neck. I still get this one.
My word of caution would be 1. check other avenues. 2. Check you Dr out. 3. read up on alternatives you found. 4. if you have it do the PT for it.
Stay healthy.

Discussion: Player classification

Might be easier to go by the ratings the teams you have playd for. All assns too, but primarity this one SPA ans ISA I believe.

Going back about 3-4 years cause though they say 2-3. Also since they say they don't rate players, :>? yet use a graph for that to figure the players stand, with how many players are at a the 'team' level or above\below it. there is a chart for that on one of the links above or do a search for it.
Simplicity is if your playing to two tewams one being a AAA & another AA, your a AAA player. Unless you perhaps only played in one tournament with them. Or the other way around.
Teams can pick up 3 higher rated players that they are usually without being booted up a notch, but they do do that so be careful.
They do a good job but it could be better is the rosters were open, and not hiding something.
Go play... stay healthy and safe.

Discussion: Why is this rule not enforced??

If rules are not enforced then IMO, the players are not getting what they paid for on and\at all levels.
Concsistancy, especially within the scope of these post have\has always been a problem. Yet while some are unstandable many are not. ExMPLES: Judgement calls are the latter, Eracing a line is not.

I have only seen one player warned about oblitering a box line over the years.

Discussion: Is it illegal to glue your endcap back in?

In 2012 I had my OG grey Combat endcap break in half . I called Combat about it since it was about a decade old and the CS gus said they do not have those caps abao;able any more. Isled Aren't they all the same size, cand coul;d be used? He said and sent me a Return authorization number. I sent the bat in andthey fixed it.
As stated above its the best policy to go by, they would know it its alstered and likely not return the bat to you is that be the case.

Discussion: First time for everything

Re: STLO's post on the SUN issue.
Back in either '06 or 07 I was in St. G pitching for Stefco Silver Stix 55's out of ON, CA when the sun became a deadly issue. batters couldn't see the ball coming in that pitchers faced the same. About second inning I pitched a ball and never saw it from there. The UMP stopped the game and told me it just missed by had at ear level. He had the BALLS to delay tha game for about 10 minutes.
He is the only UMP I've seen let alone heard about doig that.

Discussion: Posting Big Tournament Scores in a Timely Manner

Those two posted for 55's are at the same complex the others were at other locations.
While I agree about the tech out there, the time to gather info from all sources (TD's) won't happen in a day.
it's been tried and failed, twice. We (you) are actually lucky to get that much.
Best to contact your friends to get some info. Maybe they could run around gathering info fron various parks. But the players give faster input than the assn has time to do, but it gets done eventually, about 2-3 weeks down the road.

With weather around mid 70's in am and low 100's in afternoon, just hope the heat doesn't take it toll on the players let alone the
Hope for early games. 'Cept for the sun rising. Wind is 9mph out of nw I think it was., something to consider when hitting that way...or against it.

Discussion: Western Nationals 50 Major predictions


You should know by now that ncssa plays favorites with certain teams. Heck, if I remember right they aren't even using all the fields so I'd think sonething could have been changed at least for the am and sunset times not that they would be playing then.

Used to be a fantasticassn, not so much these days imo. Too bad there isn't another assn in the valley other than the ASA for seniors in Fresno and on the coast. But even it could be much better.
