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

Wizkid
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 ball...lol.
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.

Swing.....

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.

Discussion: Western Nationals 50 Major predictions

The sue is a double edged sword for both teame. Batters cant see the ball for great hits and dangerious for pitchers who can't see the ball coming at them.
I've been in the sun many times and it isn't pleasant...
Have complained to no avail except for in St. George where the game was delayed for about ten minutes. Never had a game delay in SSUSA for the sun or wind, and both can be bad.

One remedy for sun is to wear welders glasses\goggles. They work. Wind, bring a kite...lol.

Tri18,
Was going by your 1st post of July 20 about same as production line model.
Personally, I would have expected more than a 'blank'.
But thanks for reply.

Discussion: Cracked Dudley

I figure you got your money's worth out of it. Thats about 2-3 years worth of use. Most other bats out there expecially the U-2's, your lucky to get 200.
Buy another one & use this one for BP only.

1. So which model is this Miken bat?
2. Still no mention of a warranty for it, only mentioned for other models.

Rule book: 3.6 Gloves

Last sentence spells it out Nothe th 14inch part at beginning of 4th line.

Here are the maximum length specifications: palm width (top) 8" (20.3 cm), palm width (bottom) 81⁄2 (21.6 cm), top opening of web 5" (12.7 cm), bottom opening of web 41⁄2 (11.5 cm), 1st finger crotch seam 71⁄2 (19.05 cm), thumb crotch seam 71⁄2 (19.05 cm), crotch seam 161⁄2 (41.91 cm), thumb top to bottom edge 91⁄4 (23.5 cm), 1st finger top to bottom edge 14" (35.56 cm), 2nd finger top to bottom edge 131⁄4 (33.66 cm), 3rd finger top to bottom edge 121⁄4 (31.12 cm), 4th finger top to bottom edge 11" (27.94 cm).


I used to a 15" Nakona glove for 3 years when I first started playing sr ball. Never was callen on it. Traded it for a bat...big mistake.
Have never heard of anyone being called on over size either. Same for examination of bats. Might happen but time constranis sure put a damper on that for everyone.

All I can say is that if it's that good, why no mention of a warranty? After all, Miken had one earlier with one.

That's good advice on the socks. I used to do that in rainy times of the year. But you really neer know about grass fields in the AM and after the rains re puddles.
Stay healthy Bob.

Discussion: Waterproof Softball Shoes?

Inreading up on many of these products I notices some (not all) have a negative side to their use... deteriation of leather and laces for some of them. So you need to read the labels err do research before using.
If you use a real old school shoe maker, ask what he'd recommend.

Any one remember the Legend 2 Centerfire balls? IMO they held up and flew, as well as the ones with the Reptile covers were water repellent.
So many breands and all were used back when it was a better time.
