Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: New rules and communication

Wow, I've been out of it and just found out about these new rule changes. AZ Elite started out as a 50 majors team, we were bumped up to 50 major plus and we didn't argue, we've never been afraid to compete against the best. When we were young playing A ball we couldn't wait to play in major tournaments. Our attitude hasn't changed. Over half of our team is over 55 but we want to stay together. We love the brotherhood that we have on our squad. My thoughts, only MY thoughts.....
1. I wish we could just show up at a park and play against all the 50 yr old teams. May the best team that weekend win. We've won our share and gotten beat as well. When you lose, you tip your hat and congratulate the other team. Make a vow to try and get better. We'll play anyone anytime. We'll battle, not sure we'll win but we'll battle and that's what we care about as a team. The competition and our teammates. We all love the game of softball, this softball disease that we share. That's why we do this still at our age. The softball sickness.....
2. I personally don't care what the HR rule is. We'll adapt and we'll do our best to compete.
3. I do care about trying to play in the best tournaments with the best competition. Out west we've started a major plus email communication so that we all share where we're playing so we can maximize teams and expenses. Major plus teams please join us and respond with an email address and we'll include you in our communique. There's power in numbers. If we stay together, communicate, then we'll be able to play in well attended tournaments. Whatever the organization is....
Lastly, Marv (god bless him) mentioned our 13-12 game with Nazzareno. He didn't mention the hurricane winds coming in from the outfield to the plate. Thus the score....
4. Sorry I haven't done this earlier. Congratulations to Flip and Nazzareno for winning the 50 major + worlds. I wish we could've given you a better game. No excuses but 5 games in a row on Sunday was too much for our old butts! You guys really rolled through the tourney, congrats again!!
Looking forward to battling in 2014. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

Discussion: Suspensions

I saw the whole thing after our game finished. The sun was down low and was creating a dangerous field and no way of seeing a ball hit hard at 3rd or SS. It was dangerous, It was brutal.... Braves 3B said he wouldn't play under those conditions and walked off the field. Then the talking started. Tournament officials decided to move fields and the talking continued as they were changing fields. The real shame of this is that it was only a handful of guys talking combined between both teams and now all players are suspended. For sure not fair to those who said or did nothing that was unsportsmanlike. Which was most of the players.....

Senior Softball. Is there anyway to get a list of the 50 & 55 major + teams and the managers contact info? I think we can drive better major + attendance to tournaments with some better communication between ourselves. Just need contact information in order to do so.

First thing I need from all Major + teams wanting to participate is contact names, email address, and phone numbers. We can even do a conference call which I can arrange. Please email them to me at davidquiroz37@gmail.com Any questions call me at 602-885-7550. I think if we communicate and agree to certain tourneys we can have some fun and really be able to compete. Hope this works. I'm willing to put in the work to make it happen.

Hey Mario, I agree. Nothing wrong with the rules. We just all want to play in tourneys that have more teams to play against. I know we'd all like to play more against the best competition. We'd enjoy playing against you guys more often as your squad is definitely one of the best of the best. I'd appreciate getting the contact info for your team to include in a 50 major+ managers document that I'll share with all teams. Hopefully through communication we can coordinate better attendance by major + teams. That's the goal.....

In the spirit of fixing 50 Major +.......
We (all 50 major+ teams) should all really try and get a meeting scheduled in Vegas at the world tourney and share contact info and ideas and maybe even commit to certain tournaments for 2014 so that we could all financially, and time off work, plan for them. I like the dialogue on how to improve the division, I think if we were all playing in tourneys that were well attended then there wouldn't be any problems. So maybe communication and planning is more of a key to solve the major + issue. Lets all get together and commit to playing together in different locations so that we all share the expenses throughout the year. Would the Northern Cal teams agree to a trip to SoCal, or AZ, or Vegas if we would have a 6 team turnout? I think if you guys would do that AZ Elite would also plan on being in Nor Cal, Vegas, and So Cal or anywhere else. How about a major + meeting in Vegas?

Would all the 50 major + leaders please email me their contact information. I'll get it all into one document and redistribute to everyone. Then maybe we could jump on a conference call as we plan our 2014 schedule. I'm willing to spear head this effort. Let me know your thoughts.

LeeLee,
I wish we could have come to your event. The problem this year is that we had players already purchase non-refundable flights to Sacramento. We would have really enjoyed a 6 team battle against the best of the best. We should all really try and get a meeting scheduled in Vegas at the world tourney and share contact info and ideas and maybe even commit to certain tournaments for 2014 so that we could all plan for them. I like the dialogue, I think if we were all playing in tourneys that were well attended then there wouldn't be any problems. So maybe communication and planning is more of a key to solve the major = issue. Lets all get together and commit to playing together in different locations so that we all share the expenses throughout the year. Would you Norther Cal teams agree to a trip to SoCal, or AZ, or Vegas if we would have a 6 team turnout? I think if you guys would do that AZ Elite would also plan on being in Nor Cal, Vegas, and So Cal. How about a major + meeting in Vegas?

Arizona Elite will be coming to Sacramento for the western nationals. What other major+ teams will be there? We sure hope there's a good representation from the west coast. See you on the fields soon.

Hi guys,
I wanted to point out a few things....

1. AZ Elite has 5 - 55 yrs old guys playing on our team, most importantly we're all really good friends regardless of age, and many of us have played together for many years, even when we were younger. We want to stay together and keep playing. I'll never agree with breaking up teams.
2. Marv talked about a great game between AZ Elite and Nazzareno Electric, 2 good teams, the only thing missing from that was the wind was blowing in really hard so not many HR's were hit. Nazzareno won a good game and congratulations to them are due!
3. Nazarreno is a great team as are the other Major + teams. We look forward to playing against them at every opportunity.
4. BUT...in ours and NW Legends case it's very hard and expensive to travel and be able to play against these great teams. I wish we could figure that out short of having a huge cash windfall come our way.
in the spirit of sharing coaches info here is mine for AZ Elite;

Tim, Here we go again..... I am not in favor of anyone breaking up a team because they win. We also got bumped up to major + and now we'll compete as best we can in this division. We welcome the challenge and enjoy competing against the best. If we win we win, if we lose we lose. We'll play the best we can and let the chips fall. We all have a softball sickness and truthfully that's why we all still play after all of these years. My brothers I play with on AZ Elite are the other reason. We'll play anyone, anytime. If we win or lose we'll enjoy the battle.
