Discussion: Established team looking for infielders

Heard how you finished from Nutzy, most everyone knows him, I think you might have some players that have played with me before when I was with Conn. Sportsplex and yes am thinking about playing again. Can play all infield positions and can play the outfield but would rather not. Are you getting bumped to Major Plus, usually Top 5 teams get the unwanted news.

Jay, haven't played for a couple years but would like to get back into it, and it was after I got kicked out in the first inning after a 2 run homer, standing up for our lead off hitter, oh, that was you. stay in touch and tell your Dad (Gary Bonner) hello.

Joe, are you still looking, I may be able to drop down to AAA, haven't played for a few years, due to health issues, but, might be looking to get back in the fight. Live in Pa., Pittsburgh area. Can play any position, except pitch. If you would like to talk, I can be reached at: rsnod8@comcast.net or 412-370-8736. Hope to talk with you soon.
Thanks, Rick

Jay, how did you guys finish, and just be glad you didn't play at Cheyenne park, terrible fields and very very seedy neighborhood.

Discussion: Question for SSUSA or any one who might know.

The way I am reading this , it seems like a 3 year shelf life and not a 2 year, what am I missing? If I last played 55 in 2012, that is 3 years not 2, and will be 4 years in 2016.

Discussion: Easton BSR Senior bat

Guys, what's the word on the Easton Senior bat, break in period?, pop?, durability?

I didn't play this year, so I haven't had a chance to swing it, but, was an Easton guy years ago.

Discussion: How can SSUSA possibly reclassify an established Major+ team

taits, thats BS, it has never been about the game, has always been about the money, was back then and is today, what I'm saying is that it started with players bitching, moaning and complaining, they didnt want to play this or that team, if this or that team was in the tourney then we aren't coming, still goes on today, more than most realize.
Why do you think the Major division is no longer, the A division is dead, the B division is on its why out, C same thing, but look at the D and E, alive and well, Making all the money for the associations, compare that to the Major Plus dead, Major soon to come, but, AAA and AA everyone wants to play and stay there.
Perfect example, I played in the USSSA E Worlds a few years ago with my sons team out of AZ, they were short and asked in to go, I had to be in Orlando on Wednesday night because the tourney started on a Thursday, over 200 hundred teams, 200 hundred E teams, ya right, E teams that couldnt keep the ball in the park, they were not allowed any home runs, none. 200 hundred E teams,yes that is all about the money and teams not wanting to play where they should be playing, the only time it is about the game is when you're with your buds getting some swings because you still love the game. Just a thought, still goes on today in our senior game today, guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Can you even imagine the bitching, moaning and complaining, if they ever would do away with Major Plus, it would be never ending.
Had a similar discussion with some older players not long ago, and we decided that this is going hand in hand with the crap that started to kill this game years ago, with all the classifacations, not wanting to play this team , that team, seems that that generation is now the ones trying to kill the senior game. That was all 25-30 years ago, and now the same ones are of senior age. Sad.

More likely the later,teams see who's there, don't want to play them, less teams, not more.

Was wondering if Doc's, out of Ohio was having a team this year, if so if they are in need of any players, I may be interested, so someone knows, that would be cool.

Alan, get me your shipping address and I/ll try to get it out to you this week, it was 1 of 3 you sent to my buddy in McKeesport,Pa. I was hoping to get it ready for Las Vegas, but, it didn't last long enough, this senior softball is really starting to get quite expensive, this is the 5th bat that I have broken just this year, 3 ultra's, 1 reebook and then this ambush, I do still have the Combat Original that I got at the start of the season, they seem to last about a year for me, but they are not the same as when they first came out about 5 years ago, drop me your shipping address and I will look forward to seeing you in naples, Rick
