Doc, is a great teammate and an asset to any team, he can run, catch and hit. He played on our 55 team and was very helpful when called upon.

Good luck Doc.

Staff, question:

team gets rated to next level, major to major plus. if a player does not wish to continue with that team for the next season, is he a major plus player prior to ever playing at that level or can he still retain his major status.

Discussion: 2017 SSUSA Senior Masters

Mike, I just want say, don't you think that every 1.21 senior bat is hot out of the wrapper. I been asked many of time which bat to swing. I am in no way in your league when it comes to power, but I believe I work hard on my swing in the gym,at BP. With all that said I believe and tell everyone who ask which is the best bat out there, i say the one, you are most comfortable with in you hands.

I believe working out and BP at our age is more important than the bat. also there is one other thing i do and that is video tape my swings and try to stay consistent in my swing.

Discussion: Thank You

I wanted to thank who ever posted the pool game scores for the 50 major plus bracket, I hope it did not take a lot of effort.

With that said why can't it be done across all division, is it really that hard? Or is it just that SSUSA does not want to post, I simply don't get it.

Please, please try to get with the times. All players want to see what other divisions are doing, I still can't and won't believe it's that difficult.

Discussion: Las Vegas Softball

Sounds like to me Mr.Las Vegas is running for mayor. LOL.

Our weather (Florida) in the winter is great and in the summer not so good. That's why we are rated so high.

With that said the villages is a great retirement community, even though I don't live there, they have great parks and recreational facilities. SSUSA does not play there, they should 10 fields in 2 parks, top notch.

They have a tournament in October non-sanction, great time.
Open to 50 and 60 divisions no ratings, open homeruns and open runs per inning like the young bucks play.

Discussion: message board standard for all

I think having this message board is a great tool. But with that said I think using a screen name and not having to at least have you real name attached to your statements allows for people to hide and not face up to there statements.

my thought.

scremer5, in south florida we have a one walk rule, if any player is walked once the next time he has the choice of a new count. This a league not tournament play. Leagues are for fun and enjoyment. So have fun.

Discussion: POSTING ALL SCORES IN 2017

Titanhd, i guess when you read the newspaper and look up your favorite team you don't look at the score. So it does not matter if your team won by 20 or lost by 20.

Just asking!

I myself like to see how my Red Sox did, scores and wins and losses.

So, yeah if someone could just go to the bracket which is already posted on the tournament page and fill in who and what happened that would make me happy.

I think SSUSA needs a new IT guy that can give them access to that page so a tournament director can fill in the lines.

Not that hard to do with todays technology. All you need is a smart phone.

So staff lets move into this century and make this happen.

:)

Discussion: POSTING ALL SCORES IN 2017

Dave, I know you have a hard job keeping up with all the tournaments and all the ranting and yelling on this web site.

With all that said, if you did it correctly every night after the sessions, someone could go into the bracket and post names of teams and scores and who advanced through the brackets.

Does not seem to be so difficult to US.

If you like go to the ISSA web page and see how they do it.

Everyday anyone could see results as the tournament progresses.

Just asking (would love to see it happen here).

the brackets are already posted on the web site, just allow someone to fill information.

my opinion, hope you understand.

Thank you for reading and listening.

Discussion: Eastern National Results

I have expressed my opinion about this issue a lot in the pass.

I have done so because i like playing SSUSA , but I very much like how ISSA goes about posting and promoting teams that win there events, I.E. pictures of teams and individual awards and how the bracket broke down through the games played.(winners and looser)

I think that maybe this web site does not allow or at least make it easy to do so.

But it sure would be nice to see how teams actually did in the tournament.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: shaved bats

Pizzaboy, I know there are a lot of shaved bats out there even in senior ball. But one thing, our bats are not checked for compression, therefore when these bats get hot, really hot they perform more than they are suppose to. Don't you agree. So how do you check them and determine if they are shaved or just broken in. Hard to tell without opening them up.

I once had a black combat centurian. The lid keep falling out. I showed it to a Miken rep at a tournament, just after I had the lid 5200 back in place. He took the bat and put it through a compression check and told me it did not pass, I continued to use that bat and would you believe about 10 to 15 swings later it broke. But i know that bat was never rolled or shaved,

so my question is how do we stop it. How can we tell.

If you can give a good method of exposing the cheaters I am all in.

Discussion: For U hitting experts

if bat is broken in and has spider crack, better hit ball where the cracks are will last longer.

For me, just pick it up and where it feels best on the grip.

Hit away!
