It's too bad the coaches can't appeal balls and strikes.

Justin, maybe Mike Macenko will respond. I'm sure he knew Coy.

Discussion: Coy Honeycutt

Justin, I met your grandfather about 6 years ago in Myrtle Beach. We were eating lunch at a restaurant between games and Coy stopped one of our player seeing his uniform. My teammate came back to our table and told me and said that I may know them.
Coy and Charles Wright were there. I talked with them for about 20 minutes.
What a shame both of them have now left us now. I know you are proud of what Coy has meant to the world, especially the softball world!

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Using screen for pitcher

Our screen rules are similar to JR's, inside leg must be touching and inside the rubber. A batted ball hitting the screen is treated as a foul ball.
In our three or four years of using the screen a thrown ball has never hit the screen.

Jawood, I believe we're on the same page. The only ones that want to games to be played in a shorter amount of time are the tournament directors and umpires.

Discussion: Unfavorable weather conditons......

A few years ago someone did some research into the time saved by using the 1-1 count. I believe it was only 3-4 minutes a game.
If you want to speed up the game go to a one pitch game (tongue in cheek). I see no reason to speed up games.

Discussion: We ( TN Connection 55) are looking for a 55/over player (must border TN)

Brett, we may not be able to add another major plus player to our roster. If he only played with Hollis if FHC it might work.

Discussion: Senior Softball League - Atlanta

Didn't you see my reply to your earlier thread?
As for teams it may be too late in the year to find a team in need of a player.
fyi, you should include your age and level of desired play.

Discussion: Atlanta Area - Major or AAA Team

tony, we have a senior league at Al Bishop in Marietta that plays on Tuesday evenings. We allow senior bats. Check out our facebook page, Georgia Elite Senior Softball.
Other choices would be Best Friend park in Norcross, Tolleson park in Smyrna and Hobgood park in Woodstock.

Discussion: SSUSA Staff: Shaved Bats

Provided bats have been discussed many times here. In my opinion it won't happen, bat companies' profits would suffer.
About 12 years ago SPA provided Wicked Insanity bats at their hr derby at their nationals. It worked for me ;-)

What I have been told in the past, ;), is that player would receive 4 points.
One of the most important things to remember for someone with sshof aspriations/goals is to take photos and keep notes on your awards. Team name, age, division and dates are important.

SPA had a message board at one time but it wasn't maintained. Their staff never responded to any and all questions asked of them. It never really worked.

Topic: Tournaments
Discussion: would like an explanation

Tugboat, I haven't read all posts on this thread but to answer your latest post, the tournament in Salem (I assume you mean the one in a couple of weeks) is an ISSA tournament. The roster for that tournament is not necessarily the same at their SSUSA roster. So, teams could load up with different players in Salem.

Discussion: AD Starr Nightmare

Thanks Kevin. I feel proud to be 66 and be able to hang with the "young" guys!
Charlie Brown and Curt Mauer did a great job at pitching. Btw, Charlie was MVP.
We actually went 6-0. :)
I am happy to be able to hit the Nightmare with success. It has taken me a couple tournaments to adjust my swing to it but I am now very pleased with the results!

Very good Dave!
Paco, I agree. At least the patches should contain the year and division.
