Discussion: Still Looking for a Few Good Players?

JT may want to check with Lighthouse. They lost Charlie Brown, probably for the season, after an injury in Valley, Al.
Maybe I'll see you in Pensacola this weekend.

Discussion: Umpires- Pitching Rules

The umpires we had at Valley were good and very consistent. I think the reason many complain about the flat pitch is we aren't used to it. A 6' pitch seems very flat, especially if the catcher catches it around his knees or waist. Those that throw it seem to try to stay between 5 and 10 feet. If you have two strikes you might want to be swinging at that "flat" pitch.

Discussion: ACL Surgery Follow up

I had ACL reconstruction 3 or 4 years ago. I couldn't play ball for about 8 months. I wore a Donjoy brace. I did 6 weeks of pt before surgery and then after surgery. I'm playing again and my legs feel better than ever.
Good luck!

Discussion: Need your opinon....and ideas

Yes Perl, the Atlanta area could probably field at least a couple of teams.
Brett, ASA is showing signs of entering senior softball tournaments. They are looking at low fees as you mentioned.

Discussion: Clean vs Dirty

Clean for me. I keep a wet rag on the dugout fence and wipe it after every at bat if I throw the bat down. There is a teammate that doesn't like the tacky surface so he doesn't clean his.

Discussion: Ball Exit Speed Testing and top Pro Speed Demos..Swing Makeover #52

Bogie, with my Swing Speed Radar and a balanced bat I was able to reach 93mph. It wasn't a swing that I would have used in a game, I was swinging out of my shoes!! I'm very happy with a speed somewhere in the 80's.
I can't wait until Cocoa Beach to try yours again.

Yes, another great video!
Using my Swing Speed Radar I clocked Bret Kreuger at 103mph. I would like to see what he does on your radar!

Player99, you should have added durability. I have a preference but would rather not say.

Discussion: slow pitch slider

Me either. I threw this pitch years ago but seemed to lose it recently. I now realize that I must fine tune it.

I agree Yank!
And, by the way, for being wrong, you are banned from posting here for six months. Oh, wait a minute, you've only posted three time in 4 or 5 years! ;)
See you Tuesday.

Discussion: Get rid of Major +

I'm guessing posters here are telling how many years they've played major plus so we can see their perspective.
As for me I've played major plus for 12 years out of my 16 years in senior softball.

One problem, besides being able to only play another team two out of three games, is that in some qualifiers other teams won't play you at all, even when offered the 5 runs or the additional defensive player.

The only recourse is to play nationals. Some years our schedule looked like this: TOC, SSUSA Spring Nationals, ISF World Cup, ISSA World Championships, SPA Nationals, LVSSA/SSUSA World Masters and finally the SSUSA Winter Nationals.
That's only 7 tournaments. Most years we didn't play in the SSUSA Winter Nationals so that left 6.
This is what a major plus team would have to look forward to.
If they don't have a generous sponsor it would be prohibitive to most players.
