Great post TT. Thank you.

Discussion: Rock Ball in Vegas

Our LVSSA team worked various fields last FR.-Sun. A few of us worked Warm Springs on Fri. and watched the 60M. Do to the steady and strong wind the teams on #8 did have some shots. One HR landed about 40' into left field of #9. I believe no one hit a HR on #9 until the wind died down.

As for the ball, I thought Vegas did not use the Trump stotes, which this tournament used, and is considered not as good as the regular Trump ball.

Discussion: Thank you Sacramento.

On the SW Championship home page there were several activities offered, so I got a ticket for Cirque Du Soleil's show "Ka". Boy was I blown away. For me, it was better than "O". To Joe Lecak and associates for putting together some events during our tournament stay. I imagine by September with more time to work with the entertainment community, more choices will be offered. Well done.

Discussion: Pitchers Chest Protection

Try on some of the youth/HS age catcher chest protectors. You don't need the shoulder covers, just the area above your waist. They will be lighter than an umpires chest protector, but should protect you. Adult sized soccer shin guards should be ok. If you run for yourself, then you want something that is easily removed.

Discussion: Las Vegas schedule Boo Boo.

Please do over the 65+M and 70AAA. The 65M are listed in both age groups at different parks. Looks like someone had a long day.

Discussion: Mat vs. board

A "board" plate would have to be treated to help prevent warping do to rain, condensation, and infield watering.

Discussion: Mat vs. board

If SSUSA allowed a board plate, wouldn't the local tournament locations have to provide the board like they do now with the rubber mat?

Discussion: Spring Tourney-- Saint George Outfield Conditions

On Tuesday, there were fields at the Complex that had about a 5' band of an extra 2" of grass around the 200' area. By Wednesday AM, the fields we played on had that area cut.

Discussion: Collapsible Pitching Screen

If your league does not charge dues alank and depending on how many players there are, hit them up for a one time fee to buy the longer lasting Pitch-Safes.

A "Thunderstick" might serve the same purpose.

It does take a little practice to use the "button" in order to adjust the laces. The extra length of lace is just slipped under the crossed laces.

Discussion: shoes

Recently I searched for new shoes and found these.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M3U6DDU/ref=twister_B01J23V8FG?th=1

Yes, for trail runners, the soles wear out, but for us SB players, we play on grass, turf, and dirt infields. Several reviews mentioned how they kept their feet dry when the grounds were wet. For those of us still playing in St. G this afternoon (2:30) when the skies really opened up, there was at least 10+ minutes of steady rain before we were pulled off the fields. They decided not to complete them and winners were picked.

The first thing I did after grabbing my gear was check the inside of the shoes. Socks and shoes were dry with very little infield pebbles. These shoes are very comfortable and light. I'm glad I ordered a half size larger. Now to see how they feel after playing in 90+ temperatures.

Whatever the brand is, trail runners might be worth looking into. They might be pricey for some, but they may outlast two/three pair of regular SB cleats with outside materials that start cracking after a year or so.

Discussion: Anyone need an OF/IF for Bullhead?

Damn government! They told me Mannjo that the Witness Protection Program was a guarantee. If you're still playing with the South Shore Senior Softball Association at the Lawson Tower, Dreamworld, and Gates, give my best to everyone. When visiting family in 15, Kevin got me into a game one Sunday. Is Bob Maguire still wearing Notre Dame clothing? My best to you and the rest of the guys.

Dale,
Spoke with Roy tonight and he gave me the info. No guarantees, but I'll settle for pitched BP as a break from using the T.

There's a chance there might be an opening on our St. George team, so I'll get back to you either way. If the local team is set, I'd love to play with your team. Please use the above e-mail address and send me a message with a phone number. Do you know what time your team pays on the 3rd? If late morning or afternoon, I can drive down that morning. Also, does any of the team members need a roommate? I have reservations now for the 5th-8th which I can cancel.
Thanks
