Discussion: Turf Shoes for Plantar Fascitis

I had it really bad in my right foot a couple years ago. Unbelievably painful. For me, the most important things were wearing an insert in all of my shoes all the time and constantly stretching my toes up towards my knees. When you sleep, your feet automatically relax in the wrong direction so I rigged up a long arm stretch band around my waist like a belt and the other handle around my foot to pull my toes back. This worked wonders. I still consciously stretch my feet when laying down and haven't had an issue since.

DD, I totally understand. I have followed this board for many years and often enjoy your responses to the anonymous posters. It is the same on other social media forums where many hide behind fake profiles to post the most ridiculous things. Not sure how you maintain your sanity sometimes. Keep up the great work!

Ollie4, exactly my first thought after reading it. I have thought for a long time that you should be required to have your info in your profile.

Discussion: Ruling

So if they anticipated a potential tie and substituted BJ for Stick in the bottom of the 7th because BJ is way faster than Stick then they have just circumvented the purpose of the rule. I do not know the correct answer but I would think that the intent of the rule would be that Stick has to run. The rule states "last batter", not 'last batter position".

I agree with Dbax. I have used foam pipe insulation before and it works well due to the cushioning and flexibility.

The late Jerry Jackson's wife, Amy, is the tournament director for this. I would suggest contacting her with your questions. I don't recall seeing her on this message board in the past. Her contact info is: Amy Jackson,
309-267-8324, ajackson@dist102.org

Hope to see you there. We are also 55AAA.

Discussion: Loss of a great softball director

The softball world has suffered a great loss. SSUSA and ISA director Jerry Jackson passed away yesterday at the age of 73. Jerry will be missed tremendously. My deepest sympathy to Jerry's wife, Amy, and family.

Discussion: Please, a story from anyone! Anything but Corona, Corona, Corona!

I was a hardcore baseball player who swore that I would never play slow pitch softball. At age 35 I changed my mind. I joined a 35+ team with some friends who had been playing for years. We went to a tourney near Minneapolis and I started at 3B. I had my tiny Ozzie Smith baseball glove and was wearing baggy reversible basketball shorts. First batter in first game hits a piss rocket one hopper at me. Ball hits my glove and disappears. I am hopping around looking for the ball and can't find it anywhere. Everyone thinks it is in my glove but it isn't. Our coach, who is playing right center is screaming "THROW THE FU%*ING BALL"!! Then the ball falls out of the leg of my shorts which had wrapped around the ball Everyone starting laughing their asses off. We proceeded to run rule that team. Welcome to slow pitch softball. LOL!

Discussion: Corona Virus (COVID-19) Part II

Capt Kirk, please recheck your facts and don't spread false information about such a serious subject. I work for a health department and I will tell you that Wood_1966 is exactly right in his above comment. The virus that is currently going around is not transmitted by animals. It is human to human. The false rumor that it can be transmitted by animals is unfortunately causing animal shelters to be overloaded by people panicking and trying to get rid of their pets.

After reading your post, I discovered that there are actually 5 teams playing in the 55AAA division in Knoxville that are rated as Major teams in SSUSA. Does ISSA rate teams differently?

Discussion: Cow Town Classic - Shawnee KS

Even though we didn't win at all, I thought the Shawnee tournament this past weekend was a fun time for our first tourney of the year. Tourney was well run and our 55AAA opponents were a bunch of great guys to play against. And it was the best weather we have ever had there other than the overnight rain that messed up the warning tracks for Sunday. Looking forward to next year.
