Discussion: SPA v SSUSA

Both do a good job.

IIMO SSUSA does a better job rating teams.

SSUSA website is great. SPA website needs some work.

SPA hits a better ball. The SSUSA ball, the Trump Stote, in an absolute sock in high temperatures/high humidity.

SPA usually provides a score keeper and a working score board. SSUSA normally does not provide these services.

Both usually play at nice complexes and have decent umps.

Two outstanding organizations that we are fortunate to have.

Discussion: Dudley Lighning 12 inch senior bat. Webbing


Congrats on your win in Vegas. I heard you were hitting it well.

I have 2 of the 12" Dudleys, one with about 500 cuts and one with approx 100. No webbing on either. Patty Mac has one with around 800 swings on it and it's still going strong. Definitely the most durable senior bat I've swung.

Ozzie (twintower)

In your post about "power hitters in the senior game" and this post you speak in the third person which does come off as self promoting. As for PEDs Jose will always be linked to steroids and justifiably so. People on this board can be brutal at times and very hurtful. Some of those same people will come up to you and Jose and act like they're your best friends, go figure.

That said, the idea about about a charity event showcasing todays senior power hitters is a great idea. Maybe Bogie, the swing makeover guy, could set something up at the spring training in Florida and include it in the SM series.

You and Jose's talents will be admired and criticized by many, it goes with the territory. Praise is hard to come by and jealously is an ugly thing.

Welcome to senior softball, the Canseco brothers will be a great addition.

Discussion: God Sports 50 Major +

GSC is a M+ team, surely they have plenty power, with the DBO Jose may have to hit it down more than swing away.

Chemistry often beats talent. How will Jose fit in.

Can the other teams just play thier game and not let Jose impact how they do thier work? If so his presence will be cool but shouldn't prevent the best team from winning.

Very nice message. We should all be proud to be Americans and recognize the cost of freedom isn't measured by how many ships or jets we have it's the number of heroes willing to die for what we stand for.

Discussion: Rehoboth/Bryant reunion


I know Rehobeth had a long run with many National Championships. In 1996 we were in the losers bracket in the ASA Natls and had to play the winner of Rehoboth/Lighthouse. We were fortunate to get by Rehobeth, something we didn't do very often, and then double dip the defending Natl Champs from Houston. One of my favorite softball memories.

Discussion: Rehoboth/Bryant reunion


Hope you guys have a great reunion. I remember the good old days with Rehoboth, Lighthouse, Choto, 1st Baptist from Houston and many more really good teams battling it out. Our team, Olive Baptist, disbanded after winning the ASA Nationals in 1996. I think that's about the time Rehoboth slowed down. Really miss those days.

Anytime we lose a member of the senior softball fraternity it's a sad day.

I agree with you , let you play the AAA Nationals and then move you up if warranted. You hate being penalized for playing well. It seems like some teams never get moved up, one in our area in particular but I won't mention thier name since they're my friends. Hopefully you guys can get reclassified to AAA.

Good luck and hope to see you soon

Huffman is a very good 65AAA team. Can they compete in the Major division, probably so. The unfortunate thing is they should be able to play AAA until they win a true National tournament. Winning a few regional tournaments can be misleading. That said, Huffman has dominated a very good group of 65AAA teams. The rating system benefits some teams and unjustly penalizes others. In this particular case Huffman has to feel the rating system has failed them. Hopefully Huffman excepts this bump and continues to play some great softball.

Elite 60's will be there. Columbus LX is not playing and I haven't heard about TAG, Randy Smith or Louisiana team.

Looking forward to seeing everyone and hoping for good weather.

Discussion: Patty Mac

To the friends of Patty Mac. Pat is having some health problems and while he is expecting a full recovery right now he is feeling pretty rough. Keep Pat in your prayers and if you'd like you can give him a call at 850.324.0314

I'm sure hearing from his softball brothers will help in his getting well.

Discussion: Hitting

BP, if Bruce says it I'm listening. He's a great hitter.

Know and trust your swing
Pitch selection
Be aggressive but under control

Hit your pitch and good things will happen

Discussion: Pickle Juice

Dill pickle juice is the ticket. Often at tournaments they have a big jar of pickles. Asked for a cup of ice filled with the pickle juice. Really works.

Discussion: thinking of retireing from tourney ball

Chances are it you quit playing ball you will pick up something else to do like golf, fishing, hunting, etc. All hobbies cost and take time. If you have lost your love for the game or feel the negatives outweigh the positives maybe you should hang it up. Good luck with your decision,

Discussion: Tee-shirts or other prizes?

Hitman (Jim), totally agree, the awards left a lot to be desired. Congratulations on you guys win and your MVP. I heard you were 24 for 25 or something like that. Keep it up and we'll see in Maryville or Marietta.

Discussion: SPA drops the ball.

I don't think the SPA dropped the ball. With the cost to rent fields, pay umpires, purchase awards and other costs if they don't get enough teams they are forced to cancel. It stinks that priceline wouldn't refund your money and you didn't get to play but I can't see how you blame the organization.

Unfortunately the website is not working. They have placed the 65 Majors teams with the 60 AAA.
You guys play the Hitmen Friday at 9:30. You play at 11:00 and 2:00 but I don't know who.
