Seriously Bouncy-bounce, have you ever played a 2 hour game in Senior slow pitch softball? Be realistic here!!

Discussion: Do we pay to play by the hour??

Hey guys, just asking for opinions here.

So, I was thinking about this awhile back and here is my question: When a team pays their entry fee for a tournament, do they pay to play by the hour or pay to play by the games? I ask because last time I looked, a game in men's slow pitch softball is a "7 inning game", not a 50, 60, or 70 minute game!

With there being a limit on runs in the first 6 innings I can't see there being any 2 hour games (unless the visiting team starts hitting the crap out of the ball in the 7th/open inning, scores 25 runs and the home team has to hit to win). As you can tell, I have a problem with this time limit thing they place on us as they put our hard earned money in their pockets! Hey, there's that $$$$$ in those who control the game issue again!!

Anyway, just sayin!! Anyone else?

Hey Sparks, seems like you have a minor problem with these "high-tech weapons" we all have the privilege of using! Might I suggest you not put $$$$$ into the pockets of those who control the game and keep swinging your "lower-tech weapon". That way you'll be sticking it to "the Man" and saving yourself a couple hundred bucks!!

By the way, I still have a green Rich Superior (in the wrapper) Power Dome I'll sell for $500 bucks, but for you, $20 bucks!!

Alan, at NO time did I state that you threw in a "Trump" ball or that you guys were using Trump balls...all I said was that the balls your team were using during the first game we played were HOT ! You took my statement the wrong way and for whatever reason got upset over it!

Now, I recall what happened is this: while I was pitching both Posey (our catcher) and I noticed the difference in the balls we were using and the ball I was pitching! Posey called time out, came to me, we showed Tony the ball and he went and talked to the umpire. From that point I was out of the mix!!

The next morning I did, however, notice that both teams were using the same balls! Those are the "facts" as I know it and that is the "truth" as I know it!

Still 3 sides to the story, I will continue to stick to my side. We can continue volleying back and forth on this issue, but why do so!

As Steve Austin says "I'll see you down the road"

I can care less about the Melee, let's get back to the balls!! lol

So, Alan, if you want to know who this is all you have to do is click on my Adictiv6 and my name comes up!!

As for the ball situation I speak of, well, I was pitching at the time so i know what I speak! Those were not balls that Pete gave to each team! You know it, your team knows it, I know it as does my team! You and our coach went back and forth over it! Team 1 Sports changed balls the next morning to the balls every other team was using! You never offered us to use your balls, never offered to buy new balls!! Really, I could care less ! I was just stating that those ball you were using were hot!!

There are three sides to every story, your side, my side and what really happened! I will stick to mine, you stick to yours and as the X-Files says "The truth is out there" !

Anger is one of the signs of guilt, in case you didn't know and it reads like you're upset in your post....I'm gonna let you in on something, Alan.....I don't come home to you, I don't shower with you and I don't fall to sleep in your arms at night sooooo, you being angry or upset towards me means ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to me!

Alan, these balls you are talking about...they wouldn't happen to be those balls Team-1-Sports threw in last year at Pete's tournament, would they? You know, the balls your team didn't buy from Pete and the balls you wouldn't let anyone else use! Cuz, those were good balls! Just wondering!!

The Best pitchers are the Smart pitchers, and the Smart pitchers are the ones who wear the mask!

Omar, it's not the bats, it's the hands around the bat! Take a deep breath and enjoy watching your ball go over the fence and realize that maybe after all these years your swing has improved!!

Discussion: bat rolling

Blah blah blah blah blah!!! 1. Why the heck would anyone want to or need to have their Senior bats rolled or shaved?? 2. how about this for a solution, Have the associations provide 5 marked game bats per team at the start of the tournaments, umpires check them as you come up to bat (teams have to give them back at the end of the tournaments)!! We won't have to spend Hundreds of dollars on bats anymore and everybody is on the same playing level!! I crack myself up sometimes!!

p.s. So, i bought some new tuff shoes for the upcoming season, they were pretty stiff so I had my son put them on and run around the field and up some hills to break them in!! That's not considered cheating is it??

Discussion: New ADStarr ball

So, update on those nice NX3 balls! Mr Sumpter and I hit this morning /afternoon (11am-1pm), nice chilly day with a breeze coming in from centerfield, North Augusta baseball field, 322ft down the lines, 378ft dead center! Dave and I always hit 12-15 feet behind home plate as we don't want to dig up the batter's box! Anyhow, I have to say, these balls FLY!! Sounds good off the bat and feel good in the hand when pitching!! Very very impressed with them! Anyone who has not hit them, try them out. I think you will be as impressed as I! Dave was hitting them between 320-360 foot shots into the wind and his 5-6 hole shots were getting through like missles! Very impressive day for him! The point being, Awesome product you have here, Tattoo!!

Tom, I will have to get your number from Tattoo! I know I have a Facebook account but have never used it! I don't know how and I don't remember my password...sooooo! What days will you be in Augusta or will you only be here on the 6th?

Bruce, how have you been? Hope Thanksgiving was good to you!!
Myrtle Beach...well, we (Combat/Next Level) had to play in the 50 M+ division, lost to Mid-Atlantic (a great team) but, we did win our division! lol!! Tough to loose when you're the only team in your division (55 M+). I ended up MVP so that ended the season for me on the plus side of things! I am already jonesing to play !! Have a Merry Christmas! Hope to see you next year!!

Tattooball,
Sorry i didn't get back with you about hitting with Mr. Marandi! this is the first time i've been back on the msg board! As for hitting, I am always up for taking swings, always!! Don't know if the opportunity to hit with Tom is still an option, if it is, would love to! If not, any other time he down this way let me know and maybe we can workout a time and place it hit!

PS. I no longer play with Adiktiv Sports, and for whatever reason they don't allow you to change your nickname on this msg board, so I guess I will always be "A dik"

Tattoo, glad i could help get the word out on the NX3! It is worth looking to get and use (if only for a BP ball).
I have read a few threads about using this ball or that ball during Vegas or in summer weather! IMHO, this would be a great universal ball for all Senior organizations! Hope to see it in play one day! Good job!!

Hey tattooball, Hitman, thanks for the input! Anyone else?
Tattooball, are you going to try to get all senior softball associations to try out the NX3?

Discussion: New ADStarr ball

Was wondering if anyone has hit the ADStarr NX3 ball yet?
I hit it today, nice cool weather (about 70% outside). Balls were new out of the box!
Made a nice "crack" off the bat, went a long ways, has a nice rough feel to them so you can get a good grip on the ball when throwing it!
Just looking for opinions on it and is this going to be the ball of the future?

Discussion: Tee-shirts or other prizes?

With all the "millions" of t-shirts I've received through my years of softball I've just had them made into quilts for my kids, grand kids and others. They seemed to enjoy them or they hate'em and lie to me about. Either way, the shirts are out of my house to make room for more (if i am lucky enough to win any more)!!

Thanks for all the response to this rant !!

Guys, so, thanks for all the insite....I suppose I was just venting!!
Being just a player and not on the business side of things it's easy for me to overlook all that goes into putting on a tourney!

What about giving back the entry fee to the winning team? Or letting them play in the next tournament without payment?

My problem is .... I love tee-shirts!!
