Discussion: Senior Softball Movie

A movie producer, Rich Dobbs, has been following the NY Statesmen tournaments for the past two years. His goal is to produce a documentary on Senior Softball as seen through the life and characters on the Statesmen. This could be good recognition for all who play the game. He has a one minute trailer on his website\"\", take a look and see if you recognize anyone from NY or Florida teams. Rich is no amateur in the business and is very serious about this project.

Discussion: Super Mjor Softball-The way the game was meant to be played

The NY Statesmen are trying to come out of hibernation and looking to play a limited Major Plus schedule. Based on time and place we would definitely consider such a tournament. Good Luck and keep us posted.

Discussion: Compare the Senior Softball World Tourneys

Don, good topic, I only hope TD's are reading our comments. The SPA has consistently been the best tournament for me, great fields, good balls, fair bats, well run, and they groom the fields after a game. ISSA is the worst, poor bats and balls, grooming only once a day, and poor scheduling, i.e., in a two team bracket our game times were 9AM, 3PM, and 7PM-just plain silly trying to keep teams there an extra day. NSA was good but poor accomodation choices. SSWS and SSWC were OK and LVSSA is always fun, even though we were trounced. Have a great winter. Bob Sr.

Congratulations on your win in DesMoines. You and your team showed real class when the umpire wanted to call a forfeit against our team. When we were 30 seconds late to a rescheduled game you offered to play anyway rather than win by forfeit. Tharaldsons is a credit to Senior Softball and deserve this victory.

Steve, I agree on the balls, they were fine, we didn't seem to have a problem nor did Rekco or Florida against us. The field were not as good as Plano but better than most and they were groomed after a few games. Sorry you're not going to any more tournaments this year. At least Sandy will get a fair shake now not a lot of hard errors. Bob.

BillyMac, there's a player here in Nj local leagues that is just tearing it up and may be able to help you defend your titles if you are looking to add a roster spot. He is mainly at 3b, some SS or P. If interested post your email and I will follow up. Good Luck. Bob Sr.
