Discussion: Colin Kaepernick

Spin it how you want but who goes to any event player or fan and purposely sits during the national anthem? The other day Colin is wearing socks at practice with a pig wearing a police hat. Let me ask this, if he is at home at night and hears a couple of guys trying to break in that have guns, who's he going to call ?

As for which country do you have to stand for the national anthem, I'd guess Cuba also, wasn't that Colin wearing a Fidel shirt the other day ?

To most 9er fans, Colin has become a distraction that is way overpaid and could divide the locker room. I wouldn't be surprised to see the 9rs cut him later today and eat the 14 mil he is do this year.

Discussion: Dudley 2.0

Alan, which of the 3 bats were swinging? Let us know after more testing, which bat you prefer, the original ones or the Dudley 2's.

Also if you tried the Melee 2, which bat do you like more between the 2. I'm in the market for a bat and I'm torn between the Melee 2 EL and the 13 " Dudley. Any feedback you have wold be much appreciated as always.

Thanks, Tony

Discussion: Colin Kaepernick

So true L. Martin. The media keeps this story in the forefront. It currently dominates the sports news here, why......because they say controversy and negative sells. I don't know anyone who wants to hear anymore on the this story. Wait til the 9rs game on Thursday against the Chargers, every camera will be on Colin during the national anthem.

Discussion: Colin Kaepernick

I think in Colin's mind he thinks he's trying to help and bring more attention to the issue but is he ? There has to be many other avenues he could choose rather than the one he has chosen. It seems to be disrespectful to everyone who has put on a uniform and helped protect our country.

I don't think he is a POS either, I think he's just not very bright. He's shown that on the field. His passer rating has gone down almost 10 points a year the last 3 years. He's totally regressed as a qb because he can't process information quick enough. The 9rs have had some great qbs in the past ( Brodie, Tittle, Young and of course Montana ), Colin will never be mentioned in the same sentence as any of those guys. The guy no doubt has all the physical skills to be great, it's his head that gets in the way of him being a good qb. This has gotten way to much air time in the bay area. A year from now we will be saying " Colin who ".

Discussion: Little League World Series

I enjoy watching the games as well Dbax. Agreed on the calls, the strike zone seems huge at times. What gets me more is the strike zone in the majors. How is it some umpires have a low strike zone and some give the high strike while others expand the strike zone on the corners. My question is if these guys are the best at their profession, why don't they call balls and strikes as it is written in the rule book ?

Discussion: SSUSA Staff: Shaved Bats

Redwood City rec league tried providing bats about 10 years ago. It was summer league and they used different fields and at each field they supplied the same 3 bats, a 26 Oz ( don't recall which bat this was ) a 27 Oz Freak 98 and a 28 Oz Easton Synergy. You could use only these bats. This didn't last even to half the season due to all of the bats that were cracking. We ended up going back to using our own bats. I know this ended up costing the city thousands in replacement bats.

Discussion: SSUSA Staff: Shaved Bats

Shaved bats used by grown men over 50 ? I would have to agree with Benji4 on this. I find it hard to believe that there is an issue with this happening in senior softball, maybe I'm being naive but these bats are already so hot and not to mention they don't last as it is. To have a bat Shaved, how many swings could you get out of bat ? For what, to get an extra 10-20 feet. I would hope the penalty for using a " dirty bat " would be very stiff !I thought this was only an issue with the young guys.......

Discussion: Broken bat - coincidence or legit reason?

SOB, it's not your grip. There has been quite a few bats from various companies that have had issues with the knob coming off. If you have a receipt for the bat, you can try and get a replacement for it. Otherwise you can epoxy it with 2 part marine epoxy.

Discussion: Senior bats vs. 52/300 ball

I'd have to agree with Oz. Dirty bats have been a problem before the 52/300 ball have been the ball of choice by Rec leagues. The reason they went to the 52/300 ball was for player safety. A shaved bat and a 44/375 ball in the hands of a 20-30 year old can be downright dangerous.

Discussion: Wondering about your team name; especially the unusual ones.

Mulewhipper, one of your boys, Hoffman played a few years with us. I remember rushing back from a NCSSA tourney to catch our game and had a Ultra II sticking out of the bag and he was asking about it. I told him in another year he would be able to use it and at that time he says, " I'm not playing in that ". He had no idea the competitiveness that exists in senior softball. You can't get him off the field now.

Discussion: Wondering about your team name; especially the unusual ones.

We played on a Sunday ASA Rec league for almost 20 years on a team called " Sultans of Swat ". Our coach grew up in New York before moving to Calif. Needless to say he was a huge Yankee fan. The team stopped playing only a few years ago as guys were hitting 50 and started playing senior ball and we were having problems fielding a team on Sunday afternoons.

Discussion: Not HAPPY with Bats Unlimited!

Just goes to show you there are always two sides to a story. Upon reading Bat Caves post, how can you not side with him. Fed Ex has said they delivered the package, even describing the house and the car in the driveway. I learned a lesson here. I never have asked to have a signature needed for delivery as we haven't had a problem YET but I think I will from here on out, just to protect both parties. I have also ordered from Bats Unlimited in the past and never had a problem.

hope you guys can both walk away somewhat satisfied as this seems like a no win situation for someone.

Discussion: SSUSA survey

I'm with you on that one Gary. I used to state my income at least half of what it is due to a concern of getting my info Sold and then getting bombarded with sales calls and more credit card apps in the mail. Now, I leave that part blank. It's no one's business what your income is , the same can be said for race or religion.

Discussion: BullHead City

400 foot fences? That's a great way to run the outfielders into the ground. I don't think there is many teams at any age who would want to play on fields this size. Any balls that make it thru the infield will be doubles. The difference of playing on 320 fields versus 300 are big enough . If your trying to elimanate homers, why not dumb down the bats. Making the fields bigger doesn't make much sense. You might want to re-think that idea. Imo.

Discussion: Not HAPPY with Bats Unlimited!

Mike, you are correct, this is on Bats Unlimited. They need to file a claim and get it to Fed Ex .it makes no sense for them not to do so. It would be wise to tell the shipper that a signature is required for the package and for it not to be left on the porch as there has been a rash of thefts of packages from homes throughout the country. I'd put another phone call into Bats Unlimited and ask to speak to a manager. If that goes nowhere then I'd call your credit card company and dispute the charges. Good luck, hopefully B. U. steps up and does the right thing.

Discussion: Do you use senior bats in non tournament games/leagues?

In Redwood City we can use ASA bats only in senior night league where it is open for all age groups 50 and over. The 75 and older men and the few women that play can use senior bats. They just started using a screen this last year. We use a 1-1 count and a 52-300 ball.

Discussion: Pitcher safety screens.

Omar, we also play in NCSSA, we average 14 tourneys a year. One of the contributing factors to the amount of teams not growing IMO is each year at every level ( 50, 55, 60 etc ) there are a few teams that disbands. The top guys always lands on another team but what happens to the rest who cannot find a team to hook up with. We're probably losing as many as we gain.

As far as the bats go, I would have to disagree with your claim that we are losing players because the bats are too hot. I have not heard of one player who has used them and said he doesn't want to play anymore. I think if they got rid of the bats that we use today. We would lose more players than we would gain IMO.
