Topic: Tournaments
Discussion: Rocky Mountain Fields

My team and I had a bit different experience. Thought the facility and fields were superb and it was a very well run tournament by the SSUSA staff. While I never played outfield, never saw the wierd hops, but then only played or observed at the C complex. Having 12 fields, I know they even moved up some of the championship games to accommodate both teams. First time playing in Denver area, and hope that regardless of the fields, this area can be host to more SSUSA venues. The new neighborhood that one of the host hotels, Fairfield inn was at, had a ton of new dining and shopping...super place for a tourney. It was nice having so many soccer fields for bp at the Aurora Sports Complex and we liked the longer fences that kept defense at a premium.

Discussion: Warm up bat swing

I find the same thing with a host of injuries at 63. The first 10 swings are downright painful to be sure and not good swings. I drilled a hole in a softball and added 20 feet of 3/8 high tensile poly cord...I made a bigger hole, attached to a washer then used silicon to seal both ends.. When I grab a Gtee that folds and fits in my bag, I can take swings outside the dugout if its clear and take enough tee swings to get loose. The ball stops after 20 feet and can be used in places with no one in case it breaks which I have not experienced yet. We also put a hole in a ball and slide over a rope that has bunges on both ends..hook between angle fences and some swings can be taken. Seems like I never get loose with practice swings unless I am hitting something solid. Those balls on the end of fiberglass rods work well too. Total control balls I like alot too...but your right ...shoulders, hips all tighten up and it take some real swings to get the joints loose.

Discussion: Rotator Cuff Surgery or not?

I tore my right shoulder infra and supra 10 years ago..full thickness tear thru, but laterally thru the muscle, not where is was cut off. I opted because of my occupation and rehab questions, not to have it done. It was very weak for 6 months, but eventually healed in about a year. I did not lose much overall strength, but recently at 63 I tore the same ones again. There is scar tissue that made it more likely to tear. It affects my swing greatly now with it being hard without heavy medication to swing effectively and continues to be sore. Rest and rehab I am told will allow it to heal, but again that is not really an option for me due to work, so I am trying to work and play with it. I don't play much defense except pitch and catch, which allow me to throw underhand, and I don't see myself having the surgery, because I don't think I have the downtime to do it..so I hope to finish the season, and let it rest and rehab 3 months after worlds. I think there are better options to have surgery, rehab properly and not keep tearing it, but sometimes its hard to do what is a complicated surgery and very rigorous rehab...but not always an option for everyone. jmo

Discussion: Arm Extension Key to creating a Powerful Bathead Snap SwingMakeover #55

ha, see you called us out. When you don't know what your talking about you make up alot of fancy terms and hope someone is as confused as you. We have had and do have a some more shows coming on placement...but most of our lessons are hitters who can't make solid contact 2 of 4 times, and we try to find various ways to reach more hitters with mechanics. BTW I might have shorter arms than you.ha

Discussion: Arm Extension Key to creating a Powerful Bathead Snap SwingMakeover #55

Bret, using pro models, explains how the extension of the arms, the top arm in particular, is key for creating a cutting oversnap. This maximizes power but also creates an environment for consistent striking of any part of the ball.

Discussion: Brian Wegman converts radical linear stride into explosive rotation SwingMakeover #56

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWqMIYXc0IA&t=3s

A strong linear movement ahead and down, yet he is still able to convert to a tight rotation due to the wind and unwind of the hips. One reason why Wegman is one of the best ever and a lesson for us who try to emulate.

Discussion: Lower back problems

The Mri as soon as possible is really the key if the chiro, massage, shots etc. does not help. I tried them all for almost 3 years, little improvement, until I gave in and had an mri. I have stenosis or arthritic narrowing of the entire spine, but the lower lumbar was squeezed down to 25%. I waited so long on mri, I have some permanent nerve damage but after surgery where they took out bone, and other tissue to open the hole, its a big improvement but will never be like new as aging continues. Surgery was no biggie. I would also advise not to read all the forums on back issues on the internet. I found them 90% negative and from people who had bad experiences and were desperately searching for answers or comfort from others..those stories will scare you, most surgeries are successful, but no guarantee. Research the physician as fully as you can and get the best one you can. I sympathize...I've had a ton of other joint, tendon problems and they don't compare to back problems. Good advice on this thread from the others. If you don't rehab, lose weight or change lifestyle, success might be shortlived. jmo
