Discussion: Partial vs Full knee replacement

Three surgeons have told me that I'm on-the-bubble and could go with a partial or total knee to relieve my knee pain. I'm 80 years old, still play with a courtesy runner, and play infield with limited range. I'd like to hear from players (or surgeons) who have had experience with either surgery.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Carrying bat

Strange but true. A slow-running singles-only batter hit a ground ball that went through the shallow outfield. The 1st base coach yelled "Go. Go." With a surprised look our batter-runner slogged toward 2nd base. He looked toward 3rd with a big smile which disappeared when he saw the 3rd base coach waving him to 3rd base.

With a look that said, "You gotta be kiddin') he moseyed toward 3rd. He arrived well before the ball and hooted with joy. Then the ump, who was 3 feet from 3rd base, yelled "You're out!"

"What? Why?" we all asked. He said, "Look at your hand." Our runner looked and saw that he had carried his bat all the way to 3rd. "You had to drop the bat before you reached 1st base." (This was USSSA and that was their rule.)

It didn't end there. The next time this player batted he hit another ground ball through the infield but not through the outfield. As the batter-runner approached 1st base, the 1st base coach held up a sign, "Drop the bat!"

Discussion: Problem with Title bar

What I call the Title bar is the horizontal list of items starting with "Home" and ending with "Links."

When I hit the drop-down menu under "Tournaments" I get a choice of three items including "Rules" But I cannot choose any of the other three items because - I think - they interfere with the links on the second line, "International" and "Links." Fortunately I can still get to the all important link of "Tournaments.

Does anyone else have this problem or have a workaround?

Discussion: Looking for an 80s team for Vegas and 2018

I played with a AAA 80s team that disbanded and I'd like to find another team for Vegas this September and the 2018 season. I have loads of experience and have played at all levels from AA to Major+ for the last 25+ years. I'm best in the infield (not third base) but can play in the outfield when needed. I'm 78 this year and will travel anywhere. Reply to this posting or send me an email at fsisavic@hotmail.com.

Best/Worst/Only Slow pitch softball commercial film: "Beer League" (2006). Awful caricatures of the beer drinking bunch beating the arrogant top rated league team.

Discussion: 2015 Las Vegas World Championship

2014 was 6-game guarantees, I believe. From the website:

"Men's 65+ and Older: Six games minimum scheduled, with four-game Round Robin into Double Elimination brackets. (Session #2 runs four days)"

I may be wrong, but It looks like the 65+ and older teams will be getting fewer games for the same fee. Am I misinformed?

Discussion: What to do with trophies, uniforms, tee-shirts?

I'm spring cleaning in January and have many softball tee-shirts, old uniforms for entire teams, and a stash of trophies. My loving, sensitive, understanding wife said, "They go or you go!"

I thought about her alternatives for a bit too long and my partner-for-life walked out of our stuffed garage. So I'm looking for ideas on what to do with the stuff. Please do not suggest anything starting with, "Shove them .... "
