Topic: Tournaments
Discussion: Brickyard-Nancy Allen

Those tournaments that Ho has mentioned are SPA tournaments and I would not recommend. Several of times, I have seen them change your team classification in the middle of a tournament. Once they have your money, there is nothing you can do. SSUSA does listen to your concerns and allows, if at all possible, the opportunity and ability for all senior players to be able to play and have fun. Some organizations just "hears" you but with my experience, SSUSA will "listen". Tournament fees are expensive so make it worth while..

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Re-classification

Thank you for the immediate responses from the SSUSA staff. We are regrouping as a team after 8-13 years of not playing and I have been very pleased with the SSUSA staff for their guidance as well as the other softball organization from South. What I like is that they LISTEN with open ears to help and not just hear. As a player coach, it has made it so much easier for myself. But the problem we have had is with the other organization (lets just call them the Sooners). I was wondering if there are other teams that have problems with reclassifying players. That group is keeping each player's classification from as much as eight years ago! I may be nave, but I feel that there is a huge difference with a player's physical ability from 60-65 than from 66-70. That Sooner group has us jumping through hoops to reclassify and then telling us it will take up to 2 months for changes. Here we are, without stepping on the field, being canceled out of tournaments. We are a 65 AAA team and some of the players we have rated as Major are lucky to be alive and able to walk. Are there teams still out there that still play for blood and guts and the glory of winning a trophy or a Chinese watch? I think that the organizations should listen more to personal issues and from the age groups of 65 and older, why not place them on the honesty of the coach/manager and just eliminate the Major division; or am I off limits on this. If God has Blessed us to still be able to play the game that we have so dearly loved since our childhood days, so be it and let us play. Again, if I am nave, I still don't think that is this age group, many teams will "sandbag"..correct me if I am wrong. Thank you for allowing me to vent..my BP is a little lower.Interested in comments... Let's play ball, be safe and have fun. Thank you George, Fran, Dave, Terry and staff...God Bless.

Can anyone tell me how an individual can reclassify his status to a lower ability status with SSUSA (ex: Major to AAA ) thank you.

Discussion: Best Wishes to Terry Hennessy

this is something that can NOT be overlooked....60% yes SIXTY PERCENT of all men 65 and over had some type of prostate issue and/or cancer...I am surprised that the organizations (SSUSA..SPA..and ISSA)do not jump on the information express..This issue and tests should be encouraged at every tournament and every piece of literature that goes out to the players...There should be support groups for your leagues as it can be a personal and disturbing issues to some...But if caught in time, it is not an issue as opposed to waiting later. Set up a date to check your prostate...

Discussion: Ultimate Bat Bag - Obie

The last time we purchased bat bags and roller bags, it was through the owner, Obie with Ultimate Bat Bags. I believe he played with Scrap Iron out of Colorado. I understand it is under new ownership. Can someone help me out here with the new owners and/or offer suggestions for a good, durable roller bag? And if anyone knows Obie and Bunny, give them my best....larry (ohio) thanks

for a few (Major) players to compliment their winning ways. Have won several Worlds and Nationals in the past and looking forward to the promising upcoming year(s)...prefer above average skills in fielding and hitting with some consistency in long ball. WE offer fellowship and family fun in our winning ways...However, there is no room on this team for egos and politics! If interested, please inquire: funinsun333@yahoo.com thank you

Discussion: Original gray Miken Ultra (without center rod insert) VS. current MIken 2 piece endloads

Not to possibly beat a dead issue, here but here is my question - If the original gray ultra was only "hot" because of the harder compression ball, then are these new bats being offered, the same composition material as the original, but only under a different name?? Or, again, which is hotter, the original or the newer ones...thank you.

Discussion: Original gray Miken Ultra (without center rod insert) VS. current MIken 2 piece endloads

thank you for your responses....again, do you think it was the bat or the higher compressed ball we used at that time...would like to see a comparison with the same balls being used, eh?

Discussion: Original gray Miken Ultra (without center rod insert) VS. current MIken 2 piece endloads

So you guys are possibly saying that the composition of the original Miken and the new ones may pretty much the same and it may just be with the lower compression of the ball we now use? IF that be the case, then why the hype on every new bat that enters the market!! Durability maybe?

Discussion: Original gray Miken Ultra (without center rod insert) VS. current MIken 2 piece endloads

What started as a casual discussion among teammates but ended heated was over these two types of bats....Issue in question- it was stated that the very first and original Miken gray Ultra (without the inserted rod) is NOT as "Hot" for distance as the more current Miken 2 piece end-loads. Those of you who can remember those bats, what do you think?? thank you....

Discussion: Dudley Lightning.....

Is the Dudley lightning EL approved for ALL senior softball organizations? (SSUSA...SPA....ISSA) I have never really given it much thought, both past and current, but does the organization's name have to appear on the bat for it to be used in their tournaments and their sanctioned leagues?....The lightning, just specifies SSUSA...thank you...Larry.
