Discussion: Re-Rated without playing a tournament

I hear you, but there is a reason it is the top of the mountain. Only a few reach it and fewer still stay there.

I have been there and I am working hard trying to get back there.

We often play teams 5 years younger or up in class. It is a simple function of age (fewer teams) and economics (regional/local tournaments).

Lace em up and let's play.

Discussion: Re-Rated without playing a tournament

East Coast / West Coast Bias. Always has been and always will be. West Coast always think East Coast teams load up and play ISSA and SPA because their roster will not be reviewed by SSUSA. East Coast teams thinks WC teams whine to Sac about their roster.

Truth is SSUSA is never on the right side because everybody for the most part complains about someone else. IMO we all try to build our rosters to complete and win. Regardless of the formula used there will be exceptions to the rule. Maybe this or that team had a great weekend because everyone of their players played out of their mind and or their competition had lost players and were not on the same level as before.

Bottom-line we as players and as teams have the choice to participate or not. From personal experience, first ask if there is a remedy, exercise such and then if you are unhappy with the result, make an informed decision as to your action.

Discussion: Best Batting Glove for Pratice

I want to stress my practice gloves are different from my game gloves only in the fact, I use a new pair for games. BlueHawk Nitrile, only trouble is finding them in extra large.

Discussion: Best Batting Glove for Pratice

Nitrile work gloves $5 per pair. Water resistant, I never need grip or pine tar. May not look as cool, but then again cool went out in my 30ies. Now it is about performance and price.

Discussion: Foul Tip

Count no balls no strikes. Ball is tipped directly back and the catcher catches the ball cleanly. Absolutely does not go higher than the batters head, straight back. Call?

Discussion: Vegas 50's Fields

It is my understanding that a division will not play at the same park it played at in the previous years' tournament. If you played at BLD in the Southwest Championships in 2015 you will most likely play at a different complex for the same tournament in 2016.

Discussion: 2016 melee

Xavier, I don't know Lee personally, but I did not read his post the same way you did. Hitting indoors usually means you hit harder balls (IMO), anybody that hits the ball square and does not cut the ball will break more bats(webbie and Kenard Horsely), big super strong M+(not really a slam but observation). I have no dog in this flight and have not swung the Adidas, yet.

Big and used to be strong.

Discussion: Jim Davis - NCI

Yesterday at 4PM Jim Davis Sponsor of NCI Softball Club passed away. Mr. Davis was a complex man to say the least, hard guy to play ball for, but no one could ever doubt his desire to win. A loving Father, Husband and always a Marine. I will miss the old fart.

Bobby - sweet spot closer to the tape is good with me. I think that is where I have been hitting lately.

Louisville Blue Flame Pitching machine $139 Perfect strike every time.
Bownet screen $140
Evil BP Balls $4 each

Any kid would rather do this than baby sit. I tried having my wife do it, but I had to pay for a manicure, pedicure, saloon visit, and dinner, cheaper to rent a kid.

Discussion: Question?

SSUSA please correct me if I am incorrect: Age 54 player plays on a 50 M+ team, turns 55. He can know play 50 major, but if at anytime plays for a 50M+ team, he will be rated as M+ in the 55 and 50. M+ players continue to maintain M+ rating in their current age groups. Exceptions are made on a case by case basis for medical/geographic/???.

Ed is dealing with some personal health issues that require his full attention. I can't speak of his contact with the OC DA, but he is in need of prayer concerning his more pressing issue.
