Discussion: Rotator Cuff Surgery or not?

Rainmans was probably 57 or 58 at the time of the surgery. I can attest that you did not want to run on his arm before and those that ran on him during the rehab don't try it now. And for a guy with a strong arm, he hits the cut off a majority of the time.

Discussion: VERBAL INTERFERENCE

Only if involves politics or religion.

Seriously though, if a catcher utters anything that sounds like high, low, illegal, ball, strike, fair, foul, yelling as the ball approaches the plate then absolutely.

At this point in my career, I ask the catcher and umpire to let me know when it is a good pitch to swing at. If you have ever saw one of my bats you know that to be true.

Randy,

I agree we should close this tread, but leave it open for view. When an individual reflects on his position and adjusts their view, then it should be fully documented.

Your kind words to Dave/Doug should not be removed without the benefit of others seeing your final thoughts on this matter. We ALL should be judged/viewed in the entirety and not as a snapshot in time.

Sorry my error - Granted it was a 3 run homer and subsequent runners on base. (No homer, 4 singles in a row with the 4th batter being out). This does not change any of my foundation statements.

Discussion: DARK CLOUDS IN 65 MAJOR PLUS

Step away from the message board for one minute and chaos ensues. I do not know team1st and he made some very interesting points, but let's add to the discussion. All questions to be responded to by "likely or unlikely".

It appears we are trying to make a legal argument. Since this occur in Nevada. Nevada employs a doctrine known as “contributory negligence.” This means that liability will be spread proportionately according to fault. ... Generally speaking, if you were more than 51% negligent in the accident, you may not be eligible to recover damages. Therefore, fault with DR for having a non sanctioned ball in the dugout, fault with DR for putting in a non sanctioned ball, fault with Umpire for not reviewing ball prior to use, fault with Pitcher for not recognizing this ball was different from the ones used in the previous 4 games, fault with catcher for same, to a limited degree fault lies with DD for not checking opposing teams ball prior to use.

In any action there must be damages. Here is the rub. Granted it was a 3 run homer and subsequent runners on base. There is no clear path the use of the Rock was the final determining factor in the score of the game. It can be argued it was a momentum shifting event. Likely, but not conclusive.

Conclusion, a reasonable individual would have to conclude that DR was so fixated on winning that he deliberately cheated jeopardizing income, reputation and ultimate suspension. Ultimately we each will decide what we believe regarding DR's intent or lack there of and individually it will affect how we may feel about DR personally.

From a business standpoint, I expect SSUSA will take a hard look at actions (not necessarily intent) and consequences. Emphasize training, responsibility of umpires, TDs, and personal team responsibility.

On a side note. Sure the Rock travels better than a Stote in Hot weather. It was Reno, 5000 feet and major plus players, either ball flies and we all know it. Does not change the use issue, only do not muddle the discussion with ball comparisons.

My humble opinion and no dog in this fight.

Mike Adair

Total left hip replacement 2007. Playing ball 90 days later. Never a problem except 10 years later Total right knee replacement, probably because I favored it a little. Who knows always been a lard butt so something has to give. He can always get in touch with me. softball4b@aol.com

Staff, I disagree, anytime your team is limited to a lesser degree, HRs and or runs per inning) it is a defacto equalizer. Looks like a duck, walks like a duck, probably a duck.

As far as the HRs go....the wind was a factor in how many balls went out of the park. It would not have mattered if we had used the Stote simply because the temps were relatively mild and usually only one field had the wind blowing in.

Discussion: Arroyo to Big League Dreams Friday Nite

Seriously, I think some people would whine about free World Series tickets because they did not include airfare or they did not get to throw out the first pitch.

Pick a park and someone will complain as opposed to "Play Ball".

I am looking forward to playing softball against the best teams in the country, hell considering my health history, I am blessed to be playing.

Discussion: Knee replacement

TKR in Nov. Played at softball for 3 years after my knee totally blew up. Cortisone shots because I had work commitments that I wanted to honor. Great surgeon and great hospital.

I would not call what I do running, but then again I was never fast just not slow, before knee blowup. Afterwards a glacier was faster.

Bottom-line, I have no pain and everyday I am regaining more mobility. Hitting and running straight line are not issues. What I call athletic movements are a work in progress. My doc does not lecture me about softball, he tells me what to expect and expects me to make smart decisions. Am I a 100%, compared to what, am I as good as my competition, I want to think so, but words are words and actions are facts.

What fact I am absolutely certain of is. Softball aside, this is a quality of life decision that I made with great forethought and investigation. My results have far exceeded my expectations and I worry more about out living my money than I do about pain.

Discussion: A new product for Senior Softball Players

As most of you are aware Webbie is somewhat prone to hyperbole and microphone hogging. One night at Karaoke the DJ started a list for the next night right after the first song because 3A had signed up to sing the entire play list.

We were playing in Hemet and were having a pretty good inning and had probably hit 9 batters or so. 2 runners on and 2 out, we then realized the next hitter was no way to be found. So out declared and inning over. He was not there when we went out on defense so we had to put our lard butt catcher in right field. He(I) did not make any errors and went we back into hit. We just about to get to the spot in the batting order with the disappearing player when we see him strolling in. Needless to say he just picked up his bat and went to hit. His only comment, when you gotta go, you gotta go. For the record it was not Webbie.

Okay maybe I am missing something, but them again I have a public education from Arkansas. DD did not say SSUSA would not take complaints, he indicated what format and venue complaints would be noted. Seems clear and concise to me. I can post all I want to on this message board, but if I really want to affect change I contact the governing body.
