Mike Macenko may have the answer. There is a link on his website ( mikemacenko.com ) (cut and paste) for Senior Scoreboard. The intent is to post scores for significant local, regional, national, and world tournaments throughout the country and across multiple associations.

The current focus is the SSUSA World's being held in Vegas, some 40's and women's games have been posted and will be updated as they come in.

There are some Men's 40's and Women scores available now.

Softball in Vegas, do you know how hard it is to work manager meetings, batting practice, socializing and games around shows and Ethel M. Chocolates!

For some reason my wife is not interested in diving up early so I can get in an early Thursday morning BP.

Her comment, I have driven to LV by myself before, see you later.

Somehow I do not think that is the tone I want to set to start off my weekend.

Happy wife, higher batting average, at least that is what she tells me and she is like the internet it is got to be true.

Ed can run. run. and run some more. Of course he is running because he is hitting. There are rulers about adding players to the World's Roster, but Ed would be a good pick up.

Try going the other direction. Use a magic marker and black out the underneath bill of your cap. You will be amazed at how much glare is removed.

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Why are there rules?

Seriously, you think either of those programs apply. Is the individual desiring to remain silent in fear of retribution, loss of job, or personal injury? Even those programs have guidelines in place regarding the reporting of an incident. What those programs do not allow is allegations without specifics. If it Rick then call him out.

I do not have first hand knowledge of the events that occurred at the tournament in question.

For me personally, I would have handled it differently.

First, I would have lodged a formal written complaint with the director of the tournament.

Second, I would have lodged a formal written complaint with the authority responsible for sanctioning said tournament. I would have referenced the potential liability for failure to enforce rules that are in place for uniformity and safety.

If in those instances, if I did not receive a response I was comfortable with, I would have then:

Not play in a tournament with the same director, not play in a tournament sanctioned by that governing body or pursue a more legal approach.

Just for the record, I do not think any 30 or 40 year old should be swinging senior bats. I certainly do not think underage players should be playing on in an older age group. 30>40>50>60. There is a reason there is age banding. In premise I agree with Hitemdeep, in practice, presentation is everything.

Discussion: Top Gun tournament

The scores from these games will be posted later this week. I will post a link that you can access.

The tournament this weekend was outstanding, Donnie did a good job. The weather was great, the umpiring was Top Notch and the games themselves were fiercely competitive. A lot of the teams were finalizing rosters in preparation of Worlds which gave the games a different feel this late in the season.

Whether I agree with the premise or not. If I want to be taken seriously, I usually look a person in the eye and talk to them. It means it has significance to me and I am willing to put my reputation on the line as being the author of the statement. But that is just me.

Update on Traffic. Friday night till 11AM Saturday they are closing traffic on the freeway at Ave Pico to one lane. Going to be a nightmare for those with mid morning games.

I am working on having the daily scores posted via a website. I will keep you informed.

FYI - there is a major soccer tournament this weekend in San Clemente/San Juan area and weather is going to be NICE! Traffic will be at a standstill after 10AM and I doubt there will be any places to hit. Don't care, can't wait to play!!!!!!!!!!!

DD you a funny guy!!!

It is only a discussion if you provide specifics, other than that, it is just gossip.

If you are going to call a team out, just do it by name. This tip toeing around is like saying we could have won if coach had not played his favorites.

Too much discussion in an open forum with no ability to affect change.

Call George and get resolved.
