Was this the first tourney we played in together or was that a July one. Either way Little Rock, ammonia rags and DMSO.

Discussion: home advantage

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.

Running may be stretching the truth, but the no pain part is correct.

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.

Discussion: Trump Stote Softball Concerns

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. This forum is an information sharing venue that for the most part is open and not for anything else.

Discussion: 65 Tournament Player For Vegas in April

Ed Andrews would be a great player to add for just this tourney or for the rest of the year. Considering he is a Major player, a AAA team could really take advantage of his speed.

Discussion: Looking for a team to play for

Thank you for the kind words and I am most excited about the improvement in my quality of life. The hardest thing to imagine is just how much pain you were dealing with until it is not there. Takes a while for the brain to catch up that there is no pain.

Spent 12 years of my softball career in Missouri in the 70's and 80's. Back when your softball season would be over by the 2nd weekend in August if you did not make it out of district.

Discussion: Looking for a team to play for

I am looking for a team.

My rehab went outstanding and I feel confident that I can significantly contribute as a member of a competitive softball team. Anytime you come off major surgery it is only natural that managers would be hesitate to pick up a player not knowing if that player could help them in any significant way.

Words are words and actions are facts. So here are the facts:

Rated major by SSUSA and it is in writing.
Healthier today than any time in the past 5 years. Lost 25 lbs., but when you are short and square, hard to tell.
Stronger today than any time in the past 5 years.
No knee pain, no swelling.

I feel extremely confident that I will produce at a very high level, but only time will tell.

I have not called teams because until I started hitting, I did not want to make commitments I could not keep. Until I was rerated, I was limited in what teams I could play with. The reality is; there are a lot of guys that can play catcher and DH so my options are limited at this late date, even though it is only Feb.

What am I looking for? My primary team should be a 60 team. I only get two weeks of vacation and playing 65 exclusively would use all of those days almost immediately. I would like to play a couple of tournaments with a 65 team as long as it did not conflict with my primary team. I was going to come to the tournament this last weekend, but the weather put a damper on that idea. I am capable of and ready to play in March in Hemet. If a team wants a look see, fair enough.

Vegas is the cut date and I would like to have a team by then. I do not care if the team is based in SoCal, NorCal, NV, or AZ. Playing great softball is the goal.

Bottom-line: I would appreciate it, if you would think there is a team out there that would be a good fit for them and me. Please pass on my contact information.

Thank you and see you on the ball field.

Mike Adair

Discussion: Total Knee Replacement

74 days... or 10 weeks & 4 days... or approx. 2 months

No pain. Very limited swelling. Now building strength to make both legs equal. 3 years of focusing only on good leg decidedly different leg shape. Bike 30 minutes level ten averaging 14 mph. Getting there. For my friends who have the surgery since me. Listen to your therapist and push yourself. I have had unbelievable support from everyone and it is greatly appreciated and lifts me when I may want to slack off. The rain in SoCal is eliminating the drought and requiring me to not get on the field before I should. The pics do not show how could my knee feels. Scar is like a pencil line. No crowning just smooth and no sensitivity. Patience sucks. I wanna hit!!!!!!
