Discussion: Is This Great or oH Oh Yeah It's Great

I love softball. I have played this game since I was 19 years old. So 45 years later....what a rush I read this board and enjoy the back and forth and even the whining. Because we are still contributing. The young guys are still full of testosterone and whatever, so maybe they can't appreciate the gist of it all.

I mean seriously, how great is it to compete against guys that you played/hated/envied 25-30 years ago and now they are showing up on the same field in 2000 whatever+++++.

Here is my deal.. I have limited ability. I hit pretty good and when healthy I can field a position other than catcher or DH. I did not say play, but I can knock down a ball and throw you out...When healthy...let me emphasize there are 3rd baseman and then there are guys that play 3rd. Big difference. For me personally, I LOVE catching. I think if you are a true catcher you can affect the game. IMO.

Point of this post. I love the guys I have played with and respect them more than they know. Appreciate the managers/sponsors to the nth degree. I respect the teams I have played against more than I will ever tell them and lastly give serious thank you's to the organization that provide us a venue to participate in.

So 2016 is in the books..........2017 is yet to be determined.....bowed up..locked and loaded.....after rehab that is....thank you brothers....what a ride...........

Discussion: Hall of Fame Points

Depending on which HOF you are referring to:National Senior Softball HOF or the SSUSA HOF.

The MVP medals awarded by SSUSA at the World's are team MVPs not tournament MVPs. Every team gets one and I think those MVP recipients should be awarded points toward the SSHOF.

The NSSHOF rules were voted own by multiple associations. IMO since the LVVSA Worlds is no longer, those are NSSHOF points have gone by the wayside and have not been replaced by the system. I think SSUSA should request that the Spring Championships held in Las Vegas be allowed to award NSSHOF points to replace the lost opportunity for players to receive points.

I believe there are 5 opportunities on the East of the Mississippi, SPA, ISA, ISSA, NASCS, and ASA; West of Mississippi LVSSA, SSUSA, and Huntsman. There is no longer to receive points for LVSSA only the combined LVSSA/SSUSA Worlds.

In reality, some great teams with players will never be seen by the majority of the softball community. M+, M, and AAA players have the opportunity to earn HOF points. To be inclusive as possible, the NSSHOF should evaluate how it can better serve the overall softball community with the points opportunities.

Awarding SSUSA two opportunities to provide NSSHOF points could be viewed as a competitive advantage over other organizations with regards to tournament participation and therefore a marketing advantage. That could be true, but with the loss of the LVSSA points, I believe the overall community and especially the teams West of the MS would not benefit inordinately, but rather regain the opportunity lost.

No on SPA and SSUSA being the same. Go to each web site for clarification.

Whatever points you think you may have; documentation is the key.

Keep detailed records and have the back up to support your position.

Discussion: 2016 LVSSA/SSUSA WORLD MASTERS CHAMPIONSHIPS

IMO Opinion, the LVSSA/SSUSA did a fantastic job in running this tournament. The hundreds of games (15/16 hundred)over multiple weeks and venues with outstanding umpires and organization at the fields. I know there will be some detractors, but I can tell from my personal experience in playing this game for 45 years and playing in over a 100 World Tournaments this organization is a class act and sets the bar for all others.

Scores for 50 through 65 can be found at mikemacenko.com; senior scoreboard.

From Mike Macenko:
once you get to the page for the Senior Scoreboard you have to click on the blue tab in the middle of the page and register and log in. The account is free for 30 days. Once you log in you will see a a number 1. Click on Current Tournaments. Follow the steps. 1, 2, 3, 4. It should take you where you want to be. In step 3 you will have your choice of age group you are looking for. I hope this helps.

Also if you have scores please email scores to bigcat@designwebsystems.com. This will help with getting them inserted. Thanks again. I have someone who is installing all of he data they we get.

if you select scores/current tournaments/then select LVSSA/SSUSA Mens you will get an option to select any age and division.
