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. If you really want to be heard: SSUSA National Office (916) 326-5303 / (916) 326-5304 - fax 9823 Old Winery Place, Ste. 12, Sacramento, CA. 95827 https://seniorsoftball.com/?page=6 Terry Hennessy, CEO Send e-mail to Terry Fran Dowell, Executive Director Send e-mail to Fran George Moreno, National Office Manager Send e-mail to George Giovanni Crotti, Marketing / Executive Assistant / Publications Send e-mail to Giovanni Stephanie Hopkins, Executive Assistant / Clubs & Leagues Send e-mail to Stephanie Ross McCulligan Executive Assistant / Umpires and Bookkeeping Send e-mail to Ross Tiffany Peck, Receptionist / Player Registration Send e-mail to Tiffany Anthony Ramos, Player Registration Send e-mail to Anthony

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: knee pain

I had knee drained and cortisone shot every 90 days then TKR in November. I put it off only because of work commitments now that I have had it done, my quality of life has improved significantly.

Thank you to those who contacted me.

I will be playing in the 60 division with the Southwest Bandits from AZ. I forward to being back on the field and playing softball.

See you soon.

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.

Softball4b@aol.com

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!!!!!!

Discussion: Total Knee Replacement

Almost 9 weeks in. 0 degree on passive straight leg, 30 minutes bike, 7.3 miles at level 9.

Bat in my hand and took a batting stance, slight tightness in the knee, no pain.

I am pacing like a caged animal wanting to hit.

Two more weeks then tee work.

Discussion: Looking For Some Feedback

If you have the luxury of a big roster:

5 Outfielders, somebody sits every inning. Nobody wants to, but later in the day or tourney, if makes a difference.

If you are going to hit among first 3 batters next inning sit the inning before.

Pitchers never run, legs go, consistency goes, bat goes.

If you are sitting, you are coaching 1st because you are running first.

3rd base coach is always same 2-3 guys. consistency in runners knowing how you coach.

Organized BP. I know some people thought I was nuts, but I would break up BP hitting into 3-4 guys groups. One pitcher pitches to those guys then hits with next group. Once you figured out who hit the same, you could put them together.

Communicate to the point they think you are nuts. Better more information than a bunch of guys calling you on where we meeting, what are we wearing, are we taking BP.

Just my thoughts.

Discussion: Taping of bat handle.

I guess I have been in violation for years. I suppose I will have to quit writing on the bat, "this is the sweet spot, hit here" or the the one on the handle "guaranteed out if you hit it here".

Discussion: Total Knee Replacement

8 weeks in. 0 degree on passive straight leg, 110 degrees on passive range of motion. Gym today, 30 minutes bike, 6.9 miles at level 8. Getting stronger everyday, put a bat in my hand and took a batting stance. Could feel just how much further I have to go before I can drive off the back leg. Knowing how much stronger I am today than anytime in the past 3 years, I can say for a fact that I am blessed to have been able to play before this surgery. I know how far I have come in 8 weeks and if I make the type of progress I feel confident that I can play in March and be effective. To what extent only time will tell.

On a more personal note, regardless of whether I will ever be a quality ball player again, my quality of life has made all of this worth it. For those considering surgery investigate, educate and then don't hesitate.

Ending 2016 with my spirit fulfilled, my mind right, my body healing and happy. The LORD has blessed me far more than I deserve, but certainly no less than his promise to all. Itching to hit, but still 4 weeks away. I have lost 15 lbs, but then again proverbial drop in the bucket. Honey is there any fudge left????

Very possible that might be true, but it does not make what I said not true.
Stote ball is a good ball when the weather conditions are not adverse.

Stote is a sock in temperatures above 90 and especially in Sacramento. The teams I have played on see their HR production drop 75-80 percent when we use the Stote ball in hot/humid weather. It works well in temperate weather, but not during the dog days of August.
