Discussion: UTRIP -senior ?

I have the Mach1 26oz and I love it, but it swings heavy. So, point being if you are an older guy who is just getting back into playing again and don't quite have the strength and swing speed you once did, I think the Alan Tanner which is only a half ounce end load is the way to go for a Worth. Great bat!

I made the mistake after a few years off buying the same weight bat I last swung and found I did not have the strength to get the same bat speed with a 30oz bat, so I dropped down in weight and it paid off.

This is my 2 cents so take it for what it is worth, just some random guys opinion.

Well, suprise suprise, Proton came out with another excuse that of course blamed some one else for further delays. If you ordered one, you may have it in time for next years tournaments!

Dave, can you offer any insight into why were were bumped up? We did have success in 2 of the 3 tournaments we entered this year but we got run out of St George pretty bad. Not disputing the move, just more out of curiosity.

Thanks in advance.

Dbax, that is the first thing I thought of as well...Haha! That being said, I am just trying to find out if we did get moved up or not.

Discussion: Rating Changes?

Did SSUSA just make rating changes? I looked at my teams rating and it moved from AAA to Major after the southwest championships. I know we won but hell, we are only 3 tournaments into playing together as a team!

Also, if we did get moved, if I am on a 55-major team can I also play on a 50-AAA team without counting as one of their major players?

Thanks

Dbax, I think we have just been spoiled as the last couple tournaments the results have been updating each night. Now we are expecting that to be the new norm!

Weird that some people can see the results and other cannot. In the 55's it appears to partially be completed but does not include the Saturday and Sunday results. Cleared my cache and even browsing history to see if that might be the issue but still get the same data. It is obviously completed because some people can see the full results while others like me cannot. Anyone have any ideas on things that may be preventing some of us from seeing the most recent updated results?

Thanks

Well, when I am wrong I will admit it. the Hollywood fields are 1000 times better than a couple years back. The infields were recently completed and are, for Vegas fields, in very good shape. No more uneven surfaces or broken glass mixed in with the dirt, only saw one bad hop all weekend! The covered bleachers are nice, hopefully we will get to use them next time through which I expect to happen as we move away from COVID requirements here in Nevada. The best part was no longer having a mile roundtrip(a slight exaggeration) to use the restroom.

Umpiring was solid all weekend long, actually I would say it was more than solid in our games as there were no real calls that there was any dispute on in any of our games. Good job SSUSA on this weekend up at Hollywood for the 55AAA!

FOFO, have you been by the Hollywood fields? I have not had any luck finding anyone who has played up there since they were redone to get their opinion of their condition.

Has been hit or miss for me the last week, always loads but at times it is slower than usual. But never had it not load!

So maybe that is the difference between those that returned quickly and my taking the 9 months before hitting the field again. I came back and was able to run full speed without pain(until I over did it and blew out my other knee!)

The couple things this thread and in talking with friends and teammates who have gone through it says to me is, everyone is different in their ability to recover and rehab has to be done and done correctly and diligently!

Good luck with your surgery and recovery!

The warm springs fields are what they have always been, good but not great infields and occasional gopher holes in the outfield that pop up every night. But we hit out there each weekend and for Las Vegas the fields are in good shape, just whomever plays out there first each day have the outfields cover any new gopher holes and watch those hops at SS on field 8!

DavidGee24 Cheyenne and Hollywood are both real bad. A little more glass in the infield over at Cheyenne than Hollywood though. I would rather not play at either of those fields. I think the fields should be rotated between divisions, last time this tourney was actually played in Vegas I was in the 50's and we had to play over there, and this year the 50-AAA guys are back over there again.
