Dbax, Yuma is a horrible prospect for me in that there is no easy way to get there for me, it is a much longer drive than Hemet. It is nothing to do with the city or the facilities!

While going to Yuma is a horrible prospect, I would still rather to there and play than not play at all! Here is hoping that we play in Yuma!!!

Well, good for you! You are obviously a very special human being. That being said, It is a good thing we have a 1st amendment huh? Because I have a ton of nicknames for California, that one was one of the nice ones. I am not going to get dragged into a political or war of words on this site, that is not was it is for, you have taken my one little comment and went way to far with your being offended. I am not here to argue politics or TDS.

Yuma and Cathedral City have been added as locations for the Southern California State Championships. So hopefully this means that if we cannot play in Commiefornia that the entire tournament will just move to Arizona, which is already allowing tournament play!

Cancelled and with California not opening up to group activities anytime soon, who knows when we will be back on the fields!

Discussion: States "Re-opening" plans

WE have not stopped hitting since the stay at home orders were put in place, we have just had to find other places to hit, and have had to deal with the police a few times. We will continue to hit regardless of what our state says, not letting them dictate what we do with our lives!

Discussion: Reno 60's tournament

Problem is that SSUSA cannot make the call until the state decides what it is going to do. I heard on the news this morning that the Nevada Governor is going to talk today or tomorrow about entering Phase II, which could happen as soon as Memorial Day weekend. Also, a lot of hotels/Casinos are planning for opening Memorial Day weekend or the following weekend. All good news! I would count on planning at this point in time, the chances of Reno happening are probably better than the chances of any of the June California events happening!

Discussion: Which bat to buy?

I have a 26 ounce and I prefer some flex in my bats(but not alot). I am going to keep swinging it in BP and hopefully when I get to about 400 swings it picks up in performance. Then again, I am comparing its performance to a 2019 Adidas Melee 12", which in my opinion is the best bat out there!

OZ, as a born and raised former Michigander, I hope to God you guys vote that dictator out of power next time she is up for reelection! She is giving my home state a bad name, and worse, destroying that states recovery over the last few years!!

That being said, I am still struggling with those that want these tournaments cancelled because they are afraid or unwilling to attend. That is YOUR personal choice, please allow the rest of us to make that same personal choice and decide whether we want to attend or not! Despite all the efforts of the democratic governors in this country, we are still free to make our own decisions! I will attend if we play, if that means bringing a chair then that is what I will do!

I had great initial results with the Easton Empire Ron Parnell, but it has quickly fallen out of favor with me. It is very stiff, and though I now have about 250 swings on it, it has not gotten any hotter. Overall for the money, I would have rather spent a few more bucks and went with the Suncoast 12" Melee!

OZ, Rick - Benjamin Franklin once said: "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety." I agree wholeheartedly with Mr Franklin! Too many people have too easily given up their personal liberties under the guise of this virus! The government now knows how easily they can control the sheeple by scaring them, well, I refuse to give up any of my God give, Constitution given rights!

I did not realize Demarini was already on their 2021 model releases, I just htought the 2021 mention above was a typo. Makes sense if they are last years model, but still very cheap considering it was $249 when it came out.

Anyone know what the issue is with the 2020 Demarini Larry Carter? It is on Direct Sports for $99.....That is a huge red flag for me!

I cannot agree with Brucesky more!! If you think it is too soon, then do not come. If you are not comfortable with the precautions in place, do not come. One thing I have learned from watching this comment board is that regardless of what SSUSA does, there are going to be a million people whining and complaining about how poorly they thought it out, how stupid it is, etc...

This is America, you have the freedom to make the choice to attend or not attend, let those that want to make the decision to attend, make that choice!

Upside to this is, it is no longer taking place on a holiday weekend so room rates on Airbnb are way down!

Look at the Tournament schedule, the 60's through 85's has been rescheduled for June 2nd - 4th. All other age groups and women is in the process and TBD.

I thi nk it is easy to say "move it back a month or so", and let's assume the fields are available and easy to secure, with all of the other scheduling gymnastics that happened earlier, when could they schedule this? I think the only option is to have it early June is cancel.
