Discussion: Rating???

mck71, thanks for adding to the discussion. As for the NJ Hitmen, if what you say is true, why did SSUSA post on Jan. 3, 2018 that the NJ Hitmen were Major. There would have been no need to re post the same rating if it was not some discussion in Sacramento. Maybe it was a mistake.
Dbax, always good to hear from you. Hope to see you in league in 2 or 3 weeks. If not sooner
Andy, thanks for the greeting and your thoughts. Thinking of playing 65 with Results out of Vegas. I hear, per BH, you have added some players that just might put you in the same boat as the 3 teams I have mention. Be very careful. Anyway, good luck and hope to run into Used2be this season.
P.S. Andy, I do not think that either the Ancients or Enviro Vac are major plus teams. But, what do I know.

Discussion: Rating???

I am totally confused. Being a 65 player I will post this only concerning the 65 ratings.
1. Why was the Old As request to be downgraded to major denied? Most of the team had quit before the Vegas worlds. 2 players quitting and running to Timberworks. The manager still put a team in the tourney, picking up 4 or 5 players who had not played all year with the Old As, and were not playing in the tournament just to fill a team. Which was not easy. While the rag tag bunch did win a few games. They were not a major plus caliber team. So the thanks for supporting SSUSA and putting a team in their tournament. You are punished and have to play Major plus even though the teams roster was and would be totally different than than the roster of the 2017 season.
2. Now I hear Timberworks has put together such a monster team. They have to give 5 runs when playing other major plus rated teams in their division. I'm confused.
3. In the 2017 Vegas worlds [ I am going by memory because SSUSA still has not posted the scores from the tournament] in the 65 major division. The top 3 teams were 1 New Jersey Hitmen 2 Enviro Vac 3 Arizona Ancients. The new ratings come out and the Ancients are the only team moved to major plus. The top 2 teams remain major. I sorry but I am CONFUSED.

Discussion: DARK CLOUDS IN 65 MAJOR PLUS

After reading my friends post on illegal balls used in Reno, I knew he would received nothing but venom. If he asked me I would have advise him not to post this issue. But that being said, I would guess that all of those that responded to this post are major plus and or home run hitters that would like nothing more than the use of rock balls be part of all of SSUSA tournaments.
Sure there is history between DD and Timberworks. But that is another story. But,I would like to say that "major plus" and home run hitters should not dominate this post and senior softball. But we all know the huge egos of most of the major plus players. Here are my thoughts, but from a AAA player, this was the 3rd day of the tournament. Not the 1st day, The stote ball was provided by SSUSA . It was not 1 ball but 3 that was given to the umpire. You can claim ignorance if you want. But it makes me wonder, does this manager provide, maybe, shaved bats to the team? Just wondering out loud.

Discussion: Its Unanimous - The Best Senior Softball Players Are in California and Florida

This rule needs to be reconsider. Talking to a player today and the word going around is that this rule was put in to benefit the owner of SSUSA and his teams W.E. Ruth out of Washington. I do not see the logic unless someone can explain it " like if I was a 5 yr old ". Alot of teams bordering California will be hurt if not totally destroyed.
Florida teams for the most part will not leave Florida for major tournaments because of the Florida Half Century League. That leaves alot of players looking for teams outside the state for the opportunity to play in the worlds, nationals etc.
Someone help me out here!!!!

Discussion: New home run rules

Listen, we all know that our senior bats are being alter. I was shock to what extend it is going on. I have had many players come out and tell me what they do to their bats. It is going on in AA all the way to Major plus. Now these are the hottest bats made and we are still doctoring them.
Now, I understand the rush from hitting HRs, but when I see 150-175 lb men hitting ball 350 plus. And the big boys hitting some 450' plus. Something is not right.
We did it to ourselves. So, I am in favor of giving the new rules a try. I do not think it will stop the doctor bats. But, at least the field will be leveled, somewhat.
The true homerun hitters will be hurt. {HI Bogie and Joe.} But something needs to done. Just my thoughts. Bob

Discussion: thoughts on FLA NAPLES

Florida fields as a whole are mediocre. The grass in the outfields are usually manicure and fairly nice. But, the batter boxes are a joke. Every field the boxes, especially for right handers are never fill in and tamped. They just fill in the craters with loose dirt or sand. I rarely seen that problem out West. I do not know who to bitch too, so I will do it here. Playing the 55 AAAs we also had problems with the sun for the 8AM games. Bob

Discussion: No one really cares about player safety!

Florida Half Century has just put in place a rule, that a screen will be used if the sun is blinding the pitcher. I think they are going to committee to disgust the situations that would arise by having a screen on the field. Bob

Congratulations Sonn. Great job to you and Hosey, Corey and the rest of the team!! I was told that no team east of the Mississippi could win the nationals against the big, bad west coast teams. I have 2 questions, first, how did your sister team do, the Rhinos and the 2nd question is NOW WHAT???? Bob Farmer

Discussion: Bring back the grey combat !!!!!!!!

Because of Walk, Stoney and my friends here in Florida, I think that I might have spoken to soon. But all I heard was {hot out of the wrapper} and in 25 swings the bat was ready to go, etc. All someone had to say was it breaks in like the Grays. Thanks for the knowledge. Bob

Discussion: Bring back the grey combat !!!!!!!!

Heard all these great comments on the new Macenko Combat Gear. Could not wait to get my hands on one. When I first saw the bat it look like the Virus Combat Gear painted yellow. I never liked the virus gear and I knew of no one that did. Now, I am not a big home run hitter, but this new combat has alot to be desire. People I hit with say it hits like the virus, in fact one person said that it is a virus painted yellow. We hit over 100 swings with 375 44 core balls and it does not come close to the U II or the gray combat. Now, maybe it has to be broken in more, but it goes into my bag as a practice bat only.
I am down to 1 gray combat and was looking for a backup. Now, I have purchase a Ultra 2 as my backup till I can find someone willing to sale a end loaded gray.
Just one mans opinon, I could be wrong. BRING BACK THE GRAYS!!!!!!! Bob
