Discussion: WELL THEN, WHAT ABOUT 60'S AAA; WHO's THE BEST?

ACTUALLY JB THERE IS A TOURNEY EACH YEAR IN KC AND IN OMAHA AND THIS YEAR ONE WAS IN CHICAGO.....MICHVET... I'M FROM SOUTH FLORIDA AND HAVE PLAYED IN THE HALF CENTURY THERE....SO THERE ARE QUITE A FEW TEAMS IN THE EAST WITH SOME EXCELLENT TOURNEYS....THOMAS' TOURNEY IN DC/MANASAS IS A GOOD ONE ....I WAS JUST SAYING ALL SHUD MAKE A POINT TO ATTEND THE RENO TOURNEY AS I BELIEVE IT'S BETTER THAN ALL THE REST...SCENERY,FIELDS ....COMPETITION ETC... AND A BUNCH OF TEAMS IN ALL DIVISIONS!!!!...I'VE BEEN TRYING TO GET OUR GUYS TO GO EAST AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR BUT DALTON IS THE ONLY ONE SO FAR EXCEPT THE TOC...WILL KEEP TRYING....DOKER

Just my thoughts from the west as most of the above comments are about eastern teams.....ga/ala are very good as well as the heat from so florida...but they don't venture out west except for maybe the phx natls.....the teams that played at rockin reno this year were quite strong....won by the hawaiian team....dallas spurs that md played on did good and our TANEL360 Team out of austin played well....doker...there were 23 teams in the tourney.....THE BEST TOURNAMENT OF THE YEAR ON THE BEST FIELDS IN SOFTBALL....WE NEED MORE TEAMS FROM OVER THERE TO COME TO RENO NEXT YEAR..........IT'S AWESOME IF WE PLAY ON THE SAME FIELDS AGAIN!!!

NORMAL TO ME IS WHAT WE USE MOST OF THE TIME AT OUR TOURNEYS...AS FAR AS I KNOW THIS WAS THE ONLY TOURNEY IN WHICH WE USED THIS 52-275 BALL...AND IT PROVED TO BE NOT UP TO STANDARD IN MY BOOK!!! MY OPINION!!!

Discussion: Hit today a 275 by 52 ball

MY THOUGHTS WERE THAT A MAJOR+ PLAYER KNOWS A LITTLE MORE ABOUT HITTING THE BALL OVER THE FENCE THAN MOST...NOT NECESSARILY KNOWING HOW TO HIT BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE...AND BY THE WAY I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE THAT DID NOT LIKE THE BALL ON OUR TEAM..JUST THE ONLY ONE THAT WRITES ON THIS BLOG BESIDES YOU!!.....I ACTUALLY THOUGHT I HIT THE BALL PRETTY WELL OVER THE WEEKEND ALTHOUGH I HIT SEVERAL BALLS THAT NORMALLY WUD HAVE BEEN TO THE FENCE BUT WERE JUST EASY FLY BALLS WITH THIS BALL!!!!!!!!

DUKE I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU.I'VE BEEN PLAYING THE SSUSA TOURNEYS SINCE I TURNED 50...THAT'S 14 YEARS NOW..ABLE TO PLAY 5GAMES IS THE ONLY WAY TO GO....WE PLAY OUT OF TEXAS AND IF IT WAS JUST A DOUBLE ELIM TOURNEY WE PROBABLY WUD NOT ATTEND AS EACH OF US PUT OUT BETWEEN $700-1000 TO GO!!! AS FAR AS THE FLORIDA TEAMS ARE CONCERNED I'M FROM THE MIAMI/FT LAUD AFEA AND THOSE TEAMS PLAY IN THE FLA HALF CENTURY ONCE A MONTH AND TRAVEL TO DIFFERENT CITIES IN FLORIDA ALREADY TO PLAY A FOUR GAME ROUND ROBIN!!!! THAT'S WHY WE DON'T SEE TOO MANY ON THE WESTERN SIDE OF THE US EXCEPT FOR THE REALLY BIG TOURNEYS!!!...DUKE YOU ARE RIGHT THAT THE EXTRA GAMES GIVE THOSE PLAYERS THAT MAY NOT BE STARTERS A CHANCE TO PLAY....WHICH KEEPS UP TEAM MORALE AND ASSURES THAT YOU HAVE ENOUGH PLAYERS TO TRAVEL WITH...!!! JUST MY THOUGHTS...THE GUYS AND GALS AT SSUSA REALLY DO PAY ATTENTION TO THIS SIGHT AND THEY ARE CONSTANTLY TRYING TO IMPROVE THEIR PRODUCT WHETHER SOME OF YOU AGREE OR NOT...!!!! THE GAME WE PLAY NOW IS AWESOME EVEN WITH THE FEW RULES WE USE FOR THE BETTERMENT OF COMPETITION.....5RUN RULE...HOMER LIMITS...SENIOR BATS.....AS I SAID THESE RULES EVEN THE COMPETITION SOMEWHAT AND SHORTEN THE GAME TIMES...WHICH ALLOW FOR GAMES TO BE SOMEWHAT ON TIME...ESPECIALLY WITH BIG TOURNEYS LIKE RENO AND PHOENIX.....IF THEY ALLOWED OPEN INNINGS ALL THE TIME THE GAMES WUD BE 2-3 INNINGS ESPECIALLY IN THE UPPER DIVISIONS...AS THEY WERE IN THE 70'S....JERRYS AND HOWARDS USED TO PLAY WITH SCORES 60-55...AS AN UMPIRE IN THOSE DAYS THOSE GAMES REALLY SUCKED TO CALL!!! AND 2 HOURS LONG....WE HAVE A FEW DISSENTERS HERE ON THIS SIGHT COMPLAINING ABOUT OUR GAME TODAY BUT THEY ARE DEFINITELY THE MINORITY OF US THAT PLAY THE TOURNEYS REGULARLY....!!! DOKER
