Topic: Players looking to join a team
Discussion: ballantine

Hi Bruce,
There are two 50+ travel teams in the area, one out of Wilmington/Newark is Rhino Linings and the other out of Dover is First National Bank of Wyoming(DE). The contact for Rhino Linings is Rich Thomas at jairusent@msn.com. If you want to contact the FNB guys send me an email at chris_wurm@agilent.com and I can forward your email to one of the FNB players. I don't have the coaches contact info.

There is a "Senior" league that plays in Smyrna in the summer, but I also don't know who the main contact is for that. Maybe someone one the board can help?

Also, there was a post by boomer23 recently. This info appplies to you as well.

Hi HJ,

Here's some info from Softball Fans:

Small sample size, but looks like it's balanced, hot, and maybe not so durable?

Discussion: New HR rules

Hi James,
We played with the new HR rule in Fort Myers this past fall and our team (50 AAA) did not like it. While it's great that you don't penalize the batter for hitting one out of the park after the limit, we felt that it would actually lead to more sandbagging, where power hitting players are added to lower division teams for big tournaments. Some games seemed as if there was a merry-go-round going on out there (i.e. when we were in the field). That's our opinion for what that's worth. That said, it won't stop us from playing with whatever rules they come up with; we just like to play.

Ok, thanks. That's really too bad as I thought that one might have promise. A couple of the guys on my team have the older Worth Senior Toxics and the ball seems to fly off of them pretty well.

Thanks MrBill, I was wondering about this one. Now, has anyone tried the DeMarini "The One". Inquiring minds want to know.

Discussion: Any early reviews of 2012 model year bats?

I just received my new Direct Sports catalog and see that there are two new Senior bats listed, Demarini "The One" and Worth 454. Anyone (perhaps some of you warm weather guys) tried either of these yet? I'd love to hear your reviews. Thanks.

Discussion: Foul out to catcher

Stretch - just be aware that this rule is not the same across all associations. I don't know why I know this, but I am pretty sure that in some associations (not sure which ones, maybe USSSA?) a foul tip does not have to go above the batter's head to be caught for an out. FWIW.

Discussion: Chest Protector

Our shortstop wears EvoShield:

I believe that it forms to your body. He likes it because, like you, he took a shot off the chest and wanted some more protection. Not cheap, but he says it is comfortable and it works.

Discussion: Congratulations East Coast Teams

Hey Shark, now that the results are posted, besides the Hitmen you can add Omega, Hamel's, Lew's Crew and the Golden Girls to that list. (Not sure where "East Coast" ends because there are a few more teams that might be included like Jim and Joe's, Steel Dawgs and Triangle Masters, etc.) Congrats to all.

Discussion: Good Thermo-type Underwear

This year I bought an Under Armour "Cold Gear" shirt to wear under my jersey. It works great and is comfortable so I highly recommend it. Note sure abot 30 degrees, but it certainly keeps me warm at 45-50 degrees. I know they have leggings too but I wear long pants so I'm Ok there.

Discussion: Wouldn't it be nice

They would only be posting scores. Is that promoting the association? Isn't there some gigantic thread about Dalton, GA (which I believe is SPA related) on here already? We, as players, play in several different associations, and it would be nice if there was one common place to see results and information about ALL senior softball. To be perfectly honest, we don't care about the association as much as we care about the venue where we play. This is the best message board and it's where I go to get most of my info (and entertainment!) about senior ball. Can't we all just get along?

Discussion: Dumb question...

Why is there a 3% surcharge if you pay with a Visa or Mastercard? It would seem to me that this would be more efficient than paper forms and checks in the mail. Perhaps SSUSA could set up a PAYPAL account and automate payments? Just wondering...

Discussion: Most Unusual, outlandish, Funny, etc. Softball story

Back in my 20's my team was playing a league game at a complex where there were 2 fields side by side with a walkway in between. A ball gets hit to our shortstop who wings a throw over our first baseman's head so far that it sails and hits a gentleman, square in the head, leaning on a fence on the third base side of the OTHER field watching that game. He turns around ready to fight whoever just hit him! We, of course apologize to him and he decides that he will move behind the other field's backstop to get out of harms way. Not 2 or 3 plays later a single gets hit to me in left field and a runner is trying to score from second. I charge the ball and uncork a throw to the plate that sails completely over our backstop, and you guessed it, hits this same guy right square in the back. Our entire team couldn't help but fall down laughing. The gentleman turned to us and said "I'm out of here; I can see that it's not my day!" and immediately left the ballpark.

Can someone elaborate on the sliding at first and at the second home plate rule change, if there was one?

Discussion: Why isn't my current registration good?

Thanks Rip. A beer? - we are staying where you guys usually stay at the Fairfield. Glad to see you guys are finally sobering up.

Duke - wouldn't it be great if they had a credit card machine present to swipe your card and a photo booth set up to get your head shot, just like they do for a lot of wedding receptions these days, LOL!

TexasT - it affects about half our team, anyone that has a card that expires at the end of this year. It all depends how many years you signed up for. And yes, they are going to allow players to play on their current cards.
