Discussion: Getting released from a team you don't want to play for any longer

There is good rationale for both sides of this debate. There's always several sides to a story -- one side, the other side, and the truth. As was stated, this topic should be brought up at the rules committee for an exchange of thoughts/ideas to reach a decision on how to proceed (the devil is in the details).

As it is in most instances, every situation varies and brings its own unique circumstances. If existing rules are changed/modified or a new rule(s) are created do deal with this situation, there should be clear and concise criterion that defines each step of the process. For example, if the player/manager are unable to reach and amicable agreement within a reasonable timeframe (i.e., as defined by the process), a representative from Senior Softball would act as an arbitrator and make the final determination (e.g., the last resort, having all the facts, accomplishing additional fact finding...). Each situation would be considered on a case by case basis.

Discussion: Rotator Cuff Surgery

I experienced the same damage to my throwing arm as "missouridave" described and my full recovery took about the same time (1.5 years). The advice you're getting appears to be from those who have first hand experiences (damage, recovery, PT, exercises…) and I agree with there assessments. I was fortunate to have a former pitcher as a PT and he gave me seven pages of exercises to redevelop my throwing ability. I throw the ball as good if not better than I did before the injury.

The most important advice: DO NOT RUSH THE RECOVERY!

Discussion: Rotator surgery

I severed my rotor cuff on my throwing arm. It required arthroscopic rotator cuff surgery which required four anchors, repair of the torn labrum cartilage, and removal of bone spurs -- 3 hours of surgery. I attended all of the therapy sessions and continued the exercises along with light weight training. One of my therapist was a baseball picture and he gave me throwing exercises that were a slow progression to increase accuracy and velocity. I was able to play approximately 6 months later but was cautious, somewhat apprehensive, and there was some pain and soreness so I took it easy. I was able to reach full throwing ability in about 18 months without soreness or concern about re-injuring my shoulder. Individual result vary.

Discussion: Veterans Day 11/11/14

While only one day of the year is dedicated solely to honoring our veterans, Americans must never forget the sacrifices that many of our fellow countrymen have made to defend our country and protect our freedoms. I cannot thank each and everyone of you enough for your contributions and sacrifices.

Discussion: classification

Section 14.1, B-3: "A Major team roster shall not have more than three players with a team affiliation rating history during the two previous tournament seasons greater than Major."

A simpler way to state it: You can't have more that 3 Major-Plus players

Discussion: All the hate on DBO with senior bats...how about this?

Maybe we should eliminate the pitcher and hit off a tee. Or, maybe we could have virtual indoor softball simulators so we can play against any team, at any location, at anytime of the year and nobody gets hurt.

Discussion: Why Not Have A Players Committee Of Real Players To Over See The Rules

The last survey (2013) was on adopting 1-1 Count which wasn't accepted. There should be more surveys to get the input from the players. As with all methods of data collection, surveys also come with a few drawbacks (i.e., not reaching everyone).

Sorry, Sparky!

It’s been extremely difficult following this post. The way some of the individuals of our age group/maturity responding are exhibiting adolescent attitudes and displaying antisocial behaviors are implacable and petty.

Discussion: Please send you thoughts and prayers... for the RUDY FLORES FAMILY...

I was shocked when I received the sad news of Rudy's passing on Friday from the Wongs who are playing at the same tournament in Mesquite. They said he had been complaining about heartburn similar to James Washington when he passed on the softball field back in 2009 (I was present and it was very disturbing and sobering).

Rudy was a great teammate, a competitive player, a wonderful sense of humor and a very positive attitude. Even when someone was down or upset, he would be able to put a smile back on their face.

You'll be sorely missed my friend!

Steve
