Discussion: RUMOR CONTROL - AUGUST TOP GUN TOURNAMENT FULL

Congratulations to the Top Gun Senior Softball Association for running a fun tournament this past weekend. I heard a rumor that I would like to dispell. The runmor is that the August Top Gun Tournament is full. To the contrary, the Top Gun Tournament scheduled for August 24 - 26 in beautiful San Clemente, CA has lots of openings and would like to invite you and your team to play. Last year the tournament attracted 32 teams from Arizona, Nevada, and California. Check the senior softball website for the tournament details. The tournament will be played at Richard Steed Park, a fabulous four field complex with 300' fences. Hope to see you on the ballfield.

Discussion: Very Disappointed in Rock N Reno

Mother Nature has not been very kind to senior softball this year. The Top Gun Championship in February was cancelled after one day; Spring Worlds in St. George lost a day because of rain in March; Southwest Championship in Laughlin was a wind tunnel in April; and the Rock-n-Reno snow in May was quit a challenge. Being from SoCal I have become spoiled by the great weather that we have had for many seasons. This is a very unusual year for weather. My hats off to Terry, Fran, David, and all of the tournament directors for trying their best to complete all of these tournaments. Rain, sleat, or even snow will not keep me from playing senior softball, it just might be more challenging.

Discussion: A ?

TOMAR77...I appreciate your comments but I feel compelled to clarify some of your comments. I'm in a position to make these corrections as the current President of the Top Gun Senior Softball Association.

1) The Top Gun Senior Softball Association was created to give senior softball players an avenue to play in a competitive softball environment.

2) The Top Gun Championships this week is an SSUSA sanctioned tournament and NON of the proceeds are going to our association. THIS IS NOT A MONEY MAKING TOURNAMENT FOR TOP GUN.

3) This tournament was created through a collective partnership with SSUSA; Sportsplex USA; San Diego Sports Council; and the Top Gun Senior Softball Association.

4) Through this tournament, Top Gun Senior Softball is hoping to bring more attention to the fun, comaraderie, and passion that senior softball provides for all of us. As Don (Tate22) stated it's all about great competition on excellent fields in good weather.

5) Top Gun Senior Softball is honored to have our Association name attached to this major tournament. Being associated with SSUSA; Sportsplex; and the San Diego Sports Council to bring a quality event to San Diego is first and foremost in my opinion. The ring design is the decision of SSUSA not The Top Gun Senior Softball Association.

6) Top Gun Senior Softball has a long standing history dating back to 1992 when our 60's team first stepped out on the field in a sanctioned Senior Softball Tournament. Since then we have grown to eleven teams (8 mens and 3 womens) ranging in age groups 50+ - 75+. I'm proud of our history and reputation in the senior softball community.

7) We will be hosting three SSUSA Top Gun qualifying tournaments throughout the year at a cost of $325 per tournament and I hope your team will join us.

Lastly, I would like to thank the teams from Arizona, Nevada, Texas, New York for coming to San Diego to compete and supporting senior softball.

Discussion: Want to play! # 2

Great comments by everyone. Two areas that I feel are important is how a player plays on Championship Sunday. Many players play well leading up to the final day and collapse on Sunday for whatever reason. The other item that I keep track of is the batting average for a player in a two-out situation. Teams that score a lot of runs after two outs are usually the successful ones. Confidence under pressure is a key to winning. As for me, I manage the team and play outfield.

Discussion: Playing to win or keep everyone happy?

Great topic. Winning solves everything. You get no complaints in batting order, number of batters, defensive positions, etc. when your team is winning. Players don't complain about the money they spend as long as the team keeps winning. As soon as you lose a tournament or multiple tournaments than the second guessing and finger pointing starts. When you lose, all managers are now placed in the situation you just discribed. Best rule, communicate with your players and let them know what is expected.

Discussion: Combine Major & Major+?

I see a lot of different opinions but the division that comes in to play is the Major division. Since many of the Major teams are actually very good AAA teams and or weak Major+ teams, what would be the criteria for separating the division. My list in order would be Homeruns, major tournament victories, run differential,and calibur of players. Before we combine divisions, we need a set criteria agreed by a majority of the managers.

Discussion: position

Great question. Both positions are equally important in the role they play. However, games are won or lost based on the outfield. A fatigued outfielder will play next to the fence, not charge the ball, and have nothing on their throws. This creates an extra base situation for the offensive team and good teams will take advantage of it. A fatigued outfielder will also have a hard time hitting as their legs are dead and they are now swinging only with their arms. A tired infielder will not give up extra base hits, so theoretically it will take three hits to score. A tired outfield will give up a run with two hits (excluding homeruns). A fast outfield will win a lot of games. However a well timed doubleplay will break the back of any team and change momentum.

Have a Happy Holiday

Discussion: BEST PITCH TO THROW

Webbie25...thank you for the comment about a low outside pitch being hit back up the middle. My experiense has been that if you throw a low outside strike with two strikes there is a high percentage of the balls that are hit back up the middle. I know pitchers that when they throw a certain pitch, the probability of that pitch being hit back up the middle is very high. The pitch is usually thrown when a pitcher wants a doubleplay grounder. Thank you for your comments.

Discussion: BEST PITCH TO THROW

I have never seen this question asked and I'm not sure pitchers will share their secrets, but here goes. What is the best pitch you throw to get batters out? I find a lot of pitchers throw low, flat, and outside. From the hitters out there, where do you hit a low, flat, outside pitch? Just wondering?
