Discussion: Hip Replacemant Results

Had my right done in late 2012 and the left in July of 14. Have played without pain since but definitely a drop in power and line drives. I believe my mechanics need re-work to compensate for the prosthetics. Also,I only play tourneys, 12+ per year, no leagues and very limited bp. I think if you want to still have game you need to put time into it. I recommend having surgery done by a surgeon from joint replacement center who does them all the time. And, go for the lesser invasive approach, anterior (side), 4" scar, less bleeding, no restrictions on bending/twisting. Both of mine were done the Kevin Bozic, who performed Bo Jackson's last fix in his late 30's. Good Luck! You won't regret it.

Discussion: How to Play More Innings

Our senior club plays 2 innings at a time. 3 outs, clear the bags, 3 more outs and change sides. A lot lot less time to and from the dugout. It regularly results in more innings played under a time constraint.

Discussion: hip replacement

Had my right replaced in Dec. of 2012. BP in 6 weeks and played my first tourney after 3 months. Played 14 events in 2013 and ran for myself. Even helped in the outfield on occasion. Left hip started bothering me after LV in October. Went through the surgeon's protocol, injection/pt, to no avail. Had it replaced late July. Now 7 weeks post op and it's gradually improving. Dealing with sciatic nerve pain down the leg, but it's much better than pre-op. May not get back to ball this year, but planning on getting back to it full time in spring 2015. I'm 66 and highly recommend going through the process. It's much easier than the knee replacement. Good Luck!

Discussion: Huntsman World Senior Games

Took our 55AAA team to Huntsman in 2007. Got eliminated by a major team that hit 5 hr's in the bottom of the last inning. Did finish 4th and had to convince the directors to award us a bronze because the team that won was major+. Took the same team back in 2008 and 2009 and was knocked out earlier by sandbagging teams that were hitting the ball out to the opposite field. Discussed putting the one up hr rule in effect to level the field. They wouldn't listen. Even emailed them several times without a response. Finally sent them an email stating that we would not be attending again, and we haven't.

Discussion: 60 AAA,worlds

Watched the BC Marauders double dip a very good Indiana Legend team. Six games on the last day in 95 plus degree heat, using very few courtesy runners. BC is very well organized and were there on a mission. I learned a few things in watching them. Great guys and players.
