Discussion: Vegas Bat Display

Alan
One final last comment and we can put this to rest as i believe the other posters are astute enough to see what is going on here. Your statements regarding "This message board is a free service" and "Nobody is obligated to anything beyond that". is accurate. However you cannot deny that you have profited via sales by mixing in your product evaluations along with your business name, phone number, locations and more. You can spin it anyway you wish....This simply has led to more sales for YOU. Maybe this will help to clarify.... Other licensed and authorized small business individuals do not have the option to sell or advertise on this board as they play by the rules thus affecting their income. An option for the most part you have been able to avoid. I hope your sales do well in Vegas but i ask that you put the shoe on the other foot and see the advantage you have been afforded by ignoring the true definition of the rules.

Dave..
As previously stated i understand the Miken issue however with all due respect you state " they are not violating any posting guidelines" My reference was to the following type of regular posts......" Breaking news....
I just received word from Dudley that I will be receiving the first batch of new 2.0 Lightnings in the next 7-10 days. If you need more info on the bat or have questions please get in touch."

Alan..
Yes i understand that however let's be honest...you also push Dudley bats as well as other items. I frankly don't care but you must admit you have garnered a very nice sales forum here (with very minor push back from SSUSA) and continue to do so. Message board guidelines do seem to be quite clear.

Hey Dave...
just wondering if i (and anyone else) can advertise our businesses and use this message board to sell our products anytime we wish? Appears that at least 2 individuals continue time after time to have special dispensation. Just asking.

Topic: Tournaments
Discussion: Balls

A sore subject and certainly not a new critique to SSUSA. Which has turned a closed mind to the issue and falling back on the " we have a remaining contract" with Anaconda as their out. The ball has always been inferior in the heat and has gotten progressively worse over the years. SSSUSA can put any type of spin they wish however the Trump Stote ball is an embarrassment, cost cutting short cut and a slap at those paying the fees and the ones fortunate to have sponsors putting in their hard earned money.

Discussion: West Coast Aftershock -

i believe some are overlooking the second and arguably the more significant infraction here. The action of consciously putting softballs (new or not) which may have been who knows where and handled by how many into the drinking water of others now becomes a potential significant health issue. It is only speculation who drank from that cooler and if this was not just the one game of several that they pulled this.

Hi Dave...just wanted to clarify what was previously posted. The offenders stored the balls (apparantly) in the same water cooler in the dugouts that we players use to obtain our drinking water from?

Dave D. word it how you wish however once again the above post sounds like a blatent "offer to sell". Just like some of the others. Thought you made it quite clear.

If a cheetah can run at 40mph and a ardvark only 10 mph how long will it take Johnny to get to the train station with 6 apples in his pocket?

Discussion: Time to eliminate senior bats

Hey Mark.... Pretty much what i was trying to state although via tongue in cheek (humor.. to those i may offended). Still many simply cannot play with the hand (and rules) they are dealt and just be happy to be able to get our old tired bodies on and off the fields and be absolutely grateful to do it again a few weeks later.

Discussion: Las Vegas Fields and Umpires

Sunset Park was not ready to host a tournament. Two porta pottys never cleaned once in 3 days (disgusting). Several of our wives came a long way to support our team and left after the first day or never came at all based on the facilities. Construction in progress also made it difficult on the fans. No double bag at first caused major controversy and problems (unacceptable). Umpires.....good calls and bad. Only suggestion is...make a call and stick with it. Enforce the correct game rules. Pros: ground crew tried to goom the infields between games and outfields were nice.

Steve...db again. My bad i got a bit wordy. Still suffering our loss to you at the Western Worlds. What i way trying to express was... It was not necessary that a ball go 400' but one that will remain hard and fair in 85 degree + temperature conditions.

Steve both observations listed above are equally correct. Simply put the Trump Stote above 85 degrees is garbage and has become widely known for this problem. The ROCK which is our primary BP ball several days a week agreeably shows occasional severe signs of knuckling.. however holds up very well in the heat. There is one ball (and I'm sure others) on the market that absolutely will hold up in temps 100 degrees and up. This is the FIRE ball made by Baden (not the Lexum). Unfortunately Baden is not a SSUSA sponsor which therein lies the question of cost and economics. Personally and i cannot speak for others it is not a ball that will go 400' as some believe or suggest but one that will remain hard and fair in 85 degree + temperature conditions.
