Discussion: 52/275 Ball

From an former post: Did not wish to enter this nauseating debate but wished to state that i understand the issues regarding the quality and performance of the current Senior ball (Trump Stote). Little has been said regarding this ball and its relevant performance in the heat. No secret here that it turns to mush at approx. 90 degrees. Great for our Mad Dog spewer of .52/275 sludge. That notwithstanding it is a good, safe and fair ball in cooler temperatures and have yet to hear one complaint (other than the heat issue) in years on the tournament circuit. In fact numerous suggestions have been made to replace the Stote with the Baiden FIRE ball which substantially stays harder and better performs in the heat. I cannot or will not speak for the masses. HOWEVER...i personally hit several times a week with a large group of major/major + players AND included in our batting practice balls were many of the actual Trump .52/275 balls TESTED IN LAGUNA CA. FACT: the general consensus is that these balls are in actuality "garbage", performed poorly and very well could be considered a "limited flight" inconsistent ball. Solution: Select and play in tournaments and leagues that offer the down graded ball you constantly harp about. Let the others who enjoy the current standards do what they wish.....

To Staff: thanks for addressing two of the three circus acts, you still have one more mad dog act to pack up and put on the truck out of town.

Discussion: any one find a Miken warm up jacket in Reno?

Thanks guys for the kind words. Yes, I'm the same Dennis first baseman for Wilson a few years back, then Timberworks 55's & 60's. Mike if i would have known you were with Robson Ranch I would have asked you for one more run at Reno on Sunday morning. All kidding aside glad to get your jacket back to you I know it holds some memories. John B. of Timberworks was also instrumental in its return. See you at the next SSUSA tourney.

Discussion: Dear Dirty

Hey Pinky....GREAT POST. They got rid of only two of the three stooges!!!! Anyone ie: Dirty/Gary 19 who has to post his personal measurements and spew bile regarding his so called education certainly has issues.....many issues. He is entitled to his opinion but give it a rest.... I'm sure he hates to read this on a computer via the internet......which is someone else's R&D and technology...but i guess he manipulates progress, advancement and technology to meet his own agendas. Your a absolutely correct the Senior game is alive and well as is.

Discussion: TIME TO EXTEND TIME LIMITS

Hi DD....DB14 here. I 'm sure i will get blasted by the regulars and others but here goes. WHAT IS THE BIG HURRY? We all have our reasons but frankly i thank the big guy that i am still able to go out on weekends in the sun with my friends playing a game that i truly enjoy. If it takes a bit longer or the games run over or could be extended so be it. I do agree that 60 min is in today's game is not sufficient time to get in seven. No 1-1. I do however greatly support a "modest time extension" however selling that to the TD's is another issue. Food for thought i ran across some old CA. USSSA programs (1984, 1985) stating 70 min. time limits on games....interesting!

Discussion: Team Looking For TOC Players

To: WOW whomever you are. I strongly suggest you READ, UNDERSTAND and COMPREHEND the rules for adding players. We initially DID have a sufficient number of players on the qualifying roster. As stated previously we lost 5 now 6 starters and are simply trying to field a team.

Discussion: Team Looking For TOC Players

Hi John (OTE24), db14 (Dennis first baseman) here. No i will not be attending. There are five starters who for a multitude of VALID & LEGITIMATE reasons cannot go. It continues to amaze me how many self proclaimed experts continue to pontificate. I started this thread SIMPLY to search for an extra player or two, who met ALL SSUSA additional player requirements and the same old individuals who are constantly on every thread chirp in with irrelevant spew taking the thread in their own direction. It is not worth it to address each of their concerns, they may wish to start their own thread. John hope to see you in 2010 as you have always been a class guy and represent your team admirably.

Discussion: Team Looking For TOC Players

HEY GUYS.....TIME OUT!!! The initial intent of this thread was a simple "looking for players for the TOC" If you wish to hijack a thread to discuss tournament dates, player's associations, rules, world hunger, who shot Kennedy PLEASE start your own thread. I appreciate your passion but we have gotten off the topic.
