I fail to see the pride or the honor in this hollow win.

Discussion: Moving to Oregon, looking to jointeam

Welcome to Oregon.
You will find The Dalles.....well let's say remote...when it comes to senior softball. The city is redoing its softball playing fields this fall, and should have them ready to use in the spring. If you choose to play there, it will be against much younger guys or co-ed teams.

For senior action, hop on I-84 and head for Delta Park, in Portland. Super complex. Do a Google search for Delta Park and check it out. They have a great over 50 league , spring and a fall ball league. Games start at's a double header every evening, usually on Mondays. There is a ''team finder'' at the Delta web site. Join it and go to the try outs in April and you will be on a team. Travel time to Portland from the Dalles ....about 1 hour and 20 min. Beautiful drive through the Cloumbia River Gorge.

Oregon also has a ''Oregon Travelling League''. Senior teams play down the I-5 interstate corridor, from Eureka California to Portland Or. Actually....Eureka Ca...Medford Or..Bend Or...Eugene Or ....Salem Or...Portland ..
Or/Vancouver Wa....Redmond Or
Teams play on Sat and Sun...usually 3 games on Sat and 2 on Sun. Great league. Usually meet once a month.

Here you should fine a SSUSA team to hook up with if interested.

All the best .......

Discussion: combat end cap

My end cap came off my Combat in Feb 07, during batting practice. Tried two different epoxy products.they did not work. Last epoxy I used is still holding , it's been a year.
Product.......Super Glue Anchor-tite waterproof Epoxy
Product #15206 [upper left hand corner of
the package]
Where........Home Depot {paint Dept]
Important...Check the front of the package, make sure it
say ''Flexible''
Cean the cap and inside barrel I used that ''purple'' pvc cleaned, after removing and remainning pieces of old glue. Apply the epoxy after mixing according to directions. I stood the bat upright , resting on the cap, and placed some weight on it. It sets in 3 to 4 hours. I gave it 24 hours.

It's still holding after one year and many rounds of practice.
The ''hard epoxies'' crack after a while, the ''flexible epoxy'' is still doing great.

Good luck
