Discussion: When to postpone shoulder surgery?

I have had 3 in the past all before 1985. At this point I have limited range of motion not much over 90 degrees. Last year I went to a shoulder specialist the X-rays showed severe arthritis. He said I need a replacement but he wouldn't do it until I was past 65. He suggested a cleanup and after scheduling it I backed away. I play as much golf as I want, I have a very active and rigorous workout program in which I do use the shoulder. Can't throw a lick and really don't play much anymore. In the words of my doctor no one has ever died from a sore shoulder. He told me if I walked on my arms my quality of life would be terrible. Any exercise below 90 degrees including swinging I have no issues and you probably would not know my right arm is bad. I have also taught myself to do a lot of things with my left arm. Good luck

Discussion: Lower Back Pain Home Remedies

Dave an easy thing you can do is buy a large stability ball and if you sit a lot say at home on the computer or in an office alternate sitting on the stability ball for say 30-45 minutes and then back to your chair. I replaced my computer chair at home with a stability ball. Because your bouncing around it promotes blood flow. Easy and cheap solution to sitting in a chair constantly.

Discussion: Why Do Some Guys Lose It Sooner

I can't speak to the losing it end but as too rest I've had to rethink what appropriate rest is due to the type of activities I'm involved with. From a training standpoint I found that a heart rate monitor has significantly changed the way I train. Once you know what your heart is doing the group I train with have significantly increased our workload. I'm training with a 30 year old who has gone from 270 lbs to 200 lbs in 5 months with tremendous increases in strength and athletic movement. We both sought out advice and rest is quite important. We train very hard 3 days a week with complete rest 2 days and then light activity the other 2. I personally would not attempt to play softball on the 3 days we train hard. We have also noticed we can't eat the same. Proper rest and nutrition became very integral to what we are attempting to accomplish.

Discussion: TOURNAMENT WINNER AUTO MOVEUP

Mango good to see you guys in San Clemente. We enjoyed the two games with you guys. For those that haven't played Somerville I have played against most of these guys for almost 10 years. They were Courtesy Auto as a 40 team and aged up. They added a few guys, Mango correct me but all but two of your guys are within 40 miles of each other. We had a good conversation about the major/major plus debate. It's doable I believe with the right thought that doesn't break up teams. I don't think teams should be broken up at our age. Mango you and I had pretty good seats to last weekends games. What I saw was 4 athletic teams with some differences, some were subtle, some big, a lot of Hr's some really bad pitching. The big difference was not in the hitting but the fielding and pitching.

Discussion: Tournament Prizes

The SOCAL players should remember the old A&V tournaments. I played in a few of those and the winners would get a nice set of custom printed shirts. As a team we gave the artwork and we were able to add a jersey that we could wear in tournaments. We put the team name, player number with our artwork and added an additional jersey for those 2 and 3 day tournies. In these hard times not having to pay for an additional jersey would go a long with teams I would believe.

Discussion: Combining M & M+

As a major player the one thing that would have me say no to merging is the fact that for a major team to add a player either to replace or try and get better especially late in the season is that we have to find a tournament to qualify our roster with the new addition while the major plus teams don't. So to add a player the team is out of pocket around $5,000 (500 per player travel etc) so we can add a player while the major plus teams don't have to bear this expense. Without the exact identical roster rules I would vote no. On a side note I'm hearing from some of my major plus friends they very rarely get 7 innings in becasue of the 9 runs per inning and I believe major plus now has a mercy rule. We have played 25 games this year and I believe everyone of ours went 7 innings with the 5 run rule. The current major HR rules are 7 1 up and walks after the limit, allows for plenty of balls over the fence would that work for the major plus guys?

Discussion: Core muscle exercises

You hear a lot about core strength with a back injury you really have to concentrate on the muscles that control rotation and stability. Here are three easy ones I do every day. Don't need weights,or expensive equipment. Make this educational I know a lot of players with balky backs.

Google these, you will get you tube instructions. These three will help your softball or golf swing also.

Russian twist for rotation
Supemans for your back muscles
Side plank for core stability

Tired of hearing about bats, balls and how sad the senior game is.

Discussion: Walk-off Rule

Yes Gary those are national rules. UTRIP is for class E ball which is by far the most prevalent of their divisions. I don't understand your reluctance to share your thoughts on those idiotic rules. Some of the young mens rules are far more ridiculous than anything senior ball has yet you hold them up as the example for all to follow. You do need to get out more.

Discussion: Walk-off Rule

Gary UTRIP and NSA. If your going to comment on senior for having it wrong then your beloved young mans game is off the rails. How come you don't know these rules when you hold senior ball to be like everyone else?

Discussion: Walk-off Rule

Gary please address these rules offensive ejection if you hit a HR yet you can still play the field but when you come up your an automatic out. How about if you hit a HR the other team gets runs and the penalty escalate for example the 4th HR is 4 runs for the other team. All rules in your beloved young mans game come on man give it a rest. Softball in general is messed up.

Is senior softball about the players or the umps. If it becomes backwards would that bother anyone?

Discussion: Moving to Major Plus

Boston you have bigger problems than just softball. I'm going to tell you a story and don't care if you like it or not. I have a friend here in Vegas who has had two hip replacements and after one of them suffered a major setback due to infection. This gentleman was a monster of a player back in the day. What your advocating most likely may have killed this gentleman. You could see the determination to come back and play even at a much reduced capacity and folks here in Vegas were glad to accomodate. His love of the game as you put it probably saved his life. I've seen guys crawl to the park to be with their friends theres a dignity to getting out and trying. In some cases it is more noble watching someone struggle than watching the healthy guy who doesn't appreciate what he has.

Discussion: Moving to Major Plus

Webbie sometimes the manager won't let a player move up. Interesting how that works sometimes. Steve Imlay and I were talking about that same scenario just last week. Hard to imagine any scenario where a manager would keep a player from trying his hand at major plus. Can you even fathom that Webbie given the positive experience you have had.

Discussion: On Base Percentage (OBP)

I have a feeling Gary19 is going to agree with me but OBP and batting average really gets bastardized when you don't have to make 3 outs. If seniors required 3 outs per inning that would crater some of the 700 plus OBP you read about. Imagine what recording 21 outs would do to these numbers.
