Discussion: Clean vs Dirty

I have Dudley End Loaded Bat, and the barrel has a substance on it that attracts dirt and grime. Does it make it any difference, performance, whether the bat has been dirtied up or if it is clean? I just used a scrub daddy sponge to clean it. Maddog, I know what your comment will be about my bat, are you hitting the ball hard enough to dirty it up?

Note: We just played in the Team Texas Shootout Tournament in Austin, it was ran extremely well and Tee Shirts were awarded to the 1st and 2nd place finishers. The Design Logo on the shirts are great.

Message from Cathy Pottorf of the Senior games last chance to enter, if interested please call her Monday at 210-302-6870, thanks JB

Please join us for the Texas Senior Games which will be held March 25th and 26th. The 60 ‘s will play on Saturday and the 50’s will play on Sunday at Kennedy Softball Complex. Depending on the amount of registration, the 70’s will play either Friday at Normolye or Saturday at Kennedy. Since this is a non-qualifying year for Nationals, we have reduced the price to $250. To register, call me at 210-302-6870. Cost of softballs, umpires and fruit included in the price. If you have previously signed up, I will get a new check from you and those that have credit cards have not been charged yet. Please let me know if you have any questions. Hope to see you there.

Jack, I was unable to access your website. Would you check your website address? Did you get any shots at the Winter Haven Diamonplex Sport Complex, if so any shots of the Texas Rattlers?
Thanks

Discussion: Additional Stats to Track-SF Giants (K Tomlinson)

Add a couple more columns to your stats spread sheet for pinch hitting:

Tomlinson’s seven pinch-hits were tied for second on the team after Gillaspie’s 11.
He was 7-for-17 as a pinch hitter, adding three walks. Tomlinson’s simple swing and up-the-middle approach have proven perfect for important spots.
He’s a .315 career hitter with runners in scoring position,
a .373 hitter in situations baseball-reference deems “late and close,” and a .367 hitter in “high leverage” spots.

New Stats :
RISP-(Runners in Scoring Position)
Note:You may be already tracking this stat
L & C (Late & Close)
HLS (High Leverage Spots).

As some folks may have noticed the TX STATE CHAMPIONSHIP POST has been removed by SSUSA Staff. For those of us who have been classified as "Snarky Commentators" that is one of deadly sins that will get your post(s) removed.
So much for our 1st amendment right.

PH.D's breaking the down the science:

"Softball" - A Contradiction In Terms
by Ronald D. Noebe, Ph.D. and Mark McDowell, Ph.D.

More homeruns hit than ever before!
Games taking longer to play!

It Must Be The Bats?

There is no doubt that softball bats today are highly engineered "tools" made out of sophisticated lightweight structural materials with the sole purpose of propelling a ball faster and farther than ever before. Bats get all the press and therefore, all the blame. But there has been a more insidious change in equipment that has been mostly overlooked, and yet can impact the game much more than the bat- It's THE BALL!

Nevertheless, softball associations have focused their attention on bat performance testing and stricter regulations (more on this in future articles), while softballs have received much less scrutiny in recent years. Current softballs are very simple yet efficient pieces of equipment, (see Figure 1 - Parts of a Softball). They consist of three basic parts. A leather or synthetic cover, a raised stitched seam, and a solid polymer (polyurethane) core. It is this solid polymer core that controls the bulk properties of the ball such as COR and compression.

Discussion: Trump Rock

This may explain why LP hit one out in the Rocking Reno several years ago, temp was around 60 and the wind was blowing at 20-25 mph:
As a player, you should also be aware that weather has an enormous impact on the compression of a softball. Studies have shown that when the temperature is 100 degrees, an average softball looses 200 pounds of compression as compared with the same softball at 60 degrees. This means that a softball that is a 525 pound compression ball at 60 degrees may play like a 375 pound ball at 100 degrees. In addition, clouds, rain, and humidity also affect the compression of a ball. 70 degrees and sunny creates lower compression balls than if it was 70 degrees and cloudy. Leather balls generally take on more moisture in rainy or humid conditions than synthetic balls. This will generally raise the compression and level of play up to a point, then performance will decline once the ball takes on too much water and becomes too heavy.

Discussion: Trump Rock

Is the Rock softball, 44/375, to expensive to be the standard bearer for all SSUSA Tournaments? The Rock is the ball that is used in the World Championship in Vegas, but I believe that is the only SSUSA tournament that it is used.

Discussion: Hall of Fame Points

To summarize: If you are a AA team and win a SSUSA tournament that awards (5) ATP's and a MVP medal, make sure that you reward (6) players, since AA players are not eligible to accrue HOF points.
Note; The MVP Player's Medal for players playing on a (AAA, Major< & Major Plus teams) is a team MVP recognition and is not eligible for HOF points.
Enough said, I am getting ready for the TOC.
