SSUSA Staff, QUESTION. Have you ever tried to renew online? I just looked to see any links from my homepage and the SSUSA Homepage and did not find anything.
Have a great day.

Discussion: Advice

Playing SS you have some time, However,
you may get put at 3rd base
and, WITH the Senior bats you may have about 1 second for
a ball to go from bat to even with 3rd base.

70+ men can hit a line shot over the fence with the Senior Bats.
So, if that shot gets pulled at the 3rd baseman, well?????

Been there and had it happen to me.

Discussion: Cataract Surgery

I wear bifocals (lined). I bought a pair of single focus sunglasses and found it did not work out good. When very use to bifocals it is hard to adjust (for me) to a single focus.

I tried Progressive a long time ago and found as a softball gets closer to you, especially batting the Progressive lenses tend to make the softball seem to curve because of the progressive magnification.

Discussion: Looking For Some Feedback

southpaw, some very good guidelines that can work for you and team.

The only thing I do different is in the outfield I only use my glove hand as I found out for me a long time ago I can catch
some balls that way that otherwise I could not get to. If I tried to use 2 hands I would miss some catches for outs (in the air). With one hand you can get up to 18 inches in reach.

When I play SS or 3B I always use 2 hands on ground balls.

Hope you have a great year with the new team and thanks for doing that.

Discussion: Taping of bat handle.

Jethro, in 1994 while playing in the Industrial "A" national championship l had my bat taped like this. The umpire made me remove the extra tape before l could bat.

Discussion: New Rules

I like a full count better than 1-1.
However I hit the first pitch that is in any of my zones.
The problem for me with 1-1 is a low pitch that hits the front of the plate, then I have to protect the plate.
I like to unload on the ball and with 2 strikes that is difficult to do sometimes when protecting the plate.

Discussion: Who won, what was the score?

Mr Gorilla, while logging onto your site to setup an acct
I got a notification your Website was Tracking my Computer.

I immediately hit the "X" to get out of your website. Can you
tell me what is going on with this action?

Thanks,

1st. I agree balls and strikes could be better.

2nd. The Umps only get to go to the LLWC one time in their life and they pay all their own expenses and I am sure do their very best. They get invited based on how they were rated all year long.

3rd. I doubt there are few available that could do a perfect job in the universe. Especially people that knock them down.


AND MOST OF ALL. The Ball Players do not SAY A WORD about a good or bad call. That is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. Incredible great young men.

Discussion: Throwing Help

HJ - one season a few years ago my shoulder started hurting when throwing, warming up throwing definitely helped.

I added an exercise at the fitness club with a cable machines.

Facing away from machine about 4 foot away. Cable arm adjusted high over my head. With arm fairly straight I would use a lite weight and move arm forward at about 2 o'clock in a smooth motion slowly then let weight pull hand and arm back toward machine. Started at about 5 lb mark and worked up in weight as arm healed.

Result no more pain when throwing and can zing a ball from third to first or from the outfield.

I added many angles and semi throwing exercised as time went on.

Discussion: Pay to play a quality tournament

nickname36, it is not bitching.

Us old guys (U B 40 or so??) have been playing for
many years. What has happened (small List)

WAS
7 INNINGS NOW 4 TO 7
1.5 HOURS or unlimited time.. now 40 to 50 min +1 most of time
cost per tour was $50 to $125, now $395 OR SO TO $750
Team Rating this is tough, all will not always be happy.

This is just a small list but seems to be very important
to most of the ballplayers I know.

James

LOL on the age comment, would like to jump back to 40
and have another go at it all.

Discussion: Best Batting Glove for Pratice

I started using MG golf gloves, they fit and feel good. You know U are wearing gloves while getting a complete feel of the bat. I am on their e-mail list so get these bargains on gloves like for $5.50 each plus flat shipping of less than $4 for as many gloves as you want.

Discussion: Shadow Rock Complex

nickname36, actually read my post above as it says I totally understand how to play the fields and no ball got over my head.

And the same advantages apply to both teams. Just think they are terrible fields. jmo

Discussion: Shadow Rock Complex

Having played at Shadow Rock last fall I really believe if a team gets assigned to that field they should have the Absolute right to withdraw and get their money back.

Playing there made a local tournament in a cow pasture much more fun, This Is Suppose to be a WORLD Tournament, really!

Also the turf fields are awful, ball can bounce 30 feet high and a bunt will pickup speed all the way to the fence. And please do not say "U just need to learn how to play them"
I know how to play them and it was just not softball.

We had about 22 teams and everyone I talked to despised our park assignment.

Finally Dave on 99.99% of working with you and staff for 20 years(?) have been great. Thanks for all the other stuff you do.
