Could not agree more Dave. Lifetime ban should be the standard for anyone caught altering a bat.

Thanks for your input Dave. That answers the question but doubt it will stop some from rolling their bats..........

Discussion: Enough Said

My understanding is rolling IS illegal as when it is rolled t comprises the bat much more that any human would by breaking the bat in by hitting a ball with it. If it would not pass a compression test after rolling, which would make it illegal why would it be OK to roll it?
I personally think it cheating but maybe Dave can chime in and give us the SSUSA take on the issue.

I'm with you Mike. Well worth the cost to play at BLD.

Discussion: Costs to play in Senior Southwest Championship

So charge the teams that are playing at Hollywood and Shadow Rock 8.00/Day to ease the burden for those fortunate enough to play at BLD? Now that's funny.
I have an idea, try to win it back in the Casinos.

I 2nd that. Well done Dave. Was really nice to be able to look at the bracket and know exactly what was going on. Tournament was very well run by the SSUSA Staff. It was great not having games played on the baseball field on Saturday and Sunday.

Check out the Nokona site. You can design your glove any way you want. Great product and excellent service. I just bought a new one after having my last Nokona for 25+ years

Discussion: 60 MAJOR DIVISION FIELDS FOR VEGAS WORLDS

Hi Dave,
I see the 60 Division drew the short straw again this year for Spring Worlds and will be playing in Mesquite as was the case last year. As I am sure SSUSA will once again schedule games on the Baseball fields is any consideration being given to putting up some temporary fences on those fields? Not having them really changes the game and not for the better. An outfielder can wear out pretty quick chasing the ball to the fence on those fields, trust me I know.

Discussion: Quality Softball Glove

I went on the NOKONA website and designed my own 14 inch glove and absolutely love it. Just a quality product and made in the USA. My last NOKONA lasted more than 25 years.

This is a terrible idea IMO. Think itís a knee jerk reaction to Timberworks beating up the 65M guys while getting the extra fielder? Better idea would have been for Timberworks to have to to play by 65M rules any time they play down. Once again, only my opinion.

Discussion: Vegas Worlds - Field Assignments

Hey Murray,
As I live in Las Vegas I have played on both for years and as the 60M was stuck at Shadow Rock for the SW Championships I have seen them recently. There was a time when the were decent but that time has long since past. I'll take BLD and a little bat control any day.
Dave, why don't you use City fields?
Lorenzi has two great fields still usable and Doc Romeo I believe 5 and both bet the hell out of Shadow Rock, Hollywood and Cheyenne.

Put them at Shadow Rock and Hollywood Dave and see how much they will then appreciate BLD.

Discussion: 60 MAJOR DIVISION FIELDS FOR VEGAS WORLDS

Hey SSUSA. Saw the field assignments for Vegas Worlds and have to ask, why does 60 Major draw the short straw again? Seems being stuck in Mesquite on the baseball field for Spring Worlds or Shadow Rock for SW Championships would rate 60 Major getting a decent complex for the Vegas Worlds. I mean, why screw the same division three times in a row.
Apparently that's not the case...........

Right now there is a mandate for masks indoors. Our Governor has stated he is not going to shut down again but then again he is a politician so you can't trust him.

Discussion: Southwest Tournament

I don't know the facts which is why I was asking. I play in the Lorenzi League from time to time and just never heard this mentioned. The referenced individual wouldn't have the authority IMO to ban any LVSSA member from participating in the Lorenzi League but obviously some people believe he does.
BTW: I have no worries about being embarrassed about anything I post on this site. If I was worried I would hide my true identity like so any others seem to do.................
Later Dave.

Hi Dave,
I'm a member of LVSSA and I didn't get the memo that said I would be kicked out of LVSSA by the former President if I worked the tournament. Can you email me a copy?
I'm curious as to how a FORMER President would have the authority to kick me out. I suppose I can give him a call and ask.

Hi Dave,
SSUSA tells us Hollywood has been remodeled and is an awesome complex. Not that I don't trust them but I think I'll drive up there and look myself while I am checking out the weeds at Shadow Rock.
Good Luck to you as well.
