Discussion: Trump Stote Softball Concerns

Dave,
Since you know my identity does this mean every stupid thing I post can and will be used against me at the next tournament?
If so I'm thinking about changing my identity.

Hard to believe there is another Bert out there and a Marine no less.
This Bert aka FOFO was USCG. Semper Paratus!

You got that right Dave but we are also old and make bad decisions so nobody thought that far ahead. We played poorly enough to tank a few but teams kept letting us win. Now I realize why! Oh well it's all good and we will lace them up again in Vegas. BTW: You are killing me.

Discussion: Trump Stote Softball Concerns

We played in Mesquite and we DID NOT use the Microcell and were using the Stote. Had we known that we could use the Microcell we most certainly would have as we used it at TOC and really liked the ball.

Staff, thanks for the response but it doesn't fly as far as I am concerned. We earned the right to not be eliminated by winning and not losing. There was no reward. Any team would much rather bounce back and forth between fields than chase down balls 400 feet at the fence. As for a temporary fence there are types of fences that don't require the drilling of holes. I also realize that like a lot of bad decisions SSUSA makes it it unlikely to change soon. You guys are pretty stubborn and resistant to change. Happens when you get old.
Guess it doesn't matter, we will keep coming because we Kline to play ball.

Played in the Spring Worlds in Mesquite. Great Tournament. Good competition and for the most part weather was outstanding. Congratulations to D&K on winning the 55 Major. You guys are an excellent team.
I do have a question for SSUSA though. Why would you put the 55 & 60 Major winners bracket final games on the baseball field and not the two softball fields? It seems you would reward teams for winning and not punish them by making them play on the worst field possible. If we had lost I would have no problem having to play there. At the very least put up a temporary fence. Playing important games on that field just makes no sense.

Hey Dave,
NSA went from 4 ball 3 strike to 1-1 and fair only after 2 strikes a couple years back as well. Speeds up the game but cannot say I'm a big fan.

Used the ISSA Tattoo ball in Palm Springs last weekend. Temperatures we're in the high 80's low 90's but ball performed great.

D&K was not 4th. We lost our 9:30 game in the losers bracket Sunday to get knocked out. Believe that puts us in a tie for 8th.

Thanks Mike. We had a long row to hoe once you guys put us in the losers right out of the gate. We battled until midnight Saturday and played ate 0800 Saturday. Unfortunately we ran into a really good Triangle Masters and a wall. And Mike, I thought you had me to. Got lucky on that one. Thought it might have broke your guys backs but obviously that wasn't the case. Great game it was. Hope to see everyone again down the road.

Bought a new balanced and I must have gotten a lemon because my old Dudley was hotter out of the wrapper than the new one.

Congratulations to High Street. Nice win. Also wanted to tip my cap to Triangle Masters. Had the pleasure of playing two great games against them. They are a class act and great group of guys. Well run tournament. Our team had a blast. Can't wait to do it again.

Man,
Reading this thread only confirms what I have suspected all along We have some CRAZY MFERS playing Senior Softball. Quite entertaining. My favorite so far was MADOG and the "oh maybe it was b/c the CIA promoted drug sales so they could have their war on drugs in the inner cities.....thank reagen for that.....so again enlighten us.....". Classic.
And DBAX you're right. Bringing Barney in is going too far

I believe that not only is he going about his protest the wrong way, I believe that he is protesting the wrong thing. It's not Police Officers killing Blacks that is the problem, It's Blacks killing Blacks at an alarming rate in Cities such as Chicago that is the issue he should be bringing to light. Focus on REAL issues and go about it in a different way.
As a 49er fan I hope they cut him, not because of this ill thought out protest but because he sucks as a Quarterback. Worst decision Harbaugh made was to keep him over Alex Smith.
