Discussion: HOW TO PREVENT A HEATSTROKE

GOOD ADVISE from the MAYO CLINIC ABOVE.

During the game, players should drink a 1-3 cups of water between innings, even if you need to force yourself to do it.

got extra players ? utilize them...

most teams have 2-4 " fast runners " that are used to run for the slow players, HAVE MERCY ON THESE GUYS!

Carry a water bottle in your bag, keep it filled in case the water container goes empty.

Keep an eye out for your team-mates to see if they are developing any symptoms of heatstroke.

common sense sometimes goes out the window during a game, look out for each other, especially the guys that dont want/like to sit..

temps in texas can/will get hotter in the coming months, plan accordingly..

Discussion: non prescription " polarized " sunglasses for softball.

Wayne, can you bring out a couple of pair to check out next time we get together ?

Alan: i'll check out your page, thanks ....

Dan, i found a pair of welding glasses and bought them , will try them out at a practice. thanks !

there is a company called " LOCS ", they make " super darks" sunglasses, and they are really dark. i bought a pair, but i only use them when the early sun is right in your eyes and i am batting... they are too dark when out in the outfield.
If you wear them too long, you will have trouble adjusting to normal light when you remove them...

Discussion: non prescription " polarized " sunglasses for softball.

Guys : what brand ( non-prescription) is the best pair of polarized sunglasses for playing the outfield ?

dont need to spend $200.00 plus, just something reasonable that would help when the ball is coming out of the sun. non glare, not super darks, etc.

what is your experience ?

thanks !!!!!

Discussion: Renting a car from Budget

Another thought, if BUDGET is advertising on the SSUSA web page...

Seems to me that SSUSA should try to help resolve this problem, after all, a senior softball player that is part of SSUSA just got nailed.

HOPE SSUSA RESPONDS ON THIS POST, IF NOT, YOU MAY HAVE TO APPROACH SSUSA FOR ASSISTANCE.

IF BUDGET WILL NOT RECTIFY THIS PROBLEM, I FOR ONE, WILL NOT GIVE THEM MY BUSINESS , I AM SURE OTHER PLAYERS FEEL THE SAME WAY. THIS FACT NEEDS TO BE CONVEYED TO SSUSA.

SSUSA CANNOT AFFORD PLAYERS UPSET WITH ONE OF THEIR ADVERTISERS.

Discussion: Renting a car from Budget

I would tell the credit card company that you will only pay them for the amount of contract price you signed for when you picked up the car...

let the credit card company fight it out with Budget, at the worst offer a split on the overcharge. dont give up, 85.00 buys a lot beer.

good luck !!!! you got nothing to lose for trying..

Discussion: OKRA FOR POSSIBLE DROP IN GLUCOSE/SUGAR LEVELS FOR DIABETICS ?

Have you guys ever hear of this ? IT will not cure diabetes " but " may lower your levels .

Article says you cut off the ends of the okra, cut into the side, drop 2-3 pcs into a glass of water,
let it sit overnite, and drink the slimy concoction first thing in the morning..

Anybody try this ??

Worth a shot, okra is cheap..

according to a blood test i had done, i am told i am pre diabtic, so , i am going to try it, in addition to change my diet and back into the gym and lose a few lbs...

any input would be appreciated, there are posting on the web about this stuff.

SNOPES says it might be helpful..

i really need to find out if anybody had any success with this.

thanks !

SSUSA- If a team wins the masters in las vegas, say as a AAA, they should get bump up to MAJOR.
QUESTION: HOW are the "other " associations notified of the re-rating in SSUSA of a team that gets bumped up.

whose responsibility is it to notify these other associations ??????????

looking forward to your response.
thanks
