I have never seen this before. Do I read right that you get a point just for playing either Major or major Plus in Nationals or World's?

Discussion: Re-Learning Hip Rotation, Cures Early Season Slump. Swing Makeover #39

Agrred, big time. Steve Imlay actually used some of this to help me turn my swing around some from an early season slump. Thanks to both of you!It is amazing how a person can get off a little bit sometimes and all of a sudden you can't break out of a paper bag.

Discussion: Shadow Rock Complex

Dave, thanks for your responses. The problem is not with SSUSA. I will not advocate 'hitting them in the wallet'. That is shortsighted. They work hard to provide all of these tourneys all year long and in Las Vegas we have a problem with the fact Vegas gets so much money coming in they just don't care about a few senior softball players. But nickname36 says it all-IT'S VEGAS, BABY. Although I can care less if I ever go there again because I don't gamble at all and overall my wife and I have been there so many times we don't care much for the city, players all over LOVE to go there for the weekend. The vast majority of players will put up with a couple bad fields. And the competition is great. I am confident SSUSA will continue to talk to them about the fields.
One other comment since it was there a couple times already, that umpire that was more concerned with the cap being the right way rather than if he could even keep it on was one of the worst umps I have ever seen. The whole game was about her power on the field. She had controversy EVERY game. She wasted a lot of time herself many times and then hollered at players if they weren't ready to go. Sorry, Dave, but that one needs to go.

Hi dolfan-same to you-really too bad the light debacle interrupted the game when it did for an hour. It was a heck of an offensive game with the wind blowing in so hard the first 6 innings. Always competitive!

Discussion: Shadow Rock Complex

I also don't understand the attack on Dbax-he is absolutely right that NOBODY should play there. One of these days someone is going to blow a knee out on the grassy knoll on one of the upper fields, or someone is going to take a ball in the nose from a hop and be seriously injured. But we also have to realize that a big part of the problem is that the City of Las Vegas could care less whether we are there, and does not make any effort to make the best fields available for these events. Dave works with what he has to work with.
It was so bad up there that my WIFE says she WILL NOT GO WITH ME EVER AGAIN if we have to play there. I don't like to be at a tourney without her, so I will have a decision to make.
The wind coming off the top fields swirling onto the bottom fields also made it impossible to throw strikes with any consistency. That made a travesty of both of our games on Friday with about 30 walks in each game. That is just not how a major tourney like this should be played. And don't give me that 'Live with it' line. It could be avoided.

I watched a few innings of the Nighthawks win over Minnesota-the D shut them down, including a GREAT backhand running catch by the aforementioned Kenny Vaught. Hawks looked tough.
Congrats to the AZ Legends for a great tourney, too.

In the 60 M+, the Nighthawks beat Minnesota to win. Congratulations to all my former teammates, and all my friends on the Hawks.

Discussion: Vegas 50's Fields

Well, Shadow Rock again proved that it should not be used. The upper two fields are dangerously uneven-we even nicknamed the big hump behind second base 'the grassy knoll' on field 2. The grass, what there was of it, was deep enough to hide a softball in places. But then, when things went late, the lights would not come on in the 6th inning of a very competitive and entertaining game, and we had to stop for an hour until they got them on. Sorry, Dave-not a slam at you because I understand Las Vegas limits you tremendously. But some of the hops on those fields could have injured people. I am more disappointed that Las Vegas doesn't treat SSUSA better.

Discussion: I Believe in Softball

That's a great post. Can we add on?
I believe if you have a bad at bat-the next one will be better. I believe if you have a bad game the next one will be better. I believe that if you have a bad year, the next one will be better. I believe if we are down 15 in the open inning we can still win! I believe if you hustle every play, that sometimes it can even change a game that seems lost. I believe in saving that last home run for the open inning. I believe it takes the entire team to win or lose a game. I also believe there is no way I could do curls with a 40 pound weight. God bless this game and the people that play it and make it happen!

Discussion: Vegas 50's Fields

Congratulations to you and Fran! Family is still more important! Dave wasn't kidding-we alternated in right field on the bottom field and could hardly stand up at times. The wind by the plate was partially blocked and swirled, making it tough for even seasoned pitchers to throw strikes. I think we 'out walked' our 2 opponents.I know one of our guys never swung the bat until his SEVENTH at bat and another until his SIXTH at bat.

Discussion: missing first bse

I have played first base a lot. There are times, especially when stretching for a throw and barely holding the base that I could not possibly tell that the runner missed the base. I wouldn't know to appeal that.

Discussion: Vegas 50's Fields

Well, here we are getting ready for Friday in Vegas and the weather report is for winds of 30 gusting to 40 or 50. And we get shadow rock where they will probably hit 120 or so. LOL. Dave, your timing for this tournament was amazing! But we understand 40 TO 50 MPH is no big deal---IF YOU ARE A HURRICANE.

Discussion: 2016 melee

I got a chance to hit with the Melee yesterday with Steve Imlay and Mike Adair. It seems exceptionally live. Mike hit a huge bomb-with the wind, but we figured over 450. I liked the feel and hit some pretty well with it.

Discussion: Do we pay to play by the hour??

Hey, Bruce-again you and I are on a similar page. I would change the 10 year to 8 year age groups to 74. I wonder if SSUSA would consider offering 1 tourney a year where we did play those old style rules with just a couple small variances from today's game. Lets play with non-carbon fiber or double wall bats-like my old Steele's Bat or Louisville 38 oz bats, and play on 275 fences. Or maybe even wood bats on 250 fences. We could put together non-sanctioned teams for this one tourney with no restrictions. Call it a 'Retro' tourney. there are similar tourneys out there locally now.

Bruce, you are too much. But you are right. I bowled a perfect game last week, but I stopped in the 7th frame. Does it count? Lester, you are right that it is a good day. but it sure feels better to finish the full 7 innings. On the other hand, if we just play for an hour and a quarter, maybe we can play 8 innings.
