Discussion: NEW Miken Senior bat (You might want to read this one !)

Hmmm....very interesting. Miken needs to step it up if they want to keep up with Dudley, as they are running away with the Senior Softball market right now.

Discussion: SSUSA how can we get reclassed? MTC 50 2014 major Plus

Maurice, I didn't say won loss record, I said "final Standings"

Take for instance the Reno tournament you mentioned...you say we beat every other team in the bracket...but just who were those teams? There were only 4 teams in the bracket...so we beat:
1. East Bay Oldies (we play all the time in Nor Cal)
2. Nazareno
I believe all those wins were very close games...and I also believe Nazareno wasn't at full strength.

Then there was Western Nationals, where we took 2nd place by default...as there was only 2 Major Plus teams...and oh by the way we went 0-5 and lost to 3 Major teams in that very same tournament.

As for the Worlds LAST YEAR...well I don't recall exactly, but I think we went 2-2 and our 2 wins were also very, very close.

So as you can see, there are lots of other circumstances that come into play than just looking at the final standings.

Thanks for your concern Maurice...but the Warriors are just fine health wise.
You really should get more information though before judging how and where a team should be rated...not just looking at standings in any given tournament.

Discussion: Just got moved up and need some clarification

Good Luck E6...our team got bumped last year from Major to Major Plus around this time...we had to play from that point on...including Worlds in Las Vegas...as Major Plus.

Discussion: "Timing & Power Slumps? Balance Rotation and BatHead Snap" Swing Makeover #31

Good stuff...I had a recent hip injury and my timing and power dropped of the planet.
I'm still coming around slowly, but now it seems I have to retrain everything.

This video will help...Thanks for the post.

Just wondering how many 50 Major Plus teams will be playing in Reno next month.

Nor Cal Warriors will be there.

Discussion: Wondering about your team name; especially the unusual ones.

Back in the 80's I was on a team called the "Mulewhippers"

Based out of a town known as the "Cowboy Capitol of the World"...we thought it was fitting.

Discussion: So the question was....how to get more teams to play Major Plus

I believe the HR rule (outs) last year helped to bring the rest of the pack into the mix.
Keeping this rule intact is a good start.

Good Major teams were able to compete with the Major+, given the HR Rules.

Another idea is to limit the Courtesy runners to one per inning.
These two ideas alone can help more teams compete with Athleticism and balanced rosters.

Of course the rich well sponsored teams will always be elite, it's that money that hurts the rest of the teams.

Had a guy that was going to come play with us last season, good player, good guy, then he got approached by a sponsored team who promised him they would pay for everything...how can you compete with that? These same teams are constantly approaching and actively recruiting other players, even during games. It makes it hard when your team is mostly self sponsored.

But to answer your question:

1. Keep the HR outs rule the same
2. 1 courtesy runner per inning only.

One courtesy runner per inning...that's it.

Interesting Alan...who is the "We"?

There is a big difference is 1,000 Twin Tower swings and let's say....1,000 LeeLee swings.

Discussion: New MTC 55 Jayvee team looking to add NorCal talent

Tim, All great guys on BOTH MTC squads...Yes I had the pleasure of playing with both the Varsity and JV guys this past weekend as you mentioned....I can't say enough about the great attitudes and talent of them all.

Both teams will be fun to play against in NCSSA next season...the more teams the better.

It's not Dodgers vs Giants...but it could be a good rivalry...Do I sense a little dissension in your comments Tim?

Sorry Leelee... :-)

Ultimately... He will be taking somebody's spot in the lineup. It will be interesting to see how that affects team chemistry on an already established roster.

Discussion: You Make The Call

Great explanation Dave...I guess I owe an apology to someone.
He did make the right call...and we went on to win the game anyway, but I thought for sure, it was considered a force play.

Discussion: You Make The Call

Situation: Bases Loaded and 1 out.

Play: Line drive hit to outfield, outfielder makes a diving catch, umpire calls it a catch and an out. Runner on third tags and goes home, runner on first was running on the play and never tags, he stops two feet before reaching 2nd base...ball gets thrown to second baseman who then tags the runner out going back to first base for an inning ending double play. The runner on third scored before the tag was made for the third out.

Question: Does the run count?
