Discussion: Arthritic Feet

Anyone have Arthritis in their feet? X-Rays show that I do (some toes are "bone on bone") and I need help in finding a way to relieve the severe pain! My Podiatrist apparently developed an operation to "cut" the nerves leading to the pain, but I am very reluctant to do that!

I am trying creams, ointments, roll on pain killers and special socks with minimum results!

I am also taking acetaminophen's (can't take Ibuprofen in any form) and Hydrocodone (by prescription) but I'm concerned about hurting my kidneys and/or liver.

Is anyone using "pain management methods" that are helping!?

Thanks for any input!

Discussion: 11 on defense

For whatever reason the rule was established, it is no longer valid or necessary in any age group. If you watch the positioning of the 11th man they very rarely are in a position to "protect" the pitcher (who now wear protective gear that didn't exist when the rule was put into effect), the middle is still open. It is now used like the Major league defenses that "shift" from batter to batter.

As for "getting" more players into the game, that's nonsense. You can have numerous players as AH's and rotate players into the defense if you want them more involved in the field.

Time to eliminate this "antiquated rule! the 70's are not a special group of old people that need to be protected!

Discussion: Hip Replacemant Results

Had both replaced, one in DEC. 2006, one in Jan. 2008. Couldn't rehab properly due to a life threatening infection complication from the first (right) replacement. The second was great until now. I played every year since the replacements but I've never been the same, especially as it relates to power!

Having said that, when it's time to replace your hips you really have no choice and most everyone I know that did has had much better results than I have.

If I had to do it over I would (with a different Orthopedic Surgeon). Make sure you choose the very best OS in your area!

Discussion: WE NEED 70 MAJOR OUTFIELDER FOR AN ARIZONA TEAM

Does this person need to hit or just play good defense. Does he need to be able to move "laterally". Does he need to be able to run quickly to first base?

Based on your answers I have some one in mind who may be able to help you!

Sadly, I've just found out that there will be no temporary fences at Hunter Park due to the difficulty with "punching out" the holes to secure a temporary fence in the Artificial Turf of the Baseball field.

Guess we'll just have to "grin and bear" it. Good Luck to all you outfielders!

JDub, 6 outfielders, plus a pitcher and catcher, leaves 3 infielders to play 4 positions. Enjoy our banter, stay healthy. I want you to experience playing when your 70!

Sure enough our first game is on the VERY LARGE baseball diamond at Hunter Park (#3)!!! Hopefully, they will be using the temporary 300ft fences.

Every 70 year old I've talked is concerned about this!

JDub, you are looking to play with a 55 team, so I am going to presume you have no idea how "relative" the term "slow" is to a seventy year old!

Also, a 6 man outfield would leave a 3 man infield.

I hope SSUSA is reading the post on the "baseball size" fields in Bullhead City. When drawing up the schedule for the 70's in Mesquite please take into consideration to NOT use the two Baseball diamonds. Last year we played two on the upper diamond at Pioneer and one at "large' field at Hunter.

It was ridiculous to watch 70 year old outfielders (I ain't one of them) chasing balls an extra 50-75 feet that were hit in the gaps. It is exhausting and "unhealthy" to expect 70 year old's to play in "baseball" sized diamonds without a 300ft temporary fence!

Discussion: Passing of Fred Purvis

Played with and against Fred for many years. Awesome Power! What everyone has said abot him as an individual is absolutely true! I never heard him say a bad word about anyone. It has been said many times about others but in Fred's case it couldn't be more accurate - " a great player, but an even better person". God Bless, you will be missed!

Discussion: 7 run rule

From what I heard two of the "best" 70 Major + teams in the nation failed to hit even ONE home run in Sacramento last week (each played 5 games)

I agree with the above post - Home Runs are very difficult to hit in the 70's and in fact if a study was made I don't think there would be one SSUSA tournament in which the allotted 7 was reached by a single team!

If I'm not mistaken one of the 70 Major Plus teams did do an analysis of their home runs and determined they had hit a TOTAL of 7 in over 300 ab's in SSUSA competition!

If the 70's went to a "one up rule" it would allow the combining of the Major and Major + teams into one division for a much "broader" competitive base.

Discussion: Combat Red 10inch EL

I presume then, that this is the "Red Canadian Combat" referred to in the SSUSA response and therefore IS ILLEGAL for use in SSUSA events!

Yes, they are adamant that it has never been approved by SSUSA.

Thanks for the responses, but I would like one from SSUSA. The people who think this bat is "illegal" are SSUSA umpires. Thanks!

Discussion: Combat Red 10inch EL

Is the Senior Red Combat 10inch barrel that was released several years ago (BPF 1.20) legal to use in Senior Softball?

I have heard that it was never approved by SSUSA. Is this true?
