Discussion: Ralph Adams

Ralph was a great friend and great man. He was the kind of man that talked with you not at you. We've had many discussions over the years and he was always connected in the conversations. Some people you have to talk to and some you want to talk to. Ralph was the guy you always wanted to talk to. I am fortunate to have had him as a friend and I am sure he will be missed by far more people than me.

God speed Ralph hit them far and often.
Signed a fortunate friend.

You have to go up near Toms River. Here is the ASA commissioner number he could tell you the closest place.

Discussion: Corona Virus (COVID-19) Part II

It really is just common sense, which isn't so common anymore. It is the amount of touches in a day. So 1 person shows up at a tournament and touches the bathroom handle. The virus lives on objects for hours if not days. Now 100 people follow throughout the day. There is now 100 infected people. They now walk around the complex touching things. Benches, railings, snack bar countertop etc. Now those 100 carried it on to 1000 plus. By the end of the day 1 person could have infected every person in the complex directly and indirectly. Now those 1000 go home not knowing and infect 10 people each, and on and on. That is why this has to be stopped.1 person can infect 10,000 people indirectly in 1 day.

Many factories still closed, docks are shut down in the southern provinces. Hopefully they will get it opened up. It is far worse than they are telling.

The rule is the rule and call was correct. It doesn't mean you have to like it. Just like getting a speeding ticket.

The rule is pretty clear on that call. Problem is they didn't enforce it much ever so now it looks bad.

So the real question is why are ASA bats not allowed?

They perform less than 1.21

I know a pitcher in young guys ball that does this and slides into bases purposely trying to take out fielders and has. It is not a good idea to allow base runners to wear these.

I'm ripping him because it's not the first time he's come on here as an "expert" plagiarizing other peoples work. I'd like to know what his lab has for test equipment? What equipment did he use on field? I know what was used when this study was originally done in 2013 both in lab and on field. I was one of the hitters on field because of my ability to hit line drives and hit targets at 300 ft. Macenko can attest to that, or should I say one of his old bosses.

A little late to the party this was all done in 2013 and it is odd the actual and specific wording is now in your banter.

Why don't you post the actual test data and give credit the ones that did the scientific testing that you are regurgitating on here. People put a lot of time effort and money into the work they should be recognized for it.

Discussion: A fifth rating?

Benji that's my point.

You played within the rules but had give runs or a player. There is so many guys out there to build teams that in the cut up parts of the country it is impossible to build competitive teams to compete.

I know as a player myself I wouldn't want to win or lose the way the game went.

If teams could pick up 2 more guys including you guys in the the west I think more teams could be competitive. Then everyone plays straight up. Better game less rules and more fun..

The reality is you guys may never use the extra two pickups but you could if needed so its fair to all.

The game has so many rules due to the equipment used its getting crazy. I remember back in 92 in NJ the 2 best teams battled it our with single wall bats and the score was 19 to 15. Most of those guys are still around and playing 70, All great players and big name guys. Back then you played 7 inning and scored as many runs as you could.

Dave hope you Fran and the entire family are well.

A couple of observations I've seen over the years of being involved with senior softball as a vendor going back to 1992 and as a player.

The best sponsor usually can get the best players.

The best players will attract other best players.

At some point there needs to be a top program that can work in younger ball it's major. ! team has been dominate for about 11 years. Yes they lost a few but I think it was 9 out of 11 at 1 point. Teams like this and the ones that compete against them get the best players from all over the country.. Yes I know this will not work for seniors because there is probably only 2 sponsors that could afford it..

But at the top level the top teams have different advantages and disadvantages based on whether they are from the east or west. take JK they can play entirely within the rules and maintain the best team status. There is an abundance of players available to them to pick from. Borders give them almost the entire west coast at least where the most players are from. Plus they get 2 pickups.

Now team Kitty great team and sponsors. If the states here on the east coast weren't so cut up they could have a equal team and wouldn't have needed the extra fielder to compete. Now I didn't say win they would be able to compete on the same level. Now if they get moved up based on the win the have no one to play out east, that's no fun.


So lets say you allow major plus 4 pickups. It would help the east greatly while not punishing the west they too could get 4. I think it would make the other teams in the west stronger allowing them to get dome outside guys that JK doesn't have and raise their competitiveness.

In the east it would allow many teams the ability to get more competitive. There's many players to pick up 2-3 hours away from top teams but cant play with them because of border restrictions. By doing this everyone gets better no one get hurt.


Then go to major and allow 2 and again everyone gets better no one gets hurt. The east has always been tough since the restrictions, and I know you guys have done many things to make it easier for these teams but just a few players to the top two teams would really equal out the competition.


IF know JK didn't like to lose that way and Kitty win that way, the rules determined the outcome of the game These guys just want to go out and battle on the field and the best rises. As long as east and west gets same amount of pickups the competition will get better for everyone.


Wish I could come to convention to dee you guys but I've had a few surgeries in the last 3 months and still cant really walk. Say hi to all hope your all well.

Yeah kinda dumb. Instead of changing geographical borders so east coast teams can compete at a higher level, the best teams in the west got bumped to plus plus. I think it's unfair to the west because now they have to give runs or a fielder when the teams aren't that far apart.

Team Kitty beat JK.inc in 50 major plus finals taking the extra player. If they were allowed to get a couple more players from around the east coast they could have and would have played them straight up. Who knows who would have won but the games would have been great to watch.

How you been btw.

Discussion: Major++

Sorry anther point. Right now there are several posts from teams in the east looking for players. There are some right now. I don't think I've ever seen one from a west team. I might not have paid attention either.

Discussion: Major++

I do agree that classification is a problem. As you say in 65 most teams probably should be playing major. The reality is that there is probably only 3-4 m+ 65-70 and so one in the entire country.


In the 50's it can be easily fixed and again at worlds the best team doesn't always win.

So looking at teams in the 50s best I can tell there are 6 m+ in ca. There are 6 east of the Mississippi. A few more in other states in the west. Wa and AZ.

So if you let them pick up from east/west there would be a lot more parody in performance level of play. There is many good players in the east that could play m+ but no teams within there borders. Pick ups are generally the best players in the country. Leaving really good players playing down.


One thing I have noticed in the past that many m and m+ champions came from the west and many of the aa and aaa champions came from the east I think that is because with so many small states teams with great players just continue to play together instead of the hassle of traveling alone to get on better teams or moving up to play less teams.
