Hey Staks! I'm easy to catch, Billy C is way ahead and Toot is out of my reach! Wish I was still living in Virginia and playing with all you guys on a regular basis.

I see they actually do not play an "if" game. I prefer the way we do it in slow pitch much better. We have a true champion since all other teams have (at least) 2 losses.

So, if South Korea beats Panama they will each have one loss and be 1 and 1 against each other. When would the "if" game be played or do they skip that for some reason?

Discussion: teams going to aggieland...in college station,tx

The Silver Streaks got our game times for Thursday but we have no idea how many teams are in our age bracket nor who they are. Clicking on the Texas Half Century link - as directed - provides absolutely no information about this tournament.

Bob, the Silver Streaks will be there. The tournament is only scheduled for Thursday and Friday.
Since Sacramento is not running this one, there will probably be precious little information disseminated about teams and schedules on this site under the tournament detail.

Discussion: TX STATE CHAMPIONSHIP-TOC QUALIFIER

Well Bob, we don't want us oldsters playing too many games in one day (that's what the company line is selling).
HOWEVER, in the 65 Majors (3 teams) one of the three teams will have to play 4 games between 8AM and 3:30PM on Thursday. Looks like the temps are forecast to be in the mid nineties. So much for that...

Bruce,
Seriously...in slow pitch guys step out and adjust their gloves after every pitch?
Is Mike (the human rain delay) Hargrove now playing Senior softball??

Discussion: heart of texas tourney starting may 19th

I checked the Texas Half Century website and there is no information about this tournament (which starts Thursday) that I can locate. It appears little to no information is being disseminated about any of the 2016 scheduled SSUSA-partnered tournaments.

Discussion: legal age

JackZ_SLC based on my personal experience that has not been the case in Senior softball. I started playing 50s in 1996 and played the entire season at age 49. I did not turn 50 until November 12, 1996.

Discussion: Batting Average or On Base Percentage

Alan, I could not agree with you more. I have managed teams and use only OBP for the reasons you mention.
In addition to considering defense as well, at our age (65-70), I also would consider those who run for others in the equation. Guys who play the outfield and do a lot of extra sub running I value highly.
In any case, selections should not be based SOLELY on OBP in my opinion.

Discussion: illegally batted ball

I don't think the rule means you have to swing from the heels...I've seen many players just dump the ball over the infield. I've done it many times myself. I call it "place hitting".

Discussion: Words of Wisdom

Gary, I could not agree more.
I pitch a lot in batting practice and I would not pitch without my screen. In fact, yesterday we were hitting and I hit a good friend of mine in the eyebrow (ball actually deflected off his hat) because he was not completely behind the screen. Thankfully, he told me this morning that the doctor said he should be OK but he did need several stiches. It was awful looking and scared me to death. He was calmer than I was.

Perhaps the Senior Volleyball League should look at placing screens behind players so they won't have to worry about head shots?

Discussion: New Rules

The new rule I find most interesting from where I sit (70s) is the Mixed Bracket Equalizer where:

"In tournament play where there are mixed brackets, defined as teams in different rating groups where one team is giving an equalizer, the team giving the equalizer shall be the Home team in all such games."

Our 65 Major team rarely plays a team at the same rating level in area tournaments, so we almost always give an equalizer and play by the lower rated teams' home run rule (which by the way hardly ever causes us difficulty since we done hit many anyway). It is nice to know that now we will get to be home team without the coin toss!

Discussion: New Rules

Actually, from my reading, the teams not being able to play down rule only applies to the 40s thru 65s. It does not apply to age groups 70 and higher.
