Discussion: Reno

Yes, I saw that on the tournaments page. I played for Legacy last year. But after moving from Kansas to Florida, my understanding is that I must now play with a + team east of the Mississippi. Just checking to see about some last minute changes.

Any 70 Major Plus teams east of the Mississippi need a player for Reno? Or a 70s Major team bordering Florida?

It is also important to see where the added weight is added to the bats. In the past, the added weight was added to the handle. I would think that the added weights were not added to the end loads, which are fairly standard. For instance, I have a Big Cat and I believe the end load is 1 oz. for all weights. Therefore, the extra weight would have to be added at another point on the bat. If that is the case,then the lightest weight would actually be the most endloaded.

Discussion: Bats

There is bit of a difference between this years Big Cat and the previous 2 years. This years apparently breaks in much slower. Mine has over 200 hits and it is still behind the previous years. Out of the wrapper it was a log, so you will be disappointed at first. Mine has just started to come around. The next 100 hits or so will tell the story. The '14 and '15 were two of the best recent bats ever made. I just hope they didn't screw up the performance for a bit of endurance, like they did with the ill fated Red endload about 4 years ago.

Discussion: Endload?

I agree. At least 225 swings. The 2016 model does not break in as easily as previous years. I have about 200 swings on my new Big Cat and it is no where near the 2014 or 2015. I just hope that it will finally get there. I was so disappointed today, that I pulled out my old red endload.

Foothills, My new Big Cat also seems to be a bit behind last years model. I love this bat, but the new model is very slow to break in. I'm wondering if they tried making it more durable at the expense of performance. Kind of like they tried with the red endload about 4 years ago. I'm wondering if they would replace it like they did with the redesigned red endload. I really don't care about durability. I want performance. Miken?

Discussion: Looking.

New to Florida. I have a Major Plus designation for 70 SSUSA, Major for SPA.
If I'm reading the rules correctly, I could play for any 70 Major Plus team east of the Mississippi for SSUSA. If there is a team that is looking, I would be interested in talking with you.

I would also rate Golden Eagle and BLD Vegas as the best. The fields in Henderson NV. are also really nice.

Discussion: seeking 65 Major or AAA... 3B 1B P. in KC area

There are 2 teams from the KC area that are AAA and play tournaments. The KC Kids/Renegades,and the KC Fire. If he is a resident of Kansas, he could also contact the Scrap Iron organization. A highly organized softball club that last year had 14 teams out of the Denver area, of all classes and age groups. All of the teams are good guys and monitor this board. Good luck

Discussion: New to Florida

Thanks Bruce. Been playing over at Exchange in a very competitive Tuesday night league. Almost all the guys are a fair bit younger. At least at this very early point, not found many competitive 70s teams in this area. Thought I might see what else was out there.

This may be a shade early for 2016. Just retired to the Pensacola area. Played for Scrap Iron Legacy from Colorado last year, Major Plus in SSUSA, Major in SPA, 70+. Looking for a new team in this region. Decent speed, fair glove, good power, good ave. 5'11", 200 lbs. not much fat. Looking for the right team. Legacy was great experience. Ron at 316-6559648.

Discussion: Hitting Before Games in Vegas

There are soccer fields just to the right of the complex. Usually a place to hit there. Some of the fields are rather irregular (hilly), but a place to hit nonetheless.

Discussion: Miken Big Cat

I'm on my second Big Cat endload. The first cracked earlier this season. I really like this bat. It seems to fit my swing better than most that I have used. If you have some power, and hit it on the screws, it will indeed fly.

Topic: Tournaments
Discussion: Team "Rankings"

I think this is a great idea. However, going from a great idea to actual reality is another story. It would have to be fairly objective. A lot of stats would have to be collected by the SSUSA staff, then fed into a computer to select the ratings. They probably would have to increase the staff to accommodate this information. I think the interest to attend certain tournys would go both ways. Some teams want to play the best in their division, some sandbag. In the end however, the best teams in each division are going to play each other. I agree it would be of interest to see which teams are doing what during the season.

Discussion: Which Sports Do More Americans Participate In?

I would agree with Nancy and Hombre. It is a "boomer sport". In Florida and the west coast, the participation is pretty high among seniors. Many former players are now doing other things with children and grandchildren instead of playing. In addition, many complexes now devote more tournaments to the girls fastpitch game because it is more lucrative. Tournament directors have told me that the girls fastpitch tournaments generate far more revenue than a senior tournament. More teams, more things bought by parents and grandparents. I do not think that the "hot senior bats" is contributing to any sort of decline in the game. Quite the contrary actually. I think the participation would be less if we had, say ASA bats. However, I would gladly go back to the double walls and 47/520 super blue dots.

I know this has been discussed before, but I can't seem to find the thread. What exactly is the "snow bird" rule and how does it work.
