There he goes again...
We just finished the culmination
of our vaunted NCSSA (NorCal) year.
Thanks to president Gary Tryhorn,
John Reedy, A.C. Linde, Noel Lanctot,
Pete D'Avignon and the rest
for a great year and a better event
at Big League Dreams in Manteca.
All you teams out there who are looking for a super
satisfying senior softball event
for next year, check out the NCSSA
Championships on your calendar
and make some plans.
For 30 bucks and the tournament fee
you can't go wrong.

Baden Fire balls, home run equalizer
at 1, 5 run limit innings,
HR's as singles,
we had a blast and finished 3rd
in a typically competitive event
playing against the Longhorns,
East Bay Oldies, MTC 50's,
No Dice and Crush from Santa Rosa.

In our championship game against
the LONGHORNS seven home runs were hit
in the entire game.
We had 4 and they, 3.
The score was 20 to 14.
Hell no.
No more than normal.
BIG FUN, you betcha!
Lively bats and balls forever.

Congrats to Kurt and Johny Hasna
and all the other horns for providing
a high standard of play for our competition.
Couldn't have had better preparation
going into LVSSA this weekend
with the MTC 55's.

Thanks to all who made Manteca
this weekend possible, all the players,
admins, umps, fans, families and friends
that make up our great senior softball community.
I'm looking forward to next year

Seven home runs in one game with lively bats. I thought that Miken IIs were banned in Manteca, so it must be other lively bats that einstein is talking about. With fences hovering around 320 feet and hot weather in the afternoon, it seems like home runs should be fewer. Maybe the Baden Fireball is too hot?

What you are referring to?

You missed the point again sir or madam.
We had fun, that's the point and the best 2 teams in NorCal only hit 7 home runs with the hottest bat/ball combo
of our calendar
while scoring only 20 to 14 runs.
Why don't you guys let us
play our game?
For whatever reasons,
you don't like lively bats and balls,
you say but don't act on,
fine, but we do, the most of us
do and want to and will continue
with or without you.
You're argument does you no justice
sir or madam or maybe it does.

Thanks, Curt.
You're the best and your Longhorns
have only gotten better and better
with each tournament
no small thanks to you and Johnny.
I think adding Mike Clary
was a terrific move for a bunch of reasons.

We played in almost ideal conditions
at BLD with Baden Fire Balls,
HR's as walks, 5 run innings
and equalizer HRs at 1
and no one got hurt and we had a blast
swinging senior bats.
Too gaudy, dangerous and cheap?
Hell, no.
Again, way to go NCSSA,
for keeping the faith and providing
a blue print for how most seniors
like to play our game.
Best of Luck in Vegas, Curt.
You're a great hitter,
made some terrific stops at 1st base
and are truly a class guy.
No one better than you
on or off the field.
