I agree with half of that. It is a great team. Not sure about the coach. Jeff, just kidding. I hope you are well and have a great holiday with family. Jim Perry

Discussion: You make the call - please

Webbie, I have always enjoyed your posts on this board and I have almost always agreed with what you have to say. That opinion changed today when you started your post with the words "Interesting Discussion" :). This is classic 'Beating a Dead Horse' and Turning2, you need to quit saying that you are not on here to argue. That's all you do and unless people totally agree with you, you keep coming back like a bad cold. There needs to be a separate board for BJ, Turning and Wayne to argue about random senior softball situations.

Discussion: Salem Results

Us old guys are always quick to jump on here and complain everytime SSUSA does something that gets our blood pressure to rise (literally) so I wanted to point out that our team played in Northwest Championship/Jim Sherman Memorial this past weekend. We were sent off to the little outpost of Albany 30 some miles from Salem, yes it was inconvenient especially on Friday but we got through it and American currency is accepted in Albany. Timber Linn was not in bad shape considering the recent heat wave here in the west. I know outfields were a bit choppy in places but fields in good shape for most part. Games were on time, umps were really nice and professional,TD was very approachable, competition was excellent (thanks Bend Dirt Dogs, ERI, Vanc Connect, and All Out for excellent games. We were fortunate enough to win the event and the prize package was fantastic, great shirts (no comments needed from the guys that claim they don't play for a shirt they play for pride, FYI-you can do both) Anyway awesome shirts and a beautiful plaque that we are dedicating to our sponsor who passed away about a year ago, Bob "BA" Allen. I would love to see more teams attend this event next year, thanks SSUSA for a very well run and fun event. Dave are field assignments and scores complete for next years event yet?

Discussion: Dont blame SSUSA for the ball problem.

Dave, I just saw your response. Yes, I did figure it was Albany Oregon :) I was hoping we were at Wallace Marine, but so be it. I am relieved to see that we are sticking with a "spherical, optic yellow' ball.

Hi Dave, not trying to pile on. Your last post references Albany for the Jim Sherman in addition to Salem. Albany is a long ways from Salem. When will teams know if they have to travel to Albany? Thank you for all you do for us. Jim Perry

Discussion: ROCK 'N RENO CHALLENGE...BRAVO !!

55 Major Rock n' Reno was awesome. Great complex, clean bathrooms, games on time, excellent umpiring in every game, TD returning texts with bracket play info so we didnt have to drive back, great competition. Everything about the event was top notch. Thanks Dave D, you are the man. Also if Ron was the UIC, you had an excellent crew working the 55 Major bracket. Very professional but also approachable, none made it about them, it was all about getting the calls correct and keeping the games moving. Cant wait until next year when 55M is back at Golden Eagle :)

Discussion: Polk County

How come when people go on here and attack the TDs and the TD comes back with a polite professional answer, the person very rarely comes back and apologizes or says 'Wow I feel stupid, sorry about that'. I seriously wonder what will happen to all these tourneys that occur every year when the people that run them finally decide that it is not worth the hassle or having to deal with all the complaining. People have every right to ask questions, I always question why it takes so long to get tourney results, and its a valid question. But it is possible to ask a question without coming across as a complete dick.

Discussion: Bracket Updates

You know things are returning to normal now that people are complaining about scores not being posted and SSUSA justifying it. I sure have missed that. Welcome back everybody!!!! Now I just need somebody to tell me they dont play tournaments to win T-shirts and/or their garage is filled with boxes of them then I know we have conquered COVID. Good luck everyone, enjoy the game.

I am so happy that this site is turning into an umpire pissing match message board. As soon as one subject gets beaten to death, then we just start a new one. So entertaining.

Discussion: Elite Sports jerseys

I don't think he (or she) is bitching or complaining, just asking for help or guidance on a message board, which is one of the main uses of a message board. Free shirts? Travel a team (assuming they traveled in) to Phoenix, stay in hotels, buy meals, rent cars, possible air line tickets, entry fee etc etc. No such thing as a free shirt in softball. I believe he is just trying to find out about the prize his team won. What is wrong with emailing someone during the holidays and asking a question? Is there a specific timeframe for this type of email? Some folks only have time to send emails during that time of year because they are on vacation. People ask questions on this board and then get blown up for asking. It kind of defeats the purpose of the board.

The man asked a simple question and gets blown up by everyone. And Stever, you need to read the fine print, serious. Senior softball is a great value but it's not 3 bucks a year.

Discussion: Running lane violation

What you should be sorry about is that 2 'grown' men turn most of the discussions on this board into name calling and a 'who's got the biggest dick contest' until SSUSA eventually has to shut down the post and the person who asked the original question never gets their answer. I am surprised that SSUSA gives either of you as much rope as they do, especially your 'crypronite' who seems to be able to say whatever he wants with no repercusions. The whole thing is both childish and annoying.

Thank you to SSUSA for getting the scores for the Winter Worlds on line. I also want to add that even the notion that SSUSA does not get up to date on technology is because they have chosen saving lives over the need for up to date scoring is so beyond ridiculous that is makes my head hurt. I am not an accountant, but I am going to wager to say that with what tournaments cost we could probably have AEDs and some modern technology. SSUSA, thank you for a great event in Phoenix, excellent field care, approachable TD, good umping etc. Thanks AZ Old School and Colorado Thunder for some great games. Your teams are total class acts.

Yes we were at CCP also. Very well run tournament. I would also like to point out the grounds crew that prepped the fields after every game all 3 days, never saw a bad hop all weekend. Bathrooms were constantly being cleaned also.

Discussion: Jim Sherman Northwest Championships

This past weekend our team, Doerflinger 55 Major, played the event in Salem and Albany Oregon. All games started on time, were very well officiated, fields were in great shape, bathrooms were very clean and competition was excellent. And all the scores are already on line. Great job SSUSA. Going forward, to make this an even better event, tell teams in advance if they are going to spend the first 2 days in Albany so we can stay down there. That is a long commute especially with the Salem traffic and there are RV parks right by the Albany fields that we would have used if we had known earlier. Water in the dugouts would be great, especially for us older guys. One more thing, 1st place prizes should have the name of the event. We play that tourney partially because Jim Sherman was one of our own and we want to honor him. When this event was first named after him the prizes included his name. Please go back to that. No one needs to come on here and say "we dont play for shirts" or tell me how many shirts they have packed away in their garage. I dont care. If you are going to name an event after someone, then their name should be on the prizes. Thank you Senior Softball for a very well run event and following up with scores posted of all games, Colorado Scrap Iron thank you for making the long trip up here, you guys are a class act. Thank you Traschels for giving us some really hard fought games, you guys also are a class act. It was a lot of fun. Best of luck to all the rest of season. Jim Perry

Discussion: Ruling

At one time I found the whole Nancy Allen, Wayne, BJ thing kind of funny. Now I find it extremely annoying and immature. Same thing over and over, debating rules, name calling, questioning of knowledge,explosion and thread closed. Ridiculous. Lets go back to debating why tourneys don't have real time results. At least that made sense. Sometimes.
