Shout out to folks providing advice. Had left TKR Tuesday, back home last night. Getting that nerve block prior to surgery was indeed a godsend,as now that it's worn off I realize the pain relief break it offered. PT guy already coming to house today..not looking fwd to intentionally inflicted pain, but that's the deal to get back to the game. Doing ice, elevation,etc. I will update May 01. Tku everyone, George

Tku to all, good advice to plan with. I tend to be an impatient and aggressive individual,more apt to be my own worst enemy and overdo myself. But I am also disciplined,so appears best to rehab in earnest,but work myself back onto the field little more slowly,for safety sake. I can take some BP and be scorekeeper for awhile. George

Hello everyone..gotta get this procedure done soon. Been doing prep work over last year (lost wt,pt exercises,etc) to help my rehab period go smooth,and shorten the transition period back onto the ball field. To those of you that have gone thru this experience...what sage advice could you offer up? Maybe something you wish someone had informed you about, either before or after your operation, that would have been helpful to be made aware of? I'm 71 male in good physical condition,just need to get my left tie rod repaired. Thanks folks,george

Discussion: Player releases

As I read this,no official release is required by team A in order for player to augment a same age/rating roster that needs help. A 1 time exemption is granted for that player, when a written request is received at SSUSA,to help a team that has a documented roster shortage for a particular sanctioned USSSA event. That player remains on his/her original roster after event is completed, and cannot do again for remainder of season, unless of course released by original team. This sound good Dave??? Tku George

Okie dokie..that 1 time same age group exemption upon approval,to help fill an undermanned roster,is good. When a 70 AAA fills in on a 65 AAA roster on a temporary basis,is that also a 1 time exemption? Tku george

Hello folks..as I read that inquiry, can player switch to team b and play in tournament, without being officially released by team a? As I read the rule, player would then be locked into team b for rest of season. Good rule to have to prevent "for-hire" situations. Tku george

Discussion: Best pitcher shingaurds

I picked up cheap pair of soccer shinguards for when I play infield. They protect my lower leg well, as I tend to position myself directly behind a batted ball to knock it down. I leave them on the entire game, and don't even feel them when I'm running the baseplate. George

Discussion: Player rating

If a 70aaa player's team does not enter a tournament, and that player would like to participate,but not on another 70aaa roster, what would be the options? Can he play down on 65+? Would his player rating be changed based on success of temporary 65+ team? Tku for input,geo.

Discussion: Surgery & playing after

Dqmtv..here is how I am handling similar situation. Last Dec,during my annual physical, complained to my doctor of left knee pain. Xray showed moderate/severe arthritis..10 yrs prior had surgery to repair torn meniscus. I mentioned knee replacement surgery to correct the problem, but he also balked at this quick solution. He said " not so fast",we have prep work to do before we arrive at that point. He prescribed physical therapy,wt loss,pain meds,etc. So,I've been working hard to get ready for my ortho appt. Yes seems to be the positive outcome of a knee replacement has a lot to do with prep work. Meanwhile I've continued playing softball 3x/wk thru the pain,and some days were real tough. I am looking fwd to corrective knee surgery,will be ready for it when necessary,and expect a reasonable recovery period of about 3-4 months. My online research indicates knee replacements last about 15-20 yrs,depending on degree of usage. I will play with the pain until I can no longer,then get the problem resolved. I'm 70, 192 pds,5'8"" play outfield/infield. Tku geo

Mck71..does that apply to an individual also? If they have a good individual performance,but their team tanks,will they get their individual player rating boosted? Tku george

Miken ultra hit well for me. After using team's 27 oz last year, and it's apparent durability over time, I purchased same model at 28 oz. Have 1 bal, 1 end. Use both in game/bp and they stand up well. 70yr old lead off line drive hitter.

Discussion: Player tournament eligibility

70+ AAA reside in RI. What teams would I be qualified to play on for "qualifier tournaments?". Willing to travel anywhere outside my region, but teams are restricted it seems as to who they may carry on their roster. Trying to lock up a travel team, would be most helpful knowing where to start. Tku Geo
