Discussion: Knee replacement

I had a partial in 2022 and my doctor gave no indication that its life expectancy or performance would be any different than a full. I'm told the recovery from a partial is "easier" than a full. I plan to get a full on my other knee in the next 12 months or so. I was under the impression that if a partial works than go with that, but others may disagree.

Discussion: shoes

I have never seen Salomon offer wides. Maybe I missed it, but even on their web site there does not appear to be wide sizes available. The Hoka Speedgoats do come in wide, although I would argue they are not as wide as other brands such as New Balance. But the Hokas are great.

Discussion: 50 Major Plus bracket issue

I am wondering if any consideration has been given to moving this entire tournament back to Phoenix? I know everyone loves going to Vegas, but my impression is that there are more fields (in better condition) in the Phoenix area than there are in Vegas. If I am wrong there someone can let me know.

I know it used to be in Phoenix and I remember a large selection of good quality fields. I haven't played in Phoenix in 10 years so maybe things have changed. But I wonder if this should be considered?

Discussion: Partial knee replacement

Senior24 - I had a partial on December 16th of 2021. I felt I was ready to play by the following May 1st. You may feel better sooner, but it is not advisable to get out there too soon just because it feels okay. In fact, my doctor suggested I wait 9 months. I waited 5.
As others have stated, the most important thing to focus on right after the surgery is range of motion. My advice is don't worry about strength - that will come in due time. Range of motion and having full flexibility will give you the best chance in the long run. They claim the range of motion must be established in the first 2-3 months, after that it gets more difficult.

Anyway, best of luck to you.

Discussion: TORN MENICUS

I had a very similar scenario, armiho211. After my initial meniscus tear I had some "cleanup" laser repair done to it by a sports medicine specialist - he told me the fix would be temporary and based on how active I was would determine how long it would last. I got 3 or 4 years out of it with minimal pain, then finally got a partial replacement done at age 64. Prior to the surgery, I too tried the gel shots and received no benefit at all from them. Again, the doctor had warned me "they don't work for everyone". I am very happy with the knee replacement results and its been a year and a half and have very little issue regarding that knee. I agree with webbie - Not perfect, but better than not playing. Best of luck.

Discussion: preferred method to clean "tacky" bats

I can also vouch for the clorox (or similar alcohol) wipes - they did bring the tacky substance back, while cleaning the bat off too. Definitely helped.

Discussion: 11 Players For 65 Brackets

With all due respect to Bruce303, having just played my first year of 65's, I think the extra fielder is warranted and a positive thing. Who wants to watch 5 ground singles up the middle every inning anyway? I hope it does not change.

Hey Nv.... I think they are actually called Rockadia Wide. I am familiar with them as I have a wide foot. I think you can still find them on some websites. Good luck.

Discussion: 3 and 1: Take the pitch or swing away?

You ALWAYS swing at a good pitch - regardless of the count! I tell people all the time - hit the first good pitch you get... you may not get another. Did you drive that 200 miles, or pay for a plane ticket, or hotel or rental car to get in the batters box and NOT SWING?? Thats why you play, isn't it?
Ive played with plenty of guys who always seem to wait until they get 2 strikes before swinging - I have never understood that. Be aggressive and hit the first good one. I think I swing at the first pitch about 70% of the time. And its worked for me.

Discussion: 2019 Adidas Red 2pc endload Melee durability...

DRB - the answer to your question is mostly dependent on how hard you hit the ball. I went thru a red melee in less than 200 swings. But it may have been a bad one. I had better success with the lime green end loaded version - close to 1,000 swings. I know guys who get 3-4 years out of the bat because they don't tend to hit it as hard as other people do. Overall, my opinion is once they get broken in, you have to be careful. Don't use them for BP would be my recomendation.

Discussion: Archie Gubler Fields

With all due respect I have to agree with the comments about how poor the fields were at Archie Gubler. I realize there are a lot of teams to accomodate and not all parks are the same, but this park was well below par for such a big tournament. There were bad hops on all the infields - our competition was affected just as much as we were, so there are no sour grapes there. The outfields were lumpy and soft - dangerous, actually. I hope the association will think twice about using that park again in the future. Thanks to all who helped put on the tournament. Much appreciated.

JB - you should check but I think you can add up to 2 players west of the Mississippi from the contiguous US now. Double check with the office in Sacramento, but they made an announcement a few months ago about being able to expand rosters beyond the connecting states. Good luck.

Discussion: schedule of game times at 60's Missouri open,june 6&7, won't ever play their again

Hate to ask but is anyone aware of any player or spectator who participated in this event who may have tested positive for Coronavirus since then? Not looking for names or team info or anything like that - just curious if all the social distancing procedures helped. If anyone has any info to share much appreciated.

Hi - would love to hear from guys who played in this tournament how things went in regards to the new regulations and guidelines around social distancing, mask wearing (or not), etc? How did it all go? were there any issues that popped up that caused anyone some heartache or concerns related to Covid-19?

Just curious what the experience was like for the participants. Thanks.

Discussion: Suncoast/Adidas bats

Was curious if anyone has any updates to share on the 13 inch end load Suncoast bat? Someone who I trust told me he had heard there were cases of the end caps popping off the 13 inch green end load bat - has anyone had this experience? Does anyone have a comparison of the 12 inch end load versus the 13 inch end load?
Thanks.

Discussion: Idea for next years worlds in Vegas (or any other large tourney)

We have seen the same thing, numerous times, that coop is presenting. 2 years ago we played the same team 3 times - once in pool and twice in the bracket, in a 30+ team field! It has happened to teams I play on multiple times. This year, our 2 pool games were with teams that were in the Rocky Mountain Nationals (same as us) just 30 days prior. They were from the same region as us.

Agree that everyone wants to play new/different teams. Having to play a team in your 2nd bracket game that you just played in pool the day before is no fun, regardless of who wins or loses. And I have been on teams where that has happened at least 3 or 4 times in the last 6 years or so. I'm all for anything that might help prevent that.

I can only imagine how difficult it is to run a tourney like this with all the teams. It's great to have this forum where we can express our opinions. Thanks.
