Webbie its a whole lot more difficult than access.

Lets take a state like Fl. People move there to retire and live life. There are recreation programs for everything and seniors participating in everything,
Ca,UT,Az and many other states are similar.

Look at the northeast. Virtually no recreation programs at all. Any leagues around are run by private entities and there is not that much participation.
From Boston to Philadelphia there are 3 tri state areas. People have to commute hours a day to work. By the time players are in their 40 they are done playing. What little free time they have is spent with family. There still is great players around they just wont play. Between 12- 14 hours days at work and commute they just don't want to. Then you say Tn, that is a wide state with a lot of wilderness in that entire region. They may have access to many states but it is tough to be a team when you have guys coming from all over many alone to become a team.

Take Ca tons of great players, tons of leagues, tons of tourneys. Several different associations to play covering the entire state. And its a different lifestyle that is conducive to being active in recreation programs.


In the north east there in an entire month in the summer that does not have a tournament to play in. We only have 8 months to play and April is hit or miss with rainouts as you saw on the message board and Oct you could play n a 70 degree day or a 40 degree day.

I disagree it is difficult to just put a major teams together on the east coast. I know of a major plus team that if they could get 2 more players and they are available could compete with JK easily. The problem is they have 2 pick ups already. Look from San Fran to La that would be 4 states on the easy coast. Back when they put these rules in Dan had players from Ca to Fl, Va and every where. These are best players in senior softball why not split the country. For last 10 years most of all the best m+ teams come from Ca.

Why wouldn't they address the real problem?

Take 2 identical maps. Cut Ca and adjoining states then flip the cutout over and place on the east coast. You will find that it is pretty close to east of the Mississippi. Allow the east and west to pick up anyone they like from east/west and no team will be dominate.


This sounds like our government just adding bs instead of fixing the real problem.

Fred the ak-mc-ss has been around since 2005, they are a synthetic version of the micro-cell not composite.

It's a business and the product is the game. You purchased a product that was not delivered.

If you bought softballs from our company and the container did not get delivered on time which is out of our control, we have no right to keep the money.

I know it is a tough situation on all sides and I'm sure the will be resolve to all of this, you just may have to be patient.

Discussion: Get rid of the 1-1 count

Really it's a pitchers game? They still throw a big yellow ball under hand at 20 mph, and we get to hit them with super bats at people and at great distances.

Maybe you would like a ball cannon so you will never make an out, just point and shoot. Come Monday morning you can brag how great you did at the water cooler competing in a great hobby.

Get rid of the composites and go back to a .47/525 then 0/0 count might be warranted.

Mt apologies to all I have offended.

Discussion: Today's "super" bats

HJ so the green and yellow are around .47/450 comp.
So my question is why would anyone want to hit a ball right at the dangerous limit. At an SI of 500 there is plenty of survivable room.

Discussion: Today's "super" bats

In relation to severity index, it is the combination of both cor/comp.

So raising the comp on a .52 would be safer than a .44/375 but its like saying a 357 mag is safer than a 44 mag.

Try the Tattoo NX3 .52/300 it will change you mind about all the bad things you believe about the .52 ball.

Discussion: Batting Practice Balls-- Evil BP balls (orange/white) vs Tattoo NX3 Balls (green/yellow)

Nice review, the NX3 balls never absorb moisture so you don't have to worry about hitting wet balls. The blue and yellow NX3's are great for cold weather hitting.

Its real simple guys, the multi layer balls are a 460 lbs core in a padded cover to fool the tester. Yes a composite will be better then a synthetic but the synthetic will still fly. Both the rock and the relabeled team 1 ball have been around since 2003. The team 1 ball was the ak-mc-375-ss

Dave you really need to brush up on your senior softball awareness. Senior players get better with age just like find wine, just ask we all tell you.

So much for the 2 buck chuck.

Discussion: Is it fair?

50 and 55 should be 1 division just like the 40's. There really isn't much drop in performance at that age level. most 50 teams have many players that are 55 legal.

From 60 to 65 you do see a big difference in running and fielding not so much at 50.

So merge them both let the teams play and rest the level by performance on the field, some major plus may be major.

This would also increase the amount of teams to play each weekend in the 50's.

50 on the east coast is DEAD. I'm 55 eligible and still can play 50 no problem.

Benji
If you do the research on the .52 ball you will see the exact opposite of what you claim. Severity Index impact numbers are at least 2/3 less than a .44 cor ball. All of the info has been published.

Exactly what did you invent? A poly core? Or a 2 color ball? Because a 2 color ball has been around long before you were and I wont finish this sentence I think most know how you got your start.

Jc there are many options for bp balls, the cor and compression can be altered to achieve the desired result with less impact to the bat. This results in longer lasting bats with very good performance on the field. We make 2 bp specific balls that are bat friendly. They both offer greatly reduced severity index impact yet fly as well or greater than there game play ball counterpart.

Bob are you drunk? Are you referring to the NX3. You can call 845 532 2668 for info, we have balls for .52 play or .44 that are safer on bats.
