What's the highest level you ever playe


What's the highest level you ever playe

My coach told me when i was 8 that only a, well let's just say a "nincompoop" instead of the slur he used would come out of a game in pain. Basically, break a leg! Literally...

That's before i smashed my hand to smithereens on a base. Ump tossed the jacka$$ when he forced me to stay in the game and run. I **** you not. This **** used to happen, people.

Anyway, I'd like to know your experience playing baseball throughout your life.

Re: What's the highest level you ever p

Started on my High School team my last 3 years and played a year of American Legion ball afterwards. Played OF, 1B, 2B.

Re: What's the highest level you ever p

Played a couple years in the Manitoba Senior Baseball League (not senior as in old men, but senior as in adult) when I was 19 and 20. But that was after I dislocated my shoulder in high school and my throwing was never the same. Decent average, good eye at the plate, no power though. Haven't played since then. Miss it alot!

Re: Re: What's the highest level you ev

Just little league for me until about age 14. Then wrestling took over my life and was a 4 season sport for me. Played 2nd and 3rd. Absolutely no plate discipline but boy was I good at stealing bases lol

Re: What's the highest level you ev

Played LL, teeners up through H.S., some Legion ball. What I lacked in power and hitting for high average, I made up for with a hell of a glove (nothing got by me in CF), speed, plate discipline (in 13-yr old ball, I only had 2 hits in 4 official AB in 52 plate appearances. I had 47 walks and a sac fly. Lol) and an arm.

I pitched, and it didn't take long to realize that movement, painting the corners and changing speeds were going to help me far more than natural velocity. I don't think I ever broke 75 mph. Haha

Lol similar to Jay. Played through high school, not sure i ever hit anything more than a double. A bunch of oppo singles to right field and walks. Loved playing shortstop and had a pretty good glove imo. Also loved pitching, never broke 75 mph but had a heck of a curveball

Re: What's the highest level you ev

I played through age 14. It turns out all of my Wiffleball practice didn't help me on the diamond.
The next two years, I was the scorekeeper and statistician for my father's team. I was much better with the book.

Re: Re: What's the highest level you ev

I play at the Major Level in USSSA.

Re: What's the highest level you ev

But... are you a pitcher or a belly itcher?

I think one time years ago, when I ate a piece of a magic mushroom, I may have reached Nirvana while listening to Frank Zappa, does that count?

I played in the equivalent to little league in Canada and then competitive senior ball in Ontario followed later by a over 30s league where I won a batting title. I was a 2B/CF, switching hitting lead off man. Good eye, high average, speedy and absolutely no power. Set my little leagues record for HBP because I was a smaller crouch hitter who crowded the plate. lol ... those were the days.

Re: What's the highest level you ever p

I remember playing defensive end and I looped around the outside to rush the qb,our other de did the same we had the qb in our crosshairsnat the last second he tok a step back me and my teammate collided with each other and I saw the whole galaxy,coach said to shake it off becuz that's what you want to do after a blow to the head lol

Re: Re: What's the highest level you ev

I know that story is about football but it just shows how stupid and uninformed people were in the 70s and 80s,and don't get me started about the coaches that would deny you water

Re: What's the highest level you ever p

I played from 5- 16. Pitched or played 1B or OF. Won 2 championships in my baseball career. At 16 I had 3 teams looking at me, KC A's, Seattle Pilots and MN Twins. I found women and partying. That was over. I went to a White Sox open tryout at 20. Threw 88 without any practice, wasn't anywhere consistently around the plate. There were 4000 people there and 4 went to the minors.

After that it was softball for 15 yrs until I tore up my knee sliding into home in the spring league. Didn't play until the following year in the fall league. In like the 5th game got in a collision driving for a ball in short right center, broke 3 ribs.

Then I took up golf.
