  1. I'm gonna chime in here because I've always been interested in Petes situation. IMHO, there is no question Pete Rose deserves to be, and should be, in the HOF. I don't care if baseball chooses to put a plaque by his name that states Pete Rose has stained his reputation by betting on baseball and that Pete broke the #1 rule in professional sports by gambling on his own sport. Acknowledge it, condemn him, criticize his actions? Hell, put it in flashing lights. I would understand. All this being said, I believe, and wouldn't have a problem with, their never letting him work "inside baseball" again (never coach again) because of his gambling. HOWEVER, this DOES NOT reflect his accomplishments as a hitter and you can not ignore what he did as a player. We are not talking about election into the Hall of Great People, or in the Hall of Honest Players, or Hall of Rules Followers. Was he or wasn't he one of the greatest hitters of all times? If yes then put him in. FULL DISCLOSURE, I am 65 yrs old and through the years my wife and I have attended 100's of MLB games. We're longtime Astro fans and through the years have been lucky enough to see some outstanding ball players and HOF'ers. Over the years there have been "teams" that we would always make sure we saw when they were in town but I can honestly say there are just a handful of players over the years that I bought a ticket with the sole propose of seeing that player. I never missed an opportunity to watch Pete Rose play baseball. Pete "willed" his teams to win. I've never seen another player like him. Put him in!
  2. DennyJones, I hear what you said and at one time in my life I believed the same way. However, all I can report on is what I've experienced. I have never hit a bad shot "due to my shoe" slipping. I too play 80% of my golf at the crack of dawn. Ground is covered in morning dew. Being in Texas I'm blessed in that I play golf year round but winters on the coast of Texas are always cold and wet but still playable. I'm telling you, I just don't slip. It's never a problem for me. I'll admit I'm not a monster hitter. I hit my 5 hybrid 155. My swing speed mid to upper 80's. The coast of Texas isn't exactly rolling terrain so maybe, certain landscapes and certain grasses might create some slipping issues in other parts of the country for some people. That being said, I've golfed in Texas, Las Vegas, Florida, Colorado, South Carolina, Louisiana, Kentucky and California and can not ever remember saying my spikeless shoes let me down. Try'em and you'll never look back. PS. . . Your greens will appreciate it.
  3. Hello all, my first posting but had to jump in. I'm 65 yrs old and since my retirement I golf an average 3-5 times a week. I went from soft spikes to spikeless shoes about 7 years ago and I will NEVER go back to soft spike. Go spikeless, you'll be glad you did. Simply go online to Amazon or the like and you have your pick of dozens of shoes under $100. I've had great results with FJ, Sketchers and Puma
