Discussion: Introducing the latest technology

Wow another bat for us OLD guys to try!!! I'm sure I'll get me one.... Webbie I love your Motivation for pumping up the guys and making them think they will be a better hitter if they purchase this bat! Great Sales Pitch!!!

Just remember OLD MEN, If you can't Hit a softball on a consistence bases now, what makes you think you'll be a better hitter just because there's a curve in the BAT? "Its not the BAT its the BATTER".

I know Alan & Webbie to be Outstanding Men, but I guess the LOVE for NEW Toys will keep our interest in the new Technology! Please purchase this bat, knowing that it will NOT increase your production at the plate...WE ARE WHO WE SAID WE ARE!

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: New rule

The rule will make teams and pitchers chose if they want to play in SSUSA events....Our team has already decided to limit the tournaments sanctioned bye SSUSA to 2 0r 3 in 2014,as compare to the 6-10 we've played in the past....My experience has been, the more gear a pitcher wears, the more guys WON"T have a problem hitting the middle, they won't do it on purpose, but if they do, they won't feel bad cause he's wearing protection gear! IMO SSUSA should have done a players vote for this rule change or at least a survey...Once they see the $$$ going down, they'll change their thinking on this rule!
JBTexas makes a great point, the mask does limits your view of the ball coming off the bat....My question to SSUSA is, why would you even bring this rule into play? How many pitchers have complained that this was needed? I see more infielders getting hurt from bad hops from poor field conditions then pitchers getting hurt with balls hit up the middle....If you really want to protect pitcher, GET THE RUBBERS REMOVED FROM ALL fields, they are more dangerous then Hitters hitting the middle!

Discussion: SSUSA AND SPA MEETINGS

I would like SSUSA to make any division with less than 4 teams enter, to make that tournament a 2-day tourney instead of the current 3-day tourney, it just makes no cent for teams to travel out of town & make them play their games over 3 days!!!

Discussion: Performance Formula

Everyone and I mean everyone should STAY AWAY from any BASA EVENT.....The director is Authur Drake and he is a THIEF, SCAMMER and just a bad human being, he will have a painful deaf!!!! BASA has screwed so many teams over the years, it's just sad that they are still in business!!!
I could go on & on, but I'm sure you guys get my point!!!! Crump understands what I'm talking about!

Discussion: How did SSUSA decide which Division had teams shorted to four gg?

Tim.....I will answer your questions as I did earlier in the thread.....

FROM THE MOUTH OF SSUSA DIRECTOR!!!! SSUSA WILL NEVER CATER TO A GROUP OF PLAYERS THAT DON'T MAKE THEM $$$$$$ that means as far as Major + & the Women's divisions are concern! From a business stand point, their correct!

Remember SSUSA doesn't need the Major + the Major + Players need SSUSA, if we want to play!
Since we pay the same fees as the other divisions, you would think it would be different!

Mike you & I will have to agree to disagree on this one!

This is a hobby for the players, if it was business, I'm sure we would take our $$$ somewhere else.

It would really be nice to have a choice, but ASA is weak on the west coast & usssa won't allow Senior Bats they also want to have a screen on the field....

So Tim what can 1 of 200 players nation wide do???? Stay home on the weekends & play with MOMMA??....lol

Jawood,
Taking into account the time limits, then we only played 3 games…….The director will never be fired!!! Management has his back!!!
To me, the only way to fix this, is a team limit…1st 400 team entered get in, we only have a limited # of fields to handle 400 teams…or if you want more teams, spread the tournament out over the entire month… All Major + divisions 1 weekend, Majors the next weekend, AAA following, then AA….make all seeding games 65-70 minutes…Bracket games 7 innings, that way everyone gets what they pay for!! SSUSA still get all their money & Us Players get to play!!! Just my 2 cents!

Tim,
This happen to my team Rated...We were told that because of the league that plays at Sunset Park all games had to be completed bye 3pm....however we were also told that because of all the extra 40 teams there ,that need to play, is another reason for the cut in our games....They cut the ladies games to 5 innings because they had no lights!!! We played 2 games Friday, 1 Saturday & 1 Sunday.....Now the killer, I over heard 1 director say SSUSA will NEVER FIX MAJOR PLUS because we don't make them $$$$$$$$$$$.....They said that with only 200 players Nation wide their only job is to give the + players somewhere to play!!! Not cater to them, they said the same goes for the Women divisions.......Looks like only AA, AAA & Majors get the LOVE!!!!

Discussion: Yellow Combat MM Gear vs Blue MM Gear

Double , Michigan & Goater I think you guys may be the only guys who likes this bat.....When the blue 1st came out there was conversation about Yellow verse the blue & the vote wasn't even close in regards to performance.(YELLOW WINS HANDS DOWN)..I'm glad you guys found a good one!!!

Swing & I have been greaty disappointed in the Blue MM and all I swing is Combats, so I'm a big Fan of Combats! I have one of each, Gray De BomB, White & Black Centerian, Red dirty, & the last Yellow MM They ALL out preformed the Blue MM.....I guess from Combat's standpoint, they can have 1 Boo Boo out of the group.....lol

Discussion: Major Plus

Corky,
How many years has this conversation been taking place? Has anything changed? Beside the HR rule being a walk! I understand you’re an employee of SSUSA & have to take their side & I’m sure there are plenty of guys on the AA & AAA level that know how to play the game……This was about the Major + division!! However my point being that the more talented players play in the Majors & Major + divisions & their concerns for the game seems to fall on deaf ears when it comes to their needs or wants……We all understand this is a business for you & yours & that the revenue is generated from the lowers divisions…….Therefore, I stand by my statement!! Sorry if you or anyone else was offended or perceived I was generalizing....

Discussion: Championship Sunday

Hey Dave,
Thank you so much for your answers……”My thinking on this, wasn’t from a better playing field site” I was looking at it from an expense side, as well bring all the Champions to one site for the Championship Sunday Celebration!
I think it’s worth a try!….I also think more teams would rather play more games on Saturday and or go home Saturday Night (if they must be eliminated’)verses Sunday Morning & then going back to the Hotel to check-out, etc etc… Okay let’s take Reno Sparks 5 fields, 50,’s 55’s & 60’s all playing this weekend. You could have moved all Sunday games there, (leagues games on Saturday’s should not IMO be agreed too in the contract for theses SSUSA out of town events) thus allowing longer play on Saturdays! You still bring back the top 3 teams in each division on Sunday & all winners can enjoy their day together & still make their travel commitments! Win Win….lol
Swing, see you at Cal cup!

Discussion: Championship Sunday

Is there’s a tournament format where ALL teams that make it to Sunday would be able to play their finishing games at the most desirable fields for that tourney?
I know like the Vegas worlds, there would be too many teams to do this… But Everyone likes playing at Field of Dreams would it be possible to have most divisions finish there on Sunday?…..IMO Reno would be a great tourney to try this Out! All Sunday teams for all divisions, could play their Championships games at Sparks, Wouldn’nt that save SSUSA on field expenses + other expenses?
everyone will all be at one park on championship Sunday

Hey Dan,

It’s my understanding from Steve that he’s going to keep his promise & make everyone whole that was still owed a GSC bat…Is this still the case & if so, when should we expect a delivery? (for those that won’t be in Reno)

Ok since it looks like we won't see one another until Vegas World,Remember our BET! We may make the Western Nationals in Sac....But we may not because we're playing the SPA World 2 weeks prior & Guys are already saying it's TOO DAM HOT to play a tourney in Sacramento in Aug.
I have a Dirty, nice Bat has a little pop, don't know how durable it is!! I'm only 6'2 220 I can only swing a 26oz....I'll leave that heavy lumber to you BIG GUYS like SWING! LMAO..Out of the entire Combat line my favorite is still the OLD "GRAY DA BOMB" All I swing is Combats!
