AAA 60's Aro was 3rd, Bay Supporter and Tanel played the title game. Bay will have to double dip Tanel to win.

Discussion: Round robin seeding

In regards to the post from SSUSA. We prefer to reward teams for shutting opponents down defensively rather than batting in the top of the 7th. The team giving up 5 runs because of who they are playing cannot shut a team down.
Yes I have seen games where 5 runs or less have been scored and I have seen seeding that was determined by one run. Why not remove the "gift" runs, if they make a differnce, when it comes to seeding.

And for the others out there that think we should stay home if we don't like it. That is not the point. We will continue to support SSUSA and all that they do. Sometimes even good things need to be tweaked a little bit.

Discussion: Round robin seeding

Just so there is no misunderstanding. I don't care what they call it I just want to make sure the playing field is level for ALL teams. This is probably not the first time this has happened to a team. I have no problem giving a lower classification team runs. You have to over come the 5 extra runs to win your game. But when they consider run against, you get dinged anyaway because you played the lower ranked team.

Discussion: Round robin seeding

JB you are correct their mistake. They are seeding games for the purpose of seeding teams based on win loss record, head to head and runs against. They call it a(2)game Round Robin. There should be a way to correct this before next week.

Well that is what is going happen at Westerns this year. 2 AAA teams out of an 11 team divison will be playing one AA team. As a result of this 2 AAA teams will received 5 runs against them before they even play.

Discussion: Round robin seeding

If you are playing in a round robin seeding game and you play a AA team and you are a AAA team you are at a disadvantage. Not because you have to give them 5 runs. It's because when they determine seeding it is based on head to head and then runs against. So you are punished ( can't think of a better word) for playing a lower divison team because when it comes to seeding you are already a plus 5 in the runs against before you even play.

Discussion: New HR rules

I think it's worth trying for a season to see if it cut down on up the middle shots when the Hr limit is reached. If a AAA player has the power to hit the long ball he shouldn't have to "change his swing or hit up the middle". You don't punish a golfer for hitting long of the tee. Some may say the long ball hitter should play Major. Some areas don't have Major teams.

There really are times when hitters don't "try" to hit it out and it happens.

Give it a try before you give up on it.

Discussion: make the call

We have also had this play. Touch third and just starting running home with the ball in hand. The runner either has the choice of being tagged out by you or once he pass the line he is forced out by an easy toss to the catcher.

Discussion: Bracket results

I noticed the order of finish was posted for all divisons, i.e top three. In the past we have been able to look at the entire bracket play. I would like to know how other teams from our area did and how teams that we beat or teams that beats us did. We played 60 AAA. How did R&R and Master Mauraders finish? They are both very good teams and both played Sunday winners bracket.

Discussion: Phoenix

Couldn't agree more. We played the late game on Friday. Got out of there about 10:30. Our game on Saturday didn't finish until after 11:00 PM. The winner (not us) had to play the following morning at 0800hrs. Maybe when we were older, early 20's, we could do this but were younger now (Byrds) and have a hard time. We played a team that started at 0730 and their last game started at 2230hrs.

Also there was water at the fields but at least one of the fountains in the dugouts did not work very well.

Very good umpires !

Discussion: Vegas 60's AA ?

Cabs,

Thanks for the clarification. I have never based anything on "rumors". The other rumor was Aro had the advantage because we are from the Washington State and were use to the heat!!! Wow it was hot .

Discussion: Vegas 60's AA ?

Couple of teams showed up at the Vegas Masters as 60 AA and got moved up after seeding games. One team from Tucson, Skate8 (?), scored 44 runs against a Aro Glass. Aro had to spot them 5 runs. The tournament directors move them and another team up to AAA for bracket play. Someone said they where the OTD team from AZ. OTD won Worlds last year as a AAA and are rated as a Major according to SSUSA. I don't know the team or if this is true or not. Anyone know the real story if there is one. Credit the directors for taking action.
