Discussion: Reclassifying Teams

You need more Major+ teams....How about every team that recruits players from outside their state are Major+ ? It's hard to believe most areas of the country 'need' to go outside their state to field a team. If a team is picking up players from other states, their not doing it to be a AAA team.

Hitman: You need to talk to them. Preferably in person.

Gary: I believe you ment 'Speaking as a husband and the father of 3 girls.' I also believe Joncon ment girly as in feminine. I don't think it was a disparaging remark concerning a womans athletic ability.

It doesnt seem right....especially if the whole team wasnt involved in the vote.

Discussion: Home Runs

You know what the situation is when you step in the box. Hr for an out, you miss hit the ball. Hows that any different than crushing one right at someone? You hit it well, but you are out. If hitting one for an out is a consistent problem for your team, move up. The PPR rule isnt right (and I pitch) but in my opinion we should give the HR rule a try.

Discussion: DBO/PPR rule - still protecting nobody

There should be no one up rule. If you go over the limit, it should be an out. If your team
continually goes over the limit, move up, you can hit more Hrs. When you get in the batters box, you know what the situation is. If you hit it out for an out, you miss hit the ball. No different than hitting a rocket, right at someone. Pitchers need to field their positions. I dont know if either the HR rule (potentially more shots up the middle) or the DBO out rule (discouraging shots up the middle) is going to change that. Protective equipment and a 5th infielder are options.

Discussion: Seniors and Home Runs

What’s the big deal? If your team is consistently hitting more than 3 Hrs (AAA) a game, than move up. More than 5 Hrs (Major) a game, than move up. One up, than singles, just makes it easy to play down. If you are occasionally hitting a Hr for an out, how’s that any different than crushing one….right at someone? One suggestion I would like to offer, a little distance between the divisions. 1 Hr for AA. 4 Hrs for AAA. 8 Hrs for Major. 12 for Major +. Makes for a distinct line (much like Major to Major+ now) for all the classifications.

I pitch. To hell with the screen. I’m not for the DBO. You can get hit anytime. I don’t know if either the HR rule (potentially more shots up the middle) or the DBO out rule (discouraging shots up the middle) is going to change that. Protective
equipment is available. A 5th infielder is an option. It’s the pitchers responsibility to field their position.

The SSUSA is making an honest attempt to make the game more competitive
across the board. They should be applauded.

Discussion: NORTHEAST CHAMPIONSHIPS (Cape May, NJ) - Scores & Bracket Results

I'd like to echo Chuck's sentiments. This tournament was very well run. The ground crew had a lot of work to do, they were excellant. The site director (Dave) gave us number to call....with the questionable weather the communication was appreciated. The competition was good, it seemed every game came down to the open inning. You couldn't have run this any better. Thanks!

Discussion: York SSWC Tournament

We stayed at the Yorktowne Hotel. The rooms were great, the staff fantastic. We were a 5 minute walk to some lively bars and fine restaurants. The fields were a 2 minute drive away. Great complex. I can't speak about the other divisions but the 50 AAA, a competitive field. Sounds like the makings of a remarkable tournament. And it was memorable. To cancel the games (we found out at 6:30 Sunday morning) without making an attempt to make the fields playable is sinful. When the directors don't have plans in place to deal with rain in the Northeast in spring, well it's hard support, hard to justify returning to those tournaments.
