Discussion: SPA v SSUSA

I was not there but was well aware of the situation. I have talked to several SPA players and not found anyone who agrees with the ruling to allow this to happen. A rule book is useless if the organization allows a violation like this to a clear black and white rule. Would be different if the problem was real and say team A could only find 9 players in their home state and the border states and needed to come further to field a team. Not the case here. Team A has a 19-20 man roster and it just so happens the players in violation are major players.
I just want the border states rule abolished so everybody is on an equal playing field or I want it enforced as written so everybody is on an equal playing field. Exceptions for one team or certain players tends to make one think of the ole backroom deal being done and when you then have to face this team it leaves a sour taste in the mouth. We all spend our money to come play these tournaments and playing for second place is not the desired outcome

Discussion: SPA v SSUSA

SSUSA enforces their rules as written and SPA seems to make deals with certain teams/players i.e. the border states rule. In case none of you know it a state of 2.5 million people,Mississippi, doesn't exist according to SPA. So if Mississippi is one of yours teams border states you can just skip over it and grab players from the next state over. Something is rotten in Denmark!!!

I love playing tournaments under both organizations and both are good onsite with management.

My one suggestion. For the awards give the guys a T-shirt rather than a plaque or china made plastic coffee mug

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Reebok bats on Amazon.com

I recently bought one of these off of Amazon. It has to be a knockoff. It had the ding of a metal bat. Out of the wrapper it was terrible. Compared to my U2 it was probably 30-40 feet shorter on a well hit flyball. I returned it for a refund. I have never hit a Reebok legend but it just didn't hit or feel like a composite bat--hope this helps
