If that be the case, it's another example of not being able to please everyone. By using the current format, those in very small divisions get the most teams possible; seems better than 2 out of 3 with the same team again! Are you suggesting teams have to play in more tournaments than just a qualifier? Perhaps like the ASA system of old.
As far as negative responses, looks like very few for the amount of games 480 teams play. Most people won't take the time for a positive comment, the angry person will for need of venting or future correcting. But, if you look at individual complaints, not that many from approx. 6750 players(15 per team).
If SSUSA wasn't working on growing problems, or trying to make the tournament better each year, I think then we should yell in mass. At present, that is not the case.

Sparky, as a many decade sponsor, I kind of understand some of your points thru your eyes. But, as far as the best teams came to Vegas, I looked thru the age groups and in my mind, I just don't see any of the national power house teams missing. It appears to me the best in the country were here to compete for the World Championship. I think most consider it THEE tournament to win. Please give me a few of the teams you feel were World Champion material that were missing from the teams entered list.

Graphite, stay home and play against who? How many potential World Champions do you have in your town? The best were here in Vegas.

As Lecak wrote, my wife had the same problem about 10 days ago, we live in Vegas, and she hasn't been to a softball game or a softball complex in several years.

I was told Ruth Realty was the winners bracket survivor waiting to see who they would play.
70 Major was Stark Street Pizza over Scrap Iron, and T-N-T won the 75 AA division. Both Stark Street Pizza and T-N-T are local Vegas teams.

Played for the last week at Shadow Rock and BLD. Fields were adequate, umpiring was good to very good, no problems. Early morning games made it a challenge for both teams, depending on where the sun was; but, that happens in all tourneys. We had the same situation last time in Hemet. Sun issues are part of the game.

Discussion: So, you don't wear pitching protective gear!!

Webbie, you are spot on. There is no reason to have the rubber out there. Stick, the lines for the pitching box are 3' in front of the rubber and 7' behind. There is no line at the rubber and it serves no purpose.

Congrats to Rickie, well deserved.
We also hear another true gentleman, Dave Barnes, has also been selected. Another great competitor, but better yet, a wonderful man. Way to go Dave....

65 Major Champs, 1st American who beat Tharaldsons, did move up. The core of that group went to 70 Major+. Tharaldsons also got moved back to 65 Major+ after a runner-up finish. Ruth was gone quite a bit earlier at the Worlds.

Fragile Senior bats in general don't like wet and heavy or just heavy balls. Cage balls are great way to ruin your bat, the balls are generally very heavy.
With 20 swings on it, send it back, I'd be surprised if they didn't warranty it.

kndkcook, don't have any of the things you are looking for, but must have played against your dad in the mid 80's. We traveled from Portland OR and played them in a big tourney in Modesto CA. Don't remember the guys, but very hard to forget team name, "Screw Magazine".
Good luck in your search for his memorabilia.
