imp, would you rather have had a postponement at game time and done the trip next weekend at additional hotel, meal, and travel expense? Or, perhaps hold it over till Monday and Tues when better weather is expected! NHRA is doing just that in Atlanta (Commerce) today with a much larger event. You have to deal with the hand your dealt. Mother nature doesn't always go our way.
I have found the directors do the best they can with the circumstances dealt to them. They are never going to please everyone.

Discussion: Pitching masks revisited

Based on the increased number of middle shots I've seen this year in 70 Major+, I can only assume it's because the pitchers are now "protected"; that's the only difference in the game from previous years.

Discussion: Pitching masks revisited

Agree with Duke. I've been hit more this year than ever in the past without a helmet.
My take though is a lot more guys are going middle because now the pitchers are wearing protection, helmet seems to have OK'd the idea that the middle is open! Played against my former team (aged up) at the Spring Worlds and took 3 direct blows from friends. Like Duke, no head shots. Reaction is slower with helmet, getting older doesn't help either.
Some of the new middle-shooters are stronger hitters than some of the guys that went middle in the past. Number of opportunities to be hit has risen greatly.

Discussion: Looking for a 55 or 60 team

Ken is the "real deal." If you are in need of an outfielder or just want to improve the outfield you have, you need to take a look at this guy. When I played with him in Palm Springs, Ken had all the tools. great team mate.

Discussion: SCSSA 1st Annual Wounded Warrior Project Benifit Tournament - Mach 8-9 Hemet, CA

Hoping you raise a lot of money for our often ignored hero's.
Bill O'Reilly has done a fantastic job bringing attention to, and raising a lot of money our warriors for the purchase of track chairs.
A tip of the hat to guys like O'Reilly for helping these guys, a tip of the hat to you also for the part you are doing.

Discussion: CERTAIN FEES!!

Duke, please share with us the breakdown of fee allocation. Is there an excess amount of profit left over because things are so much cheaper in CA?
If so, then I think you have an issue.

If your team is planning on traveling and is concerned with the $350 budget for entry fees, I'd avoid the following:
The Chili Pepper Classic
1st State Spring Classic
Milwaukie Classic
Heart of Texas
Cornbelt Classic
CT Masters Games
Quad Cities Classic
AZ Western States
Aggieland Classic
Badger classic
Labor Day Classic
and the Last Chance qualifier.
(all these are over $350, with 5 @ $400 and higher)

You have the same choice as everyone else, if you don't like or enjoy the tournament, don't support it. If enough of you in SoCal do not support them, I'm confident the tourneys would fold. Thank you for letting us know your thoughts on how Top Gun runs their tournaments. I'd assume you'll give us an update after you play there this weekend on how it was run this year.

Ed, any truth to the rumors that Reebok is going to pull the plug on bat making, or at least manufacturing of the Melee? Thanks.

Discussion: Boombah Turf shoes

I've worn Reebok Turfs for the past 3 seasons. Love them. Good traction, lasted great length of time, and extremely comfortable. (I have not played a lot of outfield in them, on the dirt 95% of the time.) Have always found them at good prices. Thumbs up!

Discussion: ssusa card

You do realize once Sacramento gets your money, their computer print out for any tournament you enter will show that you have paid. Card just keeps you from having to use other I.D., you won't miss any ball without the card.

Discussion: Las Vegas Fields and Umpires

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.

Discussion: Las Vegas Fields and Umpires

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.
