Great test for pitching under adverse conditions; does the big wind ever stop blowing in Bullhead City?

tattooball,not sure where you were referring to at 4400 ft. above sea level, but it's not Las Vegas.
We're 2100+ feet at the airport with a high of just under 2500 ft in Henderson, south of Vegas.

Discussion: Grading the Rule Changes

Omar, guess it's just a difference in opinion. No matter what the rules are, there will be a variety of ideas about what's right for the game. Our opinions just differ on base distance.

The 70's 3rd basemen you know shouldn't have any gripe about a larger 5-6 hole, 70's get an extra fielder and the 5-6 hole is almost gone!

I'm not sure what level the 70's you know play at, nor their overall physical condition, but so far, the guys I've seen at tournaments still have a high level of game. They have brought to the 70's a very elevated skill level quite frankly that wasn't there 5-10 years ago. As far as not being able to hit holes or gaps, I have not seen that problem at all. In fact, quite the opposite, they can hit well.

Pricer, one way the baserunner will have a split second longer to react to the line drive hit at him while he is on base.

Omar,my 70's team doesn't mind the 70' bases at all. It's makes for a better game. I personally love the rule change. The other rule change that I also like very much is the pitcher being allowed to pitch from 60', this added distance will allow the pitcher to be back a little further and have a safer chance of making a difference defensively. Overall grade------A.

Wood, you are right bud.

What age group? We have several teams here you could probably fit in.

Discussion: Thoughts for the upcoming SSUSA Rules Committee meeting!

There's no way Major+ champs should or will be dispersed, it just doesn't make sense. I can see 70' bases, possibly less HR's and runs per innings to speed up the games, and not much else. No way the screen is put in play, not yet anyway. Senior bats are a no brainer, they'll stay also.

Discussion: pitching screens

Perhaps because Ray (DeMarini) was from Portland, the Pacific NW was loaded with his bats. They never did cost $300, they were $250, $51 higher than todays composites at list price.
In the Pacific NW, the umpires wouldn't allow a dented bat. They thought it was easier to hit if the bat had a flat spot!

Omar, the DeMarini bats of years past cost us more than the composites do today. And, they didn't last as long as the composites I've purchased, they dented very easily...............

"beantown", we're a new team for 2013' and registered as a Major Plus. You can register higher than AAA, but not lower.
I'm sure Sacramento will look at new team rosters to make sure they are classified at a level proportional with player ratings from previous season.

Discussion: 70' bases at Las Vegas

Webbie, maybe not true in 65 and 70. From what I gather, my 65 team mates prefer 70' bases. It's a better game,gives defense a better shot, and easier to get in 7 innings. I personally like 70'

Now he's on football! Wouldn't matter what the dimensions were, he hasn't been to a Super Bowl for either league ever, and most likely has no plans to attend.

I'll bet lowering the mound and the DH really chapped his butt. He's probably still calling the NBA over the 3-point line addition.

I've had Miken replace several over the past few years. All broke with very few swings on them. All appeared new out of the wrapper, and I had a receipt for each. although I've switched to the Ambush, I had no problem with Mikens service.

Discussion: SSUSA Thanks for a great weekend

Robo2, ditto for me! I worked as an LVSSA Co-Director at the Doc Romeo fields. There were a vast number of great teams in that division and provided us with some fantastic softball games. Enjoyed very much chatting with the ENR guys, a super bunch of guys. (and yes, they can play also!) Thanks and congrats, job very well done.

Discussion: Is SSUSA trying to go too far?

Is this the proper thread to propose that, fittingly, Cheyenne Park in Vegas be renamed G19 Fields? What do think Webbie? (Nice meeting you by the way. You had a super tourney. Always a pleasure to put faes with board names.)

Discussion: SSUSA ID CARD question

When you register in Phoenix, SSUSA will know that you have applied for an updated card. As in other tourneys, if you've already applied, you will be allowed to partisipate without a card............
