Discussion: Mobile Qualifier

The full schedule including seeding and bracket times was sent to coaches on March 23rd.

In the case of Affinity Elevator the email was sent to the address given to SSUSA that begins with "CoachBubba7@"

It was later sent to the email given in your response.

Hello Folks-

My phone is ringing and my email is pinging today with questions about the schedule. I am working on it now and should have it completed this evening.

The schedule (version 2.0) was completed last night but we had a team drop out today. So, back to the drawing board.

COACHES will receive a copy of the schedule shortly. It would be greatly appreciated if you could check with your coaches for start times rather than pingning me. I will get everything out ASAP.

For hotel planning purposes, everyone should assume an 8am start both days...


Thanks in advance-

Tim McElroy
TD- Mobile Qualifier.

Hello Chris & Ken. It will be good to catch up with you in Loudoun.

Side note- I am trying to get the 40s program going here in the East with a goal of someday rivaling the strong program out west.

Superior 40+ men's team will be in Loudoun. Others?

I talked to the park superintendent this morning and heard some great news. They have made some improvements at Potomack Lakes Sports Complex. Included are parking lot improvements, new walkways, new dugouts and an improved irrigation system.

Potomack Lakes and Phillip Bolen Park are great facilities. So let's get a roll call going for the May tournament in Loudoun County?


For that matter, who is going back for the new Last Chance tournament at the end of August?

GREAT WEEK OF SOFTBALL

Sure, there were a couple of glitches with the banquet, but I have never tried hosting a dinner for 2,100 people. Until I try pulling something of that size off, I won't say not a negative word about it.

Those in attendance heard from some truly inspirational people who have given so much for this country, and battle on.

If my meal was delayed a few minutes, I can look past that with ease.

THANK YOU SSUSA,
THANK YOU WOUNDED WARRIORS,
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HAS EVER SERVED.

65 AAA at Cape Coral complex-

1. Spicer Properties (MD)
2. Lake Wales Legends (FL)

Spicer won in the "if" game. There were 25 teams in the bracket, so this was a great turnout.

Wagon- I don't have the access required to post the completed brackets to this site. The actual brackets for S2 were sent back to Sacramento. Dave is working overtime to put PHX schedules together right now, but I'm sure they will get posted soon enough.


Bernie- my apologies for drawing a blank on the WC Thunder finish. Too many things happening at once yesterday, I guess. Congrats on a solid weekend.

Discussion: Pitching

I see two potentially different scenarios here:

1) If the pitcher had both feet outside of the pitcher's box before beginning his wind-up / delivery, we have "NO PITCH"
The umpire should immediately vocalize this call and put both arms in the air killing any subsequent action. Effectively, a ball was pitched during the suspension of play. (BruceAZ, if this is what your umpire witnessed in LV then it was the correct call).


2) If the pitcher began his wind-up / delivery with at least some portion of one foot inside the pitcher's box and ended with nothing in the box when the ball left his hand, then we have an "ILLEGAL PITCH"
The umpire should immediately vocalize this call and lift / extend his left arm out to the side (parallel to the ground). If a batter swings at an illegal pitch, then the result of the play stands.

I am not a member of the team, but do know that Houck's Construction (MD) is planning to attend SSUSA's TOC.

Discussion: DH

In Senior Softball, we have an EH (Extra Hitter) which allows a player to bat and play defense.

I dont have my rulebook in hand, but you would probably find the reference under "Players and Substitutes"

Discussion: Baserunner Retreating

JackZ_SLC

Section 8.3 of the SSUSA rulebook refers to the BATTER-RUNNER, which is different than a RUNNER.

BATTER-RUNNER is one that has completed his turn at bat, but has not yet been put out or reached first. At the moment the BATTER-RUNNER reaches 1st base he becomes a RUNNER.


This is how the rule WAS PREVIOUSLY WRITTEN (understanding the definition of Batter-Runner, it was technically correct)

BATTER-RUNNER IS OUT
H. When he moves back toward any base to avoid or delay a tag by a fielder. The ball is dead, the batter-runner is out and all runners return to the base occupied at the time of the pitch.


HOWEVER, the rulebook was cleaned up at the 2013 convention to reduce confusion on this point. The amended rule reads as follows:

8.3 BATTER-RUNNER IS OUT
H. When he moves backward toward home plate prior to reaching first base to avoid or delay a tag by a fielder. The ball is dead, the batter-runner is out and all runners return to the base occupied at the time of the pitch.


====================================================================
In the original post by OmahaChuck, the umpire incorrectly called the runner from 2nd out.

We should have had the batter-runner out at 1st base, and the runner who began the play on 1st now safe at 2nd base.



Hope this helps.
