Topic: Bats
Discussion: NEW Miken Senior bat (You might want to read this one !)

Here we go again,can someone just say (Miken) or who ever has just introduced a new senior bat or any other kind of (ISA, NSA, Usssa or ASA) bat and not say it's better or hits farther.

Guy's bats are rated either 98, 1.20 or 1.21 thats it. Nothing more, nothing less.

Can't go any further than the rating.

Let's stop all this nonsense of the new bats, they are just new models, thats all.

Discussion: new rule

Just read this new rule, don't really understand. Is the first offense game over or just an out:

§3.4(6) • PENALTY FOR USE OF AN ALTERED BAT OR SOFTBALL – Section title was changed and
section amended to establish the following penalty provisions for use of an altered softball: First
offense = Game forfeiture and any subsequent offense(s) in the same tournament = Tournament team
ejection and potential further suspension of team Manager at discretion of SSUSA. An altered softball
is deemed to be in play when the ball is in the pitcher’s possession and a batter is in the box – PASSED
9:1
§3.5 F. • OFFICIAL SOFTBALL – Subsection created to provide penalties for the introduction of a nonofficial
softball into play. First offense = the batter being called out and for any subsequent offense(s)
in the same game = an inning‐ending out. An non‐official softball is deemed to be in play when the ball
is in the pitcher’s possession and a batter is in the box – PASSED 9:1

Nancy, I don't know if you have ever umpired a game that I have played (maybe). As for my ejection what I said was that I heard the conversation between the home plate and first base umpire and they both said they did not get a confirmation of a runner being inserted to the game. So, when after the play, behind the fence I told the Director what I heard and said if tells you different he is lying, thats what got me ejected, never profanity or loudness. I have played this game for while, I understand we all make mistakes, but when someone makes a mistakes and is called out on them, this should not mean that an umpire has the right to throw someone out of a game. If you blow the call just say that's my call and warn the player and if he continues then eject, but with out a warning, I am sorry not correct.

Graphite you are 100% correct the Maryville fields where terrible and the umpires did not have a clue. For the first time in my senior softball playing years, i was ejected from a game. What is so funny about this I was not even on the playing field. I was speaking to the tournament director and asking him on a ruling, behind home plate.On a previous game I asked home plate umpire, when a ball is hit in the infield doesn't the runner have to step on the orange bag, his reply it's not my call. I asked who's call is it, he told me to play ball. WOW!!!!!


I think over all, senior softball needs to take a good look at the umpires they use, some of these guys are a bit to old to be umpiring. I am sure it's like driving a car, but sooner or later they take your driver's license away when you get to old.

my 2 cents.

p.s. the Caswell fields where very nice.

Discussion: Rules of the game

I need a clarification on a ruling. Batter hits a base hit and reaches first, there are now runners on first, second and third. the team calls time out quickly. they substitute the runner on first , but never declare it to any umpire or even give numbers of substituting players. Play is resume and we appeal that this is an illegal substitution.

Question is, when should the appeal be made and what should the outcome be?

please clearify.

Thank You

Jerry,

thank you for your interest but you need to look at the rules for playing with teams. SSUSA rules are that you may only play with teams in ajouning states from your home. we are in Florida.

For what I can tell you are in Cali.

Discussion: Seeding Games

This is for the SSUSA staff and coaches, I understand the seeding game process. But why not reward the teams for playing hard by not only the placing and times that is received, but also include home team for the higher seeded team through out the bracket play.

Flipping a coin is just luck, sometime you have it, sometimes you don't. Also would speed up time.

I believe other associasions give this advantage for being a higher seed. Just my 2 cents.

Discussion: Rating Question

Michigan,as a major player you can play AAA but the team can only have 3 major players, if they add the fourth they get bump up to majors. And a AAA team can not have any major+ players on roaster.

If you want to hear a funny one. A buddy of mine went to help out a 50's major team which was needing a coach he is 56 never played SSUSA got his card and he put himself in the seeding games. Now he is classified as a major player no matter where he goes.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Why do you swing an End loaded bat?

Fred, when you are ready to swing a heavy feel end loaded bat try the Nightmare if you like a 2 piece if not the new ambush will do the trick, just saying by the way they are both 1.21 bats not 1.20 more pop if you are a senior player, again just a suggestion.

Discussion: Why do you swing an End loaded bat?

I swing and end loaded, due to the whip effect, it feels like it helps the finish of the swing just like the above post suggest. Once you get started it becomes faster through the zone and finish.
But one thing, you have to get it going quicker than a balance bat.

Hope this helps. LOL
