Discussion: NOT real happy with SSUSA right now. Monaco Mayhem team

Taits, here is ONE of the problems with the rating system. The players we added are Recreational players at best.
Also as stated in the SSUSA rating guidelines themselves, review of ratings is done in Jan and July. Heck, we haven't even played anyone in our age bracket yet and we get bumped! Just not happy...all the teams our sponsor has, he isn't happy. If we play and can't be competitive, it's all over for us. He doesn't mind losing, but he wants us to play somewhere where we AT LEAST have a chance to win.
If we have to change associations, the other teams he sponsors are going to have to go too. NOT HAPPY!

Discussion: NOT real happy with SSUSA right now. Monaco Mayhem team

We took over the team of CE John. A 65AA team. Some of the guys moved up to 70 so we needed to fill a few spots. We filled them with guys who are fun to play with and like to have a good time. Not great ball players by any means, just guys who want to hit some and play a fun game of ball. Not a competitive bone in any of their bodies.
We played in Lacy this past weekend. Round-robin format and got our ass handed to us. But we had a blast. We got beat by 70's team and that was ok. We had fun!
We got informed today we have been raised to AAA. Unbelievable. We add players who are REC players at best and this happens. We are now an A team if anything.
Got an email from our sponsor today. He isn't happy either. He sponsors 5 teams total in SSUSA and he wants us to find a different organization to play for. UTrip, ASA, whatever. Truthfully we did pick up a AAA rated player but he is a wounded duck. He can't throw anymore and his legs are now toast.
It's just sad that now we have to go play in a division where we have ABSOLUTELY no chance of even being a little competitive.
So fellas, lots like if this isn't resolved, we won't be around much longer
You are a great bunch of guys. Hope to see you all on the field one day. You too can say you rained on Mayhem...:)

It's no wonder SSUSA is losing members to other orginizations. ANTIQUATED RULES and the new ones just implemented, are just as bad.

Discussion: question regarding paint chips

I have 2 bats that both have developed a paint chip. It's about an eigth inch square on both bats. Both are newer bats and I was wondering if this is a sign of things to come? And has the bat developed a weak spot?...Ambush and Dirty

From last season to now, I have broken or cracked 4 Mikes(red), 2 Melee (yellow), 2 Ambush (el), this is getting expensive. should I switch to utrip bats?...Any thoughts would be appreciated....and please...don't hijack the thread.....thanks

Discussion: The Dirty

I watched the videos....wondering what was the true compression of the balls and what kind were they?.....does the bat come in standard weights? balanced and end loaded?

Discussion: Here's my question on RATINGS

As a member of a team that's right on the edge of being moved up, here's my question. If we were to be moved up, most players want to disband and go to other teams. As a fairly good player, I am good with moving up, but finding a team to play for isn't as easy here in the northwest as it is elsewhere. And there isn't a lot of teams of that caliber up here. Going from AAA to Major or plus is hard here. The teams are pretty close knit, winning is nice but I'm more about the friendship and just the joy of the game. I won't play the cut throat kind of ball, nor do I want to play for a team that's that way. Maybe i'm just rambling here but I'm kind of at a loss.

Discussion: Which Bat should I use?

I have been helping the wounded warriors project for a few yrs and I think it's about time I played too....I have played for a yr or so here locally but I need to find a bat that can withstand my hitting. I don't know if it's good or bad but I hit really hard...kind of put everything into it. Usually goes over the fence but I am tired of breaking bats....any ideas?
I've tried Mikens, Ambush and some others.

Discussion: Hard time getting ahold of Team 1 sports re: broken Ambush

Hey paco...if you don't have something worthwhile to say, why did you say anything? Just because these guys are big doesn't mean they can hit hard. They are in wheelchairs for God's sake.

Hey swing...when we bought this bat we were told this was all new technology, and stronger and more durable that a Cent...Our Cent has over 1000 hits and it's just fine.

We have never had a bat break after just 300 hits. Hell, we have never had a bat break ever. Except some Mikens a few years back, but they turned out to be from a bad batch and we replaced by Miken.

maybe I should say that this bat was used by a bunch of wounded warriors...they play able bodied teams and truthfully some of these guys have upper bodies that would make a weightlifter jealous.
