Discussion: List of teams going to TOC

Duke....... I have done that and can't wait to share the results with the board..... There are 2 Major+ teams......that should be a bard burner of a tournament and 4 Major teams again a great tournament........ This is a tournament that a lot of teams qualified for and only 2 Major+ teams and 4 Major teams are attending........... Great job SSUSA wonder how many teams would be there if it was a 2015 roster event.........I understand the 6 year contract they have but a simple change of the roster requirements from 2014 to a 2015 might help attendance.......... Just a thought ..... I am probably way off base with that but you never know till you try it

Well due to the rules that SSUSA has put in place we will not be able to field our team to play in this tournament that we worked so hard to qualify for ..... I wish all the teams that will be able to play in it Good Luck . I personally think SSUSA needs to really sit down and take a long look at this tournament and make a few changes to it but from some of my previous attempts at discussing some things about Senior Softball that could be good for the game but the survey from 2 years ago wont change anything. I hope the 4 Teams that play Major and the 3 that play Major + have a great time playing each other in what should be one of the best Good Luck to all who play and Stay Safe

i guess to answer your question Gary I don't see where the caliber of player or players really matter we are a Major plus team . The reason we are shorthanded has to due with injury we concurred at the world tournament and work schedules I know it's hard to believe but some employers don't share the same love we have for the game and won't let guys off work ( sucks I know) but it is what it is.... I really wasn't trying to get in a pissing contest here was really just curious as to why the guys couldn't be added I got my answer and that's good . I can always count on the SSUSA staff to give me the direction to look in the rule book and I thank them for that ........ I hope we are able to go to the TOC because it's not a tournament you just go to you have to earn your way there....... I know it's a special tourney and hope to be a part of it ..... Again thanks for all the replies

To the SSUSA staff I guess my question about this goes like this.... We will be short handed for the TOC I don't se why it would be an issue to add 3 players to our roster as they will be playing with us in 2015 . The 3 I speak of have never played an inning of senior softball so they are totally new to the SSUSA program ...... Why is this an issue with SSUSA for us to add these players to our roster for the TOC as they will be fostered players for 2015.. as always thank you for your input

Why is the Winter Worlds and the Winter Nationals a 2015 roster event when they are played in 2014 and the TOC is not a 2015 roster event and is the 2nd tournament played 2015.......... Just asking

Actually any one who is opposed to the 1-1 count what age and level ball do you play ...... Not a judgement just a curiosity to see where it stands as a whole...... Thank you all

LP I will say this as a pitcher I'm going to do my best to get you to hit my pitch hit into my defense it's my job as a pitcher to get you out ...... Pitching cookies for you to T off on is not part of the game plan that is one reason I would prefer a 1-1 count the game is still underhanded so it's not like I can throw a 100 mph heater by you...... Just food for thought........ Do you think maybe they changed the Home run rule to maybe take just swing for the fences and walk to first out of the game now you have to learn how to hit ....... Aka play the game

LP just from the sounds of it you seem to be one of the guys who is standing at the plate looking for that perfect pitch ......might as well put it on a T for you..... I mean no disrespect in that comment but let's try and speed the game up just a bit....... Last time I checked its still pitched UNDERHAND .... Right ????

SSUSA Staff so if I was to attend this meeting in December and was to bring this before the committee they would take a new poll to see if this was something that the members wanted....... Also just for my information how many people are on the rules committee and do they still currently play this kids game that we love and are so passionate about

Just a question to anybody at SSUSA STAFF...... How many new members has SSUSA acquired sense the last poll and at what cost or harm would it be to explore this issue now ........Thank you for your time on this issue

Maybe after the reply that SSUSA Staff just posted maybe and I say maybe it's time for some NEW BLOOD in the executive office who want to see the game grow as well as be willing to maybe just maybe revisit a few rule changes more than every 6 years ..... Which I think is sad because every tournament I have had the pleasure of playing in is one of if not the best organization I have been associated with with that I say Thank You for a job well done...... I can see that this rule will not change . I wasn't trying ruffle any feathers was wanting to see what the thought was on a 1-1 rule change....... Keep up the good work guys

SSUSA Staff .... Simple solution send out a new survey and let the chips or should I say count fall where it will and poll 50-65 and 65+ have 2 polls but do it soon not in 2018 ..... It's a hot topic now ...... Like everything if it don't work or it don't help the game Change it back ........ This is a simple fix

Great point Tim as I previously stated I see NO REASON to to have to look at 5 pitches before you are put on notice you have 1 pitch left to hit , walk or make an out . It just seems guys forget the defense is trying to get you out that's why there are more people on the field other than just a pitcher

Marv19.... I love the fact that the numbers are flawed ...... The point here is the old guys who make the rules are not going to make a change because they don't think its proper again just my opinion but I know I didn't get a vote in this survey..... Just wish they would do a true poll and if it comes up the majority want 0-0 then that's what it will be but at least give us a fair shake

I find some of these comments funny ... If you think getting 5 pitches to look at before you pull the trigger to swing is comical and then you say that with a 1-1 count your more likely to go back through the box .. I say go take some BP and learn some bat control ...... With this logic after you get a full count pull out a T and take your last swing that way...... Then we get that it takes away from the purity of the game ..... It's a GIRLS game that we play its slo pitch not fast don't get me wrong I LOVE THIS GAME and will play by whatever rules they govern us by would just like to see it changed to 1-1 again just my opinion
