Topic: Tournaments
Discussion: finding results of tournies

Dave Dowell - One of the things I have an issue with at work is people telling me why thngs can't be done as opposed to telling my how we CAN get them done. Reporting tournament results doesn't need to be tied to scheduling software. The fact that it currently is isn't relevant. People just want to see ther results and it shouldn't take any type of software development to do that. As someone noted previously it could be as simple as having someone at the tournament with a computer and an air card starting a thread for each tournament and posting scores of games as rounds are completed. I appreciate all that SSUSA does and like I said before is a pretty well run organization. It's just an opportunity to improve..."that's a simple fact".

It is hard to understand why this would be difficult to do. They could at least post the information the day after the tournament at a minimum w/o too much difficulty. Maybe there is something we are missing but no one has explained it yet.

SSUSA is really a service organization and should be working to satisfy it customers (the players). It would seem something this easy to implement that their customers want would be something they would have interest in doing. I think overall SSUSA does a darn good job of running things but everyone should always be trying to get better.

Discussion: ISSA Virginia Beach tourney rained out.......who got screwed????

I don't have a dog in the fight for this but my opinion is that if ISSA expects you to share in the loss from ancillary items like t-shirts, then you should also be able to share in the profit. It can't be a one a way deal. No business works like that. If you share the risk of loss, you should also share the risk for the reward. So if they expect you to pay money when they can't sell shirts or have other expenses that they cover, then a portion of the profit (when they make it)should go to reduce fees for taking part in the tournament when it makes money. That of course would never happen.

I'd like to be in a business where profit is guaranteed but haven't found it yet. Maybe it's time to start running tourneys.

Discussion: Sliding on Turf - Big League Dreams Fields

Here is the post mordem on sliding at BLD. It was actually a little faster than sliding on dirt but not much and it was way easier on the body than sliding in dirt. I'll caveat that by saying that I wear pants and sliders with pads underneath but I'd take sliding there over sliding on dirt any day of the week.

Discussion: World Masters Updates

Thanks for the info from everyone. This looks like the best way to keep people informed...do it yourself. I'll be there next weekend and will try to post whatever I can get info on. Playing 50M so I can definitely provide updates on that.

Our 55 Major team played at 7:30 am Friday and the brackets were loaded with early games. I agree with twotwo...be ready for early games.

Just curious...does anyone provide results in a somewhat realtime manner for the World Masters tourney on this board? nI'm guessing not but had to ask.

Discussion: Sliding on Turf - Big League Dreams Fields

Thanks for the comments. I always wear sliders with pads and pants so I guess it's slide away and make sure I don't drag my hand. I just hope I don't slide a little later and jam my ankle into the bag. Good luck to everyone in Vegas.

Discussion: Sliding on Turf - Big League Dreams Fields

Maybe I should have started with the question of whether or not the infields are turf. I have been told that the infields are turf but the pictures on the BLD web site sure look like they are dirt.

Discussion: Sliding on Turf - Big League Dreams Fields

For any of you that have played on the Big League Dreams fields in Vegas, how is it sliding on the turf when running the bases or playing outfield. I slide a lot but am wondering if pants and sliders will help or will the turf tear the pants and your leg up? Also, is it a lot faster than sliding in dirt and do you need to start slides earlier? Any advice from folks that have played there on sliding would be appreciated.

I play for 50 Cal. We struggled Sunday but that's the way it goes sometimes.

You guys did well there. I had to leave before the final games were played. Did you end up winning your division or was it J&J?

Discussion: 3 Game Guarantee

Have to agree with you all on this one. In addition to seeing one of those teams in the bracket in one of the recent tournaments, they even had a better draw. A team that lost 2 played a team that was 1-2 and 2 teams that were 2 and 1 in the tournament played each other. That's just not right.

Discussion: Has the game really been toned down?

This is my first year of senior ball and I think the bat and ball combo is ridiculous. There's no reason to have it where 90% of the people on the team can hit a ball out. It adds to it when there are no home run outs after reaching the limit. My guess is that they do that because they don't want people shooting the middle when they are out of HRs but it allows teams to just have big guys hammer the ball out of the park every swing.

I love to play and enjoy the competition of senior ball, but this game is not really how softball should be played in my opinion. I'd rather see the ball in play more and make defense a bigger part of the game.
