Topic: Tournaments
Discussion: Pre-World Tourn. Sept. 26th.- Columbus, Ohio

As usual the team interest is starting to come about. We currently have interest of 5-6 teams. We know that it will be smaller this year, but this is something that we want to carry over year to year to get leagues involved with senior ball and for teams to get a chance to check out their new prospects for next year. In picking up a player, you can go 1 year down. Please let me know ASAP..thanks...

Discussion: Is the TOC a true TOCs ???

What the SSUSA has done to inspire teams to pursue the ultimate win in the TOC is commendable. However, is it a true TOC? I understand the $$$ issues for these organizations, but why cannot they be put aside &possibly share a piece of the pie by allowing the other(such as ISF,ISSA,LVSSA, ASA, USSSA.ASA, NSA, etc) to participate. Then we truly have a champion.Over tha past few years, rings were throw out to winners of small bracket tournaments. This eventually took the flavor out of winning.However, it would be MUCH more meaningful to have a champ of real CHAMPIONS !!

Discussion: Winter Natl's in Fl.

We had that "halo" call made against us in Phoenix and it knocked us right out of the finals in the winners bracket....With this call being highly judgemental, the controversy will NEVER end...My feeling is that there should be a verbal warning to the hitter and as well noted.The notices could be kept on an card such as the score card and exchanged to the TD after every game..Then if the player does it for a second offense, it would be an automatic out....and the 3rd. or 4th. time, a game suspension. I know there is a little work involved, but the fees that we pay could warant the issue....I do not think that the majority of us are good enough to maliciously try to hurt someone....at least I hope they don't.Most of us have to go to work at the beginning of the week to provide and income.

Discussion: Fort Myers - Men's 55+ Major Division

I do not feel that the Major division had to move to Naples.. The teams that I know that are playing in the Majors could have quite comfortably played in the Ft. Myers are of Cape Coral or Lee County. I do not know of any true power homerun teams in this divison that requires the 325 fence.The last minute notice of moving up our team created a huge inconvenience and expense to us. Plus, it takes us away from the main venues of the tournament and does not allow us to meet up with our friends from the other teams.Looking at the times for the AAA and AA, it appears that their finish times in the late morning could have accommodated another division. If you are going to factor in late starts for the entire divison, it should have been known far enough in advance for all teams to make arrangements. I know that it is about $$$$ and SSUSA promising revenue to the community. But many times it is at the expense and inconvenience of the teams which makes up the backbone of your organization.

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: dead ball out

The "dead ball out" probably cost our team a chance to go to the finals in the winner's bracket. All of the umpires can NOT be on the same page with this type of ruling - too, too judgemental, It affected many teams, other than ours, in Phoenix this past weekend. I, as many other ball players, like using the high powered bats, but when we start changing the basis concept and rules of sofball, something else needs to be done.

Discussion: pruitt chevrolet player

If someone from SSUSA wants to contact me, I can give you our best price for an AED... I sell a few and feel that every tourn. should have an AED on hand. It seems that more and more players are falling to this dreaful disease....

If any of you guys need a player, this is the guy to pick up. He has more heart, desire, and ability then men twice his size. A very good OF and hitter...Wish he were a few years older....we would pick him up !!

Discussion: Bob Chapp -Qualifying tournament for the Senior Softball World Championships

As always, I was really saddened when I heard that someone from the Lansing tourn. had passed away while playing. But when I just read that it was Bob, I was totally devasted. Bob not only was truly a fierce competitor but also would be a kind, gentle friend. I know that I am one of many, many others that have had the opportunity to have played with him .It was just an honor to have been able to be on the same field with him. I strongly believe that there should be a moment of silence for Bob at the Midwest Nationals. Another fallen hero of the game has left us. We must remember how precious is life amd enjoy every game that God allows us to play. My sincere sympathy to the family.....Larry.

Discussion: Bring back 3 game Round Robins !!??

I believe that the organizations need to bring back the three game RRs. Sure, SSUSA gives you five total games, if you loose the first two games in the tourn., they then give you the extra game. However, by playing the 3 RR games before the double elim., it gives everyone an opportunity to get some games in before the start of the tourn. I have been reading the message board for the past few years and I have seen more and more disgrunted players than ever before. I feel that it is because they are not getting enough playing time. And please do not use the excuse that the addtional game tires you out. We all should be in good enough shape to play or you should consider the subservient role of coaching bases.

Discussion: Midwest and Midwest Metro

The other thing that I found in Indy and gave me a heads up with other tourns .......and that is the Indy softball organization gave you a list of host hotels that are with you packet but they failed to tell you that there is a 10% mark-up to each room, each day that goes to their club. It is expensive enough for traveling expenses, tourn. fees, etc. to also have to pay an increase for hotels. So I suggest that whomever is scheduling your rooms for away tourns., to check and see if there is a mark-up that goes to the TD or their organization.

Topic: Insurance
Discussion: Health Insurance......

Thanks Southpaw 55. I have tried them, but due to my athletic injuries, especially from softball, they find me pretty much uninsurable. When we were in Vegas two years ago for the SSUSA Worlds, our team had to play 15 game in four days, and that took a toll on my back which now most companies do not want to insure me. But thanks for taking the time to offer me some good info.....
