Discussion: SSWC Worlds in Las Vegas:

I would like to express my appreciation to the staff of SSUSA for an excellant tournament. I organize sports leagues and tournaments, on a much smaller scale for a Southern California City. It is quit a feat to pull off a tournament of this magnitude. Terry Hennesey and his crew deserve a lot credit for a job well done. As far as the fields, my team played at Cheyenne Sports park. The fields were in great condition as far as City maintained fields go. The only concern was at times the field prep left a little to be desired. The batters boxes were complete dustbowls and we lost a player in our first game when he twisted his knee coming out of the batters box after hitting the ball. The game following ours also had a twisted ankle as a result of the batters box. Suggestion, a little extra time in maintaining the key areas (i.e. batters box, fielding area, and pitchers box) would be appreciated. Lastly, we had very professional umpires doing our games. All of the umpiring crews did a great job. Thank you for a great Senior Softball experience.

Mike, Thank you as well. If you make the trip down to Palm Springs in February, I'll stop by and introduce myself. Palm Springs in February will be a lot cooler than Las Vegas in September. Good luck the rest of this season and in 2005

Discussion: Not Playing Seeding Rounds

MK39.. I read your e-mail and understand an honest mistake. My point is not a accusation at you or to Kelly Sports. My point was simply to find a solution to avoid teams in the future from taking advantage and finding a loophole in the system. All teams come with the best of intentions, but there are a few that usurp the process. An idea would be to have a team that forfeits a game in the round robin play, without just cause, (tournament director's discretion) would start in the losers bracket of the double elimination tournament. MK39, I have read many posts, I know of the history of Kelly's Sports and I'm not inferring or implying anything in regards to your team. Congratulations to you and the players of Kelly Sports for your World Championship victory in 50 Major+.

Discussion: Not Playing Seeding Rounds

The World Championship Tourament dates are set well in advance. It would seem that anyone interested in playing in the tournament would make those dates a priority and would schedule their vacation times accordingly. In regards to the seeding rounds and missed games. It is unfair for teams to travel long distances (i.e. Japan, New Jersey, New York or even Colorado) expecting to play four round robin games and end up only playing three games because of a forfeit. In addition, you are looking at the costs to the tournament for umpires and staff field preparation that go unused. A forfeit effects a lot of people that have committed time, resources and money to the event A for feit win is not as important in the round robin play as having the chance to play that extra game and get acclamated to the weather. My team (TOP GUN), made the commitment a year ago to play in the full tournament and all fifteen players arrived on Wednesday evening. We played our first game in round robin play at 8:00 a.m. on Thursday and finished up on Sunday ( eight games later). I would hope that we all would consider how they would feel if they traveled a long way to a tournament to have their first game of the tournament a forfeit.
A two game round robin would not truly establish an effective seating list. The seating would be determined by the luck of the draw. Long winded, but this was my first Senior World Series Tournament in the 50+ and I enjoyed the competition and fellowship between players or all skill levels. Senior Softball is fantastic.

Discussion: LAS CRUCES, NM TOURNAMENT, 5/22 AND 5/23

Glover, I hope your team had as good a time as our team. Top Gun 2 from San Diego went to Las Cruces this past weekend and played in the 50+ division. The tournament was well run and I would like to thank the committee for all of their hard work in hosting a successful event... Being from SoCal, the weather was a bit on the warm side (94 degrees) and windy like Las Vegas, but we enjoed the commaraderie. Again, Las Cruces, thank you for hosting a fun tournament and i would recommend other teams consider signing up next year.

Discussion: Run limits in tournaments

I agree with the five runs per at-bat per inning limit. My team recently played in a tournament in Palm Springs. My team is a Major team and we were playing a Major + team. After four innings, we were leading by a score of 12 to 5. In the bottom half of the fifth inning, the Major team scored 25 runs (many were home runs over the fence) ...game over in 5 innings. At least with the 5 run rule, teams can play at least 6 innings with an open inning in the 7th. Also most games will finish before the time limit because you don't have the long drawn out inning.
Lastly, a team can either score five runs on HR's or the otld fashion way.
