Discussion: 2012 Home Run Rule Clarification

SSUSA please clarify the following rule:
Can the home team go 'one-up' on home runs in the unlimited inning, provided the one-up home run does not win the game for them? I have heard differing opinions that this rule has been changed and is now allowed in 2012. However, I have not been able to find this rule change actually documented.

Oklahoma also borders Missouri. Would you be interested in a 55 major team based out of Kansas City, MO? If so, e-mail me at brett.swanson@ericsson.com.

Discussion: 55+ Major Team Based out of KC, MO Looking For Players

I am looking to add 2 or 3 more 'committed' players. My team will be playing two tournaments (SSUSA & SPA) per month (May-September). We are not a sponsored team. Everyone has to pay their own expenses. If you are interested, please e-mail me at brett.swanson@ericsson.com and provide me with your contact information. Serious inquiries only.

Once again another simple post, as simple as the poll was (yes or no), gets hijacked by Gary19.

Discussion: 2012 Tournament Entry Fee Increase

Based on the 2012 tournaments that have been posted so far, it appears entry fees are going up an average of 5-6%. This is even higher than the national inflation rate. The inflation rate in the United States was last reported at 3.9% in September of 2011.

Discussion: Christmas Tradition

As the holidays approach, the giant Asian factories are kicking into high
gear to provide Americans with monstrous piles of cheaply produced goods --
merchandise that has been produced at the expense of American labor. This
year will be different. This year Americans will give the gift of genuine
concern for other Americans. There is no longer an excuse that, at gift
giving time, nothing can be found that is produced by American hands. Yes
there is!

It's time to think outside the box, people. Who says a gift needs to fit in
a shirt box, wrapped in Chinese produced wrapping paper?
Everyone -- yes EVERYONE gets their hair cut. How about gift certificates
from your local American hair salon or barber?

Gym membership? It's appropriate for all ages who are thinking about some
health improvement.

Who wouldn't appreciate getting their car detailed? Small, American owned
detail shops and car washes would love to sell you a gift certificate or a
book of gift certificates.

Are you one of those extravagant givers who think nothing of plunking down
the Benjamin’s on a Chinese made flat-screen? Perhaps that grateful gift
receiver would like his driveway sealed, or lawn mowed for the summer, or
driveway plowed all winter, or games at the local golf course.

There are a bazillion owner-run restaurants -- all offering gift
certificates. And, if your intended isn't the fancy eatery sort, what about
a half dozen breakfasts at the local breakfast joint. Remember, folks this
isn't about big National chains -- this is about supporting your home town
Americans with their financial lives on the line to keep their doors open.

How many people couldn't use an oil change for their car, truck or
motorcycle, done at a shop run by the American working guy?

Thinking about a heartfelt gift for mom? Mom would LOVE the services of a
local cleaning lady for a day.

My computer could use a tune-up, and I KNOW I can find some young guy who is
struggling to get his repair business up and running.

OK, you were looking for something more personal. Local crafts people spin
their own wool and knit them into scarves. They make jewelry, and pottery
and beautiful wooden boxes.

Plan your holiday outings at local, owner operated restaurants and leave
your server a nice tip. And, how about going out to see a play or ballet at
your hometown theatre.

Musicians need love too, so find a venue showcasing local bands.

Honestly, people, do you REALLY need to buy another ten thousand Chinese
lights for the house? When you buy a five dollar string of light, about
fifty cents stays in the community. If you have those kinds of bucks to
burn, leave the mailman, trash guy or babysitter a nice BIG tip.

You see, Christmas is no longer about draining American pockets so that
China can build another glittering city. Christmas is now about caring about
US, encouraging American small businesses to keep plugging away to follow
their dreams. And, when we care about other Americans, we care about our
communities, and the benefits come back to us in ways we couldn't imagine.
THIS is the new American Christmas tradition.

Considering there are fewer than 10 'active' 50 major plus teams, I would say 7 is a good turnout.

Yes Gary, it is a good turnout for that division.

Discussion: Looks like a Great group of teams for 50+ Major in Phoenix

Players come and go and rosters change for various reasons....injuries, moving up in age, etc. Yes, three of the teams played at the major plus level for 2 years and their appeals to move back down were granted accordingly at different times.

Midwest teams have won the 50+ major division 3 out of the last 4 years......2007, 2008, and 2009.

Discussion: Ratings Clarification

To the SSUSA staff. My team played all of the 2010 season and the first half of the 2011 season as a 50 major plus team before our appeal was granted to be re-rated back to 50 major. How will this new rule effect the players on my team going forward in the 2012 season? The rule states no more than 3 players on the roster may have team affiliation history at the major plus level in either 2010 or 2011. Will our team need to split up and only retain 3 of our current members?

The new one I'm referring to is light gray, has a white tacky grip, red knob, and says Made in USA on the neck. Is this the same one you are referring to or are you referrring to the darker gray one that has been available for the last year?

Has anyone had the opportunity to hit with one of the new Miken Ultra II 'Made in USA' bats, perhaps a demo? If so, please provide your feedback.

Discussion: 45+ looking to Join team.

This message board is a good way to reach out to other teams if you are looking. I would suggest you look at the online rule book on this web site and familiarize yourself with the rules. I would also suggest looking at the team ratings for the age division you want to play in and see where those teams are lcoated. The majority of 45+ competitive teams are based out of California. You might also try contacting the SSUSA office for team manager contact information.
