Discussion: Qusetion

Old school
I'm not bias on this subject, remember I stated up front at one time or another I played with over half the war eagles on various teams. I harbor no Ill will towards the team or any of the player. My og question was about the number of major & major+ players allowed on a AAA Team. My perdiction as to the outcome of the Spring tourney was my observation of this team's playing ability prior to the event. No disrespect the participant, but I wasn't wrong as to the outcome. Good teams get moved up and this is a good team.

Thank-You fastsam for your observation. After thinking about the response from ssusa. I decided to call and asked who was responding for them as to questions on the MB. Tiffany was very gracious in her efforts to assist me for a resolve and stated she'd get back to me. Still waiting.
So let put some facts to the ssusa response.
Last year I asked about a player reclassification and was told I had to wait 2 yrs. I was also told player were only allowed to play down 1 division Maj to AAA. a player going from m+ to AAA IS A DROP OF 2. ALSO the coach I played for last year was informed he could have only 2 Maj player on his AAA roster.I asked about a reclassification back to AAA I informed them of my shoulder separation separation. They mention nothing about having my Doctor send a note to assist in the change in status. (2)the individuals mentioned as sending medical info for status change were sent in last year, which is bull. I played tourneys with one and league the other, one had completed his surgery and played Maj all 2014 season, the other is still waiting to address his issues in the coming months. So nothing was on file a year ago.
The War Eagles won the spring world in Mesquite as predicted. There is always talk about parity and the need to have teams play in the right division. I guess ssusa has someone turning a blind eye to certain concerns.

It funny how a simple question results in backhand accusations.
SSUSA Thank-You, for explaining the rule, but your kicker on the end wasn't needed. All teams & players have questionson rules if we don't ask how are we to gain a better understanding? This is why I don't spend a lot of time here. Again thanks for clarification.

Is the rule for player rankings being enforced? How can the War Eagles be rated a a AAA 60 TEAM.
They have 2 60 major + players & a major player. According to the rules your allowed to play down one division, which means plus can go to major & major can go down to AAA. You can have 2 majors on a AAA Team, but according to the rules this team should be a major ranked team. Don't
undetstand why an acception is being made for this team. Just asking.i

Coach informed our team the western national would be the teams last tourney of year for several reasons, which I underrstand.

Discussion: Thank-You Dave & Tommy

Playing in Vegas this weekend. There was an umpire doing games at BLD, whom i say as a former umpire displayed very unprofessional behavior in his game prior to & during my teams games. With 2 out a big man busted his butt getting down the line and clearly was past the bag. The umpire called him out. Everyone watching knew he was safe. When asked to seek help he smile and said he made the call. It didn't effect the outcome. Then we took the field. Our pitcher threw a pitch to a batter who was about 6'4", about a foot over his head. It was called illegal. He then voice to my team in the field "I don't like hight pitches". Forcing our pitcher to groove the ball. Then a few batters later. The batter ran up on a pitch and hit the ball and was clearly out of the box. When asked if he was going to call the out, he stated he wasn't going to make the call a batter out for being out of the box. His counterpart in converstion with me couldn't believe what he was doing. We won the game, however this needed to be address. I then spoke with Dave who was TD, who asked me to speak with the UIC Tommy. They both listened to my concerns, and the next day I was informed the issue was addressed. From my observations the umpire was no longer in the park working. I want it know that when a concern is presented SSUSA hears us and acts.. Thank-You Dave & Tommy.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Bat policy

I think this is a great start in managing our hot bat with a design for player safety. It would also be productive the have a list of bats approved prior to this announcement as some say senior but don't have 1.21 rating. I know there are several model & brands that have come & gone, the clarity would eliminate any questions.jmo

Discussion: Gorilla Boy

Dbax, I think the majority agree about the balls knuckling like crazy in Vegas. We played at Arroyo Grande & Dessert Breeze and the balls were dancing for everyone. The first session was very good it was also great having the equipment vendors at the different sites. Loved seeing the Combat label providing their swag for purchase.

Discussion: How can SSUSA possibly reclassify an established Major+ team


I read through all of this. This is my take on the weekend. I played this weekend in some the games mentioned above & against FG. They hit their limit in HRs against us & had to back off due to not wanting walks for their over the fence shots. A couple landing across the parking lot (banging the ball). It is just puzzling how FG went 0-2 Friday. If you have an M+ team what kind of players are you going to replace placers that leave with? Duh!The same caliber(no brainer). So let's not talk about the replacement of players. Bottom line: They should have had to demonstrate they didn't belong in M+ before dropping down. FG's Friday’s effort had you guessing. Saturday answers to the question were verified. To be the bottom seed and roll like they did the rest of the tournament one can only can only think SB. Before it is stated no sour grapes or anything like that. They won it. Enjoy the win.
