Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Foul out to catcher

Stretch - just be aware that this rule is not the same across all associations. I don't know why I know this, but I am pretty sure that in some associations (not sure which ones, maybe USSSA?) a foul tip does not have to go above the batter's head to be caught for an out. FWIW.

Discussion: Chest Protector

Our shortstop wears EvoShield:

I believe that it forms to your body. He likes it because, like you, he took a shot off the chest and wanted some more protection. Not cheap, but he says it is comfortable and it works.

Discussion: Congratulations East Coast Teams

Hey Shark, now that the results are posted, besides the Hitmen you can add Omega, Hamel's, Lew's Crew and the Golden Girls to that list. (Not sure where "East Coast" ends because there are a few more teams that might be included like Jim and Joe's, Steel Dawgs and Triangle Masters, etc.) Congrats to all.

Discussion: Good Thermo-type Underwear

This year I bought an Under Armour "Cold Gear" shirt to wear under my jersey. It works great and is comfortable so I highly recommend it. Note sure abot 30 degrees, but it certainly keeps me warm at 45-50 degrees. I know they have leggings too but I wear long pants so I'm Ok there.

The 2011 ISSA Winter Nationals held in Virginia Beach currently has 61 registered teams which would put it at #3.

Discussion: Wouldn't it be nice

They would only be posting scores. Is that promoting the association? Isn't there some gigantic thread about Dalton, GA (which I believe is SPA related) on here already? We, as players, play in several different associations, and it would be nice if there was one common place to see results and information about ALL senior softball. To be perfectly honest, we don't care about the association as much as we care about the venue where we play. This is the best message board and it's where I go to get most of my info (and entertainment!) about senior ball. Can't we all just get along?

Discussion: Dumb question...

Why is there a 3% surcharge if you pay with a Visa or Mastercard? It would seem to me that this would be more efficient than paper forms and checks in the mail. Perhaps SSUSA could set up a PAYPAL account and automate payments? Just wondering...

Discussion: Most Unusual, outlandish, Funny, etc. Softball story

Back in my 20's my team was playing a league game at a complex where there were 2 fields side by side with a walkway in between. A ball gets hit to our shortstop who wings a throw over our first baseman's head so far that it sails and hits a gentleman, square in the head, leaning on a fence on the third base side of the OTHER field watching that game. He turns around ready to fight whoever just hit him! We, of course apologize to him and he decides that he will move behind the other field's backstop to get out of harms way. Not 2 or 3 plays later a single gets hit to me in left field and a runner is trying to score from second. I charge the ball and uncork a throw to the plate that sails completely over our backstop, and you guessed it, hits this same guy right square in the back. Our entire team couldn't help but fall down laughing. The gentleman turned to us and said "I'm out of here; I can see that it's not my day!" and immediately left the ballpark.

Can someone elaborate on the sliding at first and at the second home plate rule change, if there was one?

Thanks, Chris

Discussion: Why isn't my current registration good?

Thanks Rip. A beer? - we are staying where you guys usually stay at the Fairfield. Glad to see you guys are finally sobering up.

Duke - wouldn't it be great if they had a credit card machine present to swipe your card and a photo booth set up to get your head shot, just like they do for a lot of wedding receptions these days, LOL!

TexasT - it affects about half our team, anyone that has a card that expires at the end of this year. It all depends how many years you signed up for. And yes, they are going to allow players to play on their current cards.

I need this whole situation like a hole in the head. Being travel agent is more than enough. You guys are going to have to buy me beers in Fort Myers for that remark!

Discussion: Why isn't my current registration good?

I just received mulitple e-mails from SSUSA on this. All players that have a card that expires in December of this year will have to begin the registration process for a new 2011 (and beyond) card before Winter Nationals. They apologized for the late notice and are going to modify the expiration dates to be November - November (new year starts after World Championships)for all new cards issued. (I was going to suggest this.) A hassle on this short notice, but I will try to get the multiple players on my team to comply. My apologies for the tone of my original post but sometimes the fingers type a message and hit "Post" before the brain is fully enagaged! CW

Discussion: Why isn't my current registration good?

To SSUSA - I see on the Winter Nationals tournament page that all players must have a valid 2011 registration. My registration card says it is valid until 12/31/2010 (I bought it for 5 FULL years!)and should be valid for the remainder of this year. What gives? Why aren't you honoring your contract? I am sure there are MANY other players in the same boat as me.

Topic: Tournaments
Discussion: Northeast TOC qualifier

I certainly have to agree that all of the tournaments that Dave and Fran are the TD's of are well run. Great destination, but I wonder whether the Northeast Championships can survive with games being held at the current playing sites. I heard a lot of griping about the fields (awful outfields, snow fences, etc.) and several teams saying they would not attend again. With ISSA holding their tournament a week after in Virginia Beach, it certainly presents an alternative. What does everyone else think?

Discussion: Glen Burnie Results 50 AAA Bracket ??

A big THANK YOU to our umpires and officials. It was 104 degrees (heat index 115) on Saturday and a balmy 97 degrees on Sunday for the 50's and not once did I hear a complaint. Great job.

Discussion: shin gards

Sounds like the "EvoShield" stuff. There is a link to their products from the main Senior Softball page. One of our players bought the shirt with body-forming guard and seems to like it. He said it was very lightweight.

Discussion: Playing Levels

It would have to be different age levels and the same or 1 "skill" level difference I believe, e.g., 55 Major playing 50 Major or 50 AAA or 50 Major+, but not 50 AA.

Right Bruce, what happened was rule 4.2(6). I'm not sure I agree with the fact that you can jump back and forth between teams within a (non-World Championship) tournament.

Discussion: Playing Levels

I have mixed opinions on whether you should be able to do this within a single tournament. That should start a discussion!

On the one hand you want to beat a team on the field, whatever their personnel, but on the other should this even be allowed to happen?
