Discussion: simple question

Timmy,

You can add these 3 Major rated players and still keep the team's AAA rating. If you added a 4th Major rated player, the team would be required to compete at the Major level. The new 2013-2014 Rules are out, check out Section 14.1(1) to confirm what I've stated here.

Discussion: loosing toenails

Fellas,

My wife and some of the girls on her women's team were having a similar issue, although not as bad. My wife said that she kept jamming her second toe (next to the big toe) inside the shoe which caused not only discomfort, but also the loss of that toenail sometimes.

They are all using a product called "Pro-Tec Athletic Toe Caps", a gel cap that fits over the toe. A condom for your toes boys. They're available on Amazon, $11.04 for a 4-pak. See attached link.

Lonell,

My bad. It looks like both Fat Nancy's/Gubiotti and Gonzalez Insulation got bumped late in 2012, with both teams most likely qualifying at the AAA level. The 55 AAA and 55 Majors will most likely be combined for the seeding games and then break off for the double elimination.

Discussion: Looking to play in the TOC

Dee, we are a California team and are currently short players too, and scrambling to field a team. This seems to be a common problem when the TOC can be up to a year after a team qualifies...we qualified in Feb. 2012 and the team isn't even together now. Also, we're a younger team so we can't help you, LoL.

Would be nice if we could get at least a tentative list of who's confirmed for the TOC. By the time we know who's coming, it'll be three weeks from the tourney. SSUSA seems to be more concerned about pushing their 1st TOC Fantasy Camp, really?...a fantasy camp for senior players, you've got to be kidding me! Talk about trying to squeeze blood out of the turnip.

Priorities, priorities, priorities.

Discussion: Performance enhancing

Ron,
You're absolutely right, you will not be getting many confessions, or acknowledgements of usage to this inquiry. I suspect that there are certainly players amongst us that are/or have taken HGH or possibly other PED's. I also understand that HGH is rather expensive, so I would expect the number to be low...but they're out there.

Discussion: Is SSUSA trying to go too far?

Mike,

Very well put, a well thought out, well written verbal lashing if you will. Sadly, I doubt it will have any effect on this individual as he'll most likely move on to the next thread to hijack and voice his repetitive nonsense about the nature of the SSUSA game and events, none of which he even patronizes.

Discussion: 2012 vegas worlds

In our third game Friday at Cheyenne, out of position 2B umpire calls one of our players out for missing the 2B bag, which he clearly stepped right on, even showing the ump his cleat print. We ask for help from home plate ump and he says not his call...third out inning over. On our way out to field, player says to home plate umpire, "how can he make that call?". Home plate ump responds to player across the diamond with "do better next time". Really? I told him his job was to call balls and strikes and not add his personal commentary, to which he replied, "I'm a grown ass man"

SSUSA, I understand this tourney drew more teams than ever before. Maybe next year, we can do better with some of the umpiring crews.

Discussion: 55 Major Division - Omega QSE Champions

Mike,

I know many of the guys from NCI and was sorry to hear what occurred. I'm sure this single event affected the entire NCI team negatively, and made a otherwise great softball weekend end badly for you and your teammates. From a sportsmanship standpoint, embarrassed and offended is the word I heard used. This type of behavior should never be tolerated and has no place in this game we have the privilege to play at our age.

Congratulations to Omega QSE, a great team who is on quite a roll. We played them on Friday and knew right away that they would certainly be in the mix.

Discussion: Cheyenne Park for Worlds

E4/E6 (John),

I think you're missing rightrj1's (Ron's) point. He is simply saying that Cheyenne Park shouldn't even be used as one of the venues for this event, and he's right... pretty much the worst fields in Vegas. As for the "best players" comment, both age divisions there were Major Plus, pretty much making them the best in their age division. They just got shafted this weekend.

Hey, the 40's Major/Major Plus, and 50 Major Plus get to play at the Big League Dreams facility this upcoming weekend, so good for them.

Discussion: Ratings

#19,
IMO, the Eastern Nationals is a SSUSA sanctioned tourney and winning it is not an automatic bump. SPA is not an SSUSA tourney and winning it wouldn't play into the SSUSA ratings. More importantly, there were only 5 teams in that Eastern Nationals 60AAA bracket.

Discussion: Is it too much to expect ice water in the dugout?

Andy,

Slammed is putting it mildly. Apparently, some people didn't take the time to read my entire post before poppin' off about bringing coolers, and personal accountability. Some seemed to entirely miss the part that states I did bring water and gatorade...I didn't ask for the organization to supply drinking water...read a little slower and take it all in before you pounce fellas.

Just as you stated Andy, it's been SOP for SSUSA to have the 5 gallon jug of ice water in the dugouts for tournaments, especially at the venues where it's hot. Most of us will use that water to douse ourselves to help cool us down a little.

Marv, many guys drink the water from these things, maybe not now though. Thanks for the informing us of the sanitizing, or lack thereof :)...and who the hell is dunking their towels in the ice water buckets anyway.

Peace out.

Discussion: Is it too much to expect ice water in the dugout?

Maybe it's just me, but after playing this past weekend in Hemet at the SCSST/SSUSA Last Chance Qualifier, is it too much to expect some ice water in the dugouts? Played 4 games on Saturday, 2 back to back, then a one game break, then 2 more back to back, it was pretty warm out there, and the facility doesn't have much in the way of shade. Just sayin'. While we had water, gatorade, etc., a little ice water to douse yourself sometimes can be a good thing.

Seem like these things are only addressed at the major tournies, kinda like the defibrillators.

Signed,

Overheated

Discussion: Deepest Sympathy to Scrap Iron and Aurora

Terry,

Thank you for speaking on behalf of SSUSA. I'd like to add the following:

With less than two weeks before many senior softball players, friends, and families make their way to Aurora for the Western Nationals, please keep in mind that this community is in mourning. I have two friends there, one nearby in Denver and the other in Aurora. As you can imagine, the community is in a state of shock and disbelief, as is the rest of the country. Let us all remember the emotional situation we will be in, and to be as sensitive and caring to this community as we possibly can.
