KEVIN, GIVE ME A CALL

I need a player for Phoenix, we are based out of Oregon, so connecting states is a must, we have 9 for Friday, and 10 for Saturday. We play 55 Major.

Discussion: I NEED A 55 MAJOR PLAYER FOR ROCK N RENO

Our 1st game is less than 48 hours from now, I have got clearance from SSUSA to even use a player from another team, without any roster movement, as long as their team is not playing in this tournament. I have 9 guys need the 10th prefer an outfielder. I can help with finances.

We are not loading up, as I think we have one of the best teams in the major 50 division and my nucleus will be there. tg69 is right, we have not picked up a glove since Winter Nationals, hell it was 20 degrees outside a couple of weeks ago

Discussion: NEED A PLAYER FOR THE TOC

To the question of the team that won it, which there was 11 of us there. Since then for the TOC, my pitcher has retired, my other pitcher was hit in the Winter Nationals and his arm was shattered, he has 8 screws and a metal plate in it. My shortstops back went out on him and he is seriously thinking about retiring. My 3rd baseman is unemployed and his unemployment just ran out.

Discussion: NEED A PLAYER FOR THE TOC

We had this pretty well set, but some things have gone wrong. We have 10 players headed to Florida for the TOC, I need at least one player and could take two. We are a good major team, and Western National Champions. So anybody interested, please call Rick Ross with Four Seasons - Wilkins Trucking @ 503-655-5769, remember your state has to border Oregon.

Joe, if I knew we were going to be moved up, I would have gotten you on the team too. As far as Willie, we have just talked alot on the phone, but he plans on playing with us in Mesquite.

We are not a bad team, but I really think some other teams should have moved up with us

Husky, I think the reason they moved us is we added 2 of the Arizona Mob players to our team

and ONE more thing, the only tournament we have EVER won is the AAA in Seattle in 2006, as we have continued to get crushed by the NW LEGENDS, who got moved up to Major+ after winning at least 6 tournaments that I know of, now we are in the same classification with them again.

Discussion: DBO/PPR rule - still protecting nobody

Come on guys think about it, they can't change the ball or the bats, that's who their major sponsors are, so they have to change the rules.

Husky71, why should we have just made it. YES we had a good year, BUT we did not win a tournament, we did not get any rings, we finished 8th in Phoenix, tied for 5th at Winter Nationals, behind East Bay Oldies, Colorado Mudhens, and the champion Tucson Bandits, who we just barely beat in Salt Lake City, by coming back in the bottom of the seventh. Like I said before all this re-ranking. There were 28 teams in Phoenix, I thought the caliber was equal and any team could have won it. If you base it on what we did last year, then there should be alot of other teams moved up to Major+

I understand you are trying to get more teams in Major +, but at what expense, by destoying the game for 200 teams to make 6 happy.

SSUSA had 26 major teams in Phoenix. I believe that any one of those teams could have won the tournament, I feel they were all equal, there were a couple of games that went over 30 runs, but the majority were in the 18-25 range for all teams/games.

SSUSA has had a good set of rules for a long time, but to just crush them is insanity at its best. You had an equalizer rule in place for teams to get some playing time against teams of lower caliber, why don't you do the same thing for the major+ teams, let them play major, with major rules, give the major teams the equalizer of runs and then for the most part all it comes down to is the open inning. Just another suggestion......

Discussion: RULE CHANGES...COMMENTS

I am going to address my feelings on 2 rules:

I do not like the rule for HOME RUNS, as stated, and from the way the message board lit-up on the subject, there is going to have to be some middle ground. With the ball being better and the bat being better, I do believe the middle will see more balls than ever before, but if you have a pitcher like I have (Bobby Joerg), he welcomes the balls at him and I think anyone who pitches, pitches for a reason, they like being the center of a team, always touching the ball, always in the game doing something. The PITCHERS PROTECTION RULE is a good rule for the guy that is put there because nobody else wants to pitch. I like, Bobby loved being there, I wanted people to hit it at me until I could no longer handle the position, knees got to bad, now I coach. So thats what I think about the PITCHERS PROTECTION RULE. Now the HOME RUN subject, I think putting a limit on the home runs is not a bad idea, but making them outs is. Like I said above with the bats/balls being better almost anyone can hit them out of the park. Like Tate22 says: A single is a single whether it travels 350 feet or takes six bounces to reach the outfield. So to save the middle at least make them singles, you don't have to do progressive, once the 5 are gone then they should be singles only. At least try it, cause I think making such radical changes is a mistake. I was at both Phoenix and Vegas, and I think maybe this new home run rule might have been partly based on the cost of balls, and better yet the retreivale of them, which I hated to do, or have my players get tired from chasing balls rather than from playing the game. I like most sponsors would rather just give $50.00 for a dozen balls than chase them, then there would be no slowing down of the game and everyone would be happy.

Discussion: lav Vegas

Well, probally what we did this year, about 10 tournaments and league up here.
We played Seattle once, Olympia twice, Longview once, Portland twice, Salem, OR once (45 & over USSSA Nationals) Reno, Salt Lake, and Phoenix, I would like to go to California for something, and we will be in Vegas @ the Winter Nationals, which we don't usually do, cause the weather changes up here and we can't get out and practice.

We have a great bunch of guys that enjoy just getting together, talking, laughing, shooting the bull and then we go out and play softball, which is a bonus
