Discussion: Time to move TOC

One of the drawbacks for teams in this event is some teams lose players from the previous year. They quit, retire or go to a different team.
In our case (OKI) we qualified but we had 2 or 3 players who weren't ready because of post 2013 season surgeries and our shortstop tragically passed away in November. I don't think the rules allow for more than 1 replacement, but I could be mistaken on that.

Discussion: gloves on throwing hand

Besides the Super Bowl a glove on the throwing worked out pretty well for Peyton Manning!!

Discussion: You make the call part 643

I suppose if a baserunner was rounding third and tripped over the bag or stumbled and fell into the third base coach that would be an exception. It is a judgement call.

Paul P, I have an out on that runner. Whether it's accidental or not base coaches cannot contact baserunners who are running the bases--in USSSA. I cannot imagine SSUSA being different but then who knows?

Discussion: Runner Hit by Batted Ball

Paul P, USSSA rules are where the spot of the ball is when it hits the runner. If ball is in fair territory that is a fair ball. if its in foul territory it's a foul ball. SSISA may be different.

Discussion: Home Run Rule

INHOC2,
Picture you being on a AAA team playing a major team and you choose the 5 run equalizer and in this game your the home team. It's the 6th inning and due to time limit it's the open inning. If the score is tied after the top half of the inning you don't even have to bat because you get the 1 run which gives you the win!!
That's the uniqueness of senior softball!!

Discussion: Swing Makeover #12.Using a Double Knobcuff for max power and the 70's Senior Bomb Squad from St. Petersburg, Fl

There is nothing in the rules that specifically states anything about the double knob. However there is a rule that says excessive tape (more than two layers) on a bat handle is considered altering a bat. Since a double knob could be thought of as adding a layer to the bat handle would a double knob also be considered altering a bat? Don't know.
SSUSA Staff, are you out there? lol

Is that double knob legal for tournament play?

Discussion: Teams leaving SSUSA?

Mango, I'll make you a deal. Normally I don't speak for all of our guys but if you guys can arrange to pay for all of our transportation costs we (OKI) will be happy to come out to California and play in that smasher tournament. :)
Hope all is well with you and yours!!

Discussion: STAFF question on scoring of runs

B.J. the scenario SSUSA staff posted indicates the defensive team is appealing to the umpire that the runner on first never tagged up on the fly ball. In a league game I was umpiring earlier this year one play had runners on 2nd and 3rd, 1 out. Fly ball to deep left center. Catch is made, 2 outs. Runner at third scores--good tag. Runner at second does a double tag but I noticed he left way early. Throw comes in to the shortstop who bobbles it then picks it up and throws home late. Secondbaseman is screaming the runner at second left early. The ball is then thrown to second who steps on the bag. I have an out but the run at third scores. That is an example live ball appeal.

Discussion: HR rule - why????

Mad Dog I must take issue with your statement that teams like Resmondo don't light up the pitcher. I've umpired a few conference tournaments and I've witnessed pitchers getting lit up--big time. Whether it's intentional or not is another story but it does happen.

Discussion: HR rule - why????

PattyMac raises a great question. The individuals who voted for SSUSA to change the over the limit hr rule from a walk to a dead ball out must have an intent or rationale for that. I am also interested in finding out what that was.

Discussion: New rule

Does anyone remember the middle hitting rule from a couple years ago? That rule did not go over very well and I suspect this new pitching mask rule, while I'm sure will be given every opportunity to succeed, will meet the same fate.
Does anyone find a lot of pitchers wearing pitching masks in their travels to senior softball tournaments? Myself I see very very few.

Discussion: SSUSA AND SPA MEETINGS

I've long felt when a team plays a team one level below them there should not be any giving of 5 runs or an extra fielder. The only thing I would advocate is before the game give the lower team their choice of what home run rule they wish to play with.

Discussion: What do you do for arthritis

Although the above mentioned methods may combat arthritis there is no real concrete cure. If there was it wouldn't be a s widespread. The way I figure it is if I'm going to have to deal with arthritis issues I may as well do it with a smile on my face :)

Discussion: Looking for a 50 Major + team

That's good news and thanks for the props Olie. Back at you guys with those!! The Rev sure is one strong hitter isn't he? At this juncture we (OKI) are quite saddened & in utter disbelief at the recent passing of our shortstop. Not only a great player but more importantly a true gentleman--he will be missed. His shoes will be difficult to fill but we'll try the best we can.
Hope santa is good to all you guys!!
