Discussion: Jose and Ozzie Canseco looking to play 50 and over together in Las Vegas September tournament

Wouldn't they have to QUALIFY to be able to play on a team?

No one needs to chill the balls or doctor the bats, but it is still being done.

The one-up rule would be good for EVERYONE!

Discussion: player classification

There are a lot of players and teams that try to get away with basically cheating the system of player elgibility and SSUSA is always trying to combat those issues.

There are exceptions to every situation and it sounds like twin motors has a valid one. I would suggest you get in contact with the brass and tell them your situation again.

Discussion: New DBO HR rules for 2014

Combining Major and Major-plus would be possible only if there was a relatively low HR rule with DBO's, 5 runs an inning and elimination of the 2 players out of the bordering states exception that Major-plus currently has. An 11th defensive player for everyone 50+ on up, like 70+ has would help protect the pitchers to some extent.

Another alternative would be to let teams at the Major-plus level play unlimited everything ... unlimited HR's, unlimited runs and unlimited players from anywhere. However, if this was the case, SSUSA could not MAKE any Major team move up to Major-plus if they choose not to, provided they play within the restricted participation rule of no players outside their bordering states.

Discussion: Pitching masks revisited

Then the question is what to do about it? There are many more balls going up the middle than before and the law of averages say that someone is really going to get hurt. They changed the rules way too much, a middle of the road solution would have worked better. Possibly the HR rule should be raised back up a bit before the DBO comes into effect and/or the 11th defensive player put into play.

Discussion: Pitching masks revisited

I agree with garyheifner and have been saying for a while to play with 11 defenders at ALL senior levels. Don't know about rules on where defenders have to be positioned, but 11 defenders would help protect the pitchers and also keep the scores lower (games moving along) by not having to go with a 3 man outfield.

Discussion: Pitching masks revisited

In the two tournaments I have played so far this season, I have seen more balls hit up the middle than I saw all of last year! I don't pitch, but have been told that vision is a problem.

Discussion: Can someone tell me why DeMarini Black Ops bag is so expensive

Big Mike, regarding your bat bag getting beaten up the airlines (and they do) ... go out and purchase a duffle bag from an Army/Navy surplus store. Stick the bat bag in it right before you check in and and take it out after baggage claim. This will help the life span of whatever bat bag you have!

Discussion: players please respond to rule changes

If they are going to make over the limit HR's outs, at least up the number of HR's allowed some!

Discussion: SSUSA AND SPA MEETINGS

Let Major+ rules go unlimited in everything, runs, HR's, players outside bordering states, etc. Let other teams that can't compete finacially with teams that have unlimited budgets play Major or below. Make the HR rule 8 in Major, 4 in AAA and 2 in AA. Over the limit would be DBO's in all divisions except Major+.

Discussion: starting a 50 major team

tightline, since you live in Montana, there aren't too many Major teams that can have you on their roster since Montana only borders Idaho, Wyoming, North and South Dakota, I guess Canada too. Don't think there are many senior teams there let alone Major ones. You would probably have to get on a Major+ team where they can have up to two players outside their bordering states.

Discussion: Something to consider!

I think they just want to get the dates out there for everyone, we all always like to know that ASAP. I'm sure the costs are subject to change for 2014, I don't think they are set in stone yet.

Discussion: Corky

What a convienence to have Corky at the various sites. He even gave a ride back to the hotel from Golden Eagle to a player that had one too many up in the bar and got separated from his team (not me). Like everything now days, it seems that the personal touch is losing out to economics.

Discussion: Can a new 50 player play in the TOC with a team that has previously qualified?

Duke and Brock, It is my understanding also that the reason for the TOC being held in February is some kind of contract. It does seem rather obvious that it should be held in November or December with the "Winter" Nationals being held in following year ... in the winter months! The TOC is never even a consideration for us because of the time of year it is played.

Discussion: 11th defender

I believe that 11 defenders are allowed after 70+. I would like to see 11 defenders in all age groups, 5 man infield with the 4 man outfield.

Discussion: Suspensions

I always thought that the youngest division should start at 45, not 40. Then it would be easy for the 45's to play the top 50's. Anyway, since the 40's are here and getting established like ShaneV states, it's good that SSUSA has finally done something about this behavior that cannot be tolerated ... at any level.

Topic: Tournaments
Discussion: playing in different age groups

I'll point this out again ... the rating index is a pretty accurate EXCEPT it's based on 5 year increments, therefore a 40 AAA team should be a 9 instead of a 8, a 40 Major team should be a 10 instead of a 9 and a 40 Major+ team should be an 11 instead of a 10.

No way should a 50 Major+ team be equal to a 40 Major team. A 50 Major+ team is equal to a 40 AAA team. If there was a 45 year old age group that would be different, but we're talking 10 years here, and because of that the difference should be 2 points not 1.
