Discussion: Major Plus

idahoreb - If you're team loves playing the game the way it was intended, why would you give 5 runs to a team that they did not earn? More teams are starting to take the 11 defensive players instead of the "fake runs" because at least you have to make a play and earn your equalizer instead of getting something for free. If a lower team does manage to beat a higher team this way they at least can say the earned it. If you "beat" someone 25-22 and really only scored 20, do you feel good about that victory?

SSUSA thought by making the AAA HR rule DBO's after 3 that teams would move up to Major on their own because of the "walk" rule after 6 HR's. The trouble is they didn't move enough teams up to Major+, leaving a lot of good Major teams left in the division that the AAA teams felt they can't compete with.

Discussion: Major vs AAA- "Equalizer rules"- 55+ division (or all other divisions)

Parman, you are right, 5 runs is a lot to make up against good teams that possibly should be moved up. If a team wants their "fake runs", they should have to play with the upper teams HR rule.

Maybe it's time to extend this huge tournament to yet another weekend (Dave would love that) and just play at Golden Eagle. No other complex compares to GE and everyone would like to play there. They just made it too nice!

Swing, have you guys moved up? You are still listed as a Major team.

Taits, you are correct. I was thinking of the RR format when each division has about 5-6 teams in it and the same age group. Kind of like NCSSA does, but then after RR play, the #2 team plays the #1 team for the championship. The #2 has to beat the #1 team twice.

Play a round robin format with ALL the games counting!

Discussion: How can SSUSA possibly reclassify an established Major+ team

It does seem that a few teams are always getting reclassified down. They win at a higher class and a few months later, they are right back down again. Three teams come to mind that they have been up and down in the past five years.

Or useless patches, lol. Shane does not determine the classifications, the Sacramento brass does that. He just provides a place for everyone to play here locally and even though there are WAY too many divisions/classes, does a great job of running these events. I don't know what we would do without him!

I'm sure you have your reasons, but Dallas Texas to Eugene Oregon? Weather sucks up here!

As much as I like a buffet, any other comments about the bat's performance?

Discussion: SSUSA BANNED BATS

Last year in a early season practice one of our players brought a titanium bat out for BP. The performance was no where near what we get out of our current senior bats, with the current balls.

Discussion: Not Pleased with Rating System

They didn't move up enough top Major teams to Major-plus to make it so the top AAA teams would WANT to move up to Major.

Good points, Garocket, although the part about the older teams seeing how the 1 and 1 count would pretty much get 7 innings in every time, still wouldn't convince the older teams that this is the way to go. They are set in their ways. Only time will make that happen, and it will eventually.

For the 1000th time, the 1 and 1 count replaces the dead time everyone stands around watching batters take pitches with playing action. We are not looking to shorten the games! 10 minutes of playing time replacing 10 minutes of dead time sounds pretty good.

Discussion: 1-1 count no extra foul tourney

A lot of people just don't understand what the 1 and 1 count can do. Actually the majority of the younger groups do, but the older ones are just set in their ways. Could have compromised very easily making the pool games 1 and 1 to show everyone how it works.

Remember, we are NOT trying to speed up the game per se, just trying to get more game action in the time alloted.

Marv19, Good points! It's just so obvious that we would get more playing action with a 1-1 count!

Discussion: More 1-1 Count Talk

Swing, I agree with your one courtesy runner per inning, but if I participated in an older group, I probably would think differently about that. This is yet another example of why there can't be the exact same rules for players aged 40 to 80.

It's just what they have known, wagon. Most people don't like to change anything, even if the 1-1 count gives us more game action.
