Discussion: Got a empty box in the mail

Dissapearing bat located! The bat was found at a UPS terminal and luckily I had the serial number photoed and could identify the bat.

Still wonder how the bat came out of the box. Package was sealed with brown tape and it had clear tape over the brown tape on the box when delivered. I ship many bats I do know how to tape a box. I am sure it was just an accident.

Doesn't matter now, the bat is on the way back to Florida, Zman refunded, and the bat will find another happy owner.

Zman said he has located another bat, more money though. I must have sold my bat too cheap.

I am sure Zman will post that his Empty Box problem has been handled. Filed claim with UPS and refunded within 5 minutes of hearing of the missing contents in the box. If anyone can help Zman with an Ultra II 28, with ASA stamps, please inform him.

Discussion: 2012 Tournament Entry Fee Increase

Brett: We can now factor in the cost of softballs at 2012 tournaments. Winter National teams received (6) new balls for the tournament and if they needed additional balls, the cost was $5.00 each ($60 a dozen).

Discussion: 65 age playing in 60 division

It seems that there is a differce in eligibility between SSUSA and SPA as to playing in two age divisions. My questions is:

Is a player allowed to play on a 65 AAA and a 60 Major team?

Example: Played in a National event with 60 Major and has already qualified for nationals with a 65 AAA team. Can the player play still play with the 65 AAA?

Discussion: When is an equalizer not equal???

Bruce -- Senior Moments 65's decided to withdraw when the schedule was released on Monday before our travel day of Thursday and there were only 12 teams entered. (no refund, but we got a FREE ($500) bat for being one of the first 20 teams entered.

After reviewing the schedule, there were 14 of 18 seeding games schedluled with "equalizers". Our bracket play would include a 75+ team with a double equalizer. It was not worth the $400 to $600 per player in expenses to attend such an event.

This type of event does not benefit anyone or promote senior softball. Sometimes is is better to "cut your loses" and cancel an event. We made the decision to not attend, costing us our $500 entry fee , but we will remember it when planning our tournament attendance in the future.

Discussion: Option to withdraw????

Bruce -- The Aiken registration deadline was extended a week and a free Combat bat was used as an incentive to enter. I attempted to get information about which teams would be attending and no one would inform me.

The schedule was released 5 days before the start of the tournament. Reviewing the list of 12 total teams it indicated that there were 4 symbols denoting "equalizer" games. This meant 14 of the 18 seeding games were playing with an "equalizer". All brackets would be using an "equalizer" in bracket play except the 70 Major Plus. What kind of tournament competition is this?

Senior Moments 65 decided to withdraw for "competition" and "economic" reasons. While I wholly disagree with the SSUSA refund policy, it became evident we could save each player $400-$600 by withdrawing and not playing a 75 age group team.

I feel that communication between the Tournament Directors and the teams would benefit everyone. Why not release a list of teams 2 weeks before the tournament date and allow teams to spend their money wisely? My suggestion would be to allow teams to withdraw if their bracket play did not have a minimum of 4 teams of the same class in their bracket.

The fact is, with the current refund policy, the TD makes more money when a team withdraws.

I wish all the teams that are playing the best.

Discussion: Pensacola

Bruce -- The Pensacola scheduling was not the best in many ways, late games on Sunday for the 50-60 Divisions being just one of them.
#1 -- Pensacola's first attempt at playing the "play-back" 5 game guarantee.
#2 -- Teams still playing after their 5 game guarantee and 2 bracket loses.
#3 -- Directors were under the impression that it was a "triple" elimination format until it was pointed out that the brackets were incorrect.
#4 -- Fields were empty while teams were sitting and waiting to play. (No Umpires)
#5 -- Teams playing down 2 brackets and getting the 5 run equalizer
Example: 70 Major Plus played 65 AAA and received the equalizer, plus 11 defensive players.

I hope Mike and the Pensacola hosts will review this tournament and learn from it. I enjoy playing in Pensacola and this will not deter us from returning.

Discussion: tournaments for league bats only

The 60+ Senior League in Orlando has to play by ASA rules. Meaning ASA bats and 44/375 balls.

As always, some players cannot afford the better ASA bats and others take extra measures to "Improve" their bats.

We are implementing a "league bat" concept. We bought 4 ASA bats (26,27,28,30) that all teams must use, no exceptions. The bats are kept on a rack behind home plate for each team's use.

No more complaining about an unfair advantage due to bats.

the Veteran bat.

How could you give an unbiased
review of the bat? Appears
to me as a sales pitch.
