Topic: Tournaments
Discussion: Smokey Mtn Tournament

The ISSA ratings shouldn't surprise you, they are that away across the boards in all ages and divisions.

They are lowered to make teams think they are getting a break to play down in a lower division. They don't realize most of the other teams in their new divsion were also rated down to try and intice them to come to the ISSA tournaments.

There are a few occasions where SSUSA and SPA do not agree on a team's ratings (usually because of different showings in a SSUSA tournament compared to a SPA tournament or vice versa), but for the most part they do agree.

The reason they match is, regardless of what you think of the rating system, both SSUSA and SPA DO TAKE INTO consideration lots of different factors, input and results to make a decision. It is not just a "if I rate them lower maybe they will come to my tournament" reason for a rating.

If you want to go to those tournaments, you will pay the price.

Me I'll stick with SSUSA and SPA, where I know some thought actually went into the rating.

Is this the same ICE LADY who helped with running the SSUSA LOUISVILLE BLUEGRASS and SSUSA JIMMY CLARK Tournament?

Usually the SSUSA BRICKYARD is a well run tournament and I don't remember ever hearing many complaints about the tournament.

Anytime you have double elimination tournaments the pre-scheduling plans usually go out the window. I would give them another chance based on their previous tournaments.

However, that said, to avoid future problems like this you may want to check into ROUND ROBIN TOURNAMENTS where the schedule is locked in, possibley the 85-team AA and AAA Buckeye Classic Tournament.

Me, I would give the BRICKYARD another chance next year.

Discussion: SPA...Pull the plug on Springfield

No justification for what you guys are going through, I would probably react the same way. But just to set the record straight...this is only the second year SPA has run the Springfield tournament.

Don't know who had it the years prior to it.

Discussion: Looking for a team in SE Michigan

Bill:

There are a lot of travel teams and leagues in Michigan but to narrow your search you will have to list your age and what city (near-by) where you live.

After that you should get some good responses.

Another option is to go to the horizontal menu on this page and click on leagues. Then go to the Michigan area on the map, click it and you will find a few Michigan league contacts.

Hope this helps you.

They will probably have to wait awhile before facing him..heard he dislocated his shoulder patting himself on the back.

I know that is the order of finish of the top three teams (26 of them) but he is also looking for the finish of the other three teams that were in the Syracuse tournament.

Try this web page for the ISA order of finish (no scores)..they list the order of finish in each group (no record or scores)..the point total on the right shows you who finished in what order.

http://isasoftball.com/national-pasttourneys.html?mon=07

As for the SSUSA Northeast Championship at Syracuse..they only had 29 teams and they list the finish of 26 teams..with the process of elimination you can probably determone where the other three finished.

Again no scores for either but you can't have everything.

Discussion: "PRO" Softball late 1970's & early 1980's

The AMERICAN PROFESSIONAL SLOW PITCH LEAGUE (APSPL) began with 12 teams in 1977 and played through 1980. In 1981-1982 the UNITED PROFESSIONAL SOFTBALL LEAGUE (UPSL) was in existance.

Looks like a beer and pizza league with team names being DETROIT (LITTLE) CEASARS; MILWUAKKE SCHLITZ, CINCINNATTI SUDS; KY BOURBONS, etc.

You can go to the web page:

for more info on the teams and some players.

Discussion: What makes it a "Senior" bat???

Shelbyville (36 teams) and THEE Buckeye Classic (77) were full..DAYTON (32), SYLVANIA(36)and COLUMBUS (40) could have taken a few more. As I mentioned, all five were AA and AAA events.

Gary:

I can give you five tournaments who turned down teams, they were DAYTON FIRST FLIGHT; THEE BUCKEYE CLASSIC; HEART OF OHIO; SYLVANIA and HOOSIER CLASSIC.

Teams were turned down for various resaons but mainly ratings.

I can understand your problem..been there, done that.

I am sure there are others on this board who also have gone through the change from baseball and fast pitch to slow pitch and also have swung those table leg 38-0z...If not they do not know what they missed.

He probably had been doing it for awhile. I saw a guy who played minor A ball (penn/N.Y. League)try to make the switch when playing his first slow pitch game. He struck out three times ...throw his bat into the woods and I never saw hime again.

It isn't easy to make the adjustment right away...your hands are always ahead of your hips. Does make you a good opposite field hitters as you tend to try and hold back your swing.
