Discussion: Elegiblity

Ceres, Mr. Tait answered more than you asked for. Simply put, as a AAA player, you can play for a AA team in the same age bracket. If that team does not have on their roster more than 3 AAA players. If the AA team has more than 3, then they will be moved up to AAA.

The other item that Mr. Tait addressed, is a different issue, and the number is 6.

Discussion: Are walks hits in Senior Softball?

I am not going to get into how to compute batting average, on-base percentage, or slugging percentage. As Billy Beane sees it, on-base percentage is most valuable in the long run. For the last 10 years on teams that I coach, I have only kept on-base percentage, which I included walks and errors. Mostly, because too many players were too concerned about how a batted ball was scored, a hit or an error. Too many arguments, so I decided to get rid of all that, and only be concerned about on-base percentage, then all the arguments/disagreements went away. What a pleasure, so now go out and concentrate on what you need to do to help your team win a game and have fun.

Dean'o, It is being worked on right now. I would guess that the 2015 schedule will be out within the next 1-2 weeks. Hopefully, some time around Thanksgiving.

Hey Jerry, great season for you guys as well, thanks. Gary and I are looking to sub on a 65 AAA team this season for 2-3 tournaments. Mostly, 2-3 of the larger tournaments. No one local seems to have a need. Probably because Gary is too short. LOL! Our 60 Major team is staying together this season. Have to concentrate on this season for now. Surprised OTE is not going to Phoenix. Guess you cannot go to every tournament. Good luck this season!

Unfortunately, the trend did not continue, as there are only 6 60 Major teams this year. 6 teams is not too bad. It will give us time to enjoy what Phoenix has to offer us and watch our friends play. Look forward to seeing you out there.

Funny guy Jerry! I know they just put that there within the last 1-3 days, as I have checked many times. Hopefully, at least 8 or more of the 18 teams will show up. See you there or at the Phoenix Worlds or maybe January in Menifee.

Let's try to have at least 8 teams. Spending all of that money to play a best 2 out of 3 is a waste of time and money. The tournament is only 28 days away.

Discussion: 2014 World Masters

neck10, I agree with you. We do need to make this tournament a 4 day event as in the past. Too many games to be played in the losers bracket, not to mention the winners bracket. Not much time to enjoy the city and get some rest. I would probably include the Reno tournament in this too. Other than that, this was an excellently run tournament, especially with this many teams.

Discussion: Brackets for October 3, 4, and 5??

Hey Dave, still no brackets for the 55 AAA division. I know it is on the master grid, but that does not distiguish between the winner's and loser's bracket. At this point in time, I am not going to be able to get this. Would it be possible for someone to make about 10 copies for our team, when our manager picks up our information at the manager's meeting? All other brackets are posted. My team will be traling late tonight and early morning Thursday.

Thanks in advance!

DoubleL10, Not a problem. Actually, the 55AAA and 55 Major have no brackets yet. In fact, I do not see any brackets for any of the 60 teams either. Now that this large tournament has begun, we might not get it until the manager's meeting. This would be the first time that this has happened. I know it is a lot of work. It is what it is.

DoubleL10, The bracket games are not posted. Only the seeding games are posted. If they are posted some where else, please let me know where, thanks. You are correct, we are playing at the BLD.

Are we going to get the brackets before the manager's meeting? I have to be able to plan my meals for the weekend. LOL!

Discussion: team eligibility

After the Vegas Worlds, you can complete an application online from this web site, or call up to the SSUSA office and apply over the phone with a credit/debit card. You can also mail in that application. If you do nothing, SSUSA will automatically send you a renewal request for a 65 card. Sometimes it can be a slow process to receive your new card, but you can still play for a 65 team while it is in limbo. SSUSA knows you are current and your age, once a 65 team submits its roster. Therefore, it is not a problem. Again, wait till after the Vegas Worlds is completed. I am in the same situation as you this year.

Discussion: Too hot in the Valley?...

I am going to Morro Bay this weekend. I cannot wait to get there for some cooler weather. It should be in the mid 70's to low 80's. There are many R & R teams. The one that I play with is going to the Vegas Worlds October 3-5. What team are you playing with this weekend, and I will try to stop by and say hi.

If you know in advance and book early, the motel 6 is $89 per night at the seior rate. You do not have to move your car the entire weekend. The sandy fields and holes in the outfield is accurate. You forgot to mention that the fog rolls in around 7:30PM.

Omar, it does not get much better than the price you received. Payless seems to be the cheapest at most locations lately.
