Discussion: VEGAS FIELDS

Correction: We will be playing all our games at Shadow Rock, since the Clark County Economy is booming, why doesn't the county invest some money to upgrade the fields at Shadow Rock? Simple upgrades, level the fields, water the fields, drag the fields, we are not asking for a field of dreams complex, but fields that are worthy of the $700/entry fee.
Thanks

Note: Clark County
Overview
With a population of more than 1.7 million, Clark County is home to the fastest growing city in the nation (Las Vegas). As the county continues to grow, opportunity and resources follow in step. Quality education beginning with the local school districts and enhanced by the University of Nevada, Las Vegas help produce and improve the workforce that supports growing industries in the area.
From education to technology, growth is prevalent in the county and technological growth is supported by a new fiber-based telecommunications infrastructure. Strong transit and transportations assist the local and regional economies while providing easy access to the 11 Western states and nearly 53 million people. Additionally, Clark County offers an exciting quality of life with countless entertainment outlets, cultural activities, and recreation including golf and outdoor opportunities with nearby Lake Mead, Red Rock and Mt. Charleston just to name a few.

Discussion: VEGAS FIELDS

Since we had 60 plus team in 50+ age bracket (AAA) playing in Las Vegas World Championship in 2014, is it time to
review the mix in the 50+ division:
50+ Major Plus- 15 teams,
50+ Major-31 teams,
50+ AAA- 62 teams, &
50+ AA- 8 teams.
Note: Is there a AAA+ rating on the horizon for the 50's?

Discussion: texas state championships

My recommendation would be to relocate the Texas State
Championship to Austin, TX., There is (11) field complex
at Krieg, with (9) of the fields that are 300 ft. Lots of
things to do in Austin. Austin has great airport to fly into, with all the major airlines serving it.

Discussion: ARC OF THE PITCHED BALL

Yes, assuming the hitter does not swing at an illegal pitch.
Also, in tournament and league play, umpires seem to call more illegal pitch when the ball exceeds the maximum arc of 12', than the minimum arc of 6'.

Discussion: Required Face Masks

What is the best slow pitch softball pitcher protection mask/helmet?
Some of the infielder's mask don't seem to have adequate
protection for a pitcher. Our pitcher has purchased
a pitcher's helmet that is designed specifically to protect the pitcher.

Discussion: Required Face Masks

Correction:
IS:
Our league does not require a pitcher to wear a mask.
We have some heavy hitters, that can really rip the ball.
Can a softball exceed 100 mph when traveling from the batter's box to the pitcher's rubber (50 ft)?

Discussion: Proposed changes in our local league

We had (4) teams in the 60's/65's league tournament bracket play double headers on Saturday. The results were:
1) one (1) team was 2-0
2) two (2) teams were 1-1
3) one (1) team was 0-2.
4) one (1) team did not play.
All of the games were competitive.

Discussion: Proposed changes in our local league

Our league (SASSL) has no draft, the league has created a
tournament team bracket to balance the league. We have
(5) teams in the tournament bracket, and we have (7) teams in the rec bracket. We have a team rating committee and we do have an equalizer rule in place. This is our first year
using this format. This will affect the 60s'+ teams only.
Without a draft in place, the league has attempted to create a level playing field.

Discussion: 2015 Las Vegas World Championship

The 2015 World is scheduled for a three (3) day tournament for the 65+ teams, will the tournament format change? We were playing four (4) seed
games and then a double elimination format. Will the 65+ teams be playing two (2) seed games and then a minimum of three (3) bracketed games?
Also, SPA allows 65 AA and AAA teams to play with eleven (11) defensive, I think it is a good idea.

Discussion: TOC follow up

Phoenix or Fort Myers would seem to be an ideal location for TOC, alternate between locations. Instead having a winter world and a winter national qualifier, one year have TOC in Phoenix and the following year have TOC in Ft. Myers. Having the TOC in November would allow more TOC qualified teams to play.

Discussion: TOC follow up

A quick calculation with a +/- of 25 teams, I calculated
that they were 325 (2014) TOC qualified teams that were eligible to play in the Tournament of Champions.

Note: SSUSA has a 2014 list of teams who qualified for
TOC, but I was not able to find it on the website.

Mad Dog, there were 115 teams that played in TOC, but there more teams than that who had qualified for TOC.

Discussion: TOC follow up

How many teams qualified for TOC in 2014? There were 115 teams that played in TOC, what percentage of the total number of teams who qualified played in TOC? The last 2014 TOC qualifier was Las Vegas in Oct., that is a (4) months break before TOC. What about scheduling
the TOC before any next years qualifier be played (Winter Nationals and Winter World).

Discussion: Dudley Lightning

What is up with the stickum substance on the Dudley bats? I seem to be doing a lot of cleaning, does this substance improve performance, durability and? Cleaning it can be a pain, I usually use just soap and water but doesn't seem to
work real well. Super Dave told me it was just an old age
thing, OCB.
