Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Offennsive Interference

Lots of discussion about rules, all good, player's safety sb the overriding factor, thus allowing all of us to play a sport that we all get a great deal of pleasure in playing. Umpires do have a tough job, especially when most of the games in league are umpired by one official. As long as players respect each other on the playing field, that factor along should reduce the number of interference calls.

Doak, good call on the inteference play at 2nd at our tournament game on Friday, we don't get that call in league play. Also, watch out for the Masked Man (Mad Dog), he can turn on a dime and give you some change.

Most of the baserunners do not slide, most of baserunners will avoid contact by running out of the basepath, that's good. We do have some players who seem to linger in the basepath after the force or they come into bag standing up. I guess the bottom line is, if the ump doesn't make a call, pivot and throw.

Discussion: Offennsive Interference

In league play we have offensive players who consistently are interfering with the 2nd baseman or SS trying to make the throw to turn a double play. Our umps seem to ignore it, they very seldom make the call for interference. Is it necessary for the defensive player to make the throw or should the ump make the call if an offensive player interferes with the defensive player ability to make the throw?

Discussion: The Passing of Steve Simmons

In 2009 our team, Texas Tornados, played in the Texas State Championship. I met Steve at the managers meeting. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Steve's family: The angels are always near to those who are grieving, to whisper to them that their loved ones are safe in the hand of God.

But just in case you were unable to find it:
LVSSA/SSUSA WORLD MASTERS 2012 • ROSTER CONSIDERATIONS
The LVSSA/SSUSA World Masters Championships is the premier event on the SSUSA Tournament
calendar. Teams participating in the World Masters must designate a “Qualifying Roster” from a prior SSUSA event to be used as the starting point for their World Masters roster.The SSUSA believes that –

a. Participating teams should play at the World Masters with the same roster, or as close as reasonably possible, to the roster they used in their designated Qualifying tournament. There is a ‘level playing field’ only with continuity in roster composition from the Qualifying roster
to the World Masters roster;

b. Due to a variety of legitimate circumstances, some teams may not be able to bring the exact same players to the World Masters that were on their Qualifying roster;

c. There be provisions in the rules to fairly address the roster issues facing some teams; and

d. Any team participating in the World Masters with ‘roster exemption players’ should have up to five reserves available on their roster.
Thus, teams that add players, and normally play with ten defensive players, will have a roster limit of 15 players, and teams that normally play with 11 defensive players will have a roster limit of 16 players. NOTE: An invited team may have more than 15/16 players on its World Masters roster if that team is not adding ‘roster exemption players’ for the World Masters.

“Special Roster Rules” For All Men’s and Women’s Divisions –
e. If a participating team has at least 15 (or 16, depending on the number of defensive players
normally used) from the original Qualifying roster planning on attending the World Masters, that team is prohibited from adding ‘roster exemption players’;

f. If a participating team has less than six players remaining from the original Qualifying roster, that team is considered a ‘new team’ and is not eligible to participate in the 2012 World Masters;

g. Managers may request to add players who are regular members of the team, but were not able to attend the Qualifying tournament. Managers must APPLY to SSUSA for approval of these players in writing before September 10, 2012. These players are approved or denied on an individual basis;

h. If a participating team's roster falls below 12/13 players, the team MAY APPLY TO ADD players until it reaches the 12/13 player level. These players must be from the SAME age group in the SAME or LOWER skill level. Managers must APPLY to SSUSA for approval of these players in writing before September 10, 2012. These players are approved or denied on an individual
basis.

i. If a participating team's roster falls below the 15/16 limit, the team will be able to add players until it reaches the 15/16 player level. These players must be from the next OLDER age group in the SAME or LOWER skill level. Managers must notify SSUSA in writing before September 10, 2012, of the players the team is adding;

j. Any player from the original Qualifying roster not planning to attend the World Masters and who’s spot on the World Masters roster was filled by a ‘roster exemption player’ is considered removed from the Qualifying roster. That player is not eligible to participate in the World
Masters unless a recently added ‘roster exemption player’ is removed from the World Masters roster and the original player is reinstated to both rosters, thereby maintaining the 15/16 player roster limit; and

k. Women’s Senior teams and Men’s 80+ teams are generally exempt from these Qualifying
roster provisions and may add otherwise eligible (as to age and residency) players to their World Masters roster, up to a maximum of 20 players.
‘Roster Exemption Player’ requests may be sent to the SSUSA by e-mail to info@seniorsoftball.com or by fax to (916) 326.5304. Congratulations to the invited teams and Good Luck in Las Vegas!

Discussion: My Daughter

Thanks everyone for your prayers and kind words. My daughter is doing better she has been released from ICU and is at Rehab center getting stronger so that she can be ready for a new set of lungs:
I’m Jacki and I am 36 years old. A bit over 4 years ago I had a double lung transplant at the University of California, San Francisco, due to idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension. In early 2012, I was diagnosed with acute rejection and donor-specific rejection with HLA antibodies. The resulting bronchiolitis obliterans is the real mechanical problem after all the damage from the HLA antibodies.

From late February 2012 to May 2012, I went from dancing 3 times a week, going out, traveling and enjoying life to being basically homebound on supplemental oxygen 24/7. This is a real test for someone who detests routine and a monotone life! My sweet boyfriend Giraffe went out and bought me a Playstation 3 so I could escape a little bit. Little did he know I would soon be humiliating him in Tekken 6.

It is very hard to get through every day, but I feel supported and loved by my family, friends and my boyfriend and his super-supportive family. Also, thank goodness for dreams and imagination….I have to live with those two things a lot more now that I don’t have my body.

Now I am living in Lausanne, Switzerland with Giraffe waiting for my 2nd transplant at CHUV. This blog is to pass the time (I have nothing but time!) and perhaps other people waiting for transplants will find my blog and can relate and share.

Let's let Dave or Terry comment on adding player(s) to a qualifing roster for the world championship because of the complexity of the rule. Couple of things, how many players are on the qualifing roster for the team that you want to play for, what is age and rating of that team.

There is some wiggle room in adding players to play in the world championship, see 4.2 (2) in the rule book.

Discussion: OPEN MRI MACHINE-STAND UP OR SIT DOWN

The ultimate MRI Machine, stand up or sit down, open open open, not a torture chamber, watch the news on a large screen and it's over 20-25 minutes (American Dynamic Imaging in San Antonio). I had a lumbar MRI there today, and I will not go anywhere else.

Discussion: My Daughter

Life isn't always a game of softball, sometimes life challenges seem overwhelming: My Daughter, Jacki, had a good day after receiving an immunoglobin treatment. Her plasmaferase treatments leave her exhausted and temporarily anemic, so the IVIG treatments relieve the fatigue and breathing difficulties. She forces herself to sit...up in a chair for several hours a day so to keep her ab muscles strong and increase her respiration. In a nutshell, her mobilization has improved.
Her pneumology team has requested that she be placed on the emergency priority list for a lung transplant. Normally one has to be intubated to do it, but the docs said 'there are ways around this.' The team's logic is that she is young (36 yrs), has a better chance of survival than most on the list (50 yrs +) and that she is wasting her young life being 100% incapacitated. The biggest criteria is chance of survival and that is why gaining weight and muscle strengthening are vital.
I believe if the transplant network approves the request this will give Jackie the mental boost to continue with getting stronger and stronger. These lungs might come sooner and she needs to be ready for them.

I see that we have nine (9) teams in the 60's division, seven (7) AAA and two (2) AA teams, should be a competitive division. Looking forward to playing and attending the social at Day's Inn on Thursday. I believe some of the teams will be playing two (2) bracketed games after their two (2)seed games.
