Discussion: Las Vegas 40+ World's

Hey Guy. Great hearing from you. Talked to Scott Sharp last night and with the team you guys are bringing out I would jump right into Major as I believe in AAA home runs over the limit are outs in AAA but in Major only walks. With the bats you guys will have plenty of power and your defense will be solid as well. Playing in that tournament league will be a great warm-up.

Glad to hear you guys are going to play. Great team and group of guys. How many of the original guys are going to play?
As for the competition in the 40's, it's tough. Most of the guys playing are still playing kids ball so they are in great shape. Combine that with the fact they're swinging senior bats and there are some rockets being hit. Most pitchers are wearing face masks and some sort of shin guards, so come prepared. Bottom line is you'll have a blast. Hope to see you guys out there.

Hey Johnny,
What was the format? Did they place all the 55's in a single division and use the equalizer?

Discussion: Major Plus

Not sure about combining Major and Major Plus. I believe the mistake SSUSA made was aloowing Home Runs over the limit to be walks in the Major division. Without the penalty of excess home runs being outs fewer teams that are loaded with power hitters will want to move up. Make Major Plus more appealing by making it the ONLY division where home runs over the limit are walks.

Discussion: Seeding Games

Three seeding games and double elimination, but if they offer more I would take it. It's tough to travel someplace to play in a tournament and play 1 or 2 times in a day.

Discussion: How can SSUSA possibly reclassify an established Major+ team

Look at the bright side. Should they be fortunate enough to win, I'm sure SSUSA will move them right back to M+.

Well as it's not January or June, maybe it's a typo?

Now if they would just tell us where we are playing for sure. It says after March 9th but not how long after March 9th..........
Looks like 55s are both. Would be nice to know for sure.

Discussion: WHAT IS A MAJOR PLUS PLAYER?

Well Said Tim. Also just like golf, Technology has made it easier to hit the ball without having to work on your game. Little skill is required these days to mash a softball. It's a little different than when you were trying to hit with your Howards Western Steer that's for sure. If hyou didn't work at it you weren't very good.

Discussion: WHAT IS A MAJOR PLUS PLAYER?

Played in 55 Major. Enjoyed the 1-1 count. It does keep the game moving and gets everyone more AB's and play more innings. Wish SSUSA would adopt the rule. I also like the 1 up rule but feel in Major it should be an out not a single when your out of HR's. If you want to hit more HR's play Major +. The 5 runs and 1 up did enable some of the Major teams to hang with the Major + teams. Only downside was the long wait between games on Sunday. 8:00 first game and 2:00 second.
I would most certainly play in this tournament again.

As for me I think St. George has the better facilities.

Be nice if they let you know where you are playing BEFORE all the rooms sod out. I guess that make too much sense.

Discussion: Grading the Rule Changes

I think that home runs ovet the limit in Major Division should be outs. If you want to grow the + divisions make rules that will entice and reward people and teams for moving up.

I have a 26oz. in excellent condition I've been sitting on for a few years now. Looks like I may just have to sell it.......

Discussion: cheater bats

I think it's a good rule. It's the only way to attempt to catch bat cheats. If your bats good you get it back, if it's not well you get a little suspension and hopefully sued. Something needs to be done.
NSA is adopting the new bat standard in 2015.

Discussion: cheater bats

I have seen the problem playing and officiating games in Vegas. Good clue is five or six guys sharing the same bat.
I had a young guy playing next to me helping position me in the outfield because he knew which guys were swinging hot bats. And when I say hot I mean these things are hotter than our senior models. It's crazy. The new bat standard should help but only time will tell. The new 2013 bats meet the new standard but I believe only USSA is enforcing it this year. It seems the cheaters are going to make the bat companies a ton of money.
There is a rule in NSA that states any batted ball that strikes and injures ANY defensive play causing an injury that forces him to leave the game, the bat will be confiscated. It is given a compression test and if it fails is sent to the manufacturer who makes the final determination as to whether the bat has been altered or not. So I guess staying out of the middle may not save the cheaters in some cases.

Discussion: rumor has it

Played in the 50 Major and went out Sunday and watched the finals and I don't think the top four finishers would stand much of a chance of competing in Major Plus much less the top 10.

1. Get one of the many software programs available and laptops with aircards at every site to speed up the seeding process. Watching the guys try to do it by hand was painful. This would also make it easier to keep the brackets at each site up to date.
2. Never use Cheyenne Park
3. Put a little water on the Infields once in awhile.

Great Tournament

Bought the new 2 piece Miken and used it in Vegas this weekend. The bat feels great and performed well. Have to wait and see how long it lasts.
