If I really want to know the game scores of the teams I like - I do what softball4b does - CALL SOMEONE!
EVERY TOURNAMENT WE GO THROUGH THIS AGAIN! IT'S ABOUT TIME WE WAIT FOR THE RESULTS TO BE POSTED!
AND, LAZER7, I BET A 50AAA TEAM WON!

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH - QUIT BITCHING & FEEL LUCKY WE CAN STILL PLAY THIS GAME AT OUR AGE!

CHIEF OUT!

Railice96, I see from the number of posts you have made you are a newbie. While we do have to wait for the results sometimes I can guarantee it is not because SSUSA doesn't want to do it, there is just not the personnel or time at most tournaments.
It is much more complicated than JUST posting scores! Take session 1: 203 teams, 652 games at 12 different sites. At best there is 1 tournament director & 1 ass't director at each site, they have to compile the scores after all the games & get them to the SSUSA person who does the input. Who, by the way is a director at one of the sites. Oh, session 1 also had some rain problems thrown in as well.
FYI: session 2 has 127 teams, 490 games @ 12 sites; session 3 has 175 teams, 571 games @ 9 sites! Tournament totals: 503 teams, 1713 games @ 12 sites.
Yes, we all want the results ASAP, but making snide remarks about soup cans does not help anyone!
I was always taught that if you didn't like the way something was being done, make a suggestion as to how it can be made better!
Thanks,
Chief

Our team has been going for almost 20 years. Yes, there is sandbagging at all levels and it seems there is no set way to rate the teams. We just come and play to have fun. We have won, we have lost, but we enjoy playing. We now come over from Las Vegas for a 2 week "experience"!

The way I read the minutes it looks like 65s & 70s are the only ages that CAN'T be on two rosters!
Why is that?

I have emailed NCSSA (NORCAL) to try to find out when the 2014 schedule may be released.Have not received an answer.
Does anyone have an idea when the schedule may be out? Teams are trying to make plans for 2014.
Thanks

Discussion: Playing after knee replacement?

I had my right knee replaced on July 22nd, 4 months ago tomorrow. Surgery went well. spent 1 1/2 days in hospital. woke up with motion machine bending my knee, used it for the 1st 3 wks. Started PT 1 week after surgery. By the way I lost 25 lbs before surgery, 225 - 200 which helps take a great deal of pressure off the knee! Went right to 105ROM, then STOPPED! Had to go back under for a manipulation, put me under & the Dr bent the knee for me!! Put me back about 2 weeks, gave me a cortisone shot & I am now at 125+ ROM & gaining more each day. I have been riding my bike 5 miles + everyday, ellipical ea day. Went to batting practice 2 wks ago, 1st time up it was all arms! Then it became more natural and got some nice line drives.(My type of hits)
PT is a must! Have to do ALL of the exercises at home if you want to improve.
Plan to be on the field in early spring!
Good luck with your surgery.

Discussion: finding results of tournies

Well, it didn't take long before people started complaining about results being posted. I don't know how much you know about running a tournament with 132 teams, all of the coaches, players, etc. If you did, you might understand why the results don't get posted right away.
Most of the time there is 1 TD at each site and he is busy answering questions from coaches, players, wives, and even umpires. They work long hours, not just the 2 games you show up to play, which most likely are on time and you don't even realize the TD is there!
I am sure SSUSA would be glad to take your suggestion about having someone at each venue to post scores on the iPad you have provided and will pay their expenses for the tournament.
The results are usually posted within 2 weeks of the event. Sometimes when you have two tournaments back to back, across the country, it might take a little longer.
Just relax, play some softball, have fun, and Bless the Lord that you are still able to play this game!
Just my opinion!

Discussion: 40's and 50's session #3

Ok, here we go again! SSUSA publishes the play dates for each age group when they post the master schedule. Then, most of the time, we get a "tentative" list of where that age group "may" play a few weeks in advance. If our age group, 65M is scheduled to play Mon - Thur, we assume we will be playing an early game on the 1st day. That way you are all there no matter what time you may play. If you gat a later start time, good for your team, sleep in or find a place to bat. I always tell our team that since we will be in the championship and/or the "if" game, don't plan on leaving before 5pm on the last day. That way EVERYONE knows how to schedule travel, hotels, etc. this process has worked for us for over 10 years playing 60s - 65s. I know it is harder on the younger age groups because of work, etc. However, I would want my team here, ready to play early on the 1st day. That way if some travel problems arise, no problem, you have some extra time to get everyone to the tournament, ready to play.
AND BESIDES ALL OF THAT, IT IS NO EASY TASK TO DEVELOP A SCHEDULE FOR 485 TEAMS!
Thanks and have fun in Vegas!!!

Discussion: Las Vegas Schedule

Read deal needs to get "real"!! If you are waiting until the schedule comes out to make plans, you are the one to blame! You have a great idea of where you are going to be playing, hotels have listed how far away each park is and Dave does everything he can not to change where you are playing. He has no control over that until all the entries are received and team have stopped dropping, etc.
Looks like you are a 60 team, you have to be there ready to,play on Friday at 8am & plan on leaving after 5pm on Sun. If you can't plan your teams schedule from that info, I don't think anyone can help!!!!!

Discussion: Took one off the chest pitching BP

We NEVER take batting practice with out a screen! We hand some close calls a few years ago and we got a screen that travels with us no matter what. Every team should have one, no questions asked.

Discussion: VEGAS a month ago vs Reno this weekend

I don't think Dave has to explain to anyone why the scores for LV have not been posted. He does a great job getting the results posted. Sometimes events come one on top of each other and time does not allow posting results. You complain that the schedules are not out soon enough, you complain that you don't know where you are going to be playing, you complain that the results are not posted, etc! WHAT DO YOU WANT?
LV had 10+ complexes that were being used, Reno has basically 3 complexes and most games being at Golden Eagle. Very easy to post results as they occur.
Maybe one of you would like to volunteer your time, travel, expenses to travel to each tournament and do NOTHING else but post results!
Until then, PLAY SOFTBALL!!!
