Discussion: Field assignments.

We been to Vegas for are 3rd year coming up and yet to play any of the quality fields out there. It now comes out we are on the same crappy fields we have been at the last two years. We had lights go out on us at Lorenzi and shadow rock the last two years and the fields were horrible. We won both those late Saturday night games. So maybe I should could quit complaining. It just seems the largest group you have the 50 AAA should get the best since we bring in the most money. Sign just don't understand...

Discussion: Pitcher does what?

First thing load bases up unless it's a real weak part of order. Than what we do is go to 5 man infield and try to turn two. You be surprised how well this works.

Discussion: Las Vegas Fields and Umpires

Played in Vegas for two years now and have had the lights go out on us twice , once at Cheyanne and this year at Shadow rock. We were also told we would play at a different complex each year and yet we played at shadow rock two years in a row. Also 50AAA winners bracket final this year was on field 2 which was an absolute horrible field. The teams that came from Lorenzi said there fields were real nice and when they saw the 2 fields at shadow rock they were shock they were playing there.

Discussion: Ball not supplied by Senior Softball

We just played in tournament in KC. And the team we were playing fouled off a ball and threw in a ball that was not one that was bought thru the tournament which was one of the requirements for the mid -west nationals. Our pitcher realized the ball was wrong after a player for the other team knock in 2 runs with a hit. We stopped the game and tourney director was called in and he said that every thing stands the way it was because the ball was same core and compression. We played game under protest.

My ? are what good does a protest do? Do you play game over?
Also what if I would have thrown in a Dudley Thunder Advanced with the same core and compression.
What are you guys thoughts?

Discussion: Cheyenne Park for Worlds

My team is coming to Vegas this weekend and are playing at Cheyenne. From reading these post it sounds like we need to up our life insurance. We enjoyed playing in Phoenix last year and we were told Vegas was going to be bigger and better. But after reading all these I feel like that will be impossible. We are the largest field in the tournament playing on the worst fields. Can't figured that one out.

Discussion: Miken U II vs Combat Ambush

I just broke the yellow senior bat from Combat. I loved that bat. I was hoping when I get to Vegas to try some of the new bats out. Will there be reps with test bats at Vegas that I can try? We are playing at Cheyenne park. 50 AAA.

Discussion: 50's AAA who is going to vegas in oct.

I know that we are coming. We are the Chicken Coop/ Iowa Demons. And I know that Oklahoma Team Mayhem is coming. And I am pretty sure K C Monarchs are coming. All are pretty good teams.
Why are you afraid that there is only going to be California teams there? Last year there was not a California team in the top 4.

Discussion: Moving on up

Hi, jerseyboy I remember playing you guys. You got a class act of guys on your team. I am just surprised at being moved up after playing in 4 tournaments and playing the same 4-5 teams in two of them that they moved us. I am not saying we can't win any games at that level. But we haven't finished what we started. I am sure you feel the same. We are going to appeal but I heard it falls on deaf ears. Btw I was the leadoff batter for the coop,that was one hell of a game with you guys.

Discussion: Foul out to catcher

In ASA the foul ball does not have to go above the batters head. If catcher has to make in effort and catches the ball the batter is out.

Discussion: Moving on up

My team plays in 50AAA and were moved up, even though we finished 3rd in Phoenix. The team I play for is called Chicken Coop. We were surprised because we only played in 4 tourneys all summer. Two of those tournament were in K.C. where we played the same 4 or 5 teams. We won those tournaments but by no means did we dominate them in fact out of 10 games played we lost 3 of them and the rest were close games.We also plyed in Minn. and finish 3rd in a 5 team tourney were we lost to a 55 major and a 60 major. We feel we have unfinished buisness in 50 AAA. But now won't have the chance.

Discussion: Rule change Interaction

I know in ASA rules once attaining 1st base a player can start from the orange bag. I didn't know in senior softball you couldn't. You gain no advantage starting from the orange bag other than not getting your head ripped off by a big leftie.
