Discussion: TX 65 Travel Team Looking for Players
What city are you in? How often do you intend to play? Do you intend to make all the THCC tournaments in Texas and will you go to the big ones in Reno, and Las Vegas? What positions do you need?

No the tournament was not perfect but not everything can always be done to satisfy all of us. I did not care for the 2&2 count and no one said the 2&2 count was ideal but we did have a vote on it and few people at the managers meeting voiced opposition. One thing that would help a lot is to have enough teams in age and skill level brackets to prevent the co-mingeling and diferential awarding of runs. We can't blame the organization for that or the actions of mother nature. It was not perfect but it was a lot better than the other options available to us seniors. I think these guys will listen to the comments and do the best they can given the cards they are delt.

The endcap you mentioned on the Combat is stock. The nuts they use have a relatively consistant weight. This makes it simple. X number of nuts go into X weight bats. It works well.

Discussion: Ammended rules now posted
Guys, The one thing we all share is a love for the game. The bigest problem with this game is that we as people tend to try to change it too much. Why follow the lead of organizations like ASA. If they are so good why do you think these other organizations exist? Why does a ASA western national mens B draw only 12 teams and most are from the town holding the tournament??? I bet Ridge is at church thanking the one above for the home run rule changes SSUSA has made. Amen

Discussion: Personal Perspectives on New Home Run Rule
I am truly saddened to see the direction SSUSA has chosen to take on rule changes pertaining to homeruns. When you mandate homeruns in excess of the inappropriate lower limits you have established, you increase the level of injury to all infielders, and this is especially true for the pitcher. No single rule change could be more detrimental to the Major and Major + brackets. Your excess home run out rule has just increased the level of danger to all players and diminished the sport in general. Actions of this type are primary reasons why so many players and teams had turned away from SPA. Your actions will probably send them back. More and more players and teams will be leaving your organization to play in non sanctioned tournaments in which they can still go for the homerun. Show me a player who claims to not wish to be able to hit a home run and I will show you a liar or a person who should find something less challenging to do with his time for they are not actually ball players. Any player who approves this type of restriction should work to increase his or her ability rather than work to drag this fine sport down to there level.
