Discussion: USA Championship seeding game

Now that I have given my opinion on the seeding, I want to congratulate the teams in our division. The teams we played exhibited true sportsmenship. That is what makes Senior Softball so much fun.
Outside of the seeding format, I want to congratulate SSUSA for putting on this huge under taking of making the Vegas Worlds one of the best venues of Senior Softball anywhere. Thank you directors, and SSUSA staff!!

Discussion: USA Championship seeding game

We finished 4-0 in seeding and got a 4th seed. The teams playing for the East/West championship were 2-2 and 3-1.
They got the 1-2 seed.
If seeding is going to be done that way, why not just show up Tue. evening and start bracket play on Wed. and forfeit your seeding games since there is no reward anyway for playing in the seeding games. Why does the East/West game get a 1-2 bye? It has nothing to do with the teams playing big $$ to play in the Vegas Worlds? If you don't go to the Westerns/Easterns you are essentially penalized because there is no chance to play for a #1-#2 seed in Vegas the way the system is set up now.

Discussion: One needed for Rocky Mountain Championships

Need one player for Rocky Mt. Championships. Can be AAA. This would be for one tournament only. It will not affect your eligibility with your current team. Must be 65 in this current calendar year or older, and your state must touch Colorado. The dates of play are 15-17, August. The games will be played in Aurora, CO. We won Vegas in April, Southwest Nationals. We have been hit with injuries very hard. Please respond quickly, time is short.

Discussion: Thank-You Dave & Tommy

I would like to add that I had a concern for an umpire on his lack of professionalism as well. We were playing at BLD and I was having a snack in the concessions indoors. I saw Tommy walk by and asked him if he had a moment Not only did Tommy stop, he listened to what I had to say and didn't act like he was in a hurry. I know he is very busy, however, the interpersonal relationship skills he showed to me were in a manner that made me feel that he cared, and he does. He said he would investigate the matter, and I totally believed him. He has umpired many of our games in the past and is one of the best umpires that I believe SSUSA has. Thank you Tommy for your professionalism and unselfish character.

Hi Jerry, you are so true in the assessment of both teams. It is a pleasure mananging the Classics. I give a great deal of credit to four other ass't coaches who do an excellent job as well.
We are difinitley going to miss Ranison. He hadn't picked up a bat in a month or played ball. He came to this tournament just having eye surgery, still has one to go, plus he is having rotator cuff surgery today(4-28) He is definitely a warrior!! I will give him your well wishes from Git R Done. Give all the men on Git R Done my best, and you you as well Jerry.

We sure could use you Tom. Ranison is going to be operated on Monday. He is our shortstop. Ranison is a warrior, but he won't be back for at least six months. We miss you and would like to see you with us. Hopefully it will happen.

I would like to congratulate Git R Done men's 65 team. It was the typical Scrap Iron Git R Done battle in the Southwest Nationals. We had to play them twice to win the championship and we did. They did the same thing to us in 2013, almost a year to the day from this year's tournament. That is really not what I want to emphasize. I want to say what a pleasure to play Git R Done because everyone on their team is a gentleman. They exemplify what true sportsmanship is all about. Win or lose, they congratulate each of our players in a manner that you know is genuine. I hope that our Scrap Iron Classics team makes them feel the same way. It is a tribute to Jerry, their coach who sets the culture for their team. I know we will have more epic contests down the road, but it is always a pleasure playing your team, win or lose. Thank you Git R Done for setting the model for all Senior softball players.

Our shortstop will be undergoing shoulder rehab and may not be able to play after Vegas and the rest of 2014. Our team is a very good AA team and has won three tournaments since the founding of it four years ago. We have come within several outs of winning three more. We have several runnerups as well. We are members of the best organization in the world, Scrap Iron Softball Club. You can be rated AAA by SSUSA. If you have a great attitude, a total team player, have excellent skills as a shortstop, and can hit for average, please contact DuWayne at 303-437-5340. If you work out, and lik our team, (you will)then we can talk about the future. My e-mail is, d69zcam@comcast.net

We are a very good 65 AA team from Colorado. Our shortstop will be rehabing an injury and we are in need of a good hitting (age 65 in calendar year 2014)and good fielding shortstop. You can be AAA rated. Your state must touch Colorado for you to be elgibile. If you are 65-69, please e-mail me at d69zcam@comcast.net or call me at, 303-437-5340.

If you are a AAA team, you can only have 3 major players on your team.
If you are AA, you can only have 3 AAA players on your team. That's how the system works. They can also move you up based on your play. We are a AA rated team. Three teams we played in the Las Vegas World Masters, Sept.-Oct in our bracket were all moved up to AAA. One team won Vegas of the three. Winning the L-Vegas World Masters is an automatic move up to the next level from what you are playing. Also, I think you meant you finished 2nd in the Las Vegas World Masters, not the Tournament of Champions as indicated. I believe if you are a major rated team, you can only have 3 major + players on your team. If I am wrong about this information, someone correct me.
