What 60 Major Plus teams will be at Western Nationals? Timberworks have said will be there. Want to know the number of teams before committing.

Discussion: Major Plus

Tim Didn't say my stuff was new. Look at the very first thread. How many pitchers get seriously hurt in the AA or AAA with the bats and limited HR's? Very few. If you want to help the pitcher, make the mat six inches deeper and 2 inches wider on each side. Now a pitcher has some help in keeping the ball out of the middle. Most teams and players do not hit the middle if they have any integrity for the game and the pitcher.

Discussion: Major Plus

Since I started this thread it has been very informative. However, all the discussion has not even come close to solving the Major+ issue. Our team has not, nor will not, ever shy away from playing anyone and be very competitive. The reason for the post was very selfish in that I want to play with the guys I've played with for the last 10 years, play the game as it was intended, relying on hitting, defense, timely HR's and not having to play 4 or 5 inning games while the other team hits 20 HR's. Again my suggests for NEXT year.

1. Combine Major and Major+ teams with the level 1 and level 2 configuration for leveling.

2. Five runs per inning

3. 7 HRs per game

4. Dead Ball Outs (DBO) on HRs over 7.

You will see an expansion of the Major Division and will be a level playing field for all teams involved. Any team can then win any tournament.

Discussion: Major Plus

Speaking as a member of a team that just got moved to Major Plus, the rules stink for that classification. Our team loves to play the game the way it was intended; hits, running the bases, fielding, and timely HRs. With the way the Major Plus is set up, you can rest assured that we will be watching fly balls sail out of the park, play four or five inning games, have no chance to play defense, and get beat because the Major Plus teams are all jackers and not complete players. You want to change and make this game a level playing field?
1. Eliminate the Major Plus classification
2. Put Major Plus with Major but put level 1 and level 2. When Level 1 plays level 2, level 2 gets 5 runs.
3. 5 runs per inning
4. 7 HRs per game
5. The biggest leveler of all. After 7 HRs, DEAD BALL OUTS.

Brings defense, hitting, baserunning back to the game and creates large team numbers for the Major division instead of the 2 or 3 for the Major Plus.

Come on SSUSA, be the leader in the change to save the game for EVERY team.

Discussion: LV World Tournament Discussion

I believe the following should happen at EVERY SSUSA tournament:

1. Three seeding games and a true double elimination tournament. You know your times the first day and would give time to set the bracket. The bracket could be put on the web site and everyone would have access as to time of games and locations the night before the bracket games.
2. Rock or Fire used at every tournament.
3. 1 and 1 count (what everyone calls the 3-2) to start the at bat. Can get a true 7 inning game and keep the tournaments on time even with extra innings.
4. Player "must" play in one of the seeding games unless prior approval for "legitimate" reasons from tournament directors.

Discussion: Results

With todays technology, is it not possible to take a laptop to the tournament site, hook to the internet and update scores and results as they happen at the tournament site. Scores and updated results could be posted every couple of hours during the tournament. Would really make a much better system for all concerned to know immediately how the tournament was progressing. Come on SSUSA get with the technology age and keep everyone informed. Would also make it much easier on each of you to do it while sitting and watching the games.

Had about 200 swings on mine when the end plug came out and been fighting that. It basically is useless right now because can't keep plug in. Was end load 27.

Discussion: Third Baseman

We are looking for a third baseman for 2012. We are a very competitive 55 Major team in Northern Cal that has been established for over 10 years. We usually play 8 to 10 Nor Cal tournaments and 3 to 4 larger including Rock N Reno, Cal Cup, Western World and Worlds. Don't care about power but need to have the glove. If you are looking to step up to major this is the team. No sponsor, split costs of intry fees.

Discussion: Seeding Criteria at Senior World Tournament

Wouldn't it be so much simpler to do a three game seeding format and then a true double elimination tournament. The seeding criteria would be the same as now but it would be much better to know that during the bracket you lose two and you are done. In three day tournaments you could play three on the first day if there were several teams or twon on the first and one on the second if there were not a large number of teams. Just makes more sense than getting beat the first two games of the bracket and then bouncing back to play other teams that lost two. Would make much more sense.

If the deal falls through? I guess I thought we already had a deal. Oh well you live and learn with some people.
