Topic: Tournaments
Discussion: Phoenix Worlds

I agree, the fields at Grayhawk were maintained very well. The most important thing, in my opinion, is the batters boxes. Between games, most tournaments just scrape dust into 4 or 5 inch holes and make them look pretty - until the first batter scrapes the dust out of the holes so he doesn’t slide out of the box on his stride. Grayhawk’s crew would scrape out the dust, water the boxes, mix it with the dust, and tamp. By game time (just a matter of minutes), they were ideal. The boxes at the Cal Cup and the St. George fields at the Spring Worlds were great too. By the way, Dave was the TD at two of the parks I mentioned.

Discussion: At last, A Ball Solution

Gary, no one has to wait to get his or her own emails from him. They can read the ones you get from him on this message board when you post them. His messages to you were an attempt to get the ridiculous pissing match between the two of you off the board and out of our faces. You are the one that foisted it on us by pasting them on the board. (Personally, I think you did that because it scared you that he was able to get your email address, and you wanted to everyone to know in case he showed up on your doorstep foaming at the mouth.) As it is, his decision to take it off the board is just about the only thing that I have ever agreed with him about. You have no business commenting or lobbying about changes in our game, or calling people names because you don’t play. Why not just stay away from the board like you stay away from the fields. You’ve been kicked off other boards (and this one twice) and I think the only reason SSUSA lets you stay here now is that they like the fact that you harp at him, their perceived ball nemesis. Do everyone a favor and just go away.

Gary, you seem to be regaining your old "edge". You off the meds again?

Doker, I agree with softball4b. Moreover, I think SSUSA Staff would agree too if they thought about it. Hypothetically, you could have 59-year-old guys covering the larger outfields instead of 49-50 year old guys. Common sense just tells you that 50’s should be on the larger fields regardless of “whose turn it is”.

Discussion: LVSSA strikes again

Michigan native, believe me, LVSSA knew these teams were rated major weeks before the tournament. Why they allowed it I'll never know. Money talks.

Discussion: Looking for a team to play for in Las Vegas

Jan, I would think "Fraudian" is in itself a "Freudian" slip.

Coach55:

At the time that The Double Nickel team from last year entered the LVSSA they were only rated major by SSUSA, not the other organizations. In fact, they were allowed to enter an SSUSA AAA qualifier by the tournament director, who knew they weren't a legitimate major team. The ONLY major tournament they played last year was Phoenix. By the way, I've seen the two teams play this year, and they compete very well at major. In fact, one of the teams attended the Cal Cup, and I heard more than one person comment that they thought they were "a very good team".

Discussion: Cal State Championships

I’m bumping this back up to the top to see if I can stimulate the conscience of the guy who has my teammate’s camera. We had the 3:30 game on field #2 on Saturday, and somebody on our team put the camera in the wrong bag in our dugout (first base side). As it turns out, it was PROBABLY the bag of someone from the 2:00 game. SSUSA won’t give out the phone info for the manager of the team that had that dugout, but if he is reading it here, we ask that he contact Andy Smith, mgr. of the Double Nickel 55’s. This camera isn’t tiny like a lot of the digital ones on the market. It is a large one, and resembles an older style SLR and is not something you could miss in your bat bag. Therefore, we ask all the guys from that team to check their bags to see if they might mistakenly have something that doesn’t belong to them. Thanks for your help.

Discussion: TOC 2010

Weatherman, your situation is almost word for word describing our situation last year. We won three tournaments (none of which was a “ring” tournament), playing the same 2 teams in 7 of the games, and were moved up. It was a joke. We were never able to get anything out of Terry either, and still haven’t. Since then they have moved a lot of the other AAA teams up, so we are competitive in the division.

Discussion: Cal State Championships

Just wanted to say that the Cal Cup major fields were run very well. Nice facility and the grounds crew did a good job of keeping the fields moist. It was a very competitive tournament and we had a good time this weekend. Congrats to Chubb on their victory.

On another note, one of our guys lost his camera in the dugout on Saturday. Somebody put it in a bat bag, and as it turned out, it wasn’t anyone on our team’s bag. If somebody finds it in his bag, please contact Andy Smith, mgr. of the Double Nickels. Thanks.

Rocketman,

I hope you read this before trying to find Rancho Conejo Park. It is off the 101, not the 23, at Ventu Park Rd. Go thru 2 stoplights, and the park will be in your right where the road starts to bend to the left.

Discussion: Ratings-div-ages & long comment

I kind of like Curveball’s suggestion of combining 50+ and 55+. It’s been said that a lot of 55s are still playing in the 50s, so the age difference shouldn’t be that big a problem. And, you could do it for the Major division too, if that would help the turnout. But forget combining Major and M+. They are different animals.
