Discussion: 50AAA Bracket

Dave-you do a heck of a job-and to try to put a 62 team bracket together, along with all of the other large brackets-well, I challenge anyone out her to do better! I figured if we lost the first round we would have to win 13 straight to win it-making 16 games for senior players in one weekend-whew! Dave, I hope you have paramedics out there for the late games!

Discussion: 50AAA Bracket

I was checking the 50AAA bracket and tracing what might happen and cannot seem to find where the losers of games A59, A60, N59, and N60 go. The winners are there of those games, but it is a winners bracket game so the losers have to be somewhere. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Guess I am getting old!

When is the last time you saw a 62 team bracket. Wow-7 games to the championship-and that is through the winners bracket. And we are taking 12 guys-whew.

Discussion: toughest position

Capt. Kirk-I have to agree with you-player/manager has to be considered. Having done it, your mind is constantly on everything but your own performance. I really don't ever want to do it again.

Discussion: Pitcher does what?

Interesting thread. It just dawned on me that there may be another alternative. If the third baseman is not too deep, a quick throw to third, and then to home might work very well as a planned play. Especially if the catchers arm is suspect or you don't trust the double play combination up the middle.

Discussion: Pitcher does what?

Wayne, I do play some third-most third basemen know to just go ahead and touch the base and chase you to the commitment line and lob it to the catcher for the double play. Maybe a good play would be to hold the bag and see if the fielder might make the mistake of touching the bag before he touches the runner, thereby making the runner safe. Either way-you should be toast!

Discussion: Aurora LostCooler

The way the ball is flying here in aurora, you sure don't need to chill the balls. Fred Purvis hit one at a baseball field that the stewardesses could have served dinner on that flight!

Discussion: West Coast Aftershock -

teams have been trying to gain an edge ever since the game started.I remember teams microwaving softballs because we believed they would go a little bit farther back then.this is just another case of that and they got caught.I guess the next step is to give the Empire a thermometer and let him check the temperature of every ball that's thrown in.seriously, I believe that forFeiting out of a tournament is enough of a punishment for a first offense. That plus the stigma of it would embarrass me for sure.

Discussion: 7 run rule

While I can see the merit of your argument and I have alluded to the difference between 50 m+ and 60 m+ on the impact of the HR rule, can you imagine the confusion if you had a different home run rule for every age group in addition to every level? It's bad enough as it is.

Discussion: Western National Championships - winners

Mike-congratulations to you and GSC on winning again. I have the past 2 years figured out now as to why we couldn't win. You got rid of me and haven't lost a tournament yet. Lesson learned.

Discussion: Strangest play I have ever seen

It is a strange play , but I have actually seen it happen twice. I was playing baseball in the Iowa state championships in Watkins, and one of our guys hit a home run with the bases loaded and 2 outs. They appealed that he missed first, and after having to run to Cedar Rapids to find a rule book and going half the night, they ruled no runs. We got done about 3 in the morning with that game.

Discussion: Help for those with Vertigo

Davey-my wife has had bouts of vertigo, so I have given this to her for when it happens again. Interestingly, her chiropractor, the miracle worker, suggested the same program. Thanks!
The only vertigo I get is from looking up too fast to watch your rocket home runs, (or left fielder burns like you did to me in Reno the first time I saw you). :-)

Discussion: WHY SEVEN RUNS PER INNING?

Dennis-on this one I have to disagree with you. I know the scores aren't that much higher, but defenses are better. Having the 7 run per inning allowance in major plus does put more of a premium on defense. The fact that there are not as many 7 run innings as you might expect give you a more realistic score for the games, as not as many innings are stopped before there are 3 outs. And, keep in mind there is a large difference between 50 M+ and 60 M+. The 9 hrs and 7 runs is a bigger factor in 50 M+. I have advocated an extra 10 minutes playing time in bracket play for major plus. There really are not that many M+ teams and it does not add that much time.
Mike-c'mon-one guy does not make that much difference! LOL

Discussion: Perscott, Ax event going on now

GI-great to see you also. Congrats on winning. Olden Slow-I agree it went well, especially with the amount of rain we had. I reiterate that I liked the PBA style stepladder format for the single elimination. It made more than just those one or 2 games very important and we still got the 5 game minimum in.

No haboobs.tonight in prescott. Beautiful weather. Very unusual single elimination format. Five teams in the bracket. Round Robin Saturday with 4 games. 5 plays 4, winner plays 3, winner plays 2, and winner plays 1. Sure puts a premium on the round Robin games. I like it.
