Discussion: 2015 Rock'n Reno Tournament

Just wondering how many 50 Major Plus teams will be playing in Reno next month.

Nor Cal Warriors will be there.

Discussion: Wondering about your team name; especially the unusual ones.

Back in the 80's I was on a team called the "Mulewhippers"

Based out of a town known as the "Cowboy Capitol of the World"...we thought it was fitting.

Discussion: So the question was....how to get more teams to play Major Plus

I believe the HR rule (outs) last year helped to bring the rest of the pack into the mix.
Keeping this rule intact is a good start.

Good Major teams were able to compete with the Major+, given the HR Rules.

Another idea is to limit the Courtesy runners to one per inning.
These two ideas alone can help more teams compete with Athleticism and balanced rosters.

Of course the rich well sponsored teams will always be elite, it's that money that hurts the rest of the teams.

Had a guy that was going to come play with us last season, good player, good guy, then he got approached by a sponsored team who promised him they would pay for everything...how can you compete with that? These same teams are constantly approaching and actively recruiting other players, even during games. It makes it hard when your team is mostly self sponsored.

But to answer your question:

1. Keep the HR outs rule the same
2. 1 courtesy runner per inning only.

One courtesy runner per inning...that's it.

Interesting Alan...who is the "We"?

There is a big difference is 1,000 Twin Tower swings and let's say....1,000 LeeLee swings.

Discussion: New MTC 55 Jayvee team looking to add NorCal talent

Tim, All great guys on BOTH MTC squads...Yes I had the pleasure of playing with both the Varsity and JV guys this past weekend as you mentioned....I can't say enough about the great attitudes and talent of them all.

Both teams will be fun to play against in NCSSA next season...the more teams the better.

It's not Dodgers vs Giants...but it could be a good rivalry...Do I sense a little dissension in your comments Tim?

Sorry Leelee... :-)

Ultimately... He will be taking somebody's spot in the lineup. It will be interesting to see how that affects team chemistry on an already established roster.

Discussion: You Make The Call

Great explanation Dave...I guess I owe an apology to someone.
He did make the right call...and we went on to win the game anyway, but I thought for sure, it was considered a force play.

Discussion: You Make The Call

Situation: Bases Loaded and 1 out.

Play: Line drive hit to outfield, outfielder makes a diving catch, umpire calls it a catch and an out. Runner on third tags and goes home, runner on first was running on the play and never tags, he stops two feet before reaching 2nd base...ball gets thrown to second baseman who then tags the runner out going back to first base for an inning ending double play. The runner on third scored before the tag was made for the third out.

Question: Does the run count?

Discussion: toughest position

NCS13...catcher for sure...you forgot to mention having to keep the umpire entertained for 7 innings, most of these guys have are a strange lot indeed and being able to converse with them can be mentally draining.
Plus running down those bad bounces we get when the ball hits the corner of the mat...bending over to pick those up can throw your back out in a heartbeat.
Tough position indeed...

Let's put down the torches and pitchforks townspeople...

I'm sure that SSUSA will handle this properly and it may be that they already have.
It also may be that they don't have to make public their actions.

AJC...this weekend the HOF tournament is a NCSSA sanctioned event.
Balls will be provided and kept in the umpires care the whole time.
But I'm sure the barbs and comments will be flying around.
It will be interesting to say the least.

Not sure about that one So Cal Z...might have to prove altered equipment was used in all previous games. You would only be assuming they did at this point in time.

Discussion: West Coast Aftershock -

This is unacceptable.

What is it, that makes someone have to cheat to win softball games...seriously?

This team was also made up of primarily Law enforcement officers.

I know a few guys on this team and I can't believe they would have done or allowed anything like this.

I have to agree with Tim, I think the ones who are responsible for this need to step up and take responsibility for their actions.

Discussion: NorCal Warriors bumped to Major Plus

Interesting weekend at the Western Nationals in the Sacramento area.


Congratulations to Sommerville Softball for winning the 50's Major Plus division.
Great team and great guys.

I was proud of our Warrior team and I think we held our own out there and had some very good competitive games.

Looking forward to Las Vegas next month and the privilege of playing the top teams in Senior Softball.

Discussion: NorCal Warriors bumped to Major Plus


Tim...all great points...I brought most of these items up when discussing this with SSUSA yesterday, but they fell on deaf ears.

Reasoning behind the bump was that we won our games by a total of almost 7 runs per game.
However, in bracket play we won by 1, 2 and 5 runs respectively.

I'm not going to harp on this, we will accept the punishment...er bump and we will continue to go out and battle as best we can with the roster we have.
You will hear nobody from our team bitching and moaning about this.

We will do the dance as they say...

Oh and the kicker...we got the notice one day after they cashed our check for the Western Nationals...

Discussion: What was to consensus on DBO Homerun rule after Rock N Roll Reno?

I don't think it affected any of the games we played in Tim...at the Major Level.
I believe there was one game where the other team hit one too many for an out.
but they won the game anyway.

Our team didn't hit the magic number in any of our games...but then, we didn't play that well.

Didn't see too much middle hitting...no more than usual anyway.

Scores were about the same or slightly lower than usual.

Not sure how this rule affects Major Plus, but I believe the HR DBO rules is perfect for Major teams.
