Discussion: toughest position

LP.. talk to the Center fielder after a Major+ 50s Tourney... Try playing it and run after everyball in your area for 5 games on a weekend and see how you feel! Then tell me what you think is toughest!

For those of you who think everyone knew the balls were being chilled... your Wrong! I talked to one of my Buddies on that team and he had know Idea why they called that game...
He was embarrassed by the whole thing and I guarantee you that he would of walked off the field and went home if he knew his team was doing that!

HJ, get it through your head, the 52/300 is not something we want to hit... and the notion of 47/375 being dangerous in that heat is nonsense even when it was chilled! made it react more like it should of than making it a super ball!

Our manager on the North Cal Warriors had a team meeting early on, to talk about these kinds of things! From altered bats and the fact that he would be suspended for a year if one of us got caught using a altered bat! He made it very,very clear that nobody in our dugout was to throw out balls to the umpire unless it came out of the game ball bag and to check with him. We were told we could forfeit game for throwing out the wrong kind of ball! That being said, I think this whole thing should be a learning experience for all and hopefully everyone moves on!

Yes, I think they should get the Chair, come on SSUSA.. start the execution already! let's lynch them! ;-)!

Something already happened Southernson.. they forfeited the championship game that they were winning at the time they were caught and lost the championship! Not to mention the embarrassment factor to their entire team!

I happen to know a good portion of that Aftershock team, and I find it hard to believe that all knew those balls were being chilled.

I do believe who ever did this ought to step up to the plate for the rest of the team...

I have read the rules as posted by SSUSA that the team forfeits the game.. no where does it say to suspend someone for a year!

What if the person or persons who did this didn't know they were cheating? It may be a stretch but there are a lot of players that don't keep up with everything.

I would say no call for accidental contact... Baserunner at that point makes his own base line. Now if it was deemed intentional, I would call him out on interference! Still need to have that Beer!

Duke, I have two opinions on this! First, if a team or person is willing to throw in an illegal ball, you have to wonder what they have done to their bats also? Next opinion, I think it is silly that we have to supply our own balls... I think we pay a few dollars more and balls are supplied by the sanction.. I also think that in these 100 degree tourneys, they should supply a ball that will hold up and not the ones we were using in Lincoln at the Western this past weekend.. I think if they are worrying about returning the HR balls they should have a SB-12 back there and if they don't retrieve the balls they get that pillow.. problem solved.

Discussion: TEAM PENALIZED FOR GODD DEFENSE AND PITCHING

I don't like the bump up in the middle of the season deal unless you have a clear-cut team dominating the level.. that means blowing out teams left and right..
I will say that you should look at your bump up as an honor. If you have good pitching and good defense, you will hold your own at the next level.. embrace it! My team got bumped and played our first M+ tourney this weekend. We have a short list of major plus talent on our team, however we have great D and gel like a family on and off the field.. We went 4 and 3 and Played our game of good D and timely hitting. It can win at any level.. Good luck to you guys and I 1000 percent agree that bumps should never happen in the middle of the season unless you have a clear dominate team demolishing teams! IMO

Discussion: WHY SEVEN RUNS PER INNING?

I find it interesting that DD points out how Major plus doesn't score that much on one account and then says how we don't get in enough innings... So which is it? ;-)

Discussion: NorCal Warriors bumped to Major Plus

All Great points on this thread... First of all it's a great honor to join the 12 best or so in M+ SSUSA. I know we have been working towards this and now we here.

I think the best point in this thread is that it's wrong to move a team in the middle of the season, there should be some better criteria than what was used in our case, such as demolishing the other teams or adds of upper division players! Which we haven't done!

We played SK Knights won by more than 7 one seating game and beat them by 2 in the tourney round... Vandals we beat by 1 run in the tourney to go the championship game and 5 runs in the final... this is hardly killing anyone. Aftershock came with 4 starters missing from there team and gave 5 runs to everyone.

This Tourney in Hemet was so huge for 50 majors, there one not one post for two weeks about it after it was done... LOL

Discussion: Throwing

I agree with RJ on this one... you can't teach an average arm into being a cannon.. you can increase some arm strength, but you will never take an average arm and make it outstanding! Most guys that have cannons have good or great mechanics already, along with God given talent! Just like taking an average runner and making him a speedster... not going to happen... you can make an average runner faster but at the end of the day he's just a faster average runner!
