Discussion: Interference or not

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!

Discussion: West Coast Aftershock -

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!

Salt is the key..... I have been lucky as not to have cramped but a handful of times over the years... Salt cured it instantly each time... glass of water with a teaspoon to table spoon of salt cures it almost instantly!

Discussion: thinking of retireing from tourney ball

MD, it adds up... My team plays roughly 16 tourneys... most of them I have to grab a hotel for one day. and 3 of them a plane flight and most of them over 100 miles away. so if you throw in the bats I buy, usually about 3 to 4... it adds up like this...
rough cost
Bats $800
tape $60
uniform $100
Tourney fees $400
Air Fair.. $1000
Hotel fees $2000.00
Gas $1000.00
$5360.00 not including food and drink or misc like Motrin ;-).

It's the price I pay to do something I love to do.

Discussion: pitchers mask

Txtable, there are a few that have the same dialog every year, that everything is to hot! However the majority like the bat and ball combo... so, yes SSUSA is not going to keep beating a dead horse.. They have already have stated they are not changing the current ball and bat combo..

Discussion: Pitching masks revisited

Taits, you are wrong about the bats... in the highest division it's the 44 375 ball and ASA composite bats even in the lower divisions..... in 40 and over masters its metal bats which can be double wall... 44 375 ball.

Discussion: IS IT A CATCH

I don't know if he's a moron but I know there are rules from using your hat to catch it and clothing on purpose... however I agree with you that it is a catch.. If you attempt to catch the ball and trap it on your body and secure before hitting the ground it's a catch!

Umpire had it right! Anytime there is obstruction by fielder the runner is awarded next base!
