West Coast All-Stars 55 M+ will be there, fulfilling Mr. Hennessey's edict that we play/contribute our money to'3' of his SS-USA events before he will consider our appeal for reclassification.

Mike, sorry to hear about your injury. So now you have no choice but to listen to the doctor and drop a few!!! Hopefully you will be back in the game and we will see each other in Georgia.

Don 'OLR', we were looking forward to playing, but 3-guys were injured the prior weekend in Oxnard and couldn't play. We plan on playing the Senior Olympics in Riverside, May 2-3, and Reno at the end of May.

Congratulations to Master Collision on winning the LVSSA tournament.

Ken and John, are you guys 'Double Nicols and OTE' considering playing Oxnard on June 6 & 7? It's a lot closer to L.A. and the Valley than Menifee.

Discussion: Spa Ratings compared to SSUSA ratings

Bob,

I received a response from Rr. Henessy, dening our appeal and informing me that he would only re-consider our appeal and current roster, after we played in 3 SS-USA events. So I guesse we will have to waste our money and time playing '3' SS-USA tournaments if we want Mr. H. to consider the facts contained in our appeal versus the recommendations of the secret comittee. Isn't senior softball just GRAND!!!

Hope to see you guys.

Discussion: Spa Ratings compared to SSUSA ratings

Bob, I'm still waiting for a for a response/ruling to the appeal I sent to SS-USA a couple of weeks ago regarding our re-classification. I guess it takes time to poll the special comittee!!! Thers no way we should be denied, seeing that Master Collision who won a World Championship and defeated us when we met, can be allowed to play Majors and not us.

Is GSF playing in SPA's Palm Springs tournament the weeked of June 13/14?

Discussion: Spa Ratings compared to SSUSA ratings

Joe, I agree with Wes. When an association such as SS-USA uses an un-named 'secret' comittee to make arbitrary re-classifications w/o sharing the citeria and or reason for their decisions and or having a current team roster, something is wrong. Add to this that a number of teams who had successful seasons in 2008, and who expected to be moved up haven't been, makes you wonder who's on those secret comittees. Well at least SPA has a stated criteria for moving teams up/down and for making appeals w/o having to spend your limited dollars playing in tournaments in the wrong clasifications.

Hopefully the senior organizations will recognize this problem and work together and come up with an open, documented and less subjective and secret process for rating teams.

Discussion: 55 Super Major Re-Classifications

Sal, how can a team like Master Collision that one a World Tournament in 2008 be dropped to Major. But our team that didn't when one tournament or finish above 4th place in 2008 and looses 3 top players to boot, be bumped to Super Major. I am swaiting for someone to actually explain their rationale for this move......

Discussion: 55 Super Major Re-Classifications

This is phillip Cobbs from the West Coast All Stars, our team has been re-classified as a 55 Major Plus team, despite not finishing above 4th place in any tournament in 2008 and loosing 3 of our top hitters to other teams (super major). Something is NOT Right!!!!!!
We are attempting to work with SS-USA to correct this problem, we will let you how it goes.

Discussion: SSUSA Announces Major-Plus Task Force

Bob W. and Task Force, I would like to recommend that you consider allowing pitchers to pitch based on USSSA pitching rules (pumps/fakes/etc). This would allowed skilled pithchers in the upper divisions a few more pitching options when facing major level hitters.

Discussion: When were Teams Moved in Class?

Per SS-USA, new teams are rated based on the last rating/division that 6 or more of the players participated in. If you have 6 or more players rated as Major (played Major or the Team was bumped to Major) the new team is rated Major. The same rule applys to teams that are bumped and break-up (6 or more players are considered the same old team).
