Discussion: Northeast Team Ratings

You are on fire Chico, you nailed it again. If you look at the last 8 or 10 tournaments that we played in even with the Gubiotti players, were were lucky to hit three home runs a game. As part of the appeal process, I had given them three tournaments to use for the appeal process after our two teams combined and for those tournaments I really don't think the homerun numbers were even looked at. We played at the Major level once we added major players (Gubiotti's)to our team. Our roster is now back to our original AAA team roster that we had and I had also provided the two rosters to compare but because we played with the major players from Gubiotti's, we are all now considered Major. I feel pretty good as I get older in life, my softball skills just seem to get better so that I'm rated a major player. Truthfully there is no flaw with this system. As for the mask issue, our pitchers seems to want to throw the mask off his head prior to making a play and it is possibly causing players to make the base due to the one or two second time it takes for him to throw the mask off. If they are so worried about you as a pitcher, then they should just put a net up, then it covers your whole body.

Good insight Chico and you are 100% correct, until they get a system down that works across the Board, the rating system would be fair. The teams playing in Vegas would actually be somewhat at the same playing level. But as it is now, it does not work and what its doing is discouraging teams from participating in SSUSA tournaments. I know of at least three teams that will only play in ISSA tournaments becasue of the unfair rating system. Maybe a rating system should consist of a committee of dedicated SSUSA coaches that could assist and give their input to the rating process instead of just letting George decide on this. By the way we have really enjoyed competing against your team the last 5 years, I am from the FAT Nancy's Team. We had combined with Gubiotti's from Rochester 2 years ago and we were rated a Major team at that time and we had the power of players that could hit 6 homeruns a game. Now we are back to being just Fat Nancy's again with the same roster as we had 3 years ago and we are still rated a major team. The last year we have been lucky to hit 3 home runs a game. As for the last comment, I totally agree with all your saying in your last comment. Congrats on your big win down in Salem.

Our team did not play down there but I monitored several of our Northeast team that were there playing in 55AAA. You are correct only three teams were in the major bracket in Salem, two major rated SSUSA teams and one Major-Plus SSUSA team. The one Major rated team beat the Major-Plus team in the tournament.

Discussion: Northeast Team Ratings

The rating process in the Northeast has rated numerous teams to the Major level when they are not even close to being a Major level team. Whereas you have a team like High Street Bucs who win the SSUSA Loudon Tournament easily and win the ISSA Worlds in Salem and they still stay rated as a major level team. To win the Worlds in ISSA they beat a Major-Plus teamn to win that tournament. The teams that were re-rated to majors (many in the Northeast) all have played against High Street and they don't even compare. Our goal as any team in SSUSA is to go to the Worlds in Las Vegas but the teams that you have in Vegas rated major level are all close to the High Street caliber and are coming out of the Western part of the United States and play softball 12 months out of the year.. I really think SSUSA needs to re-look at their whole process of rating teams especially in the Eastern states and not just rate teams to a level that they are not capable of competing in. I'm hoping some of the North Eastern teams will also voice their opiniuons on this discussion.

Discussion: Syracuse New York Senior Women's softball team

Hello JTeleven.....I am working close with Brett Helmer and the future Premeir Softball complex at Santaro in the Town of Clay in Central New York and we are looking to start an over 40 year old Woman's softball league this year at the Santaro complex. We are looking to incorporate this league with our Monday night Men's over 50 Softball League. Ideally I would like to establish four woman's teams for this league, (around 48 women) If we get enough interest to start, we may even have a draft for the team establishment just to get this started. Any Central New York Women over 40 year old who are interested can call me at 315-877-3969 with any interest or reply to this discussion board.

Any over 40 year old women who are interested in joining a new league and possible in organizing a Syracuse Over 40 year old tournament team please contact Darryl at 315-877-3969. Syracuse does not have a women's travel tournament team whereas the men in Syracuse have (7) seven teams. Its time for the women of Central New York to step up and join in on the fun.

The future of Santaro will include a new concession stand with bathrooms, improved lighting for all three current fields, re-surfacing of the infields, adding a fourth (lighted) field (location yet to be determined) and re-design of parking lot. Brett is going to add what a premeir softball facility needs and Santaro will be placed in the mix for future Senior Softball tournaments for both Senior Men and Woman.
