From the length of the thread, quite a few people seem to care.

It mostly to do with so many other sports available for kids. When I was growing up, baseball was the only thing to play.

Sparky,
The young teams keep dropping in numbers. The SSUSA newsletter had some interesting statistics that Softball was the number one sport for those 55 and older.

Around here more and more girls fast pitch. Maybe that is the next big slow pitch market as they age.

Discussion: Does your team track player statistics?

A quick overview of clubteams.org.
Our beta version is free, no strings attached. Keep your roster info, schedule leagues and tournaments and send team messages. If you belong to other teams, add them for free. Keep track of everything in 1 place. If your grandkids play a team sport, you can have that in your dash panel and view as many teams as you follow or participate, no matter the team, (including dance and hockey which are the 2 fasted growing team sports today) and keep those memories year after year.
Our group decided that we wanted to start and perfect our program with add-ons in the senior softball market. Almost all of our management team are playing senior softball.
We have had some very good input on the top stats in our site and are making some changes. John Beasley really knows what he is doing and is leveling the playing field on the stats leaders. We will have updates of criteria on our site this week.
I am sure everyone knows that we are in this to make money. But, I want to make sure that everyone knows that we are NOT going to charge for the stat keeping, communications or scheduling as you see it. We soon will have features that you will be able to add at a small fee. We think we have some really fun features being added soon that people will pay for.
Thanks again,
Dave

Hi Scott, and thanks for our phone conversation. I look forward to talking again soon.
Currently statistics are input after the game, but our live scoring app is coming
We do believe that if a league or tournament offered our program to teams, that the communication portion would help. We are working with several local park districts and tournaments and have started that process.

Thanks for the input JT. The program will be in the beta testing mode for just a bit yet and I think you will find we value that input and will adjust. We do have full help screens and videos going up shortly.

I hope to see you in Tennessee.

Discussion: Missing 1st Base Before the Throw Arrives

I am interested in clarification on this one.

If a batter hits a ground ball to the infield and the runner beats the throw to first, but misses first base. Is the umpire to signal safe because he beat the throw even though he missed the base? Or does the umpire make no call?

If in fact that is an appeal and a runner scored from 3rd base before the appeal, does the run count?
I would be interested in Stick's interpretation.

This seems to leave too much gray area. What if a ground ball to second and the fielder tries to tag the runner but the runner stays in the baseline and to avoid the tag misses second base but goes by it. Same scenario, would a runner on third score if according to the scenario above...the out at second base has to be appealed?
Would it be considered an appeal, but still a force out?

Discussion: 44/375 -VS- 52/300

Do a search on the internet for it.

Here is 1 search result http://www.softballhitting.info/softballcorcompinfo.html

You are comparing apples to oranges by equating the percentages in the BPF and trying to convert them to distances of a batted ball.

The difference between 1.20 and 1.21 is not 1%.

The 1.20 and 1.21 are better defined as versions of a bat, with the higher rating the hotter bat, but it doesn't mean 1% hotter.

Wooden bats are at 1.15 according to some of the searches I did.

Take a look at this link that explains http://phys.csuchico.edu/baseball/POBActivities/POB/BPF.pdf

Dave, the 1 up rule would be a welcome change. Was it seriously considered?

Tim, I disagree with you on playing the lower division. Let teams work throughout the year to win back to back.

SSUSA is doing a good job with divisions as is. I think Tim is almost by himself thinking that teams should be broken up. But SSUSA always interested in feedback, just giving my 2 cents worth with my post.

Swing, I think we are agreeing with each other on moving more teams up. On the other, if it went to 3 divisions instead of 4, I would suggest reclassifying all, not just the major and major plus together.
