Discussion: Cure for AAA after 3rd HR!

Beasley is correct about how to build a AAA team. But I also believe that each player should be rated. With this being said if you win a national every player should be rated to the next level of play for at least the next year and possibly cut out the breaking of teams. I believe that there was some rules in the upper divisions that say you can have so many major plus on a major team But I dont know for sure. I think that if you are rated you should play in that division and with teams playing tournaments the games and batting information could be caculated by the home office and be a factor in the rating of a player. This is not hard to do as the computer does all the work except for inputing the information. I guess the only question would be the critier for each player in each division of play.

Steve 27 why was it such a bad rule you didnt have pitchers getting lit up the middle as much even though there usually was not a home run limit. But it still gave the pitcher an edge and you needed it with the hot balls and just the metal bats not including the titanium that came out.

Jarwood I do not know when you started but I can remember when they played with the red and green dot balls and teams would still fix the metal bats so they could try and show off how far they could hit a homerun. To me that didnt take much talent when the balls were like baseballs any way.

Yes I played when there was unlimited arc and does not seem that long ago so I would really like to see how the other half that is playing would be able to handle it. We also had some wood bats for a while then we got the metal bats and it really was nice hitting the 52 and so on balls and playing on the 280-290 foot fences.

I would like to also point out that the 1-1 count is a good thing for the pitcher and would like to also see the mat larger as this would also help protect the pitcher as the ones that just miss would be a strike and alot of us just miss and with the wind blowing sometimes it is hard to control.
We all played ball in the time of unlimited arc and I would like to see it go to the 15ft level and with the extended box this will also help us.

Wow what an idea this sure would make teams really consider what division they play only thing is if both teams hit all 3 then both teams would have the extra fielder so it would be fair. The only question is would they go head hunting early so as not to be in that situation?

Discussion: Tournament in Panama City, October 19-21

I know that the Florida Half Century is a big deal in Fla but I would want to play in a National Tournament unless this is there National for Half Century. I respect every team as to where they want to play. I also know that this will be there first Winter National as far as I know in a few years other than the younger age. So I hope that we will see some good competion in Panama City.

Discussion: Tournament in Panama City, October 19-21

The Georgia/Alabama team is going and hope that some of the teams playing Penscola will use this tournament so they can get some playing time with the new players that some teams will be picking up and also to see what they will need for the coming year. This is also the winter nationals for this organization. We hope to see you all there and have some fun in Panama City as we have not played there for sometime.

Discussion: NSA TOURNAMENTS

I guess that out west they have more organizations to choose to play around here it is usually ussa and spa with the one tournament with the nsa. Since spa has the rules about giving runs to older teams that move down even though they are rated higher than the teams they are playing in the age bracket we are waiting to see if this is corrected but dont know if this has. The nsa tournament is ran very well and we hope that we will have more teams to play since the bat change but we will see.

I do not know about out west but in the south the directors have always seemed to get a good ball the only complaint we had was the bats but that has been corrected as they have finally gone to senior bats. The ball they are possibly using is the 52-275. I saw this ball used in Boaz nationals for hispanic teams and they were hitting it very well but I cant say what brand they will use but like I said before it has been a average ball. We have played this national for the last 11 years since we started and has always been ran very well. I hope this may help on your question.

Have you heard that nsa may let us use senior bats? I had heard that we need to send nsa an email as to why we feel we need this done and also they have said something about a ball that you have used out west I believe a 52-275
