hey Dix-- you should be upset with teams in your division for NOT going. The wounded Warrior game & all the other events sponsored by SSUSA made my trip worth while, despite not finishing well. guess not all can see the forest for the trees.

Discussion: TOC WOUNDED WARRIOR All-STAR GAME THRILLER

thanks for an absolutely fabulous time. must add-- in true dramatic style, that final homerun was off the scoreboard! Also, a fantastic catch by Warrior's left fielder. A.mazing men as well as athletes.

Discussion: The TOC

i consider this an elite event & am proud to be a part of it. It's more than just another tournament. i wonder why / how teams are shorthanded as each qualified team had to have had enough players to win a major tourney. I realize that players move during the off season, get hurt & even retire, but at the time that a team qualifies is when a commitment should be made. Our team earned a berth @ mid summer and immediately began making arrangements. We lost a player to mortality & will celebrate his life at the T.O.C. as a team. Curios as to circumstances that cause a team to become shorthanded?

Discussion: The TOC

i understand the points made here. our team has had the same basic players, with age being the mitigating factor, from 50's thru 55's & now 60's, & really enjoy playing @ T.O.C. when qualified. The experience ( with all that SSUSA offers) at this event has proved to be excellent! The dates are not as important to us as all of our guys look forward to it. If we qualify @ Winter Worlds it just makes planning easier! Do a lot of the teams out there change that much thru a season? here in New England there are not many players to choose from @ a given age/ level, so we play together for extended time periods. Wondering about other areas?

Discussion: Pitching

umpire was not looking. he was putting a ball away when the pitch was made. By the time he realised what was going on, the play was nearly over!

Discussion: Pitching

what would you call this? batter in box, pitch thrown- legally by definition, batter hits ball, everybody does what they should( runners, fielders), resulting in 3 run triple. As all this transpired, the ump starts hollering "no pitch." he sends all back to where they started. Then warns pitcher that he will be thrown out of the game if he does this again! THIS HAPPENED IN "IF GAME @ Vegas. Curt Snow, Hanningtons 60 AAA.

Discussion: Play at the plate

the play occured right at the commitment line. the runner crossed the line with the thirdbaseman chasing him to tag him out, at which time the runner fell back towards fielder with the ball, falling to the third base side of the line. Umpire discussion was that the runner would have been out ( for returning over the line) IF the fielder was not in the way, which caused the runner to fall to the ground.
it apperared that the runner did this intentionaly, as he immediately began to complain.

Discussion: Play at the plate

we had a similar type play. In a rundown (pickle) the runner stopped before the commitment line and attempted to return to third. resulting throw had him trapped & third baseman ran him to the line, where the runner crossed & then reversed direction, running into the player with the ball. this resulted in the run scoring because of interference by the third baseman, even though the runner caused the collision! This occurred right at the commitment line. Umpires judgement was that runner was attempting to reverse & would have been out if third baseman hadn't made contact. maybe we need to address this situation, as this play looked intentional.

Discussion: One base or two?

what award does batter/runner get if the throw ( from left field) is intended to get runner @ first, but goes out of play past first base man. Throw not in time but close, or might have gotten the out if caught?

Discussion: scorer question

how does the international tie breaker rule get scored in the book? Does it have a special designation? What if the first choice is injured, passing it on to the next batter, taking the out? Any ideas?

Discussion: Time to move TOC

webbie- I play for Baystate Bombers- u beat us for TOC win, @ which time we met! I have organised tourneys for years, including travel arrangements on occasion, and understand the amount of time money and effort just to get that done, let alone an undertaking of this magnitude!! Hope knees are better, and we meet again on the field.

Discussion: Time to move TOC

I can understand all the points for changing dates for TOC, but also see that a lot of time and money has already been invested. The logistics of a "free" tourney: field use and prep, not just for games, but also for other events, free dinner (and facility,) shirts ( not "T"s), awards for skills competition, Free rings for winners, and I'm sure there are more. Some will say it's not free @ paid entry but that only barely covers the expenses of a 5 gg tourney. ( umps, balls, field maintenance, etc) To me it seems that a lot of sponsorships are involved in the rest of the story and I'm sure that a long term commitment is necessary to achieve all this. I'm quite pleased to be @ 60 degrees, even with a little rain, as opposed to -10 and snow, AND playing ball. As such, when the opportunity presents itself- I will be there. Just my $.02 worth.

Discussion: SSUSA AND SPA MEETINGS

i like the home run derby idea but how about the top hr hitters in each age division, @ major tourneys, be invited to the TOC for a Home Run Derby! And, batters box outs should only be called when hitting the middle. Courtesy runners should come from the on field lineup. Age groups are o.k., as I see a big difference between the top 50+ age teams to the bottom of the 60+ group.and even more noticeable @ the 65's. The good 50- 55 players are stronger, faster and fatigue less and slower than a 60 year old. Yet a good 60 can play 55, but there are few 60+ yr olds playing 50's.

Discussion: Positioning of screen protecting pitcher

we have developed a system: screen must be in front of the pitching rubber ( pitcher must be in pitching box @ release) and any batted ball is a foul ball that hits the screen. If it is the third strike ( 1 to waste) it is out. Works for our league. Thrown ball that hits is live.

Discussion: Rules question. Happened at Huntsman

Wayne- the batter was not listed on the line up card. Not as a starter or sub. On field ruling was- illegal player- batter out, all runners return. After a very long and heated discussion, as the other team insisted it should be a forfeit!! The decision was that the batter could not continue in the game. I believe he should have been placed last in the order ( clerical mistake) and charged with batting out of order because he played defense. Second scenario was called a triple play as the throw to second beat the runner.
