Discussion: crossing commit line

The runner stopped just over the commit line with the third baseman running full steam and tried to go back. So he was stradling the commit line and the third baseman couldn't stop in time and ran into the runner then threw home to the plate but you're right because of the contact he was awarded the plate? I don't think that was fair to the third baseman at all with the runner trying to go back to third.

This happened in the Worlds and in the East/West game of all games.

Discussion: crossing commit line

this happened to us in a tournament game and the third baseman was chasing the runner and he crossed the line and stopped with the third baseman running right into him. the umpire called interference on the third baseman and awarded the runner home late. How does that happen SSUSA?

First thing I can tell you is if you are registering as a new team you will be a AAA team and if you are all under 55 you will be a 50 AAA team.

Discussion: Automatic Move Ups

No Sir I was referring to my team and we got moved up to Major and I was actually looking for something from SSUSA to see if I could get that AA player back on his own teams roster instead of playing Major. We only picked him up for depth and he really didn't play that much and is a AA player? So can he go back to his AA team before playing any Major tournaments? That was my question?

Again not thinking this out. Team played AAA in the Worlds and finished second got moved up to Major. Can that player who was AA player go back to his AA team. sorry for the confusion.

Discussion: commit line between third and home

with the new 70' bases the commitment line is now 30' from home plate. Once you cross that commitment line you can't come back. However, we had a play this year where the runner was being chased by the third baseman and after the runner crossed over the line he tried to go back and was run into by the third baseman and was awarded the plate for interference on the third baseman? They said once he goes over the line you can't tag him out so if the third baseman had thrown home to the catcher and tagged the plate he would have been called out. Only problem was the third baseman was running so fast he had no idea the runner would stop and trun back and ran right into him then threw home but it was too late cause he had already committed the interference? Smart runner but I still think he should have been called out for causing the interference by going back somewhere he can't go? This was also posted earlier this year?

The only question I have at this time SSUSA is how many MJ players can a AAA roster have on it before it becomes a MJ team?

JR, my roster has been somewhat the same since 2011 minus a few players that are not 60 yet so not sure where you were going with that. The reason you should have been a Maj team is you had 6-8 major players on your roster. I know of six off the top of my head 3b,ss,p,c,lf and lc. Three of who played 55M for Roncones in Syracuse that weekend, a couple who play for EPA Financial (65M+ ?), and the others we didn't see till Sunday. However that is water under the bridge I agree with you on your situation and your venue problem. There has to be better communication on venues and rosters from Sacramento. JMO

Jr would those 55 subs you talked about be the 5 guys you brought in on Sunday to play in the finals at the Northeast Championships in Syracuse and beat Hanningtons in the finals of the winners bracket 19-7 and 15-14 in the final game?

The biggest problem I have with this is there are no 60M teams to play on the East Coast. 2 teams in Loudon, 2 teams in Syracuse and 1 in Raleigh? Good enough reason not to move? Or just go play ISSA where they have more teams?

Hector yes we did what you said. We won is 2011 and we were 1-24 in 5 tournaments in 2012. So we petitioned to move back to 55AAA last year and then moved to 60AAA this year.

Lee again I didn't know you got moved after one tourney and yes we are Hannington's. We actually played 10 games in LV and yes we lost both games by one run. Sunshine we got to play in the National game because we got beat by Hamels in Raleigh 11-0 in the final and Hamels didn't go to LV so SSUSA extended the option to us because we went to LV. All I was trying to get at in this post was the criteria for move up is supposed to be differential of 5.0 or mre and we were at 5.4. So I was saying there shoud be more data to warrant the move up. In the past teams have been moved because they use all their homeruns in every game and even hit some for outs which we weren't even close to that. So, basically for the sake of 1/2 a run per game we are getting moved up when we clearly had a great weekend hitting? Sunshine I was looking at Pope Transport and their scores and you are correct we are going from an age and skill bracket 60AAA to MJ where there are no teams on the East. There were 2 in Loudon 1 in Raleigh and 2 in Syracuse for the three top tourneys in the East. In those tourneys the 60 M teams played in the 55 AAA bracket which we left because we had aged up?

LEE we didn't win 27 games that was the total games we played this year. We played in 5 tournaments and won two of them so we lost our share, The 5.4 is a sample of the games we won doesn't count the games we lost. We actually lost the Eastern Nationals 11-0 to a pretty good team. We won a local qualifier and the Atlantic Championships in Loudon, VA. Can't say we had a bad year but it sounds like we are being moved because of one tournament. You know you can get hot in one weekend and we did? Hot goalies win Stanley Cups and we just got hot at the right time and now we are going to pay for it?
