Add 3 Major Plus players to AAA team in Az.
TerryH:
A Team class AAA asked me to ask you if they can add 3 Major Plus players to there AAA team roster even though it is already frozen for the Az. worlds. Seems there team is short handed and they are willing to move up to Major after they win the rings at AAA no problem.
Sounds like your Ca. cup mentality is spreading out there a bit.
Thanks in advance for your very legal always correct and always professional answer.

mk39 - That's pretty brazen of you to make something up like that about some bogus AAA team, especially since it's your players that started this mess in the first place. Reading the TH reply made me believe the change would be right now for this year's az tournament. You seem to cause more trouble than the usual sr. player, but maybe that's why those players wanted to get away from your team in the first place. Maybe it's time for you to stop being a jerk, if you can.

I did not post the above message. Who ever did post that message needs to claim it.

Thanks for clearing that up for me.

I doubt whoever really wrote that will be man enough to admit it now anyway.

Probably a SSUSA staff guy with access or something??

Who knows and who cares about a coward like that.

Thanks again akel10

MK, lets start with me. I did not write it but wish I had.
You do just cause a lot of trouble and whine about a loss.

SSUSA is the worst organization about letting players be added to rosters for the world. I have seen it happen every year, Good players from good teams are added to good teams and allowed to play in the SSUSA World Tournament. SSUSA is all about money. There awards suck just like the balls they use. But most players don't care because they can use their Ultra II. They will have 20 to 30 teams in each age group but you will be lucky to get a t-shirt if you win.l

Sure, lets start with you.
I read your other posts and see that you have taken shots at me before saying that i cant spell, etc.
You are from nor cal and seem to have a problem with me for a reason right now that only you know.

I am going to have to guess here a bit.
Maybe i did not pick you up for my team??
Maybe i cut you off my team??
Maybe i beat you in softball your whole life??
I will understand better why you want a piece of me if you simply nut up right now and tell me your name and what team you play for so i can better understand you.
Hope i did not mispell any words cuz i so ignant.

i agree with all you said.
The bat makes no difference to me when i pick the worlds every year.
I go tp the worlds that willl play it fair and have the same rules for all.
Next year
NSA
USSSA
ASA
for sure.
They will all go away from the advice of hennesey, ridge and rb thomas and start running there own senior softball programs in 2006 the way softball is supposed to be played.
No 5 run innings for sure.
Thanks

Gary, I do not know where the rule came from or why it was started. But the teams (like mine) that are not offensive powerhouses sure like the rule. That is the only way we can compete with the paid for teams.

That is exactly the reason why we should eliminate the 5 run rule; the restriction on HRs; the time limits (at least in Double elim rounds). Let the good teams move up to where they belong - based on their records and allow the teams that do not win to move down - based on their records. For example Chicago Classics are a very good team for Majors and won several at that level - they (in my estimation) are a good candidate to move up because they deserve it. The same goes for the Angle Inn. If all categories allow unlimited HRs, Runs scored; and time, then the very good teams would naturally separate from the teams that do not have the horsepower to keep up and they will sink in the standings to a level of fair play. I do not mean to pick on these two quality teams, it is more of giving them credit for beating my team so many times. I still like playing them because they are good. Limitation rules only prevent separation between different quality teams. This is not what the game is supposed to do. AS far as roster additions, it is a tough call becasue for teams that do not have their way paid and some guys can't make the dates, the rest of the team suffers. But if a team picks up players from a higher category then then they should play in a higher category in that tournament. If need be, the tournment director needs to make an on the spot change. It's not that hard to do.

"but we never would have expected run limits as a contrived way to keep the game close."
Gary, we did not expect it either. But after the years of playing as you did against the big teams I for one am glad that someone instituted this rule. In some cases it is 7 runs per inning with a catch up rule. But still limits. It has been that way since I came into Seniors. Like all other rules we just play by them. But I do like this one.

Robo2, the ratings is the single biggest problem in softball. All ages. If it could ever be done fairly then that would be great. But it will not. When the team I am on is bracketed to play major + we are very happy with the 5 run rule
