rosters
Where on this website can we find the rosters for each team.

Thanks in advance.

Rosters are not a matter of public record on this website.

there seems to be a little circular logic going on here.

The reason i posted this question: when you visit the NCSSA website and try to use the "Roster" or "Distance Calculator" links, they state that this database (which heretofore has always been accessbile via NCSSA) has been turned over to SSUSA and they are awaiting a link from you...and now you say it is not a matter of public record.

Any workaround plans?

Your previous posting made no reference to NCSSA rosters. The logical presumption for a generic question posted on the SSUSA Message Board would be that you were asking about SSUSA rosters. Will check into the NCSSA angle and post accordingly when we have the answer from the Webmaster. Thanks!

Valid point 'staff".
i too was wondering why the change. NCSSa page now shows this:
Rosters have been turned over to SSUSA.

As soon as they give me a link to where they are posted, I will put the link here.

But why should or would they be turned over to you, SSUSA?

I wanted to check a few that played this weekend but they were gone and the SSUSa link is just a SSUSA page with nothing there. Or at least the last time I checked....

Does seem out of the norm for NCSSA & Not SSUSA.

Perhaps a better question is why can't rosters be public? What is the possible harm?

I can scan the internet and find MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL, NCAA, heck high school rosters for all sports. Why not senior softball?

You should be happy SSUSA does not release rosters..otherwise players on those rosters would start being bombarded by tele-marketers, spam e-mails and other mailers.

It would be a gold mine for advertisers. Very simple..get a name off the roster..go to free white pages, enter the name and a city (or area) and get a phone number and address.

Won't work for evry name but they would hit on 70-percent and I sure don't want to be in that 70-percent.

Don't usually agree with SSUSA on a number of things, but on this one I do.

I consider 'open' rosters as a 'checks and balances' to whom is listed. Many have slid by what is done only to be occasionally caught later.
Team can check them if interested in going to an event as well.
I agree with the tele thing but that is an easy fix.
Other reasons keep it form view but you should be able to figure it out.
I'd think the last minute changes just before a game AT the park are the ones you need to worry about.

Agree with you on that Tait and the adds before a big tournament due to "injuries"

I think too that some serious thought should be given to "add" deadlines being the same as 'entry' deadlines.
Especially for T's that have a possible birth position for the TOC and the TOC itself.
