ONE & ONE SURVEY DATA

Thank you to all who participated. The SSUSA Rules Committee will be evaluating the data later this week during a conference call Rules Committee meeting.

The SSUSA Rules Committee met in telephone conference call session this morning, January 14, 2013, to discuss the data from the recently concluded "1-1 Count" poll. The results this time were virtually identical to the same poll from six years ago, in which the players favored the "0-0" count by a margin of 55% to 45%, with the only geographic area in favor of the "1-1" being the Great Lakes and Upper Midwest regions.

Although there is support for the "1-1" count, the level of that support remains essentially unchanged. After a thorough discussion, the meeting was adjourned without any rules change motions being made. Accordingly, the starting pitch count for the 2013 Season remains "0-0".
