Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Over running the base

This happen in league play, you’re allowed to overrun all bases and each base is a force out.
Runner on 1st, base hit, runner on 1st goes from 1st to 3rd, the batter tries for a double, there is an over throw, ball is now in left field …….
Runner at 3rd base sees the overthrow and doesn’t go back to retouch 3rd base he had overran.
(or was he trying to score from 1st?)
Umpire called him OUT for no retouch, even those ball was still in play!
Does the runner have to retouch since there was no play at his base which was 3rd and the throw went into the outfield?
The Umpire disagreed, stated all runners must retouch when over running the base, even if the ball is still in play.
Is he correct?

Discussion: 2018 LVSSA/SSUSA WORLD MASTERS CHAMPIONSHIPS schedule vent

I'm in agreement also and yes there are a lot of guys in this situation...Especially since SSUSA won't allow teams to play down just for the Worlds anymore...
(I know Dave) lol.....

I play 60's and had to turn down playing on a 55 team because the worlds are the same weekend...would love to kook-up with a 50's team for the worlds!

Maybe in 2019 they'll have different weekends for 40's, 50, 55, & 60's.

Discussion: Reno 60

Dave I appreciate you and your reply.....I know there's are other factors involved in scheduling the tournaments, but with only 4 teams in one division, We play the 8 & 9:30 games on Friday, can't we come back later that evening and start bracket play?

I know i'm just blowing wind and i know it's been suggested before,. Just makes no sense to me to have 50 guys stay in Reno for 3 whole days :(

At least have the championship game played by 11am on Sunday???

With only 4 teams in the 60 Major Plus in Reno, why cant this division be completed on Saturday? Makes no sense to have only 4 teams play the full 3 days!!!

Discussion: Power fading

Mike,
The shoes are good defense, they’ve never effected my hitting LOL….
Well, with the exception of visiting my favorite hitter Steve Imlay.
(I’ll talk with him in Reno)
I’ve been doing just about everything everyone has suggested…..........Thanks a bunch guys for the thoughts!!
I Hit 5 times a week, hit the weights ( I thought that was the issue) off the Tee , at the cages, during league and Been doing a lot of Videos, the problem is, I don’t have any videos before the injury ☹ I had surgery last Oct and Rehabbing from Shoulder rotator cuff surgery is painful...But having guys go from 1st to 3rd feels even worst! LOL

Discussion: Power fading

Does your batting power diminished with age? (i know LOL) or does your batting approach change because of injuries as we age?
I've a more injuries the last 2 seasons, then I care to remember and for some unknown reason I can't seem to hit the long ball anymore. :) I still work on my hitting, but just can't hit the ball out the park anymore......Anyone have any suggestions on getting my long ball stoke back?

Discussion: first baseman charging the plate during delivery of the pitch

Staff,
Why is distracting or trying to distract a batter considered unsportsmanlike, if you're playing defense?

I would think that would be good defense, just like a shift, or saying he likes the rights side or he goes middle! is there a different?

Discussion: partial tear of the supraspinatus tendon

I Just had a surgery in Oct after winning the Worlds. I was diagnosed with a torn labium but when Doctor got inside, she said my Rotator was holding on bye a thread, so she repaired that as well as my Labium. Doctors say it was a very extensive repair. Like Player, I had the rotator cuff cleaned out then reattached it with two screws.I also had the nerve block and Player is correct, when it wears off MAN MAN MAN what pain!!! thank goodness for Weed! LOL The rehab is going slowly, I'm 13 weeks out and still can't throw , swing is not an issue, but throwing will take some time to do again, I'm looking at 20 weeks before picking up a ball. I would stay away from the SHOTS as much as possible, they really make things worst and the injury wont heal on its on, unless you stop playing for about a year.
I went 2 years of playing before deciding on the surgery thinking it would heal on its own......NO IT WILL NOT, not at our age!

Discussion: Rotator Cuff Surgery or not?

Thanks Guys,
This encourages me to get the surgery.. :)
I've had an shoulder issue for about an year or so.

That's the best part of my game and the funny thing is, guys have been running on me and taking advantage of my injury and it's OHHHH so frustrating watching them run .

Anyone know an good Surgeon, in the Los Angeles Area? I hear a good Surgeon really makes a different! LOL

Discussion: Rating Question


Titand,
You're correct he's trying to be added to a 55 major TOC roster
I understand the higher rating...However would this still apply if he's the 12th man for the TOC roster?...

I thought the same thing Taits...But he's not allowed to play TOC as a 55 major because he played in those 2 50 major tourneys....I'm confused also..maybe Staff can assist?

Player plays the last 3 seasons with a 55 major team and worlds, then plays a qualifier and the worlds in the 50 major division in the same season.

What is the players over all rating? 55 Major or 50 Major?

Discussion: Courtesy runner replacement on a base.

here's one for you;

Base hit, batter gets a courtesy runner at 1st base, next batter comes up and get a hit, runners now at 1st and 2nd...

The courtesy runner at 2nd is now replaced with another courtesy runner, so that he can enter the game as a Sub to pinch hit for another player. (1st courtesy runner was not in the game)

I was always told that you can't have a courtesy runner for a courtesy runner! but the coach argued that he was making a Substitution therefore it was a legal switch...The Umpires agreed with the coach..... I bitched for 3 days, that this was not the case..

Please someone tell me I'm correct, before i pull this trigger! LOL

Discussion: Getting released from a team you don't want to play for any longer

Garyhitter, I hear you loud and clear, but if you're waiting on SSUSA to make a release happen, well??? You'll be waiting until Dec. when the rules committee meets and if the topic isn't brought up in writing, then next year the same dam thing will happen.

This happen to me also this year however after speaking with the manager's assistance. I was able to get my release, but it wasn't easy, I had to use some choice words, in order to obtain the release. It's really sad, that situations like these really take place especially at our ages!

If we are allowed 2 team moves within the division per season, then we should be allowed to leave WITHOUT a Manager's release, if we so choose too?
