Discussion: looking for a 50m to becoming a 50MP sponsor or part sponsor in So Cal

But he has the time during his "busy" hours to hit this board almost 50 times? I'm really sure that if Patricia (payback for Spanky) would send an email to SSUSA and explain his current "busy schedule with meetings", someone would call him back after office hours. He must be a real trip in those "meetings".

Sorry Dave, but enough is enough!

patrick jt......What is your problem? Simply pick up a phone and dial the number for SSUSA and clear what ever it is rolling around that head of yours and "TALK" to someone in the main office. You keep beating a drum on this site and like you were told, 44 times.....Duh.....Get a clue!

Keep pounding them with awesome questions Dbax. I've tried the same thing, but those people in the great white tower are like politicians. They can spread it thick if it benefits them and duck on issues they might have to account for and/or have no proper answer.

Discussion: would like an explanation

I agree with you Joel 1975 and it was "Banker & Mann" not "Banker & Man" and is a major reason why neither of us are involved with sponsorship this season.

Discussion: Pay to play a quality tournament

Amen to that......Would be nice especially at Canton but I heard that the complex was taken over by the township. Don't know that for a fact but heard the rumor just the same. Both gentlemen are deeply invested in USSSA & Slow-Pitch and it's a shame that Senior Ball has not developed into a much larger entity within the Metro Detroit region. Fond memories of many, many games at both Liberty & Canton.

Discussion: ISA / SSUSA Southeast Championships

Once again.....If the Senior Associations INCLUDING the SSUSA would use today's technology which they for some reason refuse to do, a lot of this Umpire mess and Umpires "doing their own thing" would be eliminated to a large extent.

This "new technology" is call "YouTube" where Positioning, Field Mechanics, etc. could be made to be part of an Umpire's overall training.

I have attempted to bring this idea to the attention of not only the California Powers To Be but to each Regional SSUSA UIC as well for the past 4-years TO NO AVAIL!

He might as well draw a big red target on his chest and say "hit me if you can"!

Discussion: Baden Fire softball 2SB550YS Junk in its core!

Like everything else in "all" Senior Associations, everything is done for the almighty $$$$$$$$$. When something doesn't go right, negative Umpire/Tournament setings or bad equipment/balls are brought to this venue, the "powers to be" simply ignore and wait for it to quietly disappear off the 1st page. Look at some of the problems brought up within the past few weeks with Umpires, Texas Tournament Officials, etc. and not once has a "power to be" come forth to at least address the situation/problem.

Discussion: getting 3 games vs our 5

Remember the good 'ol days when a club would win a tourney, were given most of the time individual trophies, a nice Sponsor trophy to take home and perhaps a t-shirt and in some large tourneys, a jacket or better. I remember playing in a big Class "A" tourney that a "Beer Ticket" provided by a local bar was given to a player by the Umpire as he touched Home Plate upon hitting a home run (and not with these "high-tech bats" of today). Local bar was packed all weekend.

As a follow-up to my point made earlier in this discussion, there hasn't been any Regional U.I.C. and/or the SSUSA Vice President/Umpires reply to this discussion.

What UIC Challenge? Dollars to donuts the TD was running the show including the Umpire staff!

Discussion: HOME PLATE UMPIRE POSITION

And once again, no formal training for the Umpires working in today's game unlike in the ol' days. Where was the tourney's UIC? O' I forgot. Don't need one because according to those in charge, these Umpires are the "best".

Discussion: Brickyard results

My best wishes for a speedy recovery also go out to all of the injured players. As I stated earlier in this tread:

Notice how those in charge have "quietly" stayed away from this discussion. Checks have cleared, everyone got paid, the tourney got in and a quiet hush is heard from those in charge "don't rock the boat".
