Not sure if there is anything that can be done but I figured out this past weekend that those with android os had problems with brackets being updated.
Those on our team who had iphones when they clicked on division link it opens up. Those with android it required you to download pdf and can't be refreshed.

We still got updated so this isn't a complaint.

Discussion: Registration Renewal

it really is easy
the standard.. you can renew online is there all year for those renewing from jan through worlds

If you want to renew for 2021 you will need to call from 8-12 weekdays (covid hours)

once the computer registrations start the year 2021 then you should be able to renew on line

please keep in mind in the last 2 months covid restricted staffing has had to find new fields, rewrite rules for covid and carry out 2020 worlds. Follow that up with a session 4 just ending and winter world/nationals not allowing any time for staff to take a proper shit.

just be patient

Discussion: C19 at Worlds.

How about we just accept what 2020 has given us this year and not bash people. My only fear is that those that have played/ playing are going to press the hand of ssusa and the 40s group are going to be guilty of more swift actions and less warnings simply because of those that failed before us. The 40s, who statistically should be in better health should have no problem complying.
So let's just play ball, give the better half your wallet and send them to Laughlin lol

Quick question, how do you know who is American and who is national for 40s major?
I'm sure I'm missing something

Discussion: Since when???

Mike
Here is my take.
With all respect this post/ seems to be outdated so comes across to me and me only like WTH/why now?

I play 40s and have been since i was allowed to. 8 years now. I for one am so glad SSUSA created the division. Based on the numbers over the last 5 years I think many other 40s players are too.
To address some thoughts, here are mine:
Are we seniors? no but its getting more and more challenging playing with the young kids.
Do we need sr bats? no, we could do just fine without them.
Do we use runners, all the time. simple I'm 6'4" 260 my 5'9" 175 will always be faster then me lol.

Why the division? We asked for it. More and more we asked for it. SSUSA made it happen. I would say at least on the west coast only 35% of 40s still play utrip and usa. The rest have just quit,coach or play benefits.
Why do we use sr bats? I think for uniformity. No separate set of rules, no well hes 50 playing 40 so he can use a sr bat. Added to what you said as a way to get used to the new program.
To me the rules work, the divisions works and everyone wins. SSUSA wins, bat companies win and 40s win.
Most of all, at least for me. The SSUSA 40s has revitalized the love I had for the game that was being lost with the younger generation of trash talk. It is the single most spoken reason I tell guys to start playing SENIOR ball. We play hard, tip the cap to the pitcher on middle shots, give props to a piss rod and share a beer after a great battle on the field. This game has brought too many good things into my life and I am beyond glad to be able to now play it as long as my body lets me.
Mike if you make it out to come watch, hit me up and we can share some stories!

Discussion: Must be said

Cause it's too often forums become complaint ridden sewers, I want to say thanks.
Thank you Dave and Tiffany for helping with all my questions and roster issues.

While on limited office hours and/or working from home Dave and Tiffany were able to help me square up several acting coach duties that needed to be fixed.

Mind you all being done while ALL hands on deck mode getting ready for worlds was in full effect. Yes you can say it's their jobs but I'm gonna give credit and appreciation when it's clearly due.

Thanks again Dave and Tiffany

Thank you ssusa. Fyi for those wondering you can stay in Kingman or bull head city or Laughlin(40 min drive to Kingman)

Ssusa are these the 275 fields at centennial park? If so the crew does an amazing job on maintaining them. They really take pride in their work all tournament long

Thanks all. I like to see things as glass half full. If I have to cancel my reservations then so be it. With prices the way they are better to reserve and cancel then last minute flights and rooms.

Discussion: Can't sleep

Thanks all. Is it a live ball appeal? Or dead ball appeal?
Is the umpire calling r3 safe when he crosses the scoring line? Or does he stay quiet and wait until appeal is made and bag is touched?

I was correct with letting play out but I also want my umps doing it the right way.

Discussion: Can't sleep

I can't sleep and figured I would ask you all for a ruling. 1 of my umpires had this happen and didn't know when to make the call. THIS IS NOT A WHAT IF this happened lol.
1 out man on 3rd. Fly ball to left field that was caught.
Runner on 3rd left way early and crossed the commitment line but stopped before scoring line because his team was yelling go back, during the yelling runner finished crossing scoring line. 3rd baseman had the ball standing on 3rd saying he never tagged.

As the ump you make the 2nd out call on the catch but what do you do next?
1. Say nothing and allow the play to finish?
2. Call runner out as he can't go back to tag since he already crossed commitment line?
3. A variation of something else?

Looking to see if I guided my umpire correctly.
