Discussion: rules question

I didnt know the answer so i figured i would ask.


I was asked if there was a rule on batting one way hitting a foul ball then switching to the other batters box?
I didnt think there was a rule against it but figured i would ask.

Discussion: 1 and 1 count

1 and 1 should stay. We won it at winter worlds and played all 7 innings every single game. Only once in the top of the 7th inning 1x did an umpire state time has expired.

So 1 and 1 is a win in my book.

NOW PLEASE CHANGE THE SECOND PLACE PRIZE TO AT LEAST A BALL CAP WORN IN THIS GENERATION LOL Those caps are sorry. Go with Pacific Headwear, richardson, new era. The vendors can get you them at a great price.

Thanks Mike. Yea that really sucked for a winners bracket final game to not be able to swing away. It was simply a matter of who got lucky swinging blind.

Thanks for getting the 2018 schedule out, at least the big events. If you can answer this great if not I understand

I notice the spring championships for 40s in cathedral city is gone, is the spring world taking its place in st George/mesquite? If so how would we know which town the 40s are in? never been up that way and would like to add it to our team schedule.

For those that have been before, do you stay in Mesquite or stay in St George? which would be more enjoyable?

Discussion: Interference/Obstruction During a Run Down

I would also add the runner in both situations would initially be called out based on the actual play(being tagged) then during dead ball time out the umpire would advise " we have obstruction on the @#$% the runner is safe"

I get part of sticks scenario played out often and the runner goes back to first safely but wants to be awarded second. He/she must advance to the next bag to get awarded said bag.

Side note want to get out of a routine double play when there is one out......

Runner on first batter hits routine ball to ss have the runner on first hook his leg around first baseman and fall to assure umpire sees the fall then run to second. He will call obstruction 8 out of 10 times. Inning continues... lol

Discussion: Winter Worlds Phoenix

my guess is we might have to wait a little longer for TENTATIVE field assignments. We started at 189 teams total now its down to 184 so im sure adjustments need to be made to current plans.

Discussion: When did our generation become such cry babies

LMartin I find it laughable that you come on a board to complain about complainers.
Add to the post that I can guarantee "ALL you heard was" if that was the case your team would have been re classified back then. Ex. if you were a C team and all you did was play B. Just like many of us you most likely played up 2-3 out of 10-12 tournaments a year.
Lastly please tell us why you entered a AAA tourney. That's not like you, according to your post all you want to do is play 50 major plus.

And just like I see in all the young guy posts here come the excuses
its was listed as major
we dont play often
didnt have all our guys to play major plus

Discussion: 40's winter worlds in Phoenix.... whose going???

LM21 here is a different way to look at it. Any new teams starting out wont be in AAA. After looking at the current ratings, at best you have 9 AAA team eligible to play within driving distance. Out of those you may get 60%. So best case your looking at 5 teams in the AAA 40s mens.

Posting the teams entered so far is NEVER helpful to a director when the max is under 15 teams. Many teams wait until the last minute to sign up (my team signed up today). So if SSUSA posted yesterday 3 teams have signed up for AAA 40 mens then it would discourage others. In reality though 3 our of 5 isnt bad.

I get your frustration we have been there also. We played in the Texas state championships thinking many teams from east Texas would enter. It was a 4 team (3 from Tucson) event. We made the best of it and thats all we could do.

I know this doesnt solve your problem but maybe it helps process it. There just isnt enough AAA 40s teams. 11 of the 18 at worlds arent going to fly in for this so at best you will have 7 if all come.

Discussion: winter worlds

A few questions regarding winter worlds. Will the bumps if any from vegas be completed before winter worlds?

If you enter then get bumped after the cut off 10/24/17 can you withdraw and get your money back?

Will any bumps actually take effect come jan 2018 and skip thsi event?

Discussion: Manditory bump for 2nd place in Vegas??

Hey Bart
From what I have gathered they will try to complete list before winter worlds next month. At the very least advise those playing the intent, if any. They may need to come after winter worlds so you could see teams play major at winter then get bumped up.

In our division last year they bumped the top 4 teams.So odds are with more teams in major this year the top 4 will get a bump again. In aaa they only bumped the winner.

Hope all is good with daughter and friend
