Discussion: Running lane violation

What you should be sorry about is that 2 'grown' men turn most of the discussions on this board into name calling and a 'who's got the biggest dick contest' until SSUSA eventually has to shut down the post and the person who asked the original question never gets their answer. I am surprised that SSUSA gives either of you as much rope as they do, especially your 'crypronite' who seems to be able to say whatever he wants with no repercusions. The whole thing is both childish and annoying.

Thank you to SSUSA for getting the scores for the Winter Worlds on line. I also want to add that even the notion that SSUSA does not get up to date on technology is because they have chosen saving lives over the need for up to date scoring is so beyond ridiculous that is makes my head hurt. I am not an accountant, but I am going to wager to say that with what tournaments cost we could probably have AEDs and some modern technology. SSUSA, thank you for a great event in Phoenix, excellent field care, approachable TD, good umping etc. Thanks AZ Old School and Colorado Thunder for some great games. Your teams are total class acts.

Discussion: ANOTHER FINE JOB SSUSA

Yes we were at CCP also. Very well run tournament. I would also like to point out the grounds crew that prepped the fields after every game all 3 days, never saw a bad hop all weekend. Bathrooms were constantly being cleaned also.

Discussion: Jim Sherman Northwest Championships

This past weekend our team, Doerflinger 55 Major, played the event in Salem and Albany Oregon. All games started on time, were very well officiated, fields were in great shape, bathrooms were very clean and competition was excellent. And all the scores are already on line. Great job SSUSA. Going forward, to make this an even better event, tell teams in advance if they are going to spend the first 2 days in Albany so we can stay down there. That is a long commute especially with the Salem traffic and there are RV parks right by the Albany fields that we would have used if we had known earlier. Water in the dugouts would be great, especially for us older guys. One more thing, 1st place prizes should have the name of the event. We play that tourney partially because Jim Sherman was one of our own and we want to honor him. When this event was first named after him the prizes included his name. Please go back to that. No one needs to come on here and say "we dont play for shirts" or tell me how many shirts they have packed away in their garage. I dont care. If you are going to name an event after someone, then their name should be on the prizes. Thank you Senior Softball for a very well run event and following up with scores posted of all games, Colorado Scrap Iron thank you for making the long trip up here, you guys are a class act. Thank you Traschels for giving us some really hard fought games, you guys also are a class act. It was a lot of fun. Best of luck to all the rest of season. Jim Perry

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Ruling

At one time I found the whole Nancy Allen, Wayne, BJ thing kind of funny. Now I find it extremely annoying and immature. Same thing over and over, debating rules, name calling, questioning of knowledge,explosion and thread closed. Ridiculous. Lets go back to debating why tourneys don't have real time results. At least that made sense. Sometimes.

Discussion: Thank you to the Umpire

I also want to point out that after that ump made a terrible call in the open, our left fielder yelled in to the infield 'tell the ump' the ump interpreted that as 'kill the ump'(not a joke), the ump promptly threw him out of the game. We pleaded with him that he heard it wrong but he would have none of it. Aziz Old School players convinced the ump that they had clearly heard him say 'tell the ump'. He eventually reversed the ejection ant the game went on. You guys are a class act and thank you for doing that, we should have thanked you after the game but there was a lot going on.

Discussion: Jim Sherman Memorial in Salem

Played in the Jim Sherman this past weekend at Wallace Marine in Salem. Fields were prepped after every game, clean bathrooms and dugouts, very approachable SSUSA staff on hand, really good umpiring for the most part including 2 man crew for 'ship, excellent prize package given out and really good softball being played, with class, by teams like Wilson out of Idaho and Cornerstone out of Oregon. It was a pleasure competing against you guys. Have a great 'rest of season'. Jim Perry-Doerflinger Softball

Thanks Dave. One can always hope. And I could definitely use new shoes.

Discussion: National championship shoe awards

Question, my team won the 55M National Championship last year during the Worlds event. We received back packs. That's it. Were shoes also part of the prize package? I am not trying to turn this into a conversation about prizes, or lack of prizes. I don't need anyone telling me that they play for the love of the game and not prizes. All I want to know is if shoes were part of the package. Thank you.

Discussion: Washington 55 Major team needs 1 player

Doerflinger Softball 55 Major out of Washington State needs 1 player. We play all the big events (Sac,Vegas,Salem etc). We have some sponsorship and also contribute ourselves. Great group of guys, no drama, lots of fun. Would prefer an outfielder. If interested call Emory 360-701-5632, or Bret 206-387-1859.

Discussion: Lost my Senior 55 players card

SSUSA office, I have lost my players card that was good through this current season. Do I have to have a replacement card issued to me or is my picture ID good enough due to me already being registered and on my teams roster? Please advise. Thank you, Jim Perry

Discussion: sw tournament

I really find these answers frustrating. A guy asks a simple question and SSUSA has to come back with smart ass answers, threats to bump his team and then the idiotic rooster comparison. This happens all the time when customers ask SSUSA questions. This is the point of a message board, to get questions answered, to reach out to other players to get input, and God forbid, to get scores from other events. I am sure the usual SSUSA apologists will come on here and blow me up, that's fine. And you know who I am talking about, the ones that ask "why do you need to know scores from Worlds?". Just seems like simple questions/concerns deserve simple answers. I am not an anonymous poster. Jim Perry

Topic: Tournaments
Discussion: Results

Nope, it doesn't bother anyone. We are old and just happy to have a place to play and have no interest in any results. Especially big ones, like Worlds. Actually, scroll through the previous discussions and it is a huge topic among players, and a constant frustration. Someone will start the thread, numerous 'customers' will support the need for real time score tracking (or close to real time) and then someone will come on and say "why do you need to know scores?", or try to defend SSUSA for not putting out even close to timely results and the thread will eventually die off until the next person starts a whole new thread asking for the same thing. Oh, and at some point SSUSA will enter the fray explaining how busy they are putting together the next event and the scores will be coming. At that point the person who started the thread will explain that they are happy to have a place to play and understands how busy SSUSA is. Enjoy Gerdy. Also, this is not an anonymous post, I am Jim Perry, I play 55s out of Washington State and wear number 19. Happy Holidays to all.

Discussion: Any results yet for the 50 major?

But in the post above, that was contributed to Tim Millette on another website, he states he is 58. On the SSUSA Staff's most recent post it says 'team aged up to 60s, and all its members had their rating adjusted to 60 major plus'. Wouldn't he be 55 Major plus based on his stated age? I guess it doesn't matter, its not going to change anything. Just cant understand why this stuff seems to happen at Worlds, it seems like that event, more than any other, there should no doubt about the integrity of rosters and teams. I also wish SSUSA didn't do things like 5-3+1=3. That is so condescending to the players (customers) that spent good money, took time off work, worked their asses off all year to go to Vegas and have concerns about alleged violations and questions about how someone got moved down after 1 event. Why not just answer it and move on? Anyway, happy off season to all.

Discussion: POSTING ALL SCORES IN 2017

#19, I saw that, and it only took 2 and 3 weeks for the 2 National Championship tournaments to get scores and results. I was looking at the ISSA website on Monday and they had scores from games that were played the previous day. And they weren't a phone picture of a handwritten bracket. I love SSUSA and have full respect for the folks that run it, but the fact that we the players beg, literally beg, for a better way to see results and it seems like it falls on deaf ears. It does not help that everytime someone asks about this subject some random player posts 'why do you need to know the scores?' Answer, We need to know the scores because we want to know the scores. Fact, scores and results should be updated in almost real time. That cannot be debated. Every other association does it, we don't. If you are not frustrated by this, then wait until Worlds and you play your two games, have to drive to a chosen complex and wait to find out your seed and next game time as paper results are poured over and a bracket is put together. This should be automated and everyone knows it. On the flip side, there is no place I would rather be then on the field, or in the dugout, or taking BP with my teammates and squeezing out every last second of joy I get from playing this game. I appreciate that SSUSA has given me this extension of my career, and I will always be grateful for that. However, it is time to get with the times.
