fuzzy --- Mayhem 65s Major (Oklahoma) is still looking for a couple of outfielders

Mayhem 65+ Major could definitely benefit from being able to have one or two or three 64 year olds who won't be 65+ eligible until 2023. And.... the 60+ play different tournament days than 65+ so these players could play both age groups. My thought is that if 69s are allowed to play 70s early, let's also allow 64s to play 65s early. Perhaps expand it to all age divisions.

Another thought --- do we do something similar and allow a certain number of "play early" in 50, 55, 60, and 65 as well. Personally, I think the eligibility should remain as it has been. Just my thoughts.

It seems like allowing 69s to play 70s early reduces the player pool for 65+ especially since 65s and 70s play the same tournament dates. So.... it would increase the 70s player pool while decreasing the 65s player pool. The 65s pool is already stretched thin and the potential "play 70s a year earlier" would stretch it even thinner.

T2 -- Please list and state the rule which says this situation will result in a forfeit. I can't find it. Thanks.

Donna's explanation seems a logical application of the "spirit/intent" of penalizing using an "ineligible player" versus using an "illegal" player. In this case, player was on the roster and legal to play but ineligible to play because not listed on line up card. Just my (correcting previous typo) thoughts. fuzzy

Discussion: Another: You make the call

I do not know the SSUSA rule. However, in USSSA if the interference is judged to be UNintentional the batter/runner going to first base is the second out. If the interference is judged to be INTENTIONAL, the runner closest to home plate is the second out. There does not have to be a throw or attempted throw for interference to be called. (At least that's my understanding)

Discussion: Ruling on Run Down

As you stated, it's my understanding the runner is allowed to retreat other than toward home plate when running from home plate to first base. SSUSA is good about replying to these situational questions.

Discussion: Playing back to a lower class

I agree with Ozzy and have been saying the same thing for years. Each team should play the home run rule for THEIR OWN classification. If 5 runs isn't adequate, increase from 5 runs to more than 5 runs. Also, there should still be a coin toss to determine home/visitor. The "upper" team might prefer to be visitor. We prefer to start off batting. To prove our commitment to this, if we play an "upper" team, we are going to stipulate that the upper team not be penalized by having to play down to our home run limit and that they receive their normal allowance of home runs.

Discussion: Looking for a Senior League Rule

In our senior league, we allow two home runs per game. Additional "over-the-fence/untouched" home runs count as walks. The batter is awarded first base, but runners only advance if forced to do so. This lets hitters still go for home runs and also protects the pitchers and infielders from a safety standpoint. We've done this over ten years and it works well.

Discussion: Softballs for World Championships in Vegas

Thanks for the info everyone. It's definitely fun to hit the Trump Rock and would be fun to hit it at the qualifiers as well as Vegas. My suggestion for the future is that we hit the same ball (whatever ball that might be) at qualifiers as we're going to hit at the World Championships.

Discussion: Softballs for World Championships in Vegas

It seems like it would make sense to hit the Trump Rock at the qualifying tournaments throughout the year so teams could already be used to it at the World Championships. If the Rock costs more than the Stote, we'd understand the need to increase the tournament entry fees.

Discussion: Softballs for World Championships in Vegas

I guess I'm confused as to why we would use the Trump Stote at the SSUSA Qualifying Tournaments throughout the year and then use the Trump Rock at the LVSSA/SSUSA World Championships in Las Vegas. The Trump Rock is definitely a hotter ball than the Trump Stote. Why don't we use the Trump Rock at the qualifying tournaments if that's what we're going to use in Vegas world tournament?

Discussion: Softballs for World Championships in Vegas

I heard that the Trump Rock is not going to be used in the World Championships in Las Vegas this year and that we will be using the Trump ball we're using in qualifiers. Is that correct? I agree that the same balls should be used in the qualifying tournaments during the year as are going to be used in Vegas.

Discussion: Home run rule for handicapping

I like the concept of excess home runs being walks instead of outs. We've used that for over five years in league and it works well. Plus, protects pitcher and infielders.

Discussion: Home run rule for handicapping

Your thoughts? When AA plays AAA or AAA plays Major, etc. the options for the lower classified team to receive runs and/or choose to have an extra defensive player make sense. However, it seems to go overboard to have the higher classified team also have to play DOWN to the lower classification home run limit. This significantly limits the higher classified team's ability to overcome the runs/extra player equalizer. We are suggesting that each team should retain the home run limit that applies to their classification. For example, the AA team would retain their one home run limit and the AAA team would retain their three home run limit.
