Discussion: Spreadsheet development for seating at tournaments and brackets etc.

I am suggesting that SSUSA spent some $ this winter to hire a developer that can create a seating and bracket spreadsheet for the tournaments. It is not difficult and can be made generic for different numbers of teams. In Vegas the last two years seating and run differential decisions were laborious. A tool would formulate all of these tasks and make it very fast-simple and consistent. I would guess a very thorough and flexible spreadsheet tool would cost about $10K and be good for years. Lets take the guess and struggle from this
unwelcome tasks for the tournament directors and players.

Finally - a search for bat nirvana continues. Hope these 'new' ones will have a warranty if they are so durable?

Discussion: SSUSA needs to Qualify warranted Bats only

The Miken Ultras take some time to break in and then they Break.
This is a Common experience and not unusual at all.
One of mine barely lasted a year the other lasted one tournament plus practice.
I can not afford 2-3 bats a year as I am sure many can't.
Also they are too hot as we had two players Very seriously injured by them in the last tournament and several other less serious injuries in the first tournament.
I believe that fielding is an art and a big part of the game but these HOT bats take too much of
that skill away. The outfield just plays the fence and that takes away some fielding also. I see more true competition at the wood bat tournament. We need safer bats and less 'hot' bats - I am a home run hitter but with lesser bats many would still hit some and certainly over the fielders heads , it is all relative. Thus I vote a petition for the SSUSA to only sanction warranted bats at a lower BPF level
and get back to real baseball like the Rockies did with the humidor.FREAK style should be the maximum as they are plenty hot and 300 ft home runs are very doable anyway with them.
I hear these comments from many players but do not know if SSUSA has had a serious discussion about it?
