65 AAA won by Sons of No Guts No Glory
70 Major Top Gun Swat wins their 3rd or 4th this year.
Smaller tourney, but great competition.

Woody, I keep reading what you guys are saying, "conclude he has 8 points."
I just don't see the MVP getting points in writing anywhere! I'm missing it somewhere..... I can conclude the 8 points, but where is the proof written in the nomination system? That's where I can't see to get an answer.
I know MVP in SSUSA isn't included, that's why I quoted 4 MVP's in SPA. That Assoc. MVP is a more legit award of the players contribution.
Off to Catalina, I'll read the answer later in the week when I return. Thanks again.

Thanks Woody and Don. I have missed something and shall go back and re-read. The way I've read it, a player in Major/Major+ with 4 All Tourney or All world in the SPA and SSUSA Masters Championships and 4 MVP's in SPA would only have 4 points. If MVP's are treated like all world and all Americans like Don stated, where can I read that in the Nomination System? I'll re-read, but sure don't recall it being addressed. Once again, thanks for your help.

Jah#4, not sure I understand your message. As per BW (who is a HOF'er) posting of the "Points System Nomination Path", I see no mention of MVP points.

"The MVP for the World tournaments do count for the HOF points." I'm questioning your statement As a person with a "seat" on the HOF Selection Committee, please answer me this; if a 1st year Major player at age 50 goes to the SPA Worlds in Dalton and the SSUSA Masters Championship in Las Vegas and is selected MVP for both events, how many points does he have?

Matt43, MVP getting ZERO points towards the HOF for a best overall performance in a World Championship win doesn't make any sense to me. Hard to figure why the sixth best on that same team gets a point, but the MVP none! Being the LVSSA/SSUSA Worlds the only event you can earn HOF points in SSUSA makes the quandary even more perplexing.
How about points being made available in other large and very competitive events like Rock n' Reno?

Discussion: Arrogance can hurt a pitcher

Bruce, IF there is going to be a screen, I agree with your placement. My gripe is IF the reason for a screen is the safety of the pitcher, how can you not require him to be behind the screen? Either use the screens as intended, protecting the pitcher, or get them off the field!
Associations hiding behind placing a screen on the field to dodge liability without mandatorily requiring use of the screen would be on the loosing end of any pitcher hit by batted ball injury.

Simple question then Omar, if you don't HAVE TO go behind the screen with each pitch, please explain the purpose for said screen!

Discussion: Arrogance can hurt a pitcher

galasater, that's not true in the Las Vegas Senior League. Screen mandatory, but not mandatory to stand behind it! Screen must be slid to the glove side far enough to permit pitching around the screen while maintaining contact with the pitching box; no pitching around from glove side of screen. No pitching over the screen. Screen is kinda used more as another fielder.
"IF" a league uses a screen for safety, the pitcher should be required by rule to be behind the dang thing after releasing the ball. Otherwise, put the screens back in the utility sheds...

Don, I just got a new 25oz Melee 2 in trade. I hit it Friday at BP, nice bat. When it's got some swings on it, I'll bring it to Mondays BP and you can try it.

The last tournament we played in at BLD in Palm Springs (actually Cathedral City) didn't charge the players an entry fee, they were paid for by the tournament director. Spectators were charged $3 per day. That seemed fair.

Discussion: why?

Ben, good try. Some other thoughts.
1. If schedule is posted earlier, teams with late games may choose to save $$$ by driving the 1st day of the tourney saving 1 motel night. In many locations this saves a bunch. Late starting team members may also get to work an extra day, saving precious vacation days. Also, I prefer to stay somewhat near the venue I play at, need some lead time to secure room. This is crucial in places like Phoenix where it seems like a 1/2 days drive in the horrendous traffic.
2. You are assuming we are at the tourney we are looking up results for!
Some of us watch competition nationally. Some up us track our friends and old teams after we age up. Other interest in teams we may be interested in playing for in the future.
3. No comment, don't understand photo posting........
4.Once again you assume we are attending. Need scores to monitor teams quality of play.
5. Gary asked simple question (legit question from a paying member in good standing), if others can post earlier, why can't SSUSA?
A tournament director has the same factors and the same work load in either Assoc. sanctioned tournament, but others seem to post much earlier. Why? In this age of electronics, no excuse for not posting results immediately after tournament completion. A photo of the bracket would work.
