Fabe, most likely won't see one ball in the near future. Neither SSUSA or LVSSA is about to change.

Discussion: The "ROCK SOFTBALL"

Not too sure what "nightmare" you are referring to in Vegas........I play league in Vegas year round and take BP twice a week year round all with the Rock, and have played in every World Masters here since the Rock was implemented and have not seen any safety issue based on a ball.

2 additional side comments:
Over 600 teams at the Vegas tournament for 2017 Masters, think they'll do things like change a ball to try and change that number? What would be the result of going to the Trump Stote for that tournament?
When balls were issued at the Winter Worlds, I personally heard nothing but positive comments and lots of smiles.

Discussion: Annual Meeting

If you are a serious senior player from a "hot bed" area of Senior Softball like Loachapoka, Notasulga, Wetumpka, or even Fishpond, it's an easy drive to the meeting to voice concerns for us who are 1000's of miles away with legitimate concerns about the game, but unable to attend because of travel expense. Would be interesting to know how many actual locals will be at this meeting voicing opinions of the masses. Care to expose the person selecting this location?

B94 Agree in the name of safety. Someone needs to address at he upcoming winter meetings. Has the location of that meeting been announced?

Leader in the field in the scoreboard category. They've got the results reporting figured out.
Field conditions were stellar also!

Discussion: Tentative Winter World Fields?

Winter Nationals posted July 21. No posting on tentative fields for the Phoenix Winter World tourney. Most "Book By" dates on your suggested hotels have long past, losing whatever would be discounts for us and whatever kickbacks to SSUSA. Any idea if field list will be posted in October. Many thanks.

Discussion: The Rock.

Dbax, our Vegas league has the same age spread, 50 to oldest @ 77. I don't recall any injuries attributed to the Rock. Like most leagues, bad hops, blinding sun, etc were more likely the culprit.

Discussion: Vegas Brackets

Do you really think anyone spends time for a 600+/- team tourney, doing past performance research to determine which team should be in which pod to make a completely balanced pod/bracket?
Dave, I think CallaVett may be volunteering for an assistants position on your bracket committee..

Soccer fields and open space North across the street. West of the playing fields is also available for BP. Has not been a problem in the past.

Thank you Dave, that helps. Wasn't totally aware of the "exemption" players as an option.
So often, we stay home because of injuries or prior player commitments, nice to know we have another avenue to exercise when we have the majority of players ready to go, but too short of bodies to make it happen.

Discussion: Rocky Mountain Championship Results

Dave, just make it a general question. Is it possible for a team pick up 2 or more players from the same age and same level for a TOC Qualifier tourney, then give them back to their original team? Won't need a crystal ball, just knowledge of the rules. I'm sure the rule covering this must be there, but I'm unable to find it. Just asking for help in locating such rule. I would like to be able to do same with my next years team.

Confused. How can a team that played in the championship game do so with the 3-4 batters from another good team not in tourney, then give those players back after the tournament? What is the rule that covers this situation?
