If you can find an Ultra II Legacy, you'll get 1000's of swings out of it and it swings just like an Ultra II black one.

Come out to Lorenzi Park on Tues or Thurs morning by 10 AM when the league plays. There are reps from most travel teams there that can point you in the right direction.

Discussion: Do you use senior bats in non tournament games/leagues?

Las Vegas uses SSUSA rules on bats. There is a pitchers screen though.
"The Rock" is the official league ball.

Discussion: The TOC

Bob, that's another glitch in the dates of the tourneys. There are several other negatives also, enough to warrant getting it fixed. I think they are leaving a lot of money on the table leaving it like it is. There's quite a few more teams would attend given a calendar change I'm thinking......

Discussion: The TOC

Pitcher and 1974, you are both correct!!! My reply made as much sense and was as logical as the current scheduling of these two tournaments in the 1st place.
My answer was "tongue in cheek", intended to poke fun at an annual problem in our softball community. It falls on a "selective hearing" group.

We faced the situation several times. Dropped players, added new guys, played in a qualifier plus 2-3 local tourneys; then, had to try to re-assemble last years team (who have gone on to join other teams) and tell the new guys they weren't part of this group! Not enough players now, so, try to find players from an older division or ones from a lower rating to fill in. This ends up not the same team that qualified, and to me, skirts the intention of having a Tournament of Champions in the 1st place

The way TOC is scheduled with the Winter events just isn't a smooth venue for the teams qualifying. This subject has come up several years now. There doesn't seem to be any effort to correct it, for whatever reason.

Put the TOC at the end of same calendar year you qualify in. Move the Winter events to the winter, same date as the current TOC if need be for contractual obligations. Sure would save a bunch of hassle.

Discussion: The TOC

It's so that SSUSA can automatically move up a newly crowned champion to the next higher division, then be able to lower them back to where they were before winning the World's, and then after the TOC 60-70 days later, be able to move them back to the elevated status earned with the World's.

Also, SSUSA does this as a test to see how many teams can get their last years team back together for one last tourney. Having at the end of the season would be too easy and not complicated enough for managers.

Go to Lorenzi Park to the LVSSA league games. Mike Hula is looking for 60 AAA players. The guys there should be able to hook you up. The majority of Vegas teams have reps playing there @ 10 AM on Tues and Thurs.

What age? What position? What level? Answers to these will help you find a team.

Discussion: Automatic Move Ups

LOL I had no worries Andy. Just curious why a re-rating Dec. 5, 2014 after a team won the Worlds. Thought there may be a loophole. Questions answered.

Discussion: Automatic Move Ups

If the Worlds Championships in Vagas are an automatic move up for the champion, I'm curious why Vacar (70+ Major Champ) hasn't moved up in the 70's to Major+.

Discussion: Rules meeting?

Just curious, how was attendance at the Public Session yesterday? Concerned players traveling in from all parts of our country I'll bet..............not.
Who's brilliant idea was it to hold a national meeting at that geographic location? Tupelo??? Not an easy commute.

Discussion: Tournament Balls

SSUSA uses the Rock at the SW's and the World Championships both played in Vegas. All other tournaments the Stote is the official game ball. (Texas and Florida Half Century Balls are also legal for tournaments other than the Vegas tournaments. Described by Sacramento as a Stote with a different cover)

Max, player A and player B both get to play 65's on the exact same day, that is the day after the Worlds in Las Vegas when they are both 64! No birthday advantage other than player B is approx. 6 months younger.

imp, would you rather have had a postponement at game time and done the trip next weekend at additional hotel, meal, and travel expense? Or, perhaps hold it over till Monday and Tues when better weather is expected! NHRA is doing just that in Atlanta (Commerce) today with a much larger event. You have to deal with the hand your dealt. Mother nature doesn't always go our way.
I have found the directors do the best they can with the circumstances dealt to them. They are never going to please everyone.
