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.

Discussion: Pitching masks revisited

Based on the increased number of middle shots I've seen this year in 70 Major+, I can only assume it's because the pitchers are now "protected"; that's the only difference in the game from previous years.

Discussion: Pitching masks revisited

Agree with Duke. I've been hit more this year than ever in the past without a helmet.
My take though is a lot more guys are going middle because now the pitchers are wearing protection, helmet seems to have OK'd the idea that the middle is open! Played against my former team (aged up) at the Spring Worlds and took 3 direct blows from friends. Like Duke, no head shots. Reaction is slower with helmet, getting older doesn't help either.
Some of the new middle-shooters are stronger hitters than some of the guys that went middle in the past. Number of opportunities to be hit has risen greatly.

Ken is the "real deal." If you are in need of an outfielder or just want to improve the outfield you have, you need to take a look at this guy. When I played with him in Palm Springs, Ken had all the tools. great team mate.
