Discussion: Bumped Up??

Their roster for the Winter World's in Phoenix is a "new" Regee's Rams team ... They lost 12 of the 16 roster players from the Las Vegas World's team, and replaced them with seven new players for 2024 (four of the current 11-man roster are in their 60's) ... By rule, if a team's roster falls below six (6) players from the previous year, they are deemed to be a "new" team and their rating is determined based on an analysis of the reconstituted current roster ... That determination for Regee's Rams is 55-Major ... There's no rating classification error in the Men's 55/60-Platinum division bracket ...

Discussion: Balls in Phoenix

Excerpt from the Manager Program ...
__________

BALLS:
Managers will receive six (6) game balls at check-in. Managers can pick the balls up at the director table when they drop off their waiver form. SSUSA will supply an additional game ball per team per game after teams play a sixth (6th) game. The ONLY softball allowed for the tournament is the BADEN FIRE. Players or teams can buy balls for $20 for three, $40 for six, etc. We do not sell single balls.

Due to the late withdrawal today of the 60-Major RBC Wealth Management (FL) team, revisions were required to reduce that from a nine to eight-team division at N. Collier Regional Park ... The changes affected only that division and have been posted online with a revision date of 11/06/2023 ... Good luck!

Discussion: Question about pitching masks and protective screens

rdfoz1 ... In SSUSA sanctioned tournament play, pitchers are required to wear face protecting gear, as defined in Rulebook 6.17 (page 37) ... Also, 6.18 describes recommended, but not required, additional gear a pitcher may wish to consider ... In tournament play, we do not allow pitching screens ... However, many local leagues that play under SSUSA rules have a local rule provision permitting, or mandating, those screens ... That is the sole purview of the local league's directors ... Good luck! ...

Discussion: CHAMPIONSHIP THURSDAY ISSUE @ SUNSET

Site Director Donna McGuire has advised us that Sunset fields are currently unplayable due to rain accumulations overnight, with no estimate of when that circumstance might change, if at all ... We are relocating all Directors, Umpires and teams from Sunset to Shadow Rock for today's games ... Games will attempt to start on the same schedule at 7:30 ... We are calling the early-game teams first and working our way to later starters ... GAME FIELDS change to 11 = 1, 12 = 2,13 = 3 and 14 = 4 ... The MASTER PLANNING GRID has been revised and posted for today ... This is an interesting challenge for all concerned ... Good luck!
