Discussion: Looking 75 age group

Birdman65 ... Someone is "making rules up on the fly" regarding the 75+ division region boundaries for the 2019 Season and they tricked you into believing it ... SSUSA makes rules changes only once per year, at the Annual Rules Committee meetings in late November ... No such rule change has yet been considered ...

Discussion: Arthroscopic Partial Meniscectomy (APM)

SSUSA is looking to hear from players (over 65) who’ve had meniscus surgery.

A recent study done by Johns Hopkins has added to the claim that a "common surgery designed to remove damaged, worn ends of the thin rubbery cartilage in the knee joint brings little or no benefit to people over the age of 65.”

The study can be found here
https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/news/media/releases/common_knee_operation_in_elderly_constitutes_low_value_care_new_study_concludes

If you’ve had the operation, APM, SSUSA would like your thoughts on the study and if the surgery was beneficial for you or not. This will be part of an article in the Summer Edition of Senior Softball News.

Discussion: HOME PLATE MAT

Just a bit of heads-up advice if you use these folks ... The dimensions in the product drop-down box for ordering SSUSA mats does not match our official size specification of 19" x 34½" ... Whether or not the product actually matches our official spec. is unknown ... Also, the 1/8" thickness is very thin, may not have long term durability and is more likely to slide around rather than stay in place ... The 1/4" mat, at $59.95, is a better option but not nearly as affordable as the ones we order from Sacramento Rubber ...

MEN'S 55-AAA (BRAMBLETON PARK) REVISION • Due to a roster composition issue, one formerly 55-AAA team (Chesterfield Classics) added two players that caused their rating to voluntarily change to 55-Major ... It's too late in the game (post-schedule-publication) to restructure the entire tournament at Brambleton, so they will play as scheduled giving a 5-Run OR 11-defensive-player equalizer in their "new" 55-Gold division ... Should Chesterfield Classics win, the Runner-up will also earn 1st Place Awards and a T.O.C. bid in 55-AAA ... Good luck!
