YES, you may ... You very likely received a "virtual" player registration card via email ... We don't send out physical "hard cards" unless the player specifically requests one ... Your D/L will be just fine! ... Good luck!

SESSION #1 • 60-MAJOR DEFECTION

We were advised just this morning of the withdrawal of a team (Hamel Builders 60) in the 60-Major Division due to COVID-19 issues ... The effects are:

• Reduces the division from 31 to 30 Teams
• Eliminates the USA National Championship game vs. Vandals (CA)
• Results in Vandals being a presumptive #2 Seed in the bracket ... They are, of course eligible to be the #1 Seed should they earn it based on their seeding games
• Causes nominal revisions to Thursday Pool play and significant revisions to Bracket play beginning Friday ...

The Round Robin seeding game schedule has been revised and posted ... We are currently working on the Bracket ... Please check with the Director's tomorrow for the updated Friday schedule (It will be posted here, too)

Good luck!

ODDS & ENDS • SESSIONS #1-3 •
Home Office Staff is migrating to Las Vegas today and here is an update on some things of varying significance in no particular order ... All of these items have been posted to the online schedule sets ... Please remember to refresh your download(s) to see the most recent file versions ... Good luck everyone! ...

• We lost a team in the S1 55-Major+ (CornerStone - OR) division this morning due to seven players contracting COVID-19 ... We wish them a full and speedy recovery ... Schedule revisions impact ONLY Arroyo Grande and ONLY the 55-Major+ division ...
• We lost a team in the (now 66-team) 40-Major division (Scudz Sportz Mutants - PA) and those changes impacted multiple locations and the rather complex 149-game Three-game-guarantee bracket ...
• There was a minor change in the S3 Friday morning 40-Major+ division round robin game sequencing to get a team out of an 8:00 AM game they could not have made due to flight issues ... Please check to see if your team may have been affected ...
• We changed two game match-ups in the S3 Women's 40-Major Friday round robin seeding schedule ... This eliminated a rematch between two teams that played each other FOUR times in the Western National Championships last month ... Sorry about that! ...

Discussion: A SOFTBALL LEGEND DIES


It is with a great deal of sadness that Senior Softball USA announces the death of longtime SSUSA President Bill Ruth. Bill, 87, died this morning after suffering a major stroke a few days ago in his home in Kent, Washington.

Bill has sponsored, managed and played on Senior Softball teams for almost 30 years. In fact, he has either played or managed baseball, softball, basketball and soccer teams for more than 60 years. His teams played at the highest level for many years.

Bill was also President of the Independent Sports Association, and was a partner in fishing lodges in Alaska, as well as a gold mine near the Yukon. Bill’s main business was real estate throughout the Northwest and in Cabo San Lucas in Mexico.

Bill was elected into four Halls of Fame: The USSSA Hall of Fame, Senior Softball National Hall of Fame, the SSUSA Hall of Fame and the ISA Hall of Fame. Bill became President of Senior Softball USA in 2000 and was a guiding voice behind the growth of SSUSA in both America and around the world.

Bill was a very close friend and partner, a fierce competitor with a wry sense of humor and a twinkle in his eye every time he, his wife Susan and I started a new adventure.

Discussion: Individual Team Member has a Covid19 Positive Test Result

Thanks, jfsully, that's certainly interesting information ... However, it's totally non-responsive to the question SeniorMan asked, so we're going to stay with the suggestion we made previously in asking him to contact the Sacramento Home Office on Tuesday ...

Discussion: Individual Team Member has a Covid19 Positive Test Result

Somehow it seems like some essential information may have been left out of this hypothetical ... If this is simply a theory question, then let's say in theory the team should withdraw immediately from the event ... If this isn't a theory question, but rather a (partial?) factual account, please call the Sacramento Office on Tuesday and ask to speak with either Terry or Fran ... Thanks!

REVISIONS FOR BOTH SESSION #1 AND SESSION #2 • Due to the 09/01/2021 withdrawal of a 60-Major team, that division has been reduced from 33 to 32 teams at Hollywood and Shadow Rock Parks for Session #1 ... We also inadvertently failed to include an 80-Major team that had entered late, and we knew about it, just didn't get them in the original schedule (that's on us) ... Changes affected just about every division playing at Arroyo Grande and Warm Springs Parks for Session #2 ... Changes are online and may require a refresh of your download(s) to view the most recent versions ... Good luck everyone!
