Discussion: 8.6 - Avoiding Collisions

baseballbill ... We completely agree with B.J. on this one, but here's a little caveat ... This is an umpire's judgment as to the distinction between "avoiding a collision" and "evading a tag" ... The base runner's assertion of avoidance must be supported by the umpire's judgment, and that judgment call is not subject to protest or appeal ...

Discussion: MIDWEST CHAMPIONSHIPS

Thanks STL0 ... We had no problems with the facilities in Shawnee (other than the obvious "not available" status) ... Mark's premise that the Minnesota and Wisconsin teams would return to Shawnee is probably a stretch now that there is a more geographically sensible (to them) TOC qualifier alternative in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area ... The five Iowa teams that went to Minnesota last month could also be a 50/50 proposition for returning to Shawnee, too ...

Discussion: Rosen Bag On the Field

Crash1 ... There's nothing in the SSUSA Rule Book that prohibits a rosin bag being available for use ... And it won't be a problem, of course, until the first time a batted ball hits it or a base runner or fielder trips over it! ... We're inclined to approve it, with maybe placing it on the outfield side of second base being a workable location ... Interesting question ... Thanks!

Discussion: MIDWEST CHAMPIONSHIPS

This line of inquiry/request is probably best directed to the municipal and the Mid-America sports complex people in Johnson County ... They are the ones who allocated our former multi-year Midwest Championships dates to a youth tournament, forcing us to relocate ... We were quite content in Shawnee, just as we are now in Rogers, AR ... It's sort of nice to feel wanted! ...

Discussion: Makeup of a Major team

Lee Lee ... The key variable in this is the individual player rating experience history of the player(s) involved ... If they just happened to age up to 65's this season coming from a 60-M+ team, it's pretty simple and our previous response holds true ... But if they were already 65 and "playing down" to 60-M+, it could be a different answer ...Here's our response: Please call the Sacramento Home Office at (916) 326.5303 during normal business hours, with actual player names and team(s) involved, so they can give you a definitive answer ...

Discussion: Couple of Questions about Winter Championships

ricwood69 ... Please call the Sacramento Home Office at (916) 326.5303 during business hours on the Left Coast and someone will walk you through the (relatively simple) process ... As for the "new" team question, your player profile indicates you may be a 40-Masters team ... As a completely "new" team, your initial rating would be 40-Major, which is the middle of the three ratings in that age group (Major+ and AAA being the other two) ... If your roster is comprised of players who have played SSUSA previously, their individual and collective rating experience history could have an impact, either way, on your team's initial rating level ...

The Phoenix event has been very well attended in the 40-Masters Division (both men and women) and is one we would encourage you to try! ... Welcome to the fray and good luck! ...

Discussion: Time for SSUSA to listen.

local ... I can't find any SSUSA administered tournaments where I scheduled any 65+ team that could have lost on a Saturday ... That age division normally, except for the TOC, doesn't play on weekends ... A customer service observation or complaint, regardless of the enterprise, is normally much easier to address when we have an [1] identifiable customer, [2] team or division or [3] maybe just the event ... It's tough to glean much information from a two year old post about Reno ... If you're expecting some sort of meaningful response, it would help to have some specifics ... Thanks!
