Discussion: Batting Practice at Golden Egle

Enviro-Vac • NO batting practice is allowed on the soccer fields at Golden Eagle, and has not been since the very first year there ... This prohibition includes hitting from the natural grass onto the soccer fields ... Violators are subject to ejection from Golden Eagle for the remainder of the day, which is a Sparks rule and NOT an SSUSA rule and would be a very unfortunate circumstance ... You MAY take BP on the tournament softball fields if you have the first game of the day ... You may also take BP on the Golden Eagle Baseball Fields #5-6, but NOT on the Little League Fields #1-4 ... For all of Session #1 (May 26-28) and for Friday (June 2) of Session #3, you may also take BP at Shadow Mountain Softball Complex on Sparks Blvd. because we are not using it on those days ...

Discussion: Heart of Texas & State Tournament El Paso

CRASH • In the order of your first three questions ...
[1] The Heart of Texas schedule was authored by the independent Tournament Director, and NOT by the SSUSA scheduling division as would be the case with a TOC Qualifier or other major National event;
[2] El Paso was the only Texas metropolitan area that expressed a desire to host the Texas State Championships for 2017; and
[3] See answer to question [2] above ...

DRAFT Game Schedules and Brackets for SESSION #1 (Men's 50+ and 55+) of the SSUSA's Rock 'n Reno Challenge Cup 2017 in Reno, Sparks and Carson City, NV, have been posted and are available from the links below and on the event's Tournament page ... As always, these DRAFT schedules are TENTATIVE, are subject to change and become final ONLY when released as "OFFICIAL" at the Manager's meeting before play commences ...

NOTE: Managers who do NOT attend the Manager meeting will be presumed to be fully informed on ALL matters (such as schedule changes, tourney formats and rules issues) discussed at the meeting. Tournament rosters are “frozen” as of the Manager’s Meeting. NO on-site player additions are allowed, as all roster changes were previously approved through the Sacramento home office ... Managers who do not attend the Manager Meeting, and do not send a representative, will be prohibited from beginning tournament play before check-in with Field Director.

The Participating Teams List and the Master Games & Fields Grid have also been posted ... Good luck to all!

Discussion: ATLANTIC COAST CHAMPIONSHIPS 2017 • DRAFT Game Schedules and Brackets

SESSION #1 THIRD REVISION • The team that withdrew in the 80-AAA Division on Friday has re-entered the tournament ... HOWEVER, before they did so this morning, the OTHER two teams in that Division withdrew! ... Yes, that's true! ... The next set of changes are online with a revision date of 05/15/2017 ...

Discussion: Homerun - Hit and Sit

Bad call ... As to your 1st question:
From Rulebook page 47 ...

§8.4(7) • FOUR-BASE AWARD
Any fair ball touched by a player on either side of the fence that clears or has cleared the fence in fair territory before touching the ground will be a "four-base award," and will not be included in the total over-the-fence home run count. NOTE: The batter may return directly to the dugout and all other runners may return directly to the dugout. EFFECT: The concept known as “hit and sit” is permitted.

As to your 2nd question: Moot point if the umpire and/or the Tournament Director eventually get the rule right!

tscs000 ... A couple of quick items for the sake of accuracy ...

• The Brickyard Invitational is an SSUSA sanctioned/administered event, NOT U-Trip (USSSA) ...
• The SSUSA and ISA use the same umpire uniform shirts AND Rulebook, which is what it says on the front cover of the Rulebook ...
• The batter-runner should NOT have been called out for carrying the bat to 1B, or destinations beyond, under SSUSA/ISA rules ...

raiderman66 ... Bad ump call ... But if it happens again, please ask for a Director (and respectfully decline to continue to play while you wait) to come to the field ... That's a three second over-rule and it will go the way of the offense 100% of the time ...

SESSION #1 REVISION • Due to our inadvertent inclusion of a team in the 65-Silver Division that had, in fact, not entered the tournament, changes were required affecting the Men's 65+ Division ... The 65-Silver is now seven rather than eight teams ... The changes there required moving ONE game on Tuesday in the 65-Platinum to an earlier time (2:00 PM instead of 3:30 PM) ... The changes are online with a revision date of 05/08/2017 ...

Discussion: Homerun - Hit and Sit

Wrong call on two counts • [1] "Hit and Sit" does NOT require touching 1st base (or any base for those on-base at the time of the HR) and [2] NO penalty in SSUSA Rules for carrying your bat with you ...

Discussion: Lights Out 55AA

Magsdad ... We respectfully disagree with your conclusion about Lights Out 55 ... Their "cross-rating" game results with the 55-AAA at the LVSSA/SSUSA Southwest Championships last month does not yield data to support your opinion ... They were 1-2 in pool play against 55-AAA teams, losing 14-15 (or 9-15 w/out the equalizer), winning 23-20 (or losing 18-20 w/o the equalizer) and losing 10-19 (or 5-19 w/out the equalizer) ... Absent the equalizers, they would have been 0-3 with an average run differential of -7.33 runs per game ... Had they already been rated 55-AAA, that scoring data, with limited results, would support a rating reduction to 55-AA, which is where they are currently ...

Discussion: BRICKYARD INVITATIONAL QUALIFIER 2017 • DRAFT Game Schedules and Brackets

SATURDAY UPDATE • Tournament play began as re-scheduled at 9:00 AM this morning and is on time under excellent softball field and weather conditions ... Kudos to the field crew professionals at Midwest for an amazing job of getting ready ... Two more teams were unannounced no-shows this morning ... The multiple changes and restructuring required by these latest defections are being handled marvelously by the on site Directors, and too fast to be efficiently updated here ... Check with them for the latest game and bracket sequencing ... Well done to all players and tournament administration folks involved in Indianapolis! ...
