Discussion: Ratings

Tmac808's "Q" was about the T.O.C. ... Ratings issues are team-specific and not a public commentary item on our part in a largely anonymous and unregulated environment ... Managers of affected teams are contacted by SSUSA directly and privately ... Current ratings are always available from the RATING pages of this website ...

Discussion: Ratings

Tmac808 ... Teams that earn a Tournament of Champions bid are invited to play at the same rating they had when they earned their bid, regardless of a subsequent change ... The (very rare) exception is in the event a team won bids in two rating levels .. In that case, they will play in the T.O.C. at the higher of the two ... Congrats!

Discussion: Midwest Championship Rogers Ark

Pitcher22 ... We'll take the observations and questions in order ...

• You COULD have played 7-inning games starting in the bracket if you wouldn't have minded Saturday games ending at about 12:30 AM on Sunday morning, with winners/survivors being due back at 8:00 AM ... The SEVEN total rounds of games (five from Friday and the first two rounds on Sunday) could have been played at 7:30, 9:00, 10:45, Noon, 1:15, 2:30 and 3:45 (ending at 5:00 PM IF everything was on time ... Then the FIVE rounds of Saturday bracket games, if there was no break between seeding and Bracket, would have been at 5:00, 6:30, 8:00, 9:30 and 11:00 PM, ending around 12:30 AM IF everything was on time ...
• We played the 5-innings format to avoid that late a Saturday finish, and the actual finish was about 9:00 PM after the 7:45 PM games ... SSUSA DOES NOT do the 1-1 count unless it's the second-to-last resort before 1-pitch, so that's an easy answer ... For the specifics of the weather affected recovery procedures, please see page 54 of the Rule Book at SECTION 10 - ADVERSE WEATHER ...
• There was no "decision made in Sacramento" unless you are referring to the early morning (4:00 AM Pacific Time) discussion between the onsite Directors and the National Scheduling Consultant in California ... The consensus was reached very quickly that it was prudent and appropriate to apply the Rule Book provisions that are designed specifically for this type of adverse weather circumstance ... We did so ...
• The Directors on site, along with the superb grounds crew in Rogers, worked their tails off appropriately, intelligently and completely within the guidelines we have for dealing with Mother Nature ... We couldn't be more proud of their performance ... Mother Nature led in the early innings, but didn't win ...

We would do (and have done) the same thing under similar circumstances in a heartbeat! ... It's a proven methodology that gets ALL of the games played and maintains the integrity of the competition ...

Hope this helps your understanding! ...
