Discussion: RULLING

Thanks coop3636 ... Clean Up: The pitcher is not considered to be an "infielder" for purposes of the proper application of the rule ... The pitcher is a "defender", but not an "infielder" ...

Discussion: Rockin' Reno Field Assignments

Not yet ... We'll have a better idea as we get closer to the entry deadline and team counts become more clear ... But we can tell you which groups will NOT be playing in Carson City because the Centennial Park facility is not available to us at those times ...

• MEN's 50's and 55's
• MEN's 65's through MEN'S 85's

Discussion: Hollywood Park Vegas Help

Hollywood Park was closed for a little over a year, and just recently re-opened, while the two existing fields were completely re-done and a third brand new field was added on the SE side ... Clark County also constructed a new services/bathroom structure to eliminate the former use of Porta-A-John's or hiking down to the Community Center ... Shade trees can best be described as "non-existent", so plan on bring-your-own for the one day you will be playing there ... The Google Earth imagery is from early November last year, which is not reflective of late April growth patterns ... The Clark Co. people and our own who have gone out there are very pleased with the level of improvement ... "New" Hollywood should be clearly superior to "Old" Hollywood, but of course an objective evaluation next weekend will be more accurate than pre-event non-current speculation ... Good luck!

Discussion: LVSSA/SSUSA SOUTHWEST CHAMPIONSHIPS 2017 • DRAFT Game Schedules and Brackets

DRAFT Game Schedules and Brackets for SESSION #2 the LVSSA/SSUSA 2017 Southwest Championships in Las Vegas have been posted and are available from the links below and on the event's Tournament page ... The caveats mentioned above for SESSION #1 apply here as well ...

BRACKETS NOTE • Some of the Elimination Brackets are currently UNDER CONSTRUCTION and are not quite complete ... ALL Friday and Sunday games are accurately reflected, but the large Saturday games demand requires more time in some instances ... We posted these early to avoid delaying publicatioon of the Round Robin seeding game schedules and match-ups ... As they are completed, they will be posted, so there's no need to call the Office to ask ...

DRAFT Game Schedules & Brackets (PDF's)

• Men's: 40-Masters | 50's | 55's | 60's

• Women's: 40-Masters and 50's

• Complete: All Ages and Divisions [Large file: 52 pages]

Discussion: Tournament seeding

Mango ... The short version rationale was to address the too-frequent circumstance of more than a few extremely strong teams giving the equalizer and then either negotiating for, or hoping to be, VISITOR ... Ideally, they like to be ahead by nine or so runs, avoiding the flip-flop, so they can have "batting practice" against an outclassed opponent in the top of the open inning ... We have no objection to a clearly stronger team giving the equalizer having a big open inning, so long as it's in the bottom of the open to win by one ... A secondary benefit is in keeping tournament play as close to on-time as possible ...

Discussion: What is the call? Fair or Foul

The "fair or foul ball" determination is made solely by reference to where the ball is in relation to the foul line (extended vertically like the plane of a football goal line) at the moment it is first touched by the defensive player, regardless where it first touches the ground ... Your fact pattern includes a statement that: "..If the defender let the ball hit the ground it will be a foul ball.." seems to indicate that it was over foul territory when first touched ... If so, this is a foul ball ...

Discussion: Hot box

RRG ... The SSUSA Rulebook does not specifically address turning back toward a base other than toward Home plate in an attempt to evade, avoid or delay a tag ... Between Home and 1st Base, this is a dead ball out and all on-base runners return to the base occupied at the time of the pitch ... The Rulebook reference is §8.3 H. on page 45 ... Garocket: We agree with your analysis as well ...

DRAFT Game Schedules and Brackets for the SSUSA's 2017 Tidewater Classic in Virginia Beach, VA, have been posted and are available from the links below and on the event's Tournament page ...

Olden Slow ... Please call the SSUSA office at (916) 326.5303 on Monday and ask for one of the "eligibility" staff members ... They can give you specific guidance and will have access to your complete player history, rather than the generic and non-private approach here ... Thanks!

Discussion: Ejection

B.J. is correct ... If the team playing "short-handed" loses another player for any other reason, such as an injury, a second ejection or a player having to leave, the game ends in a forfeit.

Discussion: Spring World Championships in Mesquite

Bruce303 ... We'll look at the Field #3 situation for both Hunter and Pioneer Parks next year ... The easy solution is simply to schedule evening/night games at say, 6:30, 8:00 and maybe even 9:30 PM, on the other two fields and leave the #3's "dark" ... It's certainly do-able ...

No problem on this end Hail ... The annual import/shipping containers order from BSN/Anaconda got hung up in customs, so we used the MicroCell for the T.O.C. and ordered enough to cover the Spring National's there last week just to be safe ... Mesquite/St. George used the Trump/Stote standard ball, as will all remaining events this year except for the two Las Vegas tourneys ...
