Paco ... We are moving more and more of our communication to the membership to the email mode ... We encourage any registered member who is not receiving our Newsletter every three weeks or so to send us an email with a good email address for you so you're in the communication loop ... Send a short note to register@seniorsoftball.com with your name, player ID number if you know it, and any other updates like a change of address and cell phone number and we'll update your player database record ... Thanks

Paco ... This is the important part of the email that went out to all players on Atlantic Coast rosters for whom we have a good email address ... Hopefully you were one of those who should have received it ...

Steinbrenner ... Yep, we DID say that (big as life in the second post of this thread), based on planning to use the Elk Grove Complex and Sacramento on Friday (only) ... It was quite a surprise to us on Thursday evening to learn we did not have that complex, so Plan "B" was up ... Davis had only two fields and Woodland was already booked, as was Sacramento (which we knew), for the weekend ... Fortunately, Foskett had a tourney cancel, so those four fields worked perfectly as the only viable solution ...

For future reference, booking in the Host hotels we contract with seldom, if ever, results in the "Priceline Problem" ... Countless times over the years, Fran has picked up the phone after talking with a team and gotten the problem resolved at no cost ... Maybe we should also look at whether to discontinue the policy of trying to "crystal ball" TENTATIVE Field Assignments in multi-site events ... An overwhelming percentage of the time we get it right, but occasionally when we don't, things can get a little loud ... Good luck everybody! ...

Discussion: MILWAUKEE CONFIRMED TEAM LISTING

The Milwaukee Classic is run by independent Tournament Directors Thom Mikich and Jack Simon ... We show 25 teams entered as of now, but that number MAY NOT REFLECT ALL ENTRIES, since they receive the entries, not SSUSA ... We have activated the team list Tab on the event Tournament page, but, again, that may not be completely up to date ... Thom's contact information is available from the Tournament page and our best advice is for you to contact him directly ... Hope this helps ...

FIELD CONDITIONS UPDATE • The Raleigh Parks and Recreation Department has advised us that due to recent (and continuing) rains, there will be a rain delay on Saturday (ONLY) morning to allow more time for field readiness and preparation .. The entire Saturday slate of games has been moved 2˝ hours LATER and will begin at 11:00 AM rather than at 8:30 AM ... Park gates will open at 9:30 AM ... Good luck everyone! ...

SESSION #2 REVISION • Due to a rating change for a 60-Major team (changed to 60-AAA), revisions were required to the entire Men's 60+ Division ... The changes also had a ripple effect on the Men's 40/50-Gold (bracket only) and the Men's 50-AAA (seeding games AND bracket) ... Changes are now online, and the affected pages carry a revision date of 05/06/2016 ... Thank you and good luck!

Discussion: Is It LEGAL?

B94 ... Yes, the Rating Index chart link is available on this website from the TOURNAMENTSRULESTeam Rating Index (R/I) • Player/Team Experience ratings chart PDF digital file drop down menu above

Az Iz ... The incompatible roster composition will show in our internal player database on the rosters of the respective teams ... If it comes up ahead of the tournament, we'll flag it and talk to the managers and/or the player to discuss and resolve it ... If it's done on-site and we're not involved, the most likely outcome will be that we will notify the player that he is no longer eligible to participate at 65-AA for a two-year period until the 60-AAA rating experience history expires ... The system will automatically flag the player and prohibit him to be added to a 65-AA roster for that time ... Any penalties would be considered after a non-public inquiry ...

Discussion: Is It LEGAL?

According to the general rule, he would NOT be eligible for the 65-AA (Rating Index: 3) because of his 60-AAA (R/I = 5) experience ... Generally, players may only participate at a skill level not more than one Rating Index level less than their highest rated experience history ... For a specific player inquiry, which may have extenuating circumstances that could be an exception to the general rule, please contact the Sacramento Office at (916) 326.5303 to discuss your situation in detail ...

Discussion: Looking to join 55 team in Indiana

Teams may add players on the first day of the tournament if:

• The player is already currently registered with SSUSA;
• The player is otherwise eligible as to age and residency to be on that team's roster; and
• The player is added BEFORE the team plays it's FIRST game of the tournament ... After the first pitch, rosters are locked and no additions can be made ...

Good luck, we hope you find something that fits for you ...
