Rule 7.3(1) if batter erases part of the box he get a strike. However since the UMP is an 'offociating' component he should suffer a game payment forture or something more serious if he does it... No mention the Umps doing the obliteration...not good.

I'm sure you're not the only player that had to adjust for one reason or another, but every player has to contend with it. As for being called a dick that isn't good either. I think he has problems.

Discussion: Wants to play and practice

Start out by joining a local league to get playing experience. Go hit on your own or with a friend for hitting practice.

Practice, practice, practice, it pay off.

That might shed some of the Fuzz....lol
Good luck & stay healthy.

Discussion: getting 3 games vs our 5

Unfortunate for rain outs but it happens.
You might consider getting a Farmers Almanac for they are pretty accurate...however the weather patterns have been changing the last couple years so they could be wrong now...I haven't used one for the last two years.
Checking on weather forecast far ahead of game days and long before time runs out to cancel with no loss of monies is important.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Boombah bats

Looked at the site yesterday and while they do not give the BPF ratings I think they will be inline with the 1.21. They got caught a few years back on one over the limit. The few I saw were not SSUSA or senior bats. All other assn's were there in one form or another with 2 piece bats primarily but not all. Maybe I missed them. The Boss 3 is what i looked at.
I'm a bataholic and didn't see anything I'd care to try out when I can get back into it. Have some good looking shoes though.

Discussion: Re-Rated without playing a tournament

Tone,
I think IF you had all your info needed (beneficial & ratings related) needed for re-evaluation, if all was favorable you might get what you want. Remember all I have is what is posted you have all related info needed from past events or should have to back up your points for this. Good luck.
I believe thay are as fair as possible as have about the best ratings 'scale' in use by any assn.

Food for thought: Some other thoughts\info to get might be umpires views and score book copies. Many teams keep them but not all and it is a valuable source for game info.

Discussion: Re-Rated without playing a tournament

I know a team that won I believe it was 7 events years ago and was never moved up. Team doesn't exist now under same manager & do not see it listed now. That was a Ca team back then.
I look at it as who you know, who you....

How about:
Boycott their events. A lot of no interest &\or shows or teams that usually show should hurt them.
Money is the driving force these days, hurt them in the pocket book.

Tone....it down somewhat.
Been there.

As I see it you initiated a 'new team". And as such they usually a start off as AAA, but IF, SSUSA finds "discrepancies" in the proposed roster as far as players go, & may have played at a higher ratings bracket within the last two years and IF again, there are more than 3 players that did so, you're likely to be booted up as it seems happened at least as how I read this. But I've been wrong before.
I played on a team a couple years ago that was an established team but wanted to go to a different event. They picked up at least three above our rating and were moved up. I didn't go with them cause I knew they didn't have a chance and they didn't do well.
Teams are given the primary "rating", however players are also rated* and it does effect the team they play on. Via the rating index which works pretty well.
* player ratings come into effect by the team they play on whether or not they (the players) are any good.
So it you pick up a player know their team history. That's part of the managers job. I think it you are looking and need a definite answer as to who is rated what, Call and ask them, I think you will get a reply from most likely George.
Teams always seem to get pissed when moved up but rarely complain when moved down unless their performance saw to that on its own.
One thing is for sure there are many areas that lack M+ teams that play, and having to play in combined brackets in my opinion sucks. But it is a event to attend if you think it would be worth the time & expense.
One way to find out who possible might attend is to look at the past tournaments played... most teams seem to attend the same ones each year.
You'll work it out. Have fun and enjoy the game but stay healthy.

Discussion: The Combat Ambush...revisited

Alan,
I think the 'Break in' is what a lot of guys do not care for, time spent doing the thing hoping it will get there faster than it will in reality. Hot out of the wrapper is where its at.
Trouble there too is no two guys will get there at the same time with likable results because we are all different, abilities, power et al.
Hope your doing well.

Discussion: looking for two or three major-plus players to play in Reno

Mike, Reading these new post it make it clear. I didn't look at the events you won to see results. Who knows maybe you'll pull Reno off and get another boot up. Either way, give it your all and have a great time there.
Results in the other assn are not so hot from my perspective in reading results.
Hope all is well with you also. I think we had a few good times back then.
Stay healthy.

Omar, I guess you were my official greeter in as much as you were the first one I met and knew there. :>)

There were so many I hadn't seen in years that remembered me, it meant a lot to me.
Hope to see ya* around again, maybe even in the "swing" of things next year. * and many others also

Discussion: CAN-Sirs SSUSA NorCal Championships 2016 - Men's 70+ Silver Division

Tournament was well run from my perspective at the Sac complex. I didn't see or hear about any problems amongst the players.
All teams were competitive.
I didn't go to Elk Grove but have played at all locations in the past and didn't see back then any field problems.

It was great to see players i players against & with 15 years ago or more, even a guy I went to high school with 50 years ago.
Awesome time.

Discussion: face masks

IMO the rational solution would be to do a 180* and return to the alloy bats and 47 cor balls. Balls will still fly out of the park as they did back then. If that is what your trying to get now. I can't recall anyone getting seriously wacked back then. But I have seen many with the newer composite bats.
Sure the money would dry up for the associations on sanctioning the high tech bats for a bit, too bad. But IF it safety that IS your concern, thats where the focus should be, on the bats, then the balls would fall in line as they were back then.
I think the mask issue is a facade, it keeps the manufacturers happy and money coming in to assns. But that too would come back with the re-tooling. Maybe even provide more jobs. I doubt they trashed the old extruder machines.
No need to this forcing someone to purchase & wear the gear should they pitch.

Discussion: Intentional walk rule

i'd walk him on gereral principals if nothing more. Perhaps he can't hit his way out of a wet paper bag either. A waaste of time throwing 4 balls he can't hit anyway standing inside the box.
We play ASA league here and you can just motion for the intentional walk. No need to pitch them. I've been walked and have walked a few that way.
