k man- Everything shows up on my screen. You probably need to refresh your page (on the top left of your screen, click on the icon that looks like a semi-circle with an arrow).

While I've got the audience, Session 2 wrapped up today-

65 AAA Talaga Masonry outlasted 65 AA Syracuse Cyclones, taking the title in the "IF NECESSARY" game.

70 AAA was won by Vios. 2nd place, Socrates.


Thanks to all 20 teams for participating this weekend. If you live in the Northeast or even the mid-Atlantic, you should consider this tournament next year.

Good parks (including new OF fencing at Smith Field), good umpires, scorekeepers for every game, free t-shirts for every player and close proximity to Joe Garlic's locally famous bar & grill. The portions are "yoooge" and the taste is "wicked good" I kid you not- the "small" meatball sub is 14" long.

REVISED SCHEDULE / FORMAT
Schools and other public facilities in CT are operating on ˝ day schedules due to a high heat and humidity forecast. A pre-tournament manager meeting was held this morning, where it was agreed that all teams would play just 2 games today. All players will be off of the field by 1:00pm today.

The 65 and 70 men’s divisions will return on Tuesday, playing a best 2 of 3 format in each bracket)so that no team plays more than 3 on that day.

Thanks in advance for your understanding.

See my last post.

I would invoke the intentional drop rule in the cited example.

Discussion: Was The ump

Not every fly ball in the infield is an "infield fly"

Situation: Bases loaded, nobody out.

Batter hits a soft line drive, no higher than 6 ft toward the 3rd baseman. An umpire isn't going to invoke the infield fly rule on that. At the same time, the umpire can't sit by and do nothing while a cagy infielder guides that batted ball to the ground, steps on 3rd and goes around the horn for a triple play.

That is a time when you would invoke the intentional drop rule.

Discussion: Was The ump

The batter is out on an infield fly call and on an intentional drop.

Here is the difference- an infield fly (live ball) COULD result in a double play if a runner tried to advance to the next base.

An intentional drop (dead ball) COULD NOT result in a double play because the runners, by rule are prohibited from advancing to the next base.



To answer your question- Once I've declared an infield fly, that is the call. I'm not changing it in the middle of the play.

Discussion: Was The ump

An intentionally dropped ball scenario would occur in any force situation with less than 2 outs-

Runner on 1b
Runner on 1b & 2b
Runner on 1b, 2b & 3b
Runner on 1b & 3b

The intent is to prevent a defender from intentionally dropping (or letting drop) a fly ball, soft line drive, etc in order to confuse a runner that would normally have frozen for the purposes of turning a double play.

If the umpire sees this, he should call / signal DEAD BALL. The batter is out and all runners return to the last base occupied at the time of the pitch.

An experienced umpire knows an intentionally dropped when he sees one and will call it.

Discussion: CONNECTICUT MASTERS GAMES SCHEDULE (June 16-17)

All-

A draft of the CT Masters Games schedule was presented to management yesterday afternoon. They have asked that I revise the schedule, playing more games on Saturday so that players can finish earlier on Sunday and enjoy some family time on Father's Day.

With that directive in mind, I am revising the schedules and wanted to pass the following information along.

1) Revised schedules should be released by the 5:00pm today.
2) I cannot guarantee that any "late start" requests will be met.
3) Teams should expect to play at least 3, and probably 4 games on SAT.
4) The tournament will conclude on SUN (late morning, depending on IF games).
5) Inclement weather is always a possibility- Schedules could change, so please understand that.


PLANNING-
Men's 50s = SAT / SUN at Sage Park in Berlin, CT
Men's 60s = SAT / SUN at Smith Field in Middletown, CT
Men's 65s = MON / TUE at CT Sportsplex in N. Branford, CT

To clarify-

Saturday play has been canceled.
Sunday play is pending (not currently raining here).
The parks staff will re-evaluate the fields later this afternoon.

Current plan is to play ball on Sunday using a revised format. 3 game guarantee brackets for all divisions.

All coaches have been called with revised start times / field assignments. Messages were left for those that didn't answer the phone. A copy of the updated schedule will be posted to the SSUSA website in the next hour or so.

It appears that there is a breakdown in communication here. Managers received start times and other relevant information on the Crabtown Classic earlier today.

Strictly my opinion here, but anyone driving 6 hours to play in a tournament should strongly consider a hotel room.

Tim Mowery-

There was no guarantee of a Sunday schedule release made. I am currently working in Reno but am also working on the Crabtown schedule.
A draft has been submitted for approval and I HOPE to release it on Monday.

If you play on a 60s team you will begin on Friday and finish on Saturday.

If you play on a 40s, 50s or 55s team you should plan for a Saturday morning start and a Sunday afternoon championship game.

MANAGERS will receive start times and bracket info before anyone else.

As always, thank you for being patient.

There are some changes potentially happening with the 65s and 70s group which could impact start times for SAT morning play.

Rather than post start times, change them and re-post all teams should anticipate a SUN evening schedule release. It may be sooner.

Thanks in advance for your patience.

Based out of MD, Superior 50s is looking for a SS / Middle infielder to help out this season. The team is rated AAA, but has room for an out of rating (Major) player on the roster.

Players from MD, PA, VA, WV, DE and NJ players would be geographically eligible. If interested contact Steve Preston (SteveP21@comcast.net)
