Discussion: Radisson Airport Hotel Phoenix, Winter Worlds

Summary: There was a mistake on your bill. When made aware of the issue, the hotel staff looked into the matter and made the necessary adjustments.

Was there any benefit to putting the hotel (our partner) on blast in a public forum then labeling the staff as "stupid"? Answer: No.

Perhaps, people could work on hitting the 4 hole if the middle man is favoring the SS side of the bag. Perhaps, people could work on hitting balls down the lines.

Discussion: Session 1 Results Winter Worlds

I was the TD for Winter Nationals. With the hurricane and daily doses of sideways rain there were multiple changes to the schedules, including some on notebook paper. At the end, I dropped a discombobulated file in the mail while sprinting to the airport for a Sunday night flight to PHX. Not an excuse. I'm just letting you know why you aren't seeing the info you're looking for (yet). Tim

Discussion: Winter National results

All things considered, we made out pretty well.

THUR play was washed out, but we played extra rounds on TUE & WED to get ahead. Divisions that weren't completed on the field were played through the winner's bracket final.

Fields were ready to go FRI afternoon until a 1pm rain dump got us. We were able to get 60 AAA going later that afternoon. SAT was a massive undertaking- 11 rounds of games (5 inning games) to get us caught up. SUN games were played at regulation time. In the end, all teams in S2 played the 5gg that was advertised.

Thanks to everyone for supporting the tournament. It's been a rough stretch for folks in Central Florida. The restaurants and hotels in Polk County appreciated having you.

Discussion: Courtesy Runner Rule Question

I understand running for Bench, but why would the Say Hey kid need a courtesy runner?

Anywho... You could set your lineup as describedt, using players off the bench as CRs only. The CRs just couldn't run more than 1x per inning.

Discussion: 11 Players For 65 Brackets

We could nit pick this thing to death... Last year the 65s played with 10 on defense, this year they played with 11. Last year they hit with The Rock ball, this year they hit the Baden ball....


TooOldToFight- I took the bait and did the research you asked for-

2021 data
65 AAA seeding play data from Las Vegas (10 defenders)-
> 18% of games resulted in 1 team scoring less than 10 runs.
> 7% of games resulted in 2 teams scoring (a total of) less than 20 runs.
.
2022 data
65 AAA seeding play data from Las Vegas (11 defenders)-
> 7% of games resulted in 1 team scoring less than 10 runs.
> 36% of games resulted in 2 teams scoring (a total of) less than 20 runs.

Again- a small sample size but early returns don't appear to suggest that an 11th defender causes a drop in offensive output. Going to 11 defenders certainly didn't impact the 65s participation numbers as we had 71 teams in 2021 & 2022.

I'm a rules committee member and don't see anything in those numbers suggesting that the committee got it wildly wrong.

Discussion: Hows the new ball performing at worlds Dave?

I kept detailed stats of the seeding games in the 45 team, 60 AAA bracket on Thursday.... 1,458 runs were scored in seeding games alone- That's an average of 32 runs per game, which seems like a good number to me.


I'll agree that the ball picks up and carries dirt. A few teams quickly figured out that alcohol wipes do a nice job of cleaning the balls and getting the dirt off of them.

@SKings24, the Short Porch ball you're referring to isn't legal in most sanctions. I'm referring to all 7 of the models that they offer- While most reputable manufacturers produce balls to a "max" COR /compression (i.e. "not to exceed") standard, the balls you are promoting are designed with a "min" COR / compression stamp on them.

It's a HR derby ball, nothing more.
