Discussion: Doc Romero

CAT,

Doc Romeo (no "r") is a fine facility. The infields and outfields are fine. There IS a restroom there but as staff noted, it is about 175 yards from the center of the complex. SSUSA brings in a port o pottie for those that would prefer a shorter walk.

They also arrange for an on-site concession stand.

I have umpired a few of these games in the past. Hitting the ball square is more important than the type of bat you use.

Discussion: Using one ball for all games

There are 2 sides to the game (offense and defense). Hitters will adjust to whatever is thrown at them.

There is no defensive adjustment you can make on a ball that is hit 400 ft. And, as we age up our reaction time doesn't improve. Hot balls and aging players are a bad mix.

In my opinion, there is no need to change. (Dare I say that Mango and I agree?)



One more thing... as a guy who organizes leagues and tournaments for players of all ages, I can only shake my head and chuckle when somebody suggests that balls are free and / or provided by the sponsors. It is simply not the case.

Discussion: Mid-Atlantic Last Chance Tournament (Sterling, VA)

Hello Everyone-

Thank you for your patience while awaiting the schedules. I was working the Northern Championships in Lansing this past weekend. I am working on schedules now and hope to have them completed before I catch my flight this afternoon.

I expect to have them finalized and emailed to coaches later tonight or first thing tomorrow (TUES) morning.

65s / 70s teams begin on Thursday. For planning purposes those teams can expect a 10am start time.

Discussion: Eastern Results from Raleigh

gman67.... There were only two 40s teams entered in the tournament. Having the 40s play a best 5 of 9 wasn't going to happen, so they were combined with the 50 Major teams.

The 40/50 group played a standard 3 game guarantee bracket (not double elimination), which explains how Mid-Atlantic had 3 losses when it was all said & done.

As to why some 50 yr old teams never played a 40s team... well, that is just the way the bracket unfolded. There was only one 50s team (AB Contracting) that didn't play against a 40s team. Had AB Contracting lost at 12:30 on Saturday, OR had Superior 40s won at 2:00 on Saturday then every 50 yr old team would have played at least one game against a younger opponent.

Discussion: VEGAS FIELDS

Gonedeep43,

The 50-AAA division is the largest in the tournament. With 60 or more teams participating, no single facility in Las Vegas can handle it. To get it done on time you have to play games deep into the night. Some of the parks you are probably hoping to play at (BLD, Arroyo, Sunset, Desert Breeze) have league or other restrictions so they aren't an option for the large bracket divisions. Six of the eight diamonds used for the 50-AAA bracket games are excellent. The other two diamonds just aren't as nice.

When the WMC first moved to Las Vegas, the 50-AAA bracket was played in a manner such that teams had to drive from one park to another based on the timing of their wins and losses. That created bad feelings from players who spent their weekend in traffic and/or racing from one park to another. None of that happens under the current system.

CT Sportsplex is a privately owned facility that offers everything from youth baseball tournaments to birthday parties. Unfortunately, there are cost and availability issues that prevent us from using the park on weekends.

Discussion: Bat Thrown Out Of Tourney, Why Not Player????

KGB,

A bat was removed from play at Phillip Bolen Park on Friday after the end cap came out. That bat has been sent to the Sacramento office for further evaluation.

IF we are talking about the same bat / same situation, I can assure you that no SSUSA staff member walked to the 1B area to speak with the player during that game and no SSUSA staff member deemed the bat to be altered. As staff pointed out in his post, I coud not impose a penalty on without confirmation.

The end cap came out during play. That is the ONLY statement that I made about the bat. I did not (and would not) make any comment on the interior status of the bat to any person at the park. Doing so would have been It would have been completely inappropriate.
