Johnny23

As long as the player is on the SSUSA approved roster prior to the first pitch of your first game, you can arrive for Bracket Play and sign in.

If you are not on the roster before the first pitch of your first Pool Play game, you can't play.

I hope that answers your questions.

If you are asking if a TEAM can skip pool play, that is a completely different discussion and subject to the wisdom of Dave Dowell.

Thank you

Unfortunately since we are 55AAA, we cant use you. Your Major Plus tag follows you up to the next age bracket.

Big D 6 and all others.

Thank you all for looking out. I got the problem solved about 2 hours ago.

Good luck this weekend.

Due to injury and a work schedule change, I find us in need of an outfielder for Winter Worlds starting Friday and potentially a utility player.

If you are available, please email me at hc50ssoftball@gmail.com

Discussion: 2023 team ratings

It looks like the auto promotions from Worlds is completed. But I have not seen any down ratings. We went 1 and 4 at Worlds, 0 and 3 in Bracket in 46 team pool...

I think we would be close to bottom 5...

Discussion: East Vs West National Championship Game

Knuckleball

How it worked for us in 2016 in 50AA. We won 50AA Western Nationals, there was was no opponent for us at Worlds in Las Vegas so we won National Championship by default ( I still have the shirt).

However, in Bracket Play we were seeded based on our record. We were told, had we won Vegas Worlds, would have won Triple Crown.


I don't know if the rules have changed since then. But this is how it worked.

Best of luck in Las Vegas.

Discussion: Player released and playing on another team in same age group

TX

You are correct in your understanding with the one exception.

One Worlds in Las Vegas are over, all team rosters are reset. A player that has been released and added to a team in the same age bracket. If he is released again before Worlds he cant be added to another roster until basically October 15.

I believe there is an exception. If the second team that adds a player folds, then the player
who was added to the second team can then get added to a new team.

Hope this helps.

Discussion: Reno Tournament

Good Afternoon

I am looking for two players to fill out our roster for the Reno Tournament May 27-29. I am looking for
a middle infielder and an outfielder.


We are a 55AAA team, and based on roster size, we can actually take 55AAA players that are on a different team that is
not attending the tournament.

So if you are on a 50AAA team, but old enough to play 55AAA, on a 55AAA team, or a 60AAA/M team and want to play
in the Reno Tournament but your team is not going, please email me at hc50ssoftball@gmail.com

Thank you for your time.
