Is Google maps delinquent in updating their map showing the connection of the two parts of La Pata?

Thank you,

C'mon guys.... Be Nice.

Patrick is a good guy who tried channels.

But he is a little handcuffed in that his employer doesn't allow him to use his phone during normal business hours. Perhaps an accommodation can be made to help him out.

Discussion: Price Went Up? Worlds

Actually, most qualifiers increased in price this year between 4% and 8% over last years prices.

But at the same time, most municipalities at least in California have raised their field rental fees due to cost of labor, fuel, insurance, etc...

Even Big League Dreams raised their entry fees from $3 per person to $5 per person.

Worlds last year was $695, so its only a 7.2% increase. Which I think is the first increase since 2014. ( I could be wrong on that one. )

Discussion: New team division drop process

Word of advice, having lived through this process...

To answer #3...

Once you are dropped back, you can't add ANY players from a higher rating for 1 year, meaning you don't have 3 chips.

I.E. If you are dropping from 50AAA to 50AA ( we did this ), I don't have access to 3 50AAA chips. If we need players, we access 55AAA or 60M players.

If you have players that carry multiple ratings across different age brackets, you may also lose access to those players.

Hope this helps...

Discussion: looking for traveling team

Kiko34,

Not to be a dark cloud... but if you are looking to play 50's, you are not eligible until Winter Worlds in November ( or any other 2017 roster event).

In order to qualify for 50's you have to turn 50 prior to December of the season in which you want to play.

Dave,
You are correct. I missed the plus.

Paco - please ignore my misinformation for this situation.

Discussion: THIS IS AT SSUSA

Do you already have 3 55M chips on your team? If so, then the 50M is the 4th chip.

I have run into the same issues as well, with a player carrying a rating. But they players carry the rating that they had when they stopped playing SSUSA, the two year clock to be able to appeal a rating stops when they player stops playing.

( we had a player that played with us, stopping in 2014 when we were still rated 50AAA, we are now rated 50AA and he can't rejoin us until next year.)

I wish you the best of luck, but the question to ask SSUSA is "who are our 55M chips already?"

Its not about 1 player, its about having 4 players at the higher rating if I understand the rules correctly.

There is an easy and safe answer. If it has the SSUSA stamp on it, its good.

I have the Combat Dirty Reloaded which is 25.5 ounces.

Discussion: Looking for a couple of players for St George

Good Evening,

We are a 50 AA team from Southern California looking for a couple of players for St George. Need 1 outfielder and 1 utility player.

Here is the twist: I am restricted to players that equal 50AA, I am not allowed any 50AAA chips since we were recently dropped down to 50AA.

So, if you are 55AAA player whose team is not going to St George, but you still want to, let me know.

Thanks,

Bill Dodge

Discussion: Anyone know of a score keeping app for iOS that allows 11. Fielders at a time?

My apologies, my brain kicked in on 11 and ignored the word "fielders".

I don't know that you will find one that will handle 11 fielders since it is an anomaly to normal softball.

I have heard rumor that there is another stat/team management software in the works.

email me at hc50ssoftball@gmail.com

Discussion: Are possible changes ahead for future TOC tournaments

Staff

A suggestion might be to get some feedback from the membership before renewing or extending.

In my opinion, the TOC should be centrally located in the US making the travel time equal for all. Some of the teams from CA that I know have qualified and opted out is due to cost and time so close to the end of the holidays.

Just my humble opinion ( but still hoping to qualify for TOC some day).

Discussion: New Glove - Break in

I am sure there is information all over the forums, but I don't have the patience to search for it....

I recently got a brand new glove from Arizona, and was curious as to what players are using as a best practice for break in, and how long break in periods are for most gloves today.

Thank you

Bill
