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...

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.

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.

Thank you.

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

Discussion: looking for a 55 AAA so cal

To all:

Patrick played for us last year, he is a quality team mate and extremely intelligent hitter.

Hits for average but can add power when it is necessary.

He is a good addition to any team.

Let me know if you need any further information.

Discussion: In your whole softball career who was the individual(s) (coach, player, relative, etc) who had the most impact on your approach, development and how you play the game? And why?

My father - for always being around and teaching me to be humble, yet leave EVERYTHING on the field.

Craig - a coach I played slow pitch with for 10+ years. Taught me how manage and lead by example.

My Team mates for sticking with it through thick and thin.

Dudley Lightning - comes with balanced or end load options. Good durability so far. I get more pop than with my Worth SR Legit.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: 2 FLEX or NOT 2 FLEX

Here is my thought process, keeping in mind I coached High School golf for 10 years and my kid played in college and worked at Roger Dunn for 4 years.

I look at it this way. Do I have the swing speed to swing stiff shafts in a golf club, no. Therefore I swing regular shafts.

I have had more success using a 2 piece or endloaded bat than I have had swinging a heavier balanced bat.

Hope that helps.

Discussion: Session #3

Good Morning,

I know everyone is swamped with Session #1 and #2 at this point, but wanted to ask if we can assume the draft of Session #3 is close to the set schedule?

I want to send out the email to my team with all details and don't want to cause confusion by sending it out once, then having to update later.

Thank you again for all of your hard work on this event.
