Graciastars, nothing to get over. these play did not happen to my team. I sometimes umpire and wanted to know what the call would be.

so there is nothing to get over.

But thank you for your concern.

Steve thank you for that great description, I served in the USAF in the late 70's, had to cut my active duty time short, but finished my commitment in the reserves.

When at events that ask for all military past and present to stand and be recognized, I don't stand due to my less than full term active duty, by the way I have a full honorable discharge from both active and reserve duty.

After reading your definition I will from today forward stand and be recognized.

Thank You for your kind words sir.

I just don't understand why the defense is penalized, when the throw was on line and it went out of play because it hit the base runner which was in the way of a great throw.

If the ball does not go over the fence that runner was not advancing because he slide and the ball hit him on the head.

i think it should be dead ball no advancing, once it went over the fence.

Nancy great point, the runner was ok, LOL.

My point if these would have been a play from second to first, and the runner going to second gets hit on a throw to first that would have been called for interference.

I don't think he did it intentionally, but the ball did leave the field of play because of his head.

I just think it should be a dead ball no advance or advantage or disadvantage to either team.

No Dave he did not go across the diamond, LMAO. (little league)

What I don't understand the throw was on line, the runner was in the base line, it just so happened it hit him on the head and went up in the air over the fence. One of those things that can happen.

My point is why is the defense penalized for the ball hitting an offensive player.

Everyone did there job correctly, good throw good base running.

Ball ends up over the fence never hit the ground.

I would think dead ball no advancement!

Ball is hit to the outfield, runner on first heads to 3rd base, ball is thrown towards 3rd, hits runner on the head (ouch!) and goes over the fence, out of play.

What is the call?

Discussion: called out

I was watching a youtube video of team Kitty VS mavericks in Las Vegas Worlds.

first batter walks up to batters box and wipes out the front line of box.

Umpire calls him out, never heard of such a thing. I believe, that is an incorrect call. I don't understand how an out can be recorded there. I think he can eject him, but I don't understand an out.

there was never a pitch drown, so how can there be an out.

Someone please explain?

Nancy, all the post that I have seen from you come with a lot of knowledge and well meanings.

But if you know anything about PDF you should know that anyone can take a PDF, as long as they have access I.E. PDF rewrite and open it and enter data onto document.

So you have a bracket that Dave has already posted on the board, all that is need is to add data. this should happen at the end of the day over an adult beverage or non alcohol their choice.

Why not give your valuable customers what they ask for, how is that not the way to improve your end product. Business 101.

I understand being over loaded with work, FINE! Get help is all I am saying, lots of retired individuals out there that can handle this at a reasonable cost.

How long can this continue to go, without a solution.

Because of some one wanting ultimate control.

Does not make any sense to this softball player (Business Man)

titanhd, not keyboard geniuses, brains my friends simple brains.
I guess you think it's about knocking this association.
you are wrong sir, it's about making it better!

It took me less than 10 minutes to copy and paste the information.

So the question is simple why don't they just do it.

Nothing more, nothing less.

so stay humble and get with technology, it will make your world much better. get rid of that old flip phone and get a Iphone. LOL

This is so simple, my 10 year old great nephew can do it.

Copy the brackets on an open PDF so you can fill in the names and then post back on the web page just as it is done with the blank bracket.

As I stated before and was erased doesn't take a brain surgeon.

I think SSUSA can get a local college kid and pay him $200.00 per session just to keep it up during the Vegas Nationals.

Let's see if my math work here 623 teams X $745.00 per team entrance

$464,135.00

5 sessions at $200.00 per session = $1,000.00

leaving $463,135.00 for other expenses.

so $1,000.00 keeping your membership happy seems like a pretty good invest me to me.

I hope someone else can agree.

By the way don't tell me that a lot more expenses are incurred.

I know that, but at the end of the day I am sure $1,000.00 does not hurt at all.

Dave, just like old time. LOL

I still say you need help. maybe on a part time basis or something.

Don't take it personally Mr. Dave, not meant for you, its meant to better this organization.


Just like to see it catch up with technology and give its member up to date information, which it lacks and fails tremendously.

You must agree with that, Dave.

Wishing I was there, but circumstances and injuries did not allow me to attend.

Tim, thank you for working hard at getting up the above scores. With that said it is SAD that no others have been posted, the lack of information with regards to score on this web site is very sad.

Goes to show bigger is not always better, a smaller organization continues to out perform SSUSA, when it comes to posting scores.

All the money that is being charged per team and over 600 teams and SSUSA can't get these small piece of information to it's member really "sucks".

But again thank you for doing your part.

Discussion: Major++

Truthseeker16, the problem is not stepping up, it is a fact in the east no one wants to play Major plus for the simple reason there not enough teams, our team went to Eastern nationals, we where the only 55 major plus there.

The ranking systems stinks, but i don't have a way to fix it.

Need SSUSA to start moving more teams up to plus level.

Maybe look at amount of homeruns hit in a game and if team is going over the max on a continues bassis, move them.

They have a ruff road with this.

I don't agree with the fact if you win tournaments you are automatically moved up.

We won a lot last year including Vegas, but while we won it, we did not hit one homerun over the limit.Now here we are in the plus division.

Discussion: Major++

As far as I am concern (I know most won't care) I don't see why this has come up, this team has not broken or even bent any rules. they simply within the rules have put together a great team, why are they being penalized for it.

If I was playing that age group, I would be targeting them as the team to beat.

I would also be trying to get on that team.

As for them have a sponsor, great for them all the power to them.

I can not believe SSUSA has created a special division for one team.

Don't like it. Not right!!!~!

Timberworks I am impressed that your team has done so great for so long, If I get a fake ID and move to your state can I play on your team.

LMAO.

Good Luck in the SUPER Major Plus Bracket.

PA I am sorry that's garbage! If they are the best, they are the best period, that's like saying the Redsox and the Yankees have to spot runs because their payroll is much more than other teams.

I call BS, if this was my team I would be going insane, I have played both on and against major plus teams, have given up runs and have had runs given to my team. But imposing a special racking just for one team, again i call BS.

Discussion: Hitter Not Running

Stupid, stupid rule, needs to change, what if the guy was slow running to first and was throw out by a fielder, how is that different, only because he went to the dugout to get his glove, thinking the last run of the inning was scoring?

this rule should be changed simply because when the hit a sit rule was put for HR the need to touch a base after the 5th or 7th run went out the door.

My 2 cents
