Discussion: Power fading

one thing to do is video your swings and see which swing produced the furthest traveled ball, and try to duplicate in each at bat.

but with all that said need to hit the weights in order to keep up the strength.

Discussion: Get rid of the 1-1 count

Yeah, give me back my black magic and put in a blue dot or red dot and let me run around the bases when one goes over the fence!

I don't recall the time limits back in the day, games pretty much ended after 7 and the count was 0 & 0. I missed out on playing latter part of the nineties because of coaching my son. I enjoyed when I or a teammate hit a HR and we celebrated at home plate.

Today someone hits one out and it's par for the course.

As far as the 1 and 1 I really don't care if the first pitch is strike I am swinging, what ever the starting count is.

Discussion: Stealing other teams Softballs

I don't believe it's stealing if you just don't care enough to go and pick them up yourself.

If you drop a dollar on the ground and watch it fly away and don't bother to go after it. why should anyone bring it to you.

specially if you are at home drinking a beer.

my 2 cents.

Discussion: Stealing other teams Softballs

Ok let me get this straight, first if during a game which my team is playing I am retrieving our home run softballs I find softballs from the team we are playing against I will return them. But if I am out in the woods or sometimes swamp and I find balls of teams that have played earlier in the day and have gone home and did not pick them up because they did not want to get there feet dirty, I am sorry that ball is going to my BP bucket.

The same way is I don't want to get my feet wet they can keep my balls.

just remember we live in Florida and play in the south, a lot of fields with deep bushes and water behind them.

It's not stealing if you don't go get them.

Discussion: what happens when.

Staff, what happens when a 55 major plus player turns sixty and wants to move into that age group or lower age group.

1) what is his rating?

2) What if he still wants to play 55, how low can he play. I.E. AAA?

3) How does he affect lower level team?

Looking for clarity.

Thank You

Discussion: Runner's right to the base

So let me get this straight, you want the runner who is on the bag to move, so the fielder can make a play on a pop up.

Ok, so he moves off the bag, the fielder catches the ball and proceed to tag him, because he is off the bag. Double play?

I don't think so.

The runner does not have to move, nor shall he move in the direction off the ball. Just stay on the bag.

The umpire shall make the call, not the players.

If the runner simply stays put, there is no obstruction or interference.

Live ball, defense make a play.

Discussion: safety bag

Staff I have a questions due to rule changes.

When a ball never leaves the infield.

1) does the batter/runner have to step on the red bag?

2) if he steps on white, who's call is is it?

3) is it an appeal or automatic up to umpire?

4) which umpire?

5) must the ball be thrown?

Discussion: Spring Nationals

Dave, wanna wish your grand son a fabulous birthday and hope you enjoy your time with him.

Now getting back to what I posted, you make my point even greater. Looks like you guys need help, maybe you are over whelmend and under payed, cause you are a bit slacking and not hurting anybody but you organization, take your sweat time at the end of the day it is up to sponsors or teams to play SSUSA and pay entry fees.there are other organizations which you are very well aware exist and our putting out a better product, so much so that I have been watch live broadcast from the ISSA Myrtle beach tournament all day.
When has SSUSA had such an event and all there score are updated.

So keep doing what you are doing it's working great, but always remember someone is always trying to invent a better wheel.

by the way I will play where my team plays and if they ask to choose, maybe when it's a SSUSA tournament versus an ISSA i will remember who post first and who has better information to it's players.
do I need to say more.

Thank you a a wonderful weekend.

Discussion: Spring Nationals

It seems to me that SSUSA needs some parttime help, with all the senior softball players that are registered, maybe they can hire a couple to do tournament brackets. Less than a week away from a TOC and no brackets are posted.

Come on! there is SAD.

SSUSA has the most tournaments in the country and probably the best run, but I got tell ya, you are slow when it come to posting information on tournaments.

Please take some of the money that is being made here and invest in more manpower and better IT equipment.

Hope someone is listening.

Thank you Dave, I knew you had the answer. LOL

By the way I am much better with my verbal skills, rather than read.

But, I will try harder next time.

Staff, here we are March 5 and can't see names of team attending the Spring Nationals in Polk County, but out there in the wild, wild west, same tournament dates they have number of teams attending and field assignments.

I want to file discrimination against the Eastern seaboard. LOL.
