it's funny you should tell me to be patient. When they where handing it out I was last in line and they ran out when it was my turn. LMAO

I bring up another association so this one could learn from them, where there is a will there is a way.

I enjoy playing SSUSA, but the are not up to today's technology when it come to keeping us informed.

Scores and winners of tournament are important to all.

TM has tried to post scores in the past, but if SSUSA was to look at how others do it they may see how easy and efficient it can be.

Just wanting to better this board.

Wishing all a Merry Christmas and happy holiday's.

I don't believe it's that difficult. It just takes someone who wants to do it.

Keep getting excuses, with no results on this matter.

Bottom line ISSA no matter what size tournament, they get it done.

Quit passing on the buck, just have an I.T. person look into this matter and allow access to the website by certain personal.

This is not rocket science.

At the end of the day it will only make this a much better organization.

I believe it's in the best interest of SSUSA to keep all informed and coming back to this web page.

What I don't understand is, SSUSA can put up a survey, for questions about counts and want nots. But no one can post scores.

This is by far the largest senior softball organization in the country, but it's second best on technology to keep it's members informed.

ISSA does it so easily, they even post pictures of games and teams that place in the tournament, along with MVP.

Don't understand why this organization refuses to move into the 21st century.

I guess, I should stop asking why. I have yet to get a response on this issue that makes any sense. (maybe find a better I.T. staff)

Dave,

I read the ruling on players release. With that said, I have been on both sides of this coin. When a player wants to leave, i have the same attitude as "swing for the fences".

But it seems that some managers are like scorned EX wives. So you have to go to court to get anything done. That court is SSUSA staff. I was lucky two years ago and Mr. Hennesy got involved in my issue and resolved the matter. I am sure he had better things to do than deal with a petty issue such as this. That is why I feel that if the player wants out of a team it should be automatic once a season.

Why should any manager have that much control over a player specially when players pay dues to this organization.

At the end of the day it's just a bad marriage, let the divorce go through and be done with it.

My opinion.

Dear Tim,

Ok, Sammy superstar has screwed a good team but he is stuck playing for team B for the rest of the season on him. Doesn't SSUSA have to clear that player before he can play on another team, therefore SSUSA notifies team A that the no longer have Sammy on roaster.

On another note, please review ruling on bat interference, I think you missed that one in the winter national. No out can be recorder on a bad throw that hits a bat that is not in the playing field or did not interfere with a play being made on a runner. Dead ball runners go back to previous base is the call.
next time. thank you

Happy Holidays to you and yours Tim.

Here we go again SSUSA I thought this was going to be addressed this winter meeting.

I believe if a player wants out of a team, it should not be up to the manager to release him, as long as he has returned any and all equipment that was given to him by said team the player should be allow to move on to another team once in a calendar year.

What reason would anyone want to keep a player who does not want to play for them on their roaster, except for them wanting to hurt that player.

That is not sportsman like. SSUSA should address this issue with the player in mind. It's the players who are SSUSA not the managers.

As far as not being release by a manager that is petty and another word that I will not use on this board that also starts with P.

MY 2 cents.

are you playing with any team now?

It may be helpful to state your previous playing. Are you new to the area?


Look in to Florida half century league as a way to get started back into playing.

Also Boca has a Tuesday and Thursday morning league and there is a club that plays Mon, Wed and Fridays in Pompano 4 fields.

Lots of ways to get back into softball.

Good Luck

Discussion: bats on playing field

Thank You for the ruling info on 8.4. as I was trying to explain, the ball was thrown and there was no play that could have been on the runner coming home. the catcher tried to catch the ball but is was so wild that it hit 2 bats that where next to the batters box against the fence, therefore once this happened dead ball should have been called and no runners could advance or have been called out. According to this rule. I think they missed that one, but since I have been known to be too vocal sometimes, I was not allowed to state the facts and I knew the rule.

I always thought it was dead ball no advancement. I just don't understand why an out.

Bad throws now help a team out!!!!

Question for staff.

On deck batter is waiting to come to the plate,( swinging several bats warming up) batter hits ball for a base hit with runners advancing, coming home. Defense throws home wildly, on deck batter had several bats in his hands, as the batter hits ball, he (on deck player) puts bats against the fence and runs up to batters box area to tell runners ball has been thrown home, ball is not close to plate and is thrown so wild that it hit bats that have been placed against fence.
my question why is an out recorded there, should it not have been rule a dead ball with no advancement.

how is a mistake on the defense be a negative on the offense.

Mike, they have leagues that play twice a week. Besides that we have a Florida half century league that plays once a month in the state (travels from venue to venue). If you also like golf the have over 50 courses. PS buy a golf cart everyone has one they even have parking stalls at all the stores just for carts LOL.

Google both the Villages and Florida half century for more info.

Good luck GO CANES!!!!!

Mike, what you need to do is get out of the cold weather in Michigan, turn south, change your color selection to Orange and Green, (the real U of M) and move to Florida.

we play year round, lots of teams to choose from and you won't have any problems getting picked up.

Just my 2 cents from Florida. LOL

Good luck

Doc, is a great teammate and an asset to any team, he can run, catch and hit. He played on our 55 team and was very helpful when called upon.

Good luck Doc.

Staff, question:

team gets rated to next level, major to major plus. if a player does not wish to continue with that team for the next season, is he a major plus player prior to ever playing at that level or can he still retain his major status.

Discussion: 2017 SSUSA Senior Masters

Mike, I just want say, don't you think that every 1.21 senior bat is hot out of the wrapper. I been asked many of time which bat to swing. I am in no way in your league when it comes to power, but I believe I work hard on my swing in the gym,at BP. With all that said I believe and tell everyone who ask which is the best bat out there, i say the one, you are most comfortable with in you hands.

I believe working out and BP at our age is more important than the bat. also there is one other thing i do and that is video tape my swings and try to stay consistent in my swing.

I wanted to thank who ever posted the pool game scores for the 50 major plus bracket, I hope it did not take a lot of effort.

With that said why can't it be done across all division, is it really that hard? Or is it just that SSUSA does not want to post, I simply don't get it.

Please, please try to get with the times. All players want to see what other divisions are doing, I still can't and won't believe it's that difficult.
